No Idea Iain. But I'm very pleased to say that my best mate is bringing his mint/boxed one back from NI and is GIVING it to me. I've had such a run of bad luck away from VAM the last few months and these little guys and the friendships I've made through them have really kept me afloat. :-)

Palitoy just copied US Hasbro's Gi Joe trapper Dads as drunkenmonkey said and just made it a little different.
google GI JOE Big Trapper and have a look. I can't paste pics anymore on this forum.

A couple of differences (apart from the colour) The joe version has the windows cut out on the side and a different moulding in front of the gun, much chunkier.  Cheers for posting the pic, Cam

To me, it looks more like a space vehicle than a MTV.  I'm surprised Palitoy didn't re hash it for the space rangers.

hi guys   yes i just looked it up  ad  thanks for showing it on here .. mmmmmmmmmmmmm...very odd ..  i just spotted that on the very front of the MTV/trapper .. thers a small hole  could it be for another set of wheels  of did some one do an OPPS at the factory ...... the gun mount on the top looks better than the MTV one  and the side windows look fab ... mmmm........
 and i would have said  its more of a space thing  then  earth   ...... and the cage on the back mm i like that

I never had a Big Trapper but I thought it looked cool. Well except for the cage to put the stupid Intruder in. I always thought the design was meant to compliment the Adventure Team Multi Support Vehicle. Now that was cool! The MSV is one of my all time favorite toys. Sorry I can't post any pics.
