The LL-527 Falchion Starfighter

The LL-527 Falchion Starfighter, Lego MOC

This is the LL-526 Falchion Lego Starfighter, created by Mansur Soeleman. The starship comes with a short backstory. The prototype attack craft has implemented stolen Blacktron stealth tech. The unfinished style of this starfighter helps to make it look unique. The Lego MOC has an incredible amount of greebles, right up there with a Star Destroyer. The nose cannon works well and the connections with the Lego steering wheel look smooth. The cylinders are echoed throughout this design. From the nose to the engines. In the end the starfighter looks like the pilot is strapped into a giant jet engine, not sure if it is stealthy but it does look fast.

Space Drag Racing With The Lego DR4G-5T3R

Space Drag Racing With The Lego DR4G-5T3R

Space Drag Racing is all the rage throughout the universe. An extremely competitive and dangerous sport for the drivers, and spectators. The Neo Classic Space inspired dragster, known as the DR4G-5T3R, is the work of Rubblemaker. The blue spaceman pilot is the only guy brave enough to drive the fastest land vehicle in Space Drag Racing. This Lego MOC features a two wheel design, with a gigantic engine, and more exhaust pipes than a fuel refinery. The dragster is based on swivel-ball tech, meaning super fast all terrain turns. This is achieved with the gigantic rear wheel, which is actually a Lego Death Star piece from the Lego Star Wars Planet Sets. A tough piece to work with, as it doesn’t have a lot of studs and connection points. The blue, grey, and yellow design is a perfect call back to classic space, which makes you go faster. But, is it enough to win the drag race?

Classic Space Pirates Are Plundering The Moon

Lego Classic Space Pirates On The Moon

“ARRRR! The Space Pirates are here to plunder yer moon treasures.”

This Classic Space Pirates Lego MOC is a creation by captainsmog. Built as an entry into the MOC Wars 2020, category 23, Thar Be Pirates. The goal is to take any of the Lego themes and add pirates. The scene features an innocent Spaceman being hunted down by a small group of space pirates. The star of the build is the space ship. (Or is it a land space ship?) The six wheel vessel is manned by the four meanest pirates this side of Luna. Being lead into battle by a mean skeleton spaceman figurehead. The classic blue and yellow design is a perfect fit and makes everything feel old. Perfect for a pirate theme. What kind of treasure could they be hunting for? Maybe the are on a quest for the fabled moon cheese.

Draganpopart Lego Art Collage Blue Spaceman

Draganpopart has revealed a couple awesome Lego collage art pieces. The classic Lego spaceman is 20″ x 16″ on canvas. Using various mediums; such as watercolors, acrylics, and vintage book prints. There is also the iconic space console, which is painted on a 14″ canvas using the same methods and materials as the spaceman. The detail achieved on these art pieces is great and would look great hanging from any Lego fans wall.

The Lunar Exploration Geological Outpost – LEGO

Billy Burg Lego Space Lunar Exploration Geological Outpost 01
There is something timeless about the 1980’s Space themed Lego sets. Also known as Classic Space. The grey, blue, black, and yellow colors combine perfectly. This was a time when Lego space focused on exploration for its general theme. No wars here. The worst that could happen is the Minifigures would get into fights with megaphones.

Lego builder Billy Burg has taken the Classic Space theme and brought it up to current Lego standards. These MOCs are simple looking, but are carefully put together with popular SNOT techniques. No stray studs showing here. The Lunar Exploration Geological Outpost (LEGO) features the LL-1923 Spaceship, a Spacetruck, Speeder, Communications Satellite Dish, 2 Robot Drones, and a Robot Dog. All this equipment is operated by a team of 6 explorers. They are ready to find space gold on the moon.

“It’s essentially a recreation of the old classic space theme given a new twist, using modern building techniques, but keeping the ethos of the original theme: which to me is to fire up the imagination, have fun, play well, pretend you’re an astronaut and explore space! Very topical at the moment I feel.” — Billy Burg

The Crystal Voyager, A Lego Space Buggy

Karf Oohlu's Lego Space The Crystal Voyager

The Crystal Voyager is ready to cruise across the moon in style. This space buggy is the creation of Flickr user Karf Oohlu. They found a great use for the various Lego clear spheres. Even the most obscure, and seemingly useless Lego piece can be used creatively with a little imagination. The tiny T. Rex style hands are a nice touch too. Perfect for taking samples of moon rocks. The Crystal Voyager is a great example of retro futurism, just make sure your classic Lego spaceman has a lot of Tang, and freeze-dried ice cream for his journey. Hey, maybe he is listening to Journey too.

A Posable 6x Scale Classic Lego Spaceman Blue

crayonbricks's Lego Classic Spaceman Blue 6x Big

Have you ever thought that the Lego Minifigures are too small? Maybe they could be improved by making them 6 times larger? Well that is exactly what CrayonBricks did with their Classic Spaceman Blue build. This guy could easily be Benny’s big brother. The 6x scale Lego Man (can’t really call it a Minifigure) is fully posable, featuring all the movable joints as the smaller Minifig. This big guy even has the jetpack/air tanks on the back. What exactly are those intended to be anyway? I say jetpack. The only thing missing here is a broken helmet chin strap.

The Neo-Blacktron Alienator: A reboot of Lego set 6876

Jeremy Williams's Lego Blacktron Alienator

“You cannot hide, Federation!”

If one Lego theme could sum up the 1980’s it would be Blacktron. Jeremy Williams has created the Alienator, a Neo-Blacktron reboot of official Alienator (6876) from 1988. The iconic black and yellow color scheme, the laser gridded star field, and the clunky design is all perfectly represented. The first thing to be updated were the swinging skies which are now four hydraulic legs. One of the best features of this walker is the hidden Pulse Generator hidden in the central body.

The Lego Movie: Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP! (70816) Review at New Elementary

New Elementary's Lego Benny Spaceship Top View 70816 Review

Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP! (70816) might be the most anticipated release based on The Lego Movie. It certainly has an awesome name. This ship comes in at 940 pieces at a $99.99 price tag. It should start showing up in stores in June (2014) and if your lucky it may already be there (UPDATE: Now on Amazon!) . This retro styled spaceship is a perfect modern recreation of that 1980’s nostalgia. This set has a lot of huge expectations, and most of them have been met.

New Elementary's Lego Benny Spaceship Front View 70816 Review

New Elementary has received Benny’s Spaceship early, and has reviewed it with a focus on detail and parts. There are a lot of rare and updated versions of classic parts in this new set. The classic blue, grey and yellow color scheme has been preserved. The yellow trans pieces are especially nice, and while all of them have been updated from their 1980’s inspiration these updates have been improvements.

“It’s gorgeous and sleek and Spacers will feel like they’ve got several Christmases at once.”

New Elementary's Lego Benny Spaceship Side View 70816 Review

One thing that reviews of Benny’s Spaceship have in common is how surprising the size of the set is. This thing is huge. The final build comes in at 64 studs long, which is equal to 2 of the normal sized baseplates.

New Elementary's Lego Benny Spaceship Minifigures 70816 Review

The spaceship comes with 4 Minifigures, 1 Unikitty, and a few brick built robots. There is Robo Emmet, which is Emmets slick robot disguise. Wyldstyle in a spacesuit, including a cool blue hoodie piece. A Robo Pilot, with a Space Police color scheme. Unikitty is dressed up in a slick blue spacesuit and nicknamed Astrokitty. And, last but not least there is Benny.
