This sinister vessel comes with giant twin propellers, a turning rudder, removable conning tower, six seats inside the vessel for the brave crew, and a periscope for seeing your enemies before they see you! Help the evil Lord Ogel stalk and sink his nemesis, the Alpha Team, (plus his old foe Johnny Thunder) with his cutting edge submarine by firing torpedoes and diving deep to avoid depth charges. And when all else fails, rev up the engines to ramming speed and run through your enemies' vessels at top speed!* Remember: Run silent and Run deep! (*NOTE: Sub does not actually fire torpedoes, move under it's own power, or float on real water, though it will sink!) Builder's notes: This is a recolored Yellow Submarine model (set 23106). I lengthened and widened the sub, removed all but one periscope, added three more seats and revised the color scheme to be suitably evil and dark for Lord Ogel. I even added two huge round windows to watch the sea-life go by and let Ogel plot his next evil move. The rear of the submarine. The sub features six seats and table, plus a lift-away upper half to access the crew compartment. This submarine model will be built in real life, but I'm unsure where it fits on my to-build timeline. I will update this page when it does happen with real-world pictures! I finished putting together the Ogel Underwater Base (set 4795 from 2002) that I received from my step-father's collection with a few additions from my bins for missing parts. I misread the instructions very early on and didn't notice until it was time to join the two halves together, so I rigged the double-joint to work with my mistake. I also ran out of parts on the rear near the rear half's revolving door, so I had to modify the model a bit to make it into more of a MOD than a straight-up set. I added a ramp to get to the entrance and built a couple more figures for Ogel's Skeleton Drone army... I just need to make four more drone figures to complete the "army". I also have given Ogel his ancestor Vladek's sword from Knight's Kingdom II. Here we see the skull door in the open position. The inside still needs work, as the inside is pretty much still original to the set. I think I will put a big chair for Ogel where the skull on a pedestal is right now. Here is the story I have written so far about Ogel and how he connects to my 1920's Adventurers stuff: Born in 1893 as the last heir of the nation that bears his name, (Ogel) William Joseph Ogel was determined at an early age to rule his country with a iron fist. He became Lord (emperor, in effect) of the country in 1910 and heir to his ancestor Vladek's mysterious powers. (today we would call this physic energy "mind control") However, his control oddly ended at the border of his country. Desperate for power, he devised a scheme to amplify his powers using a strange substance known then as Ogelium to be dispersed via an unknown method. (probably via the water supply) Thankfully, World War I intervened before he could enact his plan, and he scaled back his plans until 1918, when the war ended. He had stayed out of the conflict, and secretly built up his military in the process. In 1920 he lost his left eye in a accident with a small sample of Ogelium, after which William kept the glowing ruby-red socket behind an eye-patch from then on. Determined once more to take over the world on his own terms, in 1925 he contacted Lord Sam Sinister to get him objects of great supernatural power. This eventually led him to the un-named jungle island where he and Sinister actually beat Johnny Thunder and company to the treasure at the last minute. Determined not to share the treasure with anyone, Ogel greedily double-crossed Sinister and grabbed the "treasure" for himself and his army of mind-controlled soldiers. Sam then go into a sword fight with William, which William won, but at the price of his left hand. Afterwards, it was revealed the treasure William took was fake, and than Johnny and Sam had joined forces to blow up the temple after the fight. This was done to prevent William from returning and getting the real deal. Furious, Ogel replaced his hand with one of Ogelium and permanently removed his patch so that anyone could see his scarred eye. After having lost his country during a Great Depression-era revolution (started by Lord Sam Sinister in a grab for power which cost Sam his life) Ogel retreated to his island fortress, whereupon he plotted and schemed for around 30 years to regain his evil standing with the world. By the late 1950's, he had gained the notoriety of a urban legend, a myth mothers told their children to scare them to behave. But certain world leaders knew he was real, and still alive due to an mechanical encounter suit to keep him physically fit. After firing a nuclear rocket at the moon in 1965 to announce to his demands for world conquest (or else!), he was the subject of the newly-formed Alpha Team mission, which, helped by an aged Johnny Thunder, sank Ogel and his entire military base to the deep ocean depths. In 1972, he reemerged from the depths using nuclear-mutated sea life to try to conquer the world once more, and was again stopped by Alpha Team. In 1978, he tried to freeze the world solid, in an "If I can't have it, neither can you" scenario, only to be stopped by Alpha team's leader, Agent Zed. In the process of fighting Zed, Ogel was finally defeated by destroying his encounter suit, revealing the frail, 85-year old man inside. Ogel's final act was to take a fatal does of Ogelium, killing him nearly instantly... but not before detonating a remote nuclear device, destroying Zed and much of Ogel Island. ....rumors persist, however, of a clone of Ogel running amok in the world, trying to regain his evil place in the world as late as 2009....
