Prison Wheeler

Name of Model: Prison Wheeler
Created by: schlimps
Found at:
OK, so by now, most LEGO castles of any real size of some sort of jail or prison in them. You have to do something with the enemies you catch, after all. What, though, should you do if you want to move your captives to another castle, or use them to bargain with another kingdom? You put them in a little "prison wheeler" like this one. Note that the prison bars are really round fence parts (circa 1996), and that some Technic parts hold the jail cell in place. There is, of course, a reason for this cell to be very round and held up by Technic parts - it actually works as a prisoner-sized hamster wheel. If you look closely, you'll notice the clever use of a belt and a crown gear mechanism to make the prisoners spin when the cart rolls forward. Let's just go with the idea that it is a hamster-wheel sort of thing and not an instrument of torture, because torture is wrong and stuff, and you kids shouldn't be into that sort of thing.
