Like Medabots, another cartoon from my childhood has now been turned into an amazing LEGO model, thanks to British builder redfern1950s. This time it’s the “Army Surplus Special” tank / old timey car / steamroller from the classic Saturday morning cartoon Wacky Races. The builder has even created a custom scale of brick-built figures to pilot this machine. They don’t look much bigger than regular minifigures, so I’m sure some custom figs would fit perfectly in the cockpits too.
This build not only makes me want to watch Wacky Racers (and, by extension, Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines) again but it makes me wish LEGO would adopt this show. A giant one-off set with all the racers would be ideal, or a short theme with each racer as their own set would be even better.
Which Wacky Racer would make the best set in your opinion?
