Exploriens was a subtheme of LEGO Space and was introduced in the year 1996 and discontinued in 1997.

Description[edit]

The logo of the Exploriens as seen on their vehicles and uniforms.

Returning to the clean white and transparent blue cockpits of Futuron (as well as their civilian role), Exploriens sets are known for their use of large, open structures and special image elements (e.g., as foil-holograph stickers for view screens). The Exploriens were searching, evidently, for fossils in the form of flat plates that contained triple images: one in white, for the naked eye; one in blue, for viewing under transparent red scanners; and one in red, for viewing under transparent blue scanners.

It was the second Space theme to include a robot Minifigure, and was also the second Space theme to include a female minifigure, a robot named Ann Droid. Popular Exploriens vehicles include 6938 Scorpion Detector and their largest spaceship, the 6982 Explorien Starship (both 1996). The base was 6958 Android Base (1996). A mini-base, 6899 Nebula Outpost (1996), was also included. The theme was only short-lived, with almost all of the themes sets and merchandise being released in only the single year, 1996. The only product released the following year (in 1997) was 1130 LEGO Explorien T-Shirt.

Background[edit]

The eponymous Exploriens were a group of civilian space explorers.

Notes[edit]

  • In LEGO Racers, one of the race-tracks on the 1st and 4th circuits is an Exploriens one, named "Magma Moon Marathon", and the starter parts for building your car include Exploriens parts. Ann Droid and Nova Hunter are both CPU opponents.
  • In LEGO Universe, one of the kits exclusive to Crux Prime is the "Explorien Bot" kit, which consists of Ann Droid's legs, torso (with printings on both the front and back) and 1x1 round yellow transparent "light" hat that changes walking animations to a robotic style. The pants are awarded in a Crux Prime achievement.
