Model: The Rickmobile
Line: Earth C-137 Rickmobile Tour Bus exclusive
Where to get it: Either you had to be lucky enough to get one off the Rickmobile when it was touring, or you can buy one right now on eBay.
Why it’s in my collection: Because Rick and Morty! Really though – how could you pass up a diecast Ford Transit van that is designed to resemble the giant, drunk, lunatic of a cartoon character hanging on to it? AND IT’S REAL! Yes, I bought the diecast model out of a full-sized version of the exact truck that toured around the country selling Rick and Morty promotional items. It was such an awesome experience, especially if you are a R+M fan…if you weren’t a fan, then you were probably wondering what all the weird people were doing around a giant truck made up to look like a cartoon version of a mad scientist. It was a wild day not even an episode of Morty’s mind-blowers couldn’t erase.
I couldn’t help but get out the Funko Rick and Morty action figures and do a few photos with them. “MORTY!!? You shrunk our van you tiny idiot!” – Rick probably.
As you can see they did an excellent job recreating Rick’s hair for the card art.
The actual van itself is a mini masterpiece. They manage to catch all of Rick’s…ah….good sides and put them in diecast form. The body, the actual “Rick” part, is metal and has good weight to it. The chassis is plastic and the wheels are tiny, but it does roll. They roll, but not well though, so we’ll call them Jerry wheels.
Imagine driving down the road and seeing this view in your mirror. Definitely photo worthy.
The Rickmobile’s Rickmobile is really one-of-a-kind when it comes to styling. I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether that’s a good or a bad thing.
Annnnd awaaaay we goooo! 🏁
