Mod My Horse

It’s been a while since one of our the Elves found a ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ creation, but they’re now all happily watching it in their cage room giving us a few hours of peace.

Their reward comes courtesy of Flickr’s Kale Frost, who has recreated the double-decker Cadillac from the post-apocalyptic movie rather well in Lego form. He’s also done so by basing his design loosely (very loosely) on an existing set, uploading a video alongside his model that provides a few hints to how the process to turn a LEGO set into something else entirely can begin. As the No.1 question we receive here at TLCB is ‘How do I build this?…’ it could prove a useful watch for many readers.

Head to Kale’s photostream via the link above for more images, and if you’re yet to try building your own creations and are unsure of how to start, take a look at the video – it could be the beginnings a whole new building chapter…

Maximum Madness

These marvellous Lego recreations of the vehicles that starred in ‘Mad Max – Fury Road’ – some seen before here at The Lego Car Blog – have recently been re-imaged by their creator, Flickr’s Nicola Stocchi. Nicola’s models capture the insanity of the real cars brilliantly, and there are now instructions available for all four builds so you can create your own War Rig Convoy at home! Click the link above to become shiny and new.

Digi-Max

Lego Mad Max Fury Road

Today’s find might be digital, but seeing as the Elves have been watching Call the Midwife, Downton Abbey, or some other period drama that’s most un-Elven, we’re willing to post it, as we get nervous when they start doing unexpected things. We can also post it because it shows how a digital creation should be presented. Designed by Nicola Stocchi it’s a rather excellent recreation of the Nux Car from ‘Mad Max – Fury Road’, and good news! Instructions are available! Head over to Flickr for more images and the all-important instructions link whilst we let the Elves watch the movie…

Gigahorse

Lego Mad Max Fury Road Gigahorse

It’s been a while since the last ‘Mad Max – Fury Road’ vehicle featured here at The Lego Car Blog. This means the Elves haven’t watched the movie in ages, seeing as they’re only allowed to do so if they find an appropriate creation.

Cue much Elven celebration today therefore, when one of their number returned to the office with this, a rather excellent recreation of the Gigahorse stacked Cadillac from Flickr’s hachiroku24.

Not only has hachiroku replicated the movie car brilliantly, he’s also made instructions available so you can build one for yourself. Head over to his photostream via the link above for more.

Once I was a Cop…

Lego Mad Max V8 Interceptor

…A road warrior searching for a righteous cause. As the world fell… each of us in our own way was broken. It was hard to know who was more crazy. Me… or everyone else.

_Tiler returns to The Lego Car Blog with the last of the V8 Interceptors and one of the moodiest shots we’ve published to date. See more on Flickr.

The People Eater’s Limousine

Lego Mad Max Fury Road People Eater's Limousine

It’s been a while since we featured a vehicle from Mad Max – Fury Road, but thanks to a reader we’re back in the apocalyptic wastelands of George Miller’s 2015 epic. The Elves – despite not finding this creation themselves – are watching a screening of the movie in their cage room, so we can probably expect extreme violence from them tomorrow. In the meantime let’s take a closer look at today’s build.

Based on an AM General M814 military truck with a Mercedes-Benz W123 limousine body mounted atop it, this is the ‘People Eater’s Limousine’. Like all the vehicles from the movie the truck/limo hybrid was built for real, using two salvaged Mercedes-Benz limousines due to be scrapped by a wedding car company.

In the film the truck is used by the Mayor of Gastown as his own personal transportation and can also refine oil on the move, allowing his business to continue earning revenue even while he traverses the desert between Gastown and the Citadel. A smart man then, but he also wears nipple-clamps at all times, so that probably cancels out.

Nipple-clamp wearing businessman aside, this Lego recreation of the People Eater’s Limousine is about an accurate a replica of a Mad Max – Fury Road vehicle as we’ve seen yet, and includes a highly detailed engine, a perfectly replicated interior, and the two oil-refining trailers in tow.

It’s the work of Scott of Flickr and there’s a huge gallery of images available to view at his photostream, which also includes some of the other vehicles from the Mad Max – Fury Road film. Click on the link above to make the jump to Scott’s photostream, and if you want to see what happened to the real vehicle (clue: fire and explosions!) then click here!

Maximum Madness

Lego Mad Max Cars

There have been three Mad Max movies to date, and with the latest re-ignition of the franchise promising a few more films to come our Elven workforce, whose second love after Megan Fox in Transformers is post-apocalyptic violence, are very excited. The Elf that discovered this photo is something of a hero amongst its colleagues today then, and it has also earned itself three meal tokens. We have seen a couple of these builds from Flickr’s Tim Inman aka rabidnovaracer before, but they look damn cool together don’t they? You can see more of his three Mad Max – Fury Road vehicles at his photostream via the link above.

