Any other 80s kids around here who grew up with this awesome toy?

I could have had custom decals made for this for added accuracy, but instead I used vintage glow in the dark stickers I got from ebay unopened from 1990. They were too cool not to use, and I think they fit nicely and help drive the context home a bit better than "foot stinks" for the layman.

It also has a wind up motor applied to the back wheels for added play value.

Very cool. I like the roof of the van.

I also like the cute little turtles in the vig you have at the bottom.

A bit boxy, but it does a good job recreating the cartooniness. Nice job on the turtles too :thumbup:

Wow, this MOC is quite impressive, particularly the ingenious 'reverse'-studded build and the clever use of the minifig legs for the roof. The colors and details are pretty much spot-on, and the playable functions are nice additional features in this build. Great overall job Maegnus! :thumbup:

Love the final scene at the bottom, the turtles are adorable, and the masked man (sorry, I know the character and not the name) is well done.  The actual vehicle is also well executed, though detailing the insides would probably be good.  The stickers are another great idea, and shows both commitment, innovation, and really just compliments the whole build very nicely.
