The Start of it all
This classic space set was my all time favorite and one of the very first Lego sets that I received as a child. This set along with all of my other childhood toys was lost in a large flood back in the early 2000's. I have searched for a reasonably priced replacement ever since then. When I got it in the mail all of the great memories of my childhood came flooding back 30 plus years later. I decided to update my transporter, carefully storing each replaced part in its original box with the instructions, which even after all these years I still did not need to assemble this set. I hope you like and enjoy this bit of Classic Space LEGO history. Jimmie

Quoting Jeremy McCreary Such a cool transporter, Jimmie! How could I have missed this set?
This was my absolute favorite of all the CS sets. These complete with box are pretty pricey on Bricklink. I lucked out on E-bay after searching for about 10 years. I wanted it to look like something Bennie from the LEGO movie would be proud to own. Thanks for stopping by and liking and the great comment as well.

Quoting Nick Barrett One of the very best sets of any kind, ever. Glad you enjoy yours!
I truly do. I was really lucky to pick this set up complete with box and instructions for only 30.00 in an E-bay auction. Thanks for stopping by with a like and the kind words.

Quoting Duck Patť Very nice! My first set was some sort of construction truck, but my favorite childhood set was probably Von Nebula from Hero Factory
Appreciate the like and kind words. Great to hear about fond memories of simpler times and good fun.

Quoting Oran Cruzen Excellent my very good friend! I started with a city Airplane, in yellow, about 2010, for my current period of Lego Time. Not really sure about the past, I forgot! LOL
Well I can guarantee you this whatever it was, it was amazingly well built my good friend. Keep up the great work Sensei Oran and have a great week. Thanks for stopping by and liking.

Quoting Ron L. Mitchell Classic Space was where I began, I still have this set though not built currently. Then Blacktron quickly followed, 40 years later I still love Blacktron and Space Police!
It is great to read that you are still active with the themes that drew you to LEGO in the first place. I loved Classic Space as a kid. I had the command base and several of the small ships and rovers, but this transporter got played with the most. Thanks for the like and the great comment.

Quoting Sven ;o) I started my Lego time with City and never moved over to other themes like Classic Space, Castle, Pirates etc. We had so many sets collected, three different airports, three different police stations, three different fire stations, so many other buildings and vehicles and all got lost... I know how you feel my brother. I'm very sorry for that you lost all your stuff in this flood but I'm glad you got your first set back + all the memories connected to it. It's a pretty nice CS set with lots of playability and details. But it seems that your's is in some details different to the original 6950, am I right? Jimmie my brother, Julia and I wish you an Jill a beautiful Sunday and hope you have a great rest of the weekend. Lots of love, hugs and greets from your German family Take care, stay safe and enjoy your beautiful set ;)
You are quite right and have a sharp eye my brother. The satellite was removed and the rockets color scheme was changed. I wanted my transporter to be something that Bennie would have. I am sitting here waiting for the sun to come up so I can re-shoot the third creation I showed you on Skype. I also wanted to tell you that if you wanted to find out more about your brother in NC look up Anthony Bourdain visits West Virginia. You will then know all about where I was born and raised for the first 18 years of my life.The world is a sadder place without him.He will be missed. Much love, hugs and greets to Sven and Julia from Jill and Jimmie In NC. Thank you soooo much for the like and kind, inspiring, words my brother. Have a great day.

Quoting Clayton Marchetti Sorry to hear that you lost everything in a flood Jimmy. Itís a great looking set. I donít remember this one . Iíll have to go look it up. I love the front cockpit. What an awesome looking rocket it carries. It looks like a set with hours of playability. Glad you were able to get another one.
Thanks Clayton The mods I made to the original set center mostly around the rocket, by changing the color scheme and removing the satellite and bringing more blue elements. I would have made these mods back then, but no Bricklink or Pick a Brick back then. Thanks for the like and the kind words. Have a great day.

Quoting Josh Amberman For me it all began with the Power Miners and Space Police. Evolved into Star Wars, Dinosaurs, and Aliens, and I began to get into the City more and more.
I know what you mean my friend, Classic Space started it all for me. Then STAR WARS led me to MOCpages where all of the talented builders here inspired me to start my 1/64th scale fire stations and eventually 6 wide custom fire trucks. Thanks for the like and the kind comment, have a great rest of the week end.
