Big Yellow Beaver

Lego Komatsu

This Komatsu PC210LL-10 loves munching on wood.* With a 365 harvester head it can strip a tree of its branches in seconds, enabling the trunk to be neatly stacked on the back of a waiting truck. Flickr’s Mathijs Bongers is the builder and he’s replicated the tracked forest harvester brilliantly in mini-figure scale. See more on Flickr via the link.

*Just like your Mom.

Mini-fig Machinery

Lego Forester Telehandler

Mini-figure machines don’t appear here that often, but if done well Town-scale creations can be a match for creations several times their size. Our Elves found two great examples of top quality mini-figure models on Flickr today. The yellow machine is keko007‘s JCB telehandler, whilst the elaborate red contraption is Mathijs Bongers Komatsu forester. See more of each via on Flickr the links above.

Laying a Log

Lego Komatsu 951

We could put this Komatsu 951 by LegoMathijs to good use in the Elves’ cage room – there are quite a lot of logs to pick up at times. Still, that’s what the office interns are for. There’s more to see of this unusual creation at the link above.

Monster Miner

Lego Komatsu Wheel Loader

This enormous wheel loader was discovered by a member of our Elvish workforce on MOCpages. It’s been built by newcomer Dave MacLeod, and it’s his first creation to be uploaded to the site. This highly detailed model is – almost unbelievably – mini-figure scale, being based on the Komatsu WA1200, the largest loader in the world. It’s therefore a bit big for most Town layouts, being larger than even many of LEGO’s modular buildings, but what a way for a mini-figure to ride around Town! There’s more to see on MOCpages, click the link above if you’re digging it and welcome Dave to the community.

Log Roll

Lego Komatsu 895

This strange looking contraption is a Komatsu 895 harvester, and it’s been built (beautifully we might add) by newcomer LegoMathijs. His recreation of the giant Japanese forwarder features a detailed telescopic boom, cabin and engine, and working suspension with central pivot. There’s more to see on Flickr and at the Eurobricks discussion forum – click the links to swing your axe.

Double Diggers

Lego Komatsu WA 600

Our smelly little workforce has a history with remotely controlled construction machinery. It has in the past been used by individual Elves to exact revenge on colleagues, pre-emptively attack colleagues, and smush other colleagues into the carpet for – as the kids would say, ‘lols‘.

Today’s calm was shattered by the arrival of the creation above, a huge remote controlled Komatsu WA 600 wheeled loader by MOCpages’ Jorge Garcia. And then things got much worse.

Another Elf, successful after a day’s MOC hunting, returned with the MOC below, Limitless Bricks‘ (previously Ultimate Design Bricks) remote controlled Liebherr LR 634 tracked loader, and thus a sort of Lego Robot Wars ensued.

Things are mostly back to normal now, and the two creations have been placed in the care of TLCB office – much to the annoyance of the Elves. Still, we wouldn’t dream of using such brilliant machines in a battle to the death. But nevertheless we do have a very busy afternoon of remote controlled ‘evaluation’ planned, so we’ll sign off now…

Can You Dig It?

Komatsu-500w

This massive earthmover is described as a “Super Dozer” on its manufacturers website. The real-life version has a giant, 90 cubic yard blade, enough to carry all of the TLCB Elves and a few of their friends. Jorge Garcia’s Lego version is no less impressive. This yellow Technic monster contains 5 motors, a linear actuator and a plethora of pneumatics to make its functions work. All of this is covered with a realistic version of the D575’s bodywork and travels on some brilliant custom-built tracks, based on a design by mahjqa. You can dig it by clicking this link to the D575’s MOCpages listing.
