Finally! Classic Space complete!
Today is a landmark day in my LEGO experience: behold the last 3 Classic Space sets I needed to complete the collection: #6874
Moon Rover, #6770
Lunar Transporter Patroller, and #1558
Mobile Command Trailer, at last in my possession. As small and unassuming as these sets appear to be, they were not easy to get: two of them use the very rare trans-yellow 2x2 radar dish, one contains the highly sought-after white flexible hose, one has the expensive black minifigure with rocket jetpack, and one utilizes the same battery box that comes with a certain monorail set...there just aren't too many of these three sets around as they get parted out by the sellers more often than not. I've only "bricklinked" 5 or 6 sets ever, and two of them are in this picture. In 20 years of monitoring BL and BO, I've never seen the Moon Rover offered by a North American seller; this may have been a Europe-only set?
I'm very happy; Classic Space complete! I don't have all the duplicate numbers for the identical set (e.g. I only have #497
, I don't also have #928
), but I have at least one of each design Lego put out there from 1978-1998, Classic Space I through Insectoids.
I guess the next step would be to display them all; it would look something like this: https://www.horseshoebendranch.net/mattslego/events/bf07flyin/index.htm
. It's safe to say I don't have the room for this in my house, so I'll have to be content with setting up just a few at a time. But if Brickworld Chicago ever starts up again, I would love to duplicate the Classic Space Fly-In at that convention...if anyone else would like to join in let's talk!
Anyway, thanks for letting me celebrate a little bit today. Feel free to share your collection victories, too...
