Bubble fighter mini from Lost in Space
From the first five minutes of the 1998 movie Lost in Space.
About this creation
As soon as I got back from watching it in the theaters I tried to build what has come to be known as the "Bubble fighter." I tried several years later, but it still wasn't accurate. However this time I had a reference image to look at, and finally built something I'm pleased with.

Bubble fighter with swiveling cockpit
I was able to get the cockpit to rotate B-wing style as it does in the movie.

I am quite happy with how the mouth pattern came out.

In the movie the pilot sits in a transparent sphere, which rotates B-wing style keeping the pilot right side "up."

The "upper" wing has an additional smaller wing with additional antenna/weapons.

Building the wings was pretty tricky, in trying to get the shape, and the face pattern.
Thanks for looking.

i too am quite happy with how the mouth pattern came out! at first glance it didn't occur to me at all that this was "micro scale" compared to minifig. GREAT! i think you packed A LOT of detail in this design. hopefully i'll build a companion one day as well! what is that trans sphere though? [[i've been out of LEGO for 10+ years]]

Quoting Bourne 223 Hey T Bone. thought that since this is your newest you'd pay close attention. look: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/106156#reviews http://mocpages.com/moc.php/106199 look familiar? he also had our/your star dragon but i told him if he didn't know whose it was to delete it. he only deleted that one though, so i posted comments on both of the others. plus i think this may be yours too: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/106186 he changed some colors and added scorchings but still. thought you should know that there was some copying happening. nice fighter too. very sleek and good color scheme. i'd buy one if they were real ships :D
Thanks. I really don't mind so much about giving and receiving credit, so it's all good. But thank you for looking out for these. :)

Looks great. But since it's taped together, I give it a 3/5

Holy Beelzebub this is sexy! A great rendition of an awesome fighter from a very under-represented film on MOCpages. I've seen few Lost in Space MOCs and I haven't seen any bubble fighters. Great job!
