About this deal

All the people in the videos and comment section made it clear that 40469 was most definitely NOT minifigure scale.

It is based on the Tuk Tuk, an iconic mode of transportation for around the streets of India, where they are the most common method of getting around.My advice to LEGO fans everywhere is if you can make a set work in a way that makes you happy, do it. Yeah it looks nice, but I think it looks a bit too big for the minifig scale (even though "minifig scale" is a vague and inconsistent concept). This vehicle would be perfect for a minifigure travelling photographer or to enhance a Ninjago city.

Lots of eye-catching colours are used in this build, which captures the essence of the tuk tuk, while also giving a sense of fun of what riding in one is like. To give some highlights to the scene, I used some LEDs to light up the head and taillights of the taxi and to illuminate the windows of the houses.The blend of yellows, pinks, greens and blues, along with the orange and red studs lining the roof, results in an eye-catching build. But this version is something different, for one it’s not Minifigure scale, it’s also a little more detailed than those featured as part of other sets.

Later I watched some reviews on YouTube of the set (watching reviews of a set after I’ve already purchased it, defeats the purpose… I know). Tuk-tuk measures over 3” (9cm) high, 2” (6cm) long and 4” (10cm) wide – great for playing at home, but its size makes it easy to fit in your bag so you can enjoy the fun on the go. The front view shows many of the colours but doesn't look like a hodgepodge, showing the care the designer took in parts usage and colour blocking. We’ve supported 100’s of businesses with a variety of bespoke LEGO B2B services providing each client with a dedicated single point of contact throughout the process.Just like the 8-wide Speed Champions it would look ridiculously oversized next to typical City vehicles and buildings. I've seen a ton of people posting about how they're interested because they see/ride them all the time, but it didn't really strike me as a very British vehicle.
