In the Fallout Wasteland there is nothing better than a Nuka Cola (well maybe some RadAway). This incredibly popular soda pop can be seen all over the land. Lego builder Keith Reed has created this scene, and describes it as such: “A family trying to reach a bomb shelter, takes up refugee in a delivery truck.” The Cadillac style sedan is an excellent rusted Lego car. The use of the different greens mixed with tan and brown works well. It adds a lot to the story; you can guess just how long these people have been trapped in the Wasteland. The blighted landscape is well built, the stagnant green water and the odd mushrooms immediately give off the feeling of sickness. The Lego Nuka Cola truck is appropriately rusted out and even includes a brick built logo on the side. Inside the truck, is the sad realization that the family did not survive the apocalypse. One of the best details in this Lego MOC is the road, the broken up pot holes are expertly created with SNOT techniques, and provides a great contrast to the rough (and stud filled) landscape.
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.
Space Drag Racing is all the rage throughout the universe. An extremely competitive and dangerous sport for the drivers, and spectators. The Neo Classic Space inspired dragster, known as the DR4G-5T3R, is the work of Rubblemaker. The blue spaceman pilot is the only guy brave enough to drive the fastest land vehicle in Space Drag Racing. This Lego MOC features a two wheel design, with a gigantic engine, and more exhaust pipes than a fuel refinery. The dragster is based on swivel-ball tech, meaning super fast all terrain turns. This is achieved with the gigantic rear wheel, which is actually a Lego Death Star piece from the Lego Star Wars Planet Sets. A tough piece to work with, as it doesn’t have a lot of studs and connection points. The blue, grey, and yellow design is a perfect call back to classic space, which makes you go faster. But, is it enough to win the drag race?
The Peterbilt 379 truck is one of the most popular trucks ever made. Manufactured between 1987 and 2007, this vehicle was one of the largest trucks ever sold. Besides rolling down highways, the Peterbilt has been starring in films and video games. Most notably appearing as Optimus Prime from the Transformers series. This Lego Peterbilt 379 truck is built by Vladimir Drozd. Like the real life version, this is a huge Lego MOC. The truck features 6 wheels, and a sleeper cab. The shape and details are all spot on. Especially the hood and grill. The various lights and antennae are also well built. The truck also comes with a long trailer. It looks like it is shipping various Lego pipes made out 1×1 round bricks. There is even a spare tire in the back. A lot of interesting features have been included in this semi truck. There is a technic undercarraige, giving the back tires a suspension system that can adjust about 1 brick in height. The hood also opens up to reveal a fully detailed engine. All the better to drive cross country.
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?
The tiny house is one of those concepts that has universal appeal. With just enough space to live and all the added benefits of being able to move around. It gives you the best of both worlds, a place to settle down and a nomadic lifestyle. What is better then a tiny house. A lego tiny house. Thomas Gion created this MOC. A perfect partner to the little home was also built; a faded green 1970 Chevrolet C10 Truck. The exterior comes with gas tanks and battery hookups, when parked there are even folding supports, a charming yellow door, and a front porch. In the end, this MOC is one of the cleanest builds, there is not one extraneous piece.
The Lego Tiny House can fold open for easier access. Inside is a fully featured and detailed interior. With a tiny kitchen (sink & microwave), a tiny bathroom (toilet & shower), a tiny dinning area (table & chairs), and a tiny loft (bed & window). All built on a 1×6 frame, for a 1×4 interior width. Making this is a very cozy house.
