Tag Archives: The G Brix

A glimpse of the future in the palm of your hand

Hyundai’s N Vision 74 concept car caused a real stir when it was unveiled earlier this year, with petrolheads immediately falling in love. The G Brix has allowed us to fall head over heels all over again with this superb LEGO rendition of the car. Just like the real thing, it absolutely looks the business! The concept’s awesome styling was inspired by another Hyundai concept from 1974, itself used as a basis for the DMC Delorean. And while it can’t time-travel, this is still a pretty futuristic car. It’s powered by electric motors and a hydrogen fuel cell, details which G Brix has included. The angular bodywork is expertly recreated around it, while the grille tiles are a great idea to represent the headlights.

Not ‘alf bad for an Alfa

It can be a challenge to recreate the curvaceous, flowing lines of modern cars in LEGO’s angular format. The G Brix clearly enjoys a challenge, and if that wasn’t enough he’s chosen one of the prettiest cars to come out in recent years. No pressure, then! Luckily for us, they are a very talented builder, as evidenced by this Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm. The car is built to the same 8-wide standard as current Speed Champions sets, although with slightly more detail than might be expected from the official LEGO kits. Before we get to that, though… Let’s appreciate just how gorgeous this car is:

Lovely, isn’t it? Let’s take a look under the bonnet…

Space themes on wheels

Generally, when one thinks about yore’s classic space themes, big spaceship builds come to mind and occasionally a tiny rover. The G Brix gives us something different – a very large LEGO rover which can be flipped over, each side with its own aesthetic, depending on your mood it can be Blacktron or the Space Police.

The space police portion of the build uses vibrant translucent red elements, including the cockpit, and brilliant blue elements such as tiles and wing pieces. Of course, there are some distinguishing printed “police” tiles and slopes.

Now flip the build over and you get a very cool blacktron build complete in the black and yellow color scheme. Signature elements also included here are the yellow trans-clear cockpit and the printed slope with the blacktron logo.

This vehicle is a model and an RC car as well that can be controlled through an app. Overall it is an awesome build for any fan of classic space themes villainous or heroic.
