Lego Scrambler, fair model!

Monday, December 29, 2014 8:15 PM

Yes, Lego has a trailer mounted Scrambler that folds up to fit on the truck, with other various fairground stuff. It's going to be hard to pass this one up!

Are there any Scrambler rides like that that ride that high from the ground in real life?

Wow, the lighting package on that is insane.

The older Wisdom Sizzlers are close to that, but not quite that high off the ground.

This Lego Scrambler comes attached to the truck, so the kids (we) can transform it back and forth all day long if we want. Real life Scramblers and Twists are taken off the truck so the riders have easier access than those little Lego folks. In fact, an old carnival term for this type of ride is grass cutter. This toy is cute as hell, though.

I like that Twist that raises up. I always thought Eli Bridge missed the boat by not developing a Scrambler on a platform with a boom that would raise the ride up on an angle. Not too steep, maybe slightly more than a Calypso or something like that.

I think this is part of a series of models that were designed by fans (we bought a Ghostbuster mobile from the sam series for our son's birthday). I have a feeling this was designed by this guy: http://l-rides.com/

Well, he's certainly better at Lego ride design than he is websites. That is god awful.

I had no idea so many grown men played with Lego.

You have to be a grown man, with disposable income, to even afford the better sets.

Buying and playing are two different things.

I can't even begin to imagine how much money Lego got from us over the years. Then Ethan hit 12 and now 13 and I don't they've been touched in a year.

I've also always wondered how many pieces we have. Seriously has to be tens of thousands. We have large storage bins full of them.

F'n Lego.

It says: buy it on Amazon and save 4 cents. WOW a real deal! ;)

Gonch - you're missing a huge money making opportunity here.

You can sell those 10's of thousands to the grown men that still play with them at a hefty profit.

I'll go ahead and reserve a table at the next ACE swap meet, but I expect a 20% finder's fee. :)

Real life Scramblers ARE trailer mounted http://www.elibridge.com/scramblers.htm

But not up on the wheels, which this Lego model seems to be.

What's up with the gorilla hands on that guy?

Anyway, this model is sweeeeet. I like the characters, especially the guy that's about to hurl, and the carny's kinda hot. So, in spite of the fact it's miles off the ground, I just may have to...

I watched a few of the other design videos, and they're all (including this one) so clever in their detail and compactness. I've never in my life owned even a brick of Lego, but I'm a big fan of miniatures in general, so I love to see what they can do with them. I intend to go to Legoland one day, not for the rides so much, but to totally geek out on the models. I just know I'm not gonna want to leave.
