“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 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.
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.
Benny played a pivotal role in the Lego Movie, and after retiring in his spaceship (I would like to think) went to celebrate with this Classic Spaceman statue. This little Lego vignette is the creation of Vanjey_Lego. I had no idea that the classic spaceman helmet came in grey, and it turns out to be a really rare piece from 1982! Thats not the only rare piece on display here…

Ground Control to Major Tom is a great Lego Vignette. Jeff Moffatt built this as a tribute to everyone’s favorite musical astronaut. This MOC depicts Commander Chris Hadfield singing Space Oddity (by David Bowie) while on board the International Space Station. The original version is one of the best videos on YouTube.
