Regular readers of this farce of a Lego site may recognise this GAZ-2402. Matthew Terentev‘s soviet station wagon has appeared here before, first as a mundane family car and then as a V8-powered drifter. Now though, and perhaps mirroring where society is headed, Matthew has converted the classic Communistal estate car into something far more… aggressive.
As the world’s economy teeters on the brink of collapse, its climate on the brink of a catastrophic irreversible temperature rise, and a deadly disease has wiped out a million and counting, we’re waiting for the rioting and looting to start. And it’s not even Black Friday yet.
Matthew is well prepared for the impeding nightmare though, outfitting his GAZ-2402 with all-wheel-drive, raised suspension, an enormous spiky snowplough arrangement on the front (that necessitated the engine moving to the interior), and roof-mounted gun turret.
The office’s Rover 200 looks woefully inadequate for the coming apocalypse by comparison, so whilst we consider what we can do to upgrade it with $12 and some duct tape, you can check out Matthew’s post-apoc creation on Flickr via the link above.
The end is nigh.
