Never said it was WG testing subs. Dude built an RC LEGO sub that fires off fireworks from underwater.

 

For those that hate subs, there are depth charges as well.

He showed up in my feed a while ago. I subbed for the luls. It makes me want to get back into modelling a bit.

They even dropped depth charges on it. That's awesome.

Reminds me I my youth when I would make submarines out of tin cans and blow them with fire cracker depth charges.

I was stuck with the little plastic army men in a sand pile with the BB gun as arty

Working RC Lego Submarine

By "working" I suppose they mean that it sinks...

 


BTW, Sub_Octavian did not accept a question last night about submarines, though he did mention them in passing as something that WG wants to do (eventually) due to user demand.  (IIRC, it was about bringing back the Snowflake event.)

Yes, it goes down and up. It has some bolts taped to the bottom for stability and to counteract all the air bubbles that the LEGO bricks will hold. They kitbashed waterproof RC motors and servos into LEGO Bricks. Besides the prop, the rudder turns and the missile hatch opens.
