Review: LEGO 497 / 928 Galaxy Explorer

LEGO Set No. / Name
497 / 928 Galaxy Explorer

Classic Space

Release Date

Where you got/bought it from
BrickLink (complete, with instructions, no box)

Offical Retail Price

No. of Minifigs
4 – 2 red & 2 white classic spacemen

338 including 1 crater plate & 1 lunar landing plate. No stickers!

Growing up, I used to pour over the Lego catalogues. As a young boy interested in spaceships, this big set has always been top of my want list. Alas, parents only willing to buy the smaller sets for me.

Fast forward to the present, I saw this set featured in the 2009 LEGO Book by DK and triggered the desire to own it one day. Finally found a complete and reasonable price set on Bricklink, and here it is!

Review: TFP Wheeljack

Wheeljack only appeared in one episode of TF Prime season 1 (episode 8 "Con Job"). But his character proved popular enough to warrant a toy in the first wave of TF Prime Robots in Disguise.

The design of TF Prime Wheeljack is obviously based on the G1 version, with similar face and colour scheme.
