Super Speedster 5867 alternate: Jeep
A Jeep alternate built from the 5867 Super Speedster Creator set.
About this creation
I knew Nathan had already built a Jeep alternate for this set, but since Jeeps are one of my favorites (I drive one) and because I had not looked at his MOC for a couple weeks, I thought it would be safe to give it a try. After completion, I checked Nathan's and saw that our two grills/headlights are very similar, but I did construct my front end differently and there really isn't any other way to make a proper jeep grill/headlight combination without using these six pieces in this orientation. But nonetheless, credit should go to Nathan for that part of the design since he did it first. maybe one day i will be able to incorporate all the neat details and moving parts like Nathan's version has.

For comparison, Nathan's version can be seen here

Quoting Iain Marsh Are we allowed Minifigs?
I went ahead and included him for the photographs since it makes the MOC look so much nicer and we all know that the Creator kits do not include them, so it should not be too misleading that this is still a Creator Alternate. I figured it was ok since he is just there to make the photo look good and the actual MOC was still created from only the parts in the set. I was tempted to fill the trunk with tools but I figured that would be pushing the rules a little too far. Perhaps in the future I will have only the first photo include the minifig and then photograph the MOC from various angles without him.

That's a good jeep! I like the grille and I noticed the handle on the rear quarter panels. Does this mean it's supposed to be military?, because I know that on the non civilian versions, there were handles to pull it out of mud or a ditch or something.

The little side handles were meant for attaching gear or tools. They may not be a completely authentic detail but I thought they looked nice and added a little bit of interest to the rear tub.

Quoting Nathanael Kuipers Funny indeed to see certain details which ended up quite similar in our models. I guess those are just the iconic features of a Jeep. Does the minifig in the vehicle represent you in some way?
Even though there are minor differences between the two Jeep grilles (my headlights stick out further for instance), with just the parts in this set, it might even be impossible to make the iconic jeep grille/headlights on an 8-wide Jeep without using those 4 grille pieces and the headlight bricks the way that we both did. The minifig actually does represent a caricature of myself in the past, but I was never quite that much of a scruffy looking hippie. He sure looks right at home in a Jeep though! :)

So this is the jeep you mentioned earlier. Looks great! It has a good feel to it. The outdoor pictures really add a nice touch to the model.

Cool jeep. I really like the hood design and there is plenty of room in the back too. Love the mini fig.

Quoting Brody Allen Nicely done jeep. I have an 82 CJ-7 and you captured the contours and style really well with the parts you used.
Thanks Brody! It is a challenge using only the parts from a single set. I drive a 2008 Rubicon Unlimited. Not quite the beautiful classic CJ-7, but I sure do appreciate a second pair of doors so I can fit all my dogs in the back!
