Original Vintage Monster Beetle Decals from 1990

Recommended Posts

I have a complete set, still in the wrapper of decals for the MB that I am willing to part with to a good home. I have just dusted my MB off after 20 years plus in the attic and will just use it for bashing, it would be a shame to waste these on that.

Here are some pics, I can give more if required. As you can see from the pics of the backing sheet these are 100% genuine original and from the gunk on the tape I have never opened the packet.

Whatever that is meant to infer. I'm not in to ripping anyone off I just never got bothered to put the decals on way back when, was to eager to run and bash the thing. They've been sitting face down in a shoe box in the attic with me other spares since about '92. Just dusted the MB and my lunchbox off for my son so if I can use the cash to fund some spares for these I will be quite happy.

You would have gotten some nice $$$ if you had sold those before Tamiya announced the re-release. You can still get a good price for them since the sponsor decals arent the same. Good luck!

That's good to know, I loved the cars back in the day but the availability of parts meant they were broken as much as they were running. The re release of the lunchbox solved one problem and if they are re releasing the MB that will solve another. If I don't get a taker here I will put it on eBay but I thought I would give the community first opportunity.

Hi All

I posted some decals the other day that would have went to waste on the basher I am preparing for my son. I had planned to keep this lot but he's already broke the light bar from the bottom of the nose cone on the runner and I don't really see the point on keeping this for it to get bashed as well.

I am short of parts for my lunchbox and monster beetle to get them back in proper working order, more so for the beetle so would be open to trade rather than cash, no figures or swaps in mind so would be open to all offers, would prefer to pass it on as one lot though.

Any leads on tyres would be welcome, I swapped off the fronts back in the 90's for ribbed kingcabs (I think that's what they were) as it was mostly running on the beach. I've lost one of the original spikes in the interim years plus the rubber on the rears has not fared well with it being in a loft plus with it originally being glued to the rims.

Thanks





What should i be asking for this and the decals, does anyone have an idea? Is it worth anything now the re-release is coming out or should I just use it since I've got it?

Stock the lot on eBay now if you know of anyone who may be interested, decals and shell parts, the lot.
