Model History[]

A retool was issued in 2015 for easier assembly. A chunk of metal comprising the front bumper and fenders became part of the plastic interior. The base was revised with an updated copyright year of 2015 as MB990.

It resumed production until 2017 when the license to Toyota fell through. It is unknown if this casting will ever be used again even though Mattel has renewed the license.

Description[]

  • The sun has risen over the ancient Mayan ruin, revealing a secret entrance to the infamous Bat Cavern. This treacherous cavern cannot be tackled on foot—luckily, your Toyota Land Cruiser with four-wheel drive can handle this rugged terrain. Finally the secret of the Bat Cavern will be revealed.
    —From the 2011 Jungle Explorers card
