6990 Monorail Transport System was a Futuron set released in 1987.

Details Edit

The monorail itself is made up of two sections. One section is where the system is controlled. This section is mainly white, with some black elements also used. Its laser canons are transparent red and its windows are transparent blue. The small spacecraft is stored right behind the cockpit in a section where the walls can be opened and closed. Behind it is another section where the walls can also open and close. Connecting this section to the main part is a monorail motor. This section of the Monorail has the same color scheme as the other. It, too, has a cockpit facing the opposite direction, allowing it to be steered from both ends. The difference between this section and the other is that instead of storage container, it includes a Light & Sound battery box. On both ends of the monorail is a bumper.

The base is composed of multiple parts. One of these parts is a raised base section where the monorail runs through on the track. It uses a TECHNIC axle system which, when turned, raises or lowers a satellite dish. The base has lights and weaponry on each end, with two more lasers on top and lights near the track. Its color scheme is white and black, with some transparent red and a few of transparent blue elements.

The other part of base is on a larger baseplate. It is at ground level, unlike the other section. It, too, has a TECHNIC axle part which, when rotated, rotates a large window through a range of 90 degrees. It has a landing pad which fits the smaller vessel. Another section of track runs through this segment of the base. There are also two large scanners. This part contains a mix of white and black pieces and a large amount of transparent blue pieces. Along the track are two satellite towers and an arch.

A small ship is also included in the set. It has four thrusters on the bottom of it for propulsion. It, too, is a transport vehicle, with a box carrying a device and a box which stores weaponary. Also included in the set is a small spacecraft. It has no weapons, but has two thrusters and a control panel.

The set also contains two Blue Futuron Astronauts and three Yellow Futuron Astronauts. The torsos have a diagonal zipper running down it and a Classic Space logo in the upper corner.

Notes Edit
