Hello People, Wertman 8 on the line reviewing a smaller Villain set: THORNRAXX! Thornraxx is a compleatly new character described as a particulary nasty Villain from a particulary nasty race of giant insects. Lego Did not bother to come up with a back story, and just says: "The exploits that landed him in Hero Factory’s villain containment facility are classified, but witnesses all agreed they would be watching the skies for the rest of their lives." So lets get on with this Review!!
About this creation

SO lets have a look at new pieces: We have an interesting mask for him (used later on Black Phantom's Arachnix drone) and some Raw Jaw tusks coloured in black.

There are shorter Glatorian gun pieces used, a "5 long" armour piece in orange (I don't think we have had that before) and Orange Shark teeth pieces first seen in Black or white in Atlantis.

And we have new gray and "Baby Blue" coloured bone pieces.

Ok, so here we have Thornraxx the Savage planet pieces used for his shoulders and neck made me feel unconfortable at first, but i now feel better about them. A nice looking set, exept that I don't like the mix of black, orange and that light blue. any two of them would have worked nicely, but the idea of two bright colours that are compleatly different from eachother placed with the black doesn't look nice.

It's nice to see the Gorast wings again, but i don't like that bare hole piece sticking up from the back. I think that It should have been covered up better, but oh well.

As a toy, i think it could have been better. For the thing to stand on it's own, the stinger has to be placed on the floor like a leg. This limits the use of his stinger. The good thing is that the gun on his jaw still gives him a weapon to fight with. So this Toy is more for look than play. This Set is the only one in the line without the standard body. It is custom yays!

Thornraxx is ment to go up against Breez in the story, WHICH HAS NOT BEEN MENTIONED AT ALL ON THE WEBSITE!!!! I guess they are gonna take Them out of the little film they do for Nikelodian.

So thats it from me. the ratio from good to bad is 2:5. So i don't like this set too much. See ya next time with Furno!

Quoting Draconic ~ Do you think that the technic hole on his back is so that you can hang it on a string? its just the sort of thing LEGO would do.
I don't think so, but that sounds like a clever display idea...

Quoting Ben Cossy As far as I know that Orange armour piece is new, but those larger spikes in Orange aren't, we got them in that white Ninjago dragon set. Anyway I agree with you on some points with him, however as I do with all HF sets I'll just be getting him for pieces so :P Anyway I recon he looks pretty cool :D Great review man ;)
oh...

Quoting Demontile the Demon god of Darkness and ? I have never even seen the HF4.0 in stores but i knew about them way back.and i knew what they would look like
yep. it all depends on where you live (the closer to Denmark you are, the quicker you will get them, i guess)

Quoting Chronos Omega I actually like the color scheme, it's really just a variation of a standard orange and blue scheme. But oh well. Also, if you don't mind me asking, where do you live? In the US Breez and Thornraxx are supposedly out in some places, but I haven't seen them anywhere.
I live in the UK. they all came out a couple of days before New Years eve. And I think that Black and blue, or black and orange or BLue and orange would of worked out but the three of them makes me feel unconfortable.
