Beatnik Bandit II
Another Creation by Ed "Big Daddy" Roth

  • Original year: 1996
  • Company: Revell
  • Scale: 1/25
  • Designer: Ed Roth

Like a bear from hibernation, Ed "Big Daddy" Roth has emerged from his garage and presents to the world his latest creation - the "Beatnik Bandit II". It follows in the tradition of the great Roth Show Rods, like the Mysterion, the Road Agent, and the original Beatnik Bandit. The new high-tech bandit is as wild as the rest of 'em, featuring an onboard trip computer and six, count 'em, six headlights. Standing alongside you'll have Big Daddy himself, with his timeless sidekick, Rat Fink.

Dave's comments:

Compare this to the original Beatnik Bandit which Roth brought out in 1963. "Big Daddy" looks a lot different 33 years later...he's polished his act for the 90s!
