Walk this Way

Lego The Walking Dead RV

The world’s second favourite television RV has featured here at TLCB before, and now Flickr’s Ralph Savelsberg (aka Mad Physicist) has taken Dale’s RV from the hit AMC series The Walking Dead to a new level. This flawless recreation the classic Winnebago includes a complete interior, authentic blood splatter, a shotgun-armed Dale, and – of course – a hungry zombie. There’s lots more to see on Flickr – click here and get ready to run!

Lunar Love Bus

Lego Space VW Camper

We’re pretty sure that over the years quite a few custodians of Volkswagen’s iconic Transporter have been on a trip to outta space. And then woken up spooning a stolen traffic cone and smelling of something foreign. Seriously kids, don’t do drugs. Anyway, back to the model; this neat VW Camper-esque creation comes from piratecox as part of the Febrovery fun over on Flickr, and we can only imagine what that mini-figure spaceman has got inside his ‘air’ tanks. See more via the link above.

Flower Power

Lego VW Camper

We’d steer clear of this flower-laced Volkswagen T2 camper – it’s most likely filled with smelly hippies and dirty bong water. But it does make for a neat Lego model. Filip Gabryel is the builder and there’s more to see here.

The Snail

Lego Classic Motorhome

Taking inspiration from nature’s gypsy, Flickr’s LimitlessBricks can take his home wherever he goes. Probably quite slowly. There’s more to see of his marvellous creation at the link above.

Bare Metal

Lego VW Transporter Workshop

It’s not often that we see a Lego recreation of a vehicle in any state other than pristine condition. TLCB regular Norton74 has bucked this trend with a new addition to his brilliant previously blogged workshop – a fantastic bare metal Volkswagen Transporter shell. The shell itself is a neat idea, but it’s Norton’s superb garage tools which steal the show. You can see the image above – suggested to us by a reader – in full size on Flickr.

Bricking Breaking Bad

Lego Breaking Bad Meth Lab RV

Possibly the greatest TV show of recent times is back (sort of) with the arrival of the new spin-off ‘Better Call Saul’. Here at TLCB though, we’re all about the original – and what better way to remind ourselves of the five seasons of brilliance than with two of Breaking Bad’s most infamous vehicles; Walter White’s Fleetwood RV meth lab, and his hideous (and perfectly cast) Pontiac Aztec.

Both of the Miniland-scale Lego recreations in this post have been built by Stephan Sander, and they can be viewed in more detail on either MOCpages or Flickr.

Das Auto

Lego VW Adverts

MOCpages’ Yann (XY EZ) has been hard at work recreating some of Volkswagen’s classic printed marketing, using the official LEGO camper set as a base. You can see all of Yann’s brilliant brick-built versions of the 1960s advertisements via the link above, including comparisons with the lovely original artwork.

Halloween Themed Title

Lego Technic VW Camper

This may look like a tenuous attempt to link today’s post to the spooky festival in which we’re blogging it, but it was planned all along. Definitely.

Anyway, this gorgeous Type 2 Volkswagen Transporter Bus is the work of Master MOCer Sheepo, who has (much like Volkswagen themselves) repurposed his previous Beetle chassis for a whole new job. Underneath the wonderfully recreated Technic bodywork there’s a choice of remote control drive or a ‘manual’ variation with working drum brakes, steering, 4+R gearbox, suspension and the famous flat-4 engine.

So what’s so spooky about it? Well firstly, any car that can drive itself is up to no good, and secondly, would you ever get in one of these if it stopped to pick you up after your car had broken down at the side of the road? Exactly. Sheepo’s Lego version even has doors that lock too…

You can see more of the Volkswagen Bus on Eurobricks, at Sheepo’s own website, or via the YouTube video below.

Hippies on Ice

Lego Volkswagen Transporter Snowcat

Dude! We like, totally need to tie-dye some warmer threads if we’re going to take a trip in this Vee-Dub. Andrea Lattanzi aka Norton74 has transformed Volkwagen’s faithful T1 Transporter van into something far more winter-ready. Time to take the Russian President a flower of peace? Something* makes us think Putin probably won’t appreciate the arrival of hippy rainbow colours though…

*Possibly it’s the homophobic, country-destabilising megalomania.

Hipster House

Lego Camper Bike

If there’s something more painfully hipster than this Camper Bike, we’re yet to see it. We’re not sure whether owning this pedal-powered home would make you look; a) very cool, b) like a failing meth cook, or c) like some kind of human snail. Whichever it is, Ultimate Design Bricks is the builder of this whimsical contraption, and you can see more of his creation on MOCpages here, or on Flickr here.

Classic Camping

Lego VW Camper

The sun has been shining for weeks here at TLCB Towers, so we’re feeling very picnic-y!

This superb mini-figure Volkswagen Camper by Flickr’s Kosmas Santosa has the whole office yearning for an outdoors lunch. Not with the Elves of course, as that would be madness.

See more of Kosmas’ Camper at the link, while we enjoy an Elf-free afternoon off.

Volkswagen ‘Garage Life’ Picture Special

Lego VW Transporter Garage

Today’s post is something a bit special. Andrea Lattanzio (aka Norton74) has appeared here at TLCB several times with his hugely impressive European trucks, and most recently with his beautiful adaptation of LEGO’s 10220 Volkswagen Camper. His modified 10220 repurposed the original set as a canvas covered pick-up for Volkswagen Service, and Andrea has now constructed a stunning workshop to compliment his original model.

Lego Volkswagen Transporter Pick-Up

Entitled ‘Garage Life’, Andrea has recreated everything found in a typical workshop to exceptional detail, including every fitment, amenity and tool. Highlights include a Lego compressor, engine hoist, pillar drill, jack, rolling tool box, broom, axle stands, stereo system, sink with hand wash…

You can see all of the details above plus plenty more besides by visiting Andrea’s enthralling Flickr photostream or MOCpages account. Which is where we’re off to now. See you there…

Vee Dub Mod

Lego 10220 VW T1

Volkswagen’s Transporter is one of the most heavily modified vehicles ever made, so it’s a little surprising that LEGO’s own superb 10220 Volkswagen T1 set doesn’t seem to have followed suit. After all, LEGO is designed for modifying! We think it’s probably due to boring collectors being boring. Anyway, one builder who’s got his 10220 out of the box and had some fun with it is Norton74, a previous TLCB regular with his fantastic trucks.

Norton has removed the camper portion of his VW set and rebuilt it as a canvas covered pick-up, resplendent in Road Service livery. We think it looks even better than the original! See all the photos of the mod on MOCpages, and if you’ve got a 10220 sitting unopened in a box; you know what to do!…

Something for the Weekend

Lego Pick-Up Truck Camper

It’s the long Easter weekend here at TLCB, when the roads are full of people getting away from the cities and into the countryside for some relaxation, extreme sport or… walking. Which counts as neither. Flickr’s colognebrick has built the perfect vehicle for a mini-figure get-away, and makes his TLCB debut with this lovely pick-up truck camper. See more on Flickr above.

Dub Club

Lego Volkswagen Beetle and CamperThere’s not much cooler than a pair of air-cooled Volkswagens in summer. Legopard builds both Volkswagen’s iconic Beetle and Camper on MOCpages and Flickr. Like, dude.
