8070 small alternate model, at LEGO Club

I've noticed via EuroBricks today, there is available from LEGO Club Building Steps page, one set of instructions to build a small alternate for the 8070 Supercar, as a Chopper.

Download them here. I've opted to post the direct link, as the path to get there seems a bit weird at the moment...

That looks more like a scooter to me. I assume this is some fan made model?

Don't think it is fan made model.

No, it is a 4 yo kid made model.

How hell is it possible such a poor thing with the invetory of 8070 ?

I agree, this has to be the worst alternate Model that you could possibly make from the 8070. This must be a late April Fool's joke. :(

Am I the only one believing this is actually Kaneda's bike?

@Anio, Konrad

This is not the first time the LEGO Club releases instructions for small Technic models, based on official models.
Certainly you remember This.

I'd say, everything as a purpose and this definitely does not intend to be a B-model.
For some reason I've only written "alternate" without a single mention to a B-model.
Given the target group addressed by LEGO Club, I'd say this model is perfectly Ok.
For instance someone buying the 8070, could build this small model, with his younger brother or child.

this is just a sugestion (no relation to post)but, could the theme of the next poll be "should lego make a part specificly made for torsion bar suspension?

@ Conchas:

So the question should be:
Is it Scala or Galidor size? ;-)

( Hence the target group... )

Conchas said...


Notice that such model is also not advertised, promoted or even linked to the pages in any way.
Thus not seriously taken as an 8070 alternative model. Rather it is something for the LEGO Club fans.

Menno Gorter said...

I'd say it's a perfect way to promote Technic to the youngsters!
( As long they leave my own Lego to me? :-) )
Maybe it's a nice challenge; what can you build with the parts left?
