  1. [MOCombiner] SPYRIUS Crypto Crawler

    I decided to combine my two copies of 6889: Recon Robot into a single Spyrius vehicle. This model doesn't use every piece from both bots, but it does use most of them! The Crypto Crawler is composed of a forward sensory module with eyes and grabbers, a central control module, and a rear storage module which carries tools and a unique payload. The arms are sturdy and can articulate similarly to arms found in official Spyrius sets,.the plane tail pieces give the neck an interesting "lean", and the face of the vehicle is cute and dinosaur-y (maybe a stolen Roboforce design?) A Spyrius minifigure can easily fit inside the middle segment, though access to the control panel there is a little snug. Turntables connecting the segments allow the Crawler to slither around. Turning the end modules to the side also makes accessing the storage boxes easier. Once deployed, the Crypto Crawler's cool cargo requires some re-configuration by Spyrius agents... Voila! This lightweight, fold-out flying vehicle was mostly a way of using up some of the more specialized parts that didn't make it into the main model, but I'm actually very happy with how closely it resembles designs from retro games like Galaga. I started this MOC as an exercise in utilizing a limited parts palette while trying to match the aesthetics of an official theme, and I'm very satisfied with the results. The modular design also means that, if I ever get my hands on a third Recon Robot, I could turn it into additional segments that slot right in to this model! You can find more pictures of the Crypto Crawler on my Bricksafe. Critiques are welcome!
  2. Here we have the Robo-Guardian from the Spyrius subtheme of Lego Space. As a kid, this was my absolute favorite Lego set that I owned. I've always been a huge fan of giant robots, and this was easily the coolest of the era. Owing to their name, the Spyrius focused on interstellar espionage rather than combat. Many sets focused on collecting and transporting small "data pad" tiles. The Robo-Guardian is no exception to this, as we'll soon see. A rear shot of the Robo-Guardian reveals the presence of a small scout craft hidden in the upper torso and a Spyrius Droid in the lower torso. As the robot rolls along a flat surface, the top wheels make just enough contact with the set on the bottom to roll along with them (albiet in the opposite direction). It looks great in motion. While not exactly highly-articulated, the Robo-Guardian can emote a bit! The head can swivel a full 360 degrees on a turntable piece. In addition, one can clearly see the differences between the robot's arms. The right arm features a magnet, while the left arm is equipped with a claw. The gimmick for the shoulder movement is rather clever. An ingenious locking mechanism allows the shoulders to "ratchet" all the way up to an upright position. The arms can also bend inward at the elbow. it's important to note though that the arms can move up, but not down! The ratchet mechanism only works one way, and forcing the arms down could damage the parts. Opening the canopy reveals a couple of specially-printed 2x2 slope bricks, allowing the Spyrius Chief inside to perfectly control this awesome vehicle. At the front of the lower torso the Robo-Guardian possesses a container for the Spyrius data pads. The container is securely locked into place by a pair of hinged arms. Swinging the arms out in the direction of the arrow plates unlocks the container. Simply pull on the front of the container to slide it out of its slot. The panel on the front features a special printing. Perhaps in addition to storage, the container can decode and decrypt the information stored on the data pads. A magnet is fixed to the top of the container as well. Here the container has been opened, and the data pads removed. The special prints are delightfully sci-fi. One can insert the pads with the container open, but it's more fun to slip them through the tiny slots on the front and rear of the container instead. Here the Robo-Guardian is carrying the data pad container via its magnetic "hand". Unfortunately the arm isn't quite long enough for the robot to store the container by itself. As mentioned earlier, the Robo-Guardian has a unique one-way shoulder ratcheting lock for its arms. To release the lock without fully rotating the arms, simply lift up on the corresponding red antenna poking out of the back of the robot. This will unlock the shoulder joint and allow the arm to swing back down to a neutral position. Mentioned previously is a small scout craft that can be tucked away in the upper torso of the Robo-Guardian, accessed from the rear. A pair of small arms with clip hands keeps the craft secure. The easiest way to remove the scout craft is to simply pull it out by grasping the gray protrusions at the front. The arms will fold out to release the vehicle. Here is the scout craft itself. Piloted by a Spyrius Astronaut, it has a pleasant shape. A Spyrius data pad is used to control the vehicle. It seems they have a multitude of uses, beyond securely storing data. Could the trans-green cones be blasters, or simply headlights or sensors? The rear of the scout craft. Three trans-red dishes provide forward propulsion, while small trans-green round plates on the bottom provide vertical thrust. A Spyrius Droid sits safely in the bottom compartment of the Robo-Guardian. A bazooka-like blaster (or long-range camera?) can be stored close by. Flipping the ladder up allows access to the Droid within. In the UK, the Spyrius Droid is known as Major Kartofski, and is actually implied to be the leader of the Spyrius faction! Displaying a very interesting gimmick, the head and lower arms of the Robo-Guardian can be removed and reconfigured to form a medium-sized flight-capable craft. Perhaps this is an escape vehicle. The magnet arm would allow this craft to carry the data pad container to safety. As for defenses, the four backwards trans-green cones could be blasters. A rear view of the head flyer. The black rocket booster element provides forward thrust. Like the scout craft, the trans-green round plates provide vertical thrust. With the Head Flyer off on its own, the main body of the Robo-Guardian can still be controlled. The scout craft can function as a secondary head when attached. It even has a somewhat head-like appearance, with the trans-green cones serving as "eyes". it is however decidedly less intimidating without most of its arms. A rear shot of the "Scout-Guardian" configuration. Presented here are the three minifigures included with this set. In the center is the Spyrius Chief, presumed leader (UK fiction notwithstanding) of the crew, with a Spyrius Astronaut on the left and a Spyrius Droid (secret leader?!) on the right. The Chief and Astronaut are identical save for their face prints and a special print on the Chief's helmet. The Droid is quite awesome, and is the first robotic minifigure in all of Lego Space. And here are the Spyrius busy at work. The Droid scans a faraway target with the scope of his "bazooka". The Chief reads information stored on a Spyrius data pad, while the young Astronaut stores his data, pad in the nearby container. For me, the Robo-Guardian is the jewel of the Spyrius line. It is an excellent, towering, rock-solid robot build with an imposing look and fun gimmicks. A truly stellar "villain" set and one I'm glad to own again. Definitely recommended. I hope you've all enjoyed taking a look taking a look at it with me.
  3. [K-TECH] Spaceship Mastery

