Sci-Friday

Lego Flying Boat

The Lego Car Blog Elves are clearly in a spacey mood today, as we have no less than three sci-fi creations to share. This gives us a headache because, as regular readers will know, we’re useless with anything science-fictiony. Oh well, here goes…

First up, pictured above, is perig perig‘s ‘The Tiny Whale’, which looks like a boat, an airship and tow truck have been involved in a forceful accident. Still, it is, even to us here at TLCB, a deeply cool build, and you can see more at the link above.

Lego Tesla Mech

Next up is this mean looking tri-pedal mech from Flickr’s Sunder_59. This TLCB writer’s Better Half has informed him that pastel colours are in, which explains why Sunder’s creation looks so good. There’s more to see at the builder’s photostream – click the link above to take a look.

Lego Troop Support Vehicle

And finally, something with wheels! We still don’t really know it’s for though, seeing as it’s also a sci-fi build, but if we were a mini-figure we’d love to drive it to the shops. Volker Brodkorb is the builder behind it, it’s called a ‘DooM Inc. Troop Support Vehicle’, and there’s lot more to see on Flickr via the link above.

You can see more of all three builds via the links in the text above, and normal car-related service will resume here at TLCB shortly…

Not a Car

Lego Sky-Fi Aircraft

This is not a car. We’re not even completely sure it’s a plane. What we are sure of is that the inside of Vince_Toulouse‘s mind must be like one of those Salvador Dalí paintings with all the melting clocks. And that his F70 Double Faucon is gloriously, heroically, beautifully, weird. Join the madness on Flickr via the link above.

Yellow Empress

Lego Hot Rod

Stickers make everything better. Just ask any seven year old. We don’t think Flickr’s LegoGallifrey is a seven year old, but he’s of the same opinion, having bedecked his glorious sky-fi flying hot rod ‘Yellow Empress’ with a variety of power-enhancing decals. Suggested  by a reader you can see more at Gallifrey’s photostream via the link above.

Catching Clouds

Lego Flying Boat

Today’s post is not a car. Or even a boat. Or an aircraft. In fact we’re not really sure what it is, but we know we like it. The delightfully strange Dwalin Forkbeard is behind this floating weirdness and you can see more at his wilfully odd photostream here.

Skyence Fiction

Lego SkyFi Aircraft

If there’s one thing we understand even less than sci-fi here at The Lego Car Blog, it’s sci-fi that isn’t really sci-fi. This is sky-fi, where the laws of physics are only very loosely respected. This particular sky-fi contraption comes from Flickr’s Sylon-tw and there’s more to see at the link.

Cloud Crane

Lego Flying Pick-Up Truck

We’re not sure that a floating tow-truck is the most suitable vehicle in the event that your hovercar breaks down. An ambulance might be more appropriate. Or a hearse. No matter, redfern1950s‘ ‘Flying Pick Up Truck’ looks a delightfully whimsical way to haul stuff through the clouds. Float over to see more via the link above.

Balloon Shop

Lego Hot Air Balloon

And it’s not even a shop that sells balloons. You can see more of ‘The Flying Erwin’ airborne kiosk by Flickr’s Jonas on, er… Flickr. Float on over via the link.

Not a Car

Lego Sci-Fi

This is not a car. But it is awesome, and thus it’s appearing here. SweStar is the builder, appearing here for the first time, at you can see more of his ‘AE-97 Blaze of Glory’ here. Meanwhile, TLCB Elves are under strict instructions to find a car, what with it being in the blog title and whatnot…

And Now For Something Completely Different

Lego Sky-Fi Airship

Previous bloggee Vince Toulouse completely baffles TLCB writing team even when he’s making a car, so this gloriously whimsical Cruise Airship is so far outside of our comfort zone all we can do is post a link to something silly.

Lego Sky-Fi Aircraft

Despite our vernacular incompetence when it comes to anything without wheels (and, if we’re honest, most things with wheels too), we can say with confidence that Vince’s latest build is absolutely worth visiting – we could peruse this ship’s gorgeous detailing for hours. And so we probably will. See you at Vince’s amazing photostream.

Not a Car

Lego Ski-Fi Aircraft

And also not a real plane either. But Jon Hall’s latest ‘sky-fi’ fighter is too cool not to post. There’s more to see of his latest build and his other beautiful fictional aircraft on Flickr – click here for more.
