The Maximum Force of the Future

Lego technic Mad Max V8 Interceptor

TLCB Elves only like two types of movies; those with robots, explosions and car chases, and those with Megan Fox in. Handily the Transformers franchise provides them with all of this, but Mad Max is a fairly close second, despite the Megan Fox shaped hole in it.

We haven’t let them watch the newest addition to the saga yet (the Elves are banned from our local cinema due a series of unfortunate incidents), but the late ’70s original and its ’80s sequel are regular fodder for the old TV/VHS combo situated in their cage room. But only once they’ve brought a Mad Max creation back for us to blog of course.

Today one Elf has been fed and lots more are happily cheering and whooping at the TV downstairs, because this most excellent Mad Max creation was brought into the office.

Hailing from the early original movies, Paave’s V8 Interceptor ‘Pursuit Special’ features Buggy Motor propulsion, a servo for steering, an on-board Li-Po battery, working suspension, and a whirling supercharger pulley.

There’s more to see of his brilliant creation on both MOCpages and Eurobricks – click the links to make the jump.

Last of the V8 Interceptors

Lego Mad Max V8 Interceptor

Max is Mad. His ride – the last of the V8 Interceptors – has been requisitioned by Immortan Joe, and he is not happy. It’s also been fitted with a few optional extras that probably weren’t in Ford’s official catalogue. This glorious shot comes from TLCB regular _Tiler. Click the link. You have to. There are flames.

The Last Law in a World Gone Out of Control…

Lego Mad Max Ford Falcon Interceptor

…Pray that he’s out there somewhere.

Mad Max Fury Road is currently setting movie screens alight, but it all began way back in 1979. Ralph Savelsberg has added the Ford Falcon Interceptor from the film that started it all to his movie cars catalogue. There’s more to see on Flickr – click the link above and Get Mad.

Lego Ford Falcon XY

When we think ‘muscle car’ we usually picture an American behemoth with a massive V8 and two stripes painted over the bonnet. However that would be stereotyping the genre, because this is an Australian behemoth with a massive V8 and two stripes painted over the bonnet.

Australia’s muscle car tradition is as strong as the US’s, and whilst their road racers are derived from their US parent companies, they were very much home-grown down-under.

Sadly in recent times all mass vehicle production has, or will very shortly, cease in Australia, with GM (Holden), Ford and Toyota all abandoning manufacturing in the country. Doc Brown’s 1971 Ford Falcon XY GTHO remembers a time when the industry was flourishing, and you can see more of his Power Functions controlled Technic supercar at both Eurobricks and Flickr.
