My mini fig version of Technic set 42008
About this creation
This is my mini fig version of the new Technic set 42008, although Iím sure by the greenness, this model really doesnít need an explanation for itís inspiration.
Iíve got the actual Technic set on my Christmas list so I built this to give me my fix in the meantime.
This is a 7 wide with room for 2 up front.
As you can tell by my mock box it has few Technic features thrown in.





This picture shows the controls for the functions.




Sometimes the Dark Knight has car bother. He forgot to renew his AA membership so we got the call. Itís gonna cost him!




Tool lockers.


And one for the oil can.


That coffee mug which happens to feature in every Lego City truck. It's thirsty work being a mini fig!


"Hmmm, did I leave my coffee in here?"


A shot to show some of the mechanical gubbings.




A short stop motion video of the beast in action


Thanks for looking!

This a great build, you certainly have packed in tremendous details and functions! I love the combination of Technic and City, probably too expensive for LEGO to produce but a great idea. I combined Creator and Technic here: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/314969 Kudos and Happy New Year!

Lego should use this to start a UCS city set! The ingenuity in this set is mind blowing. Excellent!

Quoting david drake I think this is SOOOOO much better than the Lego set you have on your Christmas list! You may be disappointed on CHristmas evening when you get it built and compare it to yours! The thought that went into this is phenomenal. Nevermind all that stellar amazing working functionality that it's pretty obvious you poured lots of hours of thought and experimentation into to get right. What I am probably the MOST impressed with is that you built this truck in the ever-not-so-popular dimension of SEVEN STUDS WIDE !!!! This is THEE solution to the mixed-linear optimization problem of how skinny can a truck be built that fits two minifigures wide. You must have jumpers all over that cab! I've been using jumpers to get 2 minifigs into a 6-stud wide opening for years, but your use of elements on the doors allowed you to squeeze it down to a 7-stud wide truck! Frackin' KUDOS to ya'
Thanks David, that is one big compliment. Surprisingly enough I've only used 6 jumpers in the whole build and that is just for the truck front. 7 wide isn't as bad to work with as you think compared to doing 5 wide cars, now they do eat the jumpers! Totally agree with 6 wides, jumpers are essential but I find that mini fig trucks in 6 wide just don't work that well. If you look at the city range it's pretty weird that most cars and trucks have the same size wheels. Thanks for the comment.

Quoting David Roberts A great concept. It would be super if Lego did sets like this, though they might be a bit pricey! All of the "new" Technic beams and components make it possible to bring fun functions down to minifigure scale. Will you be doing more? The dark green colour and overall shape remind me of those big, Scammell or Foden towtrucks that you see at vintage rallies.
Thanks David, I agree that the price if this was an actual set would probably be very expensive. Lego ain't cheap at the best of times. I plan to do more technic/city crossovers and I have touched on the idea with a couple of previous MOCs (see my skip lorry and container truck). Thanks for the great comment.

This is brilliant. I have the big one, and it's good, but I'd prefer this. Superbly executed - it's on The Lego Car Blog as well.

great towing Andy! green is beautiful, I admire your skills to use functions to make it really work, the narration was pretty funny too, 'where s my coffee?' xd, towing the city towing, and the tumbler had me giggle, the video was a nice complementary touch, bravo!

Great truck! I like the idea adding technic functions to a minifig "city" model. And I know that this is not easy at all... Wonderful!

Incredible! If this were a real LEGO set, I'd buy it in a flash. You've done a great job matching the look and functionality of the Technic set at a fraction of the size.
