Theme: Monster Fighters
At the moment it is hot as hell here in germany. I couldn't sleep so I decided to review two other Monster Fighters sets. I build the set a few days ago, so I didn't have pictures of the closed bags. Sorry.
Now here it is, my review of "The Swamp Creature". Enjoy.
The box of the Swamp Creature had the same overall layout of the other MF sets. It is very appealing as a Horror inspired theme. The old-style picture of all characters at the back is a nice touch also.
The instructions and random page.
The highlight of this set. The Minifigs. As I said in another review, the prints in this line are amazing. This set is no exception. Both figures got backprinting and doubleprinted heads. The creature is a very cool and unique addition to the Lego monster squad of the recent years.
Pieces of interest. This clip piece isn't new, but in this color it is only available in 4 sets.
The little environment build to hold the gem. Nothing special here, but nice parts.
The Swampboat in build. Nice design, simple build.
The finished set.
Spare parts. Nothing unusual.
Human vs. Monster, no playfeatures but a vehicle. Ok for a set this size.
This category is a total winner. The creature is beautiful designed and unique. Frank Rock got some awesome torso and leg printing. His face is also nice. Stunning figures.
Nice selection but nothing to special.
Good value. This set is a great introduction into the theme. Very well put LEGO.
Total: 34/40 recommended
