Classic Space is not an official theme in the strict sense but rather a term that refers to the Space sets that were released before 1987 and shared some common characteristics that set them apart from the following Space sets. Most importantly, all Classic Space minifigures featured the old visorless helmets that were eventually ditched in favor of newer helmets with movable visors in 1987. There were also no truly different factions as in the time after 1987. All astronauts of Classic Space were peaceful explorers and there were no antagonist groups. Several Town minifigures had the classic space logo on their shirt.
