  1. The Apollo 11 Saturn V rocket by LEGO Ideas users saabfan and whatsuptoday been confirmed, and is being released as 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V! Full details in this Ideas blog post. 1 meter tall (over 39 inches) (!!!) 1969 pieces (we see what you did there, LEGO! ) USD 119.99 / EURO 119.99 / GPB 109.99 (wow, amazingly inexpensive, all things considered) Available June 1st, 2017 Original Ideas submission image: Announcement video:
  2. Hello I want to share my first MOC in many, many years. After building the official Apollo V set I was inspired to start building again. My first idea was to accompany my Apollo V with my childhood favourite rocket, the moon rocket from Tintin’s “Destination Moon”. I searched and found a lot of MOC’s of this rocket, but all of the were either too big or in the wrong proportions to fit my needs, so I ended up designing my own MOC. So here I present “The Moon Rocket”. It’s a pure digital build this far. I hope you like it. About the model In 1950, when space travel and journeys to the moon where still science fiction, Belgian cartoonist Hergé (Georges Remi) published the serialised version of what would become the two album Tintin adventure “Destination Moon”. Hergé was known for his sense of detail and perfection and put huge amounts of research behind this album to make it as accurate as possible. The adventure tells the story of a maned mission to the moon, something that was yet to be achieved in the 50´s. The vehicle that transported Tintin, Snowy, Captain Haddock and professor Calculus to the moon was a bright red painted, cigar shaped rocket with three large fins and a white checkered pattern around the mid-section. This rocket has become famous for its elegant design and is now synonymous with Tintin. The design is instantly recognised by millions of people which has read and loved the Adventures of Tintin over the decades. This model is a tribute to that rocket. The model is designed at a scale of 1:110, to match the official Lego Apollo V rocket. But scale is tricky with an imaginary rocket. Even if Hergé included a detailed drawing in the albums and built several scale models during the work with the album to get the pictures as accurate as possible, there is no official record of how tall the rocket is. To get a plausible length, I started out with the drawing in the album and concluded that it was possible that the drawing was made at a 1:300 scale. In combination with information from the book "Spaceship Handbook" (Jack Hagerty and Jon C. Rogers) and measurements from the album art, I ended up with a total length of 66 meters, including the antenna. At 1:110 scale, this makes the rocket model 60 cm (23.62 inches) tall. The model is made up of 1.575 Lego bricks. A display model This model is meant to be a display model only. The different sections of the rocket are held together by very few Lego pieces. The model will most likely hold together when standing upright but will very likely break apart if tilted or held horizontally.
  3. Hello all,I've been so excited for the release of LEGO's Saturn V Rocket that I have been slowly designing and constructing the mobile launch tower and crawler to create a more complete display look! I will admit, throughout the process I came across other folks creations (Eiffleman, Valerie Roche and Emmanuel Urquieta) and borrowed some of their designs/ideas to improve and implement into my creation. It does not have the cool playability features as theirs do! IMG_20170709_130956846 by Anthony Foss, on FlickrThe crawler is built off the pictures sent into Lego Ideas by Eiffleman. I had to reinforce the crawler to support the weight of the tower. The crawler essentially collapsed under the pressure of the tower and rocket positioned on top the first go around :)The tower is a relatively easy build. Each of the levels is essentially the same. For the white piping running up the front side of the tower I used a flexible rubber hose, similar in diameter to the rigid pneumatic tubing LEGO uses (saved a little bit of money). Stability becomes and issue the higher you build. It works but not as sturdy as I would like. A solid base is a must. The catwalks are a lot of torque on the tower than it seems. I went through a few designs before I got one that doesn't sag.It was nice to see one of these in person instead of a LDD image. https://flic.kr/s/aHsm4uqqFD
