Neo-Classic SpaceMan
Hi Everyone. I don’t know about you but I am getting a bit bored with my superhero range, so now for something completely different. Well, not so different after all.
About this creation
Neo-Classic Spaceman – based on the original classic space minifigs but with a few updates. The original minifigs had air tanks on their backs, but this guy has a new fangled helmet with air tanks built in. I have given him a whizzy new jetpack inspired by Warhammer 40000 Space Marines. It uses 3mm rigid pipe inside the 2x2 round bricks to create the curve, the 1x1 round plates (trans yellow) force the curve to be even tighter.

I have always thought of the classic spacemen as explorers rather than marines, but this guy is a bit of both. His weapons and accessories are based on the originals so are quite simple in design. His jetpack is ideal for hopping around hostile new worlds collecting samples and evading enemies.


















Little and Large.


Anyway I hope you like him. I promise I will put my figures away for a bit and concentrate on different themes.

I can never tire from somebody trying to get to the extreme extent of an idea, or concept, it s key to the next level of technique, as for this one, it reminds me a little of the creator s fire fighting robot that lego sells with a light on the face, as I still love classic space, I d love you to change it to a battle support armor, or robot lol! next to a nice little outpost with a crater plate, lol! I still like it, but, I d prefer... lol!

I love it! You don't have to put these away, they're kind of your signature. Like the way you can recognize art comes from a particular artist.

Quoting Dave Kaleta Of course your spaceman is a welcome take on your continued variations, but the two-tone aspect of your landscaping is very clever. I also like the way the alien is peeking out. Great work. ~Dave
Thanks Dave. Believe it or not I don’t have a huge collection of pieces. Many of my pieces are from car sets, so I am limited in colours and textures. The two tone was forced due to lack of grey 1x something bricks but, I am really pleased with the result. Building with limited pieces can sometimes work out well :). Thank you so much for your comment – always very welcome :D

Quoting Gabor Horvath Hi! Looks good figure, but I'm too young to know and understand classic space :) And yes, it's a good idea to concentrate on other themes! For example you can build cars for your figures! :D :D :D
OK hint taken I will build a car ;).

Quoting M<0><0>DSWIM ! Very cool idea for a fig of this scale! Not too crazy about the jetpack, though...
Thanks Moody :D. I thought people would either love it or hate it, it is a bit quirky

M! How cool is this?!! Where to start, first off, the base is excellent, it gives the guy a ton of depth, secondly, like you said earlier, this back pack is killer! Advanced techniques and imagination prevail here. Thirdly, and my favorite, "Classic Space" the stuff dreams are made of! Really cool build Joe! Z

Very neat, Joe! I really like how realistic he looks. The background is cool too. If you ever decide to make more of these, you should make Batman and Catwoman or Bane from The Dark Knight Rises. Anyways, Great job!

Very nice M. That chest piece is cool, it gives the whole figure that old school feel. I really like the terrain too. The coolest thing is the jet pack. It's not your traditional booster out the bottom pack. Very original.

Quoting Joost Cumps Hi Joe, hope you are well. As quite as I am, so much things you invent these days! Funny build this is, and a good use for classic space Lego's! Suffering from severe mocblock, but allways eager to find some great mocs, I send you my kindest regards!
Great to hear from you Joost :D. Good to know you are OK :D. Good luck with your mocblock I really hope to see more builds from you. I am also struggling to start a big car build.

Thanks Z. Yeah the technique is a bit ‘out there’ but it works quite well. The first version used technic elastic bands?! But that looked a bit weird so I experimented further. I can’t wait for your next build. I have a sneaky feeling it is going to be AWESOME!

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera I just love this! I saw him the other day and he's awesome! I love the additions Joe, the idea worked I see :-) He'll be able to find some seriously cool stuff with that metal detecter. Brilliant! It's great what one piece of LEGO can can lead too ;-)
Yeah the 1x1 round plates really force the angle. Thanks for the piece buddy :) I can't wait to use it again in our top secret classic space build ;) Shhhh!

That is one of the coolest things I've seen. The bits of detailing on the planet surface are great, especially the use of he rocket skis. The figure itself is really well made; I too love the chest plate. Great classic rocket pack to boot.

This is wickedly badass! Last year I made two futuristic mobile suit Gundams using M-Tron and Blacktron II themes -- perhaps I'll make a similar large figure from Space Police or Futuron, and based off your model!
