Ok, let me explain how this travesty of nature came about. There I was, minding my own bees wax on Flickr; I'd just posted my entry for Chris Doyle's Star Wars Spooky comp when Hobo4ever christens my witch-speeder "classic spastle" which I thought was hilarious. Somehow from that, I remembered when I was a kid how I could NEVER decide if I loved Space or Castle more. I got a few sets from both themes so I never had much of a collection of either (there's a lession in there somewhere about fence-sitting). Anyhoo, for some reason I figure "hey, why not combine the two?" And presto! The affront to God is what you see before you.
Based on the classic of the classic: 497
You know what else just popped into my head. I can vividly recall when I was 12 or 13 at the department store toy section with my Dad, and he goes "Show me what you'd like for Christmas mate".
"Anything Lego Castle Dad!"
"Uh, son, don't you think you might enjoy some of the Technic Lego now that you're older? You don't want to play with those knights and things still do you??"
Imagine what he thinks of his 30 year old son now!!
This is an awesome idea ! Like you I loved Classic Space and Castle when I was a kid but I never thought of mixing them this way (although I recently mixed Castle and Star Wars). This is pure genius ! 5/5
I fart in your general direction, Pizza Da Hut-thingy. You and your filthy English SSSppppKNNiggittts!
This, I love. I bow before the pure genius of this MOC. Two of my favorite movies are Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Spaceballs. It's an odd combination, but this creation is the unholy love child of Graham Chapman and Mel Brooks.
That's an interesting combination... I see some profit to be made here.

Leave it to Ocean to take two wonderful parts of my child hood and make them just that much better. I love the engine mounts! I was thinking about, after getting more appropriate parts, building another Classic Space MOC and the engines came to mind. You have this MASSIVE thruster affixed to a flat wing with one of those little connections ...thats it. Thank you Shannon Ocean. You have inspired me yet again (Along with David and John).
He*l, you're never too old for LEGO, mate. I've still gotta work on my improvisation lines when somebody asks me the "honestly, do you still like that plastic stuff" question. Anyhoo, The triangular (classic gray) base works perfectly here. Just add a little Steampunk and Castle, and you've got one kick-a*s spaceship.
