Futuron was a Classic Space sub-theme that was around from 1987 until 1990. Futuron were peaceful space explorers that carried on the colour scheme and spirit of the original space sets. They were one of the larger space factions with over 17 sets released, but were also one of the shortest, lasting only 3 years. The spacemen were the same colours as the original space minifigures (blue, white, red and black) but had zippers with the Futuron logo as well as modern helmets with blue visors. They had no main spaceship, but instead a Monrail Transport Base which was battery powered and was released in 1990.
