4888 Ocean Odyssey: Adventurer Fit

14 posts in this topic

We were discussing an Atlantis Adventurer theme (Adventure Sub) and talking about submarines, and it got me looking at 4888 Ocean Odyssey. This submarine would make a neat adventure sub.

Have any of you purchased this set and tried converting the sub to mini-fig scale?

I own it but parted it out... I can't picture modifying it... easier to just MOC from scratch. Especially if you want an adventurer look as the bley is really bright.

God Bless,

This already looks mini-figure scale to me! How big is it really? I'm not getting a sense of scale from looking at the pictures on the box.

A little longer than a 32 dot baseplate, but quite narrow and not very tall...

I don't own this set, but agree that it could be modded to make it minifig scale. I just don't think this looks much like an Adventurer's sub. I think something grey would fit the part much better.

It would need to be three or four times the scale to even come close to being minifig scale though...

I haven't modded it myself, but I just wanted to say that I love this set. It's the first designer set I ever picked up, and I instantly fell in love with the entire line.

Lego SAH no longer has it available in the US. Looks like a good set.

Or a very bad set which they decided to limit. :P

If you want one, you can still get it from the lego retail stores.

I think it was the lack of figs. Totally destroys playability.

Thanks for the info though. My local stores no longer carry the set. Amazon/Toys R Us has it for order though.

We don't have a Lego outlet/retail store, just TRU, Target, Walmart, etc. Most stores no longer have it.

I found some REALLY neat MOC's using just the pieces of 4888:

This is simply a brilliant set. I don't remember why I took it apart :\
