LEGO Classic Space Galaxy Explorers Geeky Jerseys Back in Stock Again

Geeky Jerseys has again brought back their popular LEGO Classic Space jersey for sale again for a limited time. The only differences from the previous releases is that these are not customizable and will only have name SPACEMAN on the back with the number 85 which corresponds to one of the bigger years in LEGO Space history. Also the price of the jersey has been raised to $109.

I literally just received my jersey from the last release and I will say that they are pretty high quality. One downside is that it took three months to receive it but that is because each jersey is handmade. They do sell out fairly quickly so if you want one, now is your chance because they don’t sell it all the time.

Again, not a sponsored post. I just think they’re cool because I’m a LEGO Space fan.

LEGO Classic Space Galaxy Explorers Geeky Jerseys Back in Stock

Almost five years ago, I reported on some cool apparel that LEGO Classic Space fans may enjoy and it has been so popular that it has been in and out of stock for a long time. Over on Geeky Jerseys, they have the Explorer jersey available again which features the Classic Space logo across the front and the Galaxy Explorer patch on the back. The arms also has some space patches on it as well.

The jersey goes for $99.00 which is around the same price that the mid-to-higher end hockey jerseys go for. You can customize the name on the back as well as whatever number you choose. Keep in mind the jersey are custom made and they are limited time so get it before it’s gone again.

This is not a paid sponsorship. I think it’s just cool.

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 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.

LEGO Space Police II Galactic Chief (6813) Review

LEGO Space Police II Galactic Chief (6813)

Recently, I found a couple of my brother’s old LEGO Space sets we played with before I went into my “Dark Ages.” I’ll be doing a short 3-part series of these small sets. Today we have the Space Police II Galactic Chief (6813). It was released in 1993 and sold for $2.99.

Minfigure

The minifigure is named Captain Magenta and he is the Galactic Chief of the Space Police. His torso is exclusive to the minifigure and has the Space Police logo printing. The arms are green as well as the legs. He also wears red epaulets to signify that he is the Chief. The head shows the Chief wearing a headset. His helmet is black with a green visor. His accessory is a white microphone.

Build

The build itself is pretty simple. At only 23 pieces, the set was one of the smallest LEGO Space Police sets that was released 20 years ago. The front has a 3×2 sloped brick and has the words Space Police printed on it. The green windshield doesn’t cover the sides of the cockpit. Speaking of the cockpit, there are no controls so I’m not sure how Capatin Magenta is piloting the ship. Towards the back are a couple of thrusters on each side of the ship.

Results

The Galactic Chief is a pretty cool nostalgic set. It also has some good swooshability. I remember flying it around as a kid and chasing other LEGO cars that I made. Although this was the only Space Police II set I have, … Continue
