Heads up: IT TANK TURNS! Could this be a sign of what's to come? It's rear wheel drive, tiny (about two inches long) and quick! For turning, the rear wheels work opposed, no front wheel turning. It's more fun than I thought!
Can you make a video of the tank turn for us? I'd certainly love to see it.

OK, so maybe I wore the handle off my mailbox from checking it so much, but it's finally here! I called my friends and told them my Cybertruck arrived! This will have to do for the next year or two.

Left ours in the box until the nephew arrives post pandemic, so I can't tell.... is it plastic or die cast metal?

Probably easiest to just load it on YouTube and then give a link here.
Here goes. Best $20 I've spent all year. Instant classic, if you ask me. Big bucks one day for an original, first edition, unopened box version. If I were Mattel, I'd make a million more of these.

It's plastic, and has an on/off switch underneath, and a charge port for the built-in rechargeable battery, the remote has a trap door that releases a cord, you plug it in, and it recharges off the remote batteries (four AA's)

Ride-em-cowboy!! Turns like a bucking bronco.

If my CT does tank turns that fast I’m going to be very dizzy!

Great video though!! Thanks!!

Got mine today. Seems there are a few on eBay, some for less than twice the list price, if anyone wants one, though I suppose one can't tell if they are genuine.

Fedex wouldn't share a delivery date until the day they chose to deliver it. I thought the journey it took was interesting! Too bad Google only "goes to 10" destinations - but the last leg was only from Sacramento to San Jose.

One day, I think, I will put this little truck on the dashboard of my CT and retrace at least some of its steps. Who knew there was a place called Casa Blanca, New Mexico? There's a Fargo in Oklahoma? I have been given a nice geography lesson along with a cool toy.
