Furry Road

Don’t worry, we’re not referring to one of your Mom’s old movies.

TLCB Elves are grumpy today. Despite a slew of finds they missed this one, which we instead saw on The Brothers Brick. And they love Mad Max. We’re not sure they follow the plot, but stuff explodes quite regularly and that seems to please them.

Anyway, those of you with a keener eye will have noticed that something is amiss with Michael Kanemoto‘s rendition of the ‘V8 Interceptor’ from the movie, what with it being red and yellow and driven by a cartoon dog.

That’s because Michael’s ‘V8 Interceptor’ is part of a wider ‘Fab Max’ collaboration, mixing LEGO’s primary-coloured 1980s Fabuland theme with George Miller’s post-apocalyptic road movie, and in doing so creating a desolate wasteland inhabited by cute (but violent) anthropomorphic critters. Kinda like TLCB Towers.

Complete with officer Max “Bark”-tansky of the Fab Force Patrol there’s more to see of Micheal’s ‘Fab Max V8 Interceptor’ via the link above (plus you can also find the original black version of the car which is frankly boring by comparison), and – if you’re as in to this theme as we are – you can see another ‘Fab Max – Furry Road’ creation blogged at TLCB by clicking here.

Primary-Palleted-Post-Apocalyptic-Paradise

Not our title, but the words of TLCB debutant Blair Archer (aka Slick_Bricks), who has taken Fabuland’s well-documented descent into violence and chaos to its ultimate conclusion. It’s enough to make you lose your head.

Slick’s ‘Doom Buggy’, part of a wider ‘Fab Max – Furry Road’ initiative, equips ‘I am the Walrus’ and his crew of cut-throat critters with a variety of weaponry, not least a tailgate-mounted guillotine for the removal of heads whilst on the road. Makes sense to us.

Head to Slick’s photostream via the link above for all the imagery. Goo goo g’joob*.

*If you don’t know what we’re on about, click these words. Which probably won’t help at all.

To the Supermarket!

The way things are going at the moment you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s the end of civilisation as we know it. What’s that? It is? OK, well we’ll have one of these then please.

Built by Flickr’s Eero Okkonen, and very much inspired by ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, this post-apoc hot rod is just the sort of vehicle we need to survive a trip to the supermarket. The spiky wedge arrangement on the front looks perfect for pushing weaker members of society aside, whilst the counterbalanced pole thingy mounted on the rear would allow us to swoop down and steal toilet paper from right out of rival shoppers’ trollies.

Head to Eero’s photostream via the link above to see more, but remember we saw it first!

Mad Collab

The Future Belongs to the Mad. Especially when they collaborate. 2015’s ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ thundered into cinemas to surprising critical acclaim. Directed my George Miller (he of Happy Feet fame!), ‘Fury Road’ followed the terribly-named ‘Mad Max: Beyond the Thunderdome’ film released a full three decades previously, and it was bloody brilliant!

It’s not often that TLCB Staff and TLCB Elves are in agreement, but this is a movie that brought harmony between TLCB’s human overlords and its irritating mythical workforce. Until the little turds started reenacting scenes from the film in the corridors of TLCB Towers at least.

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ starred many incredible vehicles, all of which were build for real, and many of these have been recreated in Lego form over the past five years (you can use the search function to find those that have appeared here). However, despite only appearing briefly in the third Mad Max instalment, it’s the V8 Interceptor that has endured as the franchise’s most iconic car.

Based on a 1970s Ford Falcon XB GT Hardtop, the V8 Interceptor appeared in all three movies, and is arguably more associated with the Mad Max story than the fleshy meatbag/s that drove it. This is the version of the Interceptor from the final (for now) film, and it’s been created through the collaboration of builders Mikhail Biktimirov, FX6000, and photographer Nikolay Gamurar.

With remote control drive and steering, working independent front and solid-axle rear suspension, and opening doors and hood, Mikhail, FX6000 and Nikolay’s beautifully presented V8 Interceptor is definitely worth a closer look. FX6000 has also made building instructions available too, should you wish to pretend your kitchen floor is post-apocalyptic wasteland and reenact scenes from the movies.

The Elves will certainly be doing that, so whilst we keep a careful eye on proceedings you can see more of Mikhail, FX6000 and Nikolay’s brilliant Mad Max V8 Interceptor collaboration at the Eurobricks discussion forum by clicking here.

Doof!

‘Mad Max, Fury Road’ certainly had some pretty mad vehicles. The maddest of all was probably this, the gloriously unhinged ‘Doof Wagon’. Essentially a military truck converted into a rolling sound stage complete with a flame-throwing guitarist, the ‘Doof Wagon’ was sort of like the drum guy on a viking longboat, boosting morale via much noise and considerable pointlessness.

Previous bloggee Nicola Stocchi has recreated the wheeled tinnitus machine superbly in Lego, and has even made instructions available should you wish to recreate your own desert chase scene from the movie. Head to Walmart carpark, drop your windows and turn it up via the link above, plus you can check out Nicola’s past ‘Mad Max, Fury Road’ builds to appear at TLCB here.

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…

…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.

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.
