    looks like a mix of aquanauts and space, quite weird.

    This was "Seatron", a Space theme concept that was eventually developed into Aquazone after they sort of dropped the space aspect. So the similarity is no coincidence.

    Was that a proper mock up for a proposed set?  Never seen it before, but look super cool.  Blue monorail track for where it goes underwater?

    Certainly was! Here's a pic of the undersea creatures factions ships

    And this is what the creatures looked like - twenty five years before we got modified minifig legs!

    it was a bit like the stingrays.
    actually wasn't it 1989? peg leg?

    Could have been 25 years before the first molded torso, perhaps?  Not sure if we have a date on when Sea-Tron was in development, but the first molded torso (apart from "stiffy" figs) I believe was in 2012 for Ninjago?

    I've always enjoyed seeing the pictures of SeaTron.  Just imagine if Aquazone had a monorail in its first or second wave! 

    Has anyone ever tried to recreate these unofficial / prototype sets?

    Your entirely correct Fauch - my poorly worded comment was referring to the CMF Faun/Satyr legs. It could also be argued that stuff like Battle Droids had 'modified minifig legs.
    @davee123 I'd assume Seatron was developed around 1990 (going by the inclusion of monorail parts).  This is all assuming that the unreleased monorail actually WAS part of the Seatron theme (as it doesn't share many design and colour similarities to what we know WAS Seatron).

    the one you put on top of a regular torso?
    has there been a modified torso that fits on legs?
    and the head? I think I read yoda or jar jar were first to have modified heads, but I don't know.

    Dogpound and Leatherhead from TMNT are the only ones I can think of. Axl from Nexo Knights sort of has one, but it's still a regular torso underneath, just with a unique neck/shoulder/armor piece permanently affixed to it in place of the usual arms.

    First modified head was Jar-Jar, I think. Yoda came later (preceded by C-3PO, Chewbacca, and Watto).

    I had been thinking of Lord Garmadon's torso:

    Although upon thinking further, that plugs onto the top of another torso, not onto a pair of legs, so... might not count, depending.
