In Space, No-One Can Hear You Gasp

Lego Sci-Fi Base

Being a car blog we’re regularly flummoxed by sci-fi builds, and even though today is no exception the whole TLCB office gasped in unison at this utterly incredible spacebase from TLCB debutant Marco den Besten. Based loosely on the designs from the Tiberian Sun video games, Marco’s enormous creation includes spacecraft, mechs, rovers, hangers, and a whole load of motorised movement. Part of a huge construction for the Legoworld Utrecht show there’s much more to see at Marco’s Flickr album. Click the link above to join the gasping.

Tower of Green

Lego Classic Space Tower

This is not a car. Not even close. But it is really cool and we like Classic Space, so here it is. Built by Flickr’s Kloou in collaboration with two other builders, this 1.2metre tall tower finally gives the humble Classic Spacemen a base of their very own.

Constructed using the baseplates from LEGO’s long-forgotten Soccer range, Kloou’s monument to classic space is an impressive feat of engineering featuring a variety of spacecraft and other vehicles, and is also packed with easter eggs.

Head over to Flickr via the link above to climb the tower, and see if you can spot Darth Vader and Luke’s famous scene, the three-eyed alien from Toy Story, and Batman amongst the classic spacemen.

Classic Micro Scale

Readers of a certain age (and this writer), will be whisked straight back to their childhoods by this brilliant Classic Space layout from Primoz Mlakar on Flickr. Promoz has captured in micro-scale the type of image that millions of children looked at in wonder during the early 1980s in catalogues such as this. Click the link in the text to view the individual ships and vehicles and enjoy the nostalgia.
