^^ The description is for a Star Wars set that doesn’t actually exist.

It's a cute little set. But waaaaay too many stickers.

Arena Assault? That description on that listing is totally bizarre.

Edit: Sent a message to the seller asking to explain, will see if they get back to me. I'll update.

Pretty decent little Baja racer there. Along with the Shell line, LEGO tooled a new Tiny Turbos scale pullback motor that I've been itching to see in a regular production set (not that the Shell promos are all that expensive anyway now). Maybe Speed Champions needs a spin-off/polybag line that is Tiny Turbos size and uses these new motors.

^^How I instantly knew this, I’ll never know, (a Google search confirmed my hunch) but the description on that eBay listing is for a toy from the Star Wars Command product line. Star Wars Command was a series of plastic “little green army men”-type figures of Star Wars characters and vehicles. I’m guessing the seller copy and pasted to the wrong listing.

Sometimes people put a ridiculous price on a listing because they have sold out or they have been travelling. For whatever reason they want the listing to stay online. The price goes down when they get more stock or they have returned from travelling and can sell more of the item. The Star Wars info looks pasted from another toy - not Lego. That might mean the seller wants to edit the listing to sell something else in the near future. Or all that is wrong and the seller is deranged.

Also, I loved these sets when they were sold, even though I had only a few of them

I used to have two of these cars. They've got a pretty awesome design.

First RSOTD I have. I loved Hotwheels as a kid, so I obviously loved Tiny Turbos as well. This subtheme probably deserves more credit than any other for getting me into Lego.
