Red Lego Spaceman

Ha! All these years photographing Lego and I never knew I had one of these.

 

I went to our cellar trying to find some Lego tread bricks in an old box of Lego down there, that is a box of my Lego, not the kid's. I didn't find the treads but I found a red spaceman I never knew I had. How could I forget something like this? I have no idea.

 

I haven't looked back that much over the years, except for this photo and some old scale model things. My old toys have done their job, but I am still very happy I found this. Seeing the cracked helmet made me smile, it's like I found Benny's lost brother.

 

I just had to shoot it on a 2001-esque setup with no cleaning, dust and all, it's a document of life.

 

Oh, and there were several of those LEGO printed bricks.
