From days of long ago, from the uncharted regions of the nerdy-verse, comes a legend, the legend of Nerdtron: Defender of the 80's! A mighty robot loved by good, feared by evil! This totally tubular titan is comprised of some of the most iconic pop culture vehicles of the 80's, such as the Ecto-1, Delorean time machine, A-Team Van, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Party Wagon, and Nerdly forms the head. Sporting a glorious mullet, shoulder pads, and a walkman, our heroic 80's icons are ready to take on the Shredder, Biff, ghosts, or any other evil foe that threatens our nostalgia!

This is my entry for the Nerdvember contest on Bricknerd. It was inspired by an illustration that I came across in an image search. If this isn't the nerdiest, most 80's thing you've ever seen, I don't know what is!

Here he is, ready to spring into action!

When he's not fighting crime, Nerdtron likes to relax and listen to some rad 80's tunes on his walkman. Even giant robots need a break sometimes.

Here are Nerdly and the vehicles when they haven't formed Nerdtron. Some assembly required.

I had a lot of fun designing 6-wide versions of these iconic vehicles, so let's take a closer look at them. First up we have the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future.

When there's something strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? The 6-wide Ghostbusters Ecto-1 of course! This one was the most detailed and most challenging one to build at this scale.

The two Technic holes in the back are where the legs slot into.

I love it when a MOC comes together. Such as this A-Team van.

I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures as I had to take them last minute. I hope you like it nonetheless.

You did a tremendous job with the six-wide vehicles. It’s also incredible to think Lego has, in some way or another, adopted every one of these licenses! Great job Oky, I love this!

Indeed. I can't wait for the actual Voltron set. I was considering having KITT from Knight Rider as one of the vehicles which oddly enough is also a license that they have thanks to Lego Dimensions (R.I.P.).
