Surplus Photo!

Those of you with good memories may be familiar with today’s creation. It is of course the Army Surplus Special, one of the many Wacky Racers that fought it out for fame and glory in the 1968 Hanna-Barbera series. This wonderful homage to the Sergeant Blast and Private Meekley’s cartoon chariot first appeared here back in 2016, and builder Redfern1950s has recently re-photographed it for us thanks to the threat of a TLCB Elf armed with a sharpened pencil.

No, seriously, whilst Elves armed with pencils are a very real threat here in The Lego Car Blog office, Redfern has actually re-photographed his Surplus Six as he’s become the seventeenth elite builder to join the TLCB Master MOCer Hall of Fame!

You can read Redfern’s brilliant Lego-building journey via the link below, where a host of his other magnificent vehicles feature, and learn how he turns cartoons and caricatures into brick-built masterpieces!

Redfern1950s is back with one of the few remaining Wacky Racers he’s not yet built, Penelope Pitstop in the ‘Compact Pussycat’, and it’s taking every fibre of our restraint for us not to make lewd jokes, so we’ll end this post before we get into trouble – check out Penelope’s pink pussy here! Damn.

Wacky Races!

Lego Wacky Races Mean Machine

The Lego Car Blog Elves are easily addicted creatures. Not to any hard substances of course (unless you count when we forget to lock the stationary cupboard and all our glue sticks get eaten), but their various fascinations can become all-consuming. Most of these have been in televisual form, with the Transformers and Mad Max movies being their most recent obsessions, but the winds of favour are fickle and in the last few weeks both the Elves’ previous loves have been supplanted by a deep and almost religious reverence for a 40 year-old cartoon.

Lego Wacky Races Army Surplus Special

Luckily for us we quite like the Elves’ current obsession, which started when Flickr builder Redfern1950s built the Army Surplus Special from the 1970s Hannah-Barbera animated series ‘Wacky Races’ a few weeks ago. Five more Wacky Races creations have since followed, and the Elves have become so fixated on the animated antics of the Wacky Races crew that they can think of little else.

Today therefore, three Elves were borne aloft by their colleagues as heroes of the hunt, as each had returned with a new Wacky Races vehicle to revere. All three are the work of captainsmog of Flickr, and that he’s given them their own album folder suggests that there might be many more to come! There’s more to see of the Captain’s mini-figure scale ‘Mean Machine’, ‘Army Surplus Special’ and ‘Turbo Terrific’ in the aforementioned album via the link above – click the link to make the jump.
