Toys: Classic LEGO Space

In 1978, LEGO first started producing space-themed playsets, and so what is today known as "Classic LEGO Space" was born. Stretching for a good decade from 1978 to 1988, this LEGO theme was a Twenty Minutes into the Future type of adventure dealing with very simple exploration of the solar system, establishing moon bases and conducting research on the planets.
