Alien Conquest is a subtheme of Lego Space and was first released in mid 2011.
The theme differs from other space related sets like the City Space theme and Mars Missions in that Alien Conquest is the first to introduce unfriendly Aliens to the human world.
Inspired by Science Fiction movies like Mars Attacks, Independence Day and War Of The Worlds, the sets feature an alien race bent on overtaking the Earth and a defiant band of human resistance fighters, known as the Alien Defence Unit (ADU) defending their homeland.

The Alien Conquest Lego Set Guide
Alien Conquest is a fun theme that harks to the Lego space sets of old.
All the models are solidly built and there are heaps of play features and options.
The color palette is essentially blue with accents in black, purple, gray and transparent green. Much like the Lego spacemen from the 1970s, the Alien Defence Unit figures wear colored space suits and helmets.
The minifigures are detailed in new prints and the aliens also have new head molds- including a funny, kid-friendly variation of a“face-hugger” from the ‘Aliens’ movies.
If you can afford it, we think the best set is the Earth Defence HQ with 874 pieces. It is a very solidly built set with human and alien vehicles, figures and a good mix of playable features.
The Lego site also has a range of games based around the Alien Conquest theme including a shooting challenge and Whack An Alien.
Overall Alien Conquest is a fun theme – solid enough to stand on its own, to build on the previous Lego space themes such as Mars Mission and Space Police or even to add a quirky “Out Of This World” twist on the established City themes like the Farm and Police sets.

I love this theme, but I don’t get why space police 3 had to end so early. I mean, Space police 1 was out for 10 years! Shouldn’t space police 3 be longer than 1 year?
I totally agree.
Space Police (3) was a great idea and there were some wonderful sets (Space Police Central and Galactic Enforcer were two of my favorites).
Not sure why Lego gave up on them so soon.
Space Police III is a bit ridiculous
I think it had it’s strengths (Galactic Enforcer and Space Police Central) but yes overall it was rather forgettable.
Lego really needs to rethink their Space theme – older fans would love a return to the classic style (with a modern twist of course).
