  3. (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 base's main gate. It can open up all the way to allow the ground vehicles though, including the road train. (Conveyex) The gate fully closed. 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 skyscraper - 76038 MOD I was inspired to build this model by set 76038. (Attack on Avengers Tower) from 2015. I turned it into a Classic Space skyscraper, specifically one for Benny's HQ. This one was designed with it's ultra-sleek feel and wraparound window on the top floor for Benny's office, overlooking the whole space base which he commands, which also conveniently hooks into the walls of the building at the base. The street-side of the building features the canopy-covered front door with the year that Classic Space was started emblazoned on the top row of studs. (1978, labeled in printed 1 x 1 tiles) Slightly above that is the CS logo piece as seen here. The two upper most floors are Benny's office and then the memorabilia room, featuring Benny's original broken helmet and a golden Space Paranoids high score trophy. (Benny won several competitions in the late 1980's after being coached by game master / inventor Kevin Flynn.) There is also supposed to be the trans-dark blue Space infinity stone in there for safekeeping, but the Avengers needed it recently, so he gave it back and is patiently waiting for it's eventual return to him. The next three floors down are where the computers that control the rooftop radio antenna dish are situated. They all look the same so only one is shown. Classic 1970's Moonraker muscle car This eight-wide Classic Space model was loosely based upon cobbled-together hot rod in set 70829 (Emmet and Lucy's Escape Buggy!) from the LEGO Movie 2 - the second part. I have reconfigured the car's front end (the only part I kept mostly intact from the set) for use with Benny the 1980-something space guy, and added trans-yellow windows, a blue + light gray paint scheme, with additional black / yellow bumblebee stripes for good measure. I have removed the set's wild suspension, and added a more tame rear half to better match the front portion. This looks (to me) like a late 1970's muscle car, of the same time frame when Classic Space launched in 1978. The car also has two side mirrors, red wheels, opening passenger cabin doors, and a license plate in the back instead of the original huge engine and jet booster exhaust outlet. I also added in a Jack Stone spoiler piece because, why not? 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. More recently, I added a new nose to the ship inspired by DC comics set 76028. (Darkseid Invasion) 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 smaller rockets. 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 @hachiroku 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...) Conveyex 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 visible weapons have been removed, to make more room for passengers. Behind the trans-yellow glass of the former cargo-cars are seats, so that workers can get to Benny's space base without driving in themselves. (Call it a commuter light-railroad system, without the "rail" part!) 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 each of the engine units is the dual drivers compartments, located on either side of the tread behind the square openings. Each car seat four figures, meaning the whole train hauls eight people (+ their air-tanks!). ....and yes, two of the handles on the doors are upside-down in all the pictures. 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. The astronauts you see here are the famous "Lost Six". These half-dozen brave souls were with Benny in 1988 when the space station they were on was ambushed by Blacktron I forces and blasted into a black hole. Benny managed to escape the station before it entered the gravity field, but only just in the nick of time. (He could not reach his ship mates due to a computer error with the hatch systems.) Benny's suit was damaged in the escape, and he still wears it like that to this day as a reminder of his failure to get his crew off in time. This is the last picture of the Lost Six, with Benny out of frame because he took the picture. (He was supposed to be in the picture, but he forgot to set the timer on that take.) Will we ever see these brave men and women again? Only time will tell! EDITED 12/27/18: added the 70841 astronauts (with base door) real life photo to the first post. More photo's of the base walls are coming soon! As usual, Comments, questions and complaints are always welcome!

