  1. This is a test mission for the work-in-progress Heroica 2.0, and is meant only for the six selected players to participate in. If you are curious about the game's development, have a suggestion for a rule change, or want to comment on the quest's progress, please visit the Heroica RPG 2.0 discussion thread. The events of this quest are, as of now, non-canon - any story content or lore seen may or may not be part of the final game. ------------- Untold ages ago, societies across the galaxy broke their terrestrial bonds, and took to the cosmos. Countless beings now wandered through space, seeking glory among the stars. Six such individuals were doing just that, united by a common employer, a common point of departure, and a common goal. Six agents of Heroica were on a ship from Heroica Station, en route to the planet Gnorra - in hopes of saving an egg of a critically endangered species. However, in a celestial sea dominated by speedy spacecraft and imposing dreadnoughts, the agents of Heroica found their current vessel to be a bit, ah... Humble. Humble was a good word for it. And so the (once bright emerald, but now more of a sandy green) Initium cruised through the depths of space, carrying the party of heroes-to-be towards their ultimate objective. It was a reliable enough vessel, fast enough to get to Gnorra in a reasonable time, but a bit sparse when it came to luxuries. The cramped bridge was a testament to that. Six chairs corresponded to the six people aboard, embarking on adventure. And those six individuals were: The Party: Igaz (Goliath) 300 Cycle, Male Undead Vitality: 7/7 Strength: 2 Skill: 2 Smarts: 1 Spirit: 1 Proficiencies: Athletics 1, Intimidation 1, Melee Weapons 2, Short Range Weapons 1 Credits: 10 Equipment: Standard Vibrolance (+1, Melee Kinetic Weapon), Standard Plate Armor (+1 Kinetic Armor) Inventory: Shield Booster Kleeck (KotZ) 35 cycle old, male Ornithun Vitality: 5/5 Strength: 1 Skill: 2 Smarts: 2 Spirit: 1 Proficiencies: Persuasion 2, Culture 1, Short Range Weapons 1, Insight 2, Deception 1 Credits: 60 Equipment: Standard Plasma Blaster (+1, Short Range Energy Weapon), Translator Cube Inventory: Ensonvilterayquis (Enson) (Lord Duvors) 60 cycle old, Male Quo’ri Vitality: 6/6 Strength: 2 Skill: 2 Smarts: 1 Spirit: 2 Proficiencies: Melee Weapons 2, Medicine 1, Religion 2 Credits: 10 Equipment: Standard Void Star Hammer (+1, Melee Elemental Weapon) Inventory: Nanite Filter, Plasma Potion Dunola (Kintobor) 125 cycle old, Female Dwarf Vitality: 5/5 Strength: 1 Skill: 1 Smarts: 1 Spirit: 3 Proficiencies: Arcana 3, Culture 1, Short Range Weapons 1, Engineering 1 Credits: 10 Equipment: Standard Flame Thrower (+1, Short Range Elemental Weapon), Holo-Scroll Inventory: Energy Cell Tester-Three (samurai-turtle) One Cycle Old, Genderless, War Bot {Robotic} Vitality: 6/6 Strength: 2 Skill: 1 Smarts: 2 Spirit: 1 Proficiencies: Technology 2, Long Range Weapons 2, Piloting 1, Perception 1, Engineering 1, Credits: 10 Equipment: Standard Arm Cannon (+1, Long Range Energy Weapon), Standard Metallic Exoskeleton (+1 Kinetic Armor) Inventory: Shield Booster Yelana Fennix (Classic_Spaceman) Unknown Age Human Female Vitality: 6/6 Strength: 2 Skill: 2 Smarts: 1 Spirit: 1 Proficiencies: Deception 2, Long Range Weapons 2, Technology 2 Credits: 10 Equipment: Dual-Mode Sniper Rifle E (+1, Long-Range Energy Weapon), Dual-Mode Sniper Rifle K (+1, Long-Range Kinetic Weapon) Inventory: Cloaking Generator, Hacking Chip ----- Truth be told, it wasn't all so bad - although their six seats were packed together like sardines, there was not that much need to linger on the bridge for too long. After all, one of Heroica's many trusty nav droids was at the helm, operating the trio of control panels at his mechanical fingertips with programmed precision. The lack of warning sirens, space turbulence, loud noises, and flashing lights was a testament to their current pilot's expertise. "Let's see... All systems green... Fuel deposits plentiful... Wings stable... Destination will be reached in two hours... Feel like I'm forgetting something... Landing gear! When the time comes, which one of these operates the landing gear..." A consummate professional, down to his circuits. He soon turns to face his passengers as the Initium chugs along. "Ah, never mind that. Welcome aboard, Agents of Heroica!" Mission Master Note: Hello and welcome to Mission Zero, everybody! The six of you ( @Kintobor, @samurai-turtle, @Classic_Spaceman, @Goliath, @KotZ, @Lord Duvors) have 24 - 36 hours to confirm participation. Settle in, get roleplaying, and get ready for the ride.
  2. Hi there, Having in mind for a long time to make a scene about Space Police I theme and more generally about space classic, I began by designing a new spaceship in the Space Police I sub-theme. This ship purpose is to haul prison cell between bases. It can carry 4 standardised prison cells. It has only two front lasers for self defense, but must be escorted by other starships for its defense. SP1 Cell Hauler by dorian glacet, sur Flickr Regarding the Moc itself, it has been influenced by other mocs seen here or on flickr. I started from an old moc of mine (see here). Side access are inspired by Coja's Star Citizen Aurora MOC. Side engines by Backward matt's work on SciFi design, and rear engine by Space_cat27 Mining ship. For now there's only one render made of this digital moc. I hope I'll be able to build it in real birck later and go ahead with the project I intend to do, that will contain this ship, two others which purpose is to escort the cell hauler, a scene around the landing pad, and maybe some monorail into it :)
  3. Hello Eurobricks Sci-Fi forum! This is my first MOC post on the site, and as such, I would like to post the MOC that won the "Best Medium Spacecraft" category at Brickfair VA 2019. Without further ado, I present the ME-408 Asterion starfighter, a multi-role space superiority and planetary/fleet defense strike craft. It is designed for rapid deployment either via capital ship ordinance launch tubes or planetary defense launch silos, and as such lacks traditional landing gear. Design-wise, this project began using leftover bits that were originally slated to upgrade one of my other starfighters but ended up going unused. I took a lot of inspiration, at least in combat role design, from the Saber of Halo: Reach and the Vipers of Battlestar Galactica; thus, I wished to design a starfighter that would be sortied more like a missile or torpedo rather than a traditional sci-fi strike craft. Also, I apologize for the less than perfect pictures; my camera abilities are a work in progress, as is setting up an area with proper lighting. Rest assured, I will endeavor to greatly improve my MOC photos on subsequent posts. A little fun fluff info from the work-in-progress sci-fi universe I've invented for all of my LEGO space creations: ME-408 Asterion -Pilot: Veronica Bianchi, call sign "Minerva" -Classification: Space Superiority/Defense Fighter -Manufacturer: Mécanique Du Elwinsen -Operator: Terran Federation Navy -Propulsion: 5 Sanderson Engineering custom fusion torch arrays with electro-magnetic thrust vectoring and acceleration, 2 Böhrs light gravimetric drive maneuvering units, maneuvering microthrusters -Powerplant: Böhrs IL-6 strike fighter H-3 fusion core -FTL: None -Primary Armament: 2 Hershel, Kiesel, and Rhône particle beam-lance cannons, 2 HKR turbo particle beam-lance cannons -Secondary Armament: 8 "Minotaur" General Purpose, High-Yield Missiles mounted in dorsal secondary engine pods -Defense: TFN Class-7 duranium hull-plating laced with kinetic energy capacitor circuitry, LizBeth Industries “Rollotor” regenerative EM deflector field generator -Detection & Communication: Böhrs "Vision" Mk. 4 sub-space sensor suite with basic weaponry targeting lasers and EM-spectrum optics array, basic sub-space radio -Landing Gear: Reinforced foot pads integrated with primary fusion torch thrust vectoring array Thank you for giving this creation a look! Any feedback would be welcome, especially with regard to better building design tips! I know one area in which I lack skill is in greebling, and most of my creations display this, as I tend to avoid even attempting to build/place any greebling.

