My Mega Bloks/Construx 1987 customs

Hello everybody.

I don't know if there are many people here interested in this, but for me this is the best TMNT 1987 cartoon line. It combines my love for Lego with my love for the 1987 cartoon
Since Mega discontinued the line I made quite a lot of custom builds for the Turtles and the baddies. I'll showcase them more in-depth if anyone is interested, as well as post the instructions for who ever wants to build them.

This is a snippet of what I have done. Few of the photos are a bit older, some stuff changed a bit, and a bunch got added.

My first custom build was the Transport Module!

The model is built using Lego pieces, most of which were bought through BrickLink.

It can accommodate 4 figures and by pure luck fits perfectly inside the Technodrome's bottom floor.



Then a few months ago I decided to make a version 2, with figures sitting side by side (rather in some diamond position), and I added the wheels and different drill part.



For anyone interested in building one, here are the instructions for the version 2:

Wow, this is amazing stuff, dude. Looks totally legit! How inspired you were & how much love you have for the source material shows in the final product. Looking forward to whatever's next!

I came to this line pretty late, when the line was already over and it was clear that no sewer lair was going to be built by Mega. So I took it upon my self to build me a lair as close to the cartoon one as possible, using only Lego and limiting the size to a 48x48 baseplate (to keep the parts count a tad smaller). That's why Splinters meditation room is very small and behind the living room. If you squint hard enough you might see the turtle shell in the tetris like carpet
The last pic shows newly added stickers with rivets to the pipe door sections.

Unfortunately no instructions for the Sewer Lair, I made it before I knew how to make instructions, and making one now is extremely hard.




Thanks TheCanadiandrome and Powder

Thanks guys. I'll take them into consideration.


Here are some of the renders for the design phase, before I bought the needed bricks to build them

How does this look? It's still a work in progress, but I'd say it's mostly complete. It was difficult to find all the right technic parts to make it look good.

Some more Work In Progress.

I did Double Barreled Plunger Gun in both toy and cartoon colours. For scale you can see the size compared with the Turtle Van (Chanel 6 News Van is the same size). Any questions/suggestions?
