When there's a riot at the moonbase, it's time to send in the special ops...
About this creation
I'm in Group 2, Bracket 2A.
Here's my entry for the 2009 MocOlympics. I was put in the classic space category against Imrav Korono (click on his name to see his entry), so I built this small "crowd control" tank. I have no classic space sets or minifigures, so this was a little difficult to design and build. But since classic space is made from pretty raw elements, I eventually ended up with something satisfying. Please review, and thanks for looking!
Front view. It's great width could also serve a a blockade, if many units are placed together.
Side view. Notice the classic yellow and black stripes, which are seen on many classic space cruisers.
Back view. That printed piece was acquired through a free bag of mostly vintage stuff (again, I have no classic space).
Other side. Looks a bit like a camper van :D The walls are either straight-up or a very steep slope, which keeps people form climbing onto it.
Front detail. The yellow parts are slit-windows for the tank driver, and the white stump is the gun.
The back reveals high-security door...
... That opens to let out the crew of three!
Inside you can see my mock-up classic spacemen. The white one is the driver, the red one is the gunner, and the black one is the communications officer.
Clockwise from upper-right: the driving controls, the arms cabinet, a big blaster, and the main cannon.
Here's a nice low-down angle.
Just a quick frame I made, showing the tank monitoring activity of a crowd.
I love how you made the most with a limited number of real classic space bricks. The shields mask the fact that they are not classic space torsos beautifully. Well done and very creative. I think creativity is the core of MOColympics.
My first thought was "This is terrible, he's gonna get killed by his opponent!" But then I realized that the theme was Classic Space, and this looks like it just stepped out of Lego's past! Good job on capturing the theme.
Im suprised this hasn't been noticed before me- this is a great little Apc! Everything about it is instantly recognizable as PCS, and the fact you could fit 3 minifigures in it is incredible! Great work! -Danny
