Details

Story

A rescue squad from Ice Planet 2002 freeing Space Police II's Solar Snooper from the ice.

Ice Planet 2002 represents a "civilian" space affiliation similar to M-Tron and led by Commander Cold. They were conducting top secret research in rocket science, which made them a target for Spyrius, Blacktron II, and even renegade forces within Space Police II.

However, mini-story included in catalogues implied they are far from helpless: Blacktron II were defeated by combined efforts of Space Police II and Ice Planet 2002 when Blacktron invaded Ice Planet without proper equipment. Next year, they helped against Spyrius.

Overall appearence

The distinctive hostile, icy setting of the ice planet Krysto meant that most of its vehicles were ground-based, and most were outfitted with the series' signature trans-neon-orange satellite dishes, skis and cockpit coverings. Many other elements were made in this colour, including helmet visors, rockets and chainsaws.

Releases

The line's larger sets were all released in the first year, with the second year's releases consisting of just two smaller sets, only one of which was genuinely new. A small promotional set, 3014 Space Diver, a reissue of an earlier set, was released in the US in 1996 and again in Japan in 1999.

Notes

  • The Ice Planet 2002 logo made a cameo appearance in the Space Police III animated short The Chase.
  • Ice Planet 2002 was the first Space theme to include a female Minifigure.
  • The theme made several appearances in LEGO Racers. There was a playable Ice Planet robot character called Roboracer, various car parts displayed the logo, minfigure parts to create Commander Cold were available, and a track was based on the sets.
  • There have been some examples of 6814 Ice Tunnelator instructions that say "Ice Galaxy 2002" instead of "Ice Planet 2002." It is unknown if this is a regional difference, as it has only appeared on the instructions for set 6814.
