Love the Lego bus! I really love how Lego have built little touches like
that ability to pull it apart in sections to provide different details.

Did the Star Trek 'Thunderchild' ship inspired by the Lightning plane ever appear in anything? I agree it looks magnificent!

Other than the usual book and game appearances, it was briefly in FIRST CONTACT in the battle against the Borg Cube.

Added two more POPS! A "Golden Age" Wonder Woman, and Stitch (of LILO AND...) in the red police flyer he steals to get to Earth.

Must. Stop. Now.

About the Thunderchild...

Same basic configuration as the NX-01, yes? And another example of design over practicality.

Say what you will about the TOS Enterprise, it was a piece of cake to get from one part of the ship to another--mostly in straight lines. Not so much some of these later designs.

It definitely shares a lot of the same basic lines as an upside down NX-01. Which is fine, I bought it for the design, but I see your point. This kind of thing also falls under the same recent thought process that every new artist on a comic book seems to have, changing a character's costume just to put their personal stamp on it. Hey, I made a new starship!