    [MOC] M-Tron Technical Vehicle

    Another project in M-Tron theme. Main goals of this MOC were to build machine for M-Tron guys, vehicle which can ride of different kind of the terrain and can be adapted to lots of different things. Lights which are located in the front, middle and the end (only 'truck' version) of the vehicle, help to be more visible on the tough climate of alien planet. Here we can see two different usages of mainly the same base. One is adapted to be some kind of transporter, which can additionally pull a trailer. Connection between trailer and vehicle has two torsion points to provide better turn. What's more, these points can turn not only left and right, but up and down too. Regarding the trailer. Big wheels - remember we are on alien planet and we need to ride in the very different terrain. Second one is a crane. Basically differences of foundation are small. There are no place for trailer, but there are two stabilizers to provide safe work of crane operator. The very end of crane arm can be switched to something else. For example, now there is a hook, but I think magnet element will be nice for some kind of cargo. Maybe in the future, that two vehicles will be part of some bigger MOC.

  6. Hope you don't mind me posting this. I've just created a new set over on LEGO IDEAS based on Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Any support would be very much appreciated. Any feedback is also very much welcome! SUPPORT HERE ! Thank you in advance!
  7. I tried to create a list of MOCs that are based on real rockets, spacecrafts or probes (or at least designs of planned real rockets, spacecrafts or probes) with instructions, either free or for money. The list was growing and growing and now it is far greater than I expected: https://kaerodot.gitlab.io/lego-rocket-mocs/ Due to the nature of the universe, this list will never be complete and perfect, so please contact me with ideas for improvements and additions. If you are offended and you do not want your work to be included in the list, please contact me also. Tables can be sorted by clicking on the heading. Some statistics: there are instructions for: 97 different rocket and spacesihp MOCs, of this: 5 different MOCs of Spacex falcon 9; 3 Spacex falcon heavy; 6 saturn 1B; 3 Soyuz rockets; 3 V2; additional 52 different MOCs of spaceprobes; additional 26 launchpads, launch complexes, drone ships etc. If you want to build e.g. mercury rocket, you can just select by the pictures.

