"Movin' movin' movin' movin'
Cruisin' cruisin' cruisin' cruising"
I am very pleased to introduce the Who Finds a Friend Finds a Treasure (in Italian: Chi trova un amico trova un tesoro) set to all of you.
Alan Lloyd (Terence Hill) fled from the bad guys so he found Charlie O'Brien's "puffin jam" boat as a shelter. With some luck, Alan set the direction of the boat to sail to the Pongo Pongo island where the treasure is located according to his uncle's map.
During the trip, unfortunately they both fell into the ocean so they need to swim to reach the island. After Alan and Charlie arrive to the island, they meet the leader of the local tribe, Anulu who helps them to find the treasure. While they are discovering the island, they notice that some bad guys, Frisco and the Pirate Captain also want to capture the treasure.
The set consists of 923 bricks and has 5 minifigures (Alan, Charlie, Anulu, Frisco and the Pirate Captain) and mainly focuses on Charlie's boat (with detailed interior and exterior).
Key features of the set:
- Paquito, the parrot
- Puffin jam
- Beans with onions
- Map of Pongo Pongo island
- Treasure (ancient idol)
- Fishing rod
- Compass (on the boat)
- "Hippopotamus" beefsteak
The reason I created this set is because as a big Bud Spencer and Terrence Hill fan (and also LEGO fan :P) I wanted to tribute with "LEGO related" concept to the greatest actor in the World. Yes, he is Bud Spencer (Carlo Pedersoli), who already passed away from our life:(
By this moment, on behalf of millions of people, I would like to express that you always made us to laugh and you are in our heart forever, thank you Bud, you are the GREATEST!
