Spacerunner strikes again, but this time with the original Blacktron. We have here his Lucky Wolf, clearly inspired by 6894 Invader
What really caught my attention was the use of the trans red panels as the rear wings. Works really well. the size is a bit deceptive at first, too. Didn't realize that it was the Benny SSS cockpit. I thought it was the smaller version. That retro robot is also adorable, if Blacktron is allowed to be.
Febrovery has moved along, and Blacktron (Especially the first generation) had quite the showing. Nothing compared to what Classic Space had, but Blacktron didn't get featured in a couple The Lego Movie 2 sets, either. So I'll take what I can get.
First up we have this cute little "Drag-Rover" by David Alexander Smith. Nice use of the pan for greebling.
Next we have this interesting rover by Walter Whiteside Jr. with some unique and one-of-a-kind rare production parts. Looks like it is based on early concept art for Blacktron.
Walter also had this "Blacktron Joy Harvester" I really have no idea what goes on in that guy's head, to create such interesting creations...
To end it off, we have this badass rover by Frost. Not going to say anything about it. Just too badass for that.
Imagine you are walking down an aisle in a toy store in the late 80s, and saw this sitting on a shelf. Walter Whiteside Jr. either has inside information, or a really good imagination, for he built this MOC that he says is based on the original Blacktron concept.
I'm quite certain if this was actually a set, it would be the strangest space set out there. It's kind of cool, but very strange at the same time.
Found this beauty on Brickshelf. Looking at it is a breath of fresh air for me as most fighters after a while seem to all feel like the same design. This however has it's own unique look that makes it stand out. I particularly like the use for the large Blacktron 1 panels for the side wings.
I've featured Spacerunner here a few times before, but I couldn't possibly resist posting his latest, titled the Angulus. It feels a bit reminiscent of 6981 Aerial Intruder, with a central section and two pods on the side and widely spaced engines.
A very unique ship, and top notch presentation. Love the use of the 10x10 dishes.
It's been awhile since I posted one of my own MOCs, but I am proud to show off my latest Blacktron 1 SHIP. Yes, you heard me. Blacktron ONE! I know, I know, I'm much more of a 2nd Gen Blacktron builder, but sometimes you just got to build a big ol, nasty ol, Blacktron one SHIP.
This is far and away my best Blacktron 1 MOC, maybe even my best Blacktron MOC period.
The inspiration for this ship, in case it wasn't obvious was the Renegade, and a Klingon D9 Battle cruiser. I feel the two designs really went well together in this MOC.
