If you spend any time watching reviews of LEGO sets on YouTube, you’ve likely come across the wonderful JANGBRiCKS. His soothing voice, professional presentation style, and dedication to reviewing seemingly every released set make him stand out among a crowded field of LEGO YouTubers. A few years ago, JANG embarked on a mission to review every Classic Space set. I of course was excited to watch his review of the Gamma-V Laser Craft (#6891). Imagine when I scrolled down to the comments on this highly regarded YouTuber’s review and saw statements such as, “Commander Schwartz and his ship! (Lego Space: The Comic anyone?)” and “Tempted to track this one down (only in the $20s on Bricklink!) thanks to the old LEGO Space comic featuring this set and it’s minifig as the star character. Long live Commander Schwartz!” I was delighted to see that, in some small way, to some people, the Gamma-V is seen as “Commander Schwartz’s ship.” Who knows if poor JANG knew what they were going on about?

That Walking Astro Grappler (#6882) just cracks me up every time I look at it. It captures that Classic LEGO Space aesthetic that toes the line between goofy and cool. It’s actually a cleverly designed set. The upright cockpit is unique and the swiveling walking mechanism is a lot of fun. I want to do more with the Walking Astro Grappler in the comic at some point, but decided it would be a fun cameo here.
YOU MUST BREAKDANCE!
