  1. This was Classic Space forces secret weapon against any potential uprisings of any alien, robot, or human race in the Galactic Space Congress. I say WAS because it's listening post was never used due to a planted Blacktron bomb sending the station and it's final adjustments crew hurtling through hyperspace toward a black-hole in early 1988 during the early hours of the attempted Blacktron coup. The station was never recovered and almost all of the crew was presumed killed by the black hole except for Benny, who fell off the station before it reached full light speed. (He survived a day floating out of conciseness in orbit off Jupiter II before being found by retreating Congressional forces. Benny still wears the broken helmet and smudged suit from that day as a reminder of the eternal sacrifice of his fellow two crew members that were lost.) The satellite featured both a dual fusion reactor system and solar panels in eight moving segments as a backup in case of emergency. This was to keep the communication / trajectory equipment's backup batteries charged for several hundred-thousand years.... you never know how long this station would have been needed! The smaller ship that is shown docked with the station is for the engineering / maintenance crews to keep an eye on the satellite's systems until final boot-up was preformed. Their were two such linkup stations on the station, opposite each other on the middle ring segment of the central core. The rear of the ship. I was inspired to create the engine pods on the space station after seeing a older post by Flickr user Karf Oohlu as seen here. The access hatch to the inside of the station is visible at the extreme rear near the two engines. The engineering vessel is supposed to seat two astronauts, and on the day of the attack, the second ship was being remotely piloted by Benny to a supply ship for more parts to complete the vessel prior to full boot-up. (That's why in the main picture, it's not shown. It's just out of frame, just two minutes before the Blacktron attack happened.) The ships seats two astronaut figures to maintain the station. This vessel was inspired by the look of upcoming set 70821 (Emmett and Benny's Build & Fix Workshop), which I was able to reverse engineer / guess / improve upon for most of the Classic Space ship model. As you may have guessed, all five of the 4 x 2 slopes except for the two right / left flanking ones on this smaller ship should be printed with this print. I plan on using the white, yellow, and pink astronauts for the lost classic space crew of Classic Space station Upsilon. Benny was also part of this 1988-vintage crew, but managed to loosen himself from the Blacktron-sabotaged space station before it reached the black hole whereupon it vanished, presumed destroyed, with it's crew (minus Benny, who was badly damaged but ok) dead. Thirty-one years later in 2019, the station is found floating in the a very far-off quadrant, completely iced over. The crew are flash-frozen in mid-step of whatever they were seemingly doing in 1988, and the main computer is barely running on emergency battery power. The crew are gradually thawed out, and the clock on the computer is checked: over 200,000 years have gone by in from strange time-vortex which deposited the ship in the very distant past. The fusion reactors are restarted, and the computer begins to fully wake up. The computer explains the ice and flash-freezing is from the trip to the past, but Benny mentally notes his friends were actually active at the point when they left the black hole, according to the ship's security cameras. Benny then turns to face the computer mainframe to ask it a question, only to see it entering it's user interface "eye" shift from trans-yellow to trans-red as Benny's own eyes widen... NOTES: I would have put this SHIP (which stands for "Serious Huge Investment in Parts", in case you didn't know!) in with my other Classic Space stuff, but I think it's best to keep mini-figure scale and micro-scale things separate. Anyway, this is my first SHIP and should be built in real life by next SHIPtember (2019) for sure. EDIT: main post edited and pictures revised 12/9/18. Comments, questions, suggestions, complaints and such are always welcome.
