I got the September-October 2015 LEGO Club Magazine a few days ago, and have been having lots of fun browsing through it. The variety of content is really good, and the pictures are excellent (something that is not always the case) – in fact, this is my favorite issue this year. I will talk about the content of the magazine in the next couple of weeks as I know not all of our readers get it, but one thing that caught my eye right away is an alternate build for the #31034 LEGO Creator Future Flyers set. 🙂
The #31034 LEGO Creator Future Flyers is a 3-in-1 set that includes instructions for three alternate models. The main model – featured on the front of the box – is a super cool flying mech with an orange, white, translucent-blue and black color-scheme, a large robo-head with a single piercing blue eye, and removable backpack with foldout wings and removable rocket boosters. The other two models are a futuristic jet with variable wings, and a high-tech sports car. All three models are a pleasure to build and fun to play with and this is a great set overall.
In the latest issue of the LEGO Club Magazine, there is a fourth alternate model for this set; a space toilet. Yeah, you read that right! We have discussed LEGO’s fascinations with toilets in the article: The LEGO Parrot that Eats and Poops. Recently released LEGO sets with toilets include the #70811 The LEGO Movie Flying Flusher, the #60073 LEGO City Service Truck, the #10218 LEGO Creator Pet Shop, #10246 LEGO Creator Detective’s Office, and also several of the LEGO Friends sets have bathrooms. And of course there is also the #31031 LEGO Rainforest Animals with the pooping parrot. And now we have a giant space toilet too! 🙄
Here is the description from the LEGO Club Magazine: Sure, the LEGO Creator Future Flyers mech can already be rebuilt into a jet and a sports car. But did you know that this “3-in-1” model has a top-secret FOURTH build? IT’S TRUE! With the help of exclusive LEGO Club building steps, now you can take your mech and turn it into a new and improved SPACE TOILET. And here is the description from the LEGO Club website: Did you wipe the seat? Did you remember to flush? Did you change the toilet roll when the last piece was gone? We hope you did, because here comes the Giant Space Toilet! Ensuring high standards of hygiene all across the galaxy, this flying robot and its huge claws is on patrol… Don’t forget you can always alter the design, change the color or substitute any element you’re missing from your LEGO collection.
Since I have the #31034 LEGO Creator Future Flyers set, I built this alternate model. It’s actually pretty funny. It doesn’t really look like a toilet at all – in fact it appears more menacing than comfortable, but I guess it is the future version of those high-tech Japanese toilets I always wanted to try. Anyhow, this particular toilet has buttons and gadgets and giant claws to hold toilet paper, and it can also fly. Whoever was the LEGO designer for this set obviously had a lot of fun. 😀
If you have the #31034 LEGO Creator Future Flyers set and would like to build the space toilet, you can download the instructions at LEGO.com/club and click on “Build” in the top menu. It will be the very first model listed there. If you don’t have the #31034 LEGO Creator Future Flyers set yet, I highly recommend it. It comes with 237 pieces, three alternate models (plus the top-secret fourth model you read about here), and lots of play-value. And it is only $24.99. You can get it under the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.
So what do you think? Do you have the LEGO Creator Future Flyers set already? How do you like it? And what do you think of this super-duper space toilet? Would you like to see LEGO designers share more alternate models to official LEGO sets? Feel free to share in the comment section below! 😉
