LEGO Chima Eagle Legend Beast Review for MFZ

Original Review System by Mantis King

So it seems that Mantis King as tweaked his Review System to be more universal vs my breaking it down into three different paths so lets try that for a bit and see where it takes us, eh? (I might be digging FX's Fargo right now...)

Our Box
Can you build some sort of creation right away?

Well, yes yes you can. I built a frame which for the most part that I like and I squeezed two different spaceships out of it. I was disappointed with the first one I made so I tried my hand at going with a second one. Both have a rather Ijad feel to them which was my goal. +5 points

It is a tiny frame but I like the use of the claw for leg tips. Those could easily count as melee systems I think.

Yes, this is the front.

This is the first ship a built and I really didn't like it, it didn't have the feel or the look I was quite aiming for. If you can't tell I was trying to use the Axe head as some kind of escort ship for the ship that could counted as some kind of system.

Please ignore the yellow legs.

This is the second ship I built out of this seat and I am much more pleased with it. I which I could have figured out how to make it longer but I am using the wings the way I really wanted to this time. The yellow legs are not suppose to be there, I couldn't find my any of my LEGO pieces that make up my stand for 'flight' pictures so I had to figure something out.

Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio? (10 cents per part)

Math time, we have $9.99 divided by 105 parts to give us 10 cents per part. This meets the ratio which is surprising as the other sets of Legend Beast are below but it was close. Honestly if you kind find it for two cents less (Wal-Mart) then you might be under ratio. +0 points

If you can't build a creation right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away? 

If you look below there certainly several useful parts, be it frames or spaceships. I think this set is a bit down the middle about such things. +5

 Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?

Absolutely, the above statement sort of applies to this as well. +5

THE RATING: Our total (15 by the way) gives a A rating for this set with split focus on frames or spaceships I think though for a spaceship I think you might need to snag a few more parts depending on the size you will be aiming for.

Alright, now that we are done with that let's take a look at the bit more silly side and them some of my photo shooting.
