Default I have 4 Raiders lol

I started in RC with a Kyosho Raider now venturing into Helicopters.

When I discovered EBAY a while back I decided to "get back" some child hood memories. I bid and won a NIB Kyosho raider that even still smelled new. I payed 80 bucks for it back in 2003. I also collected the series: Original Raider, Turbo Raider a second original raider and a Raider Pro.

All are NIB and totally brand new old stock. The boxes are really nice shape too.

How collectible is the Raider now?..

If you wanted one badly for a collection or for sentimental reasons how much would you be willing to pay?

Thanks.

Do you have pictures of the Raiders? I've never seen one before and I LOVE Kyosho.

I have only seen them go for between $40-50 on eBay in the past.

I enjoy the 'collecting' aspect of RC, but you have to run something!

I'm afraid the market for vintage Kyosho stuff doesn't seem too hot, with the exception of the Vanning/Landjump series. I wouldn't expect more than $100 per kit, at least based on what I've seen in the past.

I agree, it seems that even the market for vintage Tamiya stuff has slowed. There is currently a NIB striker on eBay for $99 and there is not one bid on it yet which is pretty crazy (even considering the Striekr wasn't that great of a buggy)

Yes, sure.

Not good shots of them, but two of them can be seen in the pile of toys of mine lol. This pic shows my dedication to RC and probably my insanity as well.. please view at own risk lol.

This is good, because I still need a Raider ARR that is NIB for my collection. Haven't seen one yet on ebay and no one knows WTH I am talking about on craiglist lol.
