Description

This set includes 5 minifigures, 2 large transparent green shield pieces, and a few sea animals, including sharks, octopi, and mantarays. The set contains a total of 472 pieces. The set contains 3 Hydronauts (each one equipped with flippers) and 2 Stingrays. There are two vehicles within this set, one being a large Hydronaut submersible-the other being a small Stingray scout craft. The set comes with a raised baseplate, on which the base rests. It contains many yellow and dark-grey pieces, with all of it's translucent pieces being of a dark-greenish colour. It contains many silver pieces, including silver harpoons and crystals. There are Manta Rays, Sharks, and Stingrays swimming around, while a Hydronaut vehicle guards the base. There is a hangar in the base, accessible to the Hydronauts when a button in inside the top section is pushed. There is a sneaky Stingrays scout vehicle, similar to set 6107 Recon Ray.

The Hydronauts submarine, which comes with the base, is mostly yellow in colour. It has a dark-green cockpit, with a small amount or black thrown in. It is powered by twin propellers, and on the front are dishes which could be lasers but which could also be sonar devices. It has a carrying cage for crystals. Both of the vehicles have racks for carrying flippers (for diving).

Background

The Hydro Crystalation Station is the base of the Hydronauts in the Aquazone universe. In the battle between the Hydronauts against the Stingrays, the base of the Hydronauts remains strong.

The Stingrays try to sneak in by breaking into the base. If they're caught they'll be locked in the special prison... forever? Check out the amazing features like a special suction hose, a barred door that keeps sea creatures out, a working crane, and a big expedition vessel. Includes two Stingrays and three Hydronauts.
