FebRovery is nearly over, but as we approach the end of the annual rover-building bandwagon we’ve got time to squeeze a few more in. Today’s is a fine way to finish, as surely all good events end with cheese. David Roberts‘ is the builder behind this ‘Edam Rover’, a giant wax-skinned contraption used in the Cheese Mining industry that has been so famously represented in countless Lego creations. Grab yourself a cracker and head to David’s photostream via the link above for a taste.
Everybody knows the moon is made of cheese. Flickr’s Galaktek is exploring the tasty future of lunar expedition with this professional-looking cheese mining team, who are working hard to bring the bountiful harvest to unadorned pieces of toast and dry crackers everywhere.
Complete with crane, cheese barge and a space mouse, the cheese miners look well equipped to extract the lunar-gold and transport it to earth for human consumption. Sadly the helmets necessitated by the moon’s lack of atmosphere prevent the plucky mini-figures from enjoying any of the cheese themselves, but we’re happy to report back on its quality should we be provided with a sample. Grab a cracker and head over to Galaktek’s photostream for a tasting.

Every Lego builder (and TLCB Elf) should know about David Roberts and his wonderful, whimsical builds. They embody the idea of Lego perfectly: build and have fun.
His latest creation, the ‘GOUDA space pod‘ is classic Mr. Roberts, a wonderful, quirky little build with a typically imaginative and clever back story. And he also builds Classic Space, so he must be cool!
