==MISSING PARTS==

The build is 99%+ complete, and looks exact; only two non-essential and easily substituted parts are missing. Plus the stickers set, obviously, and Aquaraiders II torsos.

Lego had created several 'underwater' subthemes over the years. In 1995, the "Aquazone" series began which lasted for at least three years, with over 25 sets produced. It was a typical fantasy/action/adventure Lego world, focused on playability and variety of characters. A few generations of Aquazone minifigures represented the "good" and the "bad" guys: human Aquanauts, Hydronauts & Aquaraiders against the evil protagonists—Aquasharks, followed by even more menacing, alien-like Stingrays in 1998.

In parallel, as a part of the Classic Town, there was a short-lived "Divers" subtheme in 1997: regular, 'civilian' divers exploring the ocean's floor in realistic, life-like submarines, on various research ships, floating marine labs, etc.

In 2007, Lego decided to resurrect the "Aquazone" subtheme. This set no. 7776 "Shipwreck" is perhaps my favorite in the 'Aquaraiders II' series. It's built entirely out of standard Lego parts, without a Bionicle-style projectile launcher, and it doesn't have one of those absurd "giant sea monsters" fighting the minifigs (and they all are a bit too cartoonish and goofy-looking for my taste).

There are two main parts in 'The Shipwreck' set: sunken remains of an old sailing vessel on the bottom of the sea, with copious treasures still intact, and a falling mast as a dangerous trap for the divers. A skeleton, accompanied by a few poisonous sea snakes, is guarding the treasure chest.

Second, a cool-looking submarine equipped with pneumatic harpoon shooters, a rotating multi-harpoon rifle on top, and two robotic arms. One of the manipulators has a magnet to recover any metal objects and handle cargo containers. One of the two minifigures comes in full diving gear, including a powerful underwater scooter with two harpoon rifles.
