While we’ve been hearing speculation that this truck was coming down the pipeline we hadn’t seen anything official until just a few days ago. Check out the new Tamiya Lunchbox Black Edition. Much like previous special editions, the Black Edition is mechanically the same as the original Lunch Box with just a few cosmetic changes. The Black Edition Lunch Box features a black ABS molded body and black wheels, as opposed to the yellow components of the original. While we’re on the subject of wheels, the press release says they’re chrome, but the pics show black wheels. Maybe they’re black chrome, your guess is as good as ours. The new version also includes special Black Edition decals.
The ever popular 1/12 scale R/C Lunch Box van is now available as a special “Black Edition” model, featuring a stylish combination of a Black ABS molded body and chrome-plated wheels. The R/C Lunch Box (first released in 1987) was loved for its camp appearance as much as for its R/C performance. The boxy minivan body is raised up over the monster truck wheels to ensure that this R/C van will get attention anywhere you choose to drive it.
