LEGO Crawler Town

Posted by admin in Cool, Interesting with 34 Comments

Who says the end of civilization has to be totally drab? Dave DeGobbi’s massive eco-punk crawler city brightens up the post-apocalypse, looking like a Mardi Gras float designed by Master Blaster himself.
Degobbi’s epic LEGO sculpture isn’t just some pretty colossus – it has a history, too.

Here’s DeGobbi’s description of his crawler town:
Crawler town roams the barren wastes of a post steam-punk world after cataclysmic climate change do to excessive coal use. Several such cities exist but Crawler town is the most popular due to the Aero 500 hydrogen fuel cell Air races that are held. Many people travel the wastes to Crawler town for vacation and to enjoy rare luxuries like Pizza, fresh vegetables and Beer. Travelling the wastes in search of minerals and aquifers ( vital for survival) the mobility of the city keeps it away from the vicious sand storms of the wastes

Details about the MOC – I really enjoyed building this one! Its started out as going to be a steam-punk land dreadnought/battleship but evolved into a roaming city where self sustainability and Eco efficiency became the theme. I ended up calling it “Eco-punk” due to its Steamy inspired roots. Several playable features include functional powered treads for movement , full suspension and front and rear steering. Working crane, hanger slides for planes and lift from upper and lowers levels.

New construction for more living space . Steel studs due to lack of trees.

Roof top gardens to maximize sun and rain gathering . Tomatoes and pumpkins

Solar panel power collection and wind turbines in the top left of the photo. Provides most of the power for the city but the crawler still need water for the reactor for mobility.

Main grandstand for the Aero 500 air race. Refreshments and food are behind. And the only known Bocce field in the northern wastes!

    mmm, sorry, but this is a rather palid rip-off of Philip Reeve’s Mortal Engines series. see here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mortal_Engines_quartet for descriptions genuinely scary post-apocalyptic mobile cities.

    This is really among the greater content regarding people who I’ve keep reading that theme nowadays. Superb function.

  26. Great article, well crafted I must say.

  27. Air Jordan says:

    Hmmm web page. I will spend less this for future reading. However, I’m troubled by the last point. In my analyses this is not ususally observed. I think you have overextended yourself on unworthy options.

  28. Goedkope Herbalife says:

    I like Lego, but not have time for something big like that!
