Customs Article

This article describes a custom creation, custom theme, or other fan material, made by a Brickipedia contributor. It has never been, is not, and will not be officially released.

The Space Scuttler is a custom set made by Jeyo on January 25, 2013. It is an alternate model of 70700 Space Swarmer and only uses parts from the set.

Designer's Thoughts

I was a little disappointed with the Space Swarmer when I bought it. Mainly because it felt incomplete, especially on the sides (in a place that doesn't show up on the official images, strangely). So I decided to redesign it, using only pieces from the set, no more. I first came out with the Asteroid Crawler, which I think turned out quite well. Then, a few days later, I dismantled and rebuilt it into this; The Space Scuttler! Unlike the Asteroid Crawler, which was taller than it was wide or long, the Scuttler is pretty low to the ground. I really like how it turned out, more so than the Crawler.

The robot's speeder consists of six pieces, the leftovers that I thought I wouldn't be able to use. Without the robot and his blasters, it really looks pathetic. But with the robot, it's acceptable. That's why there aren't any pictures of just the speeder. ;)

Promotional Background

The evil Alien Buggoid in his Space Scuttler has caught the Galaxy Squad's robot on a scout mission and moves in for an ambush. With its glider wings, razor-sharp blades and twin-barreled pulse blaster, the sneaky scuttler is sure to make short work of its adversary! But the robot, with its twin blasters and armoured speeder, will not so easily succumb. Who will be the victor?

Asteroid Crawler features include:

  • Moveable legs!
  • Opening cockpit!
  • Adjustable wings!
