MICRONAUTS!
About this creation
The Micronauts were a series of toys that appeared in the late 70's and early 80's. The vehicle consisted of variously shaped units which could be combined in unique ways, according to the imagination of the child playing with them. For some reason my grandparents had some in their spare room cupboard when I was a kid; I'm not sure whose they were, I don't recall them being bought for my brother or I and they were too new for my dad to have played with them (Strangely, I always thought they were a lot older toy, from the 50's or early 60's for some reason). Anyway, they "may" have had an influence on my current retro Lego building so I thought I'd try to recreate some.


Disclaimer: Purists beware! I've painted the head and hair of the figures with a silver paint pen which I can remove with mineral turps later.

Micronauts Time Travellers:


This nasty fella is Acroyear, an enemy of the Micronauts...




Look out guys!



Actually, it would be REALLY fun to recreate lots and lots of the micronauts vehicle parts in Lego and combine them in different ways just like the original toy. Al I need is a sh*tload more Lego...

Cheers guys, stay well!

These are great... love the hair! LEGO certainly could make this color... metal blue would be cool too! :)

I'm planning a micronauts build (for some reason these guys are never remembered that fondly). These are great BTW.

I collected and played with Micronauts when I was a kid. They were some of my favorite toys - I'm totally diggin' these. Your Time Travelers are cool, max Retro factor, indeed! Really takes me back. - Huss Q.

I remember playing with these as a kid back in the late 70's and early 80's (I think, my memory's a bit fuzzy that far back. Whadda want, I'm getting old dagnabbit!). Anyway this brings back a whole load of old memories and some of them are even good ones!

i remember the micronauts! i had 2! they looked very futuristic, as a fig, they were a bit like the gi joes of the 80s! i never had more as they didnt make them soon after, i had mine near 1975! there used to be a giant one, made out of the whole team! when transformers came out, i immediately thought of the micronauts! i had a red and a yellow one, great work on this nostalgic build!

awesome job! I was just looking at old micronauts commericals on youtube on the weekend and said that would be cool in Lego. And behold my wishes were answered.

Those are very cool! Never had them myself....though my grandparents did have a closet full of wonders just like yours. I think they probably picked some things up at garage sales.

After Lego, my favorite toys were Miocronauts. Their action figs were 5" of super-articulated awesomeness. These are beautiful homages. Your MOC totally captures what made Micronauts so unique.

OMG! Geekgasm! I loved these toys (and the comic book series) as a kid. I remember there beig an all black bad guy toy that I played with all the time. His joints were magnetic and could be switched around. I'd love to see you build more of these guys!

I'm not sure if they were ever available here in germany, we used to play with 'Big Jim' action figures. Nevertheless, from what I googled, your micronauts look absolutely perfect.

Nice! I don't remember Micronauts - I may have been a bit too young - but they sure look fun. Nice shaping on the bodies, simple, but perfect.

Dang, and to hear my Grandpa tell it, the only toy he had was a string with a stick tied to it. Now we know their ways! Nice influence build.

Nice Parts Usage on the body, but the silver-sharpied bricks are awesome!
