PRESENTING THE ALL-NEW 2011 SHELL 'RANGER' MINI PICKUP TRUCK. SHELL COMPANY WANTED TO REACH TO THE MINIFIGURES THAT CANNOT AFFORD THE FULL SIZE SHELL PICKUPS. SHELL COMPANY OF COURSE BORROWED THE NAME 'RANGER' FROM THE 'FORD RANGER'. SHELL EXPECTS THE MINITRUCK TO SELL WELL.
About this creation


THE IMPOSING GRILLE OF THE SHELL RANGER. THE USE OF THE BLACK BRICK AND THE YELLOW ROUND LIGHTS MIGHT SEEM FAMILIAR TO MOCPAGE USERS. THE GRILL AND LIGHTS WERE INSPIRED BY AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET. THE MINITRUCK DESIGN CAME OUT WAY BETTER THAN I COULD HAVE EXPECTED.



THE BACK OF THE SHELL RANGER WAS PASSED ON FROM SHELL'S OWN '2010 SHELL LEGO TRUCK',WHICH IS NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION. NOTICE A VERY NEAT DETAIL ABOUT THE SHELL RANGER: THE FRONT AND BACK LIGHTS ARE EXACTLY THE SAME BRICK BUT JUST DIFFERENT COLOR. THIS GIVES THE MINITRUCK A CLEANER LOOK.



COMPARED WITH ITS VINTAGE LEGO COUNTERPART, THE SHELL RANGER IS VERY IMPOSING. THE SHELL RANGER LOOKS AND FEELS 'THOUGH'.



THE SHELL RANGER MINITRUCK HAS THE SAME SIZE AND DIMENSIONS AS A VINTAGE LEGO PICKUP. THIS IS THE SMALLEST TRUCK MANUFACTURED BY SHELL TO DATE.



THE HOOD CAN BE TAKEN APART, BUT IT HAS NO HINGES. THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A BUDGET TRUCK.
THE MINITRUCK IS POWERED BY AN ALL-NEW ELECTRONICALLY FUEL INJECTED 'MTRONSTAR' ENGINE. THE RED PART IS DISTRIBUTOR/SPARK PLUG PART AND THE WHITE ELECTRONIC LOOKING BRICK BELOW THE RED PART IS THE ACTUAL ENGINE. THIS ENGINE IS NOT AS REFINED AS THE ONE ON THE FULL-SIZE '2011 SHELL TRUCK'.



THE MINITRUCK ACTUALLY HAS AN INSTRUMENT PANEL BELOW THE GLASS. THE SMALL DESIGN DOES NOT PERMIT THE PLACEMENT OF MORE FANCY INSTRUMENT PANELS LIKE ON THE FULL-SIZE '2011 SHELL TRUCK' THE IDEA OF INSTRUMENT PANELS BELOW GLASS WAS PASSED ON FROM OLD SHELL FULL-SIZE PICKUPS.

Quoting Alex B Pretty Nice! It looks basic and low budget :) One thing I noticed the Shell car company is missing is a SUV of some sorts ;)
YES and you are right! Shell was actually designing a truck-based SUV out of the 2011 Shell 'Transport' Pickup truck. But Shell decided to cancel the project because it look TERRIBLE.
