Galaxy Squad is a Space theme first officially released in January 2013. However, several of the sets were unofficially released prematurely in Canada and the United States of America in November/December 2012. This theme is not available in some parts of Europe.[source?] The last new set to be released was in a wave in the second half of 2013, but was not officially discontinued until 2015.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

The theme features a group of humans and their robotic sidekicks defending planets from an impending invasion by seemingly malignant alien "bugs", which resemble anthropomorphic insects.

The humans and robots are split into different "teams" or "squads", distinguished by the designated colour of their minifigure printings and vehicles, as well as a unique insignia. These teams are as followed: Blue Team, Red Team, Green Team, and Orange Team. Each team consists of one robotic sidekick and one or two humans. Their vehicles are mainly white, with certain detailing sharing the respective team's colour.

The main colour schemes in this theme are spread out due to the different squads, but all four teams consist of white, grey, and a darker version of their base colour, such as Earth Blue for the Blue Team, as shown in 70701 Swarm Interceptor, and Earth Green in the set 70704 Vermin Vaporiser, based for the Green Team.

A well-known Mosquitoid vehicle, the Warp Stinger.

The Bug colours are mainly dark grey, lime green, and dark red, despite their exoskeleton colours being Olive Green. The aliens consist of Mosquitoids and Buggoids (the latter of which has a red as well as green variant). The Bugs are known to be primarily based off Earth insects, hence the names, and their vehicles which are animal hybrids, such as the 70702 Warp Stinger.

In addition, the Galaxy Squad website has also uploaded several online games such as Bug Battle, Hive Invasion, and Cocoon Crusher 9000.

Background[edit | edit source]

A mysterious race of evil alien Bugs are swarming across the galaxy, capturing civilians in cocoons and turning one planet after another into a Buggoid hive. There's only one force that can stop them: the ultra-elite Galaxy Squad. The Galaxy Squad is a section of the space military, equipped especially for fighting alien Bug menaces.

Team Traits[edit | edit source]

Each team has a different strength:
Green Team: Green Team's primary skill is defence and heavy artillery.
Red Team: Red Team's expertise is speed.
Orange Team: Orange Team's main tactic is firepower.
Blue Team: Blue Team's skill is strategy and technology. Out of all the teams, it is said that they have the best tech.
