Beige Bricks

Beige is the colour of, amongst other things, hearing aids, baby sick, boring trousers, and 1980s Volvos. Not exactly an exciting hue. But somehow despite this history (or maybe because of it) beige still looks damn cool in the right setting. A Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is one such example, as demonstrated here by Ben of Flickr and his neat 6(ish) wide Lego version. Head to Ben’s photostream via the link.

Remote Control Rubicon

Fancy a dirty weekend? Then take your LEGO with you! At least, that what ArsMan064 of Eurobricks decided to do in entering a Russian trial/trophy event for remote control LEGO vehicles, claiming first place with his superb Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.

Powered by two Large Power Functions motors, with a Medium motor used for steering, an on-board LiPo battery, bluetooth control via a third-party SBrick, and all-wheel suspension and four-wheel-drive, ArsMan’s Jeep is perfectly suited to getting dirty, and if you’d like to give it a go you can, as he’s made instructions for his design available!

Click the link above to visit the Eurobricks discussion forum for all the photos, a video of the Jeep in action, and the all-important link to building instructions.

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon – Picture Special

Lego Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

This impressively slick creation comes from newcomer Chiho Kim and it was suggested to us by a reader. Built in a similar scale and style to LEGO’s officially licensed Creator sets like the Caterham Seven, Mini Cooper, and Volkswagen Camper, Chiho’s replica of the infamous Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is packed with details.

There are opening doors, a detailed engine under the opening hood, a fully replicated interior and a detachable rear soft top. There’s lots more to see on both Flickr and MOCpages, where you can also find details about how you can help this design become an official LEGO set alongside the examples above.

Lego Technic Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Sheepo

TLCB favourite, Master MOCer and Technic-building legend Sheepo is back! This is his latest creation, a near-perfect working replica of the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.

Powered by two XL motors plus a Medium motor for steering Sheepo’s Wrangler is a serious bit of off-road kit. In addition to the three RC drive motors are a further two, one controlling a 5+R gearbox and another the high/low range gearbox and two and four wheel drive selection with the option of locking differentials.

Such clever engineering gives Sheepo’s Wrangler some pretty decent miniaturised off-road hardware, meaning it’s probably nearly as fun to drive as the real thing. And it’ll get better gas mileage. There’s lots more to see at the Eurobricks forum and on Sheepo’s excellent website, plus you can see the Rubicon in action via the video below.

Raftin’ Rubicon

Lego Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

After several impressively huge and complicated creations we’re going back to basics today with this, Johnni‘s very neat Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, complete with a rigid-inflatable-boat on the roof. Despite its simplicity nice detailing is in abundance, plus it’s yellow – and the Elves like yellow. See more on Flickr via the link above.
