Sahara Survivor
Debut Series Desert Adventure
Produced 2009-Present
Number MB782/MB942


  • An ancient burial site has been discovered in the depths of the desert. Only the Sahara Survivor and its powerful engine, solid body and awesome gripping tires can get you though this harsh desert to the secret site. Now you're ready to begin the excavation and reveal some ancient secrets!
  • First versions with metal body, where the spare wheel on the hood isn't visibly connected to the roll bar simulates working suspension. This means the axle is mounted on a pivot, allowing slight wheel oscillation up and downwards.


The Sahara Survivor has come out in the following versions:
