The Luna Praedo, A Space Pirate Vessel

The Luna Praedo, A Space Pirate Vessel, Lego MOC

Ready the cannons! Unfurl the solar energy sails! Captain Ira is in command of the Luna Praedo, a Lego space pirate ship created by Alex Fojtik. Also known as the Moon Robber, this ship will attack and board any spaceships it can catch. This Lego MOC comes with a whole back story, which is one of the great things about Lego. It can really get your imagination going. This spaceship takes the term ship literally, and comes equipped with huge deck mounted cannons, 13 side mounted cannons, and about a million more guns mounted all over. The sleek design works well and it looks both futuristic and archaic at the same time. Almost like something from a cartoon or video game. The transparent green, black, and gray color design is a great call back to the Lego theme Blacktron.

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.

Lego Maersk Line Triple-E (10241) Container Ship Revealed!

Lego Maersk Line Triple-E 10241

Lego has recently announced a new entry in its Maersk Theme. The Lego Maersk Line Triple-E 10241 container ship is one of the largest ships that Lego has released. Measuring more than 2 feet long this ship is going to have a tough time fitting in a bath tub. Speaking of which, Lego is quick to point out that the Triple-E does not float. The Maersk ship does feature twin engines and propellers, viewing port into said engine, rudders, lifeboats, removable containers, movable crane, and one hidden coin. It also looks like this set will be featuring about a million stickers.

This is the first Maersk ship to be built using the new medium azure (blue). In the past Lego used an exclusive color, Maersk blue, which could only be found in Maersk themed sets. It would seem that Maersk blue has been retired, at least for the time being.

Lego Maersk Line Triple-E 10241 Detail

This massive container ship is made up of 1,518 pieces, which makes it a decent value at $149.99. One interesting detail is that Lego and Maersk are making a big deal out of the twin propeller engines, even building a viewing port into the side of the hull. The 10241 Lego Maersk Line Triple-E will be available in January 2014.
