Another set from the Chicago-based company, this big set´s main novelties were the command centre module, the rail and light system.
A very big and heavy box, filled with space-station ambiance.
View of all included parts. Not pictured, the label sheet and spare-parts catalog.
Top line: The main building options for this set. Bottom: The alternate.
Besides the pictured light component, this set also included a "T" shaped connection for the wires. This would save a spot for the switch command. Basically, 3 engines controlled by 2 buttons.
The first vehicle building option, the "Duck Scout". For the action figure (Space Commander) review, please refer to "Robotix 1997 Laser Scanner".
A very big vehicle, his motion can be more accurately perceptible through a soon coming video. Moves its "head" left and right and also the back legs move in a linear cross-over method.
"Star Base Launch Bay". The rail provides the Command Centre a forward/backwards movement. The realistic sound this kind of engine produces, resembles "Aliens" cargo lifter.
Scale shots with a G.I.Joe RAH figure. Observe the feet pins, they fit perfectly. These "Robotix" parts make a great custom space-station for Cobra... or who knows... a place to dock the "Defiant" and "Crusader" shuttles. Not to mention S.T.A.R. Brigade...
"Mars Transporter". It´s the mid-90s... Mars popularity still there. And it´s not the chocolate nor Destro´s industries.
And the gem. I find this little part somewhat great. Not too fancy, not too much of a "brute". Simple and useful.
