  1. Hi there, I want to share my latest version of my LEGO BMW M3 (E30) with you. I'm interested in getting your feedback. I've also made a video, where I demonstrate the functions and which sows the details a bit better. I hope you like it. I've also made instructions, available on Rebrickable.
  2. KMPMOCS

    [MOC] KMP's Vehicle MOCS

    Decided to take inspiration from fellow builders and put all my past & future builds into one thread, so I wouldn't feel bad about having to create new threads everytime I had something new to upload. The first pictures are the builds that got me started back in 2017, and ones at the bottom are the more recent mocs that I've made. Jaguar XJR-12 Completed in January 2021 McLaren Senna Completed in January 2021 Lexus LFA Modification of an earlier version that I built back in 2019 Bentley Mulliner Bacalar Completed in February 2021 Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut Completed in February 2021
  3. Hi everyone, So I’ve been thinking and have decided to create a new topic for everyone’s 8 wide Speed Champion Mocs! This is because I find it a bit annoying to create a new topic for every Moc, so hopefully people here will be happy to contribute in terms of submitting your own Mocs or to just share your thoughts everyone’s builds. I am currently working on a Bugatti Chiron in 8 wide so I’ll post that here soon. If anyone wants to start this thread off by posting some pictures, please go ahead and hopefully this can become a permanent topic!
  4. Hi guys, I'm addicted to Lego and MOC cars collection, I built a custom-made furniture, hand-made, to exhibit my models, I designed by myself and realized in 3 months (in the free time of course). Now I'm looking for a model to fill the last 1:8 space. I was thinking to Shelby GT500 1:8 that i love, but I already own two Mustang including a moc of shelby made by lego set 10265. As Alternative maybe the Aston Martin GT3 but I'm not so convinced. Maybe I'd better wait for the 2022 Lego 1:8 model? Any suggestion about that? I'm also thinking to replace fiat 500 in the future, when I will fall in love with another 1:12 model PS thanks to brunojj1 for helping to fill two of the spaces
  5. The following creations were built to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the 1999 Lego Racers computer game. Pieces new and old have come together to form these newly revised versions of the 8 boss cars. Please enjoy! 1) Captain Redbeard As you can see, Captain Redbeard's new ride uses the microbuild of his ship from set #40290 as a base for this off-road beast of a racer. But it still retains the large exhausts and rear mounted pirate flag from his original car. The sails make this the tallest vehicle in the collection so far. .
  6. I've been making a number of Speed Champions-scaled cars lately and I didn't want to spam up the forum with a bunch of threads, so I decided to put 'em all here! They're posted in the approximate order that I built them (many were worked on at the same time). Original Builds: 1972 Datsun 240z The color scheme is based on the 1972 Ontario Motor Speedway pace car livery. I'm most happy with the angled cabin and the dual exhaust. 1970 Oldsmobile 442 W30 The peak performance year for the 442! The ram air scoops are simply represented by 1x4 tiles - an older version of this build had a much more complex build for this section, but it made the car too tall, and the overall silhouette and shaping was more important to me. I'm most happy about the radiator grill and the tail lights. v.1.1 update: lower profile mirrors now that the little light cover piece comes in yellow. 1968 Oldsmobile 442 I built the '70 first, but my dad's old car was a '68 so I felt like making this one as well. I think it turned out better, even. I do intend to change the vent just in front of the windscreen to make it a little more subtle. My favorite parts of this build are the side stripes and the 1/2 plate-raised portion of the hood. v.1.1 update: more subtle vent in front of the windscreen. 1970 Chevrolet Camaro RS/Z28 Still my favorite car I've ever done. The seed piece for this build was the ice skate, which immediately jumped to mind when I saw the split bumper on the R/S version of the 2ng gen Camaro. 1969 AMC Super Stock AMX Kind of an odd car; a 2-seater steel body muscle car with a short wheelbase. Essentially, a shortened Javelin. I built this in order to use the 2 blue wheel arches that came with the Ferrari Ultimate Garage set. v.1.1 update: removed the sloped shoulders to make the build sleeker and more stable and consistent. 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Yeah, not so much of a "speed" car. We bought a used one as a cheap second car a few months ago, so I was inspired to build it, so I'm throwing it in here anyway. This is easily the most complex, ridiculous build I've ever done. It has 265 pieces, 117 of which are attached sideways or upside-down. 1972 Datsun 240z A street car variant of the 240z I built before. Fender-mounted mirrors, simple non-sport wheels, single exit exhaust, no splitter, no spoiler, no livery. 