This MOC came about as part of a collaboration with LEGO, as well as some of those from my local LUG. For video of them in action, you can check out LEGOs social media accounts ( https://www.facebook.com/LEGOTechnic/videos/613046392414780/ ) But lets talk about the Spooky Racer here...
About this creation
There's no denying RC cars are fun. However, it feels like a lot of Technic builders neglect the aesthetic appeal of their racers. And that's really what I wanted to focus on with this build. Take a basic, zippy, RC car frame, and inject it with real character and fun.
So that's really where the seed of the idea came from. Take a Technic Car. Make it a pretty Hotrod. And give it a wacky theme. (I've always loved that camp halloween vibe as embodied by the Munsters and Addams Family; and the Monster Fighters theme is one I'd love to see return) Then crash it into others in an attempt to score points in football.
That's what AFOL life looks like.
And here's a bonus work-in-progress shot
and Heres that Link to watch them in action over on LEGOs channel.
