    The other day I spotted a Defender "Trollhunter Edition"
    That brought my thoughts instantly back to the cult film "The Trollhunter." from around 2012
    Absolutely a movie to see for any LR enthusiast. You can get some ideas by wathcing the trailer: http://www.magnetreleasing.com/trollhunter/ or
    Small glimpses of the Def. but try to find a way to watch the full movie, lot of good LR driving there

    I tried many times but never got more than 1/2 way through it......
    I Recall the advert in LRO from 2011 or something from the chap who was hired to make a Defender look "TrollaLized"

    I like it, I've watched it a couple of times, the key is to to get that its a comedy, not always obvious in Norwegian films. I don't think they have a lot to laugh about in Norway. I've spent quite a lot of time there and they have 2 modes - very sober and dour, or completely off their face and collapsed. Occasionally there's a breif moment of relaxed and happy when they pass from mode 1 to mode 2 but you need to be quick to see it. ("Headhunter" is good too)

    Is this it?
    Attack your 110 with a hatchet and call it a troll hunter edition defender?

    Then hook it up to a sh!te caravan and drive around the mountains in it?

    I thought a Trollhunter was some bloke late on a Friday or Saturday, pissed up trying to get hold of some old munter for the night.

    So how long can you leave those lights on before the engine won't start? Answers in seconds please.

    Those do look a bit like troll claw marks!

    I know Norwegians like their daytime running lights but that's taking it a bit far.