  4. This building was originally the Brick City Depot Winter Village - Victorian House model, while the car is inspired by Carl Greatrix's Rolls Royce Phantom Mk II, remade to look like a MOON motor car from around the mid-1920's. I removed the original house model's snow-and-sloped-plate roof, added a back half with stairs to the upper story, plus a revamped color scheme from medium blue and white to reddish brown, green, and white. Their is even a new front porch for lazy Summer days. The model is of the swing open type, complete with locking Technic pin to keep the model closed. The rear of the model features the chimney flue. The inside of the model features most of my standard details, such as a stove (which is supposed to look like it's hooked into the chimney), couch, vintage phonograph, table with lamp, curio cabinet, and twin-size bed. I have even included a grandfather clock to complete the early 1920's look. This car was originally a Rolls Royce Phantom Mark-II that got transformed into a MOON Touring car. (no, the the jalopy from the Apollo Moon missions, but a vehicle built in St. Louis, Missouri by the Moon Motor Car company) once I realized how close they were to each other in style cues. I guess I did the usual car building process backwards: build the car, then find a real life counterpart, instead pf building the car off a specific type. The rear of the car features the spare tire and license plate. This vehicle can seat one driver mini-figure. The LDD file for both car and house is available here. Comments, Questions & Complaints are always welcome!
  5. Get ready to blast off into the unknown vastness of outer space! This model was inspired by set 3831, (Rocket Ride, from the 2008 Spongebob line) albeit with a pointier nose cone, and gray color scheme. The model now has a enlarged engine section with longer tail fins and four more engines, along with a crew of two humans and a robot helper. One of the human astronauts can even be seated in the fold-open cockpit. (The below story line is 100% fiction.) This ship is the forerunner for all of the other Lego space ships: in 1969, this crucial piece of history launched from LegoLand Space Port for a mission to the moon. This was very soon after the failed 1965 launch of 801-series Space Rocket, which killed the the brave crew of Kat Aclysm: female rocket science genius and designer of the experimental ship, and Abraham "Abe" Normal, the best test pilot in the academy. Their deaths at the Samsonite launch pad were not in vain though, as the newly founded LegoLand Aero-Space Authority (renamed Classic Space Command in 1978) rebuilt their reputation as the premier brick-built space agency by launching the "Innovator", also known as LL002 which in early August 1969 made history as the first mini figure - built object on the moon! This rocket and it's crew (Bill Fold, Penny Wise, and S1L-V3R the robot) made history with their two days on the moon's surface, providing the foundations for the Classic Space Moon-base series of missions. The model without the figures The model now has a enlarged engine section with longer tail fins and four more engines. The rocket features an opening section to get at the interior which now only consists of the cockpit. The model was too weak in real life when the whole thing opened up, so I was forced to solidify every section to keep it from falling apart. The trans-clear windscreen part should have this print. The crew of this fateful mission was commander Bill Fold and scientist Penny Wise, along with their robot helper S1L-V3R. (nicknamed Silver) The robot is inspired by the robot customer in the 2007 set number 4981 (another Spongebob set called The Chum Bucket), while the astronauts were inspired by the Sandy Cheeks mini-figure in set 3831. The mini-figures should feature this torso print. MISSION NOTES: Here is the inspirational set 3831, courtesy of Brickset... ...and here is the original real life version of the rocket. The LDD file for the updated rocket itself is here. As usual, comments, questions, complaints and suggestions are welcome! EDIT 6/24/17: LDD file and pictures updated for the larger and now multi-engine rocket.

