    Ha ha ha, I love watching these.

    It's been asked before but does anyone know where you can buy these complete.

    eBay have the shells but you have to buy a driveline and put them together.

    I want a complete unit ready to go out of the box.

    I'd love one of these too. I reckon they'd be great fun whilst sitting around at camp

    Dunno, I've seen you after a few at a campfire. I reckon you'd drive into the fire! (Or was it me that had the few? I get confused. )

    Not quite out of the box but a little assembly & you will be off:

    Gelande II Truck Kit w/Defender D90 Body Set

    You will have to make your own power bulge if you want to make it a Puma version!
