‘It’s Got a Cop Motor…’

Lego Dodge Monaco Blues Brothers

It’s been a while since we featured one of your suggestions; this one was discovered by one of our readers on the Lego Ideas creation sharing platform. It’s a recreation of the 1976 Dodge Monaco from the 1980 film ‘Blues Brothers’ by newcomer eini1971, and you can see more at the link.

Cum On Feel the Noize

Lego Bluemobile Dodge Monaco

The Lego Car Blog Elves are – despite their small size – quite fantastically noisy creatures. Thus they were delighted to find two noisy creations today, and then almost immediately enraged to find that LEGO bricks produce no noise at all, even when they’re shaped as if they do.

The first of their finds (above) comes from Flickr’s Nik J Dort, who has recreated the iconic ex-police Dodge Monaco complete with roof-speaker from the 1980 film ‘Blues Brothers’, which until recently held the record for the highest number of vehicles destroyed in a movie. Watching this destruction has placated the Elves somewhat.

Their second find comes from a builder suggested to us by a reader, LEGO Will, but sadly from a movie the Elves are unable to watch yet as they are still banned from the local cinema. Will’s mini-figure scale recreation of the ‘Doof Wagon’ from the ridiculous (and brilliant) 2015 film ‘Mad Max – Fury Road’ can be found on Flickr too – click the link above for all the pictures.
