I got an awesome lego book for christmas that has lego's entire history in it. One of the pages had the story of the rock raiders. This was my favorite theme when it was available. So, i decided to start my own theme based on the rock raiders. This is just the beginning.
About this creation
Here is the transport.
Here is the mining laser that is towed behind the transport.
The roof of the transport.
Here is the interior of the bridge of the transport. There is a navigator, a pilot, and a communication specialist. The bridge also seats all of the miners.
Here is the rear hatch of the transport.
And the lower crew area. In all, the transport can carry 24 minifigs when everone is sitting and many more if you have people standing as well.
Here is the control station on the laser. This station manages power and moving the laser.
laser. The laser operator is in complete control of the laser. He can fire the laser and spin it around 360 degrees.
This is the power amplifier module. It increases the intensity of the power being shot throught through the laser.
This is a base camp. It has shipping containers filled with different types of power crystals.
Here is a small digger unit.
And another small digger that has three legs instead of wheels.
Here is half of the crew.
And here is the other half of the crew. You will probably get to know the crew a bit better because i'm going to continue this theme. Something to look forward to :)
Aah... Rock Raiders... shame I wasn't old enought to apreciate them while they were around... Nice MOC, although the transport would look a little better with more wheels in the tracks. But the little digger mech is very well built, and kind of cute=D
