Lego Technic Bladerunner Spinner

The iconic Spinner from the 1982 sci-fi epic ‘Blade Runner’ has appeared here in multiple forms over the years. From large scale brick-built versions to smaller mini-figure builds, there’s a spinner for everyone. Except Technic fans, who have – until now – been unrepresented.

Syd Mead’s infamous design has finally been Technic-ed, thanks to previous bloggee Jeroen Ottens who has created this utterly wonderful (and brilliantly motorised) version of the Spinner in Technic form.

With doors that open electrically and a motorised transformation from ground to flight modes, Jeroen’s design is more than a visual treat too. You can watch that transformation in action by clicking here and you can see more of the build on Flickr, where a link to instructions is also available.

Spinner

Lego Blade Runner Spinner

Syd Mead’s ‘Spinner’ police car from the movie Blade Runner has become one of the most influential sci-fi designs of all time, with the basic premise used in countless films since its first appearance way back in 1982. The Spinner also makes a fine subject to recreate from Lego, and Flickr’s -derjoe- has done it superbly. You can see more of his mini-figure Spinner via the link above.
