I hear the Coyote is after this one

Some old timers gripe about the wide range of colors and shapes that LEGO has introduced over the years. I respectfully ask those curmudgeons to take a gander at this exquisite Road Runner by nobu_tary, and re-evaluate their stance. Making great use of quarter circle-dome brick, arches, curved slopes, and lots of glorious purple and teal brick, this instantly recognizable transition from cartoon to LEGO would have been impossible back in the day. And the future might be even brighter, if we ever get those Mixel ball-joint connectors in anything other than shades of grey. But for now, I merely say unto you: Meep Meep and go in peace.

They don’t make TV cartoons like they used to, and this build by Chris Goddard brings back tons of memories. The Technic ball joints that make up Wile E. Coyote’s eyes popping out of his sockets describe his everlasting hunger and passion to never give up hope and to always keep trying