End of the Road

Lego Mad Max Fury Road Buick

There’s a movie out in cinemas at the moment that all the proper Lego Blogs are talking about, so here’s a post-apoc classic Buick from ‘Mad Max – Fury Road’. Yup, we like to stay on top of current events here at TLCB…

It’s (probably) our final MOC of 2015, so it’s somewhat fitting that Tim Inman’s Buick from the latest Mad Max instalment is one of the last vehicles left on earth. There’s more to see of this top-quality build at Tim’s photostream – click here to make the jump and get mad.

Sweet Sixteen

Lego Mad Max War Rig

This insane looking vehicle is – of course – the brutal War Rig from the 2015 movie epic Mad Max – Fury Road.

Built by MOCpages’ Desert752 Kirill the War Rig features a multitude of remotely operated functions and, rather than the real truck’s 6×4 drive train, a full 6×6 system. Plus 6-wheel-drive for the trailer. And 4-wheel-drive for the trailer’s trailer. Yup, this marvellous beast has a 16×16 drivetrain, which has got to be a TLCB first.

Lego Mad Max Fury Road War Rig Truck RC

16×16 is also incredibly effective at squashing TLCB Elves, as many of them discovered today thanks to the delighted Elf at the controls.

You can see more of Desert’s incredible build on MOCpages at the link above, plus you can check the Rig out in action via the video below, which is complete with a suitably ridiculous soundtrack.

Fury Road

Lego Mad Max Fury Road Vicious

Lego versions of the Mad Max – Fury Road vehicles are appearing e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e, but we don’t mind – they are the perfect cars for this little corner of the internet. This one comes from Jin Kei, and it’s one of the key cars from the epic post-apoc movie. Join the madness at the link above.

Making Peace

Lego Mad Max Peacemaker Ripsaw Sariel

This is, quite simply, the most effective Elf-smushing vehicle that has ever graced the halls of TLCB Towers.

It’s Sariel‘s incredible newest creation, taken from the equally incredible Mad Max – Fury Road movie, and it’s one of our favourite cars of the year so far.

Underneath the ruined muscle car bodywork, and above the brilliant suspended track system, sit a pair of LEGO batteries connected to twin LEGO RC buggy motors, each controlled by the superb SBrick third-party bluetooth system.

And that makes the Peacemaker one of the fastest, most agile and most highly manoeuvrable Lego vehicles that this site has ever published. And none of this was good news for our Elves.

You can see more of Sariel’s awesome creation on MOCpages by clicking here, you can read more about the builder through our interviews page here, and you can witness the Peacemaker in action via the epic YouTube video below.

More Madness

Lego Mad Max Fury Road

Following our review of the excellent Manner-Spielzeug Interceptor set from the original 1980s Mad Max movies, we’re back to the 2015 incarnation, with another superb Town-scale recreation from TLCB regular _Tiler. His latest replica is probably the weirdest yet, and you can see more of this and his previous Fury Road vehicles via the link to Flickr above.

Elvenhorse

Lego Elves Mad Max

We think this builder may have taken TLCB Summer Building Competition brief a bit too literally…

A number of competition entries have been Mad Max or post-apoc related, but this is definitely the first to mix the madness with LEGO’s own recently launched ‘Elves’ theme. In case you’re unsure, LEGO’s Elves are nothing like our own. Like, at all.

TLCB Summer Building Competition

TLCB newcomer Lego Warboys‘ mini-figure scale recreation of the ‘Gigahorse’ from Mad Max – Fury Road is almost everything the Elves could want in a vehicle. The ‘Elven’ iteration on the right is… less so.

Lego Mad Max Gigahorse Elves

Oddly though, we think we prefer the pastel coloured flowery version, and it could be the start of a glorious new sub-theme! You can see more of both models by visiting Lego Warboys’ Flickr photostream via the link above.

Doof

Lego Mad Max Doof Wagon

The proliferation of vehicles from the Mad Max – Fury Road movie has slowed in recent weeks, but Flickr’s Matt De Lanoy has awakened the theme with a bang today. You can see more of his brilliant mini-figure recreation of the Doof Wagon at the link above.

Death by Deuce

Lego Mad Max Hot Rod

There seems to be little let-up in the proliferation of Mad Max – Fury Road vehicles within the Lego Community, and we couldn’t be more pleased! Flickr’s _Tiler has added another to his garage – you can see more of it and his previous Mad Max builds at the link above.
