When themes collide: LEGO Space & Castle

I found this sweet LEGO spaceship by a LEGO fan who goes by the name Paddy BrickSplitter. It has a bit of a LEGO Star Wars X-wing vibe with the shaping, mixed with the LEGO Galaxy Squad Bug Obliterator white/orange/trans-blue color-scheme. But that’s not all! There is a story here too! This shapely little ship has been borrowed by a couple of alien kids who are taking it on a ride to play some pranks on Earthlings: “Hey Grong, do you wanna fly by Earth? It really freaks out the dumb locals.” “Okay, Vobus, but my mom says we gotta have the ship back before 6.” 🙂

But pranks sometimes backfire, as you can see in the wonderful diorama below with the same spaceship. The alien kids ended up crashing their mommy’s ship into a medieval castle tower, right in the middle of a fight between the Lion Knights and the Dragon Knights. I wonder what happened next… whatever it is, alien mom is not going to be pleased for sure… 🙄

There is so much goodness in this LEGO creation! First of all, you rarely see a LEGO theme mash-up like this, mixing up different themes from different time periods. In addition, both the spaceship and the tower are amazing builds with some clever details. You can also check out some of Paddy BrickSplitter’s other creations at his flickr gallery.

What do you think? How do you like the spaceship? And the tower? And the whole mix-up of time periods? Did you ever think about building something like this? Feel free to share in the comment section below! 😉

“Hey Grong, you wanna fly by Earth? it really freaks out the dumb locals.”

Had me laughing.

But this creation is quite creative! I would have never thought of mixing themes…well, at least not like this! Also, never saw ice cream used as smoke. I feel sorry for the guy who just happened to be under that rocket when it fell off the ship. 🙂

Yeah, I really like it too. The ice-cream technique has been around for a while. It connects really well and quite flexible. I keep some ice-cream around just for this purpose. Mixing themes would actually be a fun idea for a contest. 🙂

I would pay any amount of money to any extend and go anywhere to buy this if it was a set. If this was a Lego set, my wallet would be dead before I could even buy it, really cool.

Muguay, there is nothing particularly interesting next month. You get a free small space set with orders over $35. That’s about it. I will write up an article and publish it on the first of the month, but yeah, as far as special deals, that’s it. No double VIP points or anything like that. So you could get your Ferris Wheel this month and get the Winter Soldier minifigs, or wait until next month and get the small space set.

Dawn, you can find the LEGO ice-cream pieces here: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=6254. Currently LEGO doesn’t carry any Castle sets, but you can get some older ones on BrickLink: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogList.asp?catType=S&catString=9
