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.
After a mishap in the kitchen with breakfast Wallace and Gromit are ready to wash windows and save the day. It’s been a busy day, meeting a very hungry sheep named Shaun. The robot dog Preston is up to no good and Wendolene will need to be saved. Good thing they have a fast motorcycle. This “A Close Shave” Lego MOC is built by grubaluk and hides a nice surprise. This Lego build is an actual working RC Motorcycle. I’m sure Gromit doesn’t mind, but he is sharing the sidecar with a the motor. The Lego RC motorcycle can go forward, and make turns. To help sell the illusion that Wallace is driving, a clever system of gears and strings attach his arms to the handlebars. The rest of the Lego work is great too. The studs being used to represent a rough wool sweater is a great detail. As are the Lego snakes, and wool hat used for details on Gromits face. They motorcycle looks good too! But is it fast enough for Lego Wallace and Gromit to save the day from the malfunctioning Preston?
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.
