Futuron was a subtheme of LEGO theme Space in the years 1987 till 1990.

Taking over from Classic Space and inheriting its white-and-blue color scheme, "Futuron" depicted an austere yet bustling settlement on the surface of a planetary body, probably Earth's moon. Its minifigs came in many colors (red, blue, yellow and black), but all shared the same uniform—a zipper crossing from hip to shoulder, with color on top and white below—as well as light-blue-tinted helmet visors. Instead of a big ship, the theme centered around the Monorail Transport System, which featured a battery-powered train system and some twenty linear feet of track.

Brick-in-mm.jpg

A brick is a general term for any LEGO part. However, technically it is an element three plates or more thick, rectangular in shape, with studs on top. They often have stickers or printing on them, like many other LEGO elements. They come in many sizes, from a tiny 1x1 brick to a huge 8x8, or maybe a 1x16.

Sizes[edit]

Bricks are referred to by their dimensions. When they are only three plates high, they can be referred to as, say a 2x2 brick. If they are taller, then a third number is added, referring to their height. An example is the 1x2x5 brick.

Interestingly enough, the only odd-number-sized bricks are the 1x and 3x sizes. All sizes above are even.

It is controled by a pump that you press down on. This pumps air trough a rubber 'pipe' and can do several things. One thing it can do is move ir through the weapons to fire them up to 3 meters away. Another thing that you can to with it is putting aliens in it. Put an alien in it and it gets sucked up. Turn the pump and it gets shot out in a differnt direction. This is one of the neat features of Mars Mission.

Pirates 2009 logo.JPG

Pirates was a LEGO System theme introduced in 1989. It was the first completely new theme that appeared after the three initially introduced main themes Town, Castle and Space from 1978. It focussed on the classic idea of caribbean pirates that were pitted against soldiers of colonial empires and would occasionally encounter indigenous people. During its initial run from 1989 to 1997, the theme saw continous releases in every year. While the pirate faction remained largely unchanged, their imperial adversaries were subject to various visual changes.

The theme was the first to feature LEGO versions of firearms and introduced the first minifigures without the standard smiley-faces as well as specific elements for the construction of large sailing ship models, which were one of the outstanding features of Pirates.

Following a long hiatus starting in 1997, the theme was reintroduced in 2009, combining the established look from the past with recent LEGO elements and building styles.

6986 Box.jpg
6986 Mission Commander is a Space Police I set released in 1989. It contains a large Space Police starship, a small truck, two Space Police I red-neon jail cells and two small spacecrafts. It also contained two Space Police Officers and a Blacktron prisoner.

When released, the small truck can be used to transport the jail cells. The top of the cockpit may open or close to insert or take out one Minifigure. On either side of the cockpit is a pair of laser cannons. There are two more lasers on the front of the starship. Behind the cockpit section is a transparent-red area. This does not seem to have any particular purpose, however. This section is Black and Blue with a large amount of transparent-red.

8097BobaFett.jpg

Boba Fett is a LEGO minifigure based on the character from the Star Wars movies with the same name. Initially released in the year 2000, Fett has appeared in a total of five distinct standard variations across eight sets, with two other promotional variants.

Boba Fett's first appearance was in the 7144 Slave I in 2000, and shortly after in the 3341 Star Wars #2. This form of Fett displayed his green Mandalorian armor on his torso piece, with light gray arms and dark gray hands. His leg piece was light gray and brown, and his head piece was black with no face. Fett's Mandalorian armor was completed with his helmet and jetpack, which was one piece. Instead of the helmet having the T-shaped visor printed on, the visor section was made into a gap, relying on Fett's black head piece to give the appearance of the helmet having a black visor, in a similar way to how Scout Trooper helmets are designed. The front of the helmet had printing on it around the visor section, as well as two black triangles above the visor and yellow rectangles on the top left-hand side. For the three sets in which this variant was released (the third set being in 4476 Jabba's Prize released in 2003), Fett came with one weapon- a black gun.

BIONICLE Logo 01-1-.png

BIONICLE was a series of sets sold by the LEGO Company from 2001 to 2010. It is usually attributed to the LEGO TECHNIC line due to the inclusion of TECHNIC-specific elements and building-styles although being a largely independent product series. The sets were tied together by an elaborate original storyline that centred around bio-mechanical characters such as the Toa, which are generally large, powerful beings that usually serve good. The evil Makuta, which are servants of Makuta Teridax himself fight against the Toa. The story stresses the Three Virtues: Unity, Duty, and Destiny.

The name "BIONICLE" is short for Biological Chronicle (A common misconception is that it stands for Biomechanical Chronicle. Another misconception is that the word is derived from Bionic with a -le suffix).

Although being another complete redesign of the Slave I, the model carries over many of the features from the most recent previous release of the set, the 2006 6209 Slave I. One of the most notable features of the Slave I is the fact that the wings rotate with gravity. When the ship is picked up, or placed in a sort of "flight mode", the wings rotate with to keep level with the ground as much as possible. Along the lines of the rotating wings, is the interesting design of the ship, giving it the ability to land flat on the bottom, but take off and fly at a 90 degree angle with the base pointing outwards.

BIONICLE (a portmanteau created from the words "biological" and "chronicle") was a constraction theme with a series of sets using TECHNIC pieces alongside ball and socket joints and a variety of specialized parts to depict the masks and armour worn by various characters and creatures. Aside from being LEGO's first full fledged exploration of the possibilities of buildable action figures, BIONICLE is also notorious among the LEGO community for its overarching and complex story, especially compared to the vague backgrounds for a handful of characters and a couple of tie-in comics in LEGO Magazine most themes are relegated to. The theme was introduced in 2001 where it introduces the Toa Mata to the mysterious island of Mata Nui. BIONICLE concluded in 2010 with the BIONICLE Stars featuring characters and creatures which had appeared in the theme's assorted arcs. BIONICLE will return to production in 2015 after a hiatus of four and a half years.
