If you were too young to enjoy the Tamiya Wild One R/C buggy kit when it was originally released in 1985 we’ve got some great news, Tamiya is re-releasing the Wild One for 2012 with all its original charm! Larger pictures after the jump.
I had an original Tamiya Wild One has a kid and loved it. It must have been around 1987 or so. Believe it or not but the lack of good suspension is what made that car so much fun. As the hobby evolved I looked for better and better handling cars but looking back I don’t think I’ve ever had as much as I did when I had my Wild One. I think I’m going to buy my kid one this Christmas. He has a number of more modern R/C cars but I think he’ll get a kick out of seeing the Wild One bouncing all over the the place. Any idea what the re-released Wild One will cost?
Sorry, no word on pricing yet for this kit. I’ll update here when it becomes available. Hope your kid loves it!
