My mom has a Big Banana skateboard from when she was a kid, so I dug it out of the garage and made a LEGO version of it. I had to cover the entire top with a bunch of plate pieces, because it was so bendy, the wheels could barely hold it up and every time I picked it up to work on it, it fell apart. It is also kind of hard to tell here, but the underside has an angled taper to it in a similar fashion to the real skateboard.

 

I will not try skate on this. Mainly because the wheels don't do anything and this would have to be massively glued to hold up anything heavier than my cat. The only person who gets to try to skateboard on this is Andy MacDonald because BIONICLE TOA TOUR AWESOME.

 

This will be at BrickFair VA in a few weeks!

Wow. For a moment I actually thought the first picture was a picture of the real one.

 

Very accurate. My only suggestion would be to use this, this, or this for the wheels.

 

Then again, it looks as though you might have been going for a "brick only" build, so maybe not.

 

 

But it is really-REALLY good. And Andy MacDonald would like it.

Here's a webcomic you might want to check out.

Like a cross between X-men and ghostbusters.

I played Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition. PM me if you do as well!

It certainly looks great, and if your cat can ride it, I demand a picture of your cat on the skateboard. Ooh, and you should also take some more pieces and build decals on it like Pepper Roni's board had in LEGO Island, because that's the first thing I thought of when I first saw the bright yellow.

It could have been done in a day or two, but it took about 2 weeks because I kept running out of the pieces I needed.

I see. So it's a size of a normal skateboard right? The skateboard used as comparison isn't a smaller one or anything?

It is a replica of a real-sized skateboard.

I agree with the above. That skateboard was awesome, and so is this.

The skateboard looks awesome! It is very similar to the actual skateboard.
