LEGO Space Logo Collectible Coin Sold Out

The LEGO Space Logo Collectible Coin in the Rewards Center was launched late Wednesday afternoon here in the US and it may be the fastest one to sell out from the four coins that have been released. Even at 1,150 VIP points, LEGO ran out of stock on it within a few hours.

Now that all four of the Classic themed coins have been released, fans are now trying to get the previous ones they may have missed. The Space one may be the hardest to get as “pre-orders” on the secondary market have already reached over $200 for it. I’m guessing it’ll drop to about $150 once people start to get their orders in and they lowball each other.

There’s still one coin left to collect next month which is the golden one that goes in the middle of the display case.

LEGO Space Micro-Scale Space Cruiser (11910) Review

Great LEGO Sets

Today I have another Throwback Thursday review, but again not in the traditional sense. I’ve received an advanced review copy of the upcoming Great LEGO Sets: A Visual History by DK that will be released in October. Included with the book is a LEGO Space Micro-Scale Space Cruiser (11910). If it looks familiar, that is because it is a mini version of one of the best LEGO Space sets of all-time, the Galaxy Explorer (497/924).

The set comes in comes separately in a box within the slipcover. The front of the box shows the Micro-Scale Space Cruiser with a rather large LEGO logo on the top left and the set number on the right. There’s also a window showing off some of the pieces of the set. The back of the box shows some action shots of the Space Cruiser.

Within the box, there is a polybag and a small instruction booklet included. The set is designed by Mel Caddick and it contains 102 pieces.

The build is very quick and easy to assemble and just like its larger counterpart, the back is able to open up by the hinges to reveal a 1×2 mini moon buggy.

Overall, the Micro-Scale Space Cruiser (11910) is a great little replica of the famous Galaxy Explorer. Again Great LEGO Sets: A Visual History will be available in October but you can pre-order it now on Amazon. I’ll have a review of the book itself after I have time to read through it.

LEGO Classic Spaceman Minifigure (5002812) Promo Review

Today starts the month of September and that means we finally get the LEGO Classic Spaceman Minifigure (5002812) promotion that the Europeans had a few months ago. In recent months, it appears that LEGO has been focusing more on classic Space sets like the Exo Suit (21109) and Benny’s Spaceship (70816) and this little promo set just adds to it. The set contains 19 pieces and is free with purchases of $99 or more.

Box

Unlike other LEGO promotions, the box for the Classic Space Minifigure is made of a matte-like packaging material with a stud design all around. On either side of the box, there is a classic LEGO Systems logo which has a cool nostalgic feel to it.

The box opens up by sliding out the tray from the right side which shows the contents of the set: an instruction booklet and sealed bag of pieces. The tray itself also has the Classic Space logo.

Instructions Booklet

The actual instructions in the booklet are just two pages to show how to put together the spaceman and the robot. The rest of the pages is a timeline from the last 38 years of LEGO Space sets as well as some of the Space minifigures. A majority of the Space-themed sets have been well represented on the timeline.

LEGO Blacktron II Grid Trekkor (6812) Review

LEGO Blacktron II Grid Trekkor (6812)

In our final set of the old school LEGO Space sets, we have the Blacktron Future Generation aka Blacktron II Grid Trekkor (6812). It contains 23 pieces and was originally released in 1991.

Minifigure

There is one minifigure in this little set and it is the Blacktron II Astronaut. His torso is a plain white one with the iconic green/black/white Blacktron logo right in the middle. The arms and hands are black. The legs are also solid white. The astronaut has the simple yellow minifigure head. He wears a black helmet with a trans-neon green visor. Finally we also has a large jet pack attached to him.

Build

The Grid Trekkor is a very nicely built vehicle given the number of pieces that are available. It rolls on four rubber black wheels. The Trekkor has a trans-neon green radar attached to the front. The vehicle is operated by a control panel in the cockpit area. There is a trans-neon green antenna that is horizonal on the left side of the Trekkor.

Results

We have come to the end of the review of the Grid Trekkor (6812) as well as our 3-part miniseries of the older LEGO Space sets. The Trekkor and the minifigure are both awesome. The only downside is that I didn’t get more of these sets back when I was a kid. Too bad LEGO doesn’t make sets like these anymore.

This Space miniseries was actually fun to do. Trying to find all of the old parts again from my bin was pretty fun … Continue

LEGO Ice Planet 2002 Ice Tunnelator (6814) Review

LEGO Ice Planet 2002 Ice Tunnelator (6814)

Continuing with our series of our review of the LEGO Space sets, we have the second part of the series, the Ice Planet 2002 Ice Tunnelator (6184). The set contains 25 pieces and retailed for $2.99 back in 1993.

Minifigure

The minifigure included in the set is called the Ice Planet Astronaut. His torso has some printing of what looks to be a breathing apparatus which goes back to the white air tank piece attached to his back. He has the standard minifigure face printing but with some white hair printing as well. The Astronaut wears a white helmet with a trans-orange visor with antenna. His accessories include a chainsaw and a pair of trans-orange skis.

Build

The Ice Tunnelator is a small vehicle with the chainsaw attached to the front. The seat is a 2×3 white bracket which is on a blue 2×6 plate. The skis are able to attach to the back of the seat. The Tunnelator rolls on some large white wheels.

Results

Overall, the Ice Tunnelator is a neat set. It’s very simple but it works. I really liked the blue/white/orange color scheme of the Ice Planet 2002 sets and I wished I picked up more sets when I was a kid.
