Model Defender's

Not Sure if you guys have seen or heard of these, but i just picked um up from target.com they do 2 90's one is a half cab pickup and the other a Green SW with a rack, made by a company called Bruder and they are made in Germany, so the build quality is higher than what came out of solihull. The doors, hood and sunroof open, the jump seats can be removed, the roof, the rack, doors and roll bars can be too, but i dont think its really meant to be taken that far apart.

Don't mind the photos, they were just my test subjects for messing around with my flashes and white board.

My wife got me one while my truck was in the shop to get me by. She got it on Amazon though. It's got the Puma hood.

My wife just picked up the Bruder station wagon model for my son. Very well done. Looks like the bumper has a winch mount even!

The winch and other cool accessories are available cheaper direct from the Bruder spare parts service. I bought my son both the green and white D90. He wanted a winch and I found them on this website. I also bought him some spare parts to toss in the roof rack and the back.

Winch: http://www.bruderservice.com/42545.htm
Spare parts for D90: http://www.bruderservice.com/landrover.html

One of the coolest things I found to go with the trucks are some off-road recovery accessories from an Unimog that Bruder used to sell. The expedition Unimog is no longer available, but they still carry spare parts, such as sand ladders, pioneer tools, and jerry cans. My son has a blast getting his D90s in the sandbox and "recovering" them when they get "stuck."

Recovery tools: http://www.bruderservice.com/02474.html

Bruder makes some awesome realistic toys, and they are really well made. I wish they did more Land Rover stuff, or overland vehicles in general.

What about radio controlled versions? I'm looking for Xmas gifts and thought there was a defender version somewhere - cannot find it. Barring that, any recommendations for RC (no gas) trucks or tanks for 9-14 yr olds? Durability, speed and function are key.

my boys have some Bruder toys. They are expensive, but great quality. they do have two lines (one for toddlers w/o the detail for less money), but these look like the real deal.
THeir construction equipment is very accurately modeled down to minute details.

I remember my days as a kid with rusty Tonka trucks that required a tetanus shot to handle. Oh and 'ole school Buddy L. Kids get all the coolest toys in this generation!

Someone was selling one here not too long ago. Not sure if it sold yet. I'll start looking...


... Looks like it was licked within an hour of posting. But at least you can see an example

You need to buy the winch, or multiple winches (one can fit on the front and back of their 90 model). Part number is 42545.

We own three or four of the 90's and the Bruder flatbed tow truck. No correlation.
