Babylon 5 is brilliant sci-fi, but it is woefully lacking in the LEGO department. Until now, that is!
The beauty of LEGO is that, at its best, it requires no blueprint. Yes, you can purchase a specific kit to make an incredible Millennium Falcon. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. But we think that MOC's (My Own Creation) are the lifeblood of LEGO.
And that is exactly why we were so, so pleased to see that Eurobricks user Vassal had taken the time to build the Babylon 5 station. And we're all the more grateful considering the scope of the project and how much time and effort went into it.
It has taken me 7 months to finish it. I started with LDD, changed the scale, changed again the scale, almost give up (twice, at least), finalized the design, bought pieces, discovered LDD does not take into account Gravity Law , redesigned the internal structure and the "tail", bought more pieces, made some minor changes and finally there it was, my own Babylon 5.
It is 84 cm. long (33 inches) and it has of 2332 pieces (1904 of them are Plates, Tiles or Cheese Slopes and 270 are various types of Bricks 1x1)
That's what we call commitment. And, in our opinion, time well spent. Check out the gallery below for just how well detailed it is. We like it so much we'd love to see Vassal tackle other stations and ships from the show.
