This Fan-Made Lego Jeep Wrangler Is Fit For Mass Production


This has to go mainstream.

It seems that every time we take the time out to have a look at the latest fan submissions to the Lego Ideas site, we find something cooler than the last time. The Mk1 Golf we recently saw was great, as was the iconic E-Type Jaguar. However, this latest effort puts them to shame, in fact it quite possibly looks better and more in proportion than some of the special offerings from Lego itself. The Golf and Jaguar will be popular in Europe, but this submission of a Jeep Wrangler will have US patriots wanting.

The Mk1 we reported on has reached it's goal of 10,000 supporters which means the big shots at Lego will now give it some serious consideration to go into production. As of today the Jeep Wrangler submitted by a fan registered as ck80 (Chiho Kim when offline), has a total of 1760 supporters, but with 603 days to go to reach the 10,000 mark it looks bang on track to make it long before the deadline. The man is clearly a fan of the Wrangler and he managed to perfectly capture the iconic off-roader's dimensions while sticking to the same overall size as the official builds from Lego. We assume this will be a huge bonus for when it moves on to the next stage of the Lego Ideas process - which we're sure it will.

The build won't be for youngsters as it's quite complicated, as ck80 comments: "The most difficult part of the construction was to join the hood and the two mudguards. I was stuck on this part for a couple of weeks, struggling to combine a slightly tilted hood module with 1x3x2 arch bricks and mudguard modules with angled technic beams. Though I have successfully managed to integrate them seamlessly as shown in the pictures after a series of attempts, better ways of joining these parts together must be sought out for more perfection." We love the way the Jeep has been kitted out too; Star Wars helmets on the dash, a GPS screen, a cargo net, traffic cones and even a DSLR camera because he likes to take pics.
