If you are like me you have watched
Disney's Duck Tales and wanted to go on an adventure with the McDuck family!
Whether you grew up in the 1990s watching the original Duck Tales or are
currently a kid watching the rebooted 2017 series, Duck Tales is fun entertainment
for the whole family. The animated series follows the lives of Scrooge McDuck
and his three grandnephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie as they go on adventures with
their friends. The family is able to travel the world solving mysteries thanks
to the Sunchaser a giant red and yellow, amphibious cargo plane
piloted by none other than Launchpad McQuack. Launchpad is a lovable character
who is both the pilot and chauffeur for the family, he has the ability to
operate and crash any machinery on earth. Watching out for the boys on their
many dangerous missions is their uncle, the duck with all the bad luck, the
brave sailor Donald Duck. While the trio of boys can handle themselves in most
situations, it is their best friend Webbigail "Webby" Vanderquack granddaughter
of the housekeeper Mrs. Beakley, who’s brains and athletic ability often save
the day. Mrs. Beakley is no ordinary housekeeper; she is a highly skilled
former secret agent who can always be counted on to defend the family. Rounding
out the McDuck family is acclaimed explorer Della Duck the boy’s mother.
I built the Sunchaser in the style
of the 2017 Duck Tales reboot series which is currently on its 3rd season. This Sunchaser moc is comprised of approximately 1400 pieces, and has a
wingspan of 64 studs, a length of 63 studs, and a height of 34 bricks. It is
minifigure scale, and has seats for 8 in the cockpit deck, which is above the
massive cargo bay that comes with a black sedan, further room for minifigures is
found in the hidden lounge in the nose of the plane. The back end opens up
giving access to the cargo bay and cockpit deck above. The black sedan is 14
studs long and sits 2 minifigures.
Although there is no minifigures
pictured in my Sunchaser moc, ideally it would come with the 9 main characters of
Duck Tales, (Scrooge, Donald, Della, Huey, Dewey, Louie, Webby, Mrs. Beakley,
and Launchpad.) Given there already have been duck minifigures made in the past
collectible minifigure series, it should be feasible to include new Duck Tales
2017 style minifigures in this set if it is chosen by Lego Ideas.
The theme song of the animated
cartoon Ducktales is a catchy jingle that represents what the show is about.
"Life is like a hurricane, here
in Duck Burg
Race cars, lasers, aeroplanes, it's
a duck blur
Might solve a mystery, or rewrite
Duck Tales (woo oo)”
If you dream to explore the world with the McDuck family, please vote and share
the Sunchaser with your friends and family.
