Looking for a childhood guide that is not in the database

RedblockRedblock Member Posts: 3
Greetings from a new guy.

Just found this web site this morning and am pretty excited about it... although I couldn't find a favorite childhood guide! I just got back into my childhood legos with my 3 year old son and wanted to find the guide to my first big space lego set my dad built with me when I was between 3 and 5. So the date of the set probably would have been between 1980 and 1983. It was a large, grey space ship with clear green and blue windows and "lights." Though I was looking at it as a young child, I'm guessing it was about 14 inches long.

Here are two unique pieces from the set:

Any ideas of how I could find that guide would be very appreciated!

    I'm struggling to find any set that contains both of those pieces. Check this list to see if it is any of the space sets:

    I just found it... sorry! I must be confused because it has to be the Starfleet Voyager 6929-1, but the colors seem all wrong... The cockpit and nose cone are right though, so it must simply be that I was like like 4 years old when we built it. XP Now I'm wondering what other set I had... Can't figure out where the green piece came from...

    Thanks for your help!

    Edit: one other thing, I was thinking this web site would actually show the guide so I can rebuild this thing, but I'm not seeing that. Are there such web sites, or would that be a copy write violation?

    Glad you found it. That piece in trans green is only in 2 sets:

    Maybe you had #6901 too?

    Brickset has links to instructions that LEGO host, so everything recent, but not so much for old sets.

    For older sets peeron sometimes has scans. For the set you are after, they are here:

    Oh yeah! Now I can build it! Thanks!

    ...Oh my gosh! I didn't remember the mobile lab 6901at all, but now that I'm staring at it I'm getting vague memories of it. Wow, this is kind of trippy going down a memory lane like this.

    Thanks again!

    No problem, you've found a great website and you've also started down a fun and slippery slope! Welcome to Brickset, don't be a stranger :-)

    I love the first reactions of an AFOL waking up... :-)
    Reminds me of me two years ago, when finding out there are other adults getting excited over LEGO and lots of resources!
    A new child has born! :-)

    2 days later. No doubt your wallet is at least £200 / $200 lighter by now.

    So what set was it from. I have a minifigure torso and a space helmet to something related to those sets. I am sure many other parts as well but those two have been standing out for quite a while.

    The blue printed slope piece is unique to this set: #6890 Cosmic Cruiser. Not one of my favorites, but it is remembered as having a small ship inside a larger ship.

    Notice that the printed Space logo is much smaller on that piece than on this one (used in #497 , #487 , and #918 ... )

    #6890 does not have the trans-green piece (as atkinsar's link above will show you). #6929 actually has a trans-dark-blue version of 3939 instead of trans-green (or printed blue). Hope this helps!

    ^I should add that, if you need them, instruction scans of all the above-mentioned sets can be found at (follow the PICSL link or just search for the set number on that site).
