Recently discovered I still had this....and it STILL works! (minus the light...) It is a 1981 Stomper 4x4...(Toyota SR5...I have been a Toyota 4x4 fan for a LONG time... Laughing )

Oh yeah!!!!
I had a few of them myself and the yota truck was one of them. I believe another that I had was a Jeep and a Subaru Brat. That is where it all started for me.

Well I had a Black Remote Control TransAm like the one from Smokey and the Bandit for 10 whole minutes one Christmas. But then my Aunt Sissy stepped on it. Aunt Sissy was about as wide as a 60 inch Plasma flat screen. It was basically the horror of Jurassic Park as a child 10 years before the movie Jurassic Park. But I loved her anyway. Ah the 80s.

Later I got a blue 4x4 Big Foot Remote Control. So bad

It is the "Aunt Sissy's" that make things like our toys collector items.....Very Happy

Here is another Stomper I found in my search through my old attic boxes. This one is in GREAT shape...better than even the picture shows. Is is a Subaru Brat (Jami, I thought of you as soon as I found this...lol) and the light still works on this one!!! Woohoo....... I haven't seen these things in probably 10 + years. It ia so awesome seeing these things and watching them run...re-living my 80's childhood cheers

Yes, they actually came with 2 sets of wheels: "Foam Indoor tires" and "rubber outdoor tires"

And I know I had more...including a J**p or 2.....the hunt continues.....

I also found about a dozen or so circa 1982 GI Joe figues that appear to be in great shape....packs, weapons and all! I am on a personal 80's treasure hunt!

Haha, when was the last time you cleaned your house?? It worries me that you're finding things from this era. Those are pretty awesome though. I haven't seen those things in years!
