A trio of triumphant Wipeout racers

LEGO builders have been inspired for years by the antigravity racers in the 1995 PlayStation game Wipeout. Marius Herrmann demonstrates his mastery of yet another LEGO genre with a trio of racers, building on his perfect Bugatti Veyron and Thunderjaw from Horizon Zero Dawn. All three use custom decals and are presented on really cool stands, begging for space on any video game geek’s desk.

The first anti-grav racer incorporates harsh angles with detailing from red leaves.

Formula One redux

Back in 1975, long before the classic eighties Model Team sets that I had as a child, LEGO already made a series of realistic models of real vehicles, in the so-called Hobby sets. One of these was Lego set 392, Formula One; a model of a race car that, considering the limited parts that LEGO made at the time, was remarkably detailed.

Of course, with the fancy newer parts that we have today, it’s possible to make it smoother and more detailed, which is exactly what LegoExotics has done.
