Tag Archives: Power Miners

The LEGO Power Miners theme was first released in 2009 and discontinued at the end of 2010. Inspired by the fan favorite Rock Raiders theme of the 1990s, the theme has proved popular among LEGO builders for its excellent orange and green color scheme and for its alternative take on traditional construction themes.

UPDATE: High-res photos of LEGO Atlantis sets are now out.


Alexander (Shurik) posted pictures of some of the 2010 sets that LEGO has displayed at a sponsored event in Russia called Festival Rossiyskogo Fan Forum Lego. The featured sets include samples from the following themes: Atlantis, Toy Story, Prince of Persia, Star Wars, Power Miners, City, Bionicle and more.

EDIT (TG): These pictures were uploaded due to a miscommunication and have been removed from Flickr at the request of TLG. The local Ambassador, Igor Makarov, asked me to remove the deeplink which I have done.

UPDATE: Target.com also has box art for one of the 2010 LEGO Power Miners sets, 8188 Fire Blaster:

New LEGO Space Police, Castle, Power Miners, Agents 2.0 now available [News]

The mid-2009 LEGO sets are now available from The Official LEGO Shop online, including the brand-new LEGO Space Police theme — a theme that has the fingerprints of Mark Stafford and Adam Grabowski all over it.


Two of the smaller sets make it easy to get a couple of the unique new aliens from this theme.

LEGO Castle fans are sure to shout for delight at the availability of the newest sets, including this massive fortress full of goblin and troll minifigs, along with a couple smaller sets.

LEGO Agents gets a reboot in LEGO Agents 2.0. With the cool minifigs that I love this theme for, the line includes a hilariously awesome mecha.


Finally, five new LEGO City sets are also available, including 7641 City Cornericon with its six-wide city bus.


Here’s a partial list of new sets that are available:

LEGO Power Miners Walker by Bob Newill

LEGO fans here in Seattle still unconvinced that the new Power Miners color scheme is “realistic” need only look out their windows on recycling day each week — the new natural gas-powered trucks are exactly the same color as Bob Newill‘s walker:

Check out more photos of Bob’s walker in his LEGO Power Miners Walker photoset on Flickr.

Don’t miss this adorable little bucket robot:

Chasing Boulderax on two wheels

The fighter by Geoff Herndon (Tekka Croe) that Dan blogged yesterday may be spikier, but I’m a sucker for small and adorable.

This Power Miners bike would make an awesome impulse-purchase set.

EDIT: Oh look, this drilling unit by Kevin Fedde (Crimson Wolf) also fits the post title!

EDIT 2: Okay, what is up with all the two-wheeled Power Miners vehicles? Huh, Rocko?
