I’m a Lumberjack and I’m OK

Lego Technic KAMAZ 43118 Timber Truck RC

This is a KAMAZ 43118 timber truck, but we just couldn’t bring ourselves to use that awful Ke$ha ‘Timber’ song for the title, so here are some far more meaningful lyrics. Now that’s out the way, this is a KAMAZ 43118 timber truck, and it’s one of the most fiendishly complicated looking Technic creations that the Elves have found in some time.

Built by ArsMan064 there are no less than seven Power Functions motors, plus three IR receivers, controlling the drive, steering, gearbox, locking differentials, outriggers, rotating two-stage boom, and of course a Technic claw for manipulating felled trees. Well, sticks, but still.

There’s also working suspension, LED lighting, and it really can pick up logs and load them onto the rear. There are more images plus a video of the clever crane arm in action at the Eurobricks forum – click the link above to yell Timber. Damnit.

You Don’t Frighten Us English Pig-Dogs!

Lego Galleon Battle

I don’t wanna talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food-trough wiper! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries!

Much like the aforementioned medieval altercation, it looks like the French have got the better of us English-types in Sebeus I‘s galleon battle. There’s more to see of this beautifully epic scene on Flickr – click the link above to join the fray.

And Now For Something Completely Different…

Silly Walks

At The Lego Car Blog we are, naturally, devoted petrolheads and Lego builders. We rarely walk anywhere, including from our desks to the executive Jacuzzi at the end of the day, preferring to zoom across the floor on our office chairs. Walking is what the Elves are for. This writer took 39 steps out of the library recently but that was unusual. TLCB writers can never ever use the excuse that they are late for work because their walk has become rather sillier recently. However, Andy Price has recreated one of our favourite Monty Python sketches in Lego and we thought that we would share it with our readers. You can view his vignette on MOCpages by clicking this link.

We did think that the Elves were trying out silly walks, after they’d seen the video of the sketch. Then we realised that it’s just how they walk all of the time.
