Cosmic Cruiser redux!

Postby jasbury » Wed Jun 20, 2012 6:40 pm

My remake of the 6890 Cosmic Cruiser set from 1982. :space:

Thanks ~ Lego Knight ~ for the background!

The Cosmic cruiser, although not the fastest starship in the federation, is a useful exploration and transportation vehicle. Its capable of low-altitude travel, and can deploy the pilot's seat as an X-5 Land speeder. As the Cosmic Cruiser is not primarily built for combat, it's equipped with only two front-tipped forward facing torpedo launchers. (I still haven't decided if the gadgets on the wing tips are weapons or antennas...)

The federation X-5 land speeder is great for space rides, enjoying the intergalactic scenery, or traveling throughout a star outpost. The federation discovered that if the back engine was switched off, they gave off a very low heat signature. Because of this, they made their first combat appearance on the raid on Spyrius IV deploying soldiers into enemy bases. They were also good for a fast getaway. Their biggest flaw, however, is that they can only fly for a limited time before needing to be charged while attached to the Cosmic Cruiser Federation Starship.

Cool cruisers.

For the URL question, need to ditch those "quotation marks" around them. It's a pain when flickr add them sometimes. depending on where you copy the URL.

The detachable engine/scooter is great. I'd love to see more shots of how it fits into the ship.
Great remake.

Love the engines on the X-5, though I feel it needs something on the sides.

Agreed. I just had to get it to fit inside the Cosmic Cruiser :D

Very, very good!
The original set was my first space-set with some "playability", and so it still is something special to me.
I love your MOC very much!

Love it! Great detailing on around cockpit and wings. Not a fan of the nose.