    From: Major Kartofski To: CEO Raven Subject: Status Report - Project Star-Lord ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We have taken delivery of the package, and work has begun on Project Star-Lord. The work is proceeding quickly. We are currently using the standard Octan mounts for Dr. Gregorovich's propulsion designs - however, due to structural integrity issues caused by design conflicts between Octan and Kawashita conventions, especially when implemented in a dreadnaught-scale vessel, we are currently operating an ancillary project to develop new mount designs of greater practical value. The hull is currently unpainted. We anticipate that Dr. Gregorovich will remain with us for a further week - until that time, only Spyrius equipment and techs are present, as per your orders. Our initial assessment, supported by small-scale tests, indicate that Dr. Gregorovich's work on direct-conversion power sources will provide an immediate 7% increase in power supply capacity in allied vessels if properly implemented. Retrofitting of direct-conversion reactor plants could yield efficiency increases in excess of 45% for dreadnaught-scale vessels or land-based reactor facilities. Benefits will be smaller for smaller vessels, but are expected to remain significant at all output levels. My commendation to the crew and captain of the Variga. Dr. Gregorovich was delivered unharmed and in full health and, as nearly as we can make out, good spirits. How Octan Corporation's scientific community is able to flourish with such ... difficult individuals at its heart is a subject worthy of further study. The design prototypes the Variga delivered were also in sterling condition, and have proven invaluable to the rapid completion of Project Star-Lord. Approximately two weeks of construction remain. Much of the superstructure has been completed, and currently the pace of construction is limited primarily by available surface area for work. After completion of the vessel, approximately two further weeks for trials and testing will be required. You will be notified when the this period commences - we look forward to turning Project Star-Lord over to Kawashita for its shakedown cruise as quickly as possible. The designs you have provided for "flying hand" construction vehicles have been invaluable in this phase of the construction process. While the inclusion of a second thumb is an ... interesting choice, there can be little doubt that much is owed to the versatility of this design. Project Star-Lord is currently running 17.5 hours ahead of schedule, with no major obstructions anticipated. Go forward with honor.
  4. [K-B06] Package Delivered

