5969 Squidman Escape is a Space Police III set released in May 2009 as part of the theme's first wave. Included are the minifigures Squidman and a Space Police III Officer, along with a police vehicle and a piece representing 100 units of currency.
- The Raptor
The Space Police Raptor is much like a hovering speeder. It is wedge-shaped and mainly white, with two sloped bricks on each side. Stickers of a black rectangle with the word POLICE inside are located on each side of the vehicle, along with stickers of grey ovals with a pattern like trailing smoke behind them. On each side, a flat 2x1 piece much like a grill is located. Protruding from the front of the Raptor are twin blasters in the form of transparent green cone pieces. Above these is a white flap acting as the hood. A sticker present on the hood depicts the Space Police III insignia; a red wedge shape with a star in the centre and a curved line in the lower right corner. The hood can be lifted up by way of the hinges it is connected to. The Raptor's handlebars are black and can move up, down and both sides. The officer stands behind the handlebars and can grip them with both hands.
- The Minifigures and Accessories
The set contains two minifigures, a Space Police III Officer and Squidman.
The officer is dark grey with black hands and printing of light armour. The Space Police III insignia is located in the centre of his torso. The minifigure wears a black helmet with a visor of the same colour and has silver glasses over a grinning face. Squidman has a bright green body and torso with a red cape and a specially moulded grey headpiece with protruding red eyes, three teeth and a long, narrow red tongue.
The piece representing money is a flat green 2x1 brick with a white 100 in the centre and smaller black printings of the same number in each corner.
Squidman, a known intergalactic criminal, was on the run with stolen money. To track him down, the Space Police deployed an officer in a Raptor, a high speed hovercraft.
- This set was originally scheduled for release in August, but was released early by LEGO in May 2009.
- The Space Police officer has a face identical to that of Agent Fuse from the Agents theme.
- This set was included in the Product Collections set 2853300 Space Police Collection.
