Review: 4767 Harry Potter - Hungarian Horntail

Harry vs. the Hungarian Horntail
All three figures are great. I especially like Mad-Eye Moody. His torso is fantastic for a scavenger, tinkerer, gadget guy, terrorist, punk rocker, whatever.
Another nifty torso back for Harry.
Dumbledore's torso was covered by his beard... but i'ts brand new and fantastic. Castlers, rejoice.
It's not as bad as people say it is. This is an evolved version of the original SYSTEM dragon. Medieval, incompatible with much else, and jagged.
The left side. Two BURPs, a bunch of dark orange bricks, some hinges. Nice pieces. Construction? Make me gag. Broom launcher? Gag.
The right side. Two LURPs, a bunch of dark orange bricks, some hinges. Nice pieces. Construction? Make me... hey, I'm getting this odd sense of deja vu.
The back of side two.
Again - bad construction.
Tip the top and the stands fall over. This is in no way correlated to the dragon pulling at its chain. Too bad.
FANTASTIC crest tiles. That Hogwarts one is going to be at the head of some incredible MOCs, I can tell...

Final Verdict: 6.9/10
The build is so poor, I couldn't rate it higher. Great for pieces and figs, though!
Finally, coming up... Rescue From The Merpeople.

The dragon is 'stiff'. It doesn't have many movable joints and WHERE ARE THE ARMS? The mountains......... no comment on them (too tired to keep complaining though it's obvious that they are BURPs, haha).
There are a few things that I like about this set:
1. The tan banana-shaped claws of the dragon
2. The magnetic piece
3. The crest tiles of three schools
4. New minifig of Prof. Dumbledore and Mad-Eye Moody
