Some of us over at the Nostalgia Factory have been having fun speculating what the new 2009 Lego Space Police 3 line will look like. Early photos of a SP3 set has leaked onto the net (assuming it's authentic) which spoiled our fun but I ended up trying out some colour combinations anyway. It took along time as I kept repeating colours already used in other themes but here's one anyway: light bley with white and black features and trans blue/red. Very boring but that's all I could come up with! It'll be interesting to see what Crimso, Morbo and the others came up with.
I can see these patrolling the streets of a giant cyberpunk megalopolis, using it's advanced technology to track, apprehend, and / or eliminate criminals. I see it being abused in the wrong hands... Cool MOC. And those pictures of the leaked SP2k9 look cool, but the ships look kinda like F-Zero cars! (Not that that's a bad thing!)
Oh, they're not headlights! Well, for goodness sakes, man, cover them up!! ;) Some cheese would work, or just a tile. I like to use those 2x1 slopes that taper to a point on one side... They come gold in the 2008 castle sets.
Colors are "realistic" for a Police Ship. But what I really love is that there is something very "strong" in the shape, the wings... The fact there's no a lot of parts, is cool too: it could easily be a real set. Maybe more "serious" than as usual, but a really good one :D
Well, you may call it boring but I love the shape and coloring. Lovely SPIII speculation Ocean! I was planning on building what I had in mind for SPIII but got sidetracked... this gave me a jump start though!
JD, I think it will have a bad guy named Squidman to go with it. Anyways, I actually didn't build any speculative Space Police 3, but I'd like to see if anyone else came up with anything. You might want to link to our group so people can see our conversation about this.
