Bear with me, people! this is the penultimate review of the season: and it's of Surge! Surge was one of the Rookies released in the first Hero Factory line. He his the energetic and enthuisiastic (but mainly corney) Hero. So lets get on with this very painful review!!!
About this creation
So lets take a look at these New pieces! First we have Surge's old Weapon (the one he first had) But coloured in BLUE instead of yellow! We have two lime green shorter bone pieces, a shorter Gunmetal Glatorian Gun piece and the new upper Gun Mold.
We have a blue chest piece, a white Hero Core (the core is a new mold), the Hero Cuffs and a gray single socket piece (Seen before in Bionicle, but this peice is slightly thicker.) All the rest we have seen before.
To be honest, i thought the idea of surge was cool, but this set is a fail. But i will say before i go on to the bad stuff, that i like the overall look of him. He may be smaller than some of the other heroes, but he still looks strong and tough. That's all the good stuff i can think of.
I do not like how the silver armour pieces stick up from his shoulders. I know what they were trying to do; make him look tough by having spikes coming out from his shoulders, but they just look out of place. I think they'd look better if the tips were pointing down.
I do not like how the lime and blue have been mixed together the way they have. I have never liked that colour scheme. It wasn't so bad on Surge 2.0, since it was used for his eyes and core. that was ok, but i do not like where it has been done here.
The Poseability of the toy is cool, but i do not like how the cuffs drag across the floor like it does. It feels lazy.
He goes off to fight SplitFace!
I'd give the toy a 2/5. so it's crap XD
I've saved the best to last....
stay tuned as i review the final set of the season.... BLACK PHANTOM!
