Oh, would you look at that? McStudz finally posted a topic that's actually RELATED to LEGO Rock Raiders!

Anyways, according to the Wikipedia page I read a VERY long time ago on LRR (No doubt edited by one of RRU's own), there were three Rock Raider books (High Adventure, Deep Underground; Save the Spaceship; and Race for Survival).

Does ANYONE know where one could get scans of these books? Cy, Lair, anyone??? Does anyone even HAVE these books?

Not I. But I'm sure Cyrem, in his recent shopping spree for all things classic LEGO has probably encountered and obtained one...

I had all 3 at one point, and I'm not one to throw things away, so chances are I still do. I'll let you know if I find em.

I posess all three. I have lost Race for Survival, but its artwork isn't interesting aside from the crystal cache. I'll find it. Meanwhile HADU and Save the Spacethip (apparently also Rock Raiders - An Interactive Puzzle Book) (because it is) are in my reach.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a copy of "High Adventure, Deep Underground" dirt cheap. From all the digging that i've been doing, I thought it was pretty rare. I'll try to put up some scans of the pages, but its bound in a way where I might not be able to get it into the scanner....

Would you be able to scan them? or at least part of them?

 

That was the whole point of me making this thread. :P

Okay, so, with the clarified rules now in place, I thought it would be pertinent to link to this Brickshelf gallery with scans of the Rock Raiders books, uploaded by raidwhale.

 

I don't currently have any non-RR LEGO Media books (aside from the Ultimate LEGO Book), but I am planning on trying to track down the Adventurers ones soon, so expect scans of them at some point. In the meantime, Brickipedia has the first few pages of The Lost Temple. Interestingly, it's implied that Senor Palomar is working for Baron Sam von Hates "Evil Eye" Gluipstra (or perhaps it's just a convienient coincidence that the writer decided to have him working for "an art collector" who steals ancient artifacts).

I think I also uploaded scans of the Space Port book somewhere. Off the top of my head, I have no idea where I put it. If Sadie or Alec has the link that I sent them, please post it here.

That would be great. My copy is missing the cover and first two pages. I'm also really interested in reading the Egypt one. I had it as a kid and lost it.

 

It turns out that the Space Port book was never uploaded for some reason or another (I believe it was due to a repeated failure to upload to mediafire). When I return home for Thanksgiving, I'll upload it if nobody else has by then. Hopefully it's still on my parent's home computer, but if not, I'll re-scan it. I also have Medieval Mischief and Mayhem to scan/upload, but I don't have it with me so I can't do it until Thanksgiving.

Question: How do you get good scans? The uploads on Mediafire were all pictures, except one (and the Space Port book), because scans never came out right.

 

Also, is anyone interested in scanned LEGOLAND California books? One is a visitor's guide and one is an activity book. As far as I can tell, there isn't any information about old themes, but it may be of interest to someone.
