December 7 – Space – M-Tron Mega Core Magnetizer
Easily my favorite LEGO Space theme growing up, M-Tron holds a special place in my heart. The Mega Core Magnetizer was a set full of play features, and so when I worked on this build, I aimed to represent as many of them as I could in a small space.
This entire build ends up being built “upside down”. This was needed initially to allow the side platforms (directly above the middle wheels) to stay as thin as possible without interfering with the windshield support, as they were both main features of the original model. Continuing with the studs on bottom proves to be useful at several other points, like the black dome and turntable.
