[Review] 8076 Deep Sea Striker
Posted 08 August 2010 - 12:20 PM
Name: Deep Sea Striker
Price: € 19,99
Found this Set yesterday in a near TrU. After building it I noticed that there is
no review of it yet. So here is my take on this set. (Sorry, there are no pictures
of the bagged parts and the loose parts)
It's a lengthy box which size and weight feels right for this price point.
A small but thick book.
Pieces of Interest
Nothing special. Only the amount of some parts is very impressive.
You got 10 white teeth, 12 black teeth, 6 red bulbs and 16 black (half)pyramid slopes.
I didn't apply the stickers. In my opinion, without the stickers the model looks a lot
The Atlantis Manta Key
The Torso and Legs are as usual. The two sided head seems new. I really like
his scared face.
A nice little vehicle. Nothing special, and against the giant scorpion pretty
useless, I think.
He is very big. It's a little unbalanced. The Tail won't stay in place if it is posed
to much forward.
Scorpion without Tail and Claws
Here you can see the pretty accurate pose of an angry Scorpion.
The mechanics of the Tail.
Turn the wheel and...
...ouch! The two stings hit really hard. There is enough space between them, so there
is no way the Scorpion would accidentally hit his head.
The complete Set (in a pretty dark picture)
The usual suspects.
I really like the Scorpion. He is a great model and looks pretty cool. His balance
problems are easily fixed. Without the stickers he looks a lot more intimidating.
The Scooter is nice but nothing outstanding.
Like I said, the Scorpion is great and he can do much mayhem to your Divers.
Nothing special, but it's great to get so much teeth in one set.
Usual Atlantis diver with a nice Head.
The Scorpion build is sometimes pretty repetitive, but the end product
holds up very well. Again, the scooter is nothing special.
I payed €19,99 for the set. It's ok. It would be better if it was €5 cheaper (without Scooter) or
€ 5 more expensive (with a bigger vehicle).
The 8 just for the Scorpion. I really like this guy. It's a much better design than
the shark from the first wave. For Atlantis or Brickbuildt Creature Fans a must-have.

Still, all in all, I agree that it's a good buy. Lots of black and white teeth, hinges, and leg parts for other creature MOCs.

It's size is really impressive. Just awesome.
As a fan of brickbuilt creatures it's a must buy for me in the next couple days.
I've already seen it at "Real" but first had to pick up the Exploration HQ there.
