Another powerful set by MB/LC, this Robotix set from the 1995 line features some very riveting parts...
This year of 1995 marked (as referred before in a previous Robotix post) the "Learning Curve" first actual move. Besides the new box design and the small modules, the "thousand" sets were the greatest fun to have with.
The basic building options for this 2000 set, some actual envisions here.
Parts and "paperwork" included. For the "Space Scout" figure review, refer to "Robotix 1996 Lunar Launcher".
The "All Terrain Crawler", the main building option for this set. This set also features the remote control (physically worthy of that title). You can observe that gray block with red switches to the right. It can also be incorporated in any Robotix construction.
4 views on the "Crawler". Here already without the wire connections. Video of movement action coming soon. The legs rotate over one another making the crawler move forward or backwards.
"Hyper Copter". Switch activates main and tail rotors.
"Creeping Cobra". This has a great looking movement. Zoid-like. Extending and contracting hence making the vehicle move.
The greatest asset of this set, as far as parts go, was the cockpit, with bubble canopies and 100% 3 3/4" compatible. The hatch between the pilots seats is simply great and you can choose making it look like a dino head or not. Very good.
Nice...if I'm not mistaken, in the Robotix animated series this is Bront of the Protectons.ReplyDelete
Yes, you are right. And originally (in the 80s) "Bront" came with the R-1500 set.ReplyDelete
I really need to by this! :)ReplyDelete
I may have it listed on eBay in a couple of weeks :)ReplyDelete
I'm slightly confused at this, perhaps you can help me! I remember getting this box-set when I was a kid (about ten or eleven), but it was in the late eighties - 1990 at latest, I would imagine. My confusion lies in the fact that this was a 1995 line. These were the exact parts, box etc that I had as a kid. Is it possible that there was an earlier release of it?
The original issues date back 1985/87, this was a re-issue from the original MB by Learning Curve. That´s why you remember them from the late 80s ;)
