This 1/64 scale Monster Truck series from Greenlight Collectibles has been kicking me right in the nostalgia ever since I found a mud covered Bigfoot in the hobby section of a big box store a few months ago. Since then, I’ve added two awesome trucks that dominated the TV on Sunday mornings of my youth.
First one I snagged was the Krimson Krusher. How could I forget this truck’s legendary double-dually setup? There’s not a lot of info on this truck across the great vast Internet today, but I remember this truck just for those wheels. I do, however, recall that the truck I used to watch on TNT had gold wheels. Red and gold always work well together, but Greenlight gave this 1/64 monster silver wheels. Another negative point on this model is the rollbar. It does not fully extend into the truck bed and just sort of floats there. Unfortunately, this means the rollbar structure is weak and naturally, I broke it...
The third truck added to this new collection of mine was an obvious choice. USA-1 was Bigfoot’s arch-nemesis, fueled by the Chevy vs. Ford rivalry. I found out the hard why these Greenlight models are “collector’s items” and not toys after my three year old son surgically removed the truck from its chassis. He asked to roll it around on my desk and I looked away for only a quick second! A few dabs of superglue and the old Chevy was ready to ride again.
I’m not a fan of the decision to stamp the truck’s website on the tailgate for authenticity sake. The headlights are simply painted on the front grille, too. Look for a “dirty version” caked with mud hitting the pegs soon!
