Spanish LEGO fan Fernando (Sheepo) shows his crazy engineering skills with this beautiful recreation of a Caterham 7, a small British sports car. Technic builders never cease to amaze me with the amount of functionality they can build entirely with brick and still pack into a small frame, and this model is at the top Continue reading →
LEGO Power Functions models on The Brothers Brick
Paul Hetherington (Brickbaron) must be a little monster because he recently spent quite a bit of time and effort on recreating Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” concert tour from 2012. If you consult the full set, you can find the major highlights and set-changes from the entire big-budget extravaganza. This particular part of the performance Continue reading →
LegoMarat brings you some remote-controlled action tonight with his rendition of an Illinois Department of Transportation International 4400 tow truck. Not content to merely nail the shaping for the exterior, he also packed in a working front and rear suspension, opening doors, 6 motors, 3 IR receivers, and a battery box to bring it all Continue reading →
No Starch Press recently sent us a review copy of their latest Technic offering, The Unofficial LEGO Technic Builder’s Guide by Paweł “Sariel” Kmieć. I found the book to be full of very useful information. I am not an expert Technic builder by any means and when I first thumbed through the book I was Continue reading →
Continuing our coverage of great LEGO models debuted at BrickCon 2012, Paul Hetherington just posted his FUN HAUS! building, which won “Best in Town.” (Paul has a serious winning streak going — he also won Town trophies in 2010 and 2011, and won our “Best Apocafied Building” prize during Zombie Apocafest 2009 for his Turns Continue reading →
The latest creations by the power functions mastermind Peer Kreuger (mahjqa) hail from The Dark Knight Rises. Check out the video to see the Tumbler tearing up the streets with The Bat “flying” above.
ZCerberus sure knows how to build a nice castle village scene. The elemental monster is also a cool creation by itself. But, what really caught my attention on this MOC is the ingenious use of Power Functions on the scene. Both the moving tentacles and the leaning tower are what makes this creation really great. Watch Continue reading →
Orion Pax (Alexander Jones) builds this impressive power functions truck for a Sneaker Freaker event in Zurich. He used the simple and effective chassis for monster trucks designed by mahjqa. This is also Alex’s first model featured on his new website.
I have much respect for Paul Hetherington (Brickbaron) and his highly detailed dioramas that often include elements in motion. This whimsical envisioning of Atlantis features dancing mermaids, moving statues, and a surprise in the giant clam.
Thirdwigg, inspired by using his F1 wheels, created this spunky little 3 wheeled, remote controlled Power Function Roadster. He packs the battery pack, receiver, and self centering steering into a compact frame. Notably, he mounted the XL Power Function Motor in the hub of the drive wheel. Check out the video.
The Japanese builders know their mechs, and this one by Legorobo is a prime example. Beyond looks, the mech features remote controlled movement and more. Check out the video below:
Paul (Sariel), one of the greatest Technic builders, seems to achieve the impossible by building a remote-controlled Lego truck capable of hauling a load of almost 20 pounds. Don’t believe it? Take a look at the video below. Thanks for the tip vmln8r!
It’s big, shiny, and powered. Mark Markiewicz‘s 1:17 scale Kenworth W900 Dump Truck is a sight to behold. As he mentions on MOCpages, the goal for this creation was a fully IR controlled dump truck. I think he succeeded. Watch it move:
Peer Kreuger (mahjqa) brings the finest examples of the wonders achieved with Power Functions. His Tachikoma think tank from Ghost in the Shell not only walks but also rolls and steers. In addition it features moving eyes and arms, all packed in a compact and beautiful design. Visit Flickr for more photos including pictures of Continue reading →
This is Jarek‘s biggest and baddest Power Functions war machine, and it looks as good as it drives. Check it out in action on Youtube and watch it destroy the Ork army.
