Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Sci-Fi(When the base and any other digital creations are built in real life, I will add those pictures into this page.) This is the beginning of a journey through the wormhole to a mini-figure called Benny and a civilization on the cusp of greatness. His continuing mission: to seek out new lifeforms, to explore unknown worlds, all in the name of of science and awesomeness. The year is 1980-something, the name of the theme is Classic Space. Classic Space fortress walls The base as it was ordered... will post a picture of the complete setup when built in real life. Here is the main gate. It can open up all the way to allow the 8-stud wide ground vehicles though. Two of these parts go next to the gate where the un-printed 4 x 2 slopes are. This is one of twelve walls sections, held together with the other modules by four Technic pins.(two on each side) This is one of four of the corner modules. I redesigned these since last time to be less parts intensive and have fewer gaps in the wall. Classic Space HQ / Benny's home This building model was inspired by sets 7641 (City Corner), 31026, (Bike Shop + Cafe). This building is Benny's home and the backup classic space command center. The delivery door out back was designed for semi-truck deliveries to the model rocket shop that originally occupied the building, but now serves as the entrance to the base. (NOTE: watch your head, as this is a very cramped area!) Downstairs is the old model rocket store showroom, with a model Utopian city (with monorail!) and 1980's video game cabinet "Astro Nut". Benny keeps the sales counter the way it was in the old days, as a reminder of the building's heritage. Inside and upstairs is the living area with the huge 1970's super computer LL9000 taking up a sizable amount of space at the top of the stairs. On the upstairs level as well is the cooking area and sleeping quarters, where Benny has a TV to record his favorite shows on VHS tapes... old habits die hard I guess! Classic 1970's Moonraker automobile This is Benny the 1980-something space guy's 1979 Moonraker made by Neptune Auto Group. The engine has been upgraded from a gasoline chugging-monster into a more environmentally-friendly Hydrogen-3 Fusion engine to turn it into a modern mechanical beast with a retro exterior. Benny added bigger tires to the car to get it over the craters of the small moon where Benny's base is stationed. The car also has a spare tire located on the opening trunk. The roof is removable, and the three seats can fit figures with air-tanks and helmets. The doors open in the front normally, but in the rear they open in a reversed pattern to create a wider opening. Classic 1980's Security Forces Jeep (x2) This model was heavily inspired by set 75916: Dilophosaurus Ambush from the first series of Jurassic World sets. I have turned that jeep into a Classic Space vehicle by subtracting most of the features and adding the CS logo to this piece on the trunk and a space seat for the driver. This CS version has a trans-yellow windscreen and a revised roll-cage. The rear of the vehicle has a spare tire, license plate and tail-pipe while the roll-cage folds back to allow for you to place the driver in the seat. Cosmic Explorer This is a heavily modified set 70816 (Benny's Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP!) to features a new canopy from set 75176 (Resistance Transport pod) for the front windscreen, plus a rear turret that elevates and rotates in lieu of the radar dish and repair robots. To match the new canopy, the crew quarters were enlarged and opening roof remade, but the wings still fold out via the same Technic mechanism as in the original set 70816. The rear of the ship features the three main engines. The sensor array that was once near here was replaced by a four-barrel repeating laser turret that can rotate a full 360 degrees and elevate to 180 degrees, allowing for cover fire in almost any direction. The wings fold out if the center engine is pushed inwards, ready for the foam-tipped missiles to be engaged and aimed at any Blacktron III enemies... I did remove those yellow missiles, as they were too touchy and could fire accidentally. The main canopy has been heavily modified to allow for crew to go between the engineering and navigation sections without having to exit the ship. The Unikitty-seat area was replaced with a opening canopy for the engineering and fire-control crew to see outside from their stations near the Imagination Reactor. Deep Space Fighters These ships are deep space fighters of the Galaxy-class. Each seat one figure and have enhanced hyper-drive making it nearly as fast as LL-929. (Benny's spaceship) This ship was designed to be a heavily-armed fighter, and features an enclosed cockpit allowing for long distance travel such as from system to system if in an emergency. The rear of each of the two ship's features two engines made up of four thrusters. Here is the cockpit, which can seat 1 pilot figure per ship. K8-E the robot dog - Benny's best friend After meeting the Doctor (Who?) and his K-9 (pronounced Canine) unit, Benny decided he wanted a pet. So he bought himself a retired space police bot named K8-E (it's pronounced Katy) who helps Benny with his maintaining his SPACESHIP! and home base of the fleet. The two robot dogs eventually teamed up to sabotage a Blacktron and Dalek peace treaty from being signed, thus keeping the Universe safe from their plans for conquest for the moment. K8-E even took a laser shot from the Blacktron secondary leader, saving K-9 from being killed in the midst of them leaving the self-destructing Dalek ship. When reunited with Benny and the Doctor a short while later, the robot dog was fixed up and given the nod of approval from the Doctor, and a happy farewell from K-9, who left with the Doctor in the TARDIS to go to parts unknown looking for the Daleks fleeing from their loss at the hands of K8-E & K-9. From then on, K8-E has been keeping Benny company while awaiting the return of K-9 and the Doctor. K8-E is actually modified from set 8399 (K-9 Bot), which is a 2009 Space Police III set. Astro-Bot 33 - Classic Space's Giant Robot You may ask yourself: "Why would the Classic Space fleet want a giant robot?" The answer is a simple one: "Who in their right mind wouldn't want a giant freaking robot!?!?!" This model is a recolored and modified version of Hachiroku24's Iron Giant model, but remade it into the Classic Space color-scheme. Red and green indicator lights are placed in four spots while the feet feature hidden trans-orange tiles to signify rocket-booster output nozzles that allow for flight. I revised the robot's head, to add a central fin that is more like the 50's inspired original Iron Giant. Bumblebee stripes are also on his upper torso near the neck. The number 33 is printed just above the Classic Space logo using vintage '80's bricks as well, to give it a retro feel. NOTE: After removing the knees and fixing the ankles, the robot stands up a lot better. (I really need to take a picture of it standing up on it's own sometime...) Secure Cargo Crawler-Transporter This is a heavily modified Classic Space version of 2018 Star Wars set 75217 (Imperial Conveyex Transport). It's length has been doubled and the weapons have been removed, but it function remains the same: this vehicle transports valuable material be it futuristic rocket fuel, or oxygen tanks, or even astronaut food to and from Benny's remote base in a highly secure manner to the far-away location of New Asteroid City on the far side of the planet. The vehicle can be shortened or lengthened in modular sections depending on the needs of the specific mission, but in this particular case it has two crawler engine units, and two cargo hauler segments that can easily detach for maintenance or to drop more segments in / out. On the engine unit is the dual drivers compartments, located on either side of the tread behind the square openings. The round hatches is where the actual engine for the vehicle is located. The cargo sections haul four sealed containers of very volatile fuel apiece, with the entire train seen here hauling eight. The roof has a single hatch on each car for escape in case of emergency, as does either longitudinal end of either of the cars. You can also see here the fuel as it is being readied for transport, just before being sealed in the boxes and set inside the vehicle. (NOTE: The walls flip up to allow for you to place the cargo inside in real life, but LDD was being dumb about the TECHNIC hinges, so I hid the wall to allow for this shot) Classic Space figures These are all my Classic Space figures. The thirteen green figures are the soldiers of the group, while while the six red suited people are scientists. The three blue figures are Benny (in helmet), Penelope (with pigtails), and Unikitty who are the officers of the group. The two other figures, (the red android and the robo-dog) are T-3PO, who serves as the translator to other species and computer systems, while the robo-dog is K8-E who happens to be Benny's personal pet / security guard.
