Freshly-premiered on the LEGO website, the Technic motorcycle 42159 Yamaha MT-10 SP will be speeding into stores in a little less than a month. Made from 1,478 pieces, this heavily-detailed mechanical marvel is 17.5″ (44 cm) long and 9.5″ (25 cm) tall. The bike is outfitted with a working suspension, a 4-cylinder engine, and 3-speed transmission, so it’s ready for a spin when you take it off the included display stand. And you can use the LEGO AR app on your device to see the finished model in a whole new light. 42159 Yamaha MT-10 SP will be appearing for purchase on LEGO store shelves and their website on August 1, and will sell for US $239.99 | CAN $319.99 | UK £199.99.

The collaborative community of the LEGO fanbase is fed by builders sharing their techniques and designs. Builder Magnus W was inspired to build a model of his old Yamaha DT50MX based on the Technic frame of builder George Panteleon’s Yamaha XT550. Full of details, plenty of which are personal to the builder, this model makes itself distinct while still hitting all the right notes. I’m sure building it was a nostalgia-flavored treat.
I never had a dirtbike as a kid or as an adult. I’m too prone to cracking my noggin, I guess. George Panteleon shows us what life is like for the less accident-prone among us with this amazing and detailed LEGO Yamaha XT550. George tells us this model was constructed with 460 parts and it is 31cm long and 18cm high. I would feel safer with this LEGO version over the real thing but only just slightly. With my luck, I’d still find a way to bust my fool head while building this. Somehow LEGO accidents are plentiful in this household. You should see the broken nail I’ve endured while building this.
Mike Dung has done an incredible job of recreating the “2013 Snow Miku” version of Hatsune Miku. The posing of the figure is great, but the folds and layering of the shiromuku are really exceptional. It’s too bad he had to make her hair green instead of turquoise but the figure wouldn’t have turned out nearly as well, due to parts constraints. It was a great compromise, as there are limitations, even in LEGO. Mike really turned out a beautiful creation here!
TBB virgin F@bz just finished a fabulous new motorcycle and he’s handing you the keys. Don’t let the custom stickers fool you; this is a 100% LEGO fuel injected suicide machine! If Neo-Tokyo really is about to explode, ride the shockwave in style with the Yamaha Horizon
Well birthdays are lovely and all but we do have a blog to run here and pretty LEGO models to show. I spotted this beauty on Brickshelf today and was highly impressed by Camine’s fine work. There have been a bunch of good motorcycles for minifigs posted before but this is the best Japanese style bike I can remember seeing.
