The Love Bug

Lego Herbie Beetle

Following much Elf grumbling due to today’s earlier digital creation, we’ve decided to treat them to a movie afternoon. See, we are nice occasionally! Plus they’ve found some good creations today. The first of their finds is this, probably the most famous (and loved) movie car ever, ‘Herbie’, a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle with a personality.

Star of the 1968 movie ‘The Love Bug’, in which a struggling race driver is given a helping hand by the conscious Volkswagen, Herbie went on to star in many sequels, including the recent atrocity featuring a pre-breakdown Lindsay Lohan.

TLCB favourite Ralph Savelsberg aka Mad Physicist is the builder of this brilliant Miniland scale version of Volkswagen’s most popular car, and you can see more his Lego Herbie by clicking the link above. We also highly recommend a watch of The Love Bug for those that haven’t seen it. Judging by the elated noises coming from around the TV in the Elves’ cage room, they agree too…
