After you get struck by lighting, there’s Thunder!

Did anybody get reference? Anyway… VIC-Thunder, build by the incredibly talented Chokolat Shadow, while technically not a Ninjago MOC, is an amazing mecha, worthy of all our awe, due to it’s share awesomeness. So, why is it featured on BrickSamurai then? Well, by author’s own admission, it’s based on Jay’s Lightning Jet (the best Ninjago vehicle set, in my opinion), which he just had to turn into a mech.

This build is so sleek – and as you know by now, I love sleek builds. It’s bird-like features fit the theme so perfectly. The colors really blend well in this MOC. I don’t know whether it was intentional or not, but the added color palette matches Nya’s old colors. Judging by the number of visible balljoints and pins I’d say the mech is very poseable. And just when you thought that this build has nothing more to it, you find out it can transform into a (lightning) jet.

Didn’t get the reference, but I am curious. The mech is definitely sweet.

It’s from GTA: Vice City – one of the commercials on V-ROCK radio station. I guess I grinded that game more than others 😀
