This Lego Tiny Tank is rolling its way to victory. The little tank is built by Tyler. Another Iron Builders build, these have all been trying to use Minifigure Legs / Pants in new and unique ways. You might be able to spy a lot of legs in the tank treads (or is it called a continuous track?). This cartoon’ed version of a tank features a giant top mounted machine gun, and a huge main gun. Presumably firing something a little less deadly. Besides the armaments, a few details to check out include the Nexo Knight shield used as an insignia, and the little diesel fuel exhaust pipe in the back.
“Thomas was never the same…” is a Lego MOC built by Leonid An. It is a horrific combination of Thomas the Tank Engine and a spider. A serene smile and eight legs ending in pointy red claws. This type of build is really interesting, as it is combining Duplo, Lego System, and Technic pieces. Most of the connections are made in the middle part of the train/thorax. A complicated setup of legs all meet up in this spot to support Thomas the Train. The two black printed circles on the cab of the train almost look like false eyes. A great detail. Something that may be haunting my nightmares.
The M577 APC, or Armored Personnel Carrier is the perfect vehicle to take to battle against Aliens. This Lego MOC has all the features including Turret, RE700 Rotary Canon, and DSGR Smart Missiles. There is even room for a small Minifigure crew. Nothing can stop this APC, it is explosion and bullet proof, and can roll over all sorts of terrain. Just make sure not to spill acid around it. This vehicle is the creation of Rick Brickham, and is made up of about 750 pieces.
One of the best comic book characters from the 80’s and 90’s is Tank Girl. She is famous for all of her adventures across a post-apocolypitic Australia. Not only does she have a tank, but a mutant kangaroo boyfriend, a collection of talking stuffed animals, and a core group of weird friends. This Lego Tank Girl is the newest custom Minifigure from Minifigs.me. She even comes with her own comic. If you want to learn more about Tank Girl the Humble Comics Bundle is featuring a collection of Tank Girl comics, check it out.
Batman’s Tumbler is one of the most iconic vehicles in recent cinema. Lego quickly released a version of their own, titled “Lego Super Heroes Tumbler Chase (76001).” While popular, a lot of fans were underwhelmed by the actual design of the Tumbler. It was small and simple. Lego has recently given it another try with the release of “Lego Superheroes The Tumbler (76023).” This one is scaled up larger then the Minifigures, but is extremely detailed. One of the coolest vehicles Lego has released.
But, Lego is still missing a good Minifigure scale Tumbler. Brent Waller has decided to create his own, and best of all has created instructions to build your own. This Batmobile is perfectly scaled for Batman, while preserving the detail and shape of the famous car.
A Lego Ideas (CUUSOO) page was created to support this MOC, and it quickly earned its 10,000 votes. Ultimately Lego announced that this would be “not approved.” But don’t worry, if you have enough Lego bricks at home, you can create your own.