    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!
  6. Hi there, I made some little Moc in a Classic Space style and today I'm here to show you. I made these Mocs to complete my Classic Space diorama, so I tried to make them by using just parts from that era, more or less 1979-1987. The diorama is about 160 x 60 cms The first one is a kind of a Command space centre: The second one is a little complex because I wanted to create a refinery, consisting of an extraction center, a refining plant and the storage tank. The last one is a little vehicle for the transport of debris... That's all folks.
  7. Space! Ongoing dark abyss and home to an endless Number of worlds! For decades, Mankind has ventured into the unknown and build settlements, space stations and terraformed planets.And you know what these all have in common? Dirty landing pads. Spaceships collect a lot of dust and dirt while flying through space, and much of it lands on landing pads like the crumbs on a keyboard when you eat chips. Now who do you think cleans this mess up? Well, if you still live at your parents place, probably your mum.As for our adventurous fellows in space, it´s the job of the maintenance crew to clean the landing pads. Luckily they now have a powerful new tool to aid in their important bud mediocre paid job. Hitch the vacuum cleaner trailer to your lunar buggy and follow the trail of space dust. IMG_20200424_195002 IMG_20200424_195252 IMG_20200424_195322 IMG_20200424_195350 Infrared and Infragreen sensors detect any kind of dirt on the landing strip and will move the cleaning nozzles so they can suck up all that space dirt. IMG_20200424_195405 IMG_20200424_195424 IMG_20200424_200827 Well, keep space and your keyboard clean fellow space fan...

    [MOC ] LL-997 Viper

    A couple of years ago I built a Neo-Classic Space display for Brickvention which I called A-83 Exploration Base (you can see photos of it here if you are interested.) as part of the display I built three ships of varying sizes/purposes and this one is my Viper, LL-997. It was designed to be a single-person fighter. More photos here for those interested, and I have also recently submitted it to LEGO Ideas if you would like to support it (and I personally hope that you will!). Thanks!

    [MOC] Space Castle

    This is a LEGO Ideas project of a Classic Space castle I built. It is a bit inspired by the LEGO castles from the 80s and is also based on a LEGO game I have created called Classic Space Adventure, which is an old school platform game that can be played in your browser. If you like this space castle it would be really appreciated if you would support it here. Like the LEGO castles from the 80s it can be opened and closed. . The space castle can be played with like in the game. En jämförelse med LEGO-modellen och borgen i spelet. Just a scene where Red Spaceman shoots down some robot enemies.
  10. This model was originally a @hachiroku model of the the Nubian Royal Star-ship from Star wars Episode I (The Phantom Menace), as seen here. I followed his instructions and gave it my own twist with bulkier engines, elongated fuselage and a blue color streak or three, along with bumblebee stripes for the official neo-Classic Space look. Speaking of engines, these "glow" trans-orange whereas the original model didn't have any afterglow color. I also added radar dish pieces to them, as it wouldn't be classic space without these parts, would it? The ship is owned by Classic Space Ambassador and vintage 1978 white-suited astronaut Jenny, who uses the ship to conduct meetings with just-discovered worlds to talk to them about membership in the Lego Space Congress. They don't have to join with the Classic Space forces, as they can represent themselves (in the League of Non-Aligned Worlds) or join another force such as the Roboforce Alliance, M-Tron Company, Futuron Generational Holdings, Neo Nexus Force, The UFO and Insectoid Leagues, among many others. Usually, Jenny travels with a flotilla of other ships representing a smorgasbord of interests such as those listed above from across the Milky Way. (and beyond!) to each new world, where they each have five Galactic-standard minutes to state there case for their league, and why the world in question should join them. The world can then vote to join a established group, not join any and remove itself from the forum completely in self-imposed seclusion, or join the League of Non-Aligned Worlds. (This league of last resort is a patchwork of rebel colonies, drifting moons, mining asteroids, and separate worlds that is sadly the dumping ground for "everyone else" in the Space Congressional system. It is so fractured that they don't even have a appointed leader, but several semi-leaders of different categories of their members. As no-one is above anyone else, it's pure chaos in that section of the bureaucracy!) The inside of the ship, with one part missing from under the glass dome at the rear (the stellar map of the Lego Galaxy) In front of the cockpit is a storage area for cargo or consumables and the loading ramp. The ship has two forward-facing laser blasters under the main wedge shaped-front end, and three landing legs. The cargo area lifts away, while the passenger area roof folds open 90 degrees or so. This ship seats three figures, too. As usual, the Classic Space logo goes on 4 x 2 nose slope piece. There are two of these little helper bots to populate the inside of the cargo bay of Ambassador Jenny's ship. They are identical, and fit nicely in the space if the antenna is folded in front forward when stored inside the ship. (Only one of the two droids is shown here next to Jenny.) Hopefully this will be built at some point in 2020, as soon as I can find funds... but until then, parts are slowly being accumulated from my storage containers. Any thoughts?