    Review: 7316 Excavation Searcher

    Hello again Eurobricks! It's time to continue reviewing rare Life on Mars series with Martian Excavation Searcher - a huge mech with two claws! Excavation Searcher Full Set by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Excavation Searcher is the second largest set in the series. Only the main set, Aero Tube Hangar, was larger. On the one hand, the Searcher may look rank-and-file due to typical colors (tan and brown). On the other hand, this mech is interestingly designed, and Aero Tube Hangar looks empty without a meteorite processing station, and that's why I view this set worthy to acquire. I got it on my Birthday, just like Alien Discovery, but it was my present to myself. In fact I've been waiting to buy it for a long time from my childhood, when I was reading LEGO catalogues and dreaming of Life on Mars sets. So, let's begin. Box The box is rather large and bears typical Martian background and a photo of the set. When the set has been stored in some warehouse for 18 years, it became pretty battered, but not destroyed: Excavation Searcher Box by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The set name and brick count are written again on the box. That means I got the American version again. The back side depicts how the parts of the Searcher can be separated and combined: Excavation Searcher Box Back by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr This modular structure is one of Life on Mars features and can be seen in many LoM sets. The sides of the box - photos of Martians, warnings and importers in the New World: Excavation Searcher Box Sides by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr There's a little surprise within the box - it has a cardboard pallet for parts: Excavation Searcher Box Cardboard Pan by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr It makes the box useful for storage, and now I put there elements from Life on Mars sets, such as small vehicles and aero tubes, while bigger parts such as mechs and the pump lie in the large Aero Tube Hangar box. Alas, such boxes don't exist now. Instruction and Booklets The set has three booklets: an instruction, a mini-catalogue and a postcard: Excavation Searcher Booklets by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The instruction is standard: here are the beginning and the end of the build: Excavation Searcher Instruction First and Last Pages by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr On the following pages the transformation of the Searcher into a smaller mech is shown: Excavation Searcher Instruction Transformation by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr I'll return to this function later. The back cover of the instruction depicts all boxed LoM sets as usual: Excavation Searcher Instruction Back Cover by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The postcard surprised me. It's made of cardboard, and it could be sent to Enfield, Connecticut to get a free LEGO catalogue: Excavation Searcher Club Postcard by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The back side has the same information written in French and a profile. Unfortunately, this service was available only for USA and Canada residents: Excavation Searcher Club Postcard Back by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr I didn't get the free catalogue because I live in neither of these countries, and it has been 18 years since this postcard was published. However, I got another booklet with the Searcher, and it was a very pleasant surprise: Excavation Searcher Mini-Catalogue by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr In theory, this mini-catalogue from early 2000s deserves its own review, because it's a paradise for nostalgic LEGO fans. And yes, I'll show all its pages here! The first pages - contents (so many old school logos!) and a LEGOLAND ad: Excavation Searcher Mini-Catalogue First Pages by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Studios - the Steven Spielberg Moviemaker Set with a real and hopelessly outdated camera, and smaller sets: Excavation Searcher Mini-Catalogue Studios by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Life on Mars - the Aero Tube Hangar with detailed work scheme and other sets: Excavation Searcher Mini-Catalogue Life on Mars by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Xalax racers (these aliens are so funny!) and Alpha Team (agents, neon, evil Ogel, cool spy stuff): Excavation Searcher Mini-Catalogue Xalax and Alpha Team by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Old Star Wars sets - somewhat clumsy, but cute, and Palpatine's shuttle is gorgeous! Then there are the first Star Wars UCS models and the 1999 Railway Express train (I have it): Excavation Searcher Mini-Catalogue Star Wars and Trains by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr LEGO Football/Soccer (it's my favorite series too), Arctic and legendary Adventurers - particularly Dino Island: Excavation Searcher Mini-Catalogue Football, Arctic and Adventurers by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Knights' Kingdom (the first one with King Leo and Cedric the Bull) and the very first BIONICLE sets - Toa Mata: Excavation Searcher Mini-Catalogue Knights' Kingdom and BIONICLE by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Technic (Battle Cars and Slammers), video games and a Canadian LEGO Club ad: Excavation Searcher Mini-Catalogue Technic, Software and Last Page by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The back cover has a US LEGO Club ad: Excavation Searcher Mini-Catalogue Back Cover by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Here the review of the papers is finished, and I'm ready to move to the next part - the Martians. Minifigures The set has three Martian minifigures with typical turquoise skin: Excavation Searcher Minifigures English by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Canopus and Pollux are unique to this set, and Vega appeared in Aero Tube Hangar (7317) and two promotional sets (7320 and 1195). All Red Planet dwellers are named after stars and constellations like the Blacks from Harry Potter, and these three Martians are no exception. Pollux wears a light grey suit and a gas mask. Judging by the dirt on his forehead, he is a worker. And apparently he shaves his head. It's weird, that there is no Martian named Castor, since Castor and Pollux are twin brothers in mythology and neighboring stars in Gemini constellation. Canopus wears a tan suit and some hi-tech mask. He has a gunsight instead of his right eye. Maybe it's a magnifying lens or an implant. In LEGO Racers 2 video game Canopus was a scientist. The tan and light grey suits look standard, but unique