Space may look exciting, but it’s mostly a freezing expanse of pointless nothingness. Much like Alaska.
Unlike Alaska though, there are people in space concerned with researching renewable energy, both in real life and in LEGO’s spacey universe, and they’ve got themselves some mighty impressive equipment to help them do it.
This is the Ice Planet 2002 Mobile Research Laboratory built by Master MOCer and TLCB regular Andrea Lattanzio (aka Norton74), and it’s fitted not with guns, but with a range of old-timey LEGO research equipment.
Unfortunately for the Ice Planet scientists the thieving scumbags of Blacktron do have guns, and they’re more than happy to use them to deny scientific progress (sounds a lot like Alaska again…). However the Lego Community have recently taken it upon themselves to equip the Ice Planet researchers with a few weapons of their own, and thus hopefully Andrea’s brilliant Mobile Research Laboratory can continue its valuable work unimpeded.
