1995’s Oscar winning ‘A Close Shave’ was the third instalment in the wonderful ‘Wallace & Gromit’ series, and it brought Shaun the Sheep to screens for the first time, a clay animal who’s now possibly more famous than the duo that uncovered him.
The movie also featured a rather brilliant chase scene, with Wallace & Gromit in their trusty motorcycle and sidecar fitted with a few choice modifications.
Recreating the famous motorbike is grubaluk of Flickr, who has rebuilt both the bike and characters wonderfully from Lego bricks. That’s not all though, as like Wallace’s bike in the movie, grubaluk’s model has a few secrets hidden inside, chiefly one of the most brilliant remote control systems we’ve ever seen.
Watch the video below to find out why, and you can see all the images at grubalek’s photostream via the link above.
This magnificent motorcycle and sidecar from previous bloggee redfern1950s probably has nothing to do with our favourite plasticine duo, but it’s close enough to allow us to tenuously include this link! You can see more of redfern’s gorgeous bike at his photostream via the link above.
Everybody knows the moon is made of cheese. Flickr’s Galaktek is exploring the tasty future of lunar expedition with this professional-looking cheese mining team, who are working hard to bring the bountiful harvest to unadorned pieces of toast and dry crackers everywhere.
Complete with crane, cheese barge and a space mouse, the cheese miners look well equipped to extract the lunar-gold and transport it to earth for human consumption. Sadly the helmets necessitated by the moon’s lack of atmosphere prevent the plucky mini-figures from enjoying any of the cheese themselves, but we’re happy to report back on its quality should we be provided with a sample. Grab a cracker and head over to Galaktek’s photostream for a tasting.