faces compensate this. Vega wears an orange suit. He is a scientist who specializes in excavation. He likes BLT sandwiches (did he discover them after humans arrived?) and dislikes surprises. Vega's head is dull since it lacks any features besides eyes. Considering that this Martian was included in 7317 too, this set should have contained some other Martian - Castor, for example. The Set The assembly contains three parts: the Excavation Searcher, the flyer and the bay: Excavation Searcher by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Let's start with the most important part - the mech. Excavation Searcher As the name implies, this vehicle is used for search and gathering of meteorites that provide the Martians with energy-rich biodium ore. The mech is large and moves on four legs. The front claw and the tail make it look like a scorpion, though the antennae make it resemble some insect like an ant: Excavation Searcher Mech by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The color scheme looks very standard compared with other Life on Mars sets which have many rare colors. Tan and brown were widespread in LEGO sets - for example, in Star Wars, so there's nothing particular in these colors. Fortunately, they are diluted a bit by small touches of orange. As with all LoM mechs, the legs of the Searcher don't bend in knees. However, due to the presence of four legs the walker can be posed in many ways without the risk of falling: Excavation Searcher Mech by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Excavation Searcher Mech Walking by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The only remaining restriction is the 2000s-era hinges that can be placed only in certain positions and bend harder with time. And this set has many of them. This mech can even do the splits! Excavation Searcher Does the Splits by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Rear view: Excavation Searcher Back by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr In front, there is a cockpit for a pilot. Above the typical LoM darkened windscreen, the antennae with red signals and the circular badge with unique claw symbol are located. The operating arms are attached to the left and right of the cockpit: Excavation Searcher Front Cockpit and Arms by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Technic panels and curvy sloped parts give the cockpit a nice shape. The windscreen can be removed to see the pilot: Excavation Searcher Cockpit Inside by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr As in all mechs, the Martian is holding the handles. The orange slope makes the model look complete - without it the claw and the orange dish would look worse. The pilotless cockpit: Excavation Searcher Cockpit Without Pilot by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The brown handles have no control panel on them, though there is some device on the left side of the pilot. And it looks like a Martian smartphone! The arms of the Searcher can be moved with hinges. The left arm ends with the claw which is designed to hold meteorites (they are included here and aren't in 7314): Excavation Searcher Claw Arm by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Above the claw there is a similar sign than above the cockpit. The claw itself contains two parts which are pulled together by a rubber band. This claw works harder than the one of Recon Mech RP, probably because of time. The right arm wields some device with an orange radar dish: Excavation Searcher Laser Arm by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr I think it's a laser for stone cutting to obtain biodium. Behind the cockpit the mech's body with four legs, meteorite container and tail is located: Excavation Searcher Middle and Back by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The grey top pin spoils the impression a bit, but it's required to attach the cockpit above. It should also be noted that leg prints slightly differ in color for some reason. The meteorite container occupies the entire middle part of the mech. A small flyer can be seen under it: Excavation Searcher Meteorite Container by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The container can carry up to 2 meteorites. Frames prevent the meteorites from accidental falling. Grey bridges between the hinges are made of flexible rubber, so the joints can be moved separately: Excavation Searcher Meteorite Container Flexible Parts by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The container without meteorites - the studs allow to attach the precious cargo: Excavation Searcher Meteorite Container Empty by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The tail claw can move down and take a meteorite from the ground: Excavation Searcher Grabs a Meteorite by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The Searcher holds the meteorite: Excavation Searcher Tail Claw by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Unfortunately, the tail contains the same hinges as arms and legs do, and this design restrains its movements. The claw can put the meteorite in the container: Excavation Searcher Puts a Meteorite by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Unfortunately, there is no way for the front claw to do the same work. The crane operator controls the tail: Excavation Searcher Tail Claw Pilot by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr His workplace looks very simple and has no seats - only the control panel on the rotating circle: Excavation Searcher Tail Control Panel by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Flyer The Searcher is equipped with a small scout flyer. This little plane is attached to the holes under the meteorite container using Technic axles: Excavation Searcher Flyer Storage by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr These axles with light grey dishes are some kind of engines or anti-gravity devices which allow the flyer to hover above Mars surface: Excavation Searcher Flyer by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The pilot controls the vehicle, firmly holding the computer panel. The flyer's nose is the same part as Searcher's legs. The pilot can stand on his flyer too, though this will likely worsen the aerodynamic properties: Excavation Searcher Flyer with Standing Pilot by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The console is attached to the flyer with a tan Trade Federation battle droid arm - the same part as Martian arms. Plane's bottom. Perhaps, these black circles are anti-gravity devices too: Excavation Searcher Flyer Bottom by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The flyer without its pilot - the control screen can be seen: Excavation Searcher Flyer Without