We love alternative builds here at TLCB. They’re at the very core of what LEGO is all about, turning the pieces used to create one thing into another thing entirely.

Flickr’s Dyen’s Creations earns our admiration today, having flipped their 42122 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon into something altogether different, creating this excellent (and operational) Technic backhoe loader from only the parts found within the 42122 set.

There’s a working front arm complete with a tilting brick-built bucket, an unfurling rear arm, working stabilisers and functioning steering too.

We think we might like it even more than the set upon which it’s based, and if you agree you can take a look at Dyen’s ‘LEGO 42122 – Backhoe Loader’ album via the link above, plus you can check out all the other things that the 42122 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon set has become by clicking this bonus B-Model link!
