I was going to spend the morning seeing if I could replicate some of those Japanese bricks into something compatible with the standard brick, but after updating some of the design software, nothing wants to load.
Guess I’ll keep working on my bugship.
Years ago, I bought this weird bug Lego from a set that was some tie-in to a terrible live action tv show. It was between 2002 and 2005 but I can’t seem to find any reference that it ever existed. I wasn’t impressed with the single set I bought so after about fifteen minutes it was disassembled and in the pile. It’s sort of like Bionicle, but not cool at all. Apparently no one was impressed with it, and it’s been erased from history. It’s not even on Lego’s website.
Okay, after a full half hour of searching, I’ve discovered it’s called “Galidor“. Apparently the show also served as a lame Doctor Who spin off, complete with a small blue spaceship that’s much bigger on the inside and is known by an abbreviation (TDMN, or Trans-Dimensional Navigation Module). Srsly, worst Lego tie-in ever.
Anyways, after watching a thousand hours of bad science fiction television, I’ve decided to use these awful parts to build a living insect spaceship MOC, ala Lexx or Farscape.
