Lovely jubbly – Del Boy’s iconic yellow van from Only Fools and Horses may be turned into a LEGO® model if fans get their way.
Shazam Productions – the media production company founded by Only Fools and Horses creator John Sullivan – is pushing ahead with plans for the distinctive three-wheeler to be immortalised by LEGO®, the world’s most popular toy brand.
A LEGO® prototype of the van along with provisional Del, Rodney and Uncle Albert minifigures has been created by professional LEGO® building company Bright Bricks – and it is now live on LEGO® Ideas website and if the project receives the backing of enough people then LEGO® may licence and release it.
“It would be fantastic to see the Trotter van available as a LEGO® set so we’re hoping Only Fools fans will get behind the idea and pledge their support,” says Shazam Production’s Jim Sullivan.
“Only Fools and Horses is a British institution and Del’s three wheeler is iconic so we think a lot of Only Fools fans of all ages would love the chance of owning one made out of LEGO®,” says Steve Clark, Managing Director of Splendid Media, which is handling the project on behalf of Shazam Productions.
Lego Ideas allows users to submit projects to Lego consideration as products. Successful LEGO® sets which have been developed through Lego ideas include Doctor Who, Ghostbusters, Big Bang Theory and Minecraft.
