‘Tis this season of scaring small children, taking candy from strangers, and dressing in little-to-nothing. But enough about this TLCB Writer’s plans for tonight, we’ve time for one final post before the Halloween spookiness begins. Cue Stephen King’s ‘Christine‘, a haunted ’58 Plymouth Fury containing the vengeful spirit of a past owner, and a taste for blood. Regular bloggee Jonathan Elliott has brought Christine back in brick form, and you can take a closer look on Flickr via the link. Just make sure you take good care of her…
Tricycles are easily the creepiest form of transport known to mankind. But that hasn’t stopped Eurobricks’ Milan from building one (rather spectacularly) from Lego. Now to find an empty hotel to ride it in…
Body by Plymouth. Soul By Satan. 1983 saw the film adaptation of the Stephen King novel Christine, starring a dilapidated 1958 Plymouth Fury with a Herbie-like personality instilled within it. Only this car was nothing like Herbie.
TLCB favourite Ralph Savelsberg aka Mad Physicist has added ‘Christine’ to his ever-growing garage of superb movie cars. All the photos of the build can be found on Flickr here, and we’re delighted to announce that Ralph has also been cornered by The Lego Car Blog Elves, becoming the penultimate builder in our Master MOCer Series.
Mr. Savelsberg’s interview in The Lego Car Blog’s Master MOCers Series, where he explains how he started building LEGO, what has influenced his style, and how he creates amazing models such as the Plymouth above is available now; simply click this link to read his story!
OK, it’s not a Big Wheel, but this twice life-size tricycle by certified LEGO Professional Sean Kenney sure has a ‘Shining’ air to it.
Or it might just be that Stanley Kubrick’s cinematic masterpiece is so powerful that any red trike immediately conjures up images of elevators full of with blood, partying ghosts and madmen with axes. See more of this totally harmless tricycle (probably) at Sean’s MOCpage via the link above.
