Another One Bites the Dust (Cart)

Lego Post-Apoc Garbage Truck

When the Zombie Apocalypse arrives which – according to that guy stashing canned food in his shed – it will, you’re gonna want a vehicle like this. With a roof-mounted machine gun, a spiky bumper, and – of course – a garbage compacter to dispose of those annoying zombie corpses, this fortified garbage truck by Flickr’s Guy Smiley looks just the ticket for post-apoc survival. Take out the trash via the link above.

Post-Apoc-Chop

Lego Post-Apoc Motorcycle

The Lego Car Blog Elves love post-apocalyptic violence. Possibly because they secretly harbour thoughts of a victorious Elven uprising that results in a brutal Elf-ruled dystopia. For now though thankfully these dreams only manifest themselves when they watch Mad Max films and an Elf gets run over by a colleague riding the wheeled mop-bucket.

This particular TLCB writer finds the choice of transportation in the aforementioned films an odd one though. Always hugely over-powered, flame-spitting and gloriously thirsty, post-apoc vehicles seem completely opposed to what you would actually want in a world short on gas and spare parts. The perfect post-apoc vehicle is surely a Toyota Prius, Nissan Leaf or Honda Insight. Reliable, efficient, and quiet.

And boring. Which is why movies shun their practicalities in favour of vehicles like this one. It’s a post-apoc chopper by Flickr’s Stephan Johnsson, and it fits the over-powered, flame-spitting and gloriously thirsty category perfectly. Entitled ‘Wasteland Roamer’ Stephan’s creation is beautifully constructed and there’s more to see at his phtostream – click the link above to fire it up.

Colouring the Apocalypse

Karf Apoc

There seems to be a convention that following any variety of apocalypse (atomic, global warming, asteroid impact, alien invasion, zombie outbreak, massive Elf-fight, etc..), the overall decor will be rather drab. Tones of brown, black and grey will predominate, with the occasional beige camper van. Fortunately Flickr’s Karf Oohlu has decided to cheer everyone up with a pair of brightly coloured post-apoc vehicles. Click this link to his Photostream to enter his weird world.

It’s a Hard Knock Life

Lego Mad Max Post-Apoc School Bus

If the Elves went to school, this is what they’d ride in. This would be to ensure the safety of the community, but we have a feeling that they would love it too. Suggested by a reader, you can see more of James Cox’s post-apoc Mad Max-esque school (of hard knocks) bus on Flickr.

Today’s second Mad Max creation comes from Flickr’s Doctor Mobius for the LUGNuts ‘100 Way to Win’ challenge, and it’s… er, we’re not entirely sure. But we’ll trust him. He’s a doctor. See more here.

Maximum Madness

Lego Mad Max Cars

There have been three Mad Max movies to date, and with the latest re-ignition of the franchise promising a few more films to come our Elven workforce, whose second love after Megan Fox in Transformers is post-apocalyptic violence, are very excited. The Elf that discovered this photo is something of a hero amongst its colleagues today then, and it has also earned itself three meal tokens. We have seen a couple of these builds from Flickr’s Tim Inman aka rabidnovaracer before, but they look damn cool together don’t they? You can see more of his three Mad Max – Fury Road vehicles at his photostream via the link above.

Bone Plough

Lego Post-Apoc Truck

‘Boning’ and ‘Ploughing’ are both likely to bring up some interesting Google search results, but such is our maturity you won’t find any mention of that here, no sir. Anyway, this bone-driven post-apoc ploughing pick-up was found by one of our Elves on Flickr, it’s been built by nurunaunanai, and there’s more to see at the link above.

End of the Road

Lego Mad Max Fury Road Buick

There’s a movie out in cinemas at the moment that all the proper Lego Blogs are talking about, so here’s a post-apoc classic Buick from ‘Mad Max – Fury Road’. Yup, we like to stay on top of current events here at TLCB…

It’s (probably) our final MOC of 2015, so it’s somewhat fitting that Tim Inman’s Buick from the latest Mad Max instalment is one of the last vehicles left on earth. There’s more to see of this top-quality build at Tim’s photostream – click here to make the jump and get mad.

The Maximum Force of the Future

Lego technic Mad Max V8 Interceptor

TLCB Elves only like two types of movies; those with robots, explosions and car chases, and those with Megan Fox in. Handily the Transformers franchise provides them with all of this, but Mad Max is a fairly close second, despite the Megan Fox shaped hole in it.

We haven’t let them watch the newest addition to the saga yet (the Elves are banned from our local cinema due a series of unfortunate incidents), but the late ’70s original and its ’80s sequel are regular fodder for the old TV/VHS combo situated in their cage room. But only once they’ve brought a Mad Max creation back for us to blog of course.

Today one Elf has been fed and lots more are happily cheering and whooping at the TV downstairs, because this most excellent Mad Max creation was brought into the office.

