6455 Space Simulation Station Pictorial Review
Posted 15 July 2008 - 09:45 AM
I recently got a few still sealed and new sets from the 90' on ebay, and after the Rock Raider's Hover Scout this isthe second one i'll review. I really like the space port theme, even if the sets may be more simple than earlier space city sets, i like the overall look and the color scheme. But enough of that, let's go on with the pictures!
Set Nr.: 6455
Name: Space Simulation Station
Number of minifigs: 3
Number of pieces: 240
Release Year: 1999
First again a few pics of the boxes and the instructions:
The main box:
This theme had a kinda strange seperation of the pieces, the parts for the control center and the shuttle are in seperate little boxes, and the others are in polybags with the models printed on them.
Also seperate instructions for each step:
A general overview:
We got 3 lovely minifigs here, from left to right the control engineer, the mechanic and the astronaut:
The -i dont know the english word for it- testing-thing, the astronaut is being tested to hard nerves there
The mechanics little car, on the back an extinguisher and a radio device is attached:
the take-off station for the little shuttle with the shuttle itself on it:
And without it:
Tools, tools, tools!
The shuttle as stand-alone:
i think that would be fuel tanks, i like this little detail:
And finally we have the controll room, would have been better with seats, but it's alright:
A really sweet mid-sized set if you ask me, a few juniorized parts, but it fits perfectly with the set. The theme itself is also great, and i wish that TLG brings it back, i could see stunning sets with the quality city sets have right now!

I have some sets of space-port and like them, but I would want real town sets in 1999...

I got a MOC Page! Look at my mediocre creations!
Like KoTOR II but think is seems rushed? The fine folks at Team Gizka are out to fix it!

Wow, I'd completely forgotten about this theme, which is suprising since I absolutely loved this theme as a kid (minus the sound n' light brick, which I thought was pretty big and ugly). Sure brings back memories of looking at those little catalogue booklets that came with the sets.

It's comes with 3 mini-figs and Staudie with it. Geez, I never thought he was an astronaunt back then.
The testing facility is great, and I love to see it spin, by putting Staudie in it for a "test-run".
The buggy is cute as well, but somehow, I don't really like the white frame at the back. It looked a little odd to me. The tools, are simply wonderful to have. Furthermore, these are grey tools. The last time, we had so many tools are the aeroplane mechanic.
The shuttle is nice, but does the shuttle supposed to come with a cover as well? I guess, since this is a simulator, they must have cut down the budget for it. The control room is good, and it will be even better with chairs included.
metalandi, thanks for the wonderful review!

I like this set, even though it is a little simple. Despite the flames, I think that the shuttle actually is a training sim, as others pointed out. Overall, it's pretty nice, and I'd love to see a modern version of this in the city line - along with other realistic space sets.
