    1980 Something Space

    Hi Eurobricks! I want to share a site I have been working on for the past couple years: www.1980somethingspace.com The site focuses on LEGO Space sets from 1978-1999, check it out!
  2. (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 Seeing the LEGO Movie (part 2) trailer has got me on a Classic Space kick again! I was inspired to create this model from the Jurassic World set 75930, Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate, with some design cues from Classic Space sets from the 1980's. The fortress walls were inspired by a very much expanded and modified Jurassic World set 75919, Indominus Rex Breakout. The now modular walls are supposed to hold spaceships and ground vehicles for Benny's classic space fleet, along with the giant robot I have constructed in real life. Originally I was going to be building either the fort or the house because they were separate and wouldn't match, and then I thought "why not both?". So I made the walls match the house and visa-versa, and here we have fruits of my labors. 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 Embassy / Benny's HQ The main dollhouse-style mansion model was built from the set pictures of 75930 and from features from the second Jurassic world movie itself, with the fall-apart play features removed and two opening rear quarter-sections added to match the front half. The model also features a round "time window" for commander Benny to experiment with in his spare time. As you may have noticed, there are sections of the fortress walls attached to the front of this half of the house. They seems unevenly spaced, but this is because the house is not "in system" with the rigid grid-like wall sections. I made a 3/4 wall section and attached it to one side of the house, and a simple connector on the other side. This allowed the house to become "in system" and actually centers it very neatly on the side wall of the fort. The rear of the mansion features a conservatory and the chimney flue, along with a back door and rear porch light. The house folds apart, with the two rear sections opening in quarters up to 90 degrees, while the conservatory opens up to 180 to allow for figure placement. (Up to five Technic pins can hold the model shut at key points for transportation with ease and handling with little fragility.) The front half on the found floor features the entry hall, TV room with couch and dining room. The second floor features the custom-printed master computer (un-printed here in LDD) and Benny's bedroom. The uppermost two floors features the science lab, with the time window and several other experiments. The right rear quarter features the conservatory and some furniture on the second and third floors, plus the dining room on the first floor. This section also has stairs from first to second floors, plus a '80's video game cabinet (Astro Nut, of course!) on the second floor. The left rear quarter features the fireplace and the stairs to the third floor, plus a miniature space monorail layout and a TV with VCR. 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. 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. The Steel Colossus - 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. (NOTE: As of right now, the robot does stand on it's own, but it quite unstable and falls over easily. I ordered the wrong ankle joint parts, and this will be rectified as soon as possible.) 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) EDITED: 9/15/16: Added vehicles and K-8 to the main post. EDITED 9/1/17: Added revised Benny's spaceship model, of which updated pictures are coming soon. EDITED 12/19/17 finally added real life pictures of a revised Benny's spaceship and support fighters. EDITED 6/7/18: Added Giant Robot, new personal vehicle for Benny and a updated base. EDITED 7/15/18: Added real-world pictures of Benny's car and building. EDITED 8/2/18: Added the giant robot's real-world pictures to the first post. EDITED 8/7/18: Added crawler-transporter to first post. EDITED 8/12/18: Added a larger classic space embassy to the post. As usual, Comments, questions and complaints are always welcome!
  3. I was inspired to create this model from the 2018 Jurassic World set 75930, Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate, with some design cues from set 10228, Haunted House, although in blue and white with trans yellow glass. The dollhouse-style model was built from the set pictures and from features from the movie itself, with the fall-apart play features removed and opening rear sections added to match the front half. The model also features a round "time window" for Benny to experiment with in his spare time. As usual, this classic space logo printed piece goes where this 4 x 2 slope is, just below the front balcony and right above the front door. The house without any figures, cars, or giant robots. The very large satellite dish on the roof is so Benny can communicate with the Classic Space fleet in any weather: rain, sunshine, snow, solar wind-storm, or nuclear fallout. Whatever the weather, Benny gets through! The rear of the mansion features a conservatory and the chimney flue, along with a back door and rear porch light. The house folds apart, with the two rear sections opening in quarters up to 90 degrees, while the conservatory opens up to 180 to allow for figure placement. (Up to five Technic pins can hold the model shut at key points for transportation with ease and handling with little fragility.) The front half on the found floor features the entry hall, TV room with couch and dining room. The second floor features the custom-printed super computer (un-printed here in LDD) and Benny's bedroom. The uppermost two floors features the science lab, with the time window and several other science experiments. Here is the huge 1970's super computer LL9000 (custom printed part) which takes up a sizable amount of space on the second level wall just above the entry hall. The right rear quarter features the conservatory and some furniture on the second and third floors, plus the dining room on the first floor. This section also has stairs from first to second floors, plus a '80's video game cabinet (Astro Nut, of course!) on the second floor. The left rear quarter features the fireplace and the stairs to the third floor, plus a miniature space monorail layout and a TV with VCR. 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 was 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. Real life version The building as it sits right now, before it gets torn apart to create the version seen in the first part above. Most of it's parts will be donated to create the mansion. As always, comments, questions, suggestions, and complaints are welcome!
  4. Here is a new moc presented at a recent lego fan show. Builder, my friend Fabrizio Panini. The work required about three years of design and installation. The number of pieces used is about 170,000 pieces (of which 4,000 are trans-yellow only). Many moving parts. 10 XL motors and 10 custom LED cards were used. We do not know the total weight but we used about 15 kg of Technic pieces. I hope this sharing likes you. I will soon upload more videos on the channel. Good Buildings at All!
  5. Y-Wings are nice, I've wanted to build one for a while, so I did. I hope you found this story exciting. optional astromech attachment:

