You may remember that on one of The LEGO Movie posters (pictured below) there is a sweet little LEGO Classic Space style spaceship in the background. As we have discussed in a previous article (see: The LEGO Movie – Benny’s SPACESHIP!), several LEGO fans have tried to reverse-engineer the ship just by studying the image on the poster. 🙂
One recreation of the small LEGO spaceship that looks really close to the original was built by Peter Morris, and I shared a picture of it before in the same article mentioned above. Since then Peter has been getting requests for the building-steps of the ship, so he recently uploaded pictures that you can follow along with and build your own spaceship.
This little spaceship is an excellent representation of LEGO Classic Space, and a perfect companion to the #70816 LEGO Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP! set. If you would like to build your own, you can follow the steps at Peter’s flickr gallery here: LEGO Spaceship Building Steps
Peter notes that this is simply his interpretation of the spaceship based on the limited data available on the movie-poster. He is not sure how the actual model was put together (it might be worth asking Mark Stafford, as reportedly he was the original designer). Also, some colors of the model may vary from the original – this is especially true for the windshield, which is not available in trans-yellow… unfortunately. And if you don’t have it already, you can check out Benny’s Spaceship at the Online LEGO Shop.
So what do you think? Are you planning to build this small LEGO Classic Spaceship? Are you a LEGO Classic Space fan? Or did The LEGO Movie start or revive your interest in LEGO Classic Space? Would you like to have the theme come back with more sets than just Benny’s Spaceship and the LEGO Exo Suit set? Feel free to share in the comment section below! 😉
