Explorer MRR (Mars Research Rocket)

Blast off to Mars with the Explorer MMR.
Stage One has an opening cockpit that holds a minifigure and a stage connector.
Stage Two, with a inside out click hinge construction, is detachable and will become the minifigure's base on Mars. Inside the base are the computers where research data is relayed back to Earth.
Stage Three holds the boosters that is fully protected by an asteroid shield.
All three stages of the Explorer MMR are reconfigurable so that they may complete their mission which is to:
Reach Mars, leave a base behind to research how plant life will grow, and then return back to the Moon.
