Mars Mission MX-81 Hypersonic Operations Aircraft by DanteZX Mars Mission MX-81 Hypersonic Operations Aircraft by DanteZX
This is one of my most favorite lego sets of all time. When lego made this giant drop ship I had to have it. I mean look at it, it just screams awesome. The drop ship offers many play features as well. Many of which I'll be discussing. The first is that the front can detach two small air ships that can fly around and blast things. The second feature is that there is a science lab inside that opens up while the ships are detached. The third play feature is that the back end can swing down with a push of a button and pick up units from the ground and make a quick escape. Click on the links below for a further description.

Awesome!  I have always been a huge fan of Mars Mission, and I really wanted to get this, but never had the money.  I also didn't know that it even had a lobar inside.  That ship is really packed full.

I fully agree with you about the set, but I don't think you've seen my remastered version of the set. While the original version was fantastic, I knew there were still ways that the dropship could have been enhanced. I'll include the link to it below.

Well the Galactic Titan coming out in August is just as great as the MX-81 H.O.A. Perhaps even better. Even though the airship is great in that set. It isn't anywhere as good as the MX-81 H.O.A. But what gives the Galactic Titan the advantage is the ground rolling tank. From what I've seen, the tank looks great but there are a lot of empty cavities in it so theres room for customization which I love to do. ^^

Well, it seems I'm gonna have an extra set of hands with this project. I was telling my buddy about it, and I decided to take it a step furthe by adding in a space heliport and an adjacent dock for the galactic titan from the galaxy squad series. Bad part is, is that the titan doesn't come out til August, so I'm gonna have to wing it on a few things til I get my hands on it.

Yeah this was actually the only set I could get my hands on because all the other sets were selling like hot cakes at my toysrus store. I really tried to get the rover tank but that never happened.

The set isn't that old. It actually came out in 2008 and retailed for $79.99. If your interested see if you can get one on ebay. It's a great set that offers a lot of customizable options. ^^
