Spring Loaded

Lego 4x4

The prolific de-marco is back, with very probably the coolest 4×4 a mini-figure could own. LEGO’s ace spring-suspension from the late ’80s – early ’90s jacks the truck up, and a host of neat details including a bull-bar, light-bar and side exit exhaust are all included. See more on Flickr via the link above.

Ambulance!

Yesterday’s belated birthday celebrations have left a trail of bashed and battered Elves across the Axminster in the The Lego Car Blog offices. The effects of jelly and ice-cream on our mythological workforce was quite startling, following their meagre diet of meal tokens and Smarties.

What better way to clear up the bodies than this lovely 5-wide ambulance from the prolific de-marco? Click this link to see more views.

Box Fresh

Lego Land Rover

No matter where you are in the world certain things are guaranteed. The elderly are (and always will be) in charge, Donald Trump will say something inappropriate on Twitter, and you’ll absolutely definitely be out when the delivery company attempt to deliver your package.

Today we have two extremes of the logistics spectrum, from a Land Rover Series 1 delivering where the roads are made of sand, to a sliding-door delivery van navigating city streets. Neither will arrive at a time conducive to actually dropping off your parcel though.

Both vehicles are the work of TLCB regular de-marco and there’s more to see, including building instructions for each model, at his Flickr photostream. Click the link above to take delivery.

6×5(Wide) II

Lego Town Skip Lorry

Flickr’s de-marco is becoming a regular here at The Lego Car Blog with his ever-growing garage of superb 5-wide Town vehicles. Here are no less than six of our favourites from his latest batch, all of which are available to view at de-marco’s photostream and many include building instructions too!

Lego Fire Truck and Ice Truck

As well as brilliant 5-wide cars and SUVs de-marco has built some of society’s more unusual vehicles, which are of course the ones we’re featuring here. Yes, we know we’re a bit odd. From a functioning skip lorry (top), to a fire engine (above left), freezer-truck (above right), and airport step truck (below) all de-marco’s builds are wonderfully creative, instantly recognisable and – most importantly – playable miniaturisations of their life-size counterparts.

Lego Town Airport Step Truck

All of de-marco’s builds include a few neat working features and they’re also packed with the related paraphernalia associated with their task, including traffic cones and roadsigns in the rear of the highway maintenance truck (below left) and a hand-truck for delivering water-cooler bottles attached to the water delivery truck (below right). Which as everyone knows is a pointless tool, because water-carrying trucks are always annihilated by passing car chases

There’s more to see of each truck at de-marco’s Flickr photostream by clicking here, where you can also find links to building instructions so you can build these for yourself. Click the link above to take a look!

6×5(wide)

Lego Lada Niva

It’s a bumper crop today at The Lego Car Blog! Previous bloggee de-marco has been very busy of late, building a plethora of 5-wide Town-style vehicles.

Lego Pick-Up Trucks

Ranging from beautifully constructed classic pick-up trucks above, through a Humvee, an airport luggage tug, and even a Baywatch-esque coastguard vehicle (allowing us to get Pamela Anderson into the tags), de-marco’s small-scale creations are wonderfully life-like replicas of their real-world counterparts.

Lego Airport Tractor

You can view each of the 5-wide models featured here, plus lots more besides, courtesy of de-marco’s Flickr photostream. We’ll get you started with the Lada Niva pictured at the top of this post, which is our favourite – but then we’re a bit weird like that. Choose your own via the link above!

4x4x2

Lego Ford F-250 1975

It’s a dirty double today at The Lego Car Blog! First up (above) is TLCB regular _Tiler‘s wonderful 7-wide lifted 1975 Ford F-250, complete with beautifully chromed bumper and grille pieces and some marvellous Technic balloon tyres.

The second model in today’s double-helping of rough-riding fun comes from previous bloggee de-marco, with this supremely neat 5-wide classic Ford Bronco-esque off-roader, which has been cunningly constructed from bricks placed almost entirely sideways.

There’s more to see of each creation on Flickr – check them out via the links above whilst we congratulate ourselves on making it the whole way through this innuendo-strewn post without referencing your Mom.

A Little Pick-Me-Up

Lego Town Pick-Up Truck

It’s a been a small-scale day here at TLCB, proving that you don’t need NASA’s budget and more bricks than a LEGOLand theme park to build something blogworthy. Our final post of the day comes from Flickr’s de-marco and it’s entitled simply ‘Blue Pickup’. Neat building techniques abound and you can see more of de-marco’s lovely 5-wide truck at his photostream via the link above.

Big Wing

Lego Mercedes-Benz AMG GT3

We’re back! After a few days eating chocolate eggs and drinking beer TLCB Team are back in the office. The Elves, left to their own devices for a few days, are pretty hungry, and we have a back-log of vehicles to publish.

We’ll start with this, a rare small-scale post because… well, we knew what it was from the moment we saw it, which is no mean feat at this scale.

This superbly recreated Mercedes-Benz AMG GT3, complete with a monster high downforce aero kit, is the work of previous bloggee RGB900, and alongside this racing Mercedes he’s built several other well-known supercars in Speed Champions style. You can see more of them and the AMG at his photostream via the link above.

Space Rod

Lego Classic Space Hot Rod

TLCB favourite Billyburg might be stretching the rules of Febrovery a bit with this one, but seeing as we suck at sci-fi, but we do love hot rods, his classic space liveried ‘Retro Pick-Up Rover’ is right up our alley. See more on Flickr at the link above.

Little Wonders

Lego 1946 Alfa Romeo 6C Freccia d'Oro

You don’t need ten thousand bricks to appear on The Lego Car Blog. Around one hundred is plenty, as proven by Flickr’s Johnni with the lovely 1946 Alfa Romeo 6C Freccia d’ora pictured above, and Robert4168 with his superbly inventive micro-scale ‘Buccaneer’s Dread’ pirate ship. See more of each via the links.

Little Wonders

Lego Cars

The last few posts here at TLCB have been skewed towards the big Technicy end of the spectrum, but you don’t need a billion bricks and your own workshop to build something blog-worthy.

Proof comes from Flickr builders de-marco and Horcik Designs (who’s appearing for the second time today). De-marco’s 5-wide mini-figure coupe and Horcik’s neat hovercar can be found on Flickr via the links above.

Mini Motor Mania

VT 01

The appropriately named Vinny Turbo has just uploaded a load of new builds onto his MOCpages and Flickr accounts. Unfortunately this has resulted in a disorderly hoard of Elves stampeding into The Lego Car Blog offices and demanding Smarties of all sorts of colours. After dispersing our chaotic co-workers with a liberal use of Mister Airhorn, we’ve chosen a couple of the best to share with you.

At the top of this post is the Integra, a re-worked version of an earlier car, which now comes with adjustable front Bat-spoiler. At the bottom of this post is the sleek and refined VTS V10, which features some interesting SNOT bodywork. Also worth a look are the Bentrolls Steam Cloud limousine and the VTS Edge with its curvaceous black body. Click on the links in the text to see more of Vinny’s work.

Mellow Yellow

Lego 5-Wide Car

You don’t have to blog an enormous, remote controlled behemoth to appear on TLCB (although it’s nice if you do!), small stuff is very welcome here too, especially if it looks as good as this. Vinny Turbo is the builder, and you can see more of his 5-wide muscle car on Flickr.
