The one-of-a-kind Mine Mech is an experimental mining walker built to go where the other Power Miners vehicles can’t. Its enhanced movement and armor make it perfect for exploration and emergency rescues, and its spinning plasma cutter and crushing claw make it more than a match for any rock – or rock monster!
Features spinning saw blade, claw arm, moveable legs to walk or pose model and opening cockpit!
Includes miner and rock monster minifigures and accessories!
Combine with #8956 Stone Chopper to build the Cave Cutter!
The Mine Mech is a well-rounded set — the decorations look great, and it has a very BIONICLE feel. However, the limbs feel clumsy to operate, perhaps because I'm not a BIONICLE fan, and various parts have a tendency to fall off. In general, not really worth buying unless you need to complete your collection.
This set is one of the smallest Power Miners sets, but it is still an awesome set. It includes the Mine Mech, Brains, Boulderax and several accessories. The Mine Mech is a small piloted mech mostly comprised of lime green, black and grey pieces. There are five small stickers. The cockpit can open and there is room for one minifigure and has two control levers. On the sides of the cockpit are clips to hold the included pickaxe and dynamite. The legs have two ball joints each: one for the "hip", and one for the "ankle". The arms have only one ball joint, on the "shoulder", resulting in limited mobility. One arm has a spinning saw/plasma cutter, and the other has a large claw that can open and close. Brains is a common Power Miners minifigure with a blue helmet as an accessory. Boulderax and the large, green crystal are both exclusive to this set.
