M:Tron 64
The M:Tron 64 model is my entry in the classic space pocket money contest. This 64 part model can be rebuilt into one of 21 alternate models. All parts were available in various colors prior to the discontinuation of M:tron. The main model exhibits only "legal" connections and can be built on a flat table without a lot of picking up/turning over. Main set features: Magnet, Opening canopy, extending commo array, radio, wrench.
About this creation

"Speedy chair" alternate model.


"Box flyer" alternate model


"Swift" Alternate model. The wing connections may or may not be legal.





The parts layout


Some more alternate models:

Box grabber


Folding wing box carrier.


Here it is landed with wings folded.


"the wedge" long range scout.


Speeder bike with hyperway bars. (the future version of highway bars on a motorcycle)


Remote commo relay


Delivery speeder.
The following pics show two very similar models. The first is the basic model, the second two are of a more involved model.

Basic box swooper


Fast box grabber with extending commo equipment, front corner

Rear corner.

The next alternate model can have the wings oriented in a few different ways. Two variants are shown. both use dishes as landing gear which deploy by flattening the wings.

Variant A, flying.

Variant A, on the ground

Variant B in flight.

A glider.

Here are a few options when you use the dishes and "plate, modified 1x4 offset(4590)" as the bottom or back of a creation.


A stand-up flyer.

A communications tower.

A box jack for moving those boxes around the warehouse

A zero-turn gravel smoother for keeping the gravel orderly.

Some friendly robots.



Scorpion bot for snatching boxes. Or hitting minifigs with a head-sized magnet, your choice.

A great looking space-scooter type ship. I like things such as the dishes underneath for landing and the various engines. -9- The Mag lift and Speedy chair are nice looking alternatives, though I wish that they used more of the parts from the set. The Box Flyer looks great fun. I can imagine it moving cargo around. -7- Loads of space fun to be had here. Opening canopy, deployable antenna wotsit (could it detach and be a satellite too?) and the whole magnet thing. The build looks pretty solid and though the main engine might get knocked off fro time to time, it would be easy to pop it back on again. -9- Iím too old to have had M:Tron :( From my rummaging around on the web I think that youíve got the look just right and mades something that would have complemented the range nicely. -9-Total score-34-

Design: All you want from M: Tron. A clearly defined little ship, which ties nicely to the delivery function. Not being able to land with the box attached is a design problem. 7 Piece Selection: The alternatives are all good. The smaller builds are my favourite, especially the bot and the crane. The larger builds do feel a little close to the main model, and that has influenced my scoring. 7 Playability: Great play feature with the cargo box and magnet, which does lose marks for the inability to carry cargo and land. 7 CS Factor: This is M: Tron as it was designed back in the day. Great understanding of the theme. 8

Quoting Locutus 666 Awesome! I like it. Excluding the container itself, you captured the M:Tron style very good. The alternative models are great too. The only disadvantage is the fact that the main model cant stand on the ground while the container is mounted.
I didn't have any red boxes, but the door is original M:tron. I wanted the box to tuck up into a hole behind the seat, but that would have required more parts and too much turning the model around in different ways.

Ticks all the boxes for me. A great m-tron vehicle with play value and some well considered alternative models.
