Product Idea

Explorerbots

From deep underground, to the depths of the sea, to the far reaches of space, the Explorer Team pilots their Explorerbots to discover the secrets of the universe! This set includes three Explorerbots and their pilots:

The Ocean Explorer
With powerful engines and an extra air supply, this Explorerbot delves into the depths of the ocean, finding new sea life, uncovering unknown geological features, and discovering forgotten underwater kingdoms. When a hands-on approach is needed, pilot Ginger ventures out in her pressure suit, using her mini sea scooter to get around and her harpoon to fend off danger.

The Subterranean Explorer:
​With a titanium drill and powerful claw, nothing stops this Explorerbot from plumbing the furthest depths of the earth, whether in search of crystal caves, new minerals, or lost subterranean civilizations. When the going gets tough, pilot Hank isn't afraid to grab his pick and hammer and get his hands dirty.

The Space Explorer:
Armed with photon blasters and equipped with an impressive array of tools, this Explorerbot searches for new mineral resources and alien life in space. Pilot Zed can perform satellite and spaceship repairs using the Explorerbot's handy tools, or space walk with his electronic binoculars and space scanner when the need arises.

Each Explorerbot has lots of articulation, and comes with a pilot minifig, two minifig accessories, and an environmental element (octopus, boulder, or meteor) for great playability. I envision this as a set of all three Explorerbots, but they could be packaged as three different sets as well.

As the project progresses, I plan to design some additional Explorerbots as well--some possibilities:
Jungle Explorer - with a ripsaw for cutting through dense jungle and hoverfans for navigating swamps
Mountain Explorer - with extra arms or legs for difficult climbs
Weather Explorer - equipped to navigate hurricanes, typhoons and tornados

Thanks for your interest and consideration!
