Wallace & Gromit was a show that I grew up with, it was a family sit-down moment, with all of us glued to the TV when it was on. From their first outing in ‘A Grand Day Out‘ to their more recent movies, we love this duo and we’re delighted to see someone designed, made and submitted their project to the LEGO Ideas platform.

Introducing A Grand Day Out By fan Designer Vaicko.

This is my build based on “Wallace & Gromit: A Grand Day Out”, the first short of this iconic duo. Includes three characters: Wallace, Gromit and Cooker the robot. – Vaicko

The idea is taken from the duos first outing and captures the Orange Space Rocket ship extremely well. This is where the whole set resides, inside the Rocket, along with two Minifigures, Wallace & Gromit, and Cooker the Robot.

Inside the living quarters of the Rocket is what you’d expect to see if you’ve watched the classic show. It has all the mod-cons, even has Wallace’s armchair and ball of wool for knitting. The porthole where Gromit looks out of is a nice touch, being able to switch them is great, from a standard porthole to one with Gromit pictured in the drivers seat.

The two Minifigures are amazing and look just like their onscreen counterparts. Wallace has his wide cheeky grin, dark green knitted jumper whilst Gromit has this beige fur and floppy ears.


Also included in the build idea is a picnic area, this is the whole reason Wallace wanted to travel to the Moon, to get some Cheeeeeeese. Complete with a small picnic blanket, basket and assortment of food and goodies. I love the fact that Wallace got to eat his cheese & crackers!

The set idea itself it fully polished and could easily be made into a purchasable set, I’d buy it for sure and display it proudly on my shelf.
