At the same bootsale i got my latest Monster Beetle project from, i found this.
A Wild Willy rip off!!!
I've named him, Wild Wally ;-)
Its one of those old bump and go things that runs using 2 wheels underneath, on a rotating base. When it hits an obsticle, it 'turns' and drives the other way. These toys were popular in the 1980's, I hade quite a few different ones, mostly cars but my best one was a 1/8 scale night rider - the light on the front actually worked too!
I dont have a willy to compare this jeep too (i didnt phrase that well did i?) but it does look a like the basic shell was taken from a real tamiya wild willy. Willy himself also looks very similar - but he's made from cheapo plastic!
Anyway, he's wild wally, and he may be converted to R/C someday :-)
