Space Marine

Postby Alex » Wed Jun 13, 2012 1:17 am

So I got the space marine from series 7 and decided that his equipment could use a little upgrading. First off, I turned his pistol into a high caliber assault rifle:
Image
Second, I decided that any lone badass space marine deserves an equally badass fighter. I give you the Saturn 15 interceptor:

The Saturn 15 was designed with a sleek profile to give it maximum speed and maneuverability. In order to reduce weight, it hasn't been given much in the way of weapons or armor, instead relying on the skills of the pilot. It does have three laser cannons and a lone proton torpedo, which is essentially what Luke Skywalker managed to take out the Deathstar with. The proton torpedo is below the middle gun:
Image
A large pair of twin engines supply this ship more than enough speed to beat other fighters. You can also see the two spots to hold weapons and equipment:
Image
The cockpits fully opens to allow for easy entrance and exit:
Image
Finally, some music to go along with all of this. The music video fits in pretty well and the spaceman in it looks very similar to the space marine.

Very cool stuff.

On a related note, who will be the first on the boards to build a SPESH MEHREEN chapter? :D

Love the rifle, makes putting binoculars on the end of mine look silly.

The ship is nice, but it makes me wonder what's up with the front?
It's all... crooked and lopsided...

The reason for the lopsidedness of the wings is because they are at an angle and they don't touch, so one wing may slant a little more than the other at a given time. I've fixed the wings somewhat since the picture was taken and they are a little less lopsided now though.

Yeah, I heard about that. Looks really cool; I hope they can get a good 10,000 votes. I'd love to see those as sets.

Classic Space was based around exploration and discovery.
It's like a anti-war charity that deal in arms.
Either do it right or don't do it at all. You can't point gun at people and say "I am against guns".
Space war ships are fine, just don't brand them as explorers!

I've noticed that LEGO have completely abandoned one of their core values, the "No guns" rule. First lifted for licensed themes, and now from all.


Nice! I like the magazine.

Seriously, I quote their anti-gun policy in my signature. I think it's buried somewhere in some interview.

Lego should do themselves a favor and get rid of that.

Classic space was *always* about conquest with megaphone blasters - don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

I remember reading the stubby used to ban people for a post that said "I concur."

Actually, it happened right before the mass dimmy purge and exodus of lesser members.
