Theme: Monster Fighters
Here is my third review for the Monster Fighters theme. As with 9461 I build it a few days ago. No unopend bag shot, sorry.
For the theme itself, I'm very impressed so far. The overall design of the builds and the figures is great. In my opinion one of the best action themes in recent years. But enough talk, here is "The Werewolf". Enjoy.
The box of this set is pretty big. Lots of empty space in it. The back shows off the playfeature and the glow in the dark claws. Cool
The instructionbooklet. Twisted as always. There is a nice picture at the end of it showing the characters face-off.
The werewolf is a nice and new design. A mix of the CMF werewolf and the "put on head" one from the Studios line. A cool little figure with amazing prining details. Major Quinton Steele has a singlesided head with nice face expression and one of the most useful torso and leg prints this line has to offer. I can't say it enough times, the prints are gorgeous.
Same cool pieces in this set. You got a golden fez, darkbrown gun, trans-orange 1x1 brick, silver frog, olive leafs and the longer cheeseslope in tan.
Up to the main build. First the Majors Hot Rod. Very nice design. Nothing to hard in the building progress.
Next part is the tree. There are a lot of bricks used inside the trunk (2x4 green brick, for example). The outside is sometimes very fragile but in the end it is sturdy. I like the use of the new brick bricks at the bottom. Gives the build a weathered touch.
The spare parts. Nice to see another glow in the dark claw.
The finished set. The tree has a nice creepy vibe to it. I like it.
Last thing is the playfeature. You can place the Werewolf (or any other minifig) on top of the tree, pull the lever down, the front leafs split and the figure flies through the air. It functions very well and is fun to play around.
The Hot Rod is a nice little vehicle, there is always a good playvalue to such a thing. The playfeature in the tree works well and adds a lot to this set.
Just great. Amazing detail and useful prints. I like the new werewolf design, even if its head is a litte big.
Nice selection of brown and tan. The new olive colored leaves gives a nice variety of foliage.
€0.08 per piece. Nuff said.
Total: 37/40 recommended
