Rock Raiders was a theme that was released in 1999. It was based on space travelers/miners that got trapped at an alien planet. The theme consisted of 8 main sets, 4 promotional sets and 3 minifigure sets. There was also a video game based on the theme for both PC and PSX. Rock Raiders was discontinued after 2000.


The eponymous Rock Raiders were a team of miners that searched for energy crystals in the underground. They had several specialized mining and transport vehicles at their disposal, and were based at a refinery station where they processed rocks to extract the neon-green Energy Crystals. During their excavations, they would occasionally encounter brown Rock Monsters, but these were only included in two different sets.

This was the second theme (the first was Adventurers Egypt) whose minifigures were all individual characters with names.

The setting had several elements that were reprised and also somewhat further developed in the Power Miners theme ten years later, such as the occurrence of Rock Monsters and Energy Crystals. Here, the Rock Monsters had just minor appearances and were not named characters, merely bearing the name "Rock Monster".

Rock Raiders introduced also several new pieces: the chrome drill, a blade saw, the hollow rock pieces and an electric light-producing cannon piece that served as a laser cutter.

The sets of the first wave, which were also the only ones of the theme that appeared in the catalogs, all included Rock Raiders comics. The models and minifigures of the respective set the comic was included in played a major role in the story.

The Brickfather Saga - Chapter 1, by Mariofighter3

BOOM. The warehouse exploded. It was all gone, blinding those who were near in a barrier of ash and smoke. Gears, springs, and Intelligence Chips flew everywhere in the cold Night. "That was a close one, wasn't it Brickfather?" Rench said to me.

"Indeed. All five of those warehouses of androids have been terminated," I replied, "I'm heading off now."

"Thanks again. Until we meet next time." And so both of us headed our separate ways. I headed to into the city, never once looking back. All around, news holograms were reporting the explosion, using security tapes to determine who the culprits were.

Making it to my destination, I walked in and sat in a booth, tipping my hat down and taking my necklace off. For a moment, I thought I was off the hook. Then, the doors opened. He came in, and sat right down in the same booth. "Brick Daddy," He said.

"I still go by The Brickfather Geoff," I replied.

"Well then, Brickfather," Geoff said, "All of us at Space Police Central know. We also heard the news: you are no longer the leader of the Black Hole Gang. Then again, almost no one is."

"Yep, only Snake." I angrily responded.

"Well then listen: I have been assigned a solo mission to the Acid Swamp belt to hack into Snake's android factory there. How about you tag along? After all, you do have a score to settle with him for tricking you into resigning." I thought for a moment.

"Why not," was my response. In so, we headed out to what was the start of my master revenge plan.
