This MOC was made for a mars mission MOC off. I have no mars misson parts. I cant pass up a challenge, so here is my take on a mars mission.
Backstory: This is a team of terraformers out to plant specialized vegetation on mars.
Minifigs: two workers, a foreman, and a science officer. Ranks are shown on the front of their uniforms.
Equipment(middle row). algae canister, short range breather pack, multi-day life pack, jetpack, communications dish, PDA, algae vial.
Most equipment can stick to a bracket on the minifig's back, making popping off their heads to change equipment unnecessary.
About this creation
Here you can see the team in action. Foreman has scouted a location with the jetpack, science officer and a worker are testing a plant sample before leaving it, and another worker is GPS mapping the plant site.
Mission complete. every day the air is a little bit more breathable. soon the team will be able to work without breather packs and helmets.
EDIT: I should reveal how I made the astronauts. I took the arms off some harry potter and star wars torsos, turned them backward, and put the arms back on. then i swapped out the normal hands for red hands off my spyrius figs. For the legs, i found some red legs, and swapped out the hip section to have red hips with gray legs. The helmets are regular red helmets with the black visor from the star wars rebel helmets. The decal on the front of the uniforms was drawn in MS paint and printed onto a clear mailing label. clear is important. that way the color matches up better. The mailing labels were put on carefully and trimmed to fit with a very sharp knife.
Quoting Ben Dean
AWESOME please tell me where you got the bits for the astronauts
The torsos: 3 are harry potter turned backward, one is a AT-ST pilot turned backward. I made the decals in MSpaint and printed them on clear mailing labels, then trimmed to fit. the helmets and gloves: spyrius. visors: star wars rebel troops. legs: harry potter legs with red hips. Heads: 2x standard, 1x castle, 1x harry potter.
