    Does anyone know anything about this battle convoy set? I picked it up on ebay years ago for next to nothing. It's in mint condition, looks like it's never been used. I searched online but only found the chinese versions and little else.

    It's a knockoff of some description by the look of things (chest mold on OP is wrong, "High Speed Container" in glorious technicolour on the trailer, awesome Engrish - Super Dash Construction ftw!). That said, if it's vintage some knockoffs can have value - not sure how old this is though or whether it's a particularly rare one.

    I think this is one of the KO's that actually has some value.

    Yeah, this might have some value as one of those odd pieces

    Also "The picture on the box may be a little different from the product inside the box" :lol :lol :lol :rolleyes:

    Don't know if this helps, but a seller had posted a similar one on ebay for 125 plus shipping a few months back... Had it in my watch list and it didn't sell. Your box seems to be in slightly better condition then the one I saw if I can remember right.

    thanks for the replys, I've never seen one pop up on ebay since I got mine. It is an odd ko, especially with the different gun mold and decals.

    This is a KO but it does have a good amount of value still since it's an 80's KO.

    It's based off of the Diaclone Battle Convoy.

    there's a little info on it HERE

    Here's a photo of the one I thought it was originally. lol
