Review 70000 Razcal's Glider.
Posted 26 December 2012 - 01:07 PM
Set Name: Razcal's Glider
Set Number: 70000
Number of Pieces: 109
List Price: £8.99
Let us begin with the box.
Flying through the air and not a care in the world.
The back shot shows an open box, sorry I was a tad excited!
Now for what’s inside.
The box was quite small but we seem to get quite a bit inside.
Again as with 70001 we get two instruction booklets, this is so Lego can give us a good number of adverts for Chima. Personally it seems pointless to me.
So this set Razcal one of the Raven faction and as with all the Chima sets we’ve seen so far he looks excellent.
So now lets arm Razcal with his oversized and weird looking weapons!
It’s a nice simple build with lots of small parts. One thing I want to point out is that by step five Lego feel the need to give us a break and advertise some Chima to us. I don’t know if they think kids are going to get bored but it seems odd to me!
A few more steps on and we come to the end of booklet one with the fuselage mostly completed. I might weird that the Ravens use bones for controllers but they are talking birds so who knows!
In booklet two we start work on the underside
Next attaching the legs, at this stage the model seems to high and lacks width and length, but the wings will take care of that
We’ve also added a reverse flick firing misile, but being attached to a chain I’m not sure what good it’ll do! I think it would just fly around and hit the glider. I’m not sure the Ravens will be winning this war!
So the final and completed model, not that Razcal has places to disassemble his oversized gun and mount them on the side of the glider.
The Rating System
Figures: 9/10 (Only one but fairly good.)
Parts 8/10 (Some interesting parts, including some purple but not an amazing set)
Fun Fun Fun 9/10 (Great fun posing and very swoshable)
Design 10/10 (An excellent design)
Price 8/10 (The price is high but better value than 70001.)
Grand Total 43/50 (A good sets but a way from greatness)
So this is the third review by me for Legends of Chima and this is another set I really like. The design is very well done and you can see the birdlikle qualities of the glider very clearly. We’ve got another excellent figure and a fun model to play with.
I would however like to raise a concerned with pricing. Not so much with this set but with others in the range. I was very tempted by 70012 as well while I was in the Lego shop today, I saw it listed as $39.99 on Lego.com though not available to buy. Looking at the UK price today I was outraged to see it at £39.99 all the sets of this size seems to be the same which is very disappointing to me. So I guess I’ll be waiting till my trip to the States or for the inevitable Amazon discounts to pick up any more Chima.

Such a nice little set, I almost picked this up in John Lewis the other day (£7.95), but stuck with Eris's Interceptor and Crawley's Ripper. Reckon I'll head back at the next opportunity and rectify that! ;)
The Raven Faction minifigs are awesome and I'll really impressed by how cool this glider is for a wee set. As WF mentions above, this'll be the perfect foil for the Eagle Interceptor!

Although... correct me if I'm wrong, but did LEGO just sell me a robot bird who's weapon is that it poops missiles?

Anyway, I managed to find a stock of 'em yesterday and picked one up. It doesn't disappoint and moreover provides a perfect army builder for the Raven faction. I'll very likely be picking up more of this one soon. :)
