Here’s a Fabuland bird riding a rocket launcher-equipped motorcycle. Because, well.. it’s a Fabuland bird riding a rocket launcher-equipped motorcycle, and no further reasons are required.
The fun festival of all things Lego, sci-fi and car-like that is Febrovery has started over on Flickr. These mash-ups of parts and stickers from LEGO’s Disney “Cars” license and old space themes from Frost really caught our eye. The pair of bonnets (hoods for American readers), wrapped around the rocket on the M:Tron design, are particularly good bit of NPU.
The group is already filling up with a wide variety of eccentric and sometimes useful looking vehicles from a wide variety of builders, many of whom are TLCB regulars. Click this link to the group to find out what’s going on.
The Elves were delighted to find this Lego version of a 1970’s Matchbox K111 Rocket Launcher on MOCpages. Their tiny, claw-like fingers were soon opening up all of its various hatches and doors to fiddle with the working features, and missiles quickly started flying from the hidden launcher in the back of the truck. It’s all fun and games until some Elf loses an eye, so Andy L’s vehicle was swiftly confiscated.
The TLCB staff appreciated the HoG steering, via the spare tyre on the back and the technical achievement of making the missile launcher pop out of the truck. It also reminded us of childhood days, wearing flares and tank-tops, and trying to fit Lego cars down a Streakloop. You can enjoy the nostalgia and see more of the working features at the K111’s MOCpages listing by clicking the link.
