LEGO Land Rover Defender

Building LEGO weapons not really your thing? Perhaps this LEGO Land Rover Defender ($TBA) is more your speed. This amazing creation is a 1:8.5 scale recreation of Rover's legendary truck, built from nearly 2,800 parts, including 7 motors and 3 IR receivers. Yes, you read that correctly: it actually runs, controlled via RF with a LEGO-based controller. Along with the intense AWD system and live axles in the front and rear, it also features a five-speed sequential gearbox with an automatic clutch, a two-speed transfer case, and a whole host of working parts like doors, hood, and tailgate. It's currently up on Cuusoo, and needs over 10,000 supporters to become a reality — and pledging your support is free, so there's no reason not to. [Scouted by JC]