  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 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 base - 10228 MOD This is the Classic Space command center for Benny's fleet. The building swings open and locks shut on a Technic pin. Building model backstory up to 1988: In 1903, the successful banking tycoon Randolph Keystone died, leaving his business, stately Victorian mansion, and fortune to his only daughter, the budding mathematical genius Sylvia. She and her husband, George Star, would take her father's business to new heights, but also take her education to the forefront of mathematics and science, with a fixation on astronomy and rocketry. Her great grandson, Benjamin (Benny) Star, would sell the family banking business to much of the community's dismay in the mid 1970's, and then began to fill the Victorian mansion with many electronic gadgets, a huge Radar Array, and a large mainframe computer. He also became a college-educated astronomy major, astrophysicist and NASA test pilot dropout (too radical in rocket design for their tastes) before leveling the grounds in what used to be the Victorian hedge maze and gardens just in time for the newly-formed Classic Space force to come knocking at his door in 1978 while looking for a home base. They built tall security walls and a gate around where he had leveled the ground, plus adding noise deadening technology to the house to keep the home's windows from shattering every time a ship took off. Several years later, a bigger spaceport was completed nearby, and by 1986, Benny's rather small base was considered too tiny for use by the newest capital ships and is now used only by commander Benny's personal fleet as of 1988. The rear of the house. Inside the building on the front half on the lowest floor is the receptionist desk, model rocket, and chalkboard with notes on it hanging on the wall. The next floor up features a model city with monorail, table with lamp, and the relic detector from the LEGO Movie. Finally, the attic features a 1960's cleaning bot (inspired by this design by fellow builder @Kristel) and a radio telescope computer. In the rear half of the command center on the lowest floor is a TV showing a short documentary film about Classic Space forces to potential new recruits, a refreshment station for the break room, and the exit to the base proper. The new level shows Benny's office, with his desk, a large trophy, and a supercomputer mainframe behind his chair. The final level shows another radio telescope computer and the control panel that powers the communication dish on the building's tower roof back on the front half. Classic 1950's Moonraker automobile This is Benny the 1980-something space guy's 1955 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. The 1950's car was originally a @hachiroku design of a Hudson Hornet that I modified into being build-able for Benny and my Classic Space base. You can see the original model here. I also took inspiration from set 10232 (Palace Cinema) for the rear taillights and the top of the hood. I even added bumblebee stripes on either side, just like on my MOD of Benny's spaceship. (set 70816) The car also has a spare tire located on the trunk. The entire roof of the car lifts away to place Benny at the controls. 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 @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...) 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 each of the engine units is the dual drivers compartments, located on either side of the tread behind the square openings. The cargo sections haul four sealed containers of very volatile fuel apiece, with the entire train seen here hauling eight crates. (this will supply the base for up to three months of fuel) You can see here the fuel as it is being readied for transport, just before being sealed in the boxes and set inside the vehicle. 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. EDITED 12/4/18: added the just-finished command center (10228-MOD) real life photo's to the first post! As usual, Comments, questions and complaints are always welcome!
  3. Everyone remembers galaxy squad. Some liked it, some didn't. But everyone can probably agree that it was our last original,thought out, classic space theme. I liked it, but probably not the kids. At least that's what I suspect, considering the mark downs at Walmart. Because "nooooooo no no no"! Kids didn't want this. They wanted this! "Sigh" So where does that leave us? Stuck buying something like this? So I'm thinking "If kids want Star Wars, why not make sets aimed towards adults?" Creator Expert Series anyone? Why not make a $100 to $500 dollar classic space for AFOL? What do you think?

