Well, as we all know, the PM site disagrees with the names given in sets, and doesn't event show two of the characters!!  :sceptic:

I love Power Miners so i want to get this cleared up, so can someone please clarify, ' which figure belongs to which name? '




Thanks.

I too have found this annoying.

I think only about four of the Miners have names, the rest are just..generic miners, I suppose.

I believe the "Geologist" guy is "Brains" (Mine Mech Pilot)

The Team Leader is...Doc...I think (Has a star on his torso, grey sleeves and yellow hands).....I think he comes in the Thunder Driller set

The "Chief Mechanic" is Rex.....that's the chap with stubble and a scar....

And the other named character is.....Duke...I believe he's the most experienced miner...or something....he's the guy who drives the Thunder Driller, and has a sort of big stubbly grey beard....thing  :sceptic:

I got all this from the current UK issue of Jetix Magazine....it has a double page spread on Power Miners, a PM poster...and best of all a free Rock Monster :D

Hope this helps!...doubt it will though..sorry

Something weird is with Rex... Double Trouble? xD
For me this names fit perfectly to these minifigs.
So we still have 2-3 "nonamers"....From Boulder Blaster,  Crystal Sweeper and from Rock Hacker...

I think those crystals let out some dubious radiation... No wonder all the characters' expressions are so funny. :tongue:

That's not stubble... it's mud... that is why there is a patch on his face that is in the shap of goggles that is mud free! :tongue: And why is rex sawing his leg off?
