Tamiya Wild One: Legendary RC buggy brought to life by the Little Car Company

Tamiya’s iconic radio-controlled off-road buggy, the Wild One, is making a comeback – as a real-life electric-powered buggy that can be driven by actual people. A collaboration between Tamiya and The Little Car Company, the 8/10th scale Wild One Max is a near full-sized replica of the original 1/10th scale kit first released by Tamiya in 1985. And the best part? If you want to, you can order the Wild One Max in kit form and build it yourself at home, just like the original.

Lego Technic Jeep Wrangler released

Just in time to make those last-minute Christmas lists, Lego has released their take on iconic Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. With 665 pieces, the set (Lego number 42122) forms part of the more advanced Technic range, which adds a level of technical realism to the models. Which, in the case of a Jeep Wrangler, is quite fitting as the real one allows you to remove the doors and fold the windscreen for some back-to-nature four-wheeling fun.

Classic Fiat 500 joins Lego’s Creator Expert series

Famed toymaker Lego has immortalised the cult-favourite Fiat 500 as the newest addition to its Creator Expert model series. Taking the form of a Fiat 500 D produced from 1960-1965, the 960-piece kit recreates the Italian classic with surprising accuracy. Although only 11 centimetres high, 24cm long and 11cm wide, the Lego kit is almost a perfect 1:20 scale replica of the diminutive 500D.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS Lego crash test is weirdly satisfying

German automotive organisation, ADAC (equivalent of NRMA, RACQ or RACV), has performed a crash test on the Porsche 911 GT3 RS Lego Technic set, and it is sensational - not least because you're unlikely to see a real 911 crash-tested anytime soon. The three-minute video starts with a short time-lapse of the build, followed by setting up the ill-fated Porsche on a remote-controlled mini conveyor belt, with a glimpse of the crash wall ahead.
