For the third time in as many weeks you have snatched away a crucial piece!!


i wonder who can that be? Dodgy

nah, just kidding.  Big Grin
The ones that didn’t get away arrived today!!
It was an elusive Bnib HitToys Rocky that I was after last week, but I also couldn’t help myself to pick up the Birthday Celebration set too!!

You didn't already have these Muddy???

Curious...Does that Birthday House have a base to it or none?
[Image: super-smiley-emoticon.gif]
nice finds muddy!

i have to ask though...
How much is a bnib rocky going for?

the birthday celebration is also a nice find.

but rocky.?!
No Super, we only had the Birthday set open on the shelf to play with, but it is missing the cake piece...also I had just recently realized from info here on BPT, that the motorized Rocky that we have on the shelf was the FisherPrice release, and that we didn’t have the motorized HitToys version at all, so I have been searching for a while now for one BNIB...and now very happy to have finally added to our collection.Smile
Also, there’s no base to the house.
Play nice & have fun!!Smile

i'm not quite sure i understand?

fisher price? rocky? 
doesn't equate.

are there different variations of rocky?
it is/was a tru exclusive.
and it was before the fisher price merger...

although Idea fisher price  did have close connections with tru.?! Idea

are/were there variations of rocky?

just curious Dodgy
There are (at least?) three variations of Rocky. Tomy, HiT and Fisher Price. FP has a grey roof, Hit has white roof, and Tomy’s version (the first) has Rocky facing the opposite way than the newer versions. And the crane magnet sets into a little divot in the connected car. I think the Tomy version has light grey (white?) wheels. I’m partial to the Tony version, then the HiT, with FP bringing up the rear Smile, but still pretty cool.

Yes! There are sooooo many different little appointments, color variations, and design differences throughout the three of them, that there are too many to list...eyebrows too!

I hadn’t even noticed the eyebrows and other little details that are different across the models. And I also forgot to include the plarail variant that comes Percy and inexplicably doesn’t have a motor!

We don't have a Rocky in the Future World collection but I have had close to 10 pass through my hands. I would buy non-working ones, repair them and re-sell for a little profit but I would only do this with the Rocky version that has the 12 small black wheels. You see, not only would I repair and get them back into circulation, I would swap out those small black wheels for the common gray ones. before re-selling because I like to use the black ones for customs.
