The Hoonicorn, all the way from Norway
The Great Western Brick Show attracts exhibitors from all over the world, including Are from Norway who will be at the show for the fourth time. This year he’s bringing a new model:
“I’m bringing a model of The Hoonicorn to STEAM. What’s the Hoonicorn, you might say – so let me explain: It’s a rather heavily modified 1965 Ford Mustang that drifting icon Ken Block used in his “Gymkhana Seven” video, which has been viewed about 43 million times on YouTube. In total, the nine “Gymkhana” driving videos made by Block so far, have 387 million views on YouTube.
“Last summer, Block was in Bergen, Norway, where I live. I met him there and asked him to sign a LEGO piece for me, which he did – and then I set off building a LEGO version of his car. I choose to place it in a little vignette, because it needed to be presented in a proper setting (and I needed somewhere to place the signed LEGO piece), so my build is inspired by the booth where the car was on display at the 2014 SEMA show in Las Vegas. The model also features custom lighting, and of course Minifig Ken, which I felt it needed to – not least because, after all, his last name is Block…”
