The BrickMaster Jungle Cruiser set #20004
got an overhaulin' by me for a LUGNuts challenge on Flickr, so I thought I'd share it here.
Adventurers need a bigger Jeep and room for equipment!  So I created the Jungle Master:

LED HeadLights, tow bar, brush bumper, flood row of fog lights, thicker windshield with wipers, horns, side rearview mirrors, and grip footstep:

Professor Jones came straight from teaching at the University and only had time to grab his satchel, whip & hat!


More equipment racks, spring-supported seat, adjustable steering wheel, more cargo room, and a fold-down tailgate:

More pictures in the Jungle Master set.

Thanks for looking over my overhauled creation  :classic:

Hello!

Nice enhanced and boosted-up version of the jeep. :classic: The driver looks like one of those new "Friends" figures, right? Does normal minifigure headgear work for them?

Cheers,

Yes, the driver is "Friends" Peter, a MiniDoll; and, yes, all MiniFig hair & hats are compatible with any Friends MiniDolls -- as well as all tools!  Having them sit and/or be in any LEGO creation is easy  :sweet:
Thanks for the compliment!

I love the original Jungle Cruiser, and this is an improvement, 'LegoMyMamma'! :sweet:
The pieces from the Peter figure work really well as an Indy figure. :thumbup:

Wow, very nice, well done!

But I have 2 points that could be changed; a wider front glass and bigger tires.

Agree with you, as I added side trans to extend the windshield (unfortunately, that is the only windshield size I have and using windows tilted didn't work) and although I upsized tires from original, I totally agree mine could use way bigger tires -- especially with extended splash-guards/fenders.  I hope to get some of the new Monster Fighters vehicles -- I think there are some bigger tires in that theme.
Thanks
:classic:

Indy MOCs always have the colors I like too  :wink:  Thanks!

The Indy in the Jungle Master is Peter from Friends theme -- Olivia's House set.

Nifty! But why not post it in the Licensed forum, with the other Indy MOCs?

Very nice.  Indiana Jones was a great theme that didn't last long enough IMO.

Gosh, only until I read what you wrote did I realize I mentally join Johnny Thunder and Indiana Jones as one character!  LOL
I always think "Adventurers" when I see this Jeep.  Suppose subliminally I wish it had come out during Adventurers' reign.  Both are quite "action" based  :wink:

Thanks for the reminder  :sweet:

Don't know if Pep wants to 'move' this whole post to Licensed or not.

Thanks -- that's probably the rough part about being linked to movie scenes.

I miss the old Adventurers games on LEGO.com  :wink:
