Time Cruisers is LEGO's one and only time travel theme. It has two factions: The Time Cruisers and the Time Twisters. The plot revolves around a professor named Dr. Cyber's travels through time.

Description

The following is a description of Time Cruisers from a period LEGO catalog page:

LEGO.com-icon-yellow This is a description taken from LEGO.com. Do not modify it.

Time Cruisers
"The LEGO Time Cruisers sets will give you the chance to travel through time...anytime! Imagine navigating your vehicle through the depths of time, visiting other places past and present to complete your top secret mission! Careful though, as you never know who or what you'll meet! Most importantly, remember to get back home, or you could be trapped in time forever!"


The Time Cruisers power their time machines with special hats. While the plot specified by LEGO involves activities taking place in the past, the set of hats offered in the Hypno Cruiser includes an alien helmet, indicating that travel to the future is possible. The Time Twisters use a clear cylinder filled with artifacts from the different eras power their time travel.

Factions

Time Cruisers has two different factions. The Time Cruisers and the Time Twisters.

The Time Cruisers are the protagonists of the theme and were introduced with its' initial release in 1996. Dr. Cyber and his assistant Tim are the main characters in this faction, and they visit other ages to gather knowledge and the repair damage wrought by the Time Twisters (which appeared the following year). They also have two other members, a robot named Wacco, and a monkey named Ingo. Their primary objective is to remain undercover and meddle as little as possible with history.

Time Twisters

Their vehicles are powered by cylinders filled with valuable articles from the past. They travel through time to steal objects of value to add to their cylinders, and interfere with the past.