    (WIP) Cyberpunk City MOC

    Hello everyone, I would like to present to you my Cyberpunk City MOC inspired by Ninjago City and envisioned after going to a local LEGO convention. I don’t have a cool name for the city yet. I would like to get this MOC finished by next summer. The buildings are modular-esque. The buildings currently include a grocery store, a garage, a Chinese restaurant, a police station and an ice cream parlor. I am not yet sure what other buildings I’ll put in this MOC. The police station is going to be two stories and I’ll have a second story of shops above the section with the ice cream parlor. I am also not focusing on making interiors for these buildings even if there are some details inside. The next part of this MOC is a police cruiser. It is a modified version of the police car in 70802 Bad Cop’s Pursuit with swapped parts and substitutions. The second vehicle build in this MOC is a transport truck. It is a heavily modified version of 7686 Helicopter Transporter. I am planning on adding a trailer of some sort to it. That is all I have got so far. I hope you enjoy the progress so far. I have had a good time working on this MOC for the least few months and can’t wait to keep working on it. Also, @leafan because he wanted to see this.

    Ice Planet 2002: SkiBot 2002

    "SkiBot 2002, at your service!" An autonomous scout robot for freezing environments where no man has gone before. Can also be used for small transport, hench the pouches it carries.
  8. Hey Eurobricks I wanna share with you my new project - a First Order Resurgent-class Star Destroyer in UCS-scale. To avoid another long time MOC in WIP Nirvana I started this time with little help from LDD. Dimensions, main frame, angles... took me about a year to set these parts. Because of the LDD file I generated instructions and and part lists for me. On the picture you can see an early version of the ship and one of the latest with much more details. For the moment only one digital render of the ship. There will be some adjustments/tweaks in the "real" version but most of it works fine for me. I already finished the main frame with the instructions... and its good! More pictures will be on flickr Greetings Kommander

    Kassiopeia Exploration Vessel

    Hey! While working on my Resurgent-class SD I created this MOC. Started as tablescrap and turned out pretty well as microscale spacecraft SO - thats the reason behind the KASSIOPEIA Exploration Vessel. It roughly took me about 10 hours. Source1 Source2 Greetings Kommander
  10. This is the Asteroid 7 Gas Station, run by ex-Black Hole gang members Squidman and Squidtron inside the shell of the old burned-out Squidman's Pitstop. The Asteroid 7 is part of a small chain of gas stations that are independent from Octan Corp, using a competing brand (also called Asteroid 7) that has slipped through Lord Business' finger's more times than he'd like to admit. As the two Squid-beings built the station on the wreck of their old hideout they were able to incorporate some carry-over features such as hidden weapons systems, a top-notch defense grid, and a self-destructing reactor, just in case. Here is the repair bay, where Squidtron stores his tools to work on customers hover vehicles. As he is a cyborg, he can access schematics for any make or model from the internet directly to his brain, and then work on the car just as well as any seasoned expert, even if he'd never seen the car type before. When he is done, all he has to do is store the info in the station's main super-computer, and delete the local file from his head to save space for the next job. The pay desk has a wall-mounted computer screen to help keep track of who is where on the ground premises or airspace at any time. As the station is on a back-water hyper-way, it is not well used. The only ones who travel by are either those who should be there, as in refugees seeking shelter from Space Police IV officers, ones who should not be there, as in the hated SP officers seeking runaways, and finally, lost travelers looking for some way point they missed. True travelers who are not lost are a rarity indeed. The fission reactor provides the fuel for the customers, making Coaxium in three different refined qualities for customers to buy, much like gasoline was bought in three types back on old Earth. (The reactor makes Coaxium as Nuclear waste, which is used in hover engines as fuel.) The Coaxium fission reactor provides three different varieties of hover fuel for cars, trucks, and speeder bikes. The difference between trucks (white) and cars (green) is determined by engine rating, while speeder bikes is kinda obvious. (yellow) In reality, I was inspired by set 5980 (Squidman's Pitstop) and a set of tile alphabet (that I used for my double-sided GAS sign) by Steve Throm as showcased on New Elementary here. I plan on using this 4 x 2 tile for the "Asteroid 7" logo, with the word "Asteroid" spelled out in 1 x 1 tiles above on the other, smaller sign next to the "GAS" one. This may be built sometime next year (2019), if possible. Comments, suggestions, questions, and complaints welcome!
  11. This smaller space freighter is meant to get smaller, yet very dense loads through heavy planetary blockades without being noticed due to shape-and-trajectory-jamming technology and four experimental high speed engines that can let them outrun all but one of the ships in the Space Police IV armory. The name of this extraordinary vessel is the RES-Q and was built by Jack Stone Industries as a one off before they were absorbed into Octan Corporation. Mr. Stone himself destroyed the plans and took the ship and a bunch of spare parts to a hidden asteroid at great personal risk (he was killed by Lord Business for this later on), where it was picked by it's current pilot and crew who then joined the Resistance against the Space Police IV. The ship features two laser guns near the lower engines, (in trans yellow, on the light bluish gray bars) and two large fins with RES-Q printed on them from the ill-fated Jack Stone theme. The rear of the ship and the four huge engines. This section also has the hidden cargo compartment, which is accessible via the folding roof section. The name of the alien figure of the left is Kranxx. In the almost ten years since the fall of the Black Hole Gang he has put his organizing and secret-gathering skills to better use now that he is a part of the resistance against the outright corrupt Space Police IV. He runs the blockade runner space freighter RES-Q alongside his pilot Valkyrie or "V" as she is known informally by the group. Valkyrie (on the right) is from the Marvel Universe and was sent to the LEGO Universe on accident by the Bifrost. She was found floating in space by Kranxx, and he helped her to learn about her new home in a strange and unfamiliar universe. As a pilot, her skills are unmatched by any organic, non-augmented being found so far. "V", as she likes to be called, also has started to have feelings for Kranxx.... though it remains to be seen if he returns the affections! In reality, this is a modification of set 75178. (Jakuu Quadjumper) I removed the exploding engines feature, added yellow parts instead of the regular dark orange, and changed the main windscreen to trans-light blue. The figures are a mix of Star Wars, Space Police III, and Marvel. Comments, Question, Complains, and suggestions, are always welcome!
  12. From some time I've been thinking about small tracked vehicles. But I did not have proper link treads ;) I also had no idea what wheels could fit them...

