So here is my first Rock raiders MOC! And some of you may ask how the heck I did come up with the ide of building Rock Raiders, the answer is pretty easy. You, I´m going to move on the 7 of September so we where cleaning the attic and my mum found my old RR game, and after some fixing I got it running on my Vista, and I was stuck. I knew from that moment that I just would have to make a RR dio and here is the first in a little series of RR dios I will make (they will not come very quick after each other due to lack of parts, and money...).

Awesome work! If have enough parts, you should definitely make a multi-level cave.

This is an interesting MOC. I LOVE the cave :classic: ! What minifigs did you use to make the characters?

Two things:

1: Doesn't this belong in the SciFi forum?
2: I've just built some Rock Raider MOCs myself, nice to know I'm not the only one building with RR.

Overall, I love the MOC, although the cave seems to be a little too low for the vehicle (probably the Chrome Crusher by the looks of it) to pas through.

1: I wasen´t sure myself but after looking throught the themes I discovered that this was counted as an action theme so I guess it belong here.
2: Will you be posting any of them here?
The cave is a bit higher in the middle and it is pssobile to get the Chrome Chrusher in rom the back, but I got a bit tired of it so after 15 mintues
of failing I simply took of the laser Posted Image

I just wish I had the parts to make a rock background for it like you did. Any suggestions for low-part alternatives?

The idea of Rock Raiders was great, but I think the theme suffered of the juniorization (big pieces, less detail), something very common that time. I think the colours were great, and I like the minifigs. As far as my knowledge goes, none of the sets contained stickers, all were printed pieces. A big advantage to me.

Nice idea to use official sets in a diorama you designed by yourself. Nice pictures as well. I think the mix of old and new gray adds realism.  :thumbup:

It's multifunctionomical.

It's remarkable how the big pieces argument, while true, contrasts with the amount of small parts used for detail.

Hmm, I think you would use the big finished mountin-parts, and just cover the visible studs up with for example cheese slopes and some 1x2 slopes.

Thanks for the advice! I might decide to do a variation, as I have a lot of the lava-version of that piece.

A combo with ordinary 75 degreese slopes and pre-fab mountain pieces sounds awesome!
You deffently have to try that out!

Very nice, I dreamt of something like that when I had my first Rock Raiders set  :laugh:
only it was brown (to match the builders and rock monster). Great job  :thumbup:

Wow, impressive! There was a time a few years ago when I rediscovered the RR game, too, and all I could think of for the next couple of months was how sad I was to have missed out on that line; Power Miners, like any remake theme, was of little consolation to me. =J

I'd still have liked to have had some Rock Raiders sets, though. =)
