Hot Copper

Lego Steampunk Hot Rod

This delightfully whimsical steampunkesque hot rod comes from perennial bloggee Redfern. With a V12 engine up front and copper detailing in abundance it looks to be just the vehicle for a vulgarian gentleman. There’s more to see on Flickr – click here to make the jump.

Chib-Chibiny, Chib-Chibiny, Chib-Chib, Cheree*

Lego Chibi Transformers

Chibiformers. Another weird internet-based trend of which we know absolutely nothing. Still, despite our ineptitude when it comes to any nerdy fad, we do rather like these two neat ‘Chibi’ Transformers from TLCB debutant Hoyin Lau. Each model cleverly transforms between truck and robot mode, and there’s more to see of each build in both modes at Hoyin’s photostream via the link in the text above.

*Yes, we’re still at the musical puns for blog post titles. This one was a bit of a stretch

Bazinga!

Lego Zinger Van

Apologies for using a well known catch-phrase from the laughter vacuum that is The Big Bang Theory in the title, but it fitted with today’s creation…

This is a ‘Zinger’, a ’70s phenomenon that we’re too young to understand, but apparently it involved shrinking your vehicle to an improbably small size, but leaving the engine and wheels as they were. Oh, and sticking a girl on the roof.

This brick-built example of the trend comes from Flickr’s Lino Martins, and there’s more to see of his rather neat Zinger Van at his photostream – click the link above to make the jump.

Meet the Flintstones…

Lego Flintstones Car

…They’re the modern stone age family.
From the town of Bedrock,
They’re a page right out of history.

Let’s ride with the family down the street.
Through the courtesy of Fred’s two feet.

When you’re with the Flintstones
Have a yabba dabba doo time.
A dabba doo time.
We’ll have a gay old time!

You can have a gay old time too, courtesy of hachiroku24 on Flickr. Click the link to make the jump.

Kapow! Bump! Wham!

Lego Batman Bumper Car Dodgem

Has there ever been a more perfect mash-up than this? 1960’s Batman – he of exploding-pop-out ‘Batwords’ fame – and a dodgem car surely means a cacophony of pop-up onomatopoeia at the fun fair. TLCB regular Redfern1950s is the builder and you can buy a ticket to the Gothem dodgems via the link above.

Despicable Motoring

Lego Despicable Me Gru Car

Ah Despicable Me, everyone’s favourite evil-villain-based computer-animated movie, including ours.

Unfortunately though, the film has been hi-jacked. Hi-jacked by the sort of people that feel the need to post what they’re having for breakfast on social media. Or to let everyone know that they really love their cat. Or – and we really can’t stress enough how awful these people are with this last example – sharing pictures of Despicable Me Minions with sycophantic phrases that have nothing to do with what the Minions in the picture are doing. At all.

‘Share if you love your best friend!’ Picture of a Minion. ‘I’m not fat, I just have airbags because I’m precious.’ Picture of a Minion. ‘Men have PMS too. Piss and Moan Syndrome!’ Picture of a Minion. It’s a cancer on the internet, and it needs to be stopped. And breathe.

Anyway, to offer some counterbalance to all the Minion related gibberish being produced by those with an IQ deficiency, here’s a Despicable Me post that doesn’t feature a picture a Minion. What it does feature is Gru’s rather magnificent rocket car, reproduced brilliantly in Lego form by Flickr’s -derjoe- and photographed by Peter Schmid.

There’s more to see at Peter’s photostream via the link above, plus you can build your own version as Peter has done courtesy of -derjoe-‘s book, which is available via Amazon.de here.

Cartoon Scarlet

Lego Captain Scarlet Patrol Car

What do spaghetti-O parasitic aliens fear most of all? Well according to Gerry Anderson, it’s a pointily-styled hatchback with a tail fin stuck on the roof. All is not what it seems though, as the driver of said hatchback has fortunately acquired the aliens’ powers of regeneration, rendering him ‘virtually indestructible’.

Captain Scarlet fought the Mysterons from Mars between 1967 and 1968, and if we’re honest we have no idea whether he and his Spectrum colleagues succeeded in thwarting the alien threat, so vague was the series’ ending. Still, it was miles better than Stingray…

This cheeky cartoon recreation of Scarlet’s Spectrum Patrol Car comes from serial bloggee Redfern1950s, and is beautifully constructed in his trademark style. There’s more to see at Red’s photostream – click the link above to make the jump to puppet-based sci-fi circa 1967.

Semi Prime

Lego Chibi Optimus Prime Transformers

What if Optimus Prime was really, really cute. We’ll he’d look bit something like this, Sam C.‘s diddy ‘Chibi-Prime’. Sam’s tiny Transformer really transforms too, and he joins a few other Chibi-Formers at Sam’s photostream. Click the link above to take a peek.

Compact Pussycat

Lego Wacky Races Compact Pussycat

And now here they are! The most daredevil group of daffy drivers to ever whirl their wheels in the Wacky Races. Competing for the title of World’s Wackiest Racer!… Oh! Here’s the lovely Penelope Pitstop, the glamour gal of the gas pedal.

Redfern1950s is back with one of the few remaining Wacky Racers he’s not yet built, Penelope Pitstop in the ‘Compact Pussycat’, and it’s taking every fibre of our restraint for us not to make lewd jokes, so we’ll end this post before we get into trouble – check out Penelope’s pink pussy here! Damn.
