3283 Alien Prison Pod
« on: May 02, 2010, 06:41:00 »
Hello all,

Bill encouraged me to get this set so that I could use it in a playmobil Star Trek project!!
I have to say that i had no regard for this space theme whatsoever...It was so alien to me...
But now I have to say that some of the sets do look like the alien environments used in the Original Star Trek series.

Well, here is an overall picture of the set and its box...


The prison pod is actually a holding cell that can close and open like one of them killer flowers .. it actually reminded me of a Poison Ivy flower from Batman...




The mecanism is simple...you see that green leaffy tongue in front and below of the yellow holding cell?? Its other side ends at the back of the cell and slides back and forth opening and closing the cell!!!

The alien guards are awesome too!!!


They are actually playmobil kids repainted...they actually look like the short scavanger aliens in Star Wars, the ones with the hoods and the glowing eyes...

Playmobil used the cloaks from the dwarf gift sets form them and a similar klicky version can be found in 5741 Golden Sword Guardian.... Although the short guy there does not look like this one here...

Great review Wolf Knight :)9

Never really looked at this set before but I don't think it is really my cup of tea - those alien guards look very scary :0

I do like the look of the flowers and grass though, and the way the big flower type pod closes is quite cool 8-)

Thanks for a great review Panos,  :clap: Junior has this set but I must admit I had never really taken much notice of it, but like Flatcat says the flowers and greenery are great.
