Range Rozzer

Range Rovers aren’t just for rich London types. Well they are now, but back when the original was around even the police used them. This neat Speed Champions style recreation of a classic police Ranger Rover (in Manchester police livery) comes from TLCB favourite Jonathan Elliott and there’s more to see at his photostream via the link above.

Perfect 10

Lego Town Cars

Awarded a meal-token for every find, one of our Elves is about to get very fat. These ten brilliant Town-scale off-road vehicles are the work of just one builder. Pixel Fox owns the mind (and hands) behind them, and he’s done a simply stupendous job of recreating some of the world’s best known off-roaders in mini-figure scale, as well as building a delightful scene for each one to reside within.

Above, clockwise from top left, are a film-set Hummer H1, South African Volkswagen Syncro, beach-bound Jeep Wrangler TJ and a forestry Mercedes-Benz Unimog 406.

Next are two of the world’s most prolific 4x4s, the iconic Land Cruiser J70 (left) complete with an adorable brick-built rhino, and the legendary Land Rover Defender 90 (right).

The final set of instantly recognisable off-road vehicles is made up of a Mercedes G-Wagon, tragically pictured  on red-carpet duty, a superb Range Rover Series 1 going hunting, a lifted Jeep Cherokee XJ, and a Dakar-spec BMW X5.

Each creation is wonderful in its own right, and you can see more of all ten mini-figure builds at Pixel Fox’s Flickr album by clicking here, whilst we begin feeding a very deserving TLCB Elf!

Range Rover Sport

Lego Range Rover SportA very familiar sight in UK roads (usually in the ‘Audi’ position; three feet from your rear bumper on the motorway), the Range Rover Sport has been a huge success for Land Rover. Ralph Savelsberg recreates the modern icon in its popular ‘drug-dealer’ white. You can see the full gallery on Flickr, and you can see it in the brick – along with many of Ralph’s other vehicles – at the Great Western Lego Show this October.

This Is How We Do It

Lego Tiny TurbosWe don’t often feature Tiny Turbo style creations here at The Lego Car Blog. This is mainly because most have all the design merit and individuality of a 1970s car park. DeTomaso Pantera however, shows how it should be done, with simple but excellent renditions of a Range Rover in Camel Trophy spec, and a Cadillac Fleetwood, amongst many others. See his full line-up on Flickr or MOCpages.

The British Icon

Lego Range Rover

The Elves are still beavering away, bringing us the best creations from around the world. Today this Technic Range Rover by Rabbitdesign MB caught their attention, with the neat combo of loads of great functions and classy looks, he’s nailed it. This week marks the end of mark 3 Range Rover production, as the all new mark 4 reaches showrooms. Hopefully it won’t be long before we see the new version in Lego too. See more on MOCpages via the link above.
