LEGO planes, trains, and automobiles! Well, maybe not trains, since they don’t like to play with the other LEGO themes, but here you’ll find all our favorite cars, buses, boats, ships, helicopters, and anything else with an engine (and some without).

’32 Deuce Coupe from American Graffiti

Calin just rolled out this awesome little yellow hot rod, as a a tribute to John Milner’s ’32 Deuce Coupe from the iconic film American Graffiti. The lines and styling are incredible. It’s an amazing that the builder was able to achieve this shape in such a small footprint. You have to admit that the the use of bananas for fenders is a great touch too!

Montage of Sky-Fi Fighters by Jon Hall

Jon Hall built five incredible planes this year. To commemorate that, he just posted this montage. Somehow we dropped the ball and only posted one of them here. That lapse has now been rectified. Here they are, all together in their breath-taking awesomeness.

Jon’s planes are truly works of art. So smooth, so seamless, so beautiful. He does paint some of them and uses custom stickers, which probably irritates somebody, somewhere. But he does it so well, I feel it just adds to the “realism” and makes the suspension of disbelief that much easier.

Steampunk “Victorian Henderson” Motorcycle

This lovely cycle is a steampunk mashup between one of the most beautiful art-deco bikes of all time, the Henderson 1930, and a little known scooter, the Honda Joker. Dwalin Forkbeard combines the best features of both bikes and creates a steampunk treasure. I love how the curves of the front give way to the chopper-esque handle bars that curve over the reclining seat. Those wheels are pretty cool too.

Vintage delivery truck

Flickr member bigboy99899 created this fully playable vintage delivery truck, complete with functional steering, optional roof, and cargo of beer barrels and other assorted booze. So suffice so say it’s a pre-prohibition era design!

As well as using an earthy color scheme to give the model that vintage feel, I also like that the builder did not constrain themselves to a specific scale (such as mining or miniland), allowing them to capture all of the details and angles that collectively make this such a fine looking vehicle.

Santa Claus is coming to town and he’s coming in hot

Gilcelio is going nuts in the current Iron Builder round and this build is the result of that. While I love a good vehicle as much as the next guy, it is way better when a builder puts that vehicle in context with a good backdrop. Santa’s hot rod is a great build but what I really dig is the action going on around it.
