M.O. Round 2 - "Chris Roach vs. Thoy Bradley" . Classic Space Chess Set . MOC Olympics Round 2 – Chris Roach VS. Thoy Bradley – Classic Space Chess Set Topic - Chess Set Link to 2011 MOC Olympics click here . Link to my honourable opponent, Thoy Bradley‘s Creation: click here . My Classic Space Chess Set My take on this topic was quite simple, a simple black and white chess set wouldn’t do, so I though what could best represent the strategic yet fun game of chess: good vs evil and man vs machine! So I pondered obvious themes such as Transformers, man vs food LOL! .... and then I thought good old classic space vs evil robots would make a great theme for this challenge. So back to my childhood I went to bring the strategy of chess and the fun of Classic Space Lego together for this MOC. I chose clean lines, playability, a compact design and general nostalgic fun with Lego over an overly complex build which may have distracted and detracted from the chosen theme. The chess board is mostly studless and uses only pieces that were available in the classic space era. Instead of accessing my complete brick stock (herein lies the challenge), I limited myself to classic space era bricks only! (This may help or hinder me, we'll let the Judges decide as I believe I raised my level of difficulty by limiting what parts I could use). You will notice some of the details are that of the common sets of that time. Like the black and yellow striped details on the wings / chess board, classic space insignia, booster rockets and arrow pieces etc. The board is a functioning classic space cruiser toy, complete with working cockpit for a driver, where classic Lego astronauts and evil robots can settle their differences aboard its back in zero G. You can see this project in more detail on my youtube channel: click here . The Playing Field (Chess Board): The Players (The Pieces): Kings: Lego White Astronaut with Classic Space Flag Vs. Blacktron Commander with Robot control console. Queens: Astronaut on Rocket Sled Vs. Sentient Robot Sidekick on Rocket Sled. Bishops: Rockets / Missiles. Knights: Laser Assault Towers. Rooks: Radar dish installations! Pawns: Classic Space Astronauts vs evil remote control robots. Judges, fellow MOCers: Enjoy!...and please excuse my poor photography skills!
