A few weeks ago, I went to a Lego exhibition. And when I walked around I saw some fimilar minifigs from the first lego racers game. I was like, hey, lets buy them. When I got home I came with the idea to collect them all, and build the cars as well! (except for circuit 7, which didn't bother me)

If you dont remember the game, check out this link.

So I begun searching the internet and found out that there was a site called Bricklink. On this site, sellers from over the whole world sold lego parts. First up I had to find all of the minifigs. So I ran upstairs to find Achu and Baron von Barron in a old box of lego. All of the other minifigs were pretty easy to get. Except for a few. Rob 'n' Hood and Gypsy Moth were so hard to find. Most were expensive or heavily damaged. So for Rob 'n' Hood I found a temporarly replacement. So I already got some parts so far, and I started to build the non-bosses cars first. These have similar parts and are easyer to build.

Minifigs that I lack so far:
- Original Rob 'n' Hood
- Gypsy Moth
- Sam Sinister (with the black top hat)

Here are the photos what I got so far:

Circuit 1's Minifigs from right to left: Captain Redbeard, Governor Broadside, Rob 'n' Hood, Ann Droid and Pharaoh's Mummy

I'm curious what you guys think so far :)

EDIT: If everything goes well at the post office, I will receive the last batch of parts today which allows me to finish the cars tonight. (hopefully)

Having played the hell out of this game when I was a kid (not just a CD rip, but the real thing, with original box and all) I can honestly say I'm very excited to see the outcome of this. The figures and cars you've done so far look amazing!

Nice to see all that. Me and Pure have build the bosses from Lego Racers 1 for many years, also Veronica Voltage. If you want, I put the pictures here from our Lego Racers cars kajeuter. :)

my second favorite PC racing game, ever.
making so much characters with so many different cool cars.
always felt better and better when playing that game.

some spoiler of the characters that i still remember:
-Capt. Redbeard: addicted to shooting cannons/grapple hook/deadly rockets
-Pharaoh's Mummy: likes to fly with dual jet, addicted to giving us some oil slick
-King Kahuka: addicted to shields :lol: (hate it so much when it deflected my rockets)
-Baron von Baron: addicted to deflecting shields and grapple hook/rockets
-Basil Batlord: rocket is his favorite weapon, always uses blue shield, likes to fly with jets
-RR (Rocket Racer): RIDICULOUSLY FAST, EPIC BTTF/TELEPORTATION, BOOST BOOST BOOST (nah, it's easy to defeat him B) )

never forget that game, my very first kart arcade racing themed game.

hey, Veronica voltage is the girl with the old gray racecar and can only be defeated in time trial right? i kinda remember her.

sadly, i never saw anything real from lego racers. but, (many years ago) i bought some racers themed lego and making some mix of different parts, either from exo force with racers or star wars with racers, etc. i'm not just collecting, but making some interesting new model and my friends likes it, so i sold it to them. it's not a great decision tho, never ever make a gift or sell what you collected to others. there's some pics of my creations on my facebook page, i'll put them here if you want me to. ^_^

glad to see some revolters also likes lego. well, who doesn't? :lol:
You know that is love when the first try you made a drift params and it worked smoothly, beautifully, and most of all, perfectly.

I will build the bosses as zoon as I've got some more money. Collecting the pieces can be expensive. But I will definitely build them. And the spoiler kart you are referring to is properly called "turbo charger".

So, here are the Lego Racers Bosses that me and RV_Pure have built years ago. Hope you like them kajeuter. :)

Btw, I prefer This Minifighead for Rocket Racer, because it looks most similar to him.

Lego Racers was probably the first game I ever really, really got into (well before even Re-Volt) as a kid. So, to see all these bosses I spent so much time racing with actually built in real life is nothing short of an incredible nostalgia trip. The intro movie music is playing in my head as I type this.

I hope to see those bosses one day so that way I can triple green-brick the shit out of Rocket Racer in the real world.

Ho-ly **** !
Someone actually put them together irl !

Rocket Racer was my favorite character and I spent hours playing LEGO in order to get his car right (which i never managed).

On the other side, I still have many tiny cars with their drivers from LR-2.

I'll try to post them as soon as possible.
