Aqua Raiders was one of LEGO's new themes for 2006. The theme comprised of seven sets, ranging from a small Deep Sea Treasure Hunter to a much larger Aqua Base. It ran for one year.

Description[edit]

7776 The Shipwreck was reminiscent of the older Divers sets.

Aqua Raiders was one of a handful of underwater themes to appear since 1995 when Aquazone was introduced. While Aquazone's submarines, vehicles, and equipment were generally futuristic, Aqua Raiders closer resembles the 1997 Divers subtheme of Town, as both feature more realistic designs and human explorers searching for treasure.

The background story revealed that the theme is set in the Bermuda Triangle, where the divers utilized high-tech submarines and other special equipment to look for the lost treasure of an ancient king. While submerged, the divers encountered and battled sea creatures of monstrous proportions, a theme first explored in Alpha Team: Mission Deep Sea.

Most of the sets followed a common scheme. They contained the Aqua Raiders with a yellow vessel of some kind, a segment of seafloor where a treasure was hidden and also a monstrous sea creature that stood between the divers and their loot.

After Aqua Raiders was retired after a one year run, another underwater action theme did not appear until 2010's Atlantis. Atlantis included a couple of nods to it's predecessor with a skeleton wearing an Aqua Raiders' helmet appeared in 8078 Portal of Atlantis and in "The Atlantis Movie," a team of divers are on a mission to salvage a sub that turns out to be 7774 Crab Crusher.

Vehicles and equipment[edit]

The Aqua Raiders have a variety of weapons and vehicles, which, according to the Aqua Raiders website, is the latest technology developed for underwater exploration.

Some of the subs were reminiscent of older LEGO vessels. Among them were two mini-submarines (included in 7775 Aquabase Invasion and 7776 The Shipwreck), which were slightly similar to the subs from Divers, a large submarine which essentially resembled a Creator set but had a more spacious and detailed interior, and a sleek combat-submarine, which shared some design traits with the subs from Alpha Team Mission Deep Sea. The complement of vehicles also comprised an underwater rover with robot arms and several scooters.

The diving gear (helmets, scuba-tanks and flippers) was the same that already appeared in Divers ten years earlier, with different colours. The same applies to the handheld harpoon guns. The subs and the base were equipped with spring-loaded guns that shot rubber-tipped projectiles.

All seven regular Aqua Raiders sets.

The Aqua Raiders minifigures used unique torso pieces that were printed on both the front and the back. They also had black helmets printed with a blue trident on the top. There were four different heads used for the minifigs, and all of them had already appeared in earlier themes, such as Mars Mission.
