Transparency for Effect posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesSo basically when the first Collectible Minifigures came out literally a darn decade or so ago, they had some mini LEGO Club magazine with images of five certain models you could make with pieces from your collection; a torii for the Ninja, a stage for the Magician, a saloon door for the Cowboy and Indian, a ramp for the Skater, and of course a display stand. They also had an image for a car for the Clown, but this was instruction-less. Of course, you used to be able to put in the "MINIBUILD" code into LEGOClub.com to get these instructions, but like other instructions of the exact same kind, they seem to be lost to time as far as I can tell. I personally had copies of these previously, but after a transition from the weird iPod place I put them or something, I could not find them anywhere I looked in my PCs or memory banks. And while I've found some LEGO Club instructions through the Wayback Machine, I've yet to relocate these when I've finally gotten the ability to Bricklink the parts to them. Should I contact LEGO about these missing instructions, perhaps? I also was able to find my instructions for one of LEGO Club models I'm not sure is online; the LEGO VIP Minifigure Christmas "BrickFig", to give it a name.

"The Pursuit of Perfection" - slogan of the Lexus brand. I'm now back with my greatest Lego creation ever. A 2010 Lexus GX 460 with EV3. It's a replica of my Dad's car, but this one's in gray with black interior. I made it as much as I could to the real car, thanks to pieces from the Arocs and Porsche set. Features Sariel's 4-speed sequential gearbox controlled by a medium motor All-wheel-drive Independent suspension Rack-and-pinion steering Fake V8 engine Six seats (could not fit a seventh one) with the rear four being foldable Opening side doors, trunk door, and hood. Detailed interior The gearbox and the two differentials in the car like to click while moving (especially on rough terrain) around, but the result was a car that was heavy, slow, but also makes lots of torque. I'm very happy with how this car came out and I couldn't have done it without all of the helpful people on the Lego community and EuroBricks. Thanks especially to my good friend TheMindGarage for never making me give up. Now I can officially call myself a true master builder. Check out this build on my EV3 community account too for more photos and information about it. I would love to make a YouTube video soon about the features of the GX EV3 and footage of me taking this build on some dirt trails in a park. I also want to take a picture of this right next to my Dad's actual car. So please follow this post to check out some stuff I might upload in the future! To finish this post, here's some collages with photos of the GX EV3.
Hey guys, I've built several Lego vehicles with MINDSTORMS® and decided to use my experiences with previous vehicles to build a real car. I was originally looking at building a Ford Escape, but the blueprint scaler measurements came out all wrong, so I turned to a Cadillac CTS-V. I'm a fan of the CTS-V, mostly because of the luxurious ride and smoking performance fused into one car. Here's a picture of the real-life vehicle: Please note beforehand that I am building a model based off the Cadillac CTS-V, but not necessarily an exact replica, partly due to less than a total of 2,000 pieces and partly because I don't have a lot of pieces of just one color I'll try to share the blueprint with measurements tomorrow, and because I am already working on a few builds at once, starting this work on spare parts will be a bit slow for a couple weeks. I hope you guys enjoy the progress! If you'd like to, please check out my previous vehicular builds: Outland3r - Outland3r 2.0 - RX2 Thund3r Truck - AWD MiniKart - Chopp3Rod -