  13. ICE PLANET IS BACK! My latest build is an armoured vehicle decked out in Ice Planet livery used by the peaceful men as a mobile research laboratory. Ice Planet 2002 was a subtheme of LEGO Space introduced in 1993 and marked by a very cool color scheme: white, blue and trans-neon orange. Even if I've never played with these paceful guys (at that time I was a teen with other interests on my head) I've always appreciated this series. The ground vehicle is not equipped with weapons but with a lot of retro space components. Ice Planet are in fact engaged in secret researches about renewable energy rather than interplanetary wars. The canopy opens to expose a detailed little interior with such an assortment of retro-tech computers and equipment. More info and pictures here. I hope you like it The Ice Planet vehicle joins the other space armoured vehicles I built in the last few years: 1) Space Tank in Classic Space livery; 2) White Tiger Futuron Tank; 3) UFO Shado Mobile Evo; 4) B-59 Blacktron APC. Thanks for stopping by.

    Strategic StarHound

    My latest MOC is the Strategic StarHound: This is a Futuron mech based on the old Strategic Pursuer. https://brickset.com/sets/6848-1/Strategic-Pursuer I basically made a bigger version. The arms, legs, and red floodlights (is that what they are?) are all poseable. Hopefully I can add some more pictures later. Hope you all like it.

    T-70 X-WING

    This is a MOC of the T-70 X-Wing from the Resistance, in both Poe Dameron's Black Leader (black and orange) and the generic fighter version (blue and grey). This MOC has been inspired not only on one but by several others creations i've found on the internet. Though i've combined several elements from these builds, most of the design is mine. Anyone willing to build this MOC or to know more about it please contact me through the comments. The main pages about this MOC are on the following links: https://bricksafe.com/pages/marcanadell4/t-70-x-wing I might post other low-resolution images in the replies. The Stud.io rendered images are can be seen and downloaded on the links that I've given in the description.

    Hello Lego Fans!

