Classic Americana

Lego Christine Plymouth Fury

The relentless pace of uploads by Flickr’s de-marco continues, with his two latest builds delightful slices of classic Americana. Above is a lovely 6-wide Plymouth Fury, before things turned strange courtesy of a Stephen King novel, whilst below is a neat 1960s police car in a rare blue-over-yellow paint scheme. there’s more to see at de-marco’s photostream via the link above, where there are also instructions for each model available!

Size Isn’t Everything

Lego Micro-scale Vehicles

At least, that’s what your Mom told this TLCB writer. It’s a philosophy adopted by Flickr’s LEGO 7 too, who has constructed this charming micro-scale scene in which none of the vehicles are more than two studs in width. They’re all instantly identifiable though, with a taxi, police car, excavator, cement truck, ambulance, semi truck, coupe and bus all recreated brilliantly in miniature and placed within a clever modular roadway. There’s lots more to see of all the vehicles plus the neatly designed base at LEGO 7’s photostream – click the link above to check it out.

To Protect and Serve

Lego Technic Police Car

With The Lego Car Blog’s home nation victim of a terror attack this week we’re acknowledging the incredible work that our emergency services perform in the face of horrific acts of violence. NHS paramedics, doctors, nurses, cleaners and caterers, bomb disposal teams, the Greater Manchester Police, and of course the people of Manchester, demonstrated the very best of British society in the aftermath of the May 22nd attack.

Our police officers don’t get to drive big RWD V8-engined sedans, although their fast-response BMW, Audi and Volvo diesels look quite fun, but they’re the backbone of the US and Australian forces’ fleets.

Big, wallowing, and not actually that fast, RWD V8 sedans really aren’t suited to European policing, but that doesn’t stop them being – at least to our eyes – quite cool.

This neat generic Police Interceptor comes from previous bloggee pipasseyoyo, and it features the obligatory V8 engine hooked up to a four-speed gearbox, rear-wheel-drive, working suspension and steering, opening hood, trunk and doors, and a deployable spike-strip to apprehend the bad guys.

There’s more of pipasseyoyo’s Technic Police Interceptor to see at his Brickshelf album via the link above, and if you’re reading this and represent one of the emergency services, wherever you are; thank you.

Car Chases…

Lego Transformers

…are about to get a lot more interesting! This ingenious Transformer comes from Flickr’s RGB900 and looks killer in both car and robot modes. Lucky the police have got a few tricks up their sleeves too, with the result likely to be a giant robot death match at the end of every car chase. The Elves, connoisseurs of ‘World Wildest Police Chase’ type programmes (and with a well-documented love of Transformers), are very excited.

There’s more to see of each of RGB’s builds at his Flickr photostream, which includes photos of the seriously clever transformation process used to turn a 6-wide sports car into bipedal robot. Click the link above to make the jump to the full gallery.

Tears in the Rain

Spinner

This beautifully built and photographed Spinner police car is the work of Tyler (legohaulic) on Flickr. To be honest, you’ve probably seen it already. By the time our Elves spotted it, this model had already accumulated over 160 likes and 1,200 views, within a few hours of it being posted. Click on the link and “enhance 224 by 176” to see the details.*

*Deckard didn’t have “notes” on his version of Flickr either.

‘It’s Got a Cop Motor…’

Lego Dodge Monaco Blues Brothers

It’s been a while since we featured one of your suggestions; this one was discovered by one of our readers on the Lego Ideas creation sharing platform. It’s a recreation of the 1976 Dodge Monaco from the 1980 film ‘Blues Brothers’ by newcomer eini1971, and you can see more at the link.

Cum On Feel the Noize

Lego Bluemobile Dodge Monaco

The Lego Car Blog Elves are – despite their small size – quite fantastically noisy creatures. Thus they were delighted to find two noisy creations today, and then almost immediately enraged to find that LEGO bricks produce no noise at all, even when they’re shaped as if they do.

The first of their finds (above) comes from Flickr’s Nik J Dort, who has recreated the iconic ex-police Dodge Monaco complete with roof-speaker from the 1980 film ‘Blues Brothers’, which until recently held the record for the highest number of vehicles destroyed in a movie. Watching this destruction has placated the Elves somewhat.

Their second find comes from a builder suggested to us by a reader, LEGO Will, but sadly from a movie the Elves are unable to watch yet as they are still banned from the local cinema. Will’s mini-figure scale recreation of the ‘Doof Wagon’ from the ridiculous (and brilliant) 2015 film ‘Mad Max – Fury Road’ can be found on Flickr too – click the link above for all the pictures.

The Last Law in a World Gone Out of Control…

Lego Mad Max Ford Falcon Interceptor

…Pray that he’s out there somewhere.

Mad Max Fury Road is currently setting movie screens alight, but it all began way back in 1979. Ralph Savelsberg has added the Ford Falcon Interceptor from the film that started it all to his movie cars catalogue. There’s more to see on Flickr – click the link above and Get Mad.

Cute Cops

Lego Daihatsu Mira Gino

We love Japan. It’s home to the newest technology, some of the world’s greatest cars, Takeshi’s Castle, and even a giant city-destroying lizard.

But for every amazing thing to come from Japan’s industrious population something completely perplexing will emerge too. Pokemon, used underwear vending machines (yes, really), and the Daihatsu Mira Gino all probably fit into this category. It’s the Gino we’re featuring here today, looking like a sort of tragic copy of an original Mini, and… er, resplendent in Japanese Police livery.

We Googled the Mira Gino and luckily for the Japanese cops we didn’t find one image of it in crime-fighting form, so Seiji N‘s Lego recreation is hopefully only a work of fiction. But it does look kinda cute…

You can see more of Seiji N’s Daihatsu Mira Gino police car at his Flickr photostream – click the link above to make the trip.

Spinner

Lego Blade Runner Spinner

Syd Mead’s ‘Spinner’ police car from the movie Blade Runner has become one of the most influential sci-fi designs of all time, with the basic premise used in countless films since its first appearance way back in 1982. The Spinner also makes a fine subject to recreate from Lego, and Flickr’s -derjoe- has done it superbly. You can see more of his mini-figure Spinner via the link above.

Russian Patrol

Russian Patrol

Fresh from our Flickr-feed: something from Russia. We’ve blogged a few East-European cars recently, but we haven’t seen a police car yet. This detailed car which could easily be found in LEGOland is instantly recognizable as a Lada. The fig is impressive, too. Made by Mad Physicist (Ralph S), see more of this car at Flickr.

Copper and the Bandit

Lego Police Car

You’re nicked! (Do they say that in America?)

Uh oh, looks like the Bandit is about to spend some time holding on to his soap very carefully. _lichtblau_‘s 1975 Pontiac and Plymouth Gran Fury police cruiser meet for this roadside shot on Flickr.
