Very cool! I'd like to see more photos when it's finished.

The little chap looks pleased as punch! Mine's more into mini-planes at the moment, although we did once come up with a multi-pilot robot made up of... well... mini-planes! It has to be said with the likes of the X-Wing sets (which are epic) there are a lot of parts around for this sort of project these days... Good luck! Dai-X will have to be pretty dinky, but God knows how many pieces you'd need to do anything bigger!

Welcome to the forum and thanks for uploading.

I was about to say, someone looks very happy.

Please upload as much imagery as you want. We're running on unlimited space since about 3 weeks ago.

I think an X-Bomber refit or X-Bomber the Next Generation would be a fun project in Lego.

PS: You want one of these for the Moon Base base, lol:

I think they came out before I was little but there must be millions still floating around. :D

A standard minifig would be close enough to the right scale, and breaks up into the right three sections!

Wow. Childhood flashback right between the eyes as soon as I saw that! Just like the retro 80s spaceship from the Lego movie! I laughed the other day in WHSmiths, there was a book of classic Lego designs and on the front cover was this ship I remember as being huge, and it really wasn't so much! It's only really Lego City that does space kits these days, Star Wars aside I suppose. I do have an unusual unopened box from America that has green astronaut mini-figures - they'd never been made in that colour before apparently. Fond memories of those old sets...

I pulled any limitations on the size and number of attachments people can add on here.
They can hardly bitch at me now for using the space.

I voted for this Power Rangers Lego because Power Rangers are great and Facebook told me to:

Edit:
This was pretty inspirational, can't wait for the movie:
