  1. (When the base and any other digital creations are built in real life, I will add those pictures into this page.) This is the beginning of a journey through the wormhole to a mini-figure called Benny and a civilization on the cusp of greatness. His continuing mission: to seek out new lifeforms, to explore unknown worlds, all in the name of of science and awesomeness. The year is 1980-something, the name of the theme is Classic Space. Classic Space fortress walls The base as it was ordered... will post a picture of the complete setup when built in real life. Here is the main gate. It can open up all the way to allow the 8-stud wide ground vehicles though. Two of these parts go next to the gate where the un-printed 4 x 2 slopes are. This is one of twelve walls sections, held together with the other modules by four Technic pins.(two on each side) This is one of four of the corner modules. I redesigned these since last time to be less parts intensive and have fewer gaps in the wall. Classic Space HQ / Benny's home This building model was inspired by sets 7641 (City Corner), 31026, (Bike Shop + Cafe). This building is Benny's home and the backup classic space command center. The delivery door out back was designed for semi-truck deliveries to the model rocket shop that originally occupied the building, but now serves as the entrance to the base. (NOTE: watch your head, as this is a very cramped area!) Downstairs is the old model rocket store showroom, with a model Utopian city (with monorail!) and 1980's video game cabinet "Astro Nut". Benny keeps the sales counter the way it was in the old days, as a reminder of the building's heritage. Inside and upstairs is the living area with the huge 1970's super computer LL9000 taking up a sizable amount of space at the top of the stairs. On the upstairs level as well is the cooking area and sleeping quarters, where Benny has a TV to record his favorite shows on VHS tapes... old habits die hard I guess! Classic 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 opening 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 11/5/18: added the just-finished secure cargo transporter's (75217 MOD) real life photo's to the first post! As usual, Comments, questions and complaints are always welcome!

    [MOC] Ferrari Dino 246

    New build still a WIP, but happy now with the shaping, just need to finalise the internals and doors, let me know what you think.
  3. This model is revamped version of set 41134 (Heartlake Performance School) with parts of set 10217 (Diagon Alley) and a heavily modified version of the truck from set 75972 (Dorado Showdown) thrown together to make this classical styled bank. The time-frame is set in the mid to late Roaring Twenties, when gangsters like Al Capone ruled Chicago's speakeasies and bank robbers such as Bonnie & Clyde ran rampant across the USA. (Of course, the law was always at their heels, and eventually justice was served.) This is the fourth version, which is set to replace my Gringotts bank model, which has become a sore spot on my layout as it's just too small. As before, this bank features a fancy entrance with Greek columns going up and creating a balcony on the second and third floors. The model features a detailed interior, and is open-able like a dollhouse to provide access to the inside. Also, the black 1 x 4 brick above the front door should have this BANK print on it. The rear of the bank has a second story fireplace flue. The model is open-able like a dollhouse to provide access to the inside, as you can see by the hinges on this side. Inside the front half and on the lower floor, we have two tellers desk with spots for four customers total. The upper floor features counting desks, along with half of the the money-filled vault. The lower floor on the back half features a staircase to the upper floor, a controlled access point to the behind-the-scenes part of the bank and the bank managers desk. The upper floor features the other half of the vault with the rest of the $14,800 in hundred dollar bills. (I transferred all the green bricks into 1x2 plates, then times by 100 to get that number.) This model was partially inspired by 2019 Overwatch set 75972 (Dorado Shwodown) which I reverse engineered from a picture last week into the front half of the truck seen here. The rear of the truck. The rear double-doors open to stash valuables, the roof section comes off, and the driving compartment seats one mini-figure. Thank you for looking at these models. Any comments, be they helpful, quizzical, or critical are welcome at any time. Thanks again for reading!
  4. This is Classic Space forces' top-secret backup command space station, LL-002 (named Cosmic Command Station Upsilon or CCSU for short) that was built in case the home planet of the Classic Space astronauts was destroyed in battle or otherwise made inhabitable to provide a base of operations for a counter-attack and to keep the CS forces from falling into chaos from the the lack of a command structure. This vessel was designed as a cross between a small space station and a a very large space dreadnought, though don't be fooled into thinking it doesn't move: CCSU (or Upsilon Base as it is known in the higher reaches of Classic Space ranks), has two very powerful ion engines to keep the ship mobile in real space. The ship also is light-speed capable and features two wings of 6 fighters each tucked in two sections of the ship near the front and rear of the vessel. The ship without the space background, but with the micro Benny's spaceship(!) still in view. The black A-frame parts are supposed to hold the ship up while it's sitting on a shelf, (as a built-in stand) and a lengthy Technic axle spine helps it keep it's rigidity. (I hope!) 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. (see it here) The side view as requested on Flickr for use in the eventual SHIPtember 2018 poster. Also, all 168 of those trans-black 1 x 2 tiles are supposed to have this print, as they are solar panels to supplement the ship's power supply. The four 4 x 2 slopes are going to have this Classic Space logo print on them. The red and the black strip is exactly 100 stud's long.. my ship is just barely over that at 103 studs long. Micro Benny's spaceship(!)... not much else to say. It is not technically "in scale" with the space station, but it's close enough. 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. Comments, questions, suggestions, complaints and such are always welcome.
  5. All, After more then 2 year without working on a new Technic MOC I am now ready to present my new project: A classic roadster based on a Jaguar XK120. I managed to built it in white and separate the frame and the bodywork completety. Due to this there is also a frame version with full RC. It can be build in red and black as well without major adaptations. More pictures, video and instructions to follow....

