Lego Herbie (scaled 1:10)
About this creation


After watching the 'Fully Loaded' Herbie movie, my daughters persuaded me to build a Herbie from Lego. I liked the idea and chose the Nascar race version as a base. I browsed the web for some pictures and used the Exlusives set (10187) as a design base for this moc.



After some research i found out that the Lego Beetle 10187 was not exactly what I needed to make this car work studless the way I had in mind, so I changed the whole thing radically. Roofline, bodywork, arches engine and interior were all radically changed.



To make the race looks complete I added a rollcage, fire extinguishers, special air and fuel tanks and rear spoiler. The special race exhaust is a nice feature too, together with the big racer wheels.



Normally I tend to be very serious on exactly replicating and detailling, but this has been more of a 'loose' build for the fun of it. Still I like the result quite a lot. I hope you do too!

Thanks a lot all! I have to disagree with you Fred. The original 10187 looks really blocky to me.

Fantastic Herbie, a real tribute! About studles, the funny thing is if you have a rounded shape it looks less blocky with studs the with tiles! Find some examples and see for yourself. And this is in fact logical cause a plate with studs has 2 different heights and widths on top, and a tile only one, so the rounded shape looks more smooth from a distance! But we all have our own style, thank God. Greetings, Fred.

Reminds me of childhood memories - "Herbie" and "Dudu", aseries of German movies about a yellow beetle with several gadgets... Hm, are these the predecessors of K.I.T.T.? Like it a lot & 10.000 X better than TLC's!

Awesome! I was a big fan of Herbie when I was a lad, once I saw someone driving a replica down the highway. Anyways great modification of the Lego design, yours looks more compact and VW-ish.

I realy like this one a lot. Quite a difficult model, lot of curves to cover in LEGO...you did an excellent job!!! One other I like a lot about your skills is the speed you build and display models in...I couldn't do it... :-)

Great bug! Yea.. VW Beetle isn't the first car you'll try to capture in LEGOs, that's for sure! But after some experience, it shows what you're really made of! And your version is just perfect

The exterior shaping combined with the detailed interior makes this MOC full of coolness. Very good job, and I really like the roll cage!

Wow man! Great to see a non-truck MOC from you, and it's so beautiful and accurate, of course it's instantly recognizable from the very first site. Shaping a VW Beetle with LEGO bricks isn't an easy job at all, but you've nailed it, great work on the roll cage, now I have to move on to Flickr to see some high quality photos there, well done mate.
