Last week I reviewed the WWG sedan cars and I mentioned just what a versatile model it was. Here, I take a look at one of the sedan car variants - the taxi. Like the two sedan cars reviewed last week, these two taxis can be found in the Mayhem Bank set.
I'd just like to point out a small flaw in the vehicle design, which can clearly be seen in this photo above. Notice how the two front wheels curve inwards. This should not be possible on a real car. I suppose it could be corrected but it seems like too much effort for a flaw that very few people would notice. From a distance or from the side the vehicle seems fine.
I applaud the decision to produce two versions of the taxi - one all yellow and the other, yellow and white. Variety is good. It is clear that Mayhem City has at least two taxi firms operating. You can also see that these cars are filthy dirty and could do with a trip to the car wash. Hmm, car wash - there's an idea for a new set.
The only real difference between these vehicles and the sedan cars, other than the paint schemes, is of course, the inclusion of the taxi signs on the roofs. Both signs are identical.
These are useful additions to my fleet of vehicles. They also show that the designers at World Works Games listen to what their fans want. Before the Mayhem Bank set was released I was one of a number of people requesting the release of taxis on the WWG forum. And lo, it came to pass! Not only did they release these modern day taxis but in the same set is a design for a 1930's style taxi. How cool is that?
