Mean Machine

Lego Wacky Races Mean Machine

And now here they are! The most daredevil group of daffy drivers to ever whirl their wheels in the Wacky Races. Competing for the title of World’s Wackiest Racer!… Sneaking along last is that Mean Machine with those double dealing do-badders Dick Dastardly and his sidekick, Muttley. And even now they’re up to some dirty trick!

Redfern1950s has completed his brilliant line-up of Wacky Races racers, with – fittingly in last place – the Mean Machine piloted by Dick Dastardly and his canine co-driver. You can see more of this wonderful cartoon contraption via the link above, and you can see the complete starting grid of Wacky Races builds that have featured here at TLCB by clicking here!

Wacky Races!

The Lego Car Blog Elves are easily addicted creatures. Not to any hard substances of course (unless you count when we forget to lock the stationary cupboard and all our glue sticks get eaten), but their various fascinations can become all-consuming. Most of these have been in televisual form, with the Transformers and Mad Max movies being their most recent obsessions, but the winds of favour are fickle and in the last few weeks both the Elves’ previous loves have been supplanted by a deep and almost religious reverence for a 40 year-old cartoon.

Luckily for us we quite like the Elves’ current obsession, which started when Flickr builder Redfern1950s built the Army Surplus Special from the 1970s Hannah-Barbera animated series ‘Wacky Races’ a few weeks ago. Five more Wacky Races creations have since followed, and the Elves have become so fixated on the animated antics of the Wacky Races crew that they can think of little else.

Today therefore, three Elves were borne aloft by their colleagues as heroes of the hunt, as each had returned with a new Wacky Races vehicle to revere. All three are the work of captainsmog of Flickr, and that he’s given them their own album folder suggests that there might be many more to come! There’s more to see of the Captain’s mini-figure scale ‘Mean Machine’, ‘Army Surplus Special’ and ‘Turbo Terrific’ in the aforementioned album via the link above – click the link to make the jump.
