Vintage Space Lego

Anders And & Co. 1979. Denmark.

Rumfart!

Stop giggling there at the back! Rumfart means ‘space exploration’ in Danish.

As some of our regular readers know, Wooof and I absolutely love space exploration. Today we look at Lego Space sets. Rumfart! From 1978 to the 1990s Lego released some amazingly cool space-exploration themed sets. TVTA has been busy navigating the far reaches of the galaxy to gather a wonderful selection of adverts for our dear readers back home on Earth to enjoy. And what a feast we have in store. Just take a look at the stunning dioramas below – in our opinion some of the best toy photography you will ever see!

We begin with adverts from the home of Lego – Denmark! As always, thanks for looking and enjoy your Rumfart! 🙂
