In "Big" they call it "Truckapiller" I've got the first part of it but I've never been able to find the real name of the thing. Anyone know? I've googled for months.

I saw a mention of a Truck-a-Killer in the script. It looked like they mentioned Transformers in that movie. They were talking about bug Transformers. Seemed like they predicted Beast Wars, sort of.

It's odd that this movie ended up unofficially named this thing. Maybe it really is called truckapiller but swing as how they named a lot of official toys with different names it would have been a licensing issue I assume.

I'll ask on Yahoo! Answers sometime. Maybe someone there knows.

What you've got there is a Giant Command 32 (AKA Land Giant 32). It was sold in the States as Giant Command 32 by Galoob as part of their Power Wheels line, and was imported to Japan under Bandai's Machine Robo banner.

I'm trying to figure it out too. I have it and it's pretty much the only toy I have from when I was a kid. I just put batteries in it and it still runs like a champ. I found one thing on google... Land Giant 32.

Oddly, I was just subtitleing an episode of Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos, and this thing made a random cameo at 3:12 into the video.

It's like someone said "Hey, Bandai is paying for this TV show. Have some of our toys trucks make random appearances!"