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda This one took a really long time from concept to completion. I'm very happy with the color scheme and shaping, but I think it needs about an extra stud of length at the hood maybe? Will probably re-examine soon. v.2.0 update: the previous version of this was always my least favorite car that I had built. It felt too short, too stubby, too low to the ground. It was just overall too small, especially placed next to any other SC car, and a bit... chunky. This is a complete overhaul and rebuild. I kept the old cabin, headlight/grill, and taillight designs. I lengthened the rear deck (and entire car) by one stud and increased its ride height by one plate. I redesigned the sides to be sleeker and accentuate the rocker panels better. The front and rear lower fascias were rebuilt as well to be a little sleeker and to highlight the exhaust pipes. The interior also had to be completely redone to accommodate the method used to build the new sides. Though it may look very similar at a glance, I believe this only has about 50% of its pieces in common with the original design. I sure like it a lot more now! 1967 Pontiac GTO I had the idea for the taillights from a failed attempt at a Firebird and it all came together from that. All of the metal trim on this one is flat silver instead of light gray, which is neat. It also has a more-detailed-than-usual cabin, with a reclining seat, shifter, wheel, gauge, and a hood-mounted tachometer visible from inside. Overall, one of my favorites. 1970 Chevrolet C10 with tiny house The truck is a classic C10 short bed. I'm quite happy with the gap between the cabin and the bed. The tiny house is hinged and has a full interior: a small kitchen with a microwave and a sink, a bathroom with a toilet and shower, folding chairs and a table that store on the wall, and stairs (with built-in storage) that lead to a lofted bed. Outside, it has a porch with stairs, gas and battery power, and folding chocks to support it when detached (or opened). 1969 AMC Hurst/SC Rambler The livery was a ton of fun on this one. The arrow pointing to the scoop is the detail that made me want to attempt to build it in the first place. I also enjoyed the little details like the red, white, and blue headrest and the blue wheels. 1970 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler The geometry of the fascia is so fascinating on this car that I just had to try it. I really like the colors and form factor of this one. The taillights were interesting, too: friction-fitted with flexible rubber Technic elements. 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 (John Wick's car) I built this when I was getting hyped for John Wick 3 to come out. Finally had to try my hand at a Mustang. My favorite elements here are the raked cabin and the chin spoiler. 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback / Shelby GT500 (Eleanor from the 2000 remake of Gone in 60 Seconds) My father-in-law saw my John Wick Mustang and loved it because he thought it was Eleanor. I told him it's not, but I can certainly make that one, too! I'm very happy with the shaping on the hood, plus getting the fascia to look right with the extra fog lamps. 1969 Dodge Coronet Super Bee The official 1970 Charger was a really cool build, but I really wanted its tail stripe to be brick-built. My desire to build such a thing led to this model instead, a Super Bee in classic yellow/black livery. This was my first attempt at double side-by-side headlights, using the somewhat classic binoculars technique. I also tried angling the whole tail to give it a sloped rear deck, but it just looks... saggy. That needs revising, I think. I really love the taillights, though! v.1.1 update: removed the angled tail and swapped the fenders for the newer Speed Champions ones, because the old City ones are ridiculously rare and expensive. 1964 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt This model took me longer to design, from start to finish, than anything else I've made. It took so long to figure out how I even wanted to attempt the bodywork, much less accomplish it. I'm really pleased with it, though! I really like the front fenders and the fascias. 1964 Ford Fairlane Gasser I have wanted to try a gasser for a while. This one was really fun! I removed the hood, the "chrome", and the bumpers. I added a solid bar rear bumper and a lifted solid front axle. The front received a moon tank, and the exhaust was routed through the fenders. I finished it off with even fatter drag tires on the rear, angle cut velocity stacks, and a show car color scheme. 1970 Chrysler 300 Hurst Edition I really wanted to try this one for the Hurst color scheme: white, dark tan, and gold. I went with a medium nougat interior, too. The big challenges here were the hood bulge shaping and the rear fender covers. I couldn't use the same technique from the Fairlane for the rear fenders because they have that gold trim on them, so I came up with a new method that involves bars nested into cheese slopes. 