The designation LL929 was one of several that was strangely unused (or perhaps for used on a top secret test vehicle) during the time of 'classic' space exploration, almost thirty years later, after the fractioning of human space into the colonies we know today, the government of Earth commissioned this one of a kind custom vessel to make a very special delivery.
A statue honouring those brave early explorers.
Unfortunately the delivery was ambushed by an unidentified criminal organization. Spyrius, The Insectoid Hive and the remnants of Blacktron all denied involvement. The volunteer Space Police pilot, Lt. Pedersen, survived however and has vowed to track down the thieves and return the statue.
First thanks to my boss for permission to use the window and the statue (though once I'd built it how was he going to say no?), I think this is the first picture of the statue (that's not a sticker) to appear on line.
It was built for the culmination of the March 2009 month of celebration of 30 years since LEGO launched the Space theme!
OMG! Awesome. The overall design is breathtaking! A brilliant tribute to my very first space lego set received in... 1980 (I was 7!). I still have the instruction -little crappy though- and I keep it like a treasure.
I re-built the LL929 too with up-grades but I'm a little "padah-wan" compares to what you've done.
Nice! The new parts threw me off too, until I read the end of the description. The additional canopy underneath though-- it looks good, but is there any other reason for it's existence? The chair blocks the view below, so it wouldn't be too practical... oh well, I'm nitpicking. A great MOC, very Classic Space-y!
YES! The Starfleet Voyager (http://peeron.com/inv/sets/6929-1) was one of my first Space Lego sets, definitely my first good-sized ship. I built and dismantled it so many times, I can still remember the thrill of pride one day when I attempted to rebuild it entirely from memory and succeeded! Ah, to be six again... an excellent tribute, sir. This made my day.
