Among the latest releases of the family Technic from LEGO we found the Land Rover Defender 90, al Jeep Wrangler (in its Rubicon variant), to Dodge Charger de ‘Fast & Furious’ o al Lamborghini Sián. But soon a new cash could be added: the huge Electric hummer.
At the moment, it is a project featured in LEGO Ideas, the initiative of the famous Danish construction toy brand that opens the door for user-developed sets to become a reality.
For LEGO to evaluate it as a marketable model you need get 10,000 votes in two years. And it is not going badly, because it takes 970 at the time this article is being written: this figure has been harvested in about two months, when there is a whole year to spare to reach 1,000.
With 2,200 pieces and remote control
Is My Own Creation (MOC) that can become part of the LEGO Technic catalog is signed by the user Technic-Al (Alain B). And it is a very successful reproduction of the superlative zero-emission mastodon. Hummer EV, what resurrects as electric and will begin production in the fall in its Edition 1 variant.
The expectation generated by this immense electric up to 1,000 CV is beyond any doubt, since the reserves of this Edition 1 were exhausted in just minutes. So its creator has chosen to turn it into a LEGO Technic set, which is completely functional and remote control.
This LEGO brick-based electric Hummer translates the aesthetics of GMC’s new behemoth in its pick-up variant. Thus, we find a frontal in which the optical line characteristic present in this model, in addition to the powerful fenders, the rear box or the gigantic off-road tires.
There is also no lack of details in the cabin, with the seats imitating the design of the original or several flat pieces that seek to materialize the screens that dominate the interior of this electric SUV (instrumentation and multimedia display).
In total the model consists of 2,200 pieces and it has already undergone modifications, for example the removable ceiling panels, for which he has resorted to transparent pieces as if they were made of glass. “I have not found a better solution to design them”, details its creator.
Beyond the design, this LEGO Technic electric Hummer proposal is equipped with four electric motors, one per wheel, therefore being all-wheel drive. Furthermore the four wheels are directional, as also happens in the real model and that allow you to boast of the advanced ‘crab mode’ function that we have already seen on video.
In the same way, the adjustable suspension, which in this model raises the body several millimeters using a set of toothed wheels that raise the shock absorbers. Remember that the “flesh and blood” Hummer EV offers up to three ground clearance settings, ranging from 257mm (Standard) to 404mm for Extract Mode.
In addition, its four doors open, and the hood and rear area are also practicable.
In fact, the tailgate reproduces the MultiPro system from GMC with which the electric Hummer is equipped, based on a hinged door that becomes either a panel or a step to access the box. Likewise, the lid of the box is lifted, being equipped with shock absorbers.
We will see if this new project by Alain B. becomes a reality or not. on your Youtube channel, has shaped other LEGOs of his own creation such as a Jeep Wrangler and the BMW i8, both also functional and remote control.
