  1. Set name: Lobster Strike Theme: Aqua Raiders Set number: 7772 Number of pieces: 223 Minifigs: 2 Released: 24 Oct 2007 - 11 Sep 2008 Release price: $19.99, €14.99 Current price: New: $16.92 Used: $11.75 Peeron Brickset Bricklink Brickshelf Folder Hello! For my first review of the academy I decided to do 7772 Lobster Strike. The set was from the theme Aqua Raiders. It was a good theme, but most of the sets appeared on clearance shelfs faster than you can say supercalifragilisticexpialidocioux, and TLC finally decided to end the theme. It was a real pity. I thought it was going to turn out to be a great theme....guess not. Since they got rid of Aqua Raiders we, AFLOS and TFOLS, need a new Ocean/Underwater theme! Anyways, back to the review, so all in all this is a good set with minor faults. Now....onto the review! Box-Front: Image from LEGO. Box-Back: The back shows the movement of the Lobster and the vehicle. It also shows the entire Aqua Raider sets and information about lobsters. Instructions-Front: The instructions show the entire set. Instructions-Middle: Instructions-Back: Shows the entire Aqua Raiders collection minus 7776 Ship Wreck. Minifigures-Front: The torsos are nicely detailed. The heads are common pieces. Minifigures-Back: Printed on the back. Nice Aqua Raiders design. Accessories: Two rare trans-blue crystals, an Aqua Raiders helmet, black hat, oxygen tank, flippers, and a harpoon gun. Vehicles-Rover: This is the rover. It has some faults, but I'll get to that later. I like the yellow and black color scheme. It fits in nicely with the theme. The saw spins, but you have to do it manually. It also has a claw to pick up the diamonds and an opening glass window. Another view of the rover. Lobster: The lobster is horrible, IMHO. The legs are unstable, but I'll get to that later. The black and red fits in nicely. It is oddly larger than a normal lobster would be. The claws can be closed and opened. The legs can also move. So do the arms and the tail. Another view of the lobster. Complete set: Here you can see the entire set with the minifigures and accessories. Faults: Here you can see the rover, but it isn't airtight. The glass can't open because the guns are blocking it from opening. To open it you have to spin the gun around and open it. The legs are horrific, because they are so unstable and keep falling off. This becomes very frustrating at times. Conclusion: This set is ok, but it has a couple of faults. It should have been cheaper and if TLC would have taken more time to design it, it could have been a great set. Build: 9/10, It has an interesting build and it took me 20-40 minutes to build this. Design: 6/10, The set was designed poorly, but nevertheless it is still an ok set. Playbillity: 8/10, The set can be fun to play with. Many scenarios are possible. Minifigs: 10/10, Two minifigs is a good amount for a set like this. Price: 6/10, It would have been better if the price was $14.99. Overall Score: 7/10, It could have been designed better and the price should have been $14.99. This is what happens when dwarves are alerted of new areas to mine..... Now.....for a little extra: In the dark, dark ocean a rover and 2 divers are digging for crystals..... Eeeek! What the hell was that? Nothing.....It was probably just the rover. Yeah, I guess your right..... Eeeeeeek! There it is again! Out of the water imerges a giant lobster! Oh shit! It doesn't look too happy.... Ya think!?! Aim the harpoon gun! Got it! Fire! It jammed! Turn the rover around! Call in backup! The radio isn't working! Crunch! The rover has been smashed... What in the world!?! Where'd you go? Hello? Will they survive.......find out next week in the new hit series, Aqua Raiders!

  4. I asked him about that, and he said that it was simply some misunderstandings and that's what it seems like from the negative feedback comments. I'm interested in the 2009-era Pirate lot he has listed!

  15. Hello! Just wanted to stop by and say that I am so glad these RPG's are still around. I remember when they were first created and brought here; I played in the first few games. Does anyone know if Hinckley is still hosting any games? He was fantastic at it!

    Check this out

    That is absolutely stunning! The price is quite high. I always preferred building the set myself as that is always the most fun part, but some people prefer models I suppose.
