Blacktron Future Generation, also known as Blacktron 2, or simply Blacktron, was a Lego Space theme that launched 25 years ago. Back in the 80's and 90's, there were no "Star Wars" Lego sets. There was no show on Cartoon Network show starring computer animated Lego figures. The toys sold because they were cool, and there was no intergalactic faction that could ever be as cool as Blacktron.

Take a look at this render by zpaolo
Blacktron 2 Aerial Intruder by zpaolo
This is the Aerial Intruder, the largest ship in the Blacktron fleet. The bricks are all black and white, and the cockpits are a transparent neon green that glows in the sunlight. The minifigures pilot the ship from inside octagonal transparent bubbles. The resulting aesthetic is imposing, striking, as so cool that every single boy in the country breathed a breathless "wow" when he saw it in person for the first time. My Aunt Jill got me this set for Christmas, and she is still my favorite Aunt.

If you couldn't quite save up enough allowance (or didn't have a rich aunt) you might have still had the delightful space-buggy/jetpack hybrid the Grid Trekkor, or if you hit a birthday jackpot, the swooshable Allied Avenger.

Tell me about your favorite childhood toys! (or adulthood toys; whatever.)

For some reason I like to draw cute cartoon things with round eyes.
