- The Wrecker
The heavily armored Wrecker space truck is a normal flying cargo truck that has been heavily vandalized and modified by presumably the Black Hole Gang. It features a black cab with 3 front spikes and twin lasers. The engine cover features the Black Hole Gang insignia which appears to be scratched on. There are two rear-view mirrors as well as two light gray smokestacks made up of Part 55981. The top of the cabin must be lifted off in order to seat Snake inside. A dark grey 30104 chain connects the cab to the cargo box.
Most of the Wrecker's size is due to the yellow cargo box in the rear. The cargo container is mostly covered by graffiti stickers and opens up to contain a Space Police laser. The laser is able to move thanks to a pin connection and can also swivel 360 degrees. Inside the container is also a small 2x2 control panel sticker detail meant to be used to control the laser.
The Wrecker sports twin thrusters on its sides that each have a 85959 flame piece used to represent the truck's exhaust.
The sets contains two minifigures, Snake (with black visor) and a Space Police III Officer with black airtanks and a double-sided head (one side with a confident smile, one side with a panicked expression).
- This set was originally scheduled for release in August 2009, but was released early in May of the same year.
- The word "Blacktron" can be seen on the crates, written in graffiti.
- Among the graffiti is the signature of 'Adam G.', who made the sketch models of this set. Adam G. also referenced himself as MisterZumbi, which is referenced in the 5973 Hyperspeed Pursuit.
- Behind the graffiti are the original markings of the container, which include a Classic Space logo.
- This set is included in the Product Collection set 2853300 Space Police Collection.
