I have never had one and they rarely pop up on ebay but I was wondering what do these cost. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5988776458&category=2467&rd=1

The price is within range for this item, but it is in the high end of the range. I bought one last year for about 135-145, not sure, but it was well worth it for a fairly unique vehicle. I'm not sure I could shell out that much cash for one though. Actually, I'm fairly certain I couldn't, it seems to me there were several for sale around the time I bought and I passed on the ones in that price range. Anywhere from 130-175 is probably about right, though.

It's "reasonable but high end" value is correct IMO, that is one rare vehicle.
And when I say "rare", I mean compared to every other Joe vehicle released in the world. . .not how difficult it is to obtain.

Yep, the Crimson Moccasin is truly a holy grail item, IMO. I've seen only one other like it on ebay, and never in that kind of condition. The surface torpedo is always missing, even from the more common US versions of the same vehicle.

But for me personally, it'd be a tough choice between buying that, or the Python Swampfire. Because I like Python Patrol so much. :o

I have 2 red water Moccasin, been after a python patrol swampfire for ages but I thought that way expensive, I won a mint loose with its box for about $120 but apparently he lost it, but I know some one made him a better offer and he took it.

That red Moccasin is the Hydroélice De Emboscada. I have one too, but the fins are missing. Not too big of a deal, I think that the black US parts are the same shade, so they'll be easy to replace if I ever get around to it. Here's a couple scans from the Brazillian catalog that shows them both:

The sheet is just a little bigger than my scanner bed, so there is about ¼" cropped from both the top & bottom of the pages.