    Hello!

    Greetings fellow members! I´m an Attorney-at-Law living in in Honduras which is located in Central America. I have played with LEGO´s since childhood, and now, as an adult, I want to start a collection of classic LEGO sets. Looking forward to learn a lot from this community. Kind regards,
  7. The classic 1967 Ford Eleanor GT500 was a fearsome beast in its day, with a 428 cubic inch big block rippling the pavement courtesy of an astounding 355 horsepower. It's also the car made famous as "Eleanor," Steve McQueen's awesome ride in the original 1974 movie Gone In Sixty Seconds. With so much heritage to this classic car, I knew this build had to reflect that hardcore stance and styling everyone grew to love. 1967 Eleanor Mustang- let’s drive by lachlan cameron, on Flickr In an attempt to stay true to the mechanics and design, I began with the classic live axle rear suspension and an inboard suspension style in the front with Ackerman steering and torsion bar. 1967 Eleanor Mustang- Chrome engine block, gold pistons, red chrome wheels - by lachlan cameron, on Flickr I threw my new red chrome rims on the car just for a quick photo with lots of bling :) 1967 Eleanor Mustang by lachlan cameron, on Flickr The car also sports front and rear headlights, motorized hood and trunk, 2 XL motors for drive, 1 servo motor for steering, 2 Buwizz batteries in the trunk, a chrome V8 engine block with gold pistons, working fan and blower, snap back doors. 1967 Eleanor Mustang by lachlan cameron, on Flickr I did try to follow the shape of the car closely, as you can see in the overlay below: 1967 Eleanor Mustang by lachlan cameron, on Flickr After so many new challenges on this car I'm fairly satisfied with the outcome. So sit back, grab a cuppa and check the video! And as always - a huge thanks to my brother @DugaldIC , @KD123 & @technic_addict for their support throughout this build.
  8. Hi all. I'd like to share a MOC I made over a year ago which I only just got around to photographing recently. Our fearless heroine on long range patrol, will she make it back? 919 CS Spaceship Right Side v1 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr Of course she will! Classic Space Welcome Home - Front On by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr Close up Classic Space Welcome Home - Close Up by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr Angle shot of base Welcome Home - Left Side by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr And I also had a bit of fun with photoediting... so here is an attempt at some box art. 919 CS Spaceship Left Side Box Art by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr And here is a photo of the various sides of the spaceship itself: CS Spaceship Multiple Views by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr I had a lot of fun building this. I wanted to do something with the new trans yellow windscreens (well new at the time anyway!) and built that area... and then built the engine... and then had to figure out how to connect them together! I like how sleek it ended up. I confess to swooshing it a few times... ;-) I also played around with greebling on the underside and that turned out to be surprisingly tricky to do, my hat is off to those people who make it look effortless. I referred to it as 919 mainly because it is closest to 918 -"One Man Spaceship", which is the largest Classic Space ship I had as a kid. But I didn't set out to make an update to 918... I just wanted to build a Classic Space ship... :-) Larger resolution pics available on flickr for those who like that kind of thing. Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking.

    1968 FIAT 500 F

    An Italian Classic Together with Gabriele Zannotti aka zanna I've been working on a scale model of a FIAT 500 for almost two years now. I've actually already made a topic on EB a while ago but the model has improved a lot since then and we also took some cool pictures of the real life model so I decided it would be appropriate to post a new thread. The model As it stands right now the model is made of 1210 pieces and has plenty of details and features to offer. The boot which is located at the front can be opened revealing the fuel tank, a toolbox and an actual spare tyre. The bonnet in the back is decorated with several custom decals depicting the various cooling vents as well as the license plate and additional details. It can be opened which allows you to see the detailed 500cc straight twin engine. Furthermore, the doors can be opened and the front seats tilted forward allowing you to access the rear seat bench. On sunny days you can also swap out the closed sun-roof for the opened variant. Boot details The rear end Openable doors and hatches The engine bay Dashboard details Foldable seats Open roof Thanks for checking out our topic. Additional images can be found in both Gabriele's flickr page and mine. Our model is still very much a work in progress and we keep improving the build and adding new details. We've actually uploaded our model to LEGO Ideas and it has already surpassed 7.5k but your support would be greatly appreciated so we can meet the 10k goal in time.
  10. Hey guys, Long time no see! I thought I would pop back in and share my latest castle project! It's a re-imagining of the classic Black Falcon's Fortress from the 80s! And if you are like me and think it's time LEGO brought back some classic castle stuff please go give it some support on LEGO Ideas!

