Galaxy Explorer Mk.II
Last Updated ago. Click "Updates" above to see the latest.
Successor to the legendary LL 928 / LL 497 and big brother to the Space Cruiser Mk. II.
The flag ship of a fleet of the Classic Space Mk. II exploration vehicles: a credible companion theme to any Lego City. No weapons, no wars, no aliens. But bucket loads of playability, creativity and fun.
With 355 pieces (incl. 2 minifigs) very affordable for such a large model. Measures circa 14" (35cm) long, 9" (22cm) wide and 3" (9cm) high.
Based on the proven designs from the late 1970s, significantly enhanced by cutting edge electronics and advanced composite materials, thus extending the life of these highly reliable workhorses for decades more of space exploration
UPDATE: I heard the feedback loud and clear, so back to original Classic Space colour scheme!
Must admit, the real deal looks gorgeous.. AND... it will go much better with the upcoming "Benny's Spaceship" set from LEGO Movie.
The slight downside is though that the modern window parts do not yet exist in transparent yellow. I wish that LEGO made these available in a new set, so that we could build this creation in the - let's face it - likely event this would never be released as an official set.. But I remain hopeful!
More powerful and efficient rocket engines
Refined wing design from carbon fiber reinforced polymer
Enlarged cargo compartment
Upgraded glass cockpit
