Lego Project: Ground Explorer

(Project completed: 1998)

I had forgotten about this project until I recently unearthed the photos I had taken before disassembling it. This was my vision of a ground-based version of the ultimate Lego set, LL928, the Galaxy Explorer. I took some inspiration from the wheel assembly of another favorite Lego set, LL 6950, and added a bunch of my own detail that I thought a mobile laboratory and exploration vehicle should have, such as lots of computers, plenty of tools and weapons, and external robot arms for picking up samples.
