The master of Power Functions vehicles Peer Kreuger (mahjqa) posted instructions to build a RC tank chassis. You can see a video demonstration of the chassis on Youtube as well as an example of what can be built on the chassis.

Max Shepherd, a biomedical engineering major, doesn’t normally build with LEGO but when he does, it is really awesome. This fully articulated technic arm is quite incredible. I’m really impressed at how well it mimics the range and motion of a human arm and hand. I also found this quote rather interesting. I started following Continue reading →
This life-sized Gears of War Lancer Assault Rifle by PLUM B already got the looks to fit a COG soldier, but it also features a clip-fed firing mechanism that shoots rubber bands – perfect for taking out the paper Locust horde. If that’s not enough, the saw blade on the front of the gun is Continue reading →
Vimal Patel’s (vmln8r) Lego monster truck does all that a monster truck can do, including jumping the shark, crashing through brick walls, and smashing cars.
Matija Grguric takes us back to the Wild West with this fun carnival scene. But the crown jewel of this diorama isn’t the crowded carnival atmosphere, the bank robbers or the western buildings, though all of those are very nice. What really makes it stand out is the fact that it is powered. Who doesn’t Continue reading →
Tyler and I are proud to present our second collaborative display called Oasis, built for Brickworld 2011. This 5′ X 7′ project was completed from April to June and contains approximately 25,000 pieces. It was inspired by the idea of a spinning wheel towering above a pool of moving water. The story goes that long Continue reading →
Yet again we should thank our Technic guest blogger Peer Kreuger (mahjqa) for this one. If you’re interested in technic, you should know about Sariel. He’s a very productive builder, who takes his time to document his building process and share his techniques. He’s also equally proficient at both system and technic building. So if Continue reading →
The Motorized Lego group on Flickr is hosting a contest for sci-fi creations that feature motorized components. The contest starts now and runs until April 1st. You can win custom trophies that include their own playable functions. Now that’s awesome.
A commuter bus seems like a pretty good summary of the last few months of my life, except this working articulated bus by Vibor Cavor (Veeborg) is so much cooler than anything I’ve been riding. So worth checking out the rest of his photoset of this bus since he goes into such detail about the Continue reading →
There’s much more to this Juggernaut than meets the eye. Max Yang (Artifex Creation) built this Turbo Tank with remote-controlled driving and steering, along with other RC mechanisms such as clip-fed guns and missiles. It’s even outfitted with custom-designed flashing lights. You can see all these features in the Youtube video below. Thanks for the Continue reading →
Like many of Peer Kreuger’s (mahjqa) vehicles, they function in real life. His latest Stilzkin Indrik Arctic Vehicle is no different, having the ability to haul a load through real snow. Check out the video below and visit the Flickr set for pictures of the chassis.
Paul (Sariel) of LUGPol completed an accurate and functional model of the Leopard 2 German tank. According to former Armor Officer Brad Edmondson who sent me the link, this is “by far the best representation of a Leopard2 tank in Lego yet.” You can check out the video of the model in action on Youtube.
As best stated by the builder, Huib Versteeg (spacie 11), “this monstrosity will either blast the enemy into a trillion bits or devour it. And if it doesn’t do either of those, well, then it’s malfunctioning and should be disintegrated.” Did I mention it actually walks?
Ralph Savelsberg (Mad physicist) has built a colorful and complex model of the Scania R500 recovery truck, featuring remote-controlled drive and steering. I love the half plate inset on the sides and the colored lines that run across the vehicle. As with Ralph’s style, you can see the exposed studs on the top that contributes Continue reading →
This Peterbilt rig by Bricksonwheels is to die for. While the shiney chrome goodness leaps out at you, the build is phenomonal. Remoted controlled via Power Functions and featuring all sort of fun features, this truck truly rocks.
