EXO-PLANET KRYOS by ModularSculptr

THE STORY:

After creating a makeshift research base on Planet Kryos from their disabled spaceship, human explorers soon discover they are unintentional invaders of an inhabited planet.  Life, it seems, evolved underground in a layer of water between the hot core and the frozen crust.  KryoSpiders, the dominant life form, eventually tunneled to the surface and built a civilization housed in cities of obsidian that absorb maximum amounts of solar radiation.  How will they react when they find not only a previously undiscovered continent, but that it is occupied by a dozen alien survivors?

THE BUILD:

A hollow spherical shell mounted to a structural core comes alive with miniature vehicles, bases, minifigures and even a small moon.  Both eastern and western hemispheres swing open from the core to reveal interior space.  The shell is composed of eight equatorial hinged ribs with wing-plate extensions which complete the spherical configuration.  Inside, the miniature models and minifigures can be stored until playtime.  Outside, surface details such as transparent oceans, icy windstorms, glaciers, snow-capped mountain ranges, icebergs, frontier bases and native cities are ready to be explored and studied.

THE PRODUCT:

Given the exciting astronomical discoveries of numerous planets beyond our solar system, there is again global interest in space, especially amoung the active imaginations of youth.  Thus, Exo-Planet Kryos is not merely a hollow shell or static statue but an interactive play-set that can stand alone in crystalline beauty or serve as the crown-jewel of any space-themed collection, LEGO or otherwise.  As shown, the model is roughly 150cm/ 6 inches/ 18 studs in diameter and is comprised of 602 elements.  However given the random nature of planetary formation, builders should be encouraged to rearrange geographical land-forms beyond the standard instructions and personalize the planet to their satisfaction.  Thus, Exo-Planet Kryos should make for an exciting play-set for kids and adults seeking nostalgia or rare parts alike and for a moderate price.
