Classic Space Adventures: LL924 Transporter
Expanding from the Classic Space Adventures series of redesigning work, this new LL924 is the latest addition, after the LL918 (see https://ideas.lego.com/projects/115360) and LL928 (see https://ideas.lego.com/projects/68687).
The 924 Transporter is originally a Classic Space LEGO set released in 1979. It was one of the very first sets of LEGO Space.
In this new LL924, the redesign largely focus on enhancing while retaining the notable aesthetics from the 1979 design: the angled slopes, the blue/grey/trans-yellow brick palette and the abundance of “studs-on-top”. Modern bricks such as curved slopes are consciously avoided unless structural stability requires them. Many recognisable features from the 1979 version of LL924 are preserved, such as the sirens, antenna, cone exhausts, tails etc. This is a conscious effort to make this new LL924 a nostalgic build.
The new LL924 is also designed to have the same wing-span as the original 1979 version.
The ship-length has been increased by two studs in this version. This is to allow for more room (and playability) in the cargo bay. Another major change is the additional details on the belly of the ship. The 1979 LL924 has a rather uninteresting anti-stud bottom. The new 2015 LL924 spaceship uses the “studs-on-both-sides” sandwich design to allow for more details or greebles under the ship.
Finally, the LDD file to this project will be made available soon; so do watch out for the updates on this page.
Thank you, I hope you like this work. Do support this project if you like the Classic Space to have a chance to return to the shelves again! Do also take a look at other new Classic Spaceships here!
