A bicycle can offer a feeling of freedom unmatched by almost any other vehicle. If I could ride a bike all day I would. This Lego Bicycle Automaton, created by parsom, offers just that fantasy. The first thing you notice is that the automaton feature is on full display. The design mimics the design of a bike, with a chain and two wheels. By turning the small crank the Minifigure will start riding, with wheels turning and the background changing. Every season is represented, it doesn’t matter if it is sun or snow, nothing will stop a good bike ride. This Lego MOC is up on Lego Ideas, so make sure to vote for it if you want to see something like this released by Lego. There is also a video to check out (below), which shows how everything works.
Aurora Sievert is one of the top speeder bike pilots around. Her speeder is the Hurricane III. Known for its minimal design which makes it super fast, although not the safest vehicle. This Lego Figure is created by Eero Okkonen, and called “Aurora Sievert and Hurricane III.” The figure was built first and the end result ended up with a lot of style. The blue and yellow color theme looks great with the red and orange highlights. The design for Aurora was inspired by a Lego windshield and solar panel which would become her shirt. The figure has a bunch of interesting stuff incorporated into it, you can find Lego tires used for ankles, blue and yellow flame pieces make great hair, and a pair of Lego Minifigure hands for eyes. The Hurricane was built afterwards to match Aurora’s design. The speeder bike was inspired by the film, Laputa. Some of the pieces are from the themes Aquazone, Ninjago, and Fabuland. This speeder does not look easy to fly, so a complex weave of hoses and tubes hold Aurora for safety.
This Lego Garage is the perfect place to store all of your tools. This “Grownup’s Toy Box” is created by Daniel Church. The Lego build is an entry into the Iron Builders challenge, this time it is to use Minifigure wrenches and hammers in unique ways. You can find some of the wrenches being used to hold up a ladder, as handles and parts in the lawn mower / snow blower, and as part of the roof. The hammers can be found holding up a bunch of shelves and even the motorcycle. This Lego garage is a perfect example of using lighting to help make the presentation look better. The soft afternoon glow, mixed with the green background (seen through the windows) gives off a very nostalgic feeling. The only thing missing from this garage, are a bunch of spiders hiding everywhere.
Lego is showing off a new Technic set, the Ducati Panigale V4 R (42107). This super bike is one of the most powerful legal bikes currently available. Lego has tried to capture the “style, sophistication, performance” of the Ducati. With 646 pieces and a price tag of $69.99/€69.99 the bike goes on sale in August.
This street bike has a bunch of features. The headlining feature is that this is the very first motorcycle to have a gearbox with different speeds. Lego seems to be really pushing this design, as you can remove the panels to see the engine and how everything works. Also mentioned is that the bike has full steering, front and rear brakes, suspension, and a working kickstand. Everything is held together with bright red panels, and a super durable Technic frame.
The Lego Minifigures Series are fun to collect. They always look great too, especially when displayed in a group. One of the best ways to show off your collection is to build little mini MOCs or vignettes. These Lego Minifigures Series 19 vignettes are super cute. Created by zaru_soba, they show off all the different figures and create a mini story. The personality of each minifig matches up perfectly with their scene. The video gamer battlestation, the bathtub wave surfer, the dog sitter, and the retro gardener are some favorites. What is great is that these type of MOCs take relatively few pieces to build.
There are only a few animated cyberpunk films out there that have reached the critical mass. Akira being one of them. From its manga origin to its 25th anniversary Blu-ray there are a lot interpretations of the Akira story. One of the most iconic features from the film is the super sleek red motorcycle that the protagonist Kaneda rides. This red bike is instantly recognizable.
David VII, from MOCpages created this little bike, and included a neat Minifigure of Kaneda too. The Lego version of the motorcycle has been built in the Minifigure scale. Kaneda’s Motorcycle is perfectly represented, and looks relatively easy to recreate.
