Nürnberg 2014: Vaterra Ford Raptor Pre Runner

Vaterra's history of (mostly) scale vehicles continues with the announcement of the Vaterra Ford Raptor Pre Runner Truck. It looks to be based on the Halix monster truck chassis-wise, but offers a much more scale appearance. Like the Halix, the Raptor comes with Spektrum's AVC technology for better handling. Like everything else nowadays, the Raptor is fully waterproof.

My only concern for this truck is the price point. The Ford Raptor is an immensely popular truck, but can Vaterra's offering overcome the $450 price point... without a battery or charger included? I'm not so sure. But either way, we'll find out when it arrives in stores in April. If you want to be one of the first to get your hands one one, pre-order now!
