MocOlympics Round 1: Dax Olesa vs. Imrav Korono
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.

going to have to agree with Steef. Good adaptability here. You have my vote for the sweep!

Quoting Steef de Prouw The shields mask the fact that they are not classic space torsos beautifully.
I never intended that, but when I read your comment, I looked back, and I'm like, "Hey, this guy's right!" And thanks for the comment! It means a lot :)

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.

You know...I tried to make something much like this a few years ago, but it was a cover car-type-thing, and it was Star Wars. Nice riot shields, and awesome tank-thingy.

Great job for your limit on parts availability. Totally captured the feel of CS. You've got my vote as well. Step on up to round two!

For a moment it reminded me of the death probe in the six million dollar man tv show.

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.

Very innovative approach to Classic Space! I liked the level of detail. Very consistent with the 1979-80 designs.

Yay for classic space! Even though you don't have any official sets, you did a good job recreating the look from the elements you had. I especially like the minifigs ^_^

Very nice, simplistic model. I don't even know how you managed to fit three minifigures in there. Hope you win! Good day

Cute model, well done on using new pieces in a classic space way. Nice. If you ever want to build old style wheels, check out my 'Re-inventing the wheel MOC. Cheers.

Quoting Danny Johnson Im suprised this hasn't been noticed before me
I posted it about 10 minutes ago... It's 10:30 here. I guess I mean to say I'm not surprised :) Thanks for the comment.

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
