Occasionally we dip into the news here at TLCB, and today is one such day. Speculation has been rife as to who will join Chris Evans for the re-launched BBC Top Gear later this year, from models to motorbike racers the press seem to have a new ‘confirmed’ co-host every other week.
Well now it’s our turn. It’s Matt Le Blanc. Yes the actor from Episodes, Joey from Friends, and the fastest Star In a Reasonably Priced Car is set to join the show as co-host this year. You heard it here first!* If we’re right (we’ve even beaten the BBC themselves to this…) you can expect to read this story in the major news outlets very soon.

This year has seen a new month added to Lego builders’ calendars on Flickr: SHIPtember. A SHIP is a Seriously Huge Investment in Parts and is typically over 100 studs in length. Builders from all over the world have been posting photos of both WIPs and completed projects, which are generally long and thin. Dover (Drew) has chosen to take a sideways look at the theme, literally, and produced this 101 stud wide Bubble Fighter.
The spacecraft is based on one flown by Matt LeBlanc in the 1998 film of “Lost in Space“. It has a pistol grip handle to hold when swooshing it and rotating wings too. There’s also some nice parts usage, with the Christmas decoration cockpit and especially the real teeth in the markings on the wings. The Elf who discovered this MOC is still a bit upset by the big, pointy fangs. Please don’t be scared to check more photos of this colourful spacecraft by clicking this link to its Flickr page.
