In my science fiction universe, I combine elements I like into one universe. Star Wars, Starship Troopers, Lost in Space, and many others get mashed together to form what I think are more realistic situations.

Starship Troopers always seemed unrealistic to me because they ship thousands of troops to a far off planet and leave them without any ground support vehicles or artillery. By adding Star Wars elements they have those vehicles and equipment.

I have also been painting Hot Wheels and Matchbox vehicle in the same gray and black schemes as used by many Star Wars and Starship Troopers figures and vehicles to expand my range of equipment.

Then all you gotta do is add bugs and you're in business.

Thanks to PrivateSnafu for the help with images.

Avoid canon.
This way it's YOUR universe.
Good job.

I love those probe droids.

Does that mean you love being probed Dan?

Who makes the Lost in Space robot?

I got it from the UK a long time ago. It's called something the like the Robot for those who go to space and get lost.

They make a bunch of robots. I can't remember who they are.

Sorry. They also make a Robby the Robot.
