Bang, Zoom, Straight to the Moon!

Lego Retro Rocket

Entitled ‘1950s Rocket Ship’ this gloriously retro rocket by Flickr’s Jason Hlavenka looks exactly nothing like the early days of space travel. However it does look absolutely wonderful and thus we’ve stolen it from The Brothers Brick. They don’t know our identities so we’re safe. Plus they’re nerds so we’re doubly safe. Anyway there’s more to see of Jason’s brilliant rocket, which includes some genuinely ingenious building techniques, on Flickr. Click the link above to blast off.

Febrovery Mash Ups

The fun festival of all things Lego, sci-fi and car-like that is Febrovery has started over on Flickr. These mash-ups of parts and stickers from LEGO’s Disney “Cars” license and old space themes from Frost really caught our eye. The pair of bonnets (hoods for American readers), wrapped around the rocket on the M:Tron design, are particularly good bit of NPU.

The group is already filling up with a wide variety of eccentric and sometimes useful looking vehicles from a wide variety of builders, many of whom are TLCB regulars. Click this link to the group to find out what’s going on.

Arrested Development

Lego Arrested Development Stair Truck

We nearly titled this as ‘Stair-rested Development’… but whilst jokes about your Mom feature here regularly, that was one pun to far. Anyway, this is the stair truck from Arrested Development, recreated (rather wonderfully we might add) by TLCB regular, Master MOCer, and Brothers Bricker (boo!) Ralph Savelsberg aka Mad Physicist.

Somewhat surprisingly, considering how excellent Ralph’s model is, it functions too, with the staircase neatly extending like your Dad does when watching Game of Thrones (jokes about your Dad are fine too…). There’s more to see of Ralph’s superb airport stair truck at his photostream – take a look at his extension via the link above.

Mega Micro Space

Rat Dude has built this tiny version of the classic 6989 Mega Core Magnetizer. It comes complete with a telescopic grab arm and little rover, just like the original. There’s also a very neat helicopter, featuring some ice-lolly NPU. Being a food item, it was instantly spotted by the TLCB Elves. Click the link at the start of the post and see if you can spot it too.

Space Smarties

Lego Spaceship

Uh oh… sci-fi. We’re so bad at these. One of the proper blogs will probably find these shortly and do them justice, but in the meantime you’ll just have to make do with us.

This is an LL424 Aura Battle Frigate and an LL112 Harbinger Missile Corvette, and we have absolutely no idea what that means. What we do know is these rather wonderful creations by Flickr’s ZCerberus are orange, and orange Smarties are clearly the best kind. We therefore have a happy Elf to reward, and you can check out more of these excellent builds via the link above.

What Lies Beneath

Lego Concept Muscle Car

This remarkably neat 6-wide muscle car by Angka Utama hides a cunning secret beneath its exterior curves.* Yes, underneath the white bodywork is another complete car, and it’s equally neat too. There’s more to see of Angka’s ingenious creation/creations on both Flickr and MOCpages – take a look via the links.

Construct-a-Corvette

Lego Chevrolet Corvette C7.R Le Mans

Lasse Deleuran (aka gtahelper)’s stunning Chevrolet Corvette C7.R has appeared here at The Lego Car Blog before, and now he’s made another. OK, that doesn’t warrant a re-post, but the arrival of free instructions does! You can build your own incredible Lego replica of the Corvette C7.R in 2017 Le Mans GTEPro spec at either Eurobricks or Flickr – click the links for the details.

Little & Large

Fortunately not a Monday night in front of the tele with eighties’ comedy duo Syd and Eddie but a ravishingly beautiful, small-scale version of Lego’s 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Master interpreter of the Porsche in Lego form, Malte Dorowski is the creator of this 42056 in a smaller scale. Stay tuned to TLCB for another small version of 42056 tomorrow…

Hey Nikita

Lego Bentley Continental

There’s a lot of music this writer would like to have been old enough to hear first time around. Elton John’s ‘Nikita’ is not one of those songs.

Elton’s 1985 hit probably says something poignant about the Cold War and oppression behind the iron curtain, but to the casual observer it could appear as though he’s being chauffeured to a Communistical border post in a bright red Bentley just to mock those on the other side.

Whatever, this neat Lego replica of Elton’s Bentley Continental convertible – complete with Elton himself – comes from previous bloggee Ralph Savelsberg aka Mad Physicist and it’s a superb recreation of the car (which was Elton’s own) from the music video.

There’s lots more to see of the Bentley and Ralph’s other cars at his photostream via the link above, and you can try to work out what the hell Elton John is up to by clicking here.

And Now for Something Completely Different

Lego UN Mech

The UN, more used to arguing in a big room and then agreeing to do absolutely nothing, or tooling about in white SUVs, is about to become a lot more badass. Marco Marozzi is the man responsible for this injection of  badassery with his, er… whatever this is, and there’s more to see of UN-livereied mech on Flickr at the link above.

It wouldn’t be a sci-fi post about which we know absolutely nothing without a link to something silly…

Life-Size Harley Davidson 48

Lego Life-Size Harley Davidson 48

Certified LEGO Professional Ryan McNaught (aka TheBrickMan) is back, and with one hell of a ride! This is a 2018 Harley Davidson 48 motorcycle, and it’s life-size! Built in a perfect 1:1 scale Ryan’s build uses over 64,000 LEGO pieces and took a team of three builders over 200 hours to create.

Lego Life-Size Harley Davidson 48

The motorcycle is 100% LEGO aside from a metal frame inside to allow for easier transportation (meaning this model can be ridden!) and working lights front and rear, and is part of the Brickman Awesome Lego show that is touring Australia and New Zealand this year.

There’s lots more to see of Ryan’s amazing 64,000-peice life-size Harley Davidson 48 at his Flickr photostream, where you can also check out other builds from the Brickman Awesome Lego show including a huge mini-figure scale Antonov 225 aircraft, and you can read more about the show and book tickets via The Brickman website by clicking here.

Bora Bora

Lego Maserati Bora

So good they named it twice. The French Polynesian island does look pretty nice, but it’s not quite as lovely as this. This brilliant little Speed Champions style 1971 Maserati Bora comes from previous bloggee Jonathan Elliott and he’s captured the gorgeous Giugiaro design wonderfully. There’s more to see of Jonathan’s 6-wide Bora on Flickr at the link above, where you can also find several other superb Speed Campions classics.

Black and Yellow

Lego Renault RS2027 Vision

Yea, uh huh, you know what it is
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow

The words of well-known poet Wiz Khalifa there, rapping about wasps, or taxis, or school buses, or Watford Football Club. Whatever he’s on about we have two black and yellow creations for you today, and each is miles better than Wiz’s affront to lyricists everywhere.

First up (above), suggested by a reader, is Nathanael Kuipers’ Renualt RS2027 Vision, and if it’s the future of Formula 1 after the introduction of cockpit canopies we’re all in. See more on both Flickr and MOCpages.

Today’s second creation (below) comes from Brick Knight of Flickr, who has equipped those thieving space pirates at Blacktron with one hell of a cool ride. There’s more to see more of his beautifully photographed Blacktron Scout Buggy via the link above.

Now where were we? Oh yes…
