The Joy of Aquazone

This years BrickCon had a great Aquazone build that got a few people talking about how much they love Aquazone. And at the VLC we talked about doing an Aquazone display once upon a time. It reminded me of this one from BrickCon 2010 that I though I would share.

Here is a short stop-motion I recently made with a friend. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCXrWZ7gHoY It's a comedic attack on our voting system.

Re: Spend $75 get a free set with a yellow bike

I thnkthe bike is orange. look at the box in the background. You can really see the difference, compared the the minifigs head.

I love this set and want many. The fact that they have parts for a female statue is very cool. Gold frogs and everything in this is awesome.
