Fans of British sci-fi should get a kick out of this one. A LEGO fan by the name of Legobob32 has submitted a design for a set to the LEGO Ideas site themed entirely around cult classic British sci-fi comedy series Red Dwarf. He has even got cult customizer Minifigs.me to do him custom minifigures.
Here is his pitch:
“My idea for a potential new Lego set is based on the cult sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf.
Set on board the mining ship of the shows namesake. My set features Dave Lister the last human being alive, Arnold Rimmer a Hologram of his dead bunkmate, CAT a creature that evolved from Lister’s pet cat Frankenstein, an Android named Kryten and finally the ships senile computer system Holly.
As an added incentive, my set also features the shows two favourite recurring characters, Ace Rimmer and Daune Dibbley!
With continuity itself being a running joke on the show, I have decided to use this to my advantage and create a truly unique set, which uses the best aspects from across all the seasons. The RED crew quarters décor from season X, the Holly Hop Drive from season II, the space craft Blue Midget and the male incarnation of Holly.
The sets main features include Lister and Rimmer’s iconic bunk beds (includes the posters inside), a sliding airlock door and not forgetting one of the ship’s mischievous Skutters.
Working in partnership with Minifigs.me who have provided the Fantastic Minifigures featured in this set.
Whether you’re a diehard fan of Red Dwarf, Adult, Child or just love Lego! There’s something here to enjoy for everyone.”