    Classic Space - every set video

    Apologies if this has already been posted and I somehow missed it or if posting a link to YouTube is verboten, but this video of every Classic Space set is really impressive! The filming isn't great but the collection is. I don't have anything to do with the collector, the interviewer or the event. As someone who has fond memories of the earliest Classic Space sets and recreated 6927 All-Terrain Vehicle in 2014 (see here, here, here and here), I just thought the video was super cool.
  7. Hi, This topic is dedicated to an awesome classic space build "LL928 Comes Home" MOC by Wolf Leews (/instruct. by Jeff McClain). I've just found some days ago on the net. ANd baang.. I want to build it to my kid!!! I was love at first sight. This base is cool, not too big, you can handle, appropriate size for a small exploration outpost and AWESOME!!!! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/e171cf44-c810-4f03-8e24-6d51e5a9bcfd https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-1865/wolf.leews/ll928-comes-home-spaceship/#bi Unfortunately the dll or instructions not available anymore... Can someone help us? Please share the LXF files or instructions with us. This awesome craft was here also: THANKX!!!!
  8. Do you agree with this idea or not?It will be nice from LEGO to do that.

    Benny's rover Rover ROVER!

    Here is my Febrovery entry for this year. I was mostly inspired by late Classic Space with the colour scheme and set 1580.
  10. Recently I was in the mood to build stuff in space theme. Professionally speaking it's called Neo-Classic Space ;) It means that MOC is referring to the series of LEGO sets from the 80s but with the usage of newer bricks and more modern design.

    LEGO Rocket - Instructions [MOC]

    Hello, this is a rocket that I designed to look like the standard simple rocket design. I haven't found a very strong way to attach the bottom to the main body, so if you have any suggestions for me about how to improve that, I would really appreciate it! https://image.ibb.co/iLfVLn/Simple_Rocket.png Here is a tutorial on how to build it: If you like it, feel free to support it here: https://ideas.lego.com/challenges/1b817aba-3990-4e6d-a17f-7a59a948d02f/application/fad3dc1d-9646-4621-9448-7dd85fad4bdc
  12. My Lego Space moment is when Lego Brick first meets Outer Space and Classic Space was born. This year is the 40th Anniversary of Classic Space. FLIP the brick over to reveal additional brick and plate pieces that can be combined with the original building bricks to build a Classic Space Station. Both the red and white space minifigs were the first to go into outer space. It is both a commemorative set and a playset. I think this will make a very nice gift set for fans of Classic Space, both young and old. Please vote here if you like the idea. Thanks.

    LEGO Ideas Project: Planetary Outpost

    Hello everyone. As a huge lover of Classic Space, I have made a LEGO Ideas proposal to celebrate its upcoming 40th anniversary. I would love to hear from anyone who has something constructive to say about my design (I'm new here so please be gentle ;), and if you like my project, well, I sure could use all the support I could get :) I hope this will spark a positive discussion about Classic Space and LEGO's sci-fi-non-Star Wars themes :D https://ideas.lego.com/projects/b0827dea-3bd0-46b2-a733-e2e380fa1794
  14. A LUG member challenged people to build a micro lego set like the brickset competition. As a fan of the Robot Command Center, I felt I had to do that. I don't have flicker or instagram. I haven't decided if I will join to enter the contest. All the vehicles except the flyer dock into the robot command center.

    Classic Space Theme?

