SPACE MAN SPIFF'S SHIP!
Space. The final frontier. These are the missions of Space Man Spiff, and his continuing voyage: to kill hostile life forms, to destroy evil races of aliens, to "boldly" go where no civilized being has gone before!
About this creation

I have wanted to build the classic Calvin and Hobbes icon for years. I finally found the proper technique for the circular body. You are probably thinking that I did a bricklink order for the red window frames. Actually, I received a ton of them in a creator helicopter set. I did order the dome though.


Open cockpit. I made the backgrounds an eerie bluish black.


Includes landing gear! Please excuse my lame Spiff. I won't be offended because I spent very little time on him. I had a more accurate death-ray blaster, but I had to show off my new lego space guns!


ZZZZOOOOOOMMMM!


WEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

Very neat! I really like the shape of the spiff craft but it looks a bit blocky. Nice use of SNOT, though. 5/5 Great job!

I knew what this was as soon as I read the word Spiff. I love Calvin and Hobbs. I also love the roundness of this ship, great technique!

This is one of those simple yet visually effective designs, well done! I had a similar design idea except mine -if I ever get to it- will be a orbital family/personal space craft. You know, so you can go for a Sunday orbit instead of a Sunday drive! Nice work!

Hey Max you got on brick pop! http://brickpop.com/

Quoting Christopher Baldacci Finally got this up, huh? Great job! Those bricklink orders took a while, no? Where did you order from - Belguim? But the ship is awesome, same with the artistic photo and Calvin looks great even though you claim he is the worst part. The blaster rocks: what ALIEN CONQUEST set did you get for that? And the curvature of the UFO style craft looks a-w-e-s-o-m-e! 5 stars Max!
Actually, I ordered from North Carolina. I waited and waited... so I asked my mom if she had gotten any word on the order. She said she forgot to pay for it. Three days later... The blasters are from the alien conquest sets, but I got mine from bricklink.
Quoting Paul Vermeesch I might add though that I still think my cloth idea would work. I was browsing Bricklink today and ran across the large red cloth cape that came with the 1:1 scale Zurg, and I think that if you rolled it up and fitted it in the window frames, you'd come away with a smoother surface. My two cents.
I would love to try it. Unfortunately, it costs something (what doesn't?) and I am too lazy right now to make another order. I may try it sometime.
Quoting Matt Mason Just because you've got the best spiffcraft in the business does NOT mean you can go around starting interstellar conflicts with other species!!
Aww... That's the fun part though!
Quoting Mark E Yeah I love those spiff crafts. Have U seen mine yet? But yours is way better Sooooo Keep it up dude!
I did see yours. The day I started mine, I was telling Paul V. what pieces I was going to use, and he tells me that there is a spiff ship on the homepage. "OH NO" I thought. I saw it and thought, "Oh good, it is a decorative one." I really like yours. It is so small!

funny funny funny. 8) The ship is cool. But I don't like the fig.

Quoting Paul Vermeesch Actually, (@Max and Chris) while those blasters do come from Alien Conquest, that color only appeared with the "Space Villain" collectable minifigure. The Alien Conquest alien blasters are silver, and the human blasters look like binoculars. Also, (@Max's reply to my previous comment) I am considering a Bricklink order, and the cape runs around $1.25. Would you like me to purchase you one?
I also got a pearl gold gun. That is from the space alien. Go ahead and get the cape.

Ms. Woodworm should be waking me up anytime now... now to throw a gravel in-forced slushball at Suzy... thank you, this is really cool! From the bottom of my heart, all those sunday morning papers were not a waste of time... so, my only question is "Where's Hobbes?" ;)

Bravo! Well done Max! You've captured the genius of Waterson's work perfectly. Great use of pieces, and I agree with the consensus. You've got one of the best designs out there. I might add though that I still think my cloth idea would work. I was browsing Bricklink today and ran across the large red cloth cape that came with the 1:1 scale Zurg, and I think that if you rolled it up and fitted it in the window frames, you'd come away with a smoother surface. My two cents. Overall, some awesome brickwork here, and I don't think Spiff turned out all that bad after all.
