LEGO City Space Mini-Movies & More!

The recently released LEGO City Space sets have been well received by the LEGO fan community. We already talked about the theme in detail, but to recap, there are six regular LEGO City Space sets, ranging from small starter sets to large, all-inclusive space stations. There are also a couple of minifigure packs that can be used as add-ons with additional crew and accessories. You can find descriptions and reviews of all the sets here: LEGO City Space Exploration Sets Available!

The LEGO City Space sets are definitely fun, and because they are inspired by real space exploration by NASA, they are more realistic compared to fantasy and futuristic LEGO Space sets. This allows young and old LEGO fans to play out all the cool space exploration projects NASA has been doing as well as planning for the future. If you would like to learn more about the history of collaboration between LEGO and NASA, check out the following link with lost of info and great pictures: NASA.gov/Specials/NASA-LEGO

Still, because we are talking about the LEGO City theme, and not some of the more serious LEGO Creator and LEGO Ideas space sets targeting older builders, there is plenty of room for LEGO humor and silliness. Thus, LEGO has been releasing a series of mini-movies featuring the new sets and characters. In the episodes released so far, the LEGO City space shuttle is hurtling towards Earth while they loose contact with Mission Control. Some of their previous adventures are also included as flashbacks. The main characters are Captain Courageous, Lieutenant Brainy, and Sergeant Flaky. You can watch the already available episodes in the video-player below, and if LEGO is releasing more episodes, I will add them here as well. Enjoy!

These LEGO City astronauts are undoubtedly operating carelessly and dangerously, but that’s part of the fun of LEGO City sets. If you want to get any of spacecraft featured in the videos, you can find them at the LEGO City section of the Online LEGO Shop. And, if you are looking for more serious LEGO Space sets geared towards teen and adult builders, take a look at the #10266 LEGO Creator Expert NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander, and the #21309 LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V, both faithful representations of real spacecrafts. You can find them at the LEGO Ideas and LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.

    These astronauts are causing me anxiety! Anyway, it’s a good series and I like the sets, especially the two largest ones.

    I wasn’t aware of the NASA Lego site. I will take a look at it some more when I get home, but it looks interesting.

      Same here. I never saw that website before. I think my kids will love it.

    Just bring back classic space already! Sorry, that was my first reaction. This is not my favorite space series, but it is still very good. The only thing I really don’t like is that the white printing on the windshields doesn’t match the body of the ships like on the pictures. I saw one of the sets at on display at Target, and I was surprised how off the color was.

    Hmmm, this is a fairly good theme. I guess Nasa is pretty good at staying in the public eye, by the way.

    Here in Stockholm, I see Nasa logotypes on clothing on an almost weekly basis, I guess it is often a statement that signifies both “I am a proud geek” and “I believe in science”.

    And, hmm, a shame there wasn’t any similar astronaut in the upcoming CMF series instead of the fire fighter, which I, despite the hair and helmet combo, find an utterly boring character…

      We have NASA shirts and stuff here too. I noticed there has been a lot more stuff about space since Elon Musk’s projects. He sort of made space exciting again.

        Can’t agree more. Haven’t seen this much talk about Space since the 70s and 80s! NASA, Elon Musk, and the Virgin Galactic guy, Richard Branson. I do hope to see more space travel in my lifetime.

      They probably didn’t put an astronaut in the minifig series because they just came out with two astronaut minifig sets. I agree that they should have used a different character instead of the firefighter. I like her hair/helmet combo though. 🙂

    I love the station the most. And the color scheme is really good too. I hope there will be more parts of the mini-movies. It’s good entertainment and gives me some ideas on how to expand the scenes.
