REVIEW: 6599 Shark Attack
Posted 21 September 2008 - 07:14 PM
Divers Shark Attack
Set #: 6599
Year Released: 1997
Piece Count: 55
List Price: $10
In 1997, Lego introduced a new aquatic theme called DIVERS. The theme included simple but nice brick-built ships, shark cages, underwater reefs, submarines, and sharks.
I picked up a few of these sets back in the late 90s including this bonus pack (my first Divers set review) known as SHARK ATTACK.
Here's a picture of the box that looked pretty slick with the submarine and sharks:
Back of box:
Here's the instructions:
And the back of the instructions:
The set includes a decal sheet with some stickers for the submarine:
The set includes two figs; one submarine crewman, and one diver:
Also included are some accessories: speargun, flippers, and an oxygen tank:
The sub is a one-man mini-sub but nicely detailed and great for lowering down off a small ship:
Details included a large white camera piece:
Here's the sub with a fig inside:
And the tail end:
Three sharks are included within this set; a sawtooth, great white, and regular grey shark:
The complete Shark Attack set:
Divers was a great theme, and I regret not buying a few more sets when available in the late 90s.
Hope you enjoy this review. I've got a few more Diver reviews coming soon...

Divers was a great theme. Somehow it just seemed to stand out amongst the other water themes like aqua sharks, aquanauts, and aqua raiders.

With these sharks, it is great addition for Aqua Raiders, Divers, Beach, and even Pirates. For a small set which include 3 aquatic creatures, it comes with 2 minifigs and a mini submarine. What more could you ask for? The mini submarine is well designed, especially taking its air tight cockpit design consideration and its tail ends. This is a lovely design with great appeal for any divers collectors.
Overall, a great set with an affordable price. Well done Brickster! I have to give this a "5".
By the way, did you left out the set number on purpose?

This is a really nice small set. It's great that for such a low price it includes 3 different sharks and 2 figs.
The little underwater craft is simple but looks very nice as well. It uses that bubble windscreen really nicely.
I have to give this a 5.

I voted for Outstanding since this set is - well - outstanding.
I really the whole theme. Like Arctic it was a great theme with nice locations, perfectly designed vehicles, nice minifigs, a lot of accessory and no fantasy stuff. Regrettably I only own one very little set.
