My Entry For The Classic Space Pocket Money Contest
Well, this was harder than I expected..
About this creation

This is my entry for the CS Pocket Money contest. As you can see, I don't own any CS Lego at all, so I had to improvise - I took the stickers off my Ferrari pit crew team, and swapped their faces and hands to create something that almost resembles a Classic Spaceman, and with the vehicles I used some pieces often used in the original CS sets. Having struggled with this build for a while, last night I decided to just get on with it, and see what happened.

The first alternative includes a little jet thing and a little drone, which has a cool claw.. By the way, the stand is not part of the set.











The claw can fold away when not in use ;)




The second alternative is made up of a little search vehicle and a little command centre. The command centre has an 'illegal collection' but in the days of Classic Space that was okay. At least I think so anyway!













The last alternative is similar to the first one (I hope that doesn't knock off too many points!), as it includes a jet (inspired by the chrome and yellow fighters off Star Wars) and a drone, which has somehow ended up looking a bit like scorpion..







My favourite part of the drone is the pincers at the front-
"Let me go!"




The full set consists of 80 pieces (it might be 79, I can't remember!)




I do realise that my entry is not exactly the best, but I didn't know how much longer I had left to complete it, so built this in a hurry late last night. At least I've finished it now though!

Thanks for viewing!

Quoting Stephan N just great. For me, very inspiring. With such small models, I'm doing me always a little difficult.
Thanks a lot! I never did get round to finishing my entry for the following contest, which I'd like to think would have been much improved. Glad you like it!

Quoting Parrington Levens Great effort here. This shows that even if you don't have an abundance of cs parts, you can still build something with cs flavour if you really want. Neat.
Thanks a lot! And congratulations on the win, you deserved it!

Quoting David Roberts A nicely built space scooter, complete with some storage for tools. I hope it has automatic fire extinguishers, as the main engine appears to be on fire! The remote controlled grab looks very useful for driving around the tarmac of a spacebase and grabbing things. 6 I like the alternative builds for this MOC, especially the flying machine in the second alternative. What is that thing in the first alternative? Does it have a function? Good CS enigmatic building skills. However, the alternatives are quite similar to the main build. It would have been good to have had more variety here. 6 The solid build quality in this MOC makes for some good swooshing and zooming fun. Two mini-figs, within the parts limit, with lots of tools, add to the play potential. Perhaps you could have added to the playability and used up the whole 100 part allowance? Finally thereís the claw. Great for grabbing rocks, radioactive things or just picking up the litter around the spaceport. 8 I think that youíve got the Cs feel spot on but havenít really pushed the style beyond the sets of the 70s and 80s. 6 Total score 26.
Thank you very much David! I'm very happy with that :) It's supposed to be a drone that can help out with exploration, perhaps I should have gone into more detail when mentioning it. Yeah maybe I should have, I was just relieved to have finished it, I was struggling with it for a while. Thanks for this great contest, I never would have built anything like this otherwise! Thanks again :)

Quoting David Alexander Smith Design: The mobile claw is a fun, and something Iíve not seen before in a CS build. Whilst not the most sophisticated build, it does tick the design brief boxes. 7.5 Piece Selection: Some original designs and some variety in the alternatives. They do reiterate some of the building methods from the original though. 7.5 Playability: The claw looks fun, and the ship swooshable. Solid simple play value. 7 CS Factor: Everything correct in CS aesthetics, unfortunately not really pushing the box. Solid work. 7
Thanks a lot David, I'm definitely pleased with that! Thanks for creating such a brilliant contest, I never would have built anything like this otherwise! It was a lot of fun to be involved in, I really enjoyed it. Thanks again!