1969 Chevrolet Nova SS I am SO HAPPY with how this one came out! The big thing here is that the cabin and rear deck are vertically offset by 1/2 a plate in order to smooth out the profile, which required a custom chassis so it would still fit a minifig. I'm really happy with the shaping on the front fascia, but my favorite detail is actually the sloped rear edge of the hood bulge. 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T I wanted to build a purple car for a long time, and somebody on Rebrickable showed me their recolor of the official SRT Demon in purple, so it inspired me to try a classic Challenger. I wanted to try something new for the headlights, since binoculars can be a bit clunky. My favorite detail is the use of light gray flag pieces to fill a gap between the taillights and the rear bumper. 1970 AMC Rebel "The Machine" Every time I build an AMC, I gotta do the optional American color scheme. The livery is super interesting on this one, and I love the combination hood scoop/external tachometer. My favorite detail is the R/W/B stripes in the front fascia. 1979 Ford Mustang This turned out to be a tricky one, especially since I really wanted to build a car in dark red, which introduced a lot of parts limitations. The internals of this thing are a lot of weird connections jammed into a very tight space, especially since it still has a full interior for a minifig. It's also not any specific model or trim package, because I wanted to build several iconic elements of the model year: the window louvers, hood scoop, black trim stripe, sun roof, and spoiler. 1981 Chevrolet El Camino An El Camino is probably the car I've gotten the most requests for ever, so here's an '81 - specifically, the one that appeared in the series finale of Breaking Bad, and of course the standalone El Camino. This was a bit of a collaborative build, as some of the best ideas (like building the hood stripes sideways) came from a friend on another forum. I had some fun making the minifig to match, too. "Death Proof" 1971 Chevrolet Nova Since I made a Nova a little bit ago (February, I think?), it made sense to build Stuntman Mike's unique Death Proof Nova as well. It's a very similar build, with a couple of things changed out of necessity in the color swap, but I also redesigned the front fascia. As much as I love how the front end was built on the original Nova model, someone on Rebrickable (correctly) pointed out that the aggressive angle looked more like a Chevelle than a Nova. This new build feels less clever, but is undoubtedly more accurate to the real car. The graphics on the hood are custom UV printed because I don't really like stickers. 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle This one was modeled after a car my dad's wife owned when she was young, a lime '71 Chevelle SS 350 coupe with a white top and stripes. This was a super fun build with some novel shaping, such as the gently sloped hood bits, the 1/5 stud recessed rear deck, and the bodywork under the rear bumper. Also, I was really happy to finally build an original design in lime green. I really like the citrus-toned high impact colors. 1973 Buick Gran Sport I think this is my new favorite build. There were a lot of curves and angles to figure out and it was a very fun to design. I redesigned the rear of the cabin several times until I was satisfied with the pillars, but they're now the highlight of the model, I think. Almost every part of this build required some kind of weird trick to make it work the way I wanted. 1983 Toyota AE86 Sprinter Trueno I tried this one a few different ways before I landed on this design, including 5 and 7-wide, but I feel like the classic 6-wide ended up getting me the most streamlined, finished-looking result. I'm particularly happy with the rear side window geometry - that's a 1x2 - 2x4 bracket angled against the top of the lower 18 degree slope, perfectly filling the 1/2 plate gap between it and the adjacent, higher 18 degree slope and giving me a surface to attach the C pillar tiles to. Also has the requisite paper water cup inside. 1967 Ford Mustang (10265) I will confess, I am ridiculously excited to show this one to you guys. It's my most ambitious model so far. I really wanted to replicate the 10265 Creator Expert set, including the mechanism to raise the rear axle, and I did just that! I also made the various hot rod add-on bits as well. 2015 Jeep Renegade Another unique challenge, building a car like this in olive green! The idea for this one came from the realization that I could use a white Technic cross axle for the iconic X-shaped taillights. I'm not sure it's my BEST build ever, but given the limitations of scale and color, I'm very pleased with it! 1963 Chevrolet Nova SS Well, I didn't want the '64 Fairlane gasser to get lonely, so I built it something to race against. This is a drag racing Nova with a lot of modifications, and one killer feature: the front bodywork hinges open to access the engine bay! Despite this, I'm proud to say it's a very sturdy, strong model. 