Thunder Is back! Join Johnny and his daring team: Pippin Reed, Dr.
Kilroy, quartermaster Captain Singh, and faithful assistant Hershey, as
they embark on an adventurous expedition around the globe in their
will their adventures take them? The dunes of Egypt? The great
Serengeti? The jungles of India? The Australian outback? The mysterious
Himalayas? The lost cities of South America? The frozen northern tundra
forests? Maybe all of these destinations and many more!
set was inspired by the classic car designs of LEGO’s Adventurers line.
When Adventurers first released (1998) I designed and played with many
car variations using the new pieces created for these sets. The
imagination never stops, and recently it was time to try again!
centerpieces of this set are the two all-terrain rovers. Rover 1 (Ö7)
is beige/tan, open-topped, and seats three. It is the recon rover, and
Johnny's personal car. Rover 2 (A8) is sand green, close-topped and
seats two. It is the equipment and baggage rover, and is usually driven
by the team's quartermaster, Captain Singh, or by Hershey. The aim with
this build was to create high-end and highly detailed play vehicles that
reference the original Adventurers vehicles but introduce something
new. The two rovers make this a "mobile" play set that invites the
imagination to explore many different destinations. This is primarily a
play set, but could also appeal to auto enthusiasts, Adventurers fans,
The set now also includes the Cairo Headquarters for the Adventurers, including a loaded out supply garage, Shell petrol pump station, office, barracks and small treasure gallery. And a rooftop terrace for celebrating successful expeditions.
Of course, Johnny Thunder and crew are great LEGO personalities and
favorites of many. It is fun to see them make a return, and to see them
with some updated gear, and still sporting their classic looks (like the
folded fedora and the pith helmet).
