Tasty News: Another Custom Lego MST3K Project Needs Your Support!
Back in May, we brought you a Lego set project created by JMaster featuring the cult show favorite Mystery Science Theater 3000. Well, as it turns out, you can never have enough ideas or merch. There is yet another MST3K-themed Lego set idea out in the ether for you to support. This one comes from Sparkless9 and has all the bells and whistles. This project was started in July of 2014 with Sparkless9 replicating everything a MST3K Lego set should embody. As the Lego Digital Designer inventory has expanded, the set became all the more precise. When the set was finally downloaded Sparkless9 found the other MST3K idea had already been uploaded. No matter! This Satellite of Love still accurately represents everything you love about the Mystery Science Theater 3000 series. The set includes:
“The main characters from MST3K including Joel Robinson, Mike Nelson, Crow T. Robot, Tom Servo, Gypsy, Cambot, Dr. Clayton Forrester, TV’s Frank, Pearl Forrester, the Observer, and Professor Bobo.
The series of six doors are included down the top shaft of the doggy-bone shaped ship, they are fully functional and the top is removable so you can open and close them yourself when movie sign activates!
The two classic rooms: The front top sphere is the bridge where the host segments are carried out, this includes invention exchanges and comedy routines between breaks in the movie. The second room in the back top sphere is the Mystery Science Theater itself, where Joel, Mike, and the Bots are forced to watch the B movies. Currently they are being entertained by the infamous Manos: The Hands of Fate.
Two extra rooms: Though the lower two spheres are unexplained in the show, they have been fitted to include aspects of the show for this set. In the front bottom sphere is Deep 13, it’s where Dr. Clayton Forrester and TV’s Frank reside and send movies up to the Satellite of Love. The last room is in the back bottom sphere, within lies Castle Forrester where Pearl Forrester, the Observer, and Professor Bobo send movies up to the Satellite of Love for the last few seasons while advancing their goal to rule the world.
The Lego Satellite of Love holds a sturdy design that meets the needs for both model display and play.
It also has a very detailed exterior and interior design of all rooms; almost every aspect of this set is accurate to the show.
All sides of each sphere are easily removable and re-attachable to allow space for play and viewing. Each sphere may be completely removed entirely if one wishes, remove the back of the theater room and place your phone behind it instead, this allows you to watch an MST3K episode on your phone along with your Lego characters.”
Now that’s a project worth your backing! Hopefully, you’re not quoting Crow right now with “I wish I was illiterate so I didn’t have to read that.”
