Default Pb Maxima value?

Just dragged out my old Pb Maxima from the loft, dusted it down and to my amazement it still works fine after nearly 30 years! Also found a heap of spare parts for it which have never been used.
After searching around it seems these things are mega rare, none for sale worldwide on eBay!

It's in reasonable nick. Everything still works and nothing broken, aside from a few scrapes it seems good to go.

Could someone who knows about this stuff please give me an idea on value? Tia! 😀

Even though forum produced no posts/help to your question, IMO, the PB is no "Wayne Gretzky".

Fair point but it must have some value, I wasn't expecting a lot but it must be worth something? I may just 99p it on eBay and see what someone is willing to pay. ��

That's what I'd do if it didn't have any sentimental to me. Who knows, somebody in the UK might be looking for a Maxima parts buggy. PB Racing Maxima RC Racing Buggy Vintage Ultra Rare Global Shipping eBay

When I looked up the RC, I don't recall seeing any PB Maximas in my RCCA magazines back in the day. Was there a USA importer for them?

If the PB Maxima came outta the box like this...

then I would have remembered it . The tires and wheels (in the picture) make the PB look Schumacher-ish.

Not sure about the market for these in the USA but there were a few about in the UK years ago, not sure when or why they stopped selling them, I seem to remember the Pb mini mustang was more popular (probably because it was cheaper to buy).
The one you pictured looks very nicely done, but essentially yes, that's how they came, albeit unpainted
I'll take a couple photos later of mine, don't expect anything new and shiny though.. Lol
