Howdy!

Not sure how many reviews of this are floating around here, but by request of Sir Dano and Nannan, here's my little, pictorial review. I'll post pics here, then give you the flickr links for more info/notes on the set.  :thumbup:

Thanks for looking, and again, read some more about this here: <iframe align="center" src="http://www.flickr.com/slideShow/index.gne?user_id=sirnadroj&set_id=72157605183348109" frameBorder="0" width="500" height="500"></iframe>

I'd have to give it a 5 of 5 for playability, and a 4 of 5 overall.  :thumbup:  Plus, the minifigures are really nice. Some cool new elements, too, like Break Jaw's...jaw  :grin:  and new barbed wire (which is "rubbery")

Thanks again!  :classic:

Looks good, and I'll bet that jaw and wire could be used for lots of MOCs... Is this the only Agents set that contains the wire?

While I'm here: I got the third mission, would anyone like a review of that?

That would be great!

I still wonder why the instructions aren't up yet, though..

Not many words this time, but as they say: a picture is worth a thousand words - and your pictures are lovely!  :thumbup:

Once again, Agents is turning out to be a cooler and cooler theme with each new review. This set looks like an awesome parts pack, and I love the bike!  :wub:

BTW, anyone else notice the possibly accidental reference to Alpha Team? Agent Charge is back, it looks!  :wink:

Thanks for the review, this set is wonderful! U love the TWO dark green crocodiles and awesome minifigs, especially break jaw  :wub:
That bike is awesome and the base, like all agents sets, comes with great pieces, like the barbed wire, orange anything, leafy pieces and brown log pieces. Thanks for the review, I'll definitely get this one!

Batbrick Away!  :devil:

Wow, great review for a really great looking set. The pieces, like the minifigs and crocs are very nice, but that map is reeaally cool for an Aztec/Maya/Inca fan (like me)! I will definately buy this set when it is available in England.  :sweet:

Yeah, I thought that. Then I thought, "nah, he looks different", but I remember that the characters in Alpha Team did change their looks a lot throughout the years (being spies and that).  :tongue:

A really cool playset, thanks for these great pics, SirNadroj!  :thumbup:
A silver jaw helm, cycrocs, some cool faces and a very swooshable bike.... see you later, alligator!  :laugh:
The only thing I don´t get entirely´re these neat barbwire circles.  :look:
What´s the purpose with these.... life rings for masochists? Well.... that makes me look at that tower in

Have you made any other reviews? I want more. Please? :wink:

I'm not planning to get this set, but its pretty cute. The set itself is okay, but the figs are amazing.

Agent Charge: I want that head. :wub:

Unibrow man! Great villain!

Crocs... :wub:
True happiness: looking inside the box to see a perfectly flat instruction manual.

Great little set, nice to have a small building instead of all vehicles. Plant pieces and dark green crocs always welcome. Good parts selection for the price. Thanks for the review! Can't wait till we can get our hands on these!

Great looking set! I’m determined to get all the Agent sets this summer. :angry:
Comments:
Swamp Tower-The barbed wire is cool, but it seems like it’s only for looks. :sadnew:
Bike-Cool looking, but doesn’t seem to have any controls. :hmpf_bad:
Cybercrocs-Wow, haven’t seen any of these pieces for a while, and in dark green, awesome! :wub:
Agent Charge-Sweet head, definitely cool. :grin:
Break Jaw-He looks like the result of some animal testing on humans gone horribly wrong. *oh2*
I hope they come out near me soon. :sweet:

Wow, thanks for the great review, SirNadroj! The overall set is what attracted me in the first place, that elevated hut and swampy setting just sucked me right in! It all looks really nice to me, a definite buy. That Agents head would make a great Indy, for those opposed to fleshies. And that monobrow, I mean, villain guy looks very... er... well, the monobrow is unique, thought I noticed the suit looks a bit skin tight in the crotchal area. :look: Don't look at me like that, you saw it too! :grin: Anyway, the helmet's the best part about the villain, great for Warhammer 40,000 Orks. :sweet:

Very useful pieces, that new Agent head (I think it's new) could be used for a Gordon Freeman minifigure, and Break Jaw's head for Otis the security guard when you take his donuts away from him. :tongue:

I always joked that our house would have a moat around it with mechanical alligators. Now I can build the house in lego! Thanks SirNadroj for the review and pictures. This is definitely my favorite Agents set.

Great review and a good confirmation of exactly what I suspected... this is a parts line for me. Much like Exoforce before it, this will be the theme I pick up when I'm out of other things, or it's on sale. Plus those dark green alligators bring tears of joy to an old pirate. :pir-cry_happy:

You were joking? What about the monkeys and the miniature golf course? Don't ruin my dreams ... :cry_sad:

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

Why do all of the reviews that we have for Agents sets have the agents getting hurt? Is this a new trend?

Plus Unibrow man doesn't have a unibrow. His eyebrows are really close together and bushy!

No, it's an old trend. And it's because villains are cooler.

Actually, it could be long-simmering resentment towards the not-highly-regarded Alpha Team/ Dino Attack sets bubbling forth. See Dr Lucky's hilarious post here for an example of what I mean...

I'm sure the new agents will learn to fight back soon  :sweet:
