I also made him look more bulky and gave him a tail and a longer trunk. http://www.brickshel...s/mungus001.jpg http://www.brickshel...s/mungus002.jpg http://www.brickshel...s/mungus003.jpg http://www.brickshel...s/mungus004.jpg http://www.brickshel...s/mungus005.jpg I had originally wanted to use Humongousaur's arm for a trunk for Mungus but it didn't look to good. Here is a picture of him with it though just to show how bad it looked. http://www.brickshel...s/mungus006.jpg Last up is Chi Razar His changes are giving him his hook hand. More purple. Bigger wings and a tail along with using Shadow Matoran feet for his talons. http://www.brickshel...ds/razar001.jpg http://www.brickshel...ds/razar002.jpg http://www.brickshel...ds/razar003.jpg http://www.brickshel...ds/razar004.jpg http://www.brickshel...ds/razar005.jpg http://www.brickshel...ds/razar006.jpg I had also made mods of all the other sets in LDD but do to a lack of the Chima Ultrabuild heads and chestplates. I'll only post the LXF files if you really want them. Comments and criticism appreciated
Here is my another review from the new Chima set line, this time I’ll be reviewing Scorm’s Scorpion Stinger (quite the alliteration), I hope you will enjoy it and helps you get a thorough view of the set. Set Information Set Number: 70132 Pieces: 434 Minifigures: 3 Price: £34.99 / US$39.99 / EUR 39.99 / 11990 HUF Age range: 8-14 Set Description Avoid the poison balls launched by Scorm’s Scorpion Stinger! Scorm, King of Scorpions, has stolen some CHI and the other tribes are determined to get it back. But first they must avoid the massive poisonous claws and mouth of Scorm’s speedy tri-wheel Scorpion Stinger. Help the armored tribal warriors Cragger and Laval to attack with their Scale Ripper and Shado Valious sword and steer clear of poison balls fired into their path. Beware of the Stinger’s flexible stinging tail jabbing down and escape with the CHI! Includes 3 minifigures with assorted weapons and accessories: Scorm, and Laval and Cragger in their new armor. Includes 3 minifigures with assorted weapons and accessories: Scorm, and Laval and Cragger in their new armor Features huge poisonous claws, biting mouth, opening and closing cockpit, flexible stinger with poison ball launcher, 2 poison ball ammunition cases, scorpion detailing and all-terrain wheels Weapons include Laval’s Shado Valious sword, Cragger’s Scale Ripper and Scorm’s Korrodor Accessories include new armor for Cragger and Laval plus a shield for Laval Grab minifigures in the Scorpion Stinger’s mouth Stow poison balls in the special holder Fire poison balls from the high-powered stinger launcher Pick up tribal warriors with the poisonous claws Knock attackers flying with the flexible stinger Speed away with the CHI Take the weapons off the Stinger and use as hand guns Grab and launch the CHI grenades from Laval’s backpack Measures over 5" (15cm) high, 12" (32cm) long and 11" (30cm) wide Box The box is quite large as it is one of the bigger sets from the new wave. This being the europian version only shows the set number, name and the age range. As you can see the Chima logo is new with bright lime green color and red spikes. Usually in the upper right corner we see the actual hero of the set but here Scorm’s head is presented with a shadowy look. The box shows Cragger and Laval running against a giant Scorpion car (are they crazy?) that is going to roll over them. The background is a foggy jungle. The back of the box is showing us the play functions described in 6 languages and shown in three boxes. There is another image which shows that Laval and Cragger is not so crazy after all and they flee from the Scorpion Stinger. And there is a picture which informs us that we get 5 Zamor spheres. Finally in the upper right corner we can see a Chima online game ad. On the top of the box we can see the 3 minifigs and Laval is shown is real 1:1 size. Content We get 4 numbered and one unnumbered bag, a DSS and two Instrucion booklets. The unnumbered bag contains the claws, Chi tubes and the rear wheel. There are really killer stickers here, they look insanely awesome and certainly add to the overall look. Minifigs First let’s start with the star of the set; Scorm, king of scorpions. He has a very detailed body printing, which looks a bit