Adventurers Sets Information

The Adventurers series was a group of sets made by Lego that were first made in 1998 and continued to be produced up until 2003.

All of the Adventurers sets took place in real world locations, unlike alot of other Lego sets that are set in their own fictional world such as Lego City or Lego Space. The Adventurers sets were set in such exciting real world places such as Egypt, the Amazon Rainforest, the Himalayas, India, and China. The exception to this was the sub theme that this hub page is about which was set on a fictional island, Dino Island, which was inhabited by loads of Prehistoric creatures such as dinosaurs.

The Adventurers theme contained four distinct sub-themes, Egypt, Jungle, Dino Island and Orient Expedition. The main characters in the Adventurers theme were Johnny Thunder (Sam Grant), Dr. Kilroy (Dr. Lightning), and Pippin Reed (Gail Storm). Each sub theme had a range of villains who provided a contrast for the main characters. These villains included characters such as Lord Sam Sinister (aka Baron Von Barron), Emperor Chang Wu, Maharaja Lallu, andSenor Palomar.

There were also a number of minor characters in each series. These characters were people like Harry Cane, Gabarros who was in theAmazonsub theme only, Mike who was in the Dino Island sub theme only, Babloo who was in the Orient Expedition India sub theme only, Sherpa Sangye Dorje who was in the Orient Expedition Himalaya sub theme only and Jing Lee who was in the Orient Expedition China sub theme only.

There were also a number of minor villains as well in each series. These characters were people like Slyboots who was in the Egypt sub theme only, Rudo Villano who was in theAmazonaub theme only, Mr. Cunningham and Alexis Sinister who were in the Dino Island sub theme only and Ngan Pa who was in the Orient Expedition Himalaya sub theme only.

Each series also had an interesting number of new creature with it. These creatures ranged from theT-Rexand the Baby T-Rex in Dino Island to Tygurah in the Orient Expedition India series, the Yeti in the Orient Expedition Himalaya series and the Jun-Chi in the Orient Expedition China series.

The Adventurers theme was eventually discontinued in 2003 due to the fact that there many loads of new Lego themes that were due to be released around this time.
