Most cars come with a lot of options, especially sports cars. There are so many terms, and initials that could mean almost anything. This Lego Hot Rod, created by Faber Mandragore, is a Model B, and Supercharged. The scene features the car, a vintage gas pump, and some various mini builds. Hopefully the old Octan pumps have premium gas, you want to make sure everything is running at peak performance. The pile of tires is a perfect mini build, but the Hot Rod is the star. It features a few of the common engine building techniques. The Minifigure pistols, the intake, and the radiator are all popular details. What really sets this apart are the wheels. The exposed steering system looks great and is a surprisingly complicated detail. You can find Lego wrenches, a droid arm, crowbars, and axles. Lego Hot Rods are just as popular as their real life counterpart, and this one is one of the best Minifigure scale ones around.
This Lego Speedster is designed by FiliusRucilo. Speedster, Roadsters, Hot Rods, and all sorts of sporty cars are popular to build with Lego. This Minifigure scale vehicle has a very narrow design. The dark red, and black design is a classic paint color for these vehicles. There are a few small details that look great. The use of a Minifigure pistol and a Lego sausage are great pieces to represent engine details. The Nexo Knights shield works well as a hood. The whole build looks like something that could be attempting a world record at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Let’s hope our driver can set that world record!
This Lego Mecha, also known as “LHB-025 Dvergr,” is created by Ryuhei Kawai. And, the robot is ready battle. It comes equipped with a huge energy axe, a few small guns, and missiles. Most importantly it comes with its own backup, two little cars equipped with cannons. Each car is slightly different, if you notice the cannons have different colors. The blue car is optimized to be as light as possible. While the yellow vehicle is more armored, but presumably slower than the other. The mecha on the other hand looks like a tank. With huge arms, and relatively small feet. A very solid build that does not look fragile. If LHB-025 Dvergr somehow becomes unbalanced its backup will cause a distraction, until things can get back up and running.
Mr. Brick and Friends go on a lot of adventures. This time these three bricks are on a roadtrip to the beach in their bright yellow convertible. Created by EVCreations, “Mr Brick & Friends at the beach” is a great Lego MOC. The yellow convertible car is gloriously proud of its studs. It features headlights, a windshield wiper, and a green interior. The vehicle is just wide enough to fit three. Mr. Brick and the other two are great examples of mixing Duplo into the Lego system. The Lego Mixels ball joints and printed eye tiles and pieces go a long way to giving these three expressions. Another great detail is that the background beach scene is just a few pieces of paper, and a tan cloth. Simple yet perfect.
The Delorean will always be associated with the film Back to the Future. It is one of the most iconic vehicles in the movies. So it makes sense that there are a lot of Delorean Lego builds. The official Lego Back to the Future Delorean (21103) is an excellent version, but it is a little rough. Most people critiqued the way the hood was broken up into two levels of plates and not smooth. This version of the Delorean, by Łukasz Libuszewski is much smoother. It is a normal version of the car, not the time traveling one. The sloping hood here is very well done, but it does leave how it was achieved up to the imagination. It looks like it can only hold one Minifigure, which is the same as the official release (although with a simple mod, you can fit two). This Lego MOC is so well done I want to see it turned into the more famous time machine.
The Fiat 500 is a classic car often seen across the European continent. The two door compact car was famous for its ability to fit easily into tight city streets. It was manufactured in Italy between 1957 and 1975. As the years passed, the smaller design mixed with the curvy styling quickly made this a collectible. All of which makes it perfect as the latest release of the Lego Creator theme.
The Lego Fiat 500 (10271) is currently available. With 960 pieces at $89.99 the set seems to be right in the middle for pricing. The vintage vehicle features all sort of details. There is a fully detailed engine compartment in the back hatch. If it is too hot, you can open the sunroof. And, if you find yourself in some trouble there is a full size spare tire under the front hood. There is even a portable artist easel, perfect for painting various historical landmarks.
The Fiat also features a fully detailed interior. With gear stick, steering wheel, hand brake, blinker, and speedometer. Besides the iconic yellow paint, the reclining seats are in a classic red. Make sure to check out all the details.
It looks like the heroes from Final Fantasy XV (Noctis, Gladiolus, Ignis, and Prompto) have stumbled into some sort of Lego MOC. Just another detour from the main quest. You wouldn’t want them to actually do what they are supposed to (which you don’t, the main quest is…). You could say the game has a few hubs in the open world portion. One of which is the Hammerhead Garage. Home of Cid and Cindy. For some reason they are more then happy to wash all of the dust and spiderwebs off the Lego Regalia. This Hammerhead Garage MOC is the creation of Joseph Z.
Nothing like speeding through the desert in a red hot rod. Just don’t break down, the vultures might get to you. It looks like it might be a bit too late for some poor backpacker. This little vignette of Red 66 is the creation of Sylon-tw. Every piece is carefully placed. Check out how slick the engine turned out. The ice-skating blade is a stand out detail.
In one of the weirder marketing moments of this new year, it has been revealed that the new Lego Batmobile is “built by Chevy.” There is even an official website. It looks like Lego Batman paid $48,000,000 for his new wheels. It has 120,000 lbs. max towing capacity, 20,000 horsepower, and comes equipped with 4G-LTE connectivity. Also listed as features are flame rocket boosters, fully-articulated wheels, and a standard 60.2L V100 engine. The Batmobile can operate in three modes. Race Mode, Monster Truck Mode, and Parallel Park Mode. The only downside… it seats 2 Minifigures.
“Every angle, sharp as a tack. Every element, handcrafted for hot pursuit. When dreaming up the LEGO® Batmobile, designers drew inspiration from a combination of classic renditions and other-worldly shapes. The result? An enemy-evading machine that will draw stares and fend off foes in equal measure.”
“In order to enjoy The Great Outdoors in style, you can’t go wrong with a classic 1974 Ford Bronco with swivel seats, wood paneling, and a working winch to pull you out of trouble when nature proves to be tougher than most other vehicles can handle. A canoe strapped to the roof makes this an ideal vehicle for leaving the city life behind for awhile. Remember, next time you’re out enjoying the wilderness, take only photos and leave only footprints. Nature will appreciate it!”
