Not a Car

Lego Medieval Ship

We’re not sure what’s got into the Elves but they seem to like boats at the moment. No matter, because this medieval ship by Flickr’s Gabriel Thomson is gorgeous, especially the clever brick-built hull. See more at Gabriel’s photostream by clicking here, whilst we issue a ‘find a bloody car you idiots’ directive…

The Great Caribbean Battle

Lego Pirate Ships

From 1989 to 1993 the waters of the Caribbean Sea were a turbulent place to sail. A battle was raging, between a band of pirates led by the blood-thirsty one-legged, one-handed and one-eyed Captain Redbeard (making him something of a Monty Python sketch), and Governor Broadside’s Imperial Soldiers (later the Imperial Guard) whose mighty forts and fleet fought piratical activity across the region.

Previous bloggee Versteinert MOC has captured the time brilliantly, with this ingenious homage to LEGO’s classic Pirates line. Recreated in cutesy-sort-of-mini-figure scale are three of the theme’s greatest sets, 6285 Black Seas Barracuda, 6286 Skull’s Eye Schooner, and 6274 Caribbean Clipper, all fighting it out in what looks like an outdoor swimming pool.

There’s much more to see of the miniaturised nautical battle at Versteinert’s Flickr album – pick a side and join the fight via the link!

Secrets of the Abyss

Lego Pirate Ship Kraken

This is not a car. But it is a pirate ship being attacked by a gigantic sea monster, and that’s good enough for us. W Navarre owns the mind behind it and there’s more to see of this terrifying encounter on Flickr.

You Don’t Frighten Us English Pig-Dogs!

Lego Galleon Battle

I don’t wanna talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food-trough wiper! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries!

Much like the aforementioned medieval altercation, it looks like the French have got the better of us English-types in Sebeus I‘s galleon battle. There’s more to see of this beautifully epic scene on Flickr – click the link above to join the fray.

Not a Car…

Lego Galleon

…but we rather like ships and we have control of TLCB keyboard. This beautiful 22-gun light frigate comes from previous bloggee and shipbuilding master Sebeus I. Built entirely from Lego, save for the rigging and sails, and with a wonderfully detailed mini-figure scale interior, Sebeus’s ‘Raging Fire’ galleon is definitely worth a closer look, even if you’re only here for the cars. You can see the full gallery of images via both MOCpages and Flickr – click the links to climb aboard.

The Eternal Wanderer

flying-dutchman

The Flying Dutchman is a ship that has been condemned to wander the oceans for all eternity. It’s origins lie centuries ago and it has been celebrated in plays, films and operas. Now it has been created in Lego bricks too.

This particular version has been built by W. Navarre on Flickr. The hull looks just as worn and battered as wooden ship should look like after years at sea.  It also features a nice balcony for the captain at the stern.  Click the link in the text to see the ragged, brick-built sails in more detail and hope this never crosses your bows.

Shiptember

Lego Privateer Oliver Cromwell ship

It’s Shiptember, one of the online Lego Community’s many tenuously-titled bandwagons, and we’re jumping aboard! This gorgeous build is a 3ft long mini-figure scale replica of the 1776 ten-gun privateer ‘Oliver Cromwell’. It’s been built by  redmondej of Flickr aka Fred Miracle of MOCpages, and there lots more to see at his photostream and MOCpage. There’s may be a chance that we’ve misunderstood ‘Shiptember’…

Little Wonders

Lego 1946 Alfa Romeo 6C Freccia d'Oro

You don’t need ten thousand bricks to appear on The Lego Car Blog. Around one hundred is plenty, as proven by Flickr’s Johnni with the lovely 1946 Alfa Romeo 6C Freccia d’ora pictured above, and Robert4168 with his superbly inventive micro-scale ‘Buccaneer’s Dread’ pirate ship. See more of each via the links.

Revenge!

Lego Galleon Revenge 1577

This, simply put, is probably the best Lego creation you will see this year.

It’s the work of MaydayArtist, and it’s a perfect scale-replica of the 1577 English Warship ‘Revenge’ that fought (and defeated) the Spanish Armada that was 9 months in the making. It’s all Lego apart from the sails and rigging and was built with the help of a wooden model ship-builder.

The level of detail is breathtakingly real so we’ve included an extra image in this blog post, but you really need to see the close up shots on the Eurobricks’ Pirate forum here, it’s a new benchmark in Lego shipbuilding. For our French readers, the ‘Revenge’ will also be shown at the ‘Festibriques’ show in Paris this year.
