Welcome to what I hope will be a regular series of articles. Every day we plan to feature a classic set that holds some significance to a Brickset reader, and we will ask them to explain why.
To kick things off I'm going to start with 6175 Crystal Explorer Sub.
I emerged from my dark ages in 1995 and initially my interest was in Technic, as it was when I entered them in 1979. However, that year the first Aquazone sets were released and for some reason they immediately caught my eye. I think it must have been the futuristic design, attractive colour scheme and cool minifig helmets.
6175 Crystal Explorer Sub was the mid-range set of that first wave. It featured the good guys of the theme, the Aquanauts. Unlike many of today's sets there was no conflict in the box: just divers peacefully going about their exploratory business with no weapons in sight. If you wanted conflict, other sets in the range could be purchased to provide it.
