Did you see the LEGO LC-130 Hercules we sent to Antartica at the end of last year? Did you want your own rocket-powered ski-plane? Over the last couple of months, TBB’s own Ralph Savelsberg worked with Dan Siskind and his team at Brickmania to turn Ralph’s model of this iconic aircraft into a custom LEGO kit you can buy.
Ralph is awesome, Brickmania is awesome, science is awesome, airplanes are awesome — we couldn’t be happier that one of our team’s designs is being turned into a Brickmania kit!
Priced at $290, Ralph’s LC-130 Hercules includes 596 LEGO parts, printed instructions, custom decals, and lots of working features. Like all of Brickmania’s excellent kits, the cost of the kit reflects the small size of the production run compared to official LEGO kits made in a factory, and of course the time it takes to design the kit, assemble the necessary parts in enough quantities, create instructions, package the kit, and so on.
Brickmania kits tend to sell out quickly, so get your copy of Ralph’s LC-130 Hercules while you can.
