Cream Wrangler

Today’s title might sound like some sort of dairy-based burglar, but we’re actually referring to this most excellent 6-wide Jeep Wrangler TJ by regular bloggee 1saac W, which comes coloured in an unusual cream and light brown combo. Cunning parts usage including mini-figure hands for mirror brackets, half of a Lego lever for wiper arms, […]

LEGO Technic 42122 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon | Set Preview

The 2021 LEGO Technic set previews continue here at The Lego Car Blog, with this; the brand new 42122 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon! Adding another real-world manufacturer to the Technic line-up, 42122 will slot into the middle of the range, being aimed at ages 9+ and costing around £45/$50. 665 pieces make up the new Jeep […]

Purple Wrangler

Some cars look good in any colour. The Jeep Wranger is not one of them. But it does look good in purple, as proved here by Eric Badis of Flickr. Click the link above to make the jump.

Hungry Passenger

1saac W.’s brilliant 6-wide Jeep Wrangler first appeared here last week, but if you’re going to build a Jeep Wrangler, there’s only one we’re really interested in… With a quick update to turn the model to an earlier ‘YJ’ series and the addition of some red stripes, 1saac can now imagine an overweight nerd being eaten alive […]

America! F*ck Yeah!* (I)

Today’s Lego creation is for those of you convinced that the robot apocalypse / zombie apocalypse / race war is definitely going to happen, but that it’s global warming that’s the hoax. You know who you are! This Jeep Wrangler ‘Tactical’ has everything the conspiracy theorising nut job could wish for, including window protection, side-mounted […]

Escape to the Wilds

2020 has been a weird year. By ‘weird’, we mean ‘total crap’, and thus we completely understand those who choose to leave it all behind and head out into the wilderness. Two of the best vehicles for ‘overlanding’, as it is known, are the Toyota 4Runner and Jeep Wrangler, recreated here brilliantly in mini-figure scale […]

Bird Watching

This TLCB writer quite likes birds. They come in a hilarious variety of shapes and sizes, some of them can swim, run and fly (which makes them some sort of super animal), and some of them are – frankly – delicious. What’s not to like? Flickr’s Luis Pena likes them too, although he’s a bit […]

Beige Bricks

Beige is the colour of, amongst other things, hearing aids, baby sick, boring trousers, and 1980s Volvos. Not exactly an exciting hue. But somehow despite this history (or maybe because of it) beige still looks damn cool in the right setting. A Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is one such example, as demonstrated here by Ben of […]

My Other Car’s a Jeep

LEGO’s new Technic 42122 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon looks cool, although on close inspection not all that accurate, but is something of a disappointment technically. It does include plenty of decent parts though. M_longer of Eurobricks has used every single one of them in the creation of his 42122 B-Model, turning the Wrangler into a trophy […]

My Other Car’s a Jeep

LEGO’s new 42122 Technic Jeep Wrangler Rubicon set, revealed here last month, has only been released for a week or two, yet previous bloggee Eric Trax has already managed to turn it into something awesome. Using 557 of the 665 available parts, Eric has transformed his Wrangler Rubicon into this rather excellent off-road buggy, which […]

My Other Car’s a Jeep

LEGO’s 42122 Technic Jeep Wrangler Rubicon set seems to have only been on sale for about fifteen minutes, yet already the online Lego Community are successfully repurposing its pieces in new and interesting ways. Which is exactly what Lego building should be about! This 42122 alternate comes from Dyen’s Creations of Flickr, and there’s more to […]

Remote Control Rubicon

Fancy a dirty weekend? Then take your LEGO with you! At least, that what ArsMan064 of Eurobricks decided to do in entering a Russian trial/trophy event for remote control LEGO vehicles, claiming first place with his superb Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. Powered by two Large Power Functions motors, with a Medium motor used for steering, an […]

LEGO Technic 2021 | Set Previews*

*OK, the shortest and most underwhelming Technic Set Preview ever, but only because we’ve already revealed the 42122 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, 42125 Ferrari 488 GTE, 42123 McLaren Senna GTR, and 42118 & 42119 Monster Jam trucks. That leaves the two entry points to the 2021 Technic range, 42116 Skid Steer Loader and 42117 Race Plane, […]

Alt’s Alright

‘Alternative’ can mean many things. It’s a category of music that’s really rather mainstream (but pretends otherwise because it’s cooler that way), it’s the self-awarded title of a group of far-right nationalist scumbags, and it’s used to describe girls who look slightly different yet somehow all look exactly the same. We’re a Lego blog though, […]

Trailcat

We’ve featured some amazing remote control off-road vehicles here at The Lego Car Blog over the years. However despite their engineering excellence, they’re often massive, heavy, and very expensive to build. Not so today’s creation, which comes from previous bloggee, published author, and all-round Technic legend Sariel. Sariel has decided to take the Technic off-roader formula […]
