Seeing the pictures for the Monster Fighters 2012 sets inspired me to create the original Monster Fighters and their vehicle.
As a kid I was a huge fan of the Scooby Doo franchise. There was just one thing I never got... I always wondered why the bad guys never teamed up. I mean they are just a bunch of meddling kids and their stupid mut...
As usual I started the build by making the figures. They aren't completely accurate, but I like them a lot! The alien conquest female reporter head really came in handy for Velma.
Building the Mystery Machine was hard to do. I started with the lettering on the side of the van. Which took me quite some time to get it right. I had to use the initials as I couldn't get the complete name one the van. After that the base, back and the cabin of the van weren't that hard to do. I know the roof isn't supposed to be white, but I didn't have the parts in medium blue and using regular bricks made the van look really boxy. I'm quite proud of how it turned out. I'm not a vehicle builder so I think I did a good job considering the limited parts I have in lime, medium blue and orange. The model is a model and doesn't have any play features, no doors to open and stuff like that. The only thing that actually works are the wheels.
The buildings in the background are two WIPs. I modified the Medieval Market Village buildings to go better with the Harry Potter Diagon Alley set.
