As part of the ongoing Lego Ideas program, Lego fan Bob Turner is determined to bring to reality (or as near as it gets for the crew of the Starbug) his awesome new construction kit inspired by the cult sci-fi show Red Dwarf.
Set on board the mining ship of the show’s namesake, Bob’s set features Dave Lister, the last human being alive, Arnold Rimmer, a hologram of his dead bunk-mate, CAT, a creature that evolved from Lister’s pet cat Frankenstein, an Android named Kryten and finally the ship’s senile computer system Holly. As an added incentive, the set also features the show’s two favourite recurring characters, Ace Rimmer and Daune Dibbley!
With continuity itself being a running joke on the show, Bob has decided to use this to his advantage and create a truly unique set, which uses the best aspects from across the entire series, from the crew quarters décor from season X to the Holly Hop Drive from season II, along with the space craft Blue Midget and, of course, the male incarnation of Holly.
The set’s main features include Lister and Rimmer’s iconic bunk beds (right down to the posters inside), a sliding airlock door and not forgetting one of the ship’s mischievous Skutters.
Whether you’re a diehard fan of Red Dwarf or just love Lego, there’s something here for everyone to enjoy.
