Sci-Friday Silliness

Lego Febrovery 2019

Long-standing readers of this crummy little website will know that we know the square root of F-all about sci-fi. But good news! It’s Febrovery, when silliness, nonsense and whimsy prevail, and even the proper blogs can’t pretend to know what’s going on. What’s that… they do? Oh well, rest assured that there’ll be no such information here…

We’ve got three Febrovery Rovers to showcase today, and we know nothing about any of them beyond what the builders have told us, so without further ado, above is a Syrsan third-gereration drilling rover. No first or second generation drilling rovers here! Primarily used for low to medium depth surface drilling, the Stenhård geology team pictured above are exploring the terrain before deciding where to take samples as part of their mission. Andreas Lenander is the man in the know and you can find out more about third-generation Syrsan drilling technology by clicking here!

Today’s second Febrovery entry comes from Flickr’s Frost, who has built a Vespid Rover of the Venusian Fly People. Commonly seen in the Venusian agricultural sector, the Vespid’s great visibility, soft balloon tyres and powerful turbine drive perfectly equip it for pollinating duties across the Venusian homeworld. If you fancy one for the flowers in your own garden head to Frost’s photostream via the link above to find out more!

Our third and final Febrovery creation is one you’ll all be familiar with. That’s right, it’s a Pinktron P6R, built to conquer harsh environments and widely used by Pinktron operatives in rescuing cute little animals on all sorts of inhospitable planets. We’re not sure that matters to Spaceman Lenny, who just needs a new rover to get to work after the plasma-drive failed on his old 8-8-6, but that’s the schtick that Honest John the Rover Salesman is going with. Flickr’s Frost is again the builder with full deets; click the link above to take a tour of Honest John’s Rover lot!
