Hi, welcome here! It's always nice to see some "local" people around here, since the most members are from UK and USA!

Lol, we are very friendly here, even if it's about themes like Bionicles! ;)

Classic Space was a few years too early for me, I just got two or three sets (my time began with BlackTron I), CS isn't my favourite theme, but it was nice nonetheless.

welcome in our midst... you will find lots of Yodas and Vaders here, but they only fight with words...

Classic space came just in time for me and I have great memories of them... i'm still hoping for a galaxy explorer legend, but i guess that will never happen...

what do you think of the Ldraw program? i used it a few times, but quite a few parts in the catalogue are missing, and I have problems with other functions as well...

There may be many Yodas and Vaders but there is only one....  MR PHES!!!

I shall now confess that I bought a Classic Space set back in 1993.  It was set 6834 Celestial Sled and my granny gave me 6898  Ice-Sat V for my birthday.  She was going to get me 6973  Deep Freeze Defender because it was on sale, but when she got to the store it was sold out.


But why was I getting these when PIRATES were still being produced...  I'm not quite sure.

No I remain discontent.  Its just not the saaaaaaaaaaame!

However, I notice there was no "Space Pirates" sub theme of space.  What's with that?

Wrong!  Wrong! Wrong!

I'm a young retired Pirate.  Why did I retire when I'm young?  Obviously I'm lazy.  At least I won't be one of those Pirates that didn't quit while he/she were ahead.

i just have it a few day's but i like it a lot, except those missing parts(that's ok because the most parts that i have in real are in catalogue), the hose generator (it's so much easier to just put that thing on some studs in real;)) and that i can't use the damn undo function... it's never highlighted... i don't know why... the grouping function can be improved (subgroups)... and some other functions like the rotation point (only one?)... then this would be a first class program...
the good thing is that you never run out of one color or part and that you can place the camera everywhere you want...

i would be very interested in that... hmm... that bring's some ideas... ;)

the "undo button" would also be extremely popular in my book... i believe the official argument is that the Ldraw program is not entirely finished as a software package. they're still working on a couple of things, the undo function being one of those...