Pilot by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr This small aircraft can be placed under Searcher's hull even with the pilot (though mech's steps and Martian "air" currents will shake him hard): Excavation Searcher Flyer Stored With Pilot by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Vega uses the flyer to locate meteorites, and Pollux with Canopus will gather them in the Excavation Searcher: Search for Meteorites by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Hangar Bay/Meteorite Processing Station The set contains a structure - a bay where the collected meteorites can be unloaded and processed: Excavation Searcher Hangar Bay by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Its roof is decorated with the same claw as the Excavation Searcher. It looks very similar to two other mech bays included in Aero Tube Hangar - sloped roofs, sand purple arches, docking axles and supports with red lights: Martian Hangar Bays by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr But there are differences too: Searcher's bay is shorter, and roof lights are placed a bit differently. It also has a rear section for meteorites. The Excavation Searcher can be docked to its bay with axles. To do this, all leg hinges should be placed at right angles: Excavation Searcher Connected by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The axles of the bay are connected to the holes in Searcher's hull: Excavation Searcher Bay Connection by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The tail claw can be turned, and the roof can be raised to unload the meteorites: Excavation Searcher Meteorite Arrives by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr A meteorite can slide to a container (it's a block part): Excavation Searcher Meteorite Station by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Here Vega can scan it to find biodium and even extract the ore using hi-tech equipment. And here are the uncovered meteorites! Biodium, the spaceborn valuable energy source for Martians, can be seen inside them: Excavation Searcher Meteorites by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The biodium crystals have different colors: red and blue. They both are fused to orange rock. Biodium meteorites were included only in 3 sets: in this one, in Aero Tube Hangar (one with blue crystal) and in Solar Explorer starship (one with green crystal). Unfortunately, this high-energy ore is represented only by transparent tubes, but there were no translucent crystals in 2001 (though there was CHROME!!!). The processing station has a computer panel: Excavation Searcher Meteorite Station Computer by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The slide for meteorites holds on hinges that don't take fixed positions (the rube is removed for illustrative purposes): Excavation Searcher Meteorite Slide by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The straightened slide: Excavation Searcher Meteorite Slide Straight by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Here turquoise grills can be seen - they are unique for this set in LoM, but were also used in Rock Raiders and Technic series. An aero tube connector from 7317 can be attached to the bay: Excavation Searcher Bay With Hangar Ports by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr It's done! The Aero Tube Hangar is now complete! All three exits now lead to mech bays! Aero Tube Hangar With Excavation Searcher Bay by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The only one shortcoming is that the connector between two tubes now floats in air, but the tubes can be turned such a way that it will stand on the ground. Transformations Now let's see the modular structure of this set. It can be disassembled into 7 parts (Lord Voldemort approves!): Excavation Searcher Disassembled by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr It's proposed to make a small mech from the cockpit and front legs, and another one - from the tail with the container: Excavation Searcher Two Parts by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr I even like the cockpit-based mech - it looks funny. However, the separated tail is weird and can easily fall. I would like to put the cockpit above the front legs - now we can get a centaur without annoyingly bulging pins: Excavation Searcher Centaur by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr In this configuration, the cockpit becomes mobile and can rotate up to 90 degrees. I like this variation even more than the defalut one. By combining the elements of this set and Recon Mech RP, you can try to assemble a very looooooong "mech train": Excavation Searcher and Recon Mech RP by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr However, the 7314 instruction proposes to connect the rear part with a long light-grey bricks, so this model becomes a fully-fledged alternate build. I didn't disassemble the set just to do that. By removing Searcher's cockpit and connecting the rear part with an extra Technic bridge, such construction can be achieved: Excavation Searcher and Recon Mech RP Fusion 2 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Unfortunately, the Recon Mech's cockpit leans down under its weight. The extra parts: 5 spare rubber bands, a black Technic bridge to connect parts from different sets and a red light (there were also Martian and droid arms, but I removed them before filming this review): Excavation Searcher Extra Parts by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Pros/Cons Pros: + Original design + Size + High mobility + Contains a part of Aero Tube Hangar + Interesting and unusual parts + Modular structure + No stickers + Usable box Cons: - Typical color scheme - Connecting hinges - Legs don't bend in knees - Leg and flyer nose prints have slightly different colors - A bulging top pin in the standard configuration - it can be easily eliminated by building a "centaur" - Hard to find Bonus (with Aero Tube Hangar) Once upon a time, in the Aero Tube Hangar... Excavation Searcher at Aero Tube Hangar by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr - The intelligence reports two meteorites in Tharsis mountains. Pollux, Canopus, Vega, go there in the Excavation Searcher and bring biodium ore. - Right away, General Riegel! Pneumo pump, destination point - Excavation Searcher bay! Pollux Ready by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The pneumatic pump started working, and Pollux's hypersled disappeared in a translucent tube of the Hangar. After that, Canopus prepared to his turn. - Pneumo pump, destination point - Excavation Searcher bay! Canopus Ready by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr After Canopus, Vega laid down in his hypersled.

