Head on over to BrickZone.net for a full photo review of what appears to be the very first set from the upcoming Indiana Jones line — 7620 Indiana Jones Motorcycle Escape.
In his own words, “Admiral Giddens just purchased the Numitor from Bufford T Justice Fazoom. Captain Fazoom put the proton injector booster on his dad’s car prior to the sale, breaking up the classic lines. But, it does add features like 120% more time bending and less knocking on unleaded fleebjuice.
The Numitor is a 1 seater sedan that gets 1 million miles to the gallon skyway, 720,000 in the city. Comes standard with air and 8 track.”
I love the graphics edit in this photo! Makes me want to buy one as well.
If the Emperor gets his personal guards, why can’t the dark lord himself? When I found those red Darth Vader helmets on Bricklink, I knew what I had to do.
Well I’m trying to be a bit better about blogging my own stuff relatively quickly. This loco is based on a die-cast model of a German HF 110C locomotive which is meant to have six wheels but since I wanted it motorised with the classic motor it only has four. If you look carefully you will notice that the boiler and rear coal tender are upside down. Hope you like it.
I was originally going to add a comment about this to Nannan’s post below but decided that while over a year old, this tank was worthy of its own post.
Check out the video of the tank in motion!
I am impressed by the functionality of the mindstorms kit. I am coincidentally working on my own motorized tank, but it uses a basic motor. This impressive demonstration of combining robotics with system certainly inspired me to consider using mindstorms in any future endeavors at motorized things.
To honor the selection of his “Armadillo” (on the left above) as the “MOC of the Month” on Portuguese LEGO fan site Fórum 0937, the site featured an interview. Now, we’re lucky enough to have an English version on Klocki.
So, nice to meet you, Marcin Danielak! :-D
Flickr user samus21 indeed made something for Cherry Darling from the film Grindhouse. Excellent.
Aaron Andrews (aka Darkspawn) was just featured on a podcast interview on LAML. Check out what this master castle builder has to say about his most recent Crown Manor and his works in general. Here is his interview.
It is intentional that I tagged this blog entry in the “superhero” category :)
