the last one in the box sold for 250, i won it, the one before  that sold for 500 and iam the one who use the buy now, the seller was a member here turbobandit who posted his collection here recently, he was a bit attached to that one and asked if we could cancel the transaction, i hated it but did. the one i got for 250 came from him also

Hey thanks, a year ago or so I saw a red bandit, brand new in the box on ebay for 300 or so and I thought that was a bit much, but now, let me find another one like that for sale, that's a wrap!
Thanks for this forum and thanks for the greeting!




about a little over a year ago i was on ebay and there was a red one in the box, the bid was at 50-60 bucks, it was the first time id ever thought to try and find one so i bid 100 bucks, shortly after i was out bid, i really figured that was gonna be the top dollar amount it would sell  for  so i bid again 250 bucks just  knowing that would cover anybody nickle and diming the bid at the end, when i logged back on it had sold for well over 300

if you wanna bandit you just pretty much gotta bite the bullet when a nice one comes up, altho every now and then you can get a deal on one if it slips pass the radar of everyone else. the red bandits are just about unobtainable, i suppose most parents bought their kids black bandits back then and awhole lot of the red ones didnt sell because the black ones are listed about 20 times to 1 over the red ones

Welcome to the forum. Best of luck in your search for that red Tyco Bandit.

well got the red bandit yesterday, turns out it doesnt need much tlc at all!!! theres hardly any scratches top or bottom, the chrome parts are perfect as far as scrapes are concerned, i was gonna put another chrome front bumper on it since i have an extra and the one that came with it was broken, but the chrome on the original is almost all still in tact with no wear so looks like ill be fixing it. looks like it was only played with in the dirt since it has alot of dirt on it and in it in some places but way better than i expected, turns out the eratic steering was the remote, i tried one of my others and it was just as it should be, the back tires and gears are messed up though, luckily i have extras