    Review: 78777 Alien Discovery

    Hello again Eurobricks! I present you the review of a rare LEGO set from 2001 Life on Mars series - or even 3 sets in one box, to be precise: Alien Discovery by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr They are two promotional (Double Hover and Rover) and one "common" (Red Planet Cruiser) sets. Life on Mars is one of my favorite LEGO series. Its main idea is interesting even in our times - humans and Martians do not fight but live in peace and harmony. Besides, this series was very rich in rare colors and uncommon parts, and it can be viewed as the primogenitor of all LEGO walking mechs. This set (being "new" and sealed, of course) was a birthday present from my friend. It was a very pleasant surprise for me, as now I have got almost all Martian sets from the series. So, let's go! Or, as Tenth Doctor says, allons-y! Box The box looks unusual, as it has slots for lesser boxes with sets inside: Alien Discovery Box by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Such "3 in 1" packs were sold only in America. The depicted astronaut says that it was a set of special value. This minifigure, the silhouette of Mars and the red background create the atmosphere of distant space and scientific discoveries which was iconic for this series. The back side of the box has the set images and the LEGO Club advertisement: Alien Discovery Box Back by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The ad looks unusual for Europeans as it was targeted at American consumers. It should also be noted that the green background has the blueprints of a completely different Life on Mars set - Recon Mech RP. The big box without small ones looks like a photo frame: Alien Discovery Box Without Small Boxes by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Different sides of the big box: set images, a Club ad and warnings: Alien Discovery Box Sides by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Three little boxes viewed separately: Alien Discovery Set Boxes by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr They have the images of the sets on the red Mars background. Written names and pieces counts indicate that this is the American version. The back sides of the promo set boxes have combined Life on Mars posters, and the box of Red Planet Cruiser depicts its functionality: Alien Discovery Set Boxes Back Sides by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Different sides of the boxes: Alien Discovery Boxes Sides by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The Red Planet Cruiser pilot is named on the box (Altair), while the other minifigures are not. Instructions and Booklets The cover of Red Planet Cruiser instruction: Red Planet Cruiser Instruction by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr On the first pages, the construction begins: Red Planet Cruiser Instruction First Page by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The back cover has all basic sets from Life on Mars in boxes: Red Planet Cruiser Instruction Back Cover by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The instructions for smaller sets are folded sheets of paper: Double Hover and Rover Instructions by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Their back sides are absolutely identical: Double Hover and Rover Instructions Back Sides by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr In both promo sets, these small posters are included (I don't remember which poster corresponds to which set). One poster depicts three Martians (Altair, Canopus and Cassiopeia), and another one depicts more Martians and the Assistant: Life on Mars Posters by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr There is nothing on their back sides. Besides the posters, all sets have such advertisements (they are identical, and here both sides are shown): LEGO 2001 Ads by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The profiles to attain LEGO Club membership in North America (US and Canadian flags are depicted): LEGO Club Ads by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Minifigures Each set has one minifigure. Totally there are three figures: two Martians and one Earthling: Alien Discovery Minifigures English by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The name of the Double Hover Martian is unknown. He has the same face as Vega, but his body and legs are colored differently, which is atypical for the series. He is one of three nameless Martians included only in promo sets. This Martian can be found only in Double Hover. On the other hand, we know the name of Red Planet Cruiser pilot - Altair. He is a Martian child. He likes listening to weird music and flying at high speed. His name means "the flying eagle", very much like the name of Altair star. His eyes are larger and cuter than Vega's, and his face has nostrils and freckles. Altair is also the only Martian with hair - he has a very funny red forelock! This figure is unique for 7311. The Assistant is an unnamed crew member of the human starship called Solar Explorer. He wears a futuristic spacesuit and a helmet with a blue visor. His face with glasses and a microphone is standard for that years. It's amazing how his bare hands withstand Martian cold weather (-40 degrees Celsius!), or he wears yellow gloves. This Assistant figure was present in two promo sets. The version included in basic 7310 set has a chrome blue visor. For my entire life I thought that Altair's suit is yellow - it looked yellow in photos and comics from Samodelki magazine. This is not true since Altair's body and legs are lime, and this can be easily seen if you bring a human minifigure: Altair Is Not Yellow! by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The Assistant has no print on his back: Alien Discovery Minifigures Back by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr From his back he looks like some fantasy knight: Space Knight? by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr But from his front he doesn't: Assistant and Grand Marshal by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Sets Let's move to the main part of the review - namely to the sets. There are three of them - Double Hover, Rover and Red Planet Cruiser: Alien Discovery Sets by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Rover Rover by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Number 7309 (other versions: 7300, 1413). The Rover represents nothing special - just a small vehicle with an ore detector. Behind the pilot here are an antenna and two side holders, one of which is occupied by the locator. The Rover is controlled by an ordinary steering wheel: Rover by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The wheels are placed on spinning Technic pins: Rover Wheel Construction by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The Rover without pilot: Rover Without Pilot by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Double Hover Double Hover by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Number 7310 (other versions: 7301, 1414). The Double Hover is as small and simlple as the Rover, yet it looks more exotic, because it is a Martian invention. It's something like a hovering scooter or sleigh: Double Hover Back by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The pilot holds the handles, upon which the printed control panel is attached. The set has no stickers at all - the round part under which the engine is apparently located is printed too. The color scheme is the same as in Red Planet Cruiser (it will be shown later) - green, sand green and a bit of orange. The "ski" of Double Hover can be lifted. Apparently the pilot can use this to regulate the altitude: Double Hover Engine Lift by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr "Obey me, Earthlings!" Obey Me! by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Without the pilot, the Double Hover doesn't look so beautiful: Double Hover Without Pilot by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Red Planet Cruiser Red Planet Cruiser by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Number 7311. The Cruiser is the biggest set in this box and the only one that belongs to the common set line. It is the smallest of the "usual" Life on Mars Martian sets. It's hard to understand why this vehicle is called Cruiser - it doesn't look like one. It's a weird one-legged hybrid between a mech and a flyer: Red Planet Cruiser by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr It's hardly understandable how he moves. By jumping? Or is the leg needed only to push off the ground and later fly on jet engines? This leg is particularly flexible due to three joints (larger mechs have only two of them). The problem is that it's difficult to pose the Cruiser without falling. But it can crawl like a caterpillar, for instance: Red Planet Cruiser Caterpillar by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr "Forward, to the stars!" To The Stars! by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The leg can be straightened to turn this weird mech into a small flyer: Red Planet Cruiser Flying by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr In this mode, it flies with two wing-based jet engines. Probably there is the third engine inside the leg. The round piece with flame image is the Cuiser's symbol and isn't included in other sets, except for accessory pack. The cruiser's cockpit is open and has manipulators on its sides. Most likely they are sensors and scanners, but the orange dish may be a weapon: Red Planet Cruiser Cockpit by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The Cruiser from the bottom: Red Planet Cruiser Upside Down by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr This model has pleasant colors. Grey and sand green with small inclusions of green and orange look good. The cockpit without the pilot: Red Planet Cruiser Without Pilot by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr It can be seen that the control panel is attached to the similar part as Martian arms, but grey. The Cruiser contained several extra parts (extra droid and Martian arms mistakingly are not shown here but still were present): Red Planet Cruiser Extra Parts by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The Cruiser can be united with the Double Hover, and they look like one vehicle (this was Artlego's idea): Red Planet Cruiser With Double Hover by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Red Planet Cruiser, Double Hover and other Martian flyers: Martian Aircraft by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Rover, Cruiser and Double Hover among other Martian mechs (7314, 7316 and 7317): Martian Mechs (With Rover) by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr I need only Red Planet Protector (7313) for the full Martian collection. Pros/Cons Pros: + Special value, 3 sets in 1 box + Good color scheme + Rare minifigures + Mobility of Red Planet Cruiser and Double Hover + No stickers Cons: - Weird Red Planet Cruiser design - Simple Rover design - Hard to find Thank you for reading and watching!

    [MOC] The Mini-Beetle

    Hello, I had a desire to make a "classic spaceship". And having 75176 Resistance Transport Pod it looked like a good start to make a spaceship. Then getting 70821 Emmet & Benny's 'Build & Fix' Workshop! And using at least one of my 70841 Benny's Space Squad I have most of the spaceship. But then finding a extra 70660 Spinjitzu Jay for cheap I threw him in to the set. I am saying Jay stoled the spaceship from Benny because Benny was the original pilot. The next thing you are wondering why is it called the "Mini-Beetle" first it kinda looks like a bug, second the inside reminds me of a minivan, and I couldn't think of a better name. Now for the action shot. As you can see the ship has (two photon launchers on top of the ship with two ion cannons in the front of the ship. Plus, it has a single distortion drive (you can see the space "warp" in the back). With two sub light thrusters for the extra mobility. Ok, now for the rest of the pictures. (Sorry, for any poor picture quality I took the pictures on my cellphone.) http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=578780

    Hello everyone!

