First pictures of 2009 LEGO Power Miners sets [News]

UPDATE 2: 2009 LEGO Power Miners sets are now available from the LEGO Shop online.

UPDATE 1: For those of you coming in from a search engine, we’ve recently posted pictures of the 2009 Power Miners box art.

The first pictures of the 2009 Power Miners theme are available. Please note that these pictures may be very preliminary and the sets themselves have a high chance of undergoing major revisions, and gosh are they needed.


Enjoy the random City impulse set.

    No Ramone. Where you are might be America.

    I reserve judgement until production begins. I hope they fix these designs up though. I never liked Rock Raiders too much.

    Three of them look fine-ish… It’s had to say how nice from the pictures. The other three looks bad only because of all the Technic pieces, and I hate that there is so many useless Bionicle pieces.

    Yes the reddish color is bad, however it is supposed to be hot steel so I think that works fine.

  3. 3!

    quoth mike psiaki: I’m pretty sure in mining you don’t want your tools to be red hot as they probably are not very sturdy when they reach that point. But don’t ask me, I only go to school for this…

    damn straight! i for one, will absolutely boycott this line of lego brand brick sets because it completely flies in the face of their previous history of unwavering technical accuracy and stark realism in their high quality building kits.

    How inconsiderate of TLG to propose a series without first consulting all of us personally on what would really help us with our collection. I’m sure the mistake has been noticed by now, and we can all expect a sincere apology via phone call very soon.

    In the meantime, I suggest we all band together to make it through this difficult time.

    the green doesn’t seem bad to me, but giant red or transparent orange drills and sawblades really annoy me. do they serve any use other than taking up space? really now?

  7. thwaak

    Are you serious, Patrick? You can’t imagine any MOCs utilizing those red/orange/trans/whatever pieces? You think they’d just take up space?

    *sigh*

    i personnally like the lime-green or sand green color scheme. the blue rock raider helmets i would like better in brown or gray, but i see good uses for them. some of the smaller sets look like re-makes of rock raiders, top left one more than others. the new “rock” monsters look amazingly cool. and i have a good feeling for these sets and i will definatly buy some. just hope not to pricy like th clone wars sets.=)

    What a disappointment. But that’s LEGO for ya, isn’t it?

    I mean, look at the actual vehicle designs themselves and you’ll see there are some pretty cool details and just their overal construction is pretty interesting. But what does LEGO do with a good intial design? Why they go ahead and slapp on a lime-green paint job and attach some ugly red scoops and grab-arms.

    I don’t like the lime green and the blue helmets.
    If Lego made them look like Rock Raiders they would be awesome.
    I hope they do…if they do, I buy them and add them to my Lego Rock Raider collection, my Rock Raider minifigs will have new vehicles!
    IF Lego is making Power Miners look like Rock Raiders.
    Oh, please, let Lego read this.

    Lego, if you read this, I’m begging you, make Power Miners look like Rock Raiders and add some of the Rock Raider stuff, for example adding the minifigs/heads/torso’s from the Rock Raiders, please!

    Oh and by the way, I didn’t meant lime green and blue helmets, I meant the lime green vehicles and the blue helmets.

    “I don’t see any Lime green HELMETS”

    the pieces in them are great, and so what if they are not the greatest built, i like making my own things after i built the set (unless its super cool) so im all for it. you should check out the 2009 farm sets.

  13. Caleb

    Okay guys,these set’s aren’t as good as rockraiders.BUT,We all liked the rock raiders right?This is the same thing,just with different(crappy)Colors.these are PROTOTPES,that means that those colors may not be what they are!
    PS,is that the miifig head with that red haeadband from robo space sets?

  14. Crazydude 900

    I for one think there shouldn’t be any people in these sets. Also if these are the real deal, I’m only buying them for the little rock monsters. The tools shouldn’t be red because that means they’re overheated, and in real life that would lead to them bending and becoming useless.

    GO LEGO CHEF! : )

    I don’t think these sets will be very popular. The colors are terrible and they are sort of technic and lego bricks put together. Personally, I hate technic, but that huge drilling machine is pretty cool. (One in the middle)

  16. christian

    the sets look awful from the pictures that they give you but they might have changed them but what i want to know is if the rock monsters can even move just like the aliens from mars mission they cant move their arms if the rock monsters cant move their arms or legs than theyll be crap.

  17. dean

    These sets are weird. The color scheme is strange. They should have made the colors black, brown, and gray. The Rock Monsters are going to be stupid. They won’t be able to move their legs, only their arms and mouth. And whats up with the Exo-force miner set?! That is a total copy off! And just heads up on the piece count, I think the biggest power miners set has like 400-500 pieces in it. Hopefully these sets will change a little in time…

  18. chris

    i can see why they made the sets red cause its supposed to be burning metal but common the colours are just stupid looking green with hot red wtf?!? But i do like the chef the hat looks really cool.

  19. Laurence

    Green! Why green? The lego company just had to pick the worst colour ever! I much prefered the old rock raider sets

  20. Glued Paper

    Woa! They turned out to be great. I have two of the sets. Believe me it’s great! Especially the monsters. BUY IT NOW IF YOU GO FOR THE PLAYABILITY!