1977 Pontiac Trans Am I've actually been wanting to do this car for over a year now, I just never got around to finishing up a design. But here it is! Like some of my previous models, the roof of the cabin is raked back to give it clean lines, but that was much more difficult to achieve on this one. I'm most happy with the simplest elements here, such as the taillights and exhaust pipes. 1969 Dodge Daytona This has been one of my most requested builds, so I've finally built one. I re-built the nose several times, trying different techniques, before I settled on this: a subtle, angled hood, capped with a combination of 45 degree double slopes and curved wedges. The rear is pretty intricate and fragile, making this one very much a "display only" model. 1965 Ford Mustang Station Wagon These are so goofy, I couldn't help but want to build one! I chose a pretty classic Mustang color scheme that allowed me to use a lot of pearl gold, which is really striking in person. The interior is 2-tone medium nougat and dark orange, too. Sculpting the recessed sides / intakes was a really fun challenge. 1999 Mercury Cougar I mainly built this because it was my partner's very first car, but it was fun tackling a car shaped so differently than what I usually build. Plus, I finally got to do something in dark green! I'm especially pleased with how the headlights and taillights turned out on this one. 1985 Toyota Hilux 4 x 4 Marty's truck from Back To The Future! I started with the fenders and sculpted everything else out around those. This build uses 51 SNOT bricks and brackets, nearly 1/5 of all of its pieces. The wheels have independent suspension, though the large tires prevent much travel. 1969 Chevrolet Corvette C3 This was inspired by how much I disliked LEGO's official Speed Champions C3. In fact, I started working on it on the 2nd of May, immediately after images of the official build were revealed! I wanted to take my own shot at it in my preferred 6-wide scale. I focused largely on the aspects I thought came up short on the official one: the roof line, the windscreen, the curvature of the rear deck, and the shaping of the bodywork over the fender arches. I'll be honest, I'm completely thrilled with how this one turned out! I think it's one of my best and I almost made a new thread just to show this one off. Oh, also, the rear deck clip assembly that holds the luggage rack is easily reversible so the rack can be added or removed in seconds. 1940 GMC Pickup Truck This is pretty outside of my ordinary range, but a viewer on my LEGO Twitch stream requested it, so here we are! It was pretty fun to shape, and I've never prominently used bright light yellow before. I'm particularly happy with the headlights, which took a while to solve. Modifications: everything below is a modification of somebody else's design; in this case either LEGO or my favorite builder Jonathan Elliott. That is to say, I am not the creator of any of the following original designs, I have only tweaked and modified them. 1966 Ford GT40 From set 75881. I really love this car! 75881 is my favorite Speed Champions set so I didn't want to change much - I just wanted to lower it, because the original car is legendarily short (the "40" in GT40 refers to a height of 40 inches/102cm). The smaller City-scale wheels I used are extremely uncommon a quantity of only 1 was provided in just 1 Architecture set (but as of 2020, Pearl Gold is now available and much more common). Oh, and despite being dramatically lowered, it still fits a minifig! 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 From set 75888. Very minor mods here: I just enclosed the cabin in glass using 1 x 2 x 3 panels and added spokes to the wheels using the Technic 3L axle with a stud on the end. Enclosing the cabin this way was sort of a proof of concept that I later used on the Olds 442 builds above. 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400SV Original by Jonathan Elliott. I love the original model and wanted one of my own, so I reverse engineered it from breakdown photos he'd posted, and then started changing things to suit me better. My modified version fits a minifig and has a tan leather interior, flush rocker panels, new rocker panel intake scoops, chrome exhaust, and some slightly altered connections and structure. Again, all credit to Jonathan Elliott for the original design and for his blessing to show off my modified version. Ford Model A hot rod From set 75875. The original had a really ridiculous rake due to the giant rear tires and lowered rear axle. I leveled the axles, chopped/dropped the top, lowered the engine bay, and changed the exhaust to more of an open header design (though with only 2 pipes per side, maybe it's more like two open collectors). I retained the swappable engine feature, and added a third engine with velocity stacks. 