Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!: Crash and Rebuild Monster Trucks

I’d wager most people that played with LEGO growing up made cars and trucks with the bricks and promptly crashed them. Hammacher Schlemmer is offering a set of RC toy monster trucks which takes that idea and runs with it.

Crash and Rebuild Monster Trucks aren’t made from LEGO, but they do seem LEGO-like in how the bodies and drivers click into the chassis. The trucks can go up to 9 mph, and if you have a head-on collision, the driver unseats and flies through the air, as body panels go flying.

The set comes with two chassis, four bodies, and four drivers. Also included is a pair of 2.4GHz remote controllers, which work from up to 49-feet away. Power comes from rechargeable batteries inside the car chassis that charges via a USB port and provides up to 30 minutes of driving per charge. These aren’t cheap at $99.95 for the set, but they do look like lots of fun for kids.
