Febrovery 2017: A Generation 1 Classic Space Rover designed for maximum mobility.
About this creation
I’ve always thought that the original Rover from the 928 Galaxy Explorer set was cool, but far to small to be as cool as LL928 itself. So the task For Febrovery was just that: Build a Rover with maximum size and coolness but still small enough for LL928’s cargo bay. And to get the real look only bricks available in 1979 should be used.

This is the result.



The Pickup bed of the Rover works as a transport pallet which can be moved with a forklifter.


The transport pallet has just the right size for the cargo bay of my LL924M.


Cargo bay doors closed, ready for take-off.


And now it’s time to transport the Rover itself. The cargo bay of LL928 still has the original size. I’ve only replaced the 2×4 brick in the front of the cargo bay floor with a 1×4 brick and two 1×2 tiles.


Yes, the cargo bay doors really close around the Rover.


And another way to transport the Rover: A standard cargo box mounted underneath my LL926 Space Crane.


The cargo box used as a garage for the Transportable Base.


Twin tyres on all four wheels and a high ground clearance are a great combination for an All Terrain Rover.


Just like the 891/442 Space Scooter/Space Shuttle it has two steering wheels to be piloted by either of the two Astronauts.

So this is it, my G1 Lego Classic Space Transportable Rover for Febrovery 2017. I hope you like it :-))

Quoting Locutus 666 Ne ich meinte eher weitere Nutzlastaufbauten für den Rover an sich. Quasi im Unimog stil. Um ihn in den LL928 zu verladen wird die Nutzlast hinten natürlich abmontiert. :)
Das ist eine super Idee. Mal gucken, für wie viele Rover ich Teile habe. Wäre ja schade, wenn immer nur einer gleichzeitig rumfährt...

Quoting Locutus 666 Nachtrag: Jetzt kannst du ja noch weitere Cargo-Varianten für den Rover entwerfen. Dinge wie eine mobile Radarstation, Kranwagen, Abschlepper und dergleichen.
Gar nicht so leicht: Wie du sehen kannst, passt der Rover mit der Pritsche gerade so in den LL928. Und das war ja auch die Idee dahinter.

What a cool, and very authentic build. It's a great way to use all of the 928's cargo space!

Excellent! Die Kombination mit deinem Cargo Lifter ist hervorragend! Und das es in den LL928 passt ist super! Der Rover selbst ist sehr schön im klassischen Stil gehalten. Gefällt mir insgesamt sehr gut!
