Deep-Sea Adventvres 


Hang onto your snorkel as you team 
vp with the Aqvanavis in search of 
the preciovs crystal that provides 
oxygen for the undersea world. But 
be on the lookovt for the Aquvasharks! 
They'll stop at nothing to take all 
the erystals for themselves. 

6155 Deep Sea Predator: Fins 
ahoy! With special magnetic arm 
and robotic claw, this scowling 
sub is a lean, mean crystal 
grabbing machine. 

6175 Crystal Explorer Sub: 
This slick submersible 
easily scoops up oxygen 
crystals with its 

magnetic arm. The 

sub’s working compass 
shows even a rookie 
Aquanaut how to-find the 
great 8-armed guardian of 
the oxygencrystals! 

6195 Neptune 
Discovery Lab: This 
place is better than 
an underwater mall. 
The lab has its own 
crystal harvesting a 
sub. A handy crane There's

am fourteen 
years old 

' . and am an 
avid LEGO builder. I have 
been building since I was 
about five years old. I enjoy 
building houses out of LEGO 
pieces and then furnishing 
them. I get some of my ideas 
for houses in house plan 

If you flip 
this you can

I also like doing the little 
details on the exterior of 
the building as well as the 
interior. My creations are 
all in one large LEGO town 
in my basement. A variety 
of my LEGO buildings are 
going to be in a toy 
store window at the 
Columbia Mall, in 
Maryland. !

go through the 
upper ocean — 
water filled with 
hurricanes, tidal 
waves, and things 
that may want to os

of a deep-sea quest. As you dive

Most of the creatures at the 
bottom of the sea have built-in 
lights that glow, flash, and twinkle. 
Scientists often turn off Alvin’s 
lights and enjoy an underwater 
light show! Most deep-sea fish are 
small and have few bones so they 
can survive the water pressure. 
Some deep-sea animals have rela- 
tives in shallow water such as 
squid, octopus, and worms.

L the 

future, people 
may rely more 
on the oceans for 
food, fuel and 
shelter. Underwater 
fish farms may become 
a major source of food. 
The oceans are full of 
minerals like gold, copper, and 

nickel, so eventually there may be 
underwater mining centers. There are 
even underwater houses and museums 
being designed. 

For now, the Aquazone is all yours for 
the exploring: discover fascinating sea 
creatures, uncover pirate gold, or climb 
an underwater mountain to the Lost 
Continent of Atlantis. 

After that brief but breathtaking tour, 
come up for air, and dock your Sea 

_ Sprint. If you came up with a 

| brilliant idea for building a fantastic 
| Aquazone model, just do it! Then 

* send in a picture of your model for 

_ other LEGO Maniacs to see. You can 

even enter it in this issue's Building 
Challenge. ;
