This press release was forwarded to me earlier today from Dr. Sinister, the (surprisingly cordial) evil overlord of Tabletown.
March 2009 sees the 30th anniversary of the original Classic Space sets from LEGO. Now, three decades on, it’s time for a celebration of spacey goodness atwww.neoclassicspace.com.
While I'm not too into the use of "fleshie" minifigs from the licensed lines or the modifying of LEGO parts to make them into different colors, they seem to be necessary evils in making newer parts work well with the classic space theme (or at least the theme as it would appear 30 years into the future). Although I have featured this theme before, it's been a while and I feel bad about not featuring it more often. Even though I haven't been able to blog all of them, I am really excited about most of the ships and buildings I've seen built in this theme so far. They're off to a great start with this 30 models in 30 days project - here's the first model in the series (built by Nnenn):
There's an RSS feed for http://www.neoclassicspace.com/ - so if you can afford a little more LEGO in your daily reading, you can subscribe for the spacey goodness.
