Santa-Charged

We already know Father Christmas is a pretty cool dude. He owns an array of machinery (according to you lot), from hot rods to hover cars, and Supras to snowmobiles, and now it’s the turn of Santa’s sleigh to get an upgrade. Flickr’s tony bovkoon has given Saint Nick’s flying present distribution system a lot […]

Dodgy Drag

This Elves are very excited today. Not only does this excellent 1970 Dodge Challenger feature a hood scoop (Elf points), many drag racing modifications (more Elf points), and a brick built nitrous kit (even more Elf points), it’s fully remote controlled too, with LEGO’s monstrous Buggy Motor driving the rear wheels. A Servo powers the […]

Sands of Time

If this TLCB Writer makes it to old age he’ll likely spend his days sat in an armchair, TV guide in hand (with the news and gardening programmes highlighted), bemoaning the deep untrustworthiness of anyone under the age of 30. Not so this elderly dude, who’s not only hitting the beach to surf some rad […]

Dodge Challenger R/T – Picture Special

Launched in 1970 the Dodge Challenger was the Chrysler Corporation’s answer to the Ford’s Mustang and General Motors’ Camaro. To compete with the wide variety of models available from Ford the Challenger could be specified in a myriad of engine and trim options, from a 3.4 litre slant-6 making about 4bhp to the monstrous 7 […]

Speed Champions 2021 H2 | Set Previews

The Elves have been busy! A crack team of ‘volunteers’, sent into the bowels of The LEGO Company’s HQ, have returned, some of them without any German Shepherd teeth marks at all! The fruits of their mission are six new Speed Champions sets for 2021, and – more excitingly – two brand new manufacturer partnerships. […]

Dodge Challenger R/T – Picture Special

This utterly glorious creation is a near perfect scale replica of the mighty Dodge Challenger R/T, very probably the definitive muscle car of the early 1970s. It’s been built by previous bloggee Havoc, and it is an absolute work of Lego art. Fully detailed from the radiator hose in the engine bay right down to the […]

The Other Challenger

The Dodge Challenger has appeared here numerous times over the years. This isn’t that Challenger. Nope, this one is made by Caterpillar, and it comes from a series of tractors that were the first to be specifically designed to run on tracks. This brilliant Model Team recreation of the latest Challenger MT865C comes from the […]

Speed Champions 2019 | Set Previews!

A few weeks ago a crack team of The Lego Car Blog Elves were dispatched over the perimeter wall of The LEGO Company’s HQ by way of the office catapult. Tasked with uncovering LEGO’s new-for-2019 sets, those that made it back to TLCB Towers would be revered as heroes, whilst their fallen comrades would be […]

Vanishing Point

This radio station was named Kowalski, in honour of the last American hero to whom speed means freedom of the soul. The question is not when’s he gonna stop, but who is gonna stop him. Ralph Savelsberg pays homage to one of the greatest road movies of all time. See more of Kowalski’s Dodge Challenger […]

Vanishing Point

Suggested by a TLCB reader, this Technic Dodge Challenger by Flickr newcomer Dustyen055 includes Power Functions remote control, working lights, and one very cool stripe. The star of the 1971 road movie Vanishing Point, the Challenger goes out with a bang. We’d quite like to recreate the final scene with Dustyen055’s model and a pair […]

Space Hazzard

This wonderful classic space Dodge Charger* is the collaborative work of Kristi and Cody at Custom Bricks and C3Brix respectively. Kristi has been hard at work knocking up some most excellent decals to decorate Cody’s Charger design. As well as the classic space iteration above, Kristi has liveried the most iconic Charger of them all, the Dukes of […]

Vanishing Point

The chase. The desert. The shack. The girl. The roadblock. The end. Nick Barrett recreates the ultimate road movie with his superb forced-perspective scene from the legendary 1971 film ‘Vanishing Point’. The piece earns him a place in the MOCpages 2013 MOC Olympics semi-finals, and you can see the amazing techniques that Nick used to create […]

Don’t Show Me The Money

The story so far… The LEGO Company make the 9398 Technic remote control Crawler. It works well and looks awful. LEGO launch a competition to design a prettier body. Said contest is won by a talented Russian gentleman called Egor Karshiev, whose ‘Boss Crawler’ design gets the nod. LEGO announce they will only make 20,000 of […]
