If you have read my review ofyou might want to skip this part as you don’t get any new Information. I still like the Black Tron Minifigs. They are pure awesome.
The dark look fits perfect for their Bad Guy role.
With some modifications, you can easily build a ship, that looks way cooler than most of the ships today. Funny 6914 of the day: LEGO decided to market Blacktron with all the Blacktron figures’ visors up, because a query had revealed that parents found the figures to look evil, dangerous, scary and menacing with the visors down.
I am not making this up! Didn’t stop the vehicles from looking evil, though. The colors are direct opposite of the good guys’ white and trans-blue, and looks great on this vehicle, IMO. And I think it would still work when opposed with the galaxy’s newest crime-prevention equipment!
Didn’t leave me wondering what other features there’d might be on it! This is one set that really benefits from mods. I think the stock model has a couple of flaws, but they can all be fixed pretty easily.
As you said, the cockpit is full of holes and should have room for a second guy given its size. I also thought the rear-mounted guns looked strange, so I mounted them on the wings instead, as seen here. The funniest part about this is that Blacktron wasn’t overtly evil when they originally came out.

They actually seem to be cooperating with Futuron in the catalogs. However, when the Space Police came out inthey got pissed off and started attacking the Futurons and destroying their monorail. TLG decided to make them the bad guys only at that point. Thanks for the fine review, RangerBob. Ah, I see, that must be why those MM jellies could not move their arms If kids are pissing themselves over Blacktron minifigs I’ve got very little hope for my generation.
This set is good I don’t like it as much as the Renegade, which imo is the star of Blacktron I, but I still really like it. I don’t like it as much as the Renegadewhich imo is the star of Blacktron I, but I still really like it. The set in bold and below is the star relic of my childhood. I don’t think the Renegade is that impressive. It looked great in the pictures but I was rather disappointed when I got one myself off ebay.
It has a lot of details on the exterior, but the overall structure is flimsy and there is very little interior room, not even enough space for the second pilot.
There is also the same issue of holes in the cockpit as this Battrax. I made a modified ship using the same 66941 shape instead it’s in the link I posted earlier. The Invader is small, but has a lot of features and is just about flawless for what it’s supposed to be.

Well, Blacktron Llego was in essence late Classic Space done in black and yellow. I love Blacktron 1 as a theme too, just not that particular set. BT1 probably had the most “evil” appearance of any of the bad guy themes. Yes, the Invader is very nicely designed, although I’m not sure I would call it noble. It looks more like it’s ready to cause trouble. I wasn’t born for it either, but still think that the minifigs are boss.
I, for some reason like the trans neon color scheme better, but, like the lego space comic implies, the seem more like buisness men. I can totaly see them as vehicle merchents Expanding on what Freddie said, I also remember reading that they put off the skeleton minifigs for a few years because TLG thought kids would lgeo scared of them and that minifig could die.
I admit, the Blacktron thing does sound a little ridiculous. ,ego looked too evil with their visors down??? And I thought parents today were ridiculous! Now you got Monster Fighters and stuff, with giant Vampire alarm clocks and stuff. Reviews like this make me sad I don’t own any classic-era space sets. And some prices are rather extortionate nowadays You need to be a member in order to leave a comment.

LEGO Space Battrax (6941)
But today lets have a look on the Bad Guys. Black Tron set But look in the eyes of our little buddy here. He can’t be bad, can he? The Vehicle the vehicle has a really nice design and an awesome color scheme.
But they look a bit cheap to me. It also has a clever damping system. The hoses do their jobs pretty well. Also nice are the container at each side, where you can put your guns or tools. As you may have noticed, the vehicle comes with some technic pieces. That’s because the vehicle is alterable.
You can leave the main frame behind to have a nice flight around the planet. But you should stay in the atmosphere as I hit the road. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites. Posted January 31, edited. Posted January 31, Posted February 3, Im annoyed that I wasn’t born to have Blacktron.
