Cheerleader Battle Mecha-Jeep 04

Newer Older

I'm back from BrickCon, and ready to unveil the only new creation I've built since July. I had the funky idea to build this one evening, and actually had the time to do so. I figured that the post-apocalypse building scene could use a little more levity, and what's better than cheerleaders to bring some cheer? Of course, I had to try to build a stereotypical cheerleader vehicle, which pretty much had to be an open top jeep or a VW cabrio. Then I added the legs, to make it more interesting, as well as ridiculous.

At the behest of a friend, I brought the creation to BrickCon, and took photos of it on as many cool creations as I could manage. I didn't anticipate the big response it got, so don't be surprised to see some more girls of the apocalypse from me (nurses anyone?).

    "2,4,6,8; who to we de-cap-a-tate?!"

    Awesome idea and excellent execution!

    I tried dishes and other stuff on the hips, and none worked well. It usually looked goofily like wheels over the legs. If I'd spent more time on this, I might have built in non functioning suspension.

    Noted about the grilles, and easily changed.

    Great and unique idea for sure, these legs are fantastic, the Jeep is hot too, but I think the headlights are a bit too big for the scale. I know this isn't a replica of a real life car; but 2x2 seem to be too big here. Any way I like everything else, well done.

    I have made my own version of this (I had to have my own). Page-https://www.flickr.com/photos/53558641@N06/5066318178/

    Firas - I totally agree that the headlights are a little big for the scale, but I wanted to go a bit over the top and comical on this MOC. I lined up the front with the hood, so I could use cheese slopes for headlights, and make it more like a Land Rover, but that look didn't work for me. 1x1 round plates were just too small for the headlights for the look I wanted.

    Jenny - Thanks! I definitely want to build a bunch of other females of the apocalypse MOCs, and gymnasts are an option I hadn't thought of. There's an old-school bathing suit piece I might try too.

    HAHAH! That is dang clever!!

    I am utterly impressed by the leg detail! That is some skill!

    Missed this!

    "Cheers Flickr!"

    Is this based off that walking car prototype they did in the 70's?

    Incredible piece usage!

    I totally missed the piece you used for the feet. Great concept as well, take something insane and just run with it.
