Hello all, I've been meaning to post this for a while as part of the next Bat Mocs'N'Mods Treat but realised this armoured truck was too big and detailed to not get its own thread.

By now you have realised there is no free scone and that my true plan was to lure you here!  :devil:
Posted Image

This vehicle is heavily based off the BTAS animated Freeze truck which he used to steal various parts for his giant freeze ray (the episode was called Heart of Ice and is still one of the finest Batman tales ever):
Posted Image

One difference is the lack of side door which was too hard to incorporate, instead I put a rear door:
Posted Image

It may look small in there but trust me, this thing is way bigger than normal TLC van type trucks, and can fit five people in it:
Posted Image

The printed piece I've now found another of so it is on both sides now, it is meant to represent some of the cooling technology integrated within:
Posted Image

Like in the animated series the side panel opens to allow for gunfire or freeze ray mayhem:
Posted Image

The top also opens up like in the episode to allow for Mr Freeze to fire his ice beams:
Posted Image

Here he is firing the freeze ray with a henchman below taking sideshots:
Posted Image

Side shot of the scenario:
Posted Image

Open sesame!
Posted Image

Final shot of the gang:
Posted Image

Thanks for looking and compliments are not just appreciated, they are mandatory!  :tongue:

Oh, and here's my favourite scene from Heart of Ice.

Beautiful MOC Batbrick! O love this truck, excellent use of SNOT on the sides and front. I am glad Mr. Freeze is finally getting some larger MOC's, he is my favorite Batman Villain.

Wow, a fantastic job you did there Batbrick  :sweet:

I think it looks really a lot like Mr. Freeze's van in that episode.
It's large, nice color too, and I like the little details like the printed plates for the cooling-technology.
And of course the hatches for Mr. Freeze's beam *imagines the scene with the frozen door, and the van chrashing through it*.
Excellent piece of work !  :thumbup:

Greetings,

NOOOOOOOO IT T'WAS A TRAP! :cry_sad:  :angry:  :sing:

Errm anyway...I like the Henchmen for some reason...They just look cool Maybe 'cos I like blue and stuff... :look: Also weren't the TLC Mr.Freeze henchmen Medium Blue? I dont care dark blue looks good if not better. :sweet:
Nice truck to, Very SNOTTY :wub:

I like everything about the truck even though im not a HUGE BAT-FAN like yourself. :blush:

Oh and Mr.Freeze is my favourite Batman villain. :classic:

That has to be one of the best MOC trucks I've seen in all my lurking days. The only thing I would add is a bit more.. well, I was going to say blue, but now that I look at it, that gray fits Freeze just as well.  :thumbup:

Cool! :thumbup:  (No pun intended)

Finally a nice Mr. Freeze MOC! As you say, it seems very influenced by BTAS, even though that one had a rounder hood, I believe. It also reminds me of the part in Sub Zero where Freeze kidnaps Barbara!

But I still think that the commander pistols from the Clone Wars sets are the perfect Freeze Gun.

Here is a neat compilation of the best scenes from Heart of Ice: Enjoy!

Mr. Freeze ON!

Very Nice. :thumbup:
Love all the hatches and the heavy look.

By coincidence I was logging on to start uploading my freeze stuff and was womdering whether I should start a new topic.
I guess I'll follow your example.

Thanks SCG! I'm glad too Mr Freeze is getting mocs recently, I agree he is a fantastic villain and sadly underrated.

Thanks as always Oky friend, glad to see another BTAS fan. Yes, that one did have a rounder hood and also a dome not hatch on top, but still I'm happy with it. Oh, and I love that Subzero part! I had forgotten the truck was there as well!
Great idea with the clone guns, I don't yet have any but next year I'll get a couple of those Clone battlepacks for the pieces and make it his gun. Thanks for the idea.

Oh, and I love that compilation, thanks for posting.

Oh sorry, I meant normal blue vs medium blue....not dark :blush:  :grin:  :wacko:

Wonderful, absolutely beautiful. But enough about me, onto the MOC.  :laugh:

I love the front shot here, with the armoured, wide look. It makes it look tough and strong, as does the armoured roof. I like how the hatch on the roof is mostly hidden amongst the rest of the detailing. There looks to be a decent amount of space inside, which is aways important in a trasport. I think the sides between the wheels perhaps need bringing out to the same level as the side of the truck, but that's a minor niggle. This is still a great MOC though, and I now realise I need to go back and watch Heart of Ice to take a look at the reference material.
Yep, I'm back! Be afraid...

Thanks mate, glad you like the slightly hidden roof hatch. I do agree the sides at the wheels would look better out more but they can't be, otherwise they would be touching the wheels unfortunately. Now hurry up and go watch Heart of Ice again!

Ah, but there's the rub! The pistols in the 2009 clone BP are black! :sceptic:  The Freeze gun is grey, so I'd suggest you get one of the sets from this year, like the Homing Spider Droid set. :wink:

Great! love all the details you have in it. And it looks very nice for an 8-wide. :thumbup:  And all of the doors make it an ideal battletruck. Great work.
