BLACKTRON I

"End of line."

This lone Blacktron I LEGO minifigure (sp001) materialised in 1987, appearing in six themed sets and later in a Space Police I set.

According to lore, the Blacktron were space pirates, always stealing technology from Futuron and M:Tron whilst trying to outsmart the Space Police, his trusty steed  droid in toe.

This figure predates non-standard facial expressions by a few years so under that black helmet he’s modest little face is awkwardly smiling away. This Blacktron I pilot came with a all-black tools and accessories including helmet, visor, gloved hands, tanks, and leg assembly.

The Good

Blacktron I and Droid

In better times.

With his visor down, this Blacktron is one intimidating guy (insofar as minifigs can be intimidating!). His two-tone colour scheme is simple but striking. Unlike his Blacktron II brothers, I wouldn’t want to run into this guy down a dark, LEGO, alleyway.

The Not So Good

His good-guy face is a drawback but given his age, this is unavoidable. It is a shame that LEGO did not release other minifigure variations in this slick, dark theme.

  1. Classic Blacktron is my all-time favorite minifig. I had a ton of them from Space Police sets but I think I only had one actual Blacktron set. They should bring those guys back.

    • It would be awesome to see them back again. They are the classic space bad guys! I had one blacktron set but mostly I had the Future Gen ones which weren’t nearly as cool lol.
