Remote Control Authentic WWII Battling Tanks

Remote Control Authentic WWII Battling TanksWith authentic period details, realistic sounds, and infrared “projectiles,” these remote controlled tanks re-enact the famous armored clashes of World War II. At 1:24 scale, each tank’s weathering, battle damage, and authentic period details are clearly identifiable including the zimmerit coating on the German Tiger I, meant to thwart magnetic anti-tank mines, and the shell mark on the U.S. Army M4A3 Sherman. Both tanks generate realistic sounds while they move on realistic treads with suspension. Each is fitted with a cannon that fires an infrared beam 25′ away at a sensor on each tank. The tanks generate an explosion sound and vibrate to indicate they have been hit; five hits results in victory, which shuts the tank down. From up to 60′ away, the remote control enables you to depress the barrel by 3º for shots while in defilade, raise it by 17º, and move the turret 330º, in addition to forward, backward, left, and right turns. Includes a practice target.

Evel Knievel Children’s Chopper

Evel Knievel Children's ChopperOffered exclusively by Hammacher Schlemmer, this is the limited-edition children’s replica of the street cruiser ridden by American motorcycle daredevil Robert Craig “Evel” Knievel. Knievel, who set the world record by jumping over 19 cars, preferred riding his chopper when not performing stunts. Approved and certified for accuracy by Knievel’s son Kelly, the cycle’s 12-volt motor tops out at a conservative 4 mph, ideal for a child’s leisurely spin around the block. A twist of the throttle propels the chopper; releasing the throttle disengages the motor, bringing the cycle to a stop. A switch on the chassis changes direction from forward to reverse. The chopper features a low-slung seat, high handlebars, extended front fork, and chrome-finish trim. Equipped with a working headlight and training wheels, the chopper is decorated with Knievel’s iconic patriotic detailing. Includes a numbered certificate of authenticity
