“The ice planet Krysto, with its vast network of frozen tunnels and caves, is the capital of a remote part of the universe known as Ice Planet 2002. It is from this snow-covered planet that rocket technicians are conducting top-secret research. Their findings are coveted by the Blacktron forces and even renegades within the Space Police.”
As a child, one of my most fond memories was discovering that Lego was about to release their latest space theme in the 1993 LEGO catalogue. With its neon orange, blue, and white colour scheme, its new planet location, ski’s, visors, rockets, and its Minifigure with identity (Commander Cold with his big moustache, the first female Space figure, and a cool dude that looked like he just came from the ski slopes.) the Ice Planet 2002 theme stood out from its predecessors in so many ways and inspired many new MOC’s in the years that followed.
After rediscovering some of my old sets and rebuilding them with my 5-year-old son, I felt inspired to redesign the old classic series to fit in with today's modern expectations but still keep the classic look and playability of the classic sets. Envisioning it as more of a sequel than a reboot.
With 2023 approaching, the idea I am proposing is to release a 30th Anniversary edition of one of the most memorable Lego Space themes, in my opinion, Ice Planet 2002.
I like to introduce you to my reimagined version of the Ice Planet 2002: Blizzard Baron
The new design also allows extra storage space behind the pilot seat for which can store satellites, additional supplies, and enough space to allow an additional passenger.
I did a slight update to the design of the Classic Ice Planet Minifigures. They got updated faces with actual hairpieces to fit in with the modern Lego Minifig facial designs. New thermal space armour to protect Lt Oakley (aka unnamed crewman with the white hair) against the harsh sub-zero temperatures of Planet Krysto.
