Not all the colours would be my first choice but the 4x4 wedge and some of the modified bricks are only available in certain colours, so I found it a challenge to try keep the buggy "on theme".
The buggy and cannon are powered by the kyptonite housed over the rear axle. At one stage I had thought of having Lex stood in the back of the buggy firing the cannon with the Joker driving but it looked a bit odd so I decided to modify it.
I recently acquired set 6519 Turbo Tiger (http://brickset.com/detail/?Set=6519-1) and thought it was a neat way of making a roll cage, so it inspired me to make the dune buggy. I really like the way the headlights turned out, although if this was to be a production model I could forsee Lego wanting to remodel the front because it's a bit fiddley for youngsters to build.
In terms of pricing I think this would be a £10 set or it could be combined with a set like the Robin's Quad bike I made earlier for £14-£15. I'm not sure why Robin would be chasing Lex Luthor though, someone will need to think of a creative storyline! ;-)
