    Thanks Holodoc and Roger Smith for your input. Let´s be optimistic about this particular project. I´m in no hurry to finish, so while waiting for more bricks/parts to arrive, the little spaceship option above will be kept "on hold" BTW: Here´s the second package of bricks/parts: Regards,

    Thanks BeO for your input! I guess you´re probably right, because special and discontinued bricks/parts are pricy and difficult to find. However, I enjoy looking for those bricks and parts. I also like the sense of completing the set step by step with every package that arrives in the mail. BTW: the mailman dropped another pacakge this week, and I have identified 74 additional parts for my project. I´m now around 200 bricks/parts short. I´ll keep you guys posted. Regards,

    Please help me identify this part.

    Many thanks deraven for your quick reply. I`ll go part-hunting now to complete the set. Regards,
  4. This Lego part came in a recently purchased bulk package. On the bottom, it has the number 85779-1-05. There´s and indication that it was made for McDonald´s under license around 2009. Any help identifying the set will be highly appreciated. Regards,

    Yesterday, the mailman left a package at my doorstep. It happens to be one of those Lego bricks lots that are sold by the pound. I´ve identified 15 (blue, black and light gray) parts that can be used for my Galaxy Explorer project (see picture). That´s 15 out of 325 bricks...I expect more packages to arrive soon. I´ll keep you guys posted. Regards,

    Many thanks for your input weeble1688. Light Gray it is! I´ve already identified several bricks in some e-stores, including the translucent-red and translucent-green ones. I guess the translucent-yellow, the printed bricks and some other special parts will not be that easy to find. As you indicate, It is definitively a fantastic set (I used to own one as a child, but it is no longer in my possession). Buying/trading, organizing and putting together all the bricks will bring some good memories. I believe this is an interesting project to share, so I´ll keep you guys posted on the progress of this particular build. Regards,

    I´m in the process of reconstructing/replicate the Lego 497 Galaxy Explorer set. With respect to the colors of the gary bricks, some e-sellers identify them as being "Light Gray" or "Medium Stone Gray". Which is the correct color for the set? Thanks in advanced for your assured response.
