2 rows of 3 seats with no rows stepped up. Could've quite easily got more seats in.
Made some space on one of my shelves so it could join some of the other cars in my collection.
But I know what you mean about the Ice Planet sets - it was such a distinctive look, and they introduced a lot of cool parts around that time. I've got a lot of love for the 90s Space subthemes - Spyrius was awesome, and I really wish I'd made the effort to acquire more M-Tron...
I wanted to build some more Space, so I decided to pull out the smaller sets from each subtheme and line them up chronologically...
I know I also have Space Police 1 and 3, Blacktron 1, UFO, and Alien Conquest around somewhere, but I’m still missing anything Insectoid or Unitron...
Besides Classic Space, my favorites are Futuron, BT 2, and M-Tron, but really I’m a sucker for pretty much all of them...
The "boat" in the background (white base, with the antennae) is build by my 4-yo, and I converted one of my (got both the single version and the value pack #6200, with #6235, for my 6th BD) #6245 's to a Pirate Sentry.
During the week aforementioned 4-yo saw TPB taking shape (albeit on top of the cupboard ;)), and commented he also wanted a boat like that, so put this together in my lunchbreak today:
He is now building a tunnel/dock using Classic Castle wall-pieces.
Now let's see if I can find enough old 1x1 and 1x2 black tiles to do a skull on the sail...
Condition isn’t the best, and I vouched I’d never buy any used Lego after a small hairrelated incident, but still hurts a little...
Decided to help with completing via BL.
at least they are saving the 9V cargotrain ánd Metroliner for the boys.
It has definitely cemented its place as one of my favorite Space sub-themes!
Should have been in the carribean on a cruise at the moment
As a child large Lego sets were only received on birthdays and at christmas, as a child my brother and I used to pore over the catalogues trying to decide which sets to ask for. Invariably my brother used to pick the large Technic sets and as for me, I was always torn between the Classic Space, or Castle sets but always somehow went for Space! Pirates came out just as I was heading into my dark age and yet I did pick up a small set here and there but never one of the ships so to finally get one, all I can say is "thanks Lego!"
I have a much higher chance of contracting covid and dying from it in my day job than I ever would on a cruise given the numbers of cruises and the people on each BUT that said obviously I didnt plan this when we booked the holiday and no we didnt still want to go so happily took the refund
Hey I can spend it on lego after all
For the variety of play experiences it provides I would tend to agree ... maybe the coolest set of the ‘90s... #6990 and #6987 have it beat overall though in my opinion...
