EVERY LEGO Ice Planet 2002 Set in the Space Subtheme

LEGO launched Ice Planet 2002, a space subtheme, during the peak era of LEGO space factions and rivalries. During the late 1980s to late 1990s time period the toy company developed a series of vibrant space subthemes. Each subtheme features signature color schemes and minifigure uniforms denoting the organization/allegiance of a character.

The Ice Planet vehicles and the main ice station all feature a white a blue color scheme with signature trans-neon orange accent panels, radar dishes, antennas, skis and chainsaws to cut through ice! All minifigures in the series wear the super cool trans-neon orange visor with built-in antenna as well. The trans-neon orange hinged skis as well as the visors with built-in antennas are only available in two LEGO subthemes: Ice Planet 2002 and Time Cruisers / Twisters. Several sets in the series utilize white, hard plastic buggy wheels.

Sets from the series pair with Spyrius and Blacktron. Both organizations are bent on stealing research satellites and rockets from the Ice Planet team. Sets also pair with other 1990s era Space subthemes including: M-Tron, Space Police, and Unitron.

Official LEGO Description of the Ice Planet Subtheme

Krysto, an inhospitable world of ice, serves as a top secret satellite and rocket research facility for the Ice Planeteers. Commander Cold, the grizzled Ice Planet Chief, oversees the operations of the ice station and its researchers and support crew. Scientist and adventurer Doctor Kelvin conducts research on the planet, developing innovative snow treads, freeze rays, and hand warmers.

Despite the secrecy of the ice stations operations, the treacherous Spyrians steal many Ice planet research satellites and rockets whenever they get the chance. The Spyrians hide the stolen technology from the prying eyes of the Space Police while their loyal robots guard the bounty.
