The Giant was a 32 wheeled monster truck. It was three trucks that could snap together or be free wheeled seperatley. It needed 8 C cell batteries to work. The pieces were named Leader One, The Claw, and Turbo. Leader One and Turbo took the batteries.

I played with that truck for hours on end. I have not seen any other truck that could climb a staircase, go over a person lying down, and just about everything else you put it in front of. I hope my information is valuable to your site. Will be back with more info soon.

I had one of these and it was a battery hog! I think my parents got tired of buying batteries all the time, much to my dismay! I bet my Mom still has it in a box in her basement.
