Death on Wheels

Lego Yamaha YFM 700 Quad Bike

Today’s news is full of the story of America dropping its largest ever non-nuclear bomb on some unsuspecting militants in Afghanistan. Weighing 9,800kgs and at over 3oft in length, the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb sure is a devastatingly deadly bit of kit. But we suspect it’s not half as deadly as this, Yamaha’s YFM 700 quad bike.

Designed to roll over on top of you if you so much as look at it, the YFM 700 is the sort of machine that is way, way too fast for almost everyone that will ever climb atop it. But it sure is a cool way to go. This Lego recreation of the lethal Yamaha comes from Flickr’s André Pinto, and thankfully it’s much safer than its full size counterpart. See more at André’s photostream via the link above.

Army Ant

Lego Technic ATV 6x6 RC

This is a real off-roader! Previous bloggee Pipasseyoyo has miniaturised one of the most accomplished all-terrain-vehicles, and his remote controlled Technic 6×6 ATV is every bit as capable as the real thing. With 6-wheel-drive powered by two XL Motors, locking differentials, a two-speed gearbox and working steering powered by a Medium Motor each, plus suspension on all three axles, Pipasseyoyo’s creation can climb like an ant. There’s lots more detail available on Brickshelf, including a rendering of the awesome 6×6 drivetrain and a video link to see the model in action – click the link above to make the jump.

Mod My MOC

Lego Bullpup

The Lego City Police Department must be fighting a whole new breed of mini-figure criminal these days, judging by the ferocity of their latest vehicles.

Both this Town style helicopter and armoured personal carrier have been enhanced considerably by the addition of some killer third party accessories. Normally we don’t post non-LEGO components here at TLCB, but the examples above compliment the creations superbly.

Suggested by a reader, Andrew Sommers is the builder and you can see more of his police force’s impressive armoury on Flickr.

Elf-ish

Lego Bionicle Quad ATV

This one freaked us out a bit today. The first – and probably last – Bionicle creation to be blogged here is this colourful ATV by TLCB newcomer Dave Foreman, and it bears an uncanny resemblance to the Elf that found it. Very unnerving…
