I've been in the process of gathering some TECHNIC figure parts just for fun over the past month. I was able to get my paws on the "Monster Crab Clash"; Atlantis set from Don Wilson (The Pale Man) and thought it would be fun to cobmine some parts - the new Atlantis helmet and TECHNIC parts - to create a diver minifigure.
Please note - ALL PARTS ARE OFFICIAL (just to settle those "those aren't LEGO parts!" claims right off the bat. ;-)) The scuba mask, visors on the waist and feet are TECHNIC, the helmet is from the new Atlantis line and flashlight is made of a suction cup from the trans-green gun from the original Aquazone line.
Cool diver. How did you get those pieces when the Atlantis sersies doesn't launch untill Jan '10? From what i've seen of the pics the Atlantis sets are really lame. I think Lego is dumbing down their Legos more and more it seems.
I just got the Bionicle set "Skopio XV1" and that's PACKED with technic pieces. Plus it's got a lot of red, so it might help in your quest to get Atlantis parts (if I remember right, the humans in the sets drive red vehicles). Love what you've done here, especially the flippers.
Thanks for the feedback guys.
I am the general public. ;-) I bought them from someone who bought them at Toys R Us .com before they stopped shipping them [I guess a few leaked out accidently.] There isn't a secret LEGO employee feeding me new sets (unfortunately!) ;-)
