    The Future of Lego Space. (opinions, ideas, discussion)

    Hello all, while we're debating the pros and cons of science over fiction in our LEGO sets, I thought I'd share a video I made for the Apollo50 celebrations - a MODing of the LEGO Lunar Lander set :) Hope you find it interesting.

    I love the fact it's a fully enclosed base (just like mine 😉), and really like the shuttle. Just need a bit more stuff inside the base itself - but that didn't stop me from supporting it a few days ago 😀 I'm hoping this year's sets were just the preamble and next year we'll have proper space bases - but if that's not the case, there's loads of proposals over on Lego Ideas - let's vote for them all to tell LEGO what we really want 😀

    Hello everyone. I’ve started dabbling on the YouTube and made a video about a forthcoming LEGO space set - I’m thinking it might be of interest to people on this thread :) And while I’ve got your attention, I also took a look at a space set that LEGO Ideas refused to have on the site (and no, it’s not because it was bad ;)

    I like your train of thought :) BTW anyone know when these sets will be released?

    Maybe I’m an old mutant but the original truly is the best. It’s a planet with a ship swooshing past it, and it also looks like Saturn, a faraway planet, propelling the sense of adventure and pioneering exploration. All the others feel more contained IMHO. And this recent one, is close, but it looks like the ship’s a zipper lol

    I think you're likely right - I might've been thinking of the logo from sets such as this one: https://shop.lego.com/en-GB/product/Spaceport-60080 (I have no idea how to embed images in a comment - would be so much easier - sorry for being a noob) it's weird that the new logo looks so familiar to me... and yet isn't. Don't know where I'd have seen it elsewhere...

    I’m really liking this new space theme - although maybe a tad too earthbound. Can’t wait to see them in the flesh - so to speak. btw, that space logo... I thought it’d been used before, but now can’t find any previous set with it. Can anyone with more knowledge confirm or deny this?

    Classic Space Outpost MOC

    Hi! first the easy question: in honour of the 40th anniversary of Classic Space, the set has 1978 pieces. Re the airlock connection, you’re right: half of the airlock (the ramp, the white door and one stud beyond) is a self contained construct which is attached by a couple of SNOT studs to the main base. Remove it and those exposed studs can be connected to the other base. I’ve designed it in such a way that you can’t connect the modules if they’ll block the opening of the walls. It works pretty well. Maybe I should do a video to explain the procedure. Thanks for your support!

    wow love the image! Interesting note: the original design for my alien species also included wings! Making the design extremely similar. I’ve got the sketch on my computer somewhere. Will have to find it and post it here. Hopefully tomorrow.

    You're right: a different colour would've been nice. Personally, I'm quite excited by those geode pieces. Has LEGO ever produced something like that before? I know they made crystals, and gold nuggets, but I don't remember seeing those geodes before. (I might make good use of them in my project ;)

    Must be a new delicacy... The original (and the best) ones are already available there - but they ain't cheap...

    Yep. It was Jimmy. He was working on an anti-gravity propulsion system. And he was sooo close. 😢

    Correct and well observed. It’s probably the lost freckleless race. Probably was endangered too. ;)

    These new sets look pretty interesting. I like the fact that my own Ideas proposal is kinda compatible with them. I’m going to have fun with them (as long as they’re not too expensive), although I’m a little shocked a decapitated mutant head is in one of the sets!
