About this creation
This model was inspired by set 3831, (Rocket Ride, from the 2008 Spongebob line) albeit with one more section height-wise, a pointier nose cone, gray color scheme, and a more organized inside with NO stickers! The robot helper is inspired by the robot customer in the 2007 set number 4981 (another Spongebob set called The Chum Bucket). The human crew should have the new classic space outfit as seen here ( www.flickr.com/photos/brickset/33022044123/in/faves-55973... ) for their torso prints.



This ship is the forerunner for all of the other Lego space ships: in 1970, this crucial piece of history launched from LegoLand Space Port for a mission to the moon. This was very soon after the failed 1965 launch of 801 series Space Rocket ( brickset.com/sets/801-3/Space-Rocket ), which killed the the brave crew of Kat Aclysm: female rocket science genius and designer of the experimental ship, and Abraham "Abe" Normal, the best test pilot in the academy. Their deaths at the Samsonite launch pad were not in vain though, as the newly founded LegoLand Aero-Space Authority (renamed Classic Space Command in 1978) rebuilt their reputation as the premier brick-built space agency by launching the "Innovator", also known as LL001 which in early August 1969 made history as the first mini figure - built object on the moon! This rocket and it's crew (Bill Fold, Penny Wise, and S1L-V3R the robot) made history with their two days on the moon's surface, providing the foundations for the Classic Space Moon-base series of missions.

(The above story line is 100% fiction.)



The rocket features an opening section to get at the interior, which features two levels of computers, a cockpit, and one empty section for storage space for the robot. Also, the trans-clear cockpit should have this print: www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=47543pb05...



The crew of this fateful mission was commander Bill Fold and scientist Penny Wise, along with their robot helper S1L-V3R. (nicknamed Silver) Either one of the astronauts can go in the cockpit even with their helmet on.