    Hi, my name is Rafael and I am from Germany. I got out of my Dark Ages a couple months ago and want to become a contributing member of the community. This forum seems awesome for that! I am now 34 and still have fond memories of playing with Legos as a kid. The best christmas was when I got the Fire Breathing Castle. This was so much fun. But I also liked the space theme a lot. Lego was the best toy ever, due to the possibilities it presented. It's funny how most of us get sidetracked with other things just to realize later how awesome it still is. I still like to get sets and build them at least once, and except maybe for the odd really awesome set, I will keep it displayed for some time. But ultimately it's all about taking it apart and building something new out of it. I really like to build alternate MOCs from just one set. It limits the amount of possibilities, sure, but also makes it challenging and one has to think of potentially new ways of building something, compared to having all the pieces at disposal. But obviously completely free MOCs using everything thats possible are awesome too. Haven't done anything big so far, but I am sure that time will come! Right now I am working on a Harry Potter themed MOC for a Halloween event, in which I show a scene from my Hogwarts RPG campaign. My three players are all first years at Hogwarts in 1984 and of course found their way into the Forbidden Forest! ;) But usually I am leaning towards creating Scifi-themed MOCs, like Mechs and Spaceships. Especially looking into a Lego-based tabletop game called Mobile Frame Zero and its spaceship spin-off Intercept Orbit right now. And for that matter I kinda thought that I wanted not only to sit alone (or my fiance) and put bricks together, but actually share my creations and hopefully add fun to other people's lifes as well. So I started a youtube channel sharing tutorial videos of my MOCs, as well as other related Lego topics, like Vlogs and Reviews! Please check out my youtube channel if you like, Maranar bricks: http://bit.ly/maranarbricks There is also a Flickr page: http://bit.ly/2xik2g0 Greetings! Maranar / Rafael
  17. Hi! I wanted to show off my first fleet I build. It's mostly for a game called Mobile Frame Zero: Intercept Orbit. I haven't played the game yet, though. To make it potentially more interesting I added a bit of background fluff. There is also a short Youtube video about this fleet, if you are inclined to rather watch that instead: I made a couple of instruction videos as well: Intercept Orbit Playlist But now to the fleet: Terran Defense Union Fleet GreyFleet001 by Maranar _bricks, on Flickr The TDU values their assets and uses defensive tactics to gain the upper hand in any conflict. Each ship is equipped with defensive systems, based on their shield ring technology. Nevertheless, Terran Command knows the importance of offensive capabilities and tries to balance these within their ship designs. GreyFleet007-Intercept Orbit-Long Range Capital Ship by Maranar _bricks, on Flickr //>Designation: TDU Malteriton //>Combat Role: Long Range Capital Ship //>Loadout: #System01: Support Range Weapon - Railgun #System02: Communication Sensor #System03: Communication Sensor #System04: Defense - Shield System --Description: This slow and hulking capital ship is the seat of the commander and designated as mobile command center. She is equipped with a long range railgun and sophisticated sensor equipment, allowing the commander to collect intricate sensor data of the surrounding space and objects. GreyFleet010-Intercept Orbit-Capital Assault Cruiser by Maranar _bricks, on Flickr //>Designation: TDU Ceratid //>Combat Role: Capital Assault Cruiser //>Loadout: #System01: Assault Range Laser (Paired) #System02: Assault Range Laser (Paired) #System03: Point Range Bombardment #System04: Defense - Shield System --Description: This menacing capital ship is designed to bring as much fire power to the opposition as possible. She wants to be closer to the battle taking the attention away from the command ship. It is rather hard to ignore this offensive power house. As is it custom for the TDU, every ship is equipped with defensive systems through their shield rings. GreyFleet014-Intercept Orbit-Railgun Frigate by Maranar _bricks, on Flickr //>Designation: TDU Gladibrach //>Combat Role: Assault Frigate //>Loadout: #System01: Assault Range Weapon - Railgun (Paired) #System02: Assault Range Weapon - Railgun (Paired) #System03: Defense - Shield System --Description: The assault frigate fulfills a similar role to the assault cruiser, but its improved mobility allows for more strategic strikes at high value targets. The inability to fight at point blank range has to be taken into account when choosing its target. GreyFleet019-Intercept Orbit-Assault Frigates by Maranar _bricks, on Flickr //>Designation: TDU Totidius and Sepiidus //>Combat Role: Interceptor Assault Frigate //>Loadout: #System01: Assault and Point Range Weapon #System02: Spotting Sensor #System03: Defense - Shield System --Description: These two interceptor assault frigates are placed in a supporting role by bringing their sensors in, helping the more offensive ships to do their jobs. Nimble and fast, as well as flexible in combat, they are an important part of the fleet.

