Joe the Plumber's Badass Step Van (70811 MOD)

Not really a MOD since the vehicle of the 70811 Lego Movie 1 set is completely changed, however, I used those great stickers (stickers from all Lego Movie vehicle sets being of much higher quality than the usual City stickers in my opinion) and kept of course the great colour combo. Plus there are some nice figs and some plumbing gear.

 

I can't tell an exact scale here - there had to be a decision between 7w and 8w regarding step vans, maybe it's slightly too wide for a 1/40 scale vehicle, however the height looks okay - seems to be rather difficult to get the exact measurements of a more or less matching prototype.

 

Main points here were the sbs seating of the figs (which isn't a problem on an 8w vehicle, of course) plus the set down, "pimped" look which required an upside down solution on the wheel wells - the wheels not spinning very well to be honest, but at least sitting nicely where they belong. Both requirements prevented a more elaborate door solution which otherwise would be something to be featured on a step van.

 

100% Lego. Thanks for looking!
