    Description

    This is a small submarine with a grasping claw.

    Impression

    Ratings

    Set Rating:Must-Have

    Model Rating:Excellent

    This is a small set and took less than five minutes to assemble. It has some very ingenuous use of elements.

    Playability Rating:Fair

    The jets tended to fall off due to their being attached by the lattice side of the fence pieces. The grasping claw was not flexible enough.

    Likes/Dislikes

    Like the special elements. Dislike high price per piece.

    Elements

    Practically every piece in this nice little set is special. There are two yellow pieces (#6042) which are more-or-less a 2x2x3 octagonal column. However, one side (as you look at the piece in a vertical position) is extended so that the piece has pegs so that the piece can attach in a horizontal position to the corresponding holes of another piece. This prevents the element from being placed flush against a wall as a column. In this set, of course, it is used as the main part of a propelling jet.

    There is also an octagonal canopy, like the white ones in "Knight's Challenge". Here it is a beautiful translucent blue. There are also two yellow octagonal cones (2x2x2), a translucent orange propeller, three black 1x1x4 lattice fences, a decorated 2x2 round tile, two chrome knives, and the grasping claw parts.

    The minifig has the red headband and freckles, and an elaborate diving helmet. There are also two blue flippers for him/her.

    The blue canopy is destined to be part of a theatre lobby expresso stand.