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 From set 75874. The original is my least favorite Speed Champions set by far, so this build has some extensive revisions. Most importantly, I lowered the body, reduced (but retained) the rake, moved the cabin back, and gave it a rear windshield. 1970 Dodge Charger R/T From set 75893. I like this model a lot, but I don't love the tiny little rear window, so I made a new one with staggered cheese slopes. v.1.1 update: brick-built the red stripe on the tail, too. 1965 Ford Mustang / Hoonicorn V1 Original by LEGO as a gift to Ken Block, though this is based more on its prototype and the original concept art. I really wanted this to become an official set (and a lot of us thought it would), but when it didn't make the cut, I modified the heck out of it and made my own. This is more of a MOC than a mod at this point, but it does retain the original proportions and overall shaping, so it's more fair to call it a mod still. I'm most happy with the shaping of the tail and rear fascia. The headlights required some extreme lateral thinking, but it's a working, legal connection. v.1.1 update: sleeker C pillar, since the "hollow 45 degree slope" piece now comes in black. 1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale Original by Jonathan Elliott. Again, he's my favorite builder, and I wanted to take another crack at one of his amazing models. At first, I only wanted to modify it to allow a minifig to fit, but I ended up changing quite a bit: the sides are rounded, the rear deck is a bit extended and less gappy, the tail is more rounded and indicators are added, the exhaust was reshaped, and the louvers were re-done to use panel pieces. Of course an interior was added with textured seat, wheel, and gauges. 1980 Chevrolet K5 Blazer From set 75810. Just a recolor and stud delete, mainly. I really loved the K5 but didn't want the whole set, and teal has been making such a comeback, this seemed like a fun choice. I did have to redesign the internals for the hood/grill around the limited part selection in this color, though.
  7. Hello. This forum is about classic car MOC builds and custom classic car MOC builds. Basically any car from the 90's and below can be on this forum. You can put your classic or custom classic car MOCs here on this forum too. And you can talk about classic cars. This forum is made to inspire classic car fans all around the LEGO space. And here are the things I would like to ask you to do. Do not bully or use profanity. And please do not be hesitant to report profanity. Please be nice to beginner builders who put there builds here. This is my first time creating a forum so if I mess something up or if you have any suggestions on what can improve this forum just let me know.
  8. Hi, this topic is something different. Here you can share either designs for cars, or single parts of your design. Such as a central column, seats or even a complete drivetrain. If you have something interesting to share, something innovative, stylish or complex, feel free to display it! I'll start off with a center column design of mine. Here's a picture linked via Flickr: Center_Column_Render_202194 | Scoar Sonander | Flickr As you can see, the upper fairing is tilted at a slight angle so as not to interfere with the bottom one. This makes the center column 3 studs wide, it looks very cool and has space for a wire or an axle leading through it.
  9. Hi everyone, This is a recent build of mine. After the adventure in the jungle and among the Ancient Amazon Ruins, Johnny Thunder and his friends made it back with the boat. Gabarros had left after Johnny paid him and the adventurers are loading the cars to travel back to the airport. Senor Palomar was killed by Achu and Rudo Villano had escaped with a raft on the river. Enraged by seeing the Adventurers after what happened in the Jungle, he stabs Harry Cane. Johnny Thunder is angered by this and grabs his sword and attacks Rudo. How will this end? Feedback and questions are appreciated.
  10. Thought I'd collect my growing series of six-wide builds into one place as my feed on Flickr is getting pretty dense. I'd struggled to get the Speed Champions cars proportioned to my liking (I ended up with slightly outrageous 10-wide P1 prototypes), meanwhile my Flickr feed has a continuous drizzle of inspiring builds done around the slightly smaller City Scale fenders and tires. Somehow this scale just works. While there are a good many builders on Flickr working at this scale and all their work inspires in some way, I would like to call out ER0L, Tom Netherton and Adrian Barbour aka BrickMonkey in particular as their approaches, shared designs and instructions went a long way to kick-starting this series of building for me. I've adopted the techniques they honed which has given me a great platform to come up with some of my own tricks. Also, there's sort of an easter-egg in all of them; rather than filling the inner spaces of the chassis with big bricks a la Speed Champions, I like to tuck in plate-built details like engines and chassis structures. These are all up on Flickr > Prototyp with plenty of photos of each if