Love these little sets. For a buck, what a deal!

Amazing how a coherent and adorable set can be constructed out of 21 pieces costing less than a dollar.

Ah, it was only $0.99? I've got no idea where most of my sets came from in the early 80s, and whenever I build this one I wonder what the story was. A great set for space parts, but gets dwarfed these days.

So awesome, so cute! Lego, can you bring back small cute sci-fi/space sets like this again?

Holy crap, this was a dollar. It is very cute, though.

I LOVED this set. I had a bunch of the smaller SPACE sets as a kid, but this one had a little corner of my heart all to itself. It was just so fun!

Although as cheap as chips, I remember this very fondly from my Space collection. Loved the blue strut on the front and the rocket and boosters towards the back. A fantastic little set.

1$ in 1984 equals 2.5$ today. And for exactly this much you can buy Lego magazines with small sets. I just bought this one: https://brickset.com/sets/CITY951807-1/Race-Car
Obviously there is no classic space magazine, but starwars one is present.

A perfect little peice of Classic Space goodness, a nice white minifig with an unspolit logo on a jet powered moon rover - perfection and for only $0.99 at the time a steal!

Wow!
I’d completely forgotten that I owned this set as a kid, until I saw it.
Classic Space at its best.

I have this in my Classic Space collection! A Very cute set. It's up there with my other favourites, the Buggy (886) and the Scooter (885). Childhood happiness!

This was my first (or maybe 2nd) LEGO set! My parents got it for me when I was 4, probably not realizing what they were starting. Lots of great memories of those old sets.

Aww, i'n'it just the cutest little space set ever. Always happy to see Classic Space make the news feed!

Small Space sets are the best small sets, and perhaps the best Space sets! Their so adorable and playable, their pieces are surprisingly versitile, and they greatly enhance any display. Just the other day I got a package of 3 late 90's/early 2000's pollybags 'cause their just so cute.

Got it as a four-year-old from the shop in Legoland/Billund in 1984. I remember I pestered my parents to get a bigger space set from the packed shelves (probably 6871 or 6881) but that was all I ended up with.
