Today's post is a showcase of the art for the electric Futuron sets. It took some time to track down 6770's alternates, but like all things, it eventually surfaced on the interwebs.

And here is the sealed contents with flip up lid. The lid gives details on how the light system works.
From Steelerstiv on Ebay, thanks for bringing this picture to the internet.
In general, the heavy use of wheels and tendency toward long generic vehicles go a long way towards hinting at the spare options for this set, but as alternates go, these look pretty fun.
If you go to http://kockageneracio.blogspot.com there's an, intense, excellent looking blog review of 6990 which I can't read without Google Translate. He's the source of these other sourced images, check it out, it's a great, and in my opinion, superior companion piece to my own post. I feel a great desire to upgrade my camera now; which has happened since, and I am whittling my way through this blog updating. Anyways, check his photographs out.

Underneath the lid is a panel showing off the various features of 6990.

Here's a sealed copy of 6990 with all the parts in the display layout.
Egyszerűen tökéletes! (via ebay.com)
The alternates present more stations with more trains. It's impressive, apparently, all the designers could make with the set was more of the same. Though, there are a few hovercraft models around, and the use of the train bogey on a smaller car is intriguing.

Once again, that's all for this post.