  18. This Orbital Laser Strike Satellite, belongs to APOPHIS constellation. This military satellite constellation makes use of special secret-satellite-super-weapons to annihilate objective on Earth: bunker, shelters, hangars, vehicles, buildings, aircrafts, ships, cruise missiles, ICBMs. Operate surgical and sensitive operations. This satellite carry a powerful laser system that can identify and neutralize the threat in a few seconds. To accomplish his task the laser hit the target with a train of brief pulses of light. The rapid evaporation and expansion of the surface causes shockwaves that damage and destroy the target. This satellite use a chemically powered gas dynamic laser, with compresion of the gas generated and powered by 4 photovoltaic panel.

  19. Blacktron is back! Hello from Italy! Tonight I share my latest build: a big, bad and totally black armoured personnel carrier. It's based on U-59 Explosive Truck from Joe 90, a 1960s British science-fiction television series created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson (the same producers of U.F.O. It's called B-59 where B stands for Blacktron, in fact this six-wheel APC is the new and lethal groud vehicle of Blacktron. The little ATV on the right is based on the Amphicat, a six-wheel-drive, skid steer amphibious all-terrain vehicle manufactured in the '60s by Mobility Unlimited Inc. of Auburn Hills, Michigan. The Amphicat was also used by Moonbase Alpha personnel in the television series Space: 1999. Back view and tank entrance. The interior with many details. This time thanks - to a friend of mine who is a pro-filmmaker - I produced a presentation video of the B-59. Below on YT. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by! B-59 on flickr.

    How successful was Galaxy Squad?

    I just started buying Lego sets again after a long dark age, so Galaxy Squad was a couple of years before I started paying attention to Lego. I have some questions about it: How successful was Galaxy Squad at the time it came out? It seems well-regarded by AFOLs now, but did it sell well? Was it planned as a single-year release, or did it not perform well enough in the market to be continued as a line? In your opinion, what does the performance of Galaxy Squad say about the viability of non-licenced space themes in the future?
  22. This model was heavily inspired by A Plastic Infinity / Arcane Sweetie Belle's old (2012-ish) build, as seen here on Flickr. I took the basic design of the ship seen there and added newer parts and an updated color-scheme. This Unidentified Flying Object is meant to be the space ship of two of the Unikitty! CMF Alien Puppycorn figures' species. The ship without the figures. The trans yellow cones are simple forward-fixed laser weapons, but don't be deceived: they are only part of the defense grid on this ship! The rear of the ship features two engines, while the lime green 2 x 2 round tiles on the hinged tail are supposed to have this print here for a national symbol. The cockpit can seat two pilot figures and the roof is quite tall, so their unicorn horns can fit. The cockpit hinges to allow access to the inside to place the figures at the controls. The pilots of the ship, as best I could recreated in LDD. They are supposed to be two of these figures here. As usual, any comments, questions, suggestions and / or complaints are welcome. I plan on building the ship in real life after getting my final Classic Space models in order later this year / early 2019, but the alien figures are already on the way right now.
  23. This Orbital Kinetic Strike Satellite, belongs to APOPHIS constellation. This military satellite constellation makes use of special secret-satellite-super-weapons to annihilate objective on Earth: bunker, shelters, hangars, vehicles, buildings, aircrafts, ships, cruise missiles, ICBMs. Operate surgical operations, or devastating attacks. This satellite use 8 electromagnetic rail-gun to shot very hard tungsten carbide rode, accelerate to Mach 20. The destructive effects of this weapon is very substantial compared to other super-weapons of APOPHIS constellation. To maintain and correct orbit this satellite use hydrazine trusters, while satellite systems are powered by two large photovoltaic panel. Cannons are powered by fuel cells, that after 16 shots are exhausted.

    [MOC] Lego Spy Satellite

    Spy satellite from the military and secret constallation APATE. This type of satellite carry two very sensitive and very high resolution photo and video camera, capable to detect the face of a person on the ground on Earth, also their camera can be used in night time thanks to IR sensors installed. The satellite it's powered by two photovoltaic panel and can communicate with Earth with antennas and one parable. To correct and maintain the orbit the satellite use hydrazine trusters.