    New Classic Space Monorail

    In the monorail system that I have been developing on and off since 2013 (from the Hidaka monorail that uses a City prototype of the Osaka monorail), I have built a Classic Space monorail train. The train has a new drive-train and is geared down 5:3 so that the heavier train will climb well. It is still based on a train motor but I stopped using belt drive. The average speed is up to 0.57m/s. The lights on the right-hand axle will flash when the train moves. This uses the other channel of the IR Receiver. The battery box (AAAs or LiPo) is behind the Space logo and is easy to change. There is a removable module system. The module on the train unfolds to become a scooter. There is a medical stretcher module and a power module on the ground. It has proven to be reliable on my loft layout. I will do a video in due course. I need to get the lighting right as it was too dark last time I did a video in the loft. As well as a second Classic Space train and a 2-motor goods train with extra wagons, I have prototypes for Futuron, Blacktron and M-Tron trains. More pics of the system here Mark

    [MOC] Honoring the Monolith

    Introduction; This MOC is my first attempt, specified in landscape, of this size. The Story; "... In a galaxy far far away, somewhere in one of its corners, there is an unknown and isolated planet. In the center of the area where life has been developed, lies its oldest structure. A stone column with unknown carvings. But this is not the only peculiar thing about it. Every year, it lights up on its own and an abrupt hum is emitted. The next moment, something magical is happening! It's like the whole planet is coming alive - a heady aroma is overflowing everywhere, the flowers bloom, animals wake up and everyone enjoys this magical moment. This day has arrived, and all three tribes of the planet have gathered to celebrate the day of life. Everything rolls pleasantly, until a clank and a thunder shakes the calm atmosphere that prevails ... " 1. Honoring the Monolith MOC by George Patelis, on Flickr 2. Crashing Site 3. Crash Crater 7.

The set is new sealed although the left circle seal is peeling which is apparently a very common problem with the sets. Please PM me with serious offers if you are interested. I am willing to ship internationally but I have never shipped international before so allow me extra days to fill out forms properly. I am also willing to trade this set for the original 326 Cottage set from 1965, but I would let it with instructions and preferably the box. Thanks, -RailCo

  19. Alright then. It's almost here this twenty-eighteen...and time is ticking on the vote for favorite classic set of 2017. I was lucky enough to visit GB this past summer with my daughter and visited the flagship Leicester store. Like a pilgrimage to my youth, I was astounded by the lineup to set my feet into the shop. Once inside, the muscles in my neck grew two-fold as I was awed by the displays. I managed to pick up some goodies there...about a case full...and was impressed with the classic creator building box #10703...still not available to us in North America. I have to say, it is by far my favorite classic set of seventeen. I ask my fellow members, what is your favorite?

    [MOC] Dragon tower

    When I got the green baseplate 16x32 I knew I need to build small diorama on it. From some time I wanted to build something in Dark Bluish Gray colour for testing purpose. I am going to build bigger castle in that colour. I also had returning idea of creating hanging bridge. And that's how this fast MOC evolved.

    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!

  22. Who else here played the older LEGO games? For example LEGO Island, Racers, Soccer Mania, etc. Well I recently just got Island 2 on the ps1 in the mail and Ive been replaying them and Ive had a blast of nostalgia. I wish LEGO would remake some of these or at least bring back some of the ideas presented in them.

    [MOC] Classic Spaceheadz

    I just finished doing my Classic Spaceheadz. More pictures to follow once yellow's and blue's air tanks have arrived.
  24. This Classic Space ship was built for my brothers' fleet by me. The windscreen is not available (yet), but it does come on a 2017 not-yet-released Star Wars set. I believe I am the first to use that cockpit for a CS build. This ship features six guns and five crew members, with seats for each inside the easily accessible interior. The front of the ship should feature one of this print. The model has two smaller boosters and one (quite large) engine made of 20 smaller ones. The front canopy and the middle roof lift away individually to reach into the crew areas. Each of the five crew members has a seat. Behind this leaded glass resides the nuclear fusion reactor, the heart of the ship. The five brave crew members, one of which should be wearing this uniform instead as the ship's commander. The LDD file is available here. As usual, comments, questions and complaints are always welcome! I don't know if this one will be built in real bricks, to tell you the truth, as my brother may or may not ever build it. (But if he doesn't I will someday!)
  25. This classic-styled UFO is just a fun little project I came up with while messing around with the new slopes that came out on the London Bus / VW Beetle. I have had it pointed out to me it looks somewhat similar to the car in some cartoon TV show I don't watch called 'Rick & Morty." I don't know for sure, but looking at pictures online, it seems like I could have been subliminally influenced by those video ads on Facebook I've scrolled past recently. The ship has two engines and an opening cockpit with seating for one figure at the controls. Meet Norma Alley, who goes about everyday the same way, for her whole life. Get up alone, got to work where no-one knows you, then she gets to a bar where her crush doesn't even know you exist, and finally go to bed in your tiny apartment with your cat that couldn't care less if you came home at all... only to start thew whole process over the next day. (Man, that was the most depressing and sad thing I've ever written, and was partially inspired by the Paul McCartney song "Another Day".) LDD file included here for the ship and it's pilot figure. Any thoughts, questions and complaints are welcome, though i don't know if I will build this one in real bricks. It is possible to do so, but as this is just a table-scrap, I probably will not built it.
