If you’re looking for the perfect nostalgic gift from the 80s and 90s, a vintage Tyco Mini Hopper is my pick! They’re great collectors items and are still fairly affordable.

The Taiyo DeLorean Part II is a miniature radio control car released by Taiyo in 2004. It was sold exclusively in Universal Studios Japan as part of Back to the Future: The Ride, making it unusually rare.


The DeLorean Part I and DeLorean Part III cars released in 2001, and it was not until 2004 that this Part II ‘The Ride’ car was released, and appears exclusive to Universal Studios Japan. This allows collectors to obtain all 3 cars from the movie.

Some RadiCan cars have unique features. The Part II car appears to have permanently raised wheels, like the DeLorean in the film when it enters hover mode. We won’t spoil how it does this and still drives at the same time, but it’s quite a simple solution.

While all RadiCan cars are highly collectable and in demand, the three RC DeLorean cars stand out as some of the most valuable, together with the RadiCan Knight Rider car, and the Coca Cola Chevy cars.

To maintain it’s value we’d recommend always buying items with their shrink wrap still intact, much more possible with RadiCans than any regular Taiyo / Tyco cars.


RadiCan cars are incredibly popular with collectors, perhaps even more than traditional Taiyo / Tyco RC cars, simply because their small size and large selection makes them easier to collect.

Their performance however as radio control cars is average. With just 2xAA batteries (3V) their top speed is around 6km/h, though they are full function (forward, back, left, right) and nicely detailed.

With around 50 Radican models available, all becoming increasingly rare and difficult to find, it’s a race between collectors around the world to complete their collection before it’s too late.
