Ultimate Bond Bug Collection
How much can you love a car? In my case, a lot. Especially this Bond Bug. What you will see here is the result of many hours of construction throughout 2014.
About this creation

Summary




History


The idea of the Bond Bug was to produce a car for the masses, with a futuristic design. Its concurrent was the Austin Mini. Designed by Tom Karen (Ogle Design), it was produced more than 2000 times between 1970 and 1974. This little piece of orange joy had a design no prduction cars had before. The little 4 cylinder was a cracker (faster accelerating than the mini), but the price not (more than the mini). That’s why production stopped in 74.





’Original Bond Bug’


This is the original Bond Bug as a Lego creation. My first Bug was also my first creation on Mocpages, but it didn’t look like one. This is a rebuild of this antic moc …






’Classic Space Bond Bug’


Classic-spacing it was not only putting yellow windows on it and painting it in blue and grey. I rebuilt it completely to make a spaceship. But I don’t know if mine is real CS or only a sort of parody …

In front of it, you can find, well, ME! (could have been me but isn’t in reality), as a CS astronaut. I actually just came back from Spacestock, a music festival, where a lot of other Space Hippies came together to listen to good music …

As you could imagine, this is flower powered. That’s why I’m holding grey and blue flowers in my hand. ;-)










’Steam Bug’


This ... ... thing is to ride in style in 1850. With the massive 25 liter steam engine, it could go from 0 to 1mph in less than 10 minutes. The superlight construction (less than 15 tonnes) also permits this astounding acceleration.

’Bat Bug’


The 70s Batmobiles were boring. That’s what Batman should have cruised in! A BatBug! I got inspired by the very first Batmobile. Some details I reused are the pipes, the bubble window and the black&red colours. This is my favorite Bug modification. Thank you Clayton Marchetti for the idea!










’Post Apoc Bug’


What if there is an apocalypse right now? Only a few will survive, and these survivors will need a special “car” to survive in the post-apocalypse world … I’ve got my very own solution …










’Drag Bug’


I don’t think it is the right car for the job, but if you search ‘Bond Bug Dragster’ on google, you’ll find one …








What's your favorite one?
Thanks a lot everybody for watching, rating, sharing and commenting!
I hope you like my collection. These are the last Bugs I'll produce this year ...

Quoting Deus "Big D." Otiosus I think you captured all of the styles well, except for post-apocalyptic, which looks just military-like to me.
Thanks for the feedback! This post apoc is the first version, because I'm planing to build a MadMax version one day ...

Quoting Jeremy McCreary Yann, Wonderful set of variations on a theme -- in this case, a car I'd never heard of. The Steam Bug's my favorite (great detail, lots of imagination), but they're all fun.
Thanks Jeremy!

Quoting Nick Barrett Steam bug for the win, but they're all groovy! The Bond Bug idea should have worked; I've always found them very appealing and more stable than their Reliant cousins.
Thanks for the nice feedback Nick! I agree, the Bug is such a different car compared to the b*ring Reliants

Quoting Henrik Jensen Hi Yann, this is a unique collection of these Bugs, and they are all great in their own way. However, I have chosen my favorite, namely the Steam Bug. The steam engine at the rear with the high smokestack that threatens to cause the Bug to tip backwards, and the choice of wheels is unbeatable. I love it!
Hi Henrik! I'm glad you liked them, especially the steambug!

Quoting Karol J Really cool collection! Post apoc Bond Bug is the best in my opinion ;)
Thank you karol!

Quoting Matt Bace very creative! A great set of variations on a theme. You've done a great job representing each of the genres while still linking them to their roots as "Bond Bugs".
Thanks for your feedback Matt!

Quoting Gabor Horvath Fantastic collection! My favourite is the steampunk one because its orange colour! I read in your answer, that it's not the original colour, but it's not problem! :D
Thank you Gabor! I'm glad you liked it! And I'm happy you also built a Bug, which was a source of inspiration for mine
 I made it 
  December 11, 2014
Quoting David Roberts A super series. The dragster one is great and as drag racing strips are straight, it would have none of the cornering problems that Bon Bugs normally experience. The Post-apoc version would also be very stable, though I'm not sure how zombie-proof the fibre-glass body work would be! I hope you'll do more in 2015 :D
Thanks a lot david! I agree with the dragster version, but I don't think it is more stable than the normal one! If you have any suggestions for another modification, it would be great! I don't know what I could do next ...

Quoting Clayton Marchetti They are all brilliant! But The Bat Bug is positively my favorite! I love the Canopy. It's perfect. I like the three rocket launchers on the side too. The post Apoc Bug is really awesome too. The addition of tracks make it! Thanks Yann, for the Shout out. I'm so happy to have I've inspired you. A most impressive collection of Bond Bugs!
Hey clayton thanks for stopping by! I've to say you were a great source of inspiration for the batbug, and I'm glad you liked it as much as I like it ;-) And no problem for the shout out; without you I wouldn't have done this one ;-)