    What are the odds Lego releases another line that coincides with their Classic Space theme? I would love to see more of that blue and yellow spaceships and bases. Just curious. Sorry if that has been asked before on here, I'm a newer member. Edit: They do show love to the series since they had DLC for a recent Lego game based on the theme
  16. 35 years ago LEGO Classic Space 6980 Galaxy Commander was released. So I decided to rebuild this set. But something went wrong … hmm, maybe not a good idea if a trainhead who prefers trains in 7- or 8-wide starts building Classic Space sets ;-) But now enjoy some pics … … and some more over at flickr

    Playing in Space Since 1978

    Let me introduce you to my new creation. PLAYING IN SPACE SINCE 1978 by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr Have you ever wondered how our Spacemen Heroes could travel for almost 40 years through space without getting older or bored to death? Here’s your answer. For forty years our heroes have been playing with LEGO bricks! I was reorganizing some minifigs when I found a spaceman that I used to play with when I was a child, having him live the most amazing adventures. And I started wondering “He’ll be 40 in a little while, what’s his secret?” So, I imagined him, together with all his travelling companions, playing with a LEGO Space base for forty years. Maybe it’s true that playing with LEGO bricks keeps you young. What do you think about it? Do you find it new? Interesting? Creative? I had never seen something like this before and it's one of the reasons I've launched the project on LEGO Ideas. Another one is to see our beloved Classic Space minifig come back, or, why not, maybe even a few themed sets could come back. This project could act as a springboard. If you like, here's the link https://ideas.lego.com/projects/b21ccd00-a013-4509-9614-65cdab72ec82. Let me know what you think about it.
  18. This train was created for the Brick Model Railroad OcTRAINber contest. Rarely seen on the lunar rails is the classic Space Train. This 69 stud long locomotive is an all-in-one train setup for transporting and launching missiles. Up front is the engineer’s compartment with full computer support to enable one man operations. Behind him is the electrical cabinet with satellite communications dish (PF receiver and AAA battery box). After the transformer is the crew compartment (roof opens for ease of access). Designed for comfort, it includes a bunk, microwave, and small pantry cabinet. Besides the creature amenities, it has two workstations. The right side wall console is primary satellite and orbital management while the aft console is for missile operations. Separated from the crew by a duratanium firewall is the missile bay. Due to the need to launch missile from any location to reach the desired orbit, the train itself is designed as the launch platform. When the top hatch opens, the missile is raised to launch position while doors on the side open up to allow the hot gasses to escape. The locomotive is capable of carrying one missile with satellite payload at a time. Behind the missile storage area is the power reactor, defensive plasma cannon, and thrusters. The plasma cannon turret can rotate 270 degrees around and the barrel can elevate to 80 degrees. The main engines provide the majority of the thrust while cruising the lunar landscape. The Swoosh 69 studs long, Power Function equipped, capable of handling R40 curves, and the lights turn on too! Benny would so approve.
  19. Hello, This is more of a seeking of ideas rather than a straight up statement. But I'm curious if anyone could provide some more ideas as to why the 497/928 Galaxy Explorer is far more ubiquitous than the 6980 Galaxy Commander? Being the first flagship of course will always make it #1 it seems, but that being put aside, is there anything else that earns it almost all the attention on neo classic space builds, the Lego Movie, etc? It seems with Pirates, there is more of a 45-55 split in terms of the Skull's Eye Schooner vs the Black Seas Barracuda. Of course, a Lugnet rating of 94 for the Galaxy Explorer vs 93 for the Galaxy Commander doesn't show a huge bias, but it just seems that 6980 is missing out sometimes. Any thoughts are appreciated!
  20. Cross posting here. Enjoy

    What if there was an M:tron-II

    There was Blacktron-II and Space Police-II but never M:tron-II. I have been trying to come up with a concept for Mtron- II. I decided I would go with old brown as a major color because it was never done in Lego space and it would show an industrial gritty look. Here is what I came up with: M:tron-II Salvage Recovery Ship by Walter Whiteside Jr., on Flickr M:tron-II Salvage Recovery Ship by Walter Whiteside Jr., on Flickr M:tron-II mobile rescue base by Walter Whiteside Jr., on Flickr M:tron-II mobile rescue base by Walter Whiteside Jr., on Flickr I hope you enjoy! Feel free to check out some of my MOCs on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/66166063@N07/albums/72157686946208850
  22. A few years ago, classic-space.com was a good hub for classic space MOCers. It gradually became less and less active but still had a trickle of MOC posts and discussions. There was some type of hack or mass troll posting and it has been "down for maintenance" ever since. Does anyone know anything?

  24. Hi, below you'll find my first custom build in about 25 years. I wanted to build this iconic starfighter using only parts from the classic space repertoire up until 1987. I especially like how the foldable foils turned out. There is certainly room for improvement, especially when considering the engines. The nose could use some tweaking as well. MK II is going to be a bit larger in order to accommodate a minifigure and a prototype is sitting on my desk. Unfortunately the folding mechanism is too weak for the increased wingspan, so I will have tinker with this a bit. Anyway, I hope you like it.
