2058 : Mankind has begun colonizing Mars, and is regularly sending equipment from Earth to explore the red planet. The Mobile Autonomous Research Station (MARS) is a mobile laboratory designed to collect and analyze samples of martian rocks, as well as provide shelter to three scientists. It is equipped with a digging arm, powerful front lights, communication devices (antenna and parabolic antenna) and solar panels, which help providing energy to the station.

This creation has several play features, like a foldable ladder, an articulated digging arm with a drill and a grabber to collect samples (which can easily be detached from the ground), and a mobile antenna. It is made of 144 parts.
