Default What is a NIB original Blackfoot worth???

My first R/C was a used blackfoot. I hammered the crap out of that thing...even made a set of chains and skis for it in the snow, trailer, etc. A few years back, a buddy of mine was moving and asked me if I wanted an R/C truck that he never built. Needless to say it was an original Blackfoot. I am wondering when was the last time you could get a blackfoot, and what is a ballpark of value? The box is openned, but everything is attached to the trees and still in bags.

This is one he bought new in the 80's, and never got around to building it. He got tired of moving it from house to house when he moved. The ones I saw on Tower looked like they had different stickers and different wheels. Am I mistaken with that?

Thanks, but no. What made me wonder was I looking for some sand scorcher stuff on EBAY and I saw that some of the original Tamiya stuff was outrageous in price, and I could not find any new Blackfoots on there. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas.

The original Blackfoot was really just a Frog with different body, shocks and wheels etc. There was a couple newer Blackfoots (King or Super or whatever they called them) and they sucked. Tamiya re-released the original Frog, and at the same time brought back the Blackfoot as it was originally. There may have been a subtle difference, but I didn't notice any when I helped put one of the new versions together... I had a couple of the originals back in the late 80's.

I have a super blackfoot, and I know it is way different that the original. I had several of both. The new one has the hex drivelines, trailing arm suspension in the back, horizontal shocks, and the back-hoe style tires, not terra tires. I paid $40 for my blackfoot used back when I was in middle school and I hammered the crap out of it. I probably had 1000 hours on it before I gave it to a friend who still has it and plays with it occasionally (just for nostalgia). The thing must have had well over 100 sets of dog bones in it. It really didnt like having a locked diff in the back.

If it is the origianl blackfoot, it is worth a pretty penny, especially if the box is good. This truck was credited as the first kit that got the monster truck craze going in the 80's, I had one I bought new in 85 I think. Tamiya has NEVER re-released the original blackfoot, they made a super/king/ and now xtreme blackfoot since then but none of them are the same as the original. The complete body set alone could go as high as 100.00. The frog has been re-released but not the blackfoot.

the orv chassis cars still dont bring big dollars, but of course will be worth a little more still boxed up and unbuilt i would say you are looking somewhere around a ben-spot. on a perfect day you might come close to a buck and half.