    Classic Space Koenig Monster

    Back in 2017, I finished my second version of the Koenig Monster from the Macross anime series. My first version was about another third larger, but the joints just couldn't handle the weight, and I subsequently decided to downsize and try again. Fortunately, I was able to make it work. Initially, I wanted to use a two-tone tan with red accents as the color scheme, based upon some art I found online, but as I worked on fleshing out ideas in LDD, I discovered to my dismay that a number of the parts I needed weren't available in the tans at the time, and having accumulated a lot of blue and gray, decided, like my first attempt, to just build it in Classic Space colors and styling. It stands about 15 and a half inches tall to the tips of its cannons, transforms without removing parts between all three modes, is fully articulated, and features retractable landing gear in shuttle mode. Since these pics were taken, I've since updated the canopy section with a more line-art accurate access panel using the 4x4 trans-yellow dish from last year's Batcave set. Eventually I'll take some pics. Hope you like. https://www.flickr.com/photos/95379588@N08/44181063412/in/album-72157666939175729/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/95379588@N08/42422129770/in/album-72157666939175729/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/95379588@N08/44181265472/in/album-72157666939175729/

    My first Lego space display

    This is the first proper Lego Space scene I have ever constructed. The display is centred around Classic Space, but I've added some later items and parts (mostly acquired second-hand) for interest. I found most of the Classic Space items and figures at an exhibition more than a year ago, but it was Benny's Space Squad that proved the impetus for doing this scene. The background is from a Klutz 'Lego Make Your Own Movie' book/kit. The base plate was a dark grey clone brand (Wilco Blox) plate until I found two slightly worn classic 'moon' plates on sale for just £6 each in a small independent shop. I quickly snapped up both! What do you think? Any comments or questions welcome.
  13. Elves in space! Surely that must be the next step in the evolution of the theme Two models are from the Classic Space range, the third you might recognize from another space theme. My biggest problem now is that I have more ideas than I have bricks in the right colours I don't think my daughter want me to take apart all of her sets....

    [MOC] Another perfect day in space

    A Classic Space vignette by yours truly. I had a *lot* of fun making this, for sure - it's my first ever serious display scene, and I'm quite proud of it. What do you think? Check the album for more angles and detail shots, and check my signature for a more general-purpose Classic Space collection. Thanks for looking! ^u^

    Classic Space Custom Sticker/Print

    Hey all. So it occurs to me that, now that we have the non-cracked blue updated Classic Space helmet in the Ninjago Gamer’s Market, the only thing we need to make a non-Benny, generic Blue Classic Spaceman is the torso in blue with a non-faded Classic Space logo. (And anyone who bought more than one TLM2 set with Benny will have that, personally I think I have at least four.) The only thing left to do is either create a custom sticker or custom print of the logo and slap it on a spare Benny torso with a classic smiley face and the non-cracked helmet. So, is there anyone more skilled at customisation than me who knows how I’d go about doing that?
  16. Hello, I used to have a large collection of classic space sets (sprinkled with some Futuron and Blacktron II) as a kid in the late 80s / early 90s. Driven by strong nostalgia I decided to buy a set for a showcase. I decided on the 70816 Benny's Spaceship, as the closest modern approximation, and I like it very very much. I also discovered there has been this re-imagining of the classic space theme among the fans with more modern components and building methods. I would very much like to try to build something like the LL-605 Marauder, or LL-497, but I have no idea where to start. I remember the ships of old to be much more blocky, so I assume these are built in a different way, surely utilizing components from modern sets (Star Wars?) that I know absolutely nothing about. Would some kind soul recommend me what would be the best way to accumulate necessary basic pool of bricks for this theme quickly and efficiently (I'm ready to spend several hundred dollars initially) - maybe identify some critical sets, and direct me to either some instructions on basics how such sets are built or even recommend some MOCs with existing manual for me to start with? Thank you.

