Nothing You've Accomplished is as Cool as This: Crawler Town

where is your god now?


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.

It’s self-powered, fully suspended and most of the mechanisms on-board are functional. Hit flickr user DeGobbi’s set for details and a good, old-fashioned mind-blowing.

    I saw this earlier today. Shit is super serious. That write-up is downright hilarious. Ten Internet Points!

    Absolutely incredible. Makes me want to sing.
    When global warming
    And life is making you lonely,
    You can always go Crawler Town
    When you've got worries,
    All the noise and the hurry
    Seems to help, I know, Crawler Town
    Just listen to the music of the windmills in the city
    Linger in the grandstands where the rooftop gardens are pretty
    How can you lose?
    The lights are much brighter there
    You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go to
    Crawler Town, things'll be great when you're in
    Crawler Town, no finer bocce for sure,
    Crawler Town, everything's waiting for you in
    (Crawler Town)

    Some people have WAY too much time on their hands.
    I like it though.

      My thoughts exactly! It's cool, but my wife would surely have me painting or planting something if she saw me with that much down time.

    This never would've happened if those damned fat cats over at Octan hadn't suppressed the elastic car. I've got one, and it's good for 2 MPW (meters per windup).

      I keep bugging the Intesedebate people to create a widget that allows us to show the top-ranked comment of the last 3 days.
      That way we'd be able to highlight work like this on the frontpage.

        I'm liking the new, Bolder "Reply" buttons. Can We get a "explain this, I am confused" button?

      +1 for the Octan reference!

        And another +1!

    Saw this earlier today. Literally awesome. I need more Legos…
    It seems like really awesome things like this have been cropping up more and more lately (on the 'net at least). Lego renaissance?

    Hmmm, at first glance I thought it was a scale model of something for Burning Man 2012.

      I'd think there'd need to be a perpetual haze hovering around the whole thing, to really sell the effect.

    I think I've found it's theme song.[youtube VxLacN2Dp6A youtube]

    Being that the first thing I thought of was a tiny land-based Sealand, I'm gonna go ahead and unimaginatively dub it "Legoland".
    Well, it was that or "Land-o-Land"; give thanks.

    golf clap.
    Do not play with Crawler Town. Do not stare directly at Crawler Town.

    Wow! that is amazing!!!! Makes me want to break out the Lego's!

    Man this thing is hitting crazy now. The designer/builder/AFOL has some other epic creations. Large scale is always fun!

    Caution: Crawler Town may suddenly accelerate to dangerous speeds.

      What's the problem with the reply button?

      1. FuzzyPlushroom Avatar

        Nothing, except this one time – it didn't switch from the "Post a new comment" box on the bottom to a reply, even though I clicked it twice, and I didn't notice that there wasn't an arrow or a "Posting…" faux-button. Partly my fault, partly a one-time thing. Hasn't happened before or since, so I'm not worried.

      It's a Toyota product?!?

    That is perfect, my son loves star wars lego and frequently bugging me over it – your posting has cleared a number of my thoughts. Time for more browsing!
