I was excited when LEGO introduced the Classic Space shirt minifigure torso in 2009 (the 30th anniversary of Classic Space), because it was such a great callback to a legendary theme from the past. But I couldn’t help notice that my favorite Classic Space minifig was missing from the design. I was sure Schwartz wouldn’t miss that either, and would bring it up in the most uncomfortable of ways!

While I haven’t seen it noted or discussed anywhere, 2008 is the 30th anniversary of Lego’s Space theme. I’ve decided to celebrate that (in my own twisted way) by introducing a recurring storyline that features the 918-1 Space Transport, a set introduced in 1978. It’s the only set I own from the first five years of Lego Space, but it’s a nice-looking ship. Lego would use its design as the basis for a couple of larger ships, including the legendary Galaxy Explorer.
UPDATE: While the first sets from the Lego Space theme were dated 1978, it seems they actually saw wide release in 1979, meaning everyone else celebrated the 30-year anniversary a year after me. Oh, well.
I like how the horror movie close-up turned out.