    Do kids today like Classic Space?

    As someone who had most of the Classic Space sets of the 1970s and early 1980s when they came out, I was thrilled to find out LEGO would be releasing a couple of Classic Space inspired sets as part of the forthcoming TLM 2 range (pictured below). Judging by posts online, lots of other AFOLs of a certain vintage seem to agree. But do kids these days like Classic Space? Will the sets below be hits with AFOLs only or will kids like them too? Or are they too blocky and retro to appeal to LEGO's main demographic?
  18. The space engineers have finally completed their latest project, the LL 75181 BTL-L1 Y-wing Starexplorer with detachable exploration/research module. The Y-wing is heavily modified in the rear to make room for the docking port and necessary reinforcements. The docking system is based on a design used on several older space ships in our fleet. The new module has room for two researchers. On the outside you can see the foldable antennas, an extendable air lock and a small transport ship. Inside you'll find all necessary functions for extended research missions. New adventures await us, beyond the stars! It's considerably smaller than LL 10179...

    toastergrl's Classic Space Fleet

    Hi, denizens of the Sci-Fi forum! Despite being like 30 years too young, Classic Space is definitely one of my favourite themes. I don't want to just pick up the old stuff, though (that'd definitely get expensive) - I want the experience of making my own MOCs and set mods to fit within the ecosystem. To that end, I've finally managed to take a bunch of pictures to show off my stuff. What helped kickstart this stuff was the sheer cheapness and easy availability of 70841-1 Benny's Space Squad, of which I am barely restraining myself from getting multiple copies of. From there, it was an easy leap to 70821-1 Emmett and Benny's Build & Fix Workshop and its Space Cruiser build. I did end up picking the Ideas Exo Suit, but had a few issues with it - it was way too neoclassic for me. I can understand that greebles are of interest to some people, but that level of overdetail is not for me. To that, end, I decided to make my own, classic-style Exo Suit. From there, the rest of this spiralled outwards and upwards to greater and greater heights. Utilising the Mixels ball joint system, my classic-ised Exo Suit is remarkably stable and sturdy, and I think I managed to approximate the studs-exposed, detail-less style of the original sets quite well without having any vintage design to base it on, whilst maintaining some visual continuity with the bulky, large-armed shape of Peter Reid's design. In homage to the original Exo Suit, I think this pilot's name is Yvenny. (Sorry, Pete - your name can't be enny-ised while remaining recognisable!) I've lifted her helmet up a little bit to try and make it look like the classic helmet without having a green version of that part available. Maybe eventually... The Traffic Control building on the right, however, is both more and less original at the same time. While I built it entirely out of parts I had on-hand without adhering to any instructions, the design has ended up quite similar to the space shed packed in with the original Galaxy Explorer. I would have liked to include a Classic Space logo print part, but the dang Benny BrickHeadz is way too expensive now. Oh well... Just a little showing off on how good those ball joint parts on the Exo Suit are. It can hold the space cruiser from 70821-1 Emmett and Benny's Build & Fix Workshop above its head without any external support! (It looks like the antenna on its back is providing some of the support, but I promise you that no weight is on it and it's just a clearance thing!) Benny, of course, is mortified. "Don't drop Jenny and my sibling!" he cries out. Yvenny's doing too good a job to care, though. This goliath is definitely the centerpiece of my collection. I really liked 70816-1 Benny's Spaceship Spaceship SPACESHIP!, but had some qualms with the more ostentatious elements of the design like the flickfire winglets, the rounded nosecone, the Technic missile housings and the excessive greebling across the board. I've made a few customisations to help make it fit in with a simpler-looking crowd! One of my chief missions with the simplification of this thing was to reduce its reliance on Dark Bluish Grey/Dark Stone Grey parts, since that was a big distractor. While I haven't been able to find replacement parts for the