The Search for Red Rackham’s Treasure

Lego Tintin Sirius

The Lego Car Blog’s offices don’t have a classy desk area with those little brass plaques and fancy green desk lights. We do have a mostly-stocked beer fridge and a shrine to Megan Fox behind the photocopier though, and not many workplaces can say that.

However, if we did have a fancy desk area we’d love to place this in it. This beautiful creation is a mini-figure scale replica of the Sirius ship used by Tintin in the search for Red Rackham’s treasure, and it’s ludicrously pretty. Built by previous bloggee Stefan Johansson there are gorgeous details and ingenious building techniques in abundance, and there’s much more of Stefan’s wonderfully photographed vessel to see on Flickr.

Unicorn’s Secret

Lego Bellanca CH-300 Tintin Aircraft

This superb 1920s float plane comes from previous bloggee Henrik Jensen, and it’s got to be our favourite aircraft of the year so far. Star of ‘The Adventures of Tintin – The Unicorn’s Secret’ it’s a Bellanca CH-300 and it’s absolutely wonderful. There’s lots more to see on both Flickr and MOCpages, including some neat build details and information on the real aircraft.

Tintin In Space

Lego Space TinTin Rocket

This spectacular Classic Space Vs. Tintin mash-up is the work of certified Lego professional Ryan McNaught, aka TheBrickMan, and was discovered by one of our workers on Flickr.

Ryan’s enormous Tintin spaceship opens up to reveal a wonderfully detailed mini-figure interior, whilst the classic spacemen servicing the giant rocket* have a variety of classic space vehicles at their disposal, and the whole scene is mounted on a brilliant scaled-up version of the space baseplate that Lego produced to accompany the Classic Space range in the 1980s.

There’s loads more to see at Ryan’s photostream – click the link above to launch!

*Just like your Mom.

Les Aventures de Tintin

Lego Tintin Rocket

Belgium isn’t famed for having contributed much to humanity. Admittedly they did come up with the internal combustion engine – without which this blog wouldn’t have a lot of content – but after Stella Artois and The Smurfs we got stuck. Until we saw this.

It comes from TLCB newcomer gonkius, and he has recreated the impossibly curvy spaceship of Belgium’s favourite comic book character Tintin wonderfully. And hugely!

There’s more to see of this beautiful retro rocket on Flickr – click the above link to take the trip!
