First, a close up of the man placing the flag on the moon, at this newly acquired area
A close up of an air speeder, as well as part of the rock formation.
The rover as well as an XT-6 (newer model of the original XT-5) droid
The communications outpost
A close up of the scientists checking for water, after the look of the bridges. One detects, another digs and another (no he’s not shooting) surveys the area
Another close up of the same scientists.
This is how I built up the rock wall
If these were actual sets, this is what they would be
First an impulse set, featuring a blue minifig and flag. Also various rocks, and a 6x4 plate=$5-$7
Next is a small speeder with a white minifig, as well as another red minifig with radio=$12-$15
This is a communications outpost, as well as a moon-rover. With a white and blue minifig=$17-$20
This is three sets, first is the three scientist minifigs (red, yellow and white) as well as some of the rocks=$20-25
The next is the rest of the grey rocks, used for mountains and the such like. It also comes with some (usually black, sometimes other colors) bricks for surport=$20-$30
The last is the large (48x48 studs) base plate=$15-$17
Please comment and rate, as I want to see what I can improve on.
P.S. Most of this will be with me (and a friend) at Melbourne's (Austrlia) own BrickVention!!! So that means you Ocean can see it in person!!!
I always admired cuteness of CS ... so peaceful, so innocent guys that really want to colonize every corner of space ... I realized that I havent done any civillian ship, so it is really inspirng me to do so ...
WOW! Thanks you guys for the awsome review! It makes me feel so good, knowing that I impressed AFOL's. Keep listening for updates, there will certianly be more Classic Space stuff from me in the future. thanks again!
I like it

I think you captured the theme well. In fact I'd say very well done. I may have had an edge on you being an AFOL who grew up with Classic Space and who probably has a larger selection of brick to work with. I really like what you did here and it took me back in time. You'll see a lot of the neo-classic space stuff around but its just not the same. You went studs up and built with the old school colors. All in all, well done! Thank you for the competition. ~dave
Marioman, I also gave my vote to your opponent, but that should not discourage you. You had a great build and presentation. I would have liked to see a bit more focus on either the landscape or the vehicles. Good show!
You did a very nice job here. The concept of "marketing" your sets was very clever. In the end, your build could not defeat Dave's, so he got my vote, but I thought long and hard about this one. I expected great things from him, but you surprised me. Keep it up.
