Toy Wonder: The Robin Dragster

From about 2000 to 2006 I stood at Toy Fairs, large and small, around the North of England. In those days, to stay up to date, I read widely about vintage toys in general and not just my beloved space toys. One of the beauties I was aware of and saw on other more 'select' vintage toy stalls was the Kenner Robin Dragster from the Batman Animated Series. It really was a rather non-descript plastic green and red buggy but it commanded huge prices [and still does] no doubt due to limited sales originally. I personally like the box art more than the toy but nevertheless together they form one of those modern toys that can genuinely be called rare and remains firmly on my Car Boot Finds From Heaven list! If only!

  1. Hmmm, neat! With all the pieces raised up, it could be a really cool space toy (like for Major Matt Mason except perhaps for the sizing). I've never seen this one, fascinating. I love the green translucent um 'wings' and 'canopy', those are unusual and nifty! Nice post, thanks!