you'd like to check them out more closely. Will update here with new builds from time to time. Hakosuka and McLaren instructions are available at Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/users/prototyp/mocs/ 1972 Datsun 510 A cooler version of my college car (if I weren't so broke the and had actually hopped up my Dime); fat MiniLites tucked into some flares, front and rear skirt work, and a twin-cam engine swap under the hood. Nissan Skyline KCG10 '72 Early work on the 510 ended up developing into the even cooler, lower, sleeker, meaner Skyline GTR "Hakosuka" McLaren P1 Unrelated in every way to TLG's Speed Champions P1; very long, very low, very curvy... Even the color is opposite. Particularly proud of the trick nose build and that TT wing plate as a rear diffuser (which, interestingly enough the new 720S Speed Champions model also uses) Built up in some colorways. Ferrari 458 Italia Distantly-related to BrickMonkey's 'chibi' style Ferrari 458 caricature. Like the McLaren, this one is also quite long and low. There's a plate-built V8 tucked in the mid-rear, too. (will need to build this one in more colors, too) Honda NSX Type R Adapted from Tom Netherton's Acura NSX with a new nose, new tail, and a v6 under the rear glass. Ford Mustang GT350 Another Tom Netherton-based build. His work on the nose and side panels is fantastic stuff. I reworked chassis to move the whole roof/cockpit area back a stud in order to play up the long-hood coupe proportions. Under the hood is just enough space for a hint of plate-built V8 and the GT's strut-tower cross brace. The tail is extended and incorporates a custom exhaust and diffuser setup. Porsche 935 '77 This MOC started out as a build of a 911 street car but got sidetracked by the desire to make something a little more outrageous (and to use the Speed Champions fender/tire combo). The turbofan wheel covers and front suspension camber are small design and technique triumphs. Some good bones here for a series of stickered replicas. And yes, there's a turbocharged, air-cooled flat 6 engine under the rear hood, too.
  11. As some of you may know, I already have a topic for my sport cars. Why not have another one for regular city cars? The latest LEGO Ideas contest "BUILD A VINTAGE CAR TO CRUISE THE STREETS OF LEGO® MODULAR BUILDINGS!" was a perfect occasion to get back to building after a break. After all, 6-wide cars is what I mainly build, so why not take a shot at a contest? Choosing a subject matter for an entry was the first step. In the end, I (like many others) decided to build a delivery truck. I was able to complete it in about a week, and looking back at it, I think I may have overcomplicated things as I tend to. Anyway, I am really pleased with the end result, especially with the shaping of the fenders. It fits one minifig, 3 crates and a hand truck. The roof and the hood are detachable, and there's a brick-built V engine. Comments and critique are welcome. The model is available at Mecabricks, or you can download an .lxf file. UPD: PDF instructions are now available at my Bricksafe here.
  12. This is my first try at making a tread and posting pictures, so I hope I do it right. It all started with me making a very oldschool 2015 Sauber car out of ancient lego I found in a tray in the basement. 20190310_161317 by Martin Hansen, on Flickr Later lego started making real versions of F1 cars and I remade my 2015 Sauber. 20190310_161340 by Martin Hansen, on Flickr 20190310_161434 by Martin Hansen, on Flickr Then during the 2018 season I started making all of the teams cars and I finally finished the project, right in time for the 2019 season to begin next week The cars were made with parts available to me and might not be the perfect match, but they are good enough for me.

    [MOC] Space Cars

    Hi everyone, I've build some vehicles one month ago. I forgot to post the pictures on Eurobricks (sorry ). This SC-4RT model is great to use to fly from city to city. This SC-12PT model can be used to fly from city to city and can do short distances in outer space. The SC-3PT model can be used to fly from city to city and can do short distances in outer space. This is the limited edition of the model. For more pictures, please look into my Flickr album. Sander
  14. I'm amazed there isn't already a discussion topic for this, but yea, let's use this thread to talk Pixar films and related things. Personally, I love most Pixar films. Y'all probably know that the Toy Story series is my favorite trilogy of films. The next Pixar film coming out is Monsters University, which is Pixar's first prequel film. There is also talks of Finding Nemo 2 coming out in the near future. But, I particularly started this topic today as news just came out that the Cars spinoff, Planes, has been announced to be released in theaters on August 9th, 2013. It's kind of ironic as this is not going to be a film produced by Pixar. I will not be looking forward to Planes after the disaster that was Cars 2. Oh, and I really wonder if they'll make Planes LEGO sets.
