Space Police

The old space sets were a favorite of mine as a child, and I am really glad to see lego return to this.

I love the semi-truck with rockets attached. As a kid, all of my lego adventures took place in space. If a relative or friend bought me a kit from another line I rockets and suddenly it was space worthy.

Does Robot Monster have an electronic feature? I notice a thin wire leading from it.

It's ironic that Lego would

It's ironic that Lego would make a large robot set when they just killed off Exo-Force - a whole line that was filled with them - because of poor sales.

The Space stuff has been a long-time want from the Lego community. While the Mars stuff was a move in the right direction, this is finally getting back to that great era of Lego.

I wish that I could have

I wish that I could have gotten some classic Space Police sets- those were kick-ass. But these new ones are meh.

I already picked-up the smallish Mine Mech (#8957) in December, but have yet to build/review it. The Thunder Driller (8960) looks interesting- reminds me of The Mole mobile drill from "Thunderbirds"- but I'm not sure if I wanna get it or not; same with the Granite Grinder (8958) and Crystal Sweeper (8961).
It looks like they already expanded the Power Miners line beyond the seven debut sets I saw last month online.

And I agree with you, Duke Togo- why are they bringing back giant poseable robots when they axed my beloved Exo-Force so unceremoniously?

Holy crap, that Space Police

Holy crap, that Space Police stuff looks exactly like the crap I would try and make as a kid... I agree with you, to be 7 again!

Space Police!

Oh man, I loved the original black, red, and blue Space Police when I was a kid. I had the entire Space Police line except for the really huge expensive spaceship and the space jail. I never liked the green sequel to Space Police, but the original sets are awesome. I think I actually have them all in my closet somewhere. My favorite was the second largest jet that carried its own jail cell and had a crazy battery powered light built in for arresting little Blacktron Lego bad guys.
