LEGO Wacky Racers

Wacky Racers was a television show created by Hanna Barbera that bebuted in the 60’s. It had around 23 regular characters spread among 11 different (and wacky) cars. The characters were both human and animal characters.

Only 17 episodes were produced, very few for a series that filled the imagination of several generations. It’s almost certain that people from all ages have seen an episode of Wacky Racers at least once. Who does not remember Muttley with his funny laugh or Penelope Pitstop with her pink car?

An artist called Martin Redfern decided to bring this awesome TV series into the LEGO world creating a LEGO version of each car and character.

All the Cars

The only downside in these MOCs are the figures. I would prefer the usage of minifigures instead of figures made with LEGO parts. But overall i think the final result is very very acceptable.

The creator of these MOCs also submitted one of Wacky Racers cars, the 00, into LEGO Ideas. If you like the project and think this should be considered for an IDEAS set, show your support at the LEGO IDEAS page.
