ALTERNATE BUILD --
Space Tri-Propellered Craterplane!
The Classic Space astronaut sat in the cockpit, with the control hub.

The spare peices.
A very simple design. The wheels look very good for crunching across the moonís surface. -4- The shipís wheels look great and itís interesting to see the axe heads in there too. The Craterplane is a nice alternative, with clever use of the R2-D2 head as a control panel. Unfortunately you really needed to have provided another alternative to score highly in this section. -3- Drive along, spiking through lunar rubble and Venusian bogs on those spikey wheels. What does the sensor do on the back? A great opportunity for imaginative play, which it would have great to see more of. A solid build nonetheless. -6- I think that the brown wheels donít really fit the CS feel: itís a shame that they donít come in a another colour! It would have been nice to have seen a trans-yellow windscreen on the MOC too. Having said that, thereís lots of space-fun to be had from this simple MOC. -6-Total score-19-
Design: Quirky and fun, however except for the mini-fig there is not a lot of CS here. A hybrid genre I think, CS-steam punk-castle. Certainly worth investigating, but wonít Iím afraid score highly.
Piece Selection: We only get one alternative build, which has to impact on the score. The use of wheels as propellers is good lateral thinking.
Playability: There doesnít seem to be any special features in the build other than it could be fun to whoosh along the floor (if the wheels allow this).
CS Factor: So far from CS style it is hard to argue it is a development. It is an interesting style, and one you should build more in, Iím afraid it just isnít CS.
