Hello and welcome to another, oh wait, first Batbrick and iamded review!
Today us two sworn enemies will be reviewing the Creator Cargo Chopper, here is the front of the box:
And while pushing iamded to his doom, here is the back:
Haha! Ouch! Oh dear...here are the parts anyway...
Here is the instruction of the first model, the Cargo Chopper. I love Creator sets for the different models, they always excite me. Just ignore me finishing off my nemesis in the background.
Something very interesting that I liked in the instructions was this step where you must add those three 2x2 yellow rounded pieces under the chopper.
This is for support while you build, which is handy, and later you take it off:
And even later use it as the cargo. I found that to be rather innovative and clever, as well as - Hey! What are you hitting me for?
Both instruction booklets have the same back:
Now heres the Chopper itself. I love the design of it, it isn't quite minifig scale but its great all the same. This is my first non-Xpod or House creator set, and it sure is fun.
Here me and iamded go for a dizzy ride. I love the nose of the copter, and the landing gear is fantastic.
A shot from the other side. Oh dear, it seems we've been a bit sick from that ride, and were vomiting transgreen 1x1s.
The cargo itself is nicely made, though I forgot to put on two tiles here :-$ .
It fits in real well with the chopper to, and the line is great for giving iamded the wedgie he deserves:
This is my first power function set, so I was pretty excited. The motor is intergrated really well into this set, and is activated by pushing that little 3x2 plate with the 1x1 slopes on it forward, until it hits the motor button, that orange knob. Another point of interest is the use of bley barrels on each side. I like this as I don't have those pieces in that colour.
A shot of the motor. Its really simple, all you do is pull the hook out to any length that allows, then press the orange button and it will wind it back up. This makes the Chopper pull the cargo up into its bay, and iamded pull me here reluctantly to a whacking:
A top view, is that MY head?
A view of the chopper without the cargo in it. I love the lowered cockpit:
The leftover pieces from building: (NOTE: iamded's head does not count as set piece)
And a final shot of the set with me and iamded. Oh, it appear we're dead, oh dear...
Hope you enjoyed this review, soon I will post the two alternate models. I loved this chopper, its great to play with and has nice construction. It also has some handy pieces too. The motor function sounds like a gimmick but is well intergrated into this model. Well worth the price, so far this is another win for Creator I say! So far I recommend this model, but later we'll see if the alt models are up to scratch.
Also, since this is my first review, comments and criticism welcome on everything.
Batbrick Away! >:-)
