Your Favorite Engine, Now in Lego Form

Hate that the only time you get to see your engine is when you have the hood up? Now you can have a smaller, custom model to keep on a shelf, a bookcase or wherever you want.

The best part? These detailed models are made entirely out of Lego.

Replica Motorsport sells assembled "crate motors" that includes a Mazda B6ZE, a Ford Modular V8 and even a Cummins 6BT. Prices for most of the preassmebled models start at around $130 to $150, with special DIY kits going on sale "about once a month."

Don't see an engine you want a model of? Replica Motorsport even takes custom requests.

Visit Replica Motorsport's Instagram or website for more information.

I'm sorry, did you say one hundred and thirty dollars for a handful of Legos?

It is a bit much, they typically run 5-10 cents per brick.  I don't see any of those that are over 100-200 bricks.

I have a 1/24 scale slant 6 in my parts box. Has headers and 3 down draft carbs. Needs a better home too.

Would be super exciting, except 1- no type I. And 2-$$$,$$$,$$$. 
 

I need to get my legos back from little bro and see what I can do.

$150 sounds like a steal compared to the Legos I’m saving up for...

Think of it as a piece of custom artwork not as a "lego kit", because that's what you're paying for.

They don't seem to have a 13B!

I'd like to know what parts they use to model a turbo.

But yeah, you're paying for the design/engineering to figure out how to make lego parts look like an engine, moreso than the parts themselves. Still a bit rich for my blood.

Edit: looks like they also come assembled for that price, and they had cheaper limited-edition kits that you put together yourself. I'd rather assemble it myself anyway, being a Lego fan.

Looks like a small wheel with a hose wrapped around it.

That's most of the fun anyway.

Maybe if they're being produced by Lego who can spec whatever they want. But for one-offs like this, you need to source the parts and that will cost you more than 5-10 cents each. Especially if there are unusual pieces in there, and I can see at least some custom paintwork.

Looks like the DIY kits are a little less expensive - they had a B series for $34.99 and a 13B for $59.99.

It's steep, but for a super niche talking piece it seems not crazy.

I do enjoy they have a cherry picker to go with it.
