No Starch Press is really making a name for itself by publishing high-quality, visually arresting collections of amazing LEGO creations for the AFOL community. (That stands for Adult Fan of LEGO, as it turns out.) And Incredible LEGO Technic has some truly phenomenal pieces to showcase.

In short, this is world-class LEGO design and construction on display. These vehicle models and other designs don’t just look like their real-world counterparts, they work like them too! Weight, balance, suspension, aesthetics—all of these qualities and more are taken into account by some immensely talented brick-wielding superfans. In addition to actual vehicles like sports cars, motorcycles, and construction equipment, Incredible LEGO Technic features fictional vehicles from Batman Begins, Avatar, Warhammer 40,000, and Star Wars, as well as oddities like a working braiding machine and a water strider that floats!

The write-ups accompanying each piece include details on both the LEGO model and its inspiration, often because the idiosyncrasies of the real vehicle are reflected in the construction story of the model. This is fantastic stuff from start to finish, and it will no doubt spark the imaginations of many AFOLs.