  15. Hey there, I wonder if anyone is interested in seeing smaller and or bigger Lego engine pieces. You know those light bluish grey engine block pieces, connecting rods and yellow piston pieces? Smaller and bigger versions of those. Smaller versions can be used to put inside a moc built locomotive, boat or possibly a semi or even pneumatic engines. Bigger ones could be used for huge ships or pneumatic engines. So what do you guys think about this? I could design these things and open a bricklink store for you to buy. Let me know, I think it's a useful idea...
  16. Hi again, is a tradition for me, in this days, post at least 4 cars/vehicles i made in the ending year (yeah im that lazy...). All years I try to make something diferent, this year instead of making a car and a minifig, i take existing minifigs and create a car for them...next year i dont have any idea what woud i do XD... First one, the Spider, a classic bucket hot rod for a creepy and lovely girl. This one is a electric sport car for the city...well, in the beggining i have the idea to update the classic yellow sport car 6530 of the 90´s...with some speed champion windscreen, but i dont like how it going...so i end up wiht this, just simple plus somethings I like to try... This "no holes" thing in the top view is what im messing around....ther still holes, but not on top. This year when the stranger things set comes out, i want to make one sherrif 4x4 by my own, and i want to try this mudguards.....the problem is i have to fix 5, 6 and 7 wide studs XD, lego is not odd number friendly, but was fun And last one, if we ae talking about vehicles for characters....well, after 6 years making some cars was time for A BATMOBILE... As always, C&C are wellcome, hope you like it, Merry Xmas and happy new year! and one more year i have linked text, but this year i cant fix it....i will edit if some one help me XD, sorry

    60053 vs. 60113

    I know you guys probably know about my bigotry towards automobiles that are 6 studs wide. However, when it comes to race cars, I think it works. I own both 60053 and 60113 and they are very nice vehicles. I would like to hope that the race cars that we are supposed to receive in 2020 start a trend of making race cars for Lego City. I do worry that it won't happen since Speed Champions exists. Though Speed Champions seems to be targeted towards OFOLs than CFOLs.

  22. Hi, The following pictures are a write up on flickr about how Cars/Motorbikes were designed fitting in the "classic Town" concept from 1978 over the years since the introduction of the minifig. Now while some say "car moccing" and "classic Town" are two different things, actually, i have good reason to believe they are one and the same. Cars will always influence the scale, detail and vibe of a town. Since they are the "tough nut" to crack building wise in any layout given the limited space, i worked on these ideas for over 4 years with several attempts (going from 8 wide to 4 wide even) of getting it to fit well with each other. Along the way i discovered several new techniques i want to present here swiftly, which might be inspirational despite whatever approach is made or desired. I might also use this thread to post more or more detailed shots of techniques that can be very useful if there is a fair demand for it (rendering takes long^^) Have fun, click for larger views through the pictures on my flickr account (simply click on the first pic and then move to your left on flickr). no 1 / 13 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr no 2 /13 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr no 3 /13 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr no 4 /13 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr no 5 /13 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr no 6 /13 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr no 7 /13 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr no 8 /13 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr no 9 /13 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr no 10 /13 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr no 11 /13 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr no 12 /13 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr no 13 /13 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr
  23. Would you want to see a reboot of the multifaceted, everything automobile centric Racers theme? If so, what lines or subthemes would you like to see introduced or return for such a revival? Introduced in 2002 and ended in 2012, with Speed Champions informally replacing it three years later, I've always been fascinated by the theme in concept, as its many subthemes were so varied and distinct from one another in a way unlike many other lines' handling of their own subthemes. Though many Racers subthemes from then were too odd or goofy for my likening, I think Lego could do better with such a conceptually restraint-less line nowadays, with much room for a great number of possibilities.

    [MOC] Rally Bug

    Baby Porsche or VW Beetle tuning? This is a fictitious race car, I hope you like it :) You can support it on Lego Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/68cb5ef6-6e2c-40fc-9dca-0e4b7f3fe64a It is a studless build in Speed Champions scale, but with City wheels. I used only standard LEGO elements, the slopes with stickers are part of the set called 1968 Ford Mustang.

    Tips for Realistic Vehicle Design

    Hello! I have never built any sort of custom LEGO Vehicle, but I really am interested in doing so. The problem for me is design and scale. How do you make a car that looks good, but is also proportionate to Minifigs? The kind of cars I want to build are modern, stock sedans, SUVs, buses, and trucks. I am mainly asking for tips, but if you have pictures of your own custom cars, I would greatly appreciate it!