    My name is Max, a Swedish 29 year old who rediscovered my interest of Lego a year ago when my son was about to be born. He is currently developing his MOCs with Duplo while I expand my collection of space related Lego sets. I find it truly relaxing to sit down and tinker with Lego or spend some time trying to reverse-engineer some amazing creation I've stumbled upon. Therefore I hope I can fit in with this jolly group of Lego fans and perhaps soon share some of my mods or creations of my own with all of you. Best regards! Max
  15. The larger ship is owned by Classic Space Ambassador and vintage 1978 astronaut Jenny, who uses the ship to conduct meetings with just-discovered worlds to talk to them about membership in the Lego Space Congress. They don't have to join with the Classic Space forces, as they can represent themselves (in the League of Non-Aligned Worlds) or join another force such as the Roboforce Alliance, M-Tron Company, Futuron Generational Holdings, Neo Nexus Force, The UFO and Insectoid Leagues, among many others. At least two (if not more) of these advanced fighter craft accompany the Ambassador's ship on diplomatic missions to newly discovered worlds. The "Ambassador's fleet", (as it's known internally to Classic Space senior officers) also go to war-torn systems where the Classic Space forces can try mediating a peace settlement for the benefit of the galaxy as a whole. (sometimes it works, sometimes not so much...) This model was originally a @hachiroku model of the the Nubian Royal Star-ship from Star wars Episode I (The Phantom Menace), as seen here. I followed his instructions and gave it my own twist with bulkier engines, elongated fuselage and a blue color streak or three, along with bumblebee stripes for the official neo-Classic Space look. Speaking of engines, these "glow" trans-orange whereas the original model didn't have any afterglow color. I also added radar dish pieces to them, as it wouldn't be classic space without these parts, would it? Usually, Jenny travels with a flotilla of other ships representing a smorgasbord of interests such as those listed above from across the Milky Way. (and beyond!) to each new world, where they each have five Galactic-standard minutes to state there case for their league, and why the world in question should join them. The world can then vote to join a established group, not join any and remove itself from the forum completely in self-imposed seclusion, or join the League of Non-Aligned Worlds. (This league of last resort is a patchwork of rebel colonies, drifting moons, mining asteroids, and separate worlds that is sadly the dumping ground for "everyone else" in the Space Congressional system. It is so fractured that they don't even have a appointed leader, but several semi-leaders of different categories of their members. As no-one is above anyone else, it's pure chaos in that section of the bureaucracy!) The inside of the ship, with one part missing from under the glass dome at the rear (the stellar map of the Lego Galaxy) In front of the cockpit is a storage area for cargo or consumables and the loading ramp. The ship has two forward-facing laser blasters under the main wedge shaped-front end, and three landing legs. The cargo area lifts away, while the passenger area roof folds open 90 degrees or so. This ship seats three figures, too. To accompany the (former) Royal Naboo starship- turned Ambassadorial CS ship, I took set 75092, Naboo Starfighter from 2015 and turned it into an advanced Classic Space fighter, borrowing the cockpit from a X-wing in the process. The engines are, again, my own design, and so are the twin guns under the leading edge of the main wing. As usual, the Classic Space logo goes on 4 x 2 nose slope piece on all three ships. (Hopefully these will be built at some point in 2020, with these two new fighters replacing my Deep Space Fighters from 2015) Any thoughts?
  16. Hello everyone. It has been a while since my last review. Now that I have my hands on this colourful spacemen set, I gave a little bit of my time to make this review. This is a quick one, if you have any question, just ask in the comment area and I'll try my best to take a photo and answer your question. Enjoy! These are all the space guys I have in my stash now. Not all are included in this set. Introduction There are lots of colours of spacemen since the classic space. I think after getting this set, I only need red and black to complete the whole spacemen collection (correct me if I'm wrong). So what are you waiting for? This is really a worthy set to grab! Overview Name: 70841 Benny's Space SquadYear: 2018Pieces: 68Minifigures: 4 plus a droidPrice: RM49 / £12.99 The Box Very nice purplish blue starter pack sized box. Now you know the names of the spacemen at the back of the box. The content of the box. Two bags without number. The parts in the bags. All other spacemen got classic faces. Only Benny has two facial expressions. Benny's alternate surprised face. He is the only one faded throughout the years. Accessories. The builds are simple and easy spaceship and space cart. The droid feels like Star Wars. The slope is printed. Tony: Great. Now the Infinity Stones can speak. Summary review Playability: 5/10 Not really playable but the colours are great for photos! Design: 9/10 I love the colours! Price: 10/10 Very worthy space starter pack! Overall: 9/10 This is a good set for minifigures. I hope you enjoy reading my simple review and do express your comments below.

    [MOC] M-Tron Space Train

    Hi! This is my first MOC in space theme. I wanted to build something different in that area. What is your first thought when you are thinking about space? Probably spaceship or some kind of space headquarters somewhere on the foreign planet. But today I want to present you something little different - M-Tron train. There are 4 different modules in whole train. Please find below short description of these elements: Engine-driver cockpit - this is the place where main operator has everything what is needed to steer that machine. What is important there are always one of the beginning and the second of the end of the train. Cabine can be open from both sides. Power source - one of the most important element of the all train. If you want to ride, you need to have full batteries. Couple of outputs are directly calibrated with power inputs from engine-driver cockpit. This is a part of engine-driver cockpit, but it can be switched easily, because it has independece wheels only for that element. Engineers have some tools to make necessary maintenance. Passenger wagon - place for brave space pioneers and robots. Passengers can jump in from both sides. Freight wagon - place for other kind of stuff, which is necessary for take lots of different actions on foreign area. You can add or remove Passenger and Freight wagons, but two first modules are obligatory. Do you have an idea for additional kinds of wagons? Please let me know in comments!

