The Roach Battle Rod is perfectly suited for the new post-apocalyptic reality of LEGO City. It comes with a rounded armor and low profile that let’s it speed through the vast deserts undetected. The LEGO off-road battle rod comes with twin cannon guns that can blow away any foe and its state of the art satellite radar communication system can connect back to the rebel outpost.

About the LEGO® Apocalypse

The Lego City we all know and love crumbled into post apocalyptic chaos after a droid up-rising. To battle these robot armies the brave citizens of Lego City banded together in remote outposts to re-group and fight back with custom combat vehicles and armament.

Build Notes

Over the years LEGO® has added and changed its parts inventory and whenever possible I try to provide alternate solutions for these parts below.

Alternate Color Ideas

If you do not have the Dark Tan Slopes you can substitute with an alternate color like the Light or dark Blueish Grey. If you want to go for a more worn Steampunk feeling you can incorporate some Reddish Brown, Silver and Gold Elements. Enjoy the build!
