Building the Exo-Suit

Posted: 10 days ago

On Friday 1st August 2014 the LEGO Ideas set #21109: Exo-Suit by Peter Reid (reimagined by LEGO Designer Mark Stafford) went on general release in LEGO stores and online. I managed to snag a couple before they sold out (looking at various… (continue »)

This episode uses Classic Space set 920, Rocket Launch Pad. Acquired for me by my parents in the 1980s - it was second hand at a time when that meant "a few pounds to get rid of the kids' old toys".

Yes, it's filthy. It spent a whole summer outside in 1996. It's now been cleaned.

The idea for this episode came about when the rocket part of the set kept braking off whenever it was moved. I've since stuck a 12 stud technic axle down its centre to stop that happening.

In retrospect, I should have used a sound effect to indicate that the vehicle has hit the rocket launch pad.

My goodness, my "mad photo skillz" are non-existent!

    Is this an extra strip, Louise?

    BTW, why does this comment input box keep directing me to random strips? Randomly, when I press a key, I keep getting redirected to this strip:

    http://www.tranquilitybasecomic.co.uk/0002

    And I have no idea why, but it makes this comment box very hard to use!

    I'm using Firefox FWIW.

    @BrickVoid - oops, it's not the comment form itself, it's the "keyboard navigation" conflicting with the text area. I added the ability to navigate back and forward through the archive by keyboard - I've disabled it again now. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    Oh and no, it's not an extra strip, it's the very first strip!

    Actually, I was on the latest strip, trying to type the comment up for that strip, and it wound up here, so went OOC (out of context) when it was posted to the wrong strip due to all the hopping around the text box did.

    I'm just glad it's fixed now! :D