    [MOC] M:Tron "Wasp" Scout Mech

    I was told by my peeps on the TTV Message boards that you guys over here would appreciate this more than they would, so, I present to you, lovely members of Eurobricks, the M:Tron "Wasp" Scout Mech! More pics in the Jammer. There will be more MOC's of this sort coming in the future. Comments and Crits are Always welcome!
  19. I got my space port recently. I think it's an amazing set. Knowing that the City division of Lego does listen to its older fanbase sometimes has put mh mind at ease. I usually nod my sets and for this one, I ended up removing the little roller coaster piece as I felt it unnecessary. I can actually make the astronauts walk to the shuttle.But I love the feature where you can stick your android inside the building and pretend the team is controlling it. Detail in a smaller package is an admirable thing. I also love how the rocket holders move when you pick the rocket up. Overall, this gets a 100% from me. Sidenote: I'm glad they made this a 7+ set. Smart move Lego
  20. This is a 1:8.3 scale Technic MOC car I am making powered by EV3. Things have been going well until I ran into some space issues with some Large Motors. I wanted them to be vertical, but they were too big, so I'm trying ways to get more space so the motors won't be very visible when I build the exterior. In the right picture, I positioned the motors at an angle to save space, however it may make the rear too long. The maximum room I have (according to blueprints) for the motors is 2.5 inches away from the rear wheels, so I need to save a lot of space or I have to expand the rear. All in all, I have to position the motors where they are not too high or not too far from the rear wheels. I'd thought I post this issue I have because I wonder if there is any other better way to do this. Thanks in advance for any thoughts or advice.
  21. The following creations were built to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the 1999 Lego Racers computer game. Pieces new and old have come together to form these newly revised versions of the 8 boss cars. Please enjoy! 1) Captain Redbeard As you can see, Captain Redbeard's new ride uses the microbuild of his ship from set #40290 as a base for this off-road beast of a racer. But it still retains the large exhausts and rear mounted pirate flag from his original car. The sails make this the tallest vehicle in the collection so far. .
  22. According to Wikipedia: 1.1 Early Space (1964–1973) 1.2 "Classic" Space (1978–1987) 1.3 Futuron (1987–1990) 1.4 Blacktron (1987–1988) 1.5 Space Police (1989) 1.6 M:Tron (1990–1991) 1.7 Blacktron Future Generation (1991–1992) 1.8 Space Police II (1992–1993) 1.9 Ice Planet 2002 (1993–1994) 1.10 Spyrius (1994–1995) 1.11 Unitron (1994–1995) 1.12 Exploriens (1996) 1.13 Roboforce (1997) 1.14 UFO (1997–1998) 1.15 Insectoids (1998–1999) 1.16 Life on Mars (2001) 1.17 Mars Mission (2007–2008) 1.18 Space Police III (2009–2010) 1.19 Alien Conquest (2011) 1.20 Galaxy Squad (2013) If my math is correct the biggest gap is in the beginning, with a 5 year break. Then there is one 2 year gap. And a few one year gaps, or overlap... Today, we are going on 5 years. Will the record be set for gaps? i.e. 5+, or will Lego go back to its one of its strengths. Has Star Wars ensured a longer gap? Note: I am a Star Wars fan. What say YOU?

    MOC called Space Training HQ

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this so apologies if i'm inputting incorrectly! This is my latest MOC called Space Training HQ which can be found on Lego Ideas. Thanks for all your help Eurobricks BrickCaddy
  24. This vessel, (called Project Upsilon) was Classic Space forces secret weapon against any potential uprisings of any alien, robot, or human race outside of the Galactic Space Congress. I say WAS because it's death-star level super laser was never used due to a planted Blacktron bomb sending the station and it's 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 blue astronaut Benny, who fell off the station before it reached full light speed while doing regular maintenance to the solar arrays. (Benny survived a day floating out of conciseness in orbit off Jupiter II before being found by retreating Congressional forces. He 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. He was, for a time, secretly considered with suspicion regarding the loss of the ship by rouge operatives of the Galactic Space Congress' black ops division.) Thirty-one years later in 2019, the station is found floating in the very far-off Delta quadrant of our galaxy, completely iced over. The crew are flash-frozen from that horrible day in 1988, and the main computer is barely running on emergency battery power. The clock on the computer is checked by Benny himself: over 200,000 years have gone by! (The ship went inside the black hole which deposited the ship in the very distant past via a time vortex.) The fusion reactors are restarted, and the barely-functional computer begins to wake up the two crew. Then it is discovered that a third frozen astronaut is on board in Benny's bunk, a pink one, who was not on board when the ship was blasted off towards the puncture in space / time. Who is she? Why is she there? The answers may lie inside the thawing mainframe core of the 1980's computer... Here is what I've been working on for a year or so on my computer, and more recently in real life. Overall this 101 studs long beast in real life is quite light, although it's not to easy to hold while taking a photo... I had to have another person help me with this picture as the 14 top and bottom stands that keep it level on the table don't make very good holding points for flight! The eight yellow triangular things are movable solar panels, while the cockpit seats two Classic Space mini-figures. The large super-laser emitter on the front is a Death Star-like cannon, used only in times of last resort against unfathomable enemies to the normally peaceful Classic Space fleet. (this would mean potential Blacktron, Robotron or Spyruis incursions, if it hadn't been sent into a Black Hole and time traveled back 200,000 years within minutes of first coming online in 1988.) The ship featured both a dual fusion reactor system and solar panels in eight moving segments as a backup in case of emergency as well as powering the super laser. This would prove vital in keeping trajectory equipment's backup batteries charged and cryogenic crew storage frozen solid for several hundred-thousand years.... you never know how long this station would have lasted otherwise on just fusion alone! The brand-new cockpit should seat two figures, ideally the yellow and white astronaut's from the Benny's Space Squad set. (70841) The solar panel's intense energy from even remotely nearby stars powers the super-laser. (In case you were wondering what those black-and-white pods were on the solar panel wing struts, they are small maneuvering rockets.) 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. 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) assumed dead. 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 base and this major space ship separate, as it's not meant to land on planets' surface's. Anyway, this is my first SHIP, and most likely my last one as well. EDIT: main post edited and pictures revised 9/03/19. Real life pictures added! Comments, questions, suggestions, complaints and such are always welcome.
