I’Ve got the uh wallace and gromit remote control car um. I brought this recently a second hand. It comes with the box as well as you can see here, i’m. Not actually got a photo of it in the box uh, i probably should have done, but so as soon as it came, i got really excited so i just took out the box and that um also it came with instructions and clear instructions. So obviously you had to take the bottom out and unscrew bits and pieces to get the batteries in um. There was a battery in the controller. You can see the controller here and you won’t forget what it is, because the controller does actually sell on it. Wallace hasn’t got it as you can see here, um so yeah, um, so yeah it was a 9 volt battery and three aaa batteries from inside um. Then underneath um, you can just about see some of the batteries. Actually the thing and there’s an on off switch and it does work so yeah it does work and uh. As you can see, wallace is at the wheel. There got it in the passenger seat um and in the film um what’s, going on with the cursed aware of it. When this first appeared, this fan, uh wallace was seen driving it, but so was gromit as well and also a hutch the rabbit who was sort of transforming into wallace. And i really like this van it’s, not the only model of the van i’ve got i’ve, also got this airfix model of it.
My brother made me quite a few years ago, and i actually remember the member from the film that van being a lot more weather than this um there’s a little bit of weathering on the side. As you can see here, which is quite nice and underneath let’s, say yeah there’s some weathering on it, but uh yeah, i think it’s a nice ban overall, but also the registration play on it, hop to it as well. You can just about see which obs is a bit of a pun because uh, obviously you know they’re riding the town of pests that are taking vegetables, mainly rabbits, um, yeah, so i’ve always been a fan of wall street grommet, and i remember seeing this van years Ago, because they don’t make this anymore, but when they did make it being out in lots of toy shops, mainly boots. I remember in my local boots and toy section. They have it um and also they say this fan’s based on austin, and that van was also was either the same. Family painted or a new model was using the next film a matter of life and death, as well as they granted the scene, driving that as well as well as voice and also in their latest adventure. The big fix up um the van’s also been they’ve, got the same van again but repainted. So i don’t know if it’s just that they keep on reusing the same van repainting.
It i’m not too sure um, but this is a great fan. Um had a little rumble outside, it runs really nicely Applause and it was not appearing more films again um. Obviously, as you know, wallace uh used to be voiced by peter salas and thought she passed away a few years ago. Um but yeah i’d still like to see them in more films. I mean they have done some more television adverts than that recently without peter seller’s voice and wallace. So so, hopefully um do that again. Don’T know really hopefully but yeah. I think this is a great car round, a really nice detail and yeah. I definitely recommend, as you get it uh one thing i will say, though so well, it looks really nice and i think, and that the wing mirrors here are quite flimsy there. They look hard, but when you touch them they’ll actually like plastic, they bend a lot. So that would worry me about falling them off. I think they should be a bit more sturdy um, but that’d be my own sort of criticism in the model i mean as well. I suppose, if i had to be really critical and obviously you’ve got the sticker bottles going up there and the windows were just black, there be shame they hadn’t the sticker, they’re looking onto the inside of it or if they actually had models of walls and garment. Rather than just a sticker um, but yeah it’s, a great little thing really enjoyed, i had little supposed play with it as well: um yeah but yeah.
I do really like wall stream. I hope they appear again and i think my favorite one would have had to be in the film the wrong trousers and there’s now also a national wrong trousers day. Um. Who would have obviously thought that at the time when nick parker created it – and i think that bart’s quite genius – really, i think, it’s fair to say um but yeah great little remote control, um car van this.
