Pallet Pushers

Lego Forkilfts

The Lego Car Blog Elves are not impressed today. Firstly because we’re blogging your finds via the Feedback and Submission Suggestions page, which means they don’t get fed, and secondly because this post features the most mundane vehicles known to man. The Mitsubishi Carisma excepted of course.

Mundane they may be, but material handlers like the ones built here by Flickr’s Andrea Lattanzio aka Norton74 are the backbone of modern society. Everything in your home, including that ‘hand carved’ wooden sculpture you bought from that stall you passed on holiday, will have been moved by one of these at some point in its journey from Indonesian sweatshop to you.

Norton’s neat mini-figure scale material handlers span everything from hand-operated trolly jacks to high-lift forklift stackers and were built as a commissioned piece for the German manufacturer of their real-life counterparts.

There are more scenes to see at Norton’s Flickr photostream – click the link above and step inside the warehouse.

Lego Warehouse

We’re used to featuring far more glamorous vehicles here at The Lego Car Blog, but the humble forklift and pallet trolley really do deserve your appreciation.

The vehicular backbone of modern society, everything in your possession – from the chair you’re sitting on to the device with which you’re reading these words – will have at some stage been lifted, lowered or moved by one of these little mechanised workhorses.

Entitled ‘Warehouse Life’, this superb recreation of the most humdrum of scenes comes from previous bloggee and TLCB Master MOCer Norton74, it was suggested to us by a reader, and you can see more of the build in detail by clicking here.
