Looking eerily reminiscent of a TLCB Elf, Ed ‘Big Daddy’ Roth’s ‘Rat Fink!’ is something of a legend in hot rodding circles, and he’s quite something to behold in brick form too. Flickr’s Edward Lawrence is the man behind this awesome recreation of the cartoon rat, mounting him atop the most dangerous vehicle known to mankind, the Radio Flyer Wagon. Ingenious cartoon-esque image tomfoolery adds to the magnificence and you can take a closer look at Edward’s photostream via the link!
We have no idea what this robot is or what it does, but seeing as it’s towing the world’s most dangerous vehicle filled with LEGO and it looks a little bit like Futurama’s Fatbot, we’re posting it here. Because we can. It comes from Eero Okkonen of Flickr, it’s been built for a Brickset competition, and there’s more of it to see by clicking here.
Likely the first vehicle of many of our American readers, the Radio Flyer Wagon has been an icon of free-wheeling adventure for over 90 years, making it the cause of more broken bones than probably any other vehicular design in history.
Despite this legendary status the dangerous tub-on-wheels had so-far escaped the attention of Lego builders, today corrected wonderfully by 1saac W of Flickr. 1saac’s inspired choice of pieces have recreated the Radio Flyer Wagon to perfection, from its brake-less axles to its gloriously unstable draw-bar steering. Now let’s go and find a really big hill!
