Venom Creeper advice needed
 
I recently picked up a new venom creeper kit along with some other items in a trade. It looks like these are no longer sold, so I would appreciate any feedback on what an appropriate value for a NIB venom creeper kit is. I wasn't able to find much information online, so I thought some folks here could provide some guidance. Thanks for any help!

Between me and my dad, we have 5 + another for spares, and they were all around $200 (used) to be honest id hold onto it for a bit, the value seems to be going up for creepers now that parts are becoming hard to find.

Thanks for the info, I know zero about these. It seems like a nice kit but there doesn't seem to many around. If I decide to sell it, I didn't want to ask a ridiculous price or give it away either. When did they stop selling these?

Looks like they were disco'ed in 2011.

I'm surprised I ended up with an unbuilt kit if it's been that long. I guess we all have some projects we never get around to! Glad to see it's not just me...

I left the hobby after selling my XR10....when I came back (early this year) I was surprised to see the venom, Losi and axial crawlers went the way of the dinosaurs.

I have an ax10 I don't really use and don't see many of those even, you're right.

I bought my Creeper kit when they hit $99. I figured for that price I couldn't go wrong since I already had a cheap radio sitting around collecting dust.

It's a fun truck to drive, but don't expect it to become a high dollar investment. They faded away for a reason.

I have a few creepers too, and I've hoarded some parts over the years.

When I spoke to Venom (Atomik) about finding the manufacturer to see if it was made under any other names or if they still had any backstock, I was told that the building that the manufacturer was in had burned down, and they went out of business, so there won't be any more parts.

At one point venom announced that a creeper 2 was in development, which obviously didnt happen. The manufacturer going out of business would explain it.
