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
