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.

OMG, that is freaking amazing. Makes me want to bring out my giant tub of Legos. Too bad I don’t own enough to do anything as badass as this.
Ok…this is tempting me to pull out my old LEGO’s now…
so when does this kit come out, i want.
I still love Lego, the stuff my mum gave away when I left home would cost thousands today 🙁
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 maybe one of the biggest, stupidist wastes of time I have ever seen.
this would be awesome as a kit.
contact the Lego Corporation, see if they’ll do it.
for that matter go to the lego website post it
keep up the good work
This is really among the greater content regarding people who I’ve keep reading that theme nowadays. Superb function.
Great article, well crafted I must say.
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.
I like Lego, but not have time for something big like that!
very nice post
I’m impressed, I must say.
Wonderful LEGO Crawler Town.
Cool! Hard job to make it!
