Review 70003 Eris' Eagle InterceptorSecond Legends of Chima revie
Posted 25 December 2012 - 04:00 PM
Second review in my Legends of Chima series, we’re going to look at Eagle Interceptor, which I think must be one of the sets everyone is waiting to see.
Set Name: Eris' Eagle Interceptor
Set Number: 70003
Number of Pieces: 348
List Price: £29.99
70003 Bricklink Catalog
Lets us begin with the box, which shows the set and really wetted my appetite to get hold of it.
I’m not sure about flying bits of land!
Again the back shows most of the play featur.
Now for what’s inside.
Three bag build, but only one instruction booklet.
Sticker set, shame they aren’t printed.
Single instruction booklet.
Some interesting parts to take a look at, the new sword is rather oversized and takes a lightsaber blade inside. Also new staff piece and headgear for the figures and bodywear.
So this set has three figures Edri, Rizzo and Razar. You get both the good Eagle faction and the bad Crow faction. Both sides look beautiful, I’ll stop yapping and show you the pictures.
Front without helmets.
Back and reverse of the heads.
Fully equipped from the front.
Fully equipped from the back.
This set includes two models a Crow minflyer (Hawkman rocket cycle Ed?) and the larger Eagle. So lets first take a look at the smaller of the two. Not much to say really not many parts used for this one but it does look very nice.
Now it’s time for the main event the Eagle Interceptor. First we get the cockpit which detatches and also looks like a beak.
Next we’ll add the main body which has a rather large cargo area nd a big engine at the top. The tail feathers look really good.
A few steps on.
Completed body module.
The back opened so you can see the power crystal and cargo area..
The first thing to say about the legs are they rest on new pieces (well new to me) printed tiles with studs on the back.
A rather simple build and then you add the sticker tile on top of complete the leg.
Finally just add some talons.
Attached to the body.
The wings are quite simple each one has a pair of blasters and a flick fire missile, well it wouldn’t be a play set without a flick fire missile would it!
You can’t see the missile from here.
You can from here.
Now with all the parts made I give you the Eagle Interceptor
The complete set.
The Rating System
Figures: 10/10 (Beautiful and a good selection)
Parts 9/10 (Some interesting new parts especially the head and the new colour)
Fun Fun Fun 10/10 (A swooshing battle to be had!)
Design 10/10 (An excellent design, looks amazing one of the best I’ve seen in ages)
Price 8/10 (It’s expensive but I really don’t care it’s that good.)
Grand Total 47/50 (A great set, if the price goes down I will be buying a second)
So this is the second Legends of Chima set I’ve got my hands on, while I had some reservations about the price of 70001 I’ve not got those concerned here. Lego have given us excellent figures and a model that I just love, while it is more than I’d like to pay when I sat back and looked at it I decided it was worth it.
I feel that the ground vehicles aren’t shaping up as well as the air ones as I want to get my hands on 70000 but I’m not so sure about the rest of the series. My advice would be that if you’re interested to take the plunge with this set you won’t be disappointed.
We’ll see as it develops. So over to you guys what do you think of this set?

I am not a big fan of mechs but those minifigure wings and those eagle minifigures...