    [LDD] Apollo Lunar Module

    Hi there, here is a creation made with LDD, the Apollo Lunar Module. I imported the creation in mecabrick and then exported it to blender to render it. The creation itself counts 825 bricks and, in my opinion, looks more realistic than the one made by TLC (Lego set 10029) : Rendering test by dorian glacet, sur Flickr

    Eagles from space: 1999 TV show

    Who doesn't love the Moonbase Alpha Universe borns during the TVShow aired from 1975 to 1977 called "SPACE: 1999" and produced by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson creators of other cult series like the Thunderbirds and UFO. The eagles are iconic spacecrafts from the serie which I always wanted to build in Lego. Since few time Lego production give me the opportunity to get some parts which fit perfectly with the design of these. Of course I made them take part of Lego.Ideas in order to make a real fleet, one day... You can support this project if you want. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/119421
  9. The Apollo Program is a key part of the history of space exploration. The most famous missions were the Apollo 11 (first manned moonlanding) and Apollo 13 (that inspired the movie starring by Tom Hanks). This LEGO project includes: Apollo Spacecraft Command and Service Module (Apollo CSM). The model can be separated into its command module and the service module. The Command module has a hatch (that can be opened) and fits 3 astronauts inside (included). The CSM comes with a stand that fits the spacecraft. Lunar Module. This is the spacecraft used for the moon landing. It can be separated in the ascent module (upper part) and descent module (lower part). The ascent module can be opened and fits two astronauts. Lunar Roving Vehicle.It was an electric-powered vehicle designed to operate in the low gravity of the Moon, and allowed the Apollo astronauts to extend the range of their surface extravehicular explorations. The LRV was populary known as the "moon buggy". Three LRVs were driven in the Moon: in the Apollo 15 mission during 1971, and Apollo 16 and Apollo 17 during 1972. This project is also posted at LEGO Ideas https://ideas.lego.com/projects/140420 You can find more HR pictures at my flickr album: https://flic.kr/s/aHskCBsRUD Kind regards Luis
  10. I made this Scarab SRV (Surface Recon Vehicle) from the video game Elite Dangerous: Horizons. It is built to Minifigure scale, and contains over 450 bricks. I hope you like it. Feedback is very welcome ofcourse. (Also I added it to ideas.lego too, if you fancy supporting it https://ideas.lego.com/projects/134382) Main Features Two Commander Minifigures - male and female. Movable side boosters - used for jumping over obstacles and ravines, and for self-righting if the vehicle gets stuck upside down after a tumble. Movable top mounted turret with twin-plasma-repeaters for mining minerals, for self-defence, and for data-link transmission. Headlights (x6), brakelights (x2) and reverse light (x1). Twin wavescanner probes at the front of the cockpit, for locating interesting objects. Two salvaged cargo cannisters - the generic blue/grey type. They often just contain tea, but hopefully these ones are full of gold! A spooky black "Unknown Artifact" - no-one knows why these mysterious alien objects started appearing near the "Merope" star system, or why they emit such creepy sounds ... So what is a Scarab SRV? It is a one-person buggy, designed for exploring remote rocky and icy worlds in high or low gravity. It can easily achieve speeds of over 85mph on flat terrain, and is great for doing skids, donuts and low-gravity-somersaults. It can carry two standard cargo units, and can scoop up minerals and resources from planet surfaces. In the game it looks like this, and features in this game trailer.
  11. Hello everybody: this is my Apollo 11, I hope you like it. CM, SM and LM can be separated. The CM fits 3 astronauts. 1196 pcs. You can find details of it at LEGO Ideas https://ideas.lego.com/projects/84718

    One small step for a minifigure

    Hi, at the Mad History Contest on ImperiumDerSteine.de the entries had to represent a historical scene with some little changes. So here is my MOC for the first round - I hope you like it :) Best Vaionaut PS: Sadly the sticker for the US flag exists only for one side of the flag. PPS: Wasn't shure where to post this (historic or scifi), but in my opinion it fits better here...

    (MOC) - Space Utility Vehicle Stand

    I got my Space Utility Vehicle and build a stand for it. I decided to do the moon because, well, the craters proved an interesting challenge. It took some creative thinking to get round craters perfect, but I think I solved it quite well. Overall, i think this turned out nice. But what do you think? If you like it, or not, be sure to tell me in the comments!
  14. Moon Squad Anti-Aircraft Ground Cannon This set comprises an Anti Aircraft Groud Cannon, working with blue plasma energie, located inside a small secured area. The secured area : The secured area is a squared space surrounded with a blue plasma fence, liberating a small plasma incapaciting discharge to everybody touching it. The area comprises also a check-point in the form of a closed small building, having on its roof, a space scooter landing plot. The secured area is equiped, on three corners, with a very effective targeting system, in the form of three small radar self-searching and targeting units. The targeting system is of course coupled with the ground cannon. The anti-aircraft ground cannon : It is a squared building, having a operation center at the bottom, an the actual cannon on the top. The operation center is piloted by two technicians. The cannon is fully horizontal rotating (360°C) and the two turrets can be leaned vertically over almost 25°C, independantly from each other. A ladder present next to the entrance door, permits an acces to the cannon level for the technicians if necessary. The vehicles : The set comprises a space scooter, which is a small flying transport unit for one single minifig. Further present in this set, a ground wheeled transport vehicle for the transport of isolation units in which a prisoner can be kept and locked in. The rear part of the vehicle can be folded down, to allow the exit of the isolation unit. The cockpit can be lifted, to introduce the pilot. The hood can also be lifted to see te plasma driven motor. The isolation unit can, of course, be opened, by lifting the front part. (see pictures) The Minifigs : This set comprise seven moon squad minifigs. There are two technicians (without weapons) and the Pilot of the wheeled transport vehicle. There are also four armed minifigs, in charge of the defense of the complex. All four units have a plasma shield. Two of them have a plasma pistol One has a plasma rifle And the last one has a plasma ray power phaser.
