Actually this is the most American thing* we’ve ever seen (following today’s earlier post featuring a ’70s muscle car with a giant flaming bird on the hood).
The Coca Cola Christmas truck is nearly as well-known as the guy drinking the coke on the side of it, and it’s been recreated astonishingly well in brick form by Flickr’s Lasse Deleuran, who might just have built the best Lego-lettering since we last said something had the best Lego-lettering.
Seriously though, it’s a mightily impressive mosaic that not only looks stunningly accurate, it’s so brilliant it almost makes the superb remote control tractor unit fade into the background. Which is what good branding is all about.
There’s more to see of Lasse’s amazing rendition of the probably the world’s most famous truck at his photostream via the link above, where you can also find a link to building instructions so that you can build this design for yourself.
*To maintain our BBC-like impartiality, here’s the Soviet version too!
This utterly beautiful Portuguese tram from Flickr’s rupilego was found on, er… The Brothers Brick. We were a bit drunk at the weekend and missed a few posts. But no matter, rupilego’s creation is gorgeous so it can appear here too. Plus our title is better. Anyway, there’s lots more to see at the link/s above!
Whilst not quite as glitzy as the Coca Cola trucks on the Christmas commercial, Karwik’s Star 28 Coca Cola delivery truck is one of the most charming vehicles we’ve seen this year. See the creation’s full gallery on Flickr here.
N.B. If you’ve seen the current ‘Share a Coke with…’ advert and you’re inclined to share a Coke with one of our Elves, please make sure it’s ‘Diet’. Giving them sugar is a serious mistake.
Toyota MR2 Turbo
An unusual paint job for a race car, but somehow it seems to work. Dylan Denton is the creator behind this 1997 Toyota MR2 Race Car, complete with fizzy drink sponsorship. Unfortunately for us it got the Elves in the mood for sugar, and we’re still fixing The Lego Car Blog office as a result. So whilst we get busy with the gaffer tape, you can view the MR2’s full gallery on Flickr.
