6890 Cosmic Cruiser in Classic Space G1 Style
This is a mod of 6890 Cosmic Cruiser in Classic Space G1 colours (light grey, blue, trans-yellow).
About this creation
I've been a Classic Space fan since the first sets came out in Germany in 1979. Although in the 80s the Futuron colours seemed to be cooler the classic colour scheme has earned a place in my heart. Back in the early 80s my little brother had this cool set, the 6890 Cosmic Cruiser. I wanted to have this one, too, but I preferred to spend my money on Technic sets instead ;-))

A few months ago I had the idea of building one in G1 colours and started building it with LDD immediately. I've wanted to build it with real bricks for some time but I only had the chassis plate for the scooter in white or red. I wanted to get a light grey one but I found out that it has never been made in this colour. So I ordered a blue one instead which I got last weekend.

Then I saw Nick's great Classic Space scene with the punk and when I came home from the office I went directly to the basement where the old LEGO boxes are stored. I didn't stop until I had it finished and then modified it a bit more to get the G1 style of LL918, LL924 and LL928. This is the result:












There must be a trans-yellow 4x4 plate with hinge for the top somewhere (I know I had a set with it), but I couldn't find it in the box with the tranparent parts and nowhere else. So I ordered one via BrickLink. The blue one looks OK for now.

So this is my 6890 Cosmic Cruiser in classic Space G1 style. I hope you like it! :-))

Update February 17, 2012: If you like the idea of Futuron spaceships in G1 colours take a look at John Beck's Classic Space Fleet. Take a close look and you'll see a Cosmic Cruiser, too. I just realized that I had written a comment for his Galaxy Commander in October. So the inspiration for this Cosmic Cruiser has probably been that model.

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera Hey Nils! Those book 6000s on BL don't have the sticker sheets in :-( oh well.
I think it's almost impossible to find one with all the stickers. These stickers were like a treasure chest: All those cool designs very well printed and with the correct shape to be put on the LEGO bricks. I still have the two space screens (red astronaut and lunar rover) fixed on bricks and have used them always when I needed a big screen. The patterns for the minifig torsos were great, too. At least you can see how the stickers looked on the photos in the idea book :-))

Hey Nils! Those book 6000s on BL don't have the sticker sheets in :-( oh well. I will look into the cost of dark tan, I think it deserves some Lego lettering but I've got to right "John Player Team Lotus" :-/ might try it on LDD first.

Hi Nils. Lovely stuff. I love the last photo where you can see the space man smiling through the sunroof ;). I too spent my money (well my Mumís money ;)) on technic in the early Eighties so I missed out on many of these sets, but luckily I had just enough to make my small punk ship. Always great to see classic space done well.

Awesome work Nils! I had this set (goodness knows if I still have all the pieces, all my Lego is mixed up now). This looks so much cooler in these old school colours!

This is one if those sets I have a huge amount of nostalgia for. It looks perfect in the alternative livery.
