Island Turtle

Sailors have told stories of finding an island paradise that is not located on any known map.  After discovering the island, they leave to tell others about the island they found; however, when they try to return to the island, the island has mysteriously vanished without a trace.  That is because it was not an ordinary island, but an Island Turtle!

An Island Turtle is a massive sea turtle with different kinds of terrain on its back.  Sometimes it can be plant life with animals living off of the back of its shell.  Other times it can be a desert island or even an island with a large mountain.  Most of the time, only the top of its shell floats above the water so no one sees the actual turtle underneath.  It never completely submerges underwater, thus allowing any plants and animals that grow on its shell to live.  There are even some reports of the Island Turtle being able to use its massive flippers for flight, thus becoming a floating island as well.

This set has a movable head with a mouth that opens.  All four flippers and its tail also moves. The top of the shell has sand red LEGO pieces around the edges to represent the beach and to show how far the Island Turtle submerges underwater to hide its body.

I designed this set based off a couple of stories I read about vanishing islands.  I think people will enjoy this set because they can imagine their own stories about vanishing islands using this set and different adventures on how to find out where the island has gone.
