    Tomy "Rip, Rockin' Rollers" monster trucks


    Members do not see advertisements
    Was wondering if anyone has any of these or remembers them. I had all 3 trucks back in the 80's but they are long gone. There was a Jeep, Van and Pickup in the set and they had a rip cord at the back to start them up. They were really cool monster truck toys. I was looking for pics of them.

    I had the jeep and the van. I wish they sold the crush cars that were in the commercial for them though.

    I have the van "Monster Worm." Still runs like a charm. Wish I would've been wise enough at that young age to buy the other two. I swear I had the pickup at one point (was it blue or was the jeep blue? Other color was red), but don't know what happened to it if I did.

    I've searched high and low on eBay for them and never seen a single one.

    The van was yellow, Jeep was blue and the pickup was red. I remember seeing the commerical as a kid and going nuts. I agree too bad the cars didn't come with them. Jason, do me a favor man and take a picture of the Monster Worm!!! What a name eh. I always thought it should have been Rollin' Thunder!!!

    Jeep was blue. I had Monster Worm and the Jeep, which had "Texas Badlands" on the windshield, so that's what I called it. They were cool trucks but I never saw much of the pickup.

    Ahhh Ace I forgot I was supposed to take pics for you months ago! I had started searching for the red pickup that I used to have so I could take a pic of all three but never found it. Still not happy about that as I have no clue where it went, hoping it wasn't given away by a family member or something.

    I promise to take some pics of the van and the Jeep over the next few days for you!

    I remember the Rip Rockin Rollers went well with the Bigfoot hot wheels battery trucks, and the tanks made by Tonka.
