I’ve been working on a spreadsheet that is nearing the goal of cataloging all of the various RC cars Tyco released over the years. Most of this info came from the awesome guys at the www.dragonshobbies.com. It’s full of holes, and it gets especially spotty for the newer Mattel-made toys (I’m old-school). One other thing to mention is that the Year column is also probably inaccurate, I just put down the first year I can confirm the car was out, but many of them were likely made earlier than the year posted. For example, I may have spotted a car in a 1992 dealer catalog, but it may have first come out in 1989. Another thing you’ll notice is that I have several double entries. This is because I am using each car’s model number as a unique identifier and many cars had 2 frequencies and color schemes to choose from.
Here it is:
I appreciate any info that might help me fill the gaps. All of the blank fields should be highlighted red, and if I was unsure of anything I typed a “???”. It’s entirely possible that I made mistakes, if so I would love to be corrected. 🙂
I’m also interested in finding a better way to share this info online (ie. with photos). I thought of doing a wikia, but I would be a horrible admin and I can’t afford hosting. Wikipedia maybe?