Hailing from the early original movies, Paave’s V8 Interceptor ‘Pursuit Special’ features Buggy Motor propulsion, a servo for steering, an on-board Li-Po battery, working suspension, and a whirling supercharger pulley.

There’s more to see of his brilliant creation on both MOCpages and Eurobricks – click the links to make the jump.

Fury Road

Lego Mad Max Fury Road Vicious

Lego versions of the Mad Max – Fury Road vehicles are appearing e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e, but we don’t mind – they are the perfect cars for this little corner of the internet. This one comes from Jin Kei, and it’s one of the key cars from the epic post-apoc movie. Join the madness at the link above.

Making Peace

Lego Mad Max Peacemaker Ripsaw Sariel

This is, quite simply, the most effective Elf-smushing vehicle that has ever graced the halls of TLCB Towers.

It’s Sariel‘s incredible newest creation, taken from the equally incredible Mad Max – Fury Road movie, and it’s one of our favourite cars of the year so far.

Underneath the ruined muscle car bodywork, and above the brilliant suspended track system, sit a pair of LEGO batteries connected to twin LEGO RC buggy motors, each controlled by the superb SBrick third-party bluetooth system.

And that makes the Peacemaker one of the fastest, most agile and most highly manoeuvrable Lego vehicles that this site has ever published. And none of this was good news for our Elves.

You can see more of Sariel’s awesome creation on MOCpages by clicking here, you can read more about the builder through our interviews page here, and you can witness the Peacemaker in action via the epic YouTube video below.

Red in the Rearview

Lego Mad Max 2 Road Warrior

There are a few vehicles that you don’t want to see looming in your rearview mirror. If you’re Mad Max, the first of today’s two creations is one of them; the lead chase car in Mad Max 2 ‘The Road Warrior’.

As it turns out, it doesn’t end well for the pink-mowhawked maniac riding in the convertible truck, but Max doesn’t fare much better either. This excellent mini-figure version of the car from the 1981 movie comes from TLCB regular _Tiler, and there’s more to see at his Flickr Photostream.

Today’s second creation is a from a brand that we’re all used to seeing in our rearview mirror, two feet from our rear bumper, being driven by a sunglasses-wearing douchebag who really must get to that next meeting asap.

Yes, Audi have become the manufacturer of choice for tailgating muppets everywhere, but there was a time when Audi’s class of driver was altogether different. Coincidentally it was back in the ’80s when Max was being terrorised by the vehicle above, and Audi stood for understated excellence.

It was the car below that really put the brand on the map, and – unfortunately – went a long way in adding Audi to the buying lists of the aforementioned clientele. It is of course the legendary early ’80s quattro with a small ‘q’. This neat Lego version has been built by Ben, and is available to view on Flickr.

Mad Moves

Lego Mad Max RV Truck

This gloriously nuts Mad Max-esque RV/Truck/Armoured Car, entitled ‘Clan’s Moving House’, was discovered by a delighted TLCB Elf on Flickr today. It’s been built by Luis Baixinho and it looks like the perfect vehicle to make it through any one of the variety of apocalyptic events that the weird guy on the outskirts of town hoarding canned food and ammunition thinks is imminent. Get prepared on Flickr via the link above!

More Madness

Lego Mad Max Fury Road

Following our review of the excellent Manner-Spielzeug Interceptor set from the original 1980s Mad Max movies, we’re back to the 2015 incarnation, with another superb Town-scale recreation from TLCB regular _Tiler. His latest replica is probably the weirdest yet, and you can see more of this and his previous Fury Road vehicles via the link to Flickr above.

Elvenhorse

Lego Elves Mad Max

We think this builder may have taken TLCB Summer Building Competition brief a bit too literally…

A number of competition entries have been Mad Max or post-apoc related, but this is definitely the first to mix the madness with LEGO’s own recently launched ‘Elves’ theme. In case you’re unsure, LEGO’s Elves are nothing like our own. Like, at all.

TLCB Summer Building Competition

TLCB newcomer Lego Warboys‘ mini-figure scale recreation of the ‘Gigahorse’ from Mad Max – Fury Road is almost everything the Elves could want in a vehicle. The ‘Elven’ iteration on the right is… less so.

Lego Mad Max Gigahorse Elves

Oddly though, we think we prefer the pastel coloured flowery version, and it could be the start of a glorious new sub-theme! You can see more of both models by visiting Lego Warboys’ Flickr photostream via the link above.

Doof

Lego Mad Max Doof Wagon

The proliferation of vehicles from the Mad Max – Fury Road movie has slowed in recent weeks, but Flickr’s Matt De Lanoy has awakened the theme with a bang today. You can see more of his brilliant mini-figure recreation of the Doof Wagon at the link above.
