This blogger stepped onto something soft and a little crunchy in the TLCB office today. An inspection revealed it as an Elf thoroughly smushed into the carpet. Hmm.
A glance up the corridor revealed several more flattened Elves, some in comical cartoon running-away poses, and the sound of a distant maniacal laugh.
One weary trudge later and the source was discovered; a monstrous remote control pick-up truck being controlled by a jubilant – and typically violent – Elf, that was intent on running down any of its colleagues with which it had a grievance. With our Elves, this meant all of them.
With the controls removed and placed under our… er, control, we could take a closer look at the vehicular weapon. Built by Lucio Switch, it’s quite an epic creation. Powered by two XL motors, Lucio’s Technic 4×4 Pick-Up features full RC drive, a supercharged V8 up front, fully independent suspension with three differentials, plus opening gull wing doors and hood.
