Creator 10302 Transformers Optimus Prime | Set Preview

This is the brand new LEGO Creator 10302 Transformers Optimus Prime set, and The Lego Car Blog Elves are wildly excited. Constructed from just over 1,500 pieces and measuring 35cm tall in robot mode, 10302 will arrive in stores in June of this year aimed at ages 18+ (which is just a LEGO marketing ploy […]

Tranforma Porka

Brilliant though the Porsche 911 is, it can be criticised for looking, well… almost exactly the same for the last six decades. What lies underneath the repetitive exterior however, has evolved hugely over the years, with turbo-charging, all-wheel-drive, and soon even electrification packaged inside the iconic body shape. And that’s sort of the point of […]

More Robots in Disguise

Alex Jones (aka Orion Pax)’s Transformers just keep coming! This has made the Elves very happy of course, as they now get to watch Transformers cartoons. Following his previous appearances here at The Lego Car Blog in December and October of last year, Alex has constructed another swathe of transforming Autobot and Deception vehicles, from […]

More Than Meets the Eye

It’s a happy day for the Elves here at TLCB Towers as a number of them found these brilliant Transformers Autobots by Flickr’s Alex Jones (aka Orion Pax). Normally this would have led to an Elf fight, but in a rare moment of Elven cooperation they approached us with their finds collectively, in the hope […]

More More than Meets the Eye

The Elves are in a very buoyant mood today! Flickr’s Alex Jones (aka Orion Pax) has been uploading Transformers builds and such a prodigious rate that we’ve been handing out meal tokens like Smarties. And we’ve also been handing out Smarties. These are a sample of some of his latest Autobot and Decepticon creations, following […]

Not a Television

Looking around at the archaic electrical equipment in TLCB Towers, you’d think Hitachi only make televisions and – long long ago – VCRs (although that’s the only way we can let the Elves watch Transformers cartoons). In reality though, the Japanese multinational conglomerate makes pretty much everything. Planes, trains, car systems, defence systems, ATMs, servers, […]

Switch-a-Stallion

If you’ve got one Ferrari in your stable, you probably have another too. And maybe another. If you’re like us though, even one Ferrari is a very long way out of reach, despite the glamour, fame, and groupies that blogging Lego creations brings. Fortunately regular bloggee Angka Utama has an answer to the multiple Ferraris […]

Hiding in Plain Sight

The words spoken by our favourite alien truck/robot protector at the end of the first Transformers movie, explaining not only his ongoing mission but also setting up the premise for an unending series of increasingly terrible sequels. Even the Elves have lost a degree of interest in the Transformers franchise now that Megan Fox isn’t […]

Mechstang

The vintage fighter plane theme continues here at TLCB with this… er, we have no idea. Mixing a mech with a P-51 Mustang, Flickr’s Kobalt has created something that every single Elf here at TLCB Towers thinks is the coolest creation they’ve ever seen. Head to Kobalt’s photostream to see more of his ‘Mustang Blondi’, […]

Have You Blogged My Car?

The Lego Car Blog Archives are an unnerving place. Vast, dark, and rumoured to be inhabited by a feral band of long lost Elves, they’re not somewhere that we enjoy frequenting. Fortunately we have a method for finding things that doesn’t involve potentially being stabbed in the legs by a wild Elf armed with a […]

Bumblebug

Before Michael Bay, Megan Fox and General Motors sponsorship, Bumblebee wasn’t a Camaro. He was in fact a humble Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle, a car that regular bloggee Ralph Savelsberg aka Mad Physicist recreated beautifully some years ago. Using – we assume – magic, Ralph has now turned his original (and perfect) Beetle design into […]

Autobots, Roll Out!

It’s been a while since we let the Elves watch a Transformers movie. This is partly because they’ve not found much in the way of Transformers-related builds, but mostly because after the abomination of ‘Transformers 4 – Age of Extinction’ we just couldn’t stomach any more Michael Bay directed nonsense. Today though, we’ve relented, because […]

Chib-Chibiny, Chib-Chibiny, Chib-Chib, Cheree*

Chibiformers. Another weird internet-based trend of which we know absolutely nothing. Still, despite our ineptitude when it comes to any nerdy fad, we do rather like these two neat ‘Chibi’ Transformers from TLCB debutant Hoyin Lau. Each model cleverly transforms between truck and robot mode, and there’s more to see of each build in both […]

Semi Prime

What if Optimus Prime was really, really cute. We’ll he’d look bit something like this, Sam C.‘s diddy ‘Chibi-Prime’. Sam’s tiny Transformer really transforms too, and he joins a few other Chibi-Formers at Sam’s photostream. Click the link above to take a peek.

Transformers…

…are actually pieces of electrical equipment. Regular readers of TLCB will know of the Elves’ obsession with the Transformers franchise. Finding the best Lego cars on the internet provides Smarties and meal tokens but happiness involves explosions, robots, more explosions and Megan Fox. You can imagine their excitement at finding Jakeof_’s latest build. The smoothly […]
