  1. Lego Classic Space Monorail

    Beautiful - thanks for sharing!
  2. LL 928 M.C.V.P

    Terrific job! The red wheels look a bit off to me, personally, but I can appreciate what you were going for, there. Wish this was an official set so I could buy it! :)
  3. LEGO Sci-Fi 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    I agree. It's too much "its own thing". To think we were spoiled, last year, getting Benny's ship, the mech, and even the green Futuron minifig in that town set! Oh, I love for the days...
  4. Anything in the modern era (WWI-present) is pretty much off limits, with the exception of maybe some of the planes. I'd love to see it happen (and quite frankly Lego's stance on this is a bit hypocritical), but I think a more realistic hope might be something more in the Napoleonic area? They've touched upon this with their various Pirates lines already, after all.
  5. "LEGO Ruins Creativity"... Again

    Meh, whatever. I don't know anything about this guy, definitely don't agree with this. One thing I will mention, however, is that I miss Lego's "alternate builds" pics on packaging - which I do think encouraged creativity - and I somewhat lament that licensed sets are first and foremost as far as the company's agenda goes. But that's about as far as I'd go with that.
  6. LEGO Sci-Fi 2015 Pictures and Rumors

    There's some kind of Classic Space mini ship included with the Benny Dimensions set, too... I guess it's supposed to be his spaceship from the movie. Looks pretty cool. Man, us Classic Space fans will take anything right now, eh? :)
  7. [MOC] Neo Classic Space Submarine

    I wonder if these would be used for Classic Space recovery at sea, since spaceships tend to land in the ocean upon returning to earth. :) I toyed with the idea of doing a boat for this purpose. There's a nice hull in old grey and blue (unfortunately, mine belonged to a kid who sawed through it).
  8. Great LEGO Sets: A Visual History

    A book with the Galaxy Explorer on the cover? I'm in. The miniscale version included is a nice bonus, too.
  9. moonbase MoonBase MOONBASE!

    Very nice. Looks like it could exist in real life, and I love that you've got it with Classic Space guys without going for an overbearing blue/light grey colour scheme.
  10. Very cool! I might have to try and make that base at some point. Gotta say, those yellow arms are distracting. They look too much like bare arms in space - glad Lego didn't go for that. :)
  11. Predator

    Yeah, I was going to say as well, he's a little short in the legs. But holy moly, did you ever capture the look otherwise! Nicely done!
  12. REVIEW: #6895 Spy Trak 1

    Thanks for the review! Reminds me I've gotta pick this one up eventually... Great set. :)
  13. LEGO Sci-Fi 2015 Pictures and Rumors

    You know, it'd be pretty cool if they actually did put a sci-fi slant on something like that. I know I'm always touting the appeal of Classic Space and all, but if they could mix that with a NASA-like earth station/launch facility that'd be awesome... I mean, who wouldn't want to buy a Galaxy Explorer-like ship with big friggin' rocket boosters attached to it on a vertical launchpad? It'd be the perfect mix of something fresh and new with a classic, nostalgic type of appeal. :)
  14. LEGO Sci-Fi 2015 Pictures and Rumors

    Essentially how I feel as well. I would much rather it match the originals exactly, but... Well, I mean it's still a green Futuron fig, so I'll take it. :) Honest to goodness, I would buy ANYTHING Lego makes with the Classic Space logo on it. If they start putting it on Ninjago crap I'll buy 'em. ;)
  15. LEGO Sci-Fi 2015 Pictures and Rumors

    Yeah, well... I guess that stuff really just doesn't appeal to me. Honestly, without that old CS logo I'm not sure I'd be interested in any sci-fi type theme, for that matter. Guess I'm living in the past, lol. Hmm. Well who knows, I suppose. I wouldn't hold my breath, though. :) I finally picked up a 493 Space Command Center and can't help but think that something like this would work terrific in the Juniors theme... I believe someone had mentioned that earlier, but anyway, it'd be a great way to reintroduce the Classic Space concept. Plus, even though I know a lot of the "Neo Classic Space" MOCers love the more advanced designs, but I think I'd prefer something that looks more at home with the old sets. Oh well, wishful thinking either way, I suppose. :)