    Location: B06 Sorn Tags: Civil, Building, Water Vehicle ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The nice thing about a water world like Sorn is that it has far more usable surface area than a dryer world like Onix. In addition to the planetary surface, many facilities are build submerged in the water or on the seafloor. Many of these are hydroponic farms, but some are research labs. Differences in pressure, buoyancy of materials and staff, and relative safety from espionage satellites and spacecraft are just a few of the reasons for building dry or flooded laboratories in the seas of Sorn. "Is that were you're taking me, then?" "Yes. Spyrius has arranged for you to be delivered here. Once you have completed your work with them, you will be provided compensation, as well as funds sufficient to buy you passage anywhere you want to go." "Spyrius?" "Yes, Spyrius. They're an old company - been around almost as long as Exploriens. They did robotics and stealth technology. They were not, however, a very large business, and a nasty sequence of media disasters more or less finished them. They still have plenty of facilities in the Milky Way, and even a few out here, but they've never really been able to compete. This operation is their bid for a comeback." "How long will this take?" "Not very, I shouldn't think. I'm told that most of what they need is contained in that cargo we took from your courier ship, and the rest shouldn't take long. They don't need to you build anything for them - all they want is your theories." "As if they would tell you," Gregorovich muttered. "I don't take a job until I know all the details," I said. "You will be treated well, and you will be on your way home as soon as possible." "I'll believe that when it happens." I shrugged. "Again, it's your choice. The more you cooperate, the quicker this whole process will be, but I assure you that no one is sending you home until Spyrius has all the information they need from you." "Spyrius?" Silvia asked, after Dr. Gregorovich and his cargo had been left with Spyrius agents. "Yes, didn't I tell you? I was sure I did." "No, sweetheart, you forgot again." "Oh, bother. Sorry. Yes, Spyrius really is a corporation - or was. The Kawashita family bought them up quietly a long time ago - they're a puppet company, but the ownership, I'm told, is buried in seventeen layers of trust funds and holding companies. They still conduct research - things like spaceship design, stealth technologies, alternative propulsion, and the like." "Okay, I get that, but why bother?" "Generally speaking, I would say that it's helpful to have alternate companies to conduct any research you'd rather not be caught doing. In this specific case, the only people Dr. Gregorovich will see, speak to, or hear about will be employees of Spyrius - and ourselves, and he thinks we're mercenaries. Octan doesn't have a file on us and our crew yet, and it could be quite some time before they do. By the time they figure out what was stolen from them and by whom, it'll be to late for reprisals." "Clever." "I know, isn't it? We have no new orders for the time being, and that last mission gave us a splendid little bonus. Set a course, won't you?" "Where to?" "I'm not particular. Somewhere you'd like to go." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Didn't have as much time to work on this as I hoped. The water is not something I'm very proud of. Please note that the Variga is from a previous build and not to be judged.

Spacer Steve- MANTIS found out that I was a Centurion commander in the Spyrius /Unitron wars. I purposefully left it off my resume. I had to do something regrettable for Spyrius. I left for MANTIS as an explorer so I could have a more peaceful life exploring new frontiers, but now it looks like my past has caught up with me. Chogg- Oh Spacer Steve-I should feel lucky that MANTIS only wants me Spy for them now. They could have sent me to Sal Laboratories for punishment.

  8. Hi everyone, I had exhibited at Legoworld the Netherlands with a Space layout. It has been 6 years since I have done something with my Space collection. The last time I had everything in one landscape, but this time I wanted to separate all the sub-themes in different landscapes. The landscapes are also in time sequence. In the landscapes you can see the overlap of some subthemes. One other idea was to connect the worlds with each other with a monorail. The monorail set 6990 was the set to connect all the worlds. The first set is from 1986 and the time line ends at 2011 (Alien Conquest). I do have Space Police III, but I did not have the bricks to create one more landscape. I do not have Mars Mission or Roboforce, because of lack of interest. The link to the pictures: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=549231 I hope you like it. Sander
