Hey, got one for Christmas, how do you open the canopy?
Sounds hard to do, judging by th comments. I didn't want to
break mine but it doesn't open at all! Is it "up and back" or just
"back"? I cut the plastic band but that didn't make any difference.

I bought the keaton 1:18 and pulled it out to examine it and then back into it's box, then later walked by a display and saw the engine came out!
So does anything else move or work on this tumbler hot wheels 1:18?

Yes, it's up and back... takes an alarming amount of force to get it unsnapped to move... but it'll go.

The 1:18 '89 has machine guns that flip over on the top surface, left and right, the pull-out engine, movable canopy, the steering works, and is linked to the steering wheel, too, and ... I think that covers it, aside from the wheels rotating.

The Tumbler... just the (only-slightly) opening canopy, and rotating wheels - ignore any old info floating around that claims that there is working steering on this thing; probably would have doubled the cost of the thing to accomplish that.

And it does not open all the way. Barely enough to see inside. I think someone at Mattel just said "Oh f*ck it!" and just gave up and left it the way it is...

... which allowed them to skip painting/decaling the details that are molded into that unseen interior.
