Recovering the Satellites*

This wonderful 1971 LAPD Plymouth Satellite police car was discovered by one of our Elves on Flickr. It comes from regular bloggee Jonathan Elliott, whose Speed Champions scale models are beautifully diversified from the usual Ferraris and Lamborghinis that dominate the genre. Details and presentation are top-drawer and there’s more to see of this, and Jonathan’s other brilliant Speed Champions style builds, at his photostream here.

World’s Blankiest Blank!

Lego Police Helicopter

The Lego Car Blog Elves have television viewing habits roughly equivalent to a 6 year old child. Or an American adult (sorry America). Programmes along the lines of ‘World’s Biggest Police Crashes!!’ are their favourites, which always amuse us here at TLCB Towers.

Judging by these shows it seems in America the favoured police method to stop a criminal scumbag is to ram him into a gas station / school bus / innocent bystander. This isn’t really the European way, which is to tail the miscreant until the police helicopter arrives, and then just wait for the would-be-escapee to get bored and give up.

Quite what the US Police actually do with their choppers is a mystery to us, but nevertheless the mini-fig cops in Andrew Somer‘s Town have got one for whatever it is they do, and you can see more of his mini-figure scale LAPD AS350 helicopter at the link.
