Fall of Saigon

Lego Saigon Street Corner

This beautifully messy street scene entitled ‘Street corner of Saigon’ comes from Flickr’s Know Your Pieces, and it perfectly captures the jumble of detritus found on any number of East Asian street corners, with plastic stools, a broken moped, and a compressor all expertly recreated in Lego form. One fixture of Saigon’s street corners is notably absent, but seeing as the metropolis, now know as Ho Chi Minh City, is today a throughly modern and advanced megacity we won’t give credence to that old stereotype. See more of the way things used to be at Know Your Pieces’ photostream via the link above.

Bella Moto

Lego Vespa

Is there anything prettier than a girl on a Vespa?* Nope. Not unless you’re the new White House Press Secretary (whereby the prettiest thing ever witnessed is President Donald Trump, period). Previous bloggee ZetoVince may not have built a girl to accompany his Vespa, but his Lego recreation of the iconic Italian scooter is absolutely gorgeous. There’s more to see of this beautiful model on Flickr, where you can also vote for it to become an official LEGO set via LEGO Ideas – click the link above to go for a ride.

*We’ve done the research, see here. And here. And here. Blogging is tough sometimes.

And here.

Scooter Shop

Lego Scooter Workshop

After appearing here numerous times over the years with his large scale workshop scenes, Flickr’s Norton74 has decided to build a little smaller with this charming mini-figure scale Vespa workshop, complete with some beautifully detailed tooling. We don’t know much about Italian motorcycles, but if they’re anything like Italian cars those mini-figure mechanics are going to be kept busy. There’s more to see of Norton’s workshop at his photostream – click the link above to book a service.

Piuttosto Motorino

Lego Vespa Scooter

We have a penchant for fast and loud vehicles here at The Lego Car Blog, but we do also like more humble transportation. The motorcycle is the world’s most popular powered vehicle and Italian manufacturer Vespa are one of the most famous and iconic brands in the marketplace. This wonderful replica of their little P200 scooter comes from Lego-building masterminds Avro Brothers, and it could only be more beautiful if there were an attractive Italian girl riding it. There’s more to see on Flickr at the link above, ciao!

Step-Through

Lego Scooter

Scooters are not our usual fare at The Lego Car Blog, but as there are far more on the roads worldwide than cars they should probably appear here more often. This neat Model Team scooter has been built by MOCpages’ Zhan James, and there’s more to see here.

Side Saddle

Lego Scooter

Sometimes we could be accused of focussing only on fast, loud and exotic forms of transport here at The Lego Car Blog. So to redress the balance here’s an elderly Italian couple on a scooter.

Dario Minisini is the builder and you can see more of his charming build at his photostream here.

Officina Super Sprint Picture Special

Lego Vespa Scooter Workshop

We’re basically larger, hairier children here at TLCB Towers, and as such we usually post vehicles with a million horsepower, or guns, or racing stripes. And if possible with all three. Today though we’re posting something surprisingly small*, and possibly even a little elegant – the infamous classic Vespa scooter.

Lego Officina Super Sprint

Flickr’s Norton74 has appeared here several times before, more recently with his beautiful Volkswagen garage. He’s now re-purposed this previous build to replicate his own Officina Super Sprint Vespa Workshop that he owns in real-life, and it’s possibly even more lovely than before. One of his Volkswagen Transporters even makes a re-appearance too.

There’s a whole gallery to enjoy on at Norton74’s photostream, click the link above to take the trip.

Tuk, tuk, tuk, tuk…

Tuk tuk

The cheap and simple to maintain “tuk, tuk” is spreading everywhere today. Especially in Asia, Africa and South America they are thronging the roads of cities transporting both goods and people. Recently, a team of Elves have been using a tuk tuk to haul their Lego finds back to TLCB towers. Fortunately this noisily annoying vehicle was smushed into the carpet by another group, equipped with Sariel’s Liebherr Loader.

Tuk tuks have now made it into space, thanks to Pico van Grootveld’s entry into this year’s Classic Space Pocket Money Contest. His Tequilatron theme might explain why 1980s spacemen were always happy and smiling. Pico has also just published photos of his awesome ORCA MK II gunship. Click this link to his Flickr Photostream to see more of both builds, including the alternative models made from the Tuk tuk’s parts.

Viva Italia!

Vespa-Pascal

Another day in the office and another Elf sits happily munching a yellow Smartie, whilst fending off its envious colleagues with a bit of Technic. It has just returned with this lovely, brick-built Vespa scooter by Pascal (Pasukaru76). Click this link to Flickr for a closer look.

Two’s Company

Lego Space Scooter VespaIt’s a sunny weekend here at TLCB Towers and because we want to go outside we’re going to double-up a post by rolling two two-wheeled finds together and pretending it was planned all along. First up is this spacey Vespa-ish scooter from Karf Oohlu on Flickr, on which the wheels might just be the cleverest things we’ve ever posted.

The second two-wheeled creation comes from fellow Flickr user – and a TLCB newcomer – Buster, who’s built the Segway from hell by combining the aforementioned Presidential wheels with what looks like a tank and an iPod. See more of each vehicle via the links above.