underside or the big octagonal plate, things are a LOT cleaner now and I'm much happier for it. You'll also notice I didn't apply any stickers. (Well, that's not quite true - I did apply the computer screen stickers and reactor core stickers on the inside, but I don't have a consistent enough lighting setup to get good shots where they'd be visible.) The way I see it, adding stickers just means a way I can mess this up. I don't have the steadiest hands, and this thing is way too good for that kind of treatment. I named this the "Galaxy Spearhead" in homage to both the Galactic Spearhead and the Galaxy Explorer, two LEGO builds I'm not likely to ever have my own versions of. As much as I like LEGO, it would be irresponsible to have it take over my budget like that... To top it off, a group shot of one of each of the true-classic minifigs I have, plus another angle of the Exo Suit! More pics are available at my Flickr! That's all I have for now, but maybe I'll have more to share later. Thanks for taking a look! ^u^ ---------------------------------------------------- Update #1 - Star Hopper, Transport Buggy, and Mobile Exploration Rover
  20. The Speed Champions line has been a breath of fresh air from Lego for me. Small, impeccably designed sets that were a joy to build and play with. But....But....I am a space head at heart. And I kept saying why doesn't Lego make space sets like these. And then I'd say something about how it is Lego and they don't need to do squat. I can do it. So, MOC 1 of the Space Champions line combines: https://brickset.com/sets/6872-1/Xenon-X-Craft with https://brickset.com/sets/75891-1/Chevrolet-Camaro-ZL1-Race-Car to get the Xenon X2-Craft. Look at how happy he looks with his Space Champion upgrade. Maybe by the time I get to MOC 2 of this theme I'll figure out a way to photograph it so it looks good. It is much better in person and very very swooshible. A few more pictures are there on Flickr. Anyway, I hope you like it. Comments, even negative ones, are always appreciated. -Tohst
  21. Pretty much as soon as pictures of the City Space 2019 sets appeared online, AFOLs were pointing out their conceptual similarities to Classic Space. I have taken that a step further by recolouring one of the 2019 sets, 60224 Satellite Service Mission, making it consistent with the Classic Space sets of the early to mid-1980s. It is not a true retro mod as the parts and building techniques are those of today, not those of 35+ years ago. So it should really be called Neo Classic Space. I replaced the minifigure with one more in keeping with the earlier period. The repositioning of the wingtips, if you're wondering, was not to make the ship more retro. I just think they look better attached underneath than on top. Here is the 2019 set: And here is my mod: I like to think that the satellite to be deployed by the ship will be communicating with the Classic Space mobile station (and ATV) I recreated a few years ago and still in my display collection: I haven't yet decided whether I will retro mod any of the other 2019 City Space sets. If anyone wants to post below their own mod of 60224 or indeed any other of this summer's releases, please do. I would be most interested in seeing what is out there. Questions, comments, classic colour confusion?

    Classic Space Outpost MOC

    Hello everyone. I haven't been out of the dark ages for long - just 3 or so years. Although the Millennium Falcon is what dragged be back into LEGO, my passion has always been with Classic Space. I've spent ages (literally ages) creating this base. I submitted it to LEGO Ideas last year, and then proceeded to making massive changes to it. I have submitted the modified version it to Lego Ideas recently, but would really value a discussion about it with people on this board :)
  23. 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?

    MOC: Brick-Built City Billboards

    8 Billboards so far... by Humble Bricksmith, on Flickr Over the past year, I've been working on making city billboards, depicting classic LEGO themes. Billboards are a great way to add unique flair and character to any LEGO city or diorama. Without using any printed bricks, it becomes very difficult to create small details without scaling up your creation. I figured that billboards are a good compromise between detail and scale. For anyone interested, check out my Flickr, or support me on LEGO Ideas! Also, you're welcome to download LDD or Studio files of these projects Here.
