Spaceships A-Z, LEGO
« on: March 13, 2011, 12:38:16 PM »
Andertoons is obviously quite fun of Star Wars spaceships. So much that he now has made and photographed a copy of each A-Z spaceship! It is not really for me, except for the boyish tech beauty, maybe - I was never a fan of Star Wars or anything newer than Moon Base Alpha - but you may like it, so I thought I would tell about it ;-)

LEGO Alphabet Spaceships A-Z

When I was a kid growing up on Star Wars, I thought the X-wing was the best spaceship I'd ever seen. Of course the Millennium Falcon was great, and goodness knows the good old NCC-1701 was awesome, but the X-wing and its letter inspired brethren the Y-wing and A-wing (what the hell was with the B-wing?! It looked nothing like a B!) were just the coolest.

So later on as I got back into LEGO and was building spaceships I thought revisiting the idea of alphabet shaped ships would be fun.

It's taken me almost two years (I have kids and a job after all), but now I've done all 26 letters of the alphabet in glorious spacey LEGO. Click on each pic to be taken to more pics on Flickr. (BTW, you can download them via the "view all sizes" link in the Flickr light box.)

A Model T spaceship, eh?  Is it only available in black?  ;)

I still like the Liberator from Blake's 7.  There's even a Lego version!  And of course (being English, and of a certain age) the immortal Dan Dare's Anastasia and Zylbat.
