Virtual Toy Chest's
Evel Knievel Archive
Ideal began producing Evel Knievel figures in 1972. It marked a change of direction for the toy industry, moving from fantasy figures to real life heroes. A year later Ideal released the classic Stunt Cycle with launcher. It was an instant hit and numerous other vehicles were produced.
Evel stood about 6" tall, making him a head shorter than Mego figures.
Other Stunt Vehicles
In the late 90s Playing Mantis reissued some of the classic sets like the Stunt Cycle. They also made some deicast cars under the Johnny Lightning brand.
Various online stores now sell the Dare Devil Stunt Set with Ring of 'Fire', and Signature Style with Stunt Cycle, Dragster, and Funny car.
