Brickspace Dictionary: Classic Space

Classic Space (n.) (Cla·ssic Space)

Classic Space is a famous Lego series of sets. It ran from 1978 - 1987, and was released just after the invention of the minifig.

Classic Space sets are known for their simplicity and colour scheme. They always have a light grey + blue + trans orange colour scheme, and came in simple shapes and with simple building techniques. Though having a basic idea on space (spaceships were driven with steering wheels, and there were only a few ships with cockpits), they inspired many young builders and cleverly followed the momentum brought by the Space Race in the 60s.
