When we recently talked about the newly released 2018 LEGO Friends sets, several of our readers pointed out that the #41339 LEGO Friends Mia’s Camper Van looks very much like a LEGO Scooby-Doo vehicle due to the very similar color-scheme. 🙂
Indeed, the #75902 LEGO Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine (and also the #75901 LEGO Scooby-Do Mystery Plane Adventures) use the same lime-green and orange combination as the LEGO Friend’s Camper Van. However, while the Scooby-Doo sets add medium-azure to the mix, the LEGO Friends set uses dark-azure. They are very similar colors, but medium-azure is somewhat lighter and more greenish, while dark-azure is more bluish. In addition, the LEGO Friends Camper Van also includes quite a bit of white, and some lavender. However, ignoring those slight differences, the LEGO Friends Camper Van definitely has a Scooby-Doo vibe!
Our readers are not the only ones who noticed the resemblance. LEGO fan BashfulWitness completely reworked the #41339 LEGO Friends Mia’s Camper Van, including switching out all the dark-azure pieces to medium-azure, and ditching the lavender and white. There is also now a steering wheel (strangely, the original LEGO Friends Camper Van didn’t have one), and everything is decorated with Scooby-Doo stickers and printed parts. Looks awesome, isn’t it? (You can see more pictures here.)
The LEGO Friends Camper Van is not the only set BashfulWitness Scooby-Doo’ed. Check out these colorful versions of the Star Wars AT-AT and a couple of AT-ST walkers, operated by the whole Scooby-Doo gang! Notice that while the AT-AT is a modified #75802 LEGO Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine, the AT-ST walkers are using the mini Mystery Machine from the #71206 LEGO Dimensions Scooby-Doo Team Pack. You can see more pictures of the vehicles here and here.
If you would like to play around with the LEGO Scooby-Doo sets, they are no longer available directly from LEGO (they were released back in 2015), however you can still get them on Amazon, and other secondary LEGO marketplaces. The #75802 LEGO Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine is a particularly good purchase because it includes some really nice printed pieces, stickers and colors specific to the collection: LEGO SCOOBY-DOO SETS ON AMAZON, and of course, the newly released LEGO Friends Camper Van is available directly from LEGO at the LEGO Friends section of the Online LEGO Shop.
What do you think? How do you like the LEGO Friends Scooby-Doo camper van and the LEGO Star Wars Scooby-Doo walkers? Are there any other sets you would like to see modified with Scooby-Doo colors? Feel free to share your thoughts and own ideas in the comment section below! 😉
