Scale: 1/14
Type: Ready To Run
Year of release: 1988
Condition: NIB New In Box. Mint.


This is a brand new in box, original Taiyo Aero Grabber 4WD

This buggy in mint, brand new. Never run. Truly a collector’s piece. You will not find better.

The box is perhaps a 9 out of 10, with very minimal edgewear, and beautiful images. It comes complete with all paperwork, in an excellent box with all inserts. The transmitter, complete with “Turbo” function, is mint also.

The early “black box” Taiyo buggies are among my favourite ready-to-run vintage R/C models, due to their high quality, great looks and real sponsor decals. All early Taiyo models were Made In Japan. This is a rare chance to add a mint Aero Grabber 4WD to your collection.

Please see the photos to understand the condition. Feel free to contact me to find out more.


The Taiyo Aero Grabber 4WD is one of Taiyo’s early off road buggies, and was first released in 1988. It’s sleek design, large high quality tyres, and compact chassis make it a highly entertaining off-road machine – capable of speeds up to 19Km/H, and a “turbo” function on the transmitter. The buggy is also adorned with a range of real-world sponsor logos, and is really a pleasure to drive – typical of the high quality and high-performance R/C buggies that Taiyo was manufacturing in Japan during the mid-late 1980s.