like a persian noble’s robe. The gold and black color scheme is very nice. Here he is with his unigue armor which comes only in this set, it looks wonderful and looks more like an ancient emperor here. His head is only one sided and the same as the other Scorions’. He is finished with a beatifully printed headpiece and a stinger tail. Look at that! Scorm also gets two guns which are named the Korrodors, they look great but compared to the fig they are too big. Here he is with my other Scorpion, Scutter I’m so loving these Scorpion figures! Note that the print on the headpieces is different! Now let’s move on to Laval, he comes with new printing as well, which looks really beautiful. There are so many detail on these tiny figs. He comes with a two sided head but since it’s not new, forgive me that I haven’t phtographed it. Now here he is with tons of accessories, note that his sword comes in black only in this set. Finally we have the Croc prince Cragger who made peace with Laval and they are besties again. His only new parts are the legs, which now have amazingly done crocheadkneepads. His torso is identical to Laval’s. He has a very neat bow-gun thingy. I really love the figs in this set, they all have new prints (some of them new parts) and have super accessories. Build Bags spilled, check. rare parts, check. I also encountered a piece which I haven’t seen, but after a little search I found out that it can be found in a few other sets as well. Let’s get on to the build, after bag 1 we have a strong mostly technic base and the 3 minifigures. With bag 2 we started to cover it and the Scorpion Stinger started to take shape. After bag 3 we have the scorpion head on the front and the cockpit. With bag 4 finished we add the pieces from the unnumbered bag as well and the ride is completed, Ta-daa! here is a shot of the spare parts, there is a galore of cheese slopes. The build was pretty straightforward with minimal repetition, my only problem is with TLG’s usual put-the-piece-here-and-after-you-can’t-access-it-put-a-sticker-on-it method… Other than that it was a nice relaxing build, with a few interesting techniques. The Set itself The Scorpion Stinger is a very unusual design. A 3 wheeled scorpion car. The designers made a great job recreating a scorpion shape. The head is very effective with the red diamond used for eyes, it’s one of my favorite parts on the vehicle. Here is a backshot showing the claw-moving mechanism. You have to push the dark-red plates and it opens the claws, and if you release it it closes, in this picture you can also see that there is plenty room here so Scorm can fit here easily with his stinger tail. Behind the cockpit there is a CHI crystal which provides energy for the vehicle. Now let me show the claw-opening function. et voilá! You can also place Scorm’s guns on the front. And with him finally in the cockpit, we can go and hunt some lion and croc meat. The Zamor acid spheres are stored. Dinner is prepared. Om-nom-nom Rating and Summary When I first saw images of this set I though it looked really bad, with the big rear wheel and just the whole concept wasn’t working for me. Then I checked a video review and came to really like the play functions and I just cama to like the look as well. Now it’s one of my favourite Chima vehicles, I really like scorpions and this vehicle resembles a scorpion very well. And there are the wonderful figs with their great weapons and accessories. I only can recommend this set, a very unusual design, great figs, fun play-functions and a reasonable price. Price 10/10 I don’t want to complain I got th eset 15% cheaper and it was totally worth it Parts 9/10 Rare and new parts, lots of useful pieces in great colors. Build 9/10 It was a smooth, straightforward build, I was expecing a bit more complexity and there is my issue with the sticker adding steps that I stated above. Minifigures 10/10 High quality figs, one of them is unique to this set, the rest have new printing and cool weapons. Playability 10/10 Claw-opening mechanism, ball shooter tail, the stinger tail is poseable (if you miss a step on purpose which locks the tail), the car can eat the intruders and the two fractions can fight, also the vehicle is sturdy and swooshable. Thanks for reading the review, hope you had a good time.
