Exo Suit from Peter Reid and Nabii as been revealed

It has been a long wait and finally today after a few teases it has been revealed!
Like the original it got a fair amount of Technic elements which means I might look for one to review here. Good excuse, right!?




Just don't see the need for replacing the original wheel hubs in the arms, by these ugly barrels. They seem too much away of the expected sci-fi look. Definitely I'll mod mine!

Despite the many changes proposed by Nabii (Mark Stafford) and all approved by Legoloverman (Peter Reid) the end result is pretty faithful to the original submitted at LEGO CUUSOO, now LEGO IDEAS.
There was several parts not being produced for long, several illegal techniques like clips attaching to curved bars and the general stability problem of the original model that had to be fixed but still the end result looks pretty awesome!

Was hoping for some orange space suits or the original and above all classic red, but I'm happy with green astronauts too!
Now I just wish this could mean the start of a new era into 'Classic Space' or 'Neo Classic Space' for TLG products. Even better if Mark and Peter could have main role in such quest!
