Taiyo Cyclone
SOLD: AU$200
Scale: N/A
Type: Ready to run
Year of release: 1992
Condition: NIB (New In Box). Complete. Mint.


This is a brand new in box, original Taiyo Cyclone. Absolutely mint in box, never run. Complete with box, transmitter, aerial and manual. You will not find better. I have not even removed it from the box for photos.

The box has some minor wear, but is quite excellent. Everything is complete. This car takes the 9.6v Battery Pack, or can be run on 8 x AA batteries (a special optional battery tray is included so you can power it either way – each method delivers the exact same voltage and power of course)

Nothing beats “brand new” when it comes to vintage R/C toys. Don’t miss this chance to own one of the very last brand new Taiyo Cyclones left in the world.

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


The “Taiyo Cyclone” is actually the original name for this model, and it was first released by Taiyo in Japan in 1992. It was also sold under license via Tyco and Metro branding in some markets including Australia, and called the “Scorcher”. To be honest though, “Cyclone” is a much better and more appropriate name – given this vehicle’s ability to do crazy high speed spins. It was one of a succession of crazy, tough, high speed ready-to-run R/C vehicles created by Taiyo during the late 1980s and early 1990s as they explored new and unusual R/C vehicle concepts. These entertaining toys were a huge hit for Taiyo, elevating them above longtime rival R/C toy company Nikko in many people’s minds, as the #1 manufacturers of high quality and fun R/C vehicles.
