This is not a car. Not even close. But it is really cool and we like Classic Space, so here it is. Built by Flickr’s Kloou in collaboration with two other builders, this 1.2metre tall tower finally gives the humble Classic Spacemen a base of their very own.
Constructed using the baseplates from LEGO’s long-forgotten Soccer range, Kloou’s monument to classic space is an impressive feat of engineering featuring a variety of spacecraft and other vehicles, and is also packed with easter eggs.
Head over to Flickr via the link above to climb the tower, and see if you can spot Darth Vader and Luke’s famous scene, the three-eyed alien from Toy Story, and Batman amongst the classic spacemen.
Here at The Lego Car Blog the creations we blog are unearthed by our unpaid and unusual workforce of smelly little Elves, bred especially to find the best Lego vehicles on the net. They’re fed based upon the success of their search and – sometimes – they’re also awarded an appropriately coloured Smartie upon each successfully blogged find.
This incredible creation by Digital Dreams therefore gave us quite a headache, because just look at how many cars there are! Luckily for us they’re all digital, and thus if we were feeling really mean the intrepid Elf in question would have only received a digital tube of Smarties. However, so good is this creation that we gave the Elf a choice of Smartie, and ensured the canteen actually fulfilled the recommended Elf allowance of vitamins and iron.
So, one happy and – at least briefly – healthy Elf later we have quite a design to show you. This astonishing creation is a 192 car Autostadt tower, inspired by the two real-world versions that Volkswagen have installed at their Wolfsburg manufacturing plant. There are 26,000 virtual Lego pieces in Digital Dreams’ MLCad version that took a colossal 70 hours to digitally render. There’s a huge gallery of images available and you can see all the renderings of of Digital Dreams’ spectacular Autostadt tower on either Flickr or MOCpages.
