Inspired by Devid Vii's amazing Classic Space mecha I decided as a bit of fun to do a Neo-Classic variant of my CAIN unit.
On the Left is the complete CAIN with armour and 3 little classic spacemen (minus the decals as they don't appear in LDD). On the right the basic Classic Space CAIN unit (see notes below) and three minifig scale Classic Space craft and Spacemen.
Unfortunately I can't figure out a way to make use of the pilots when the CAIN is using the vehicles as armour. I may knock up some sort of base for them later. (ohh just had a fantastic idea, will post pics IF I like the results....*)
I wanted the CS vibe to this set, which for the most part I think I managed. No weapons because the Classic Space vehicles NEVER had them.
Only major changes to the CAIN unit are the shoulders (which are longer to add the yellow and black stripes) and the general colour palette is CS (which means several sections are actually swapped from coloured to grey and visa versa. But the frame is generally unchanged.
The vehicles are compatible with the previous CAIN units (obviously) but the scale is different.
* My idea, well really quite simple actually. The CAIN unit would have a repair bay, docking station which would unfold into a little moon base for the mini figs when the CAIN is not installed. Might take some doing as it would involve some trial and error on scale and joints but achievable I think.

Another great vehicle. I like how the front goes from 3-wide to 2-wide. The folding wheels are a neat bit of design too. I think that the sunglasses on the spacemen make them look like the bad guys from the Matrix, like when they take people over.
