The Blues Brothers: Cop Chase
"We're on a mission from God"
In 1980 universal released their block buster film The blues brothers featuring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd and many famous blues artists and other famous actors including john candy. The Blues brothers earned just under $5 million in its opening weekend and went on to gross $115.2 million in theatres worldwide before its release on home video, dvd and now Blu-ray. It has now since then become a cult classic, spawning the sequel, Blues Brothers 2000, 18 years later. the movie is a tale of redemption for Jake and his brother Elwood, who take on "a mission from God" to save the Catholic orphanage in which they grew up from closing down. To do so they must reunite their band the blues brothers band and organize a performance to earn $5,000 to pay the tax assessor Steven Spielberg.This build is a representation of the chase scene that appears in the feature film the Blues Brothers. in this scene Elwood runs a red light after they leave church and are on their way to Elwood's apartment, but moments later he is pulled over by two Illinois State Police troopers who learn of his suspended license and they attempt to arrest him, when he suddenly speeds off, escaping through the streets of Illinoi and eventually leaving them behind in the shop fronts of Dixie Square Mall. I used reference pictures that I found on Google as well as some screen shots from the movie its self to stay as true to the movies design as possible in Lego form.
This model has up to 750 pieces and contains 4 mini-figs! and the price of this set would be approximately £35.
