Besides Megan Fox, TLCB Elves’ greatest televisual delight is ‘Mad Max – Fury Road’. Although they haven’t seen ‘Death Race’ yet.
The combination of wild vehicle chases and considerable violence ticks all the Elves’ boxes, albeit there are only two (wild vehicle chases and considerable violence).
Recreating the mechanised mayhem from Mad Max in miniature is the aptly-named iluvkillerobots of Flickr, who is here making their TLCB debut with suite of ‘Fury Road’ vehicles.
Despite their small size, all are immediately recognisable as their movie-star counterparts, and include the incredible ‘War Rig’ (top), the tracked Howe & Howe Ripsaw ‘Peacemaker’ (middle), and the ‘People Eaters Limousine’ (below).
There’s more to see of all killerobots’ creations at his ‘Fury Road’ album on Flickr. Click the link above to join the Elves imagining post-apoc vehicle chases and considerable violence. Only smaller.
This TLCB Writer stepped into the office this morning to find a scene from a horror film.
Well, if you’re an Elf at least. For humans it just looked like someone had dealt with a rodent problem via one of those comedy mallets. Squashed Elves were everywhere; on the floor, against the walls, even on top of shoes left in the corridor. But what could cause such total Elven carnage?
The answer was to be found in the office where – lying crashed on its side – a tracked buggy lay dormant.
Marxpek’s Technic recreation of the Howe & Howe Ripsaw EV1 had caught and smushed almost every single Elf on the floor of TLCB Towers, methodically running them down until it finally overturned in the office, whereupon the Elf at the controls had fled into the night.
Powered by eight Buggy Motors and fourBuWizz Bluetooth control bricks, we have never featured a creation as powerful as this one. Ever.
A trick suspension and a track tensioning system allow that ludicrous power to be deployed on any surface, making Marxpek’s Ripsaw the most capable off-road Lego creation yet.
The Elf responsible for last night’s mass extinction attempt will be back for a meal token later, giving us some time to patch up the wounded. In the meantime you can check out more about this incredible machine at the Eurobricks forum here, and you can get an idea of how it managed to dispatch so many Elves last night in the video below.
