Seasonally Inappropriate

Lego Easter Bunny Hot Rod

It’s the Fourth of July, and thus we have an Easter and Halloween themed double for you today! TLCB nailing holiday timings once again…

Anyhoo, this delightful pair of cartoon creations comes from Kale Frost of Flickr, who has built the Easter Bunny and a cavalcade of ghoulish monsters their own remote control hot rods.

Whilst we enjoy using these to chase down the Elves in the halls of TLCB Towers you can see more of Kale’s seasonal builds at his photostream – click the links in the text above to take a look!

Missed You Like Crazy

Lego Crazy Engine Racers

The Lego Car Blog Elves are most perplexed today. Somewhat unbelievably, seeing as these builds could almost have been made for them, they missed this unique collection of ‘Crazy Engine’ racers by yu chris. We have a reader to thank for their appearance and you can see more of each crazy cartoon contraption on Flickr via the link above.

The Search for Red Rackham’s Treasure

Lego Tintin Sirius

The Lego Car Blog’s offices don’t have a classy desk area with those little brass plaques and fancy green desk lights. We do have a mostly-stocked beer fridge and a shrine to Megan Fox behind the photocopier though, and not many workplaces can say that.

However, if we did have a fancy desk area we’d love to place this in it. This beautiful creation is a mini-figure scale replica of the Sirius ship used by Tintin in the search for Red Rackham’s treasure, and it’s ludicrously pretty. Built by previous bloggee Stefan Johansson there are gorgeous details and ingenious building techniques in abundance, and there’s much more of Stefan’s wonderfully photographed vessel to see on Flickr.

Dispatched

Lego Dispatch Rider Afrika Korps

If you’re a member of the NRA then everything can be improved with the addition of a gun. High school security? Add a gun. Patriotism? You’ll definitely need a gun. Motorbikes? Much cooler with a gun.

OK, we’ve made that last one up.* Still, Redfern1950s‘ previously featured Dispatch Bike has received a Second Amendment upgrade and even we** admit that it does look cool! Re-purposed in Africa Korps spec it also includes a serious looking cartoon rider, so it can now dispatch people instead of packages.

Click the link above to head over to Redfern’s photostream for all the pictures.

*Except we haven’t.

**There is an alternative.

The Stig Vs. Lightning McQueen!

Lego Cars 3

If you’re here and you’re six*, you’re going to enjoy the video below! Fresh from the Disney Pixar ‘Cars 3’ movie, Lighting McQueen, Cruz Ramirez and Mater are visiting the Top Gear Test Track in LEGO form, and they’re about to meet a very special resident!

LEGO’s official Disney Pixar ‘Cars 3’ Juniors sets are available to buy now.

Post-Apoc-Rod

Lego Post-Apoc-Rod

If ever there was a car styled by a TLCB Elf, this is it. Flickr’s Mark of Falworth clearly has Elf blood running through him which – whilst undoubtedly concerning for Mark’s friends and family – does mean his mind is capable of some gloriously outlandish oddities. There’s more to see of this one at his photostream via the link above.

Thunderbirds are GO(NE)!

Lego Thunderbird 3

Poor Alan Tracy. Left alone in space to man the Thunderbird 5 space station, in love with the beautiful Tin-Tin who’s back on earth, and having given up a career as a championship-winner racing driver, the youngest of the Tracy brothers seems to have got the bum deal. Well, apart from John of course, who has to wear lilac.

Still, Alan does get one perk, and it’s a good one – for he gets to pilot the insane Thunderbird 3 space rocket. Pictured here blasting off from Tracy Island, it appears that Alan and his brothers are abandoning earth for good. Maybe they’ve had enough of Donald Trump. Whatever the reason, it’s a spectacular scene containing some absolutely stellar building techniques, both in the wonderful recreation of Thunderbird 3 and the superb Tracy Island buildings and scenery.

Monstrophonic of Flickr is the brains behind it and there’s more to see of his jaw-dropping creation at his photostream. Click the link above to start the famous countdown. 5… 4… 3… 2… 1… Thunderbirds are GO!

Party Animals!

Lego Ford Model T Party Animals

Things are getting wild down on the farm! This menagerie of drunken farm animals doesn’t look dissimilar to the last party we had here at TLCB Towers. If you replace the Ford Model T with a wheelie chair. And the farm animals with a near-comatose TLCB staff writer. And the riotous abandon with remorseful crying. And ‘party’ with ‘drinking alone’.

Anyway, enough about this blogger’s Friday night, this wonderful scene comes from Paul (aka Brick Baron) of Flickr and it was built for this year’s BrickCon Lego convention. There’s more to see of his colourful party animals at his photostream – click the link above to make the jump!

Christmas Convertible

Lego Santa Roadster

It’s not quite the festive season yet, but as we hate Cyber Monday almost as much as we do Black Friday we’re willing to come a little early to avoid the frenzied consumerism. Anyhoo, Santa and his Elves (which, make no mistake, are a very different sub-species to ours) are about to enter their busiest month, so Saint Nic is having one last wild party before the hard work begins.

Father Christmas’s parties are world-renowned, and this one involves a sports car, a polar bear, a reindeer, and an anthropomorphic lump of snow, so it easily beats the last party we had here at TLCB Towers which involved little more than sausage rolls, cheap beer and regret.

LEGO 7 is the doorman at Santa’s shindig and you can see if your name is on the list to get in courtesy of his photostream – click the link above and cross your fingers.

When You Gotta Go…

Lego Toilet Go Kart

The brown rain, the trots, chocolate thunder, trouser chilli, a Havana omelette, the squits, devil’s coffee, Ghandi’s revenge…

We’ve all been there, and it’s always funny when it’s not you. Legohaulic has immortalised one of mankind’s universal afflictions in go-kart form (we particularly like the handy plunger for a steering wheel!), and you can see more of his Porcelain Express on Flickr. Grab a toilet roll and click the link above to join the queue for a number two.

The Mean Machine

Lego Technic Mean Machine

Sneaking along last is that Mean Machine with those double dealing do-badders Dick Dastardly and his sidekick, Muttley. And even now they’re up to some dirty trick! Charbel channels his inner cartoon racer with this neat Technic rendition of the Mean Machine. Check it out at the link above.

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.
