LEGO Chima Lion Legend Beast Review for MFZ

Original Review System by Mantis King

The Box
So Chima Legend Beast Set Review week is being stretched out a bit...these things happen but lets push forward. In this review we move onto the Lion.

The Instructions
Can you build a frame or frames right away?
Most certainly you can, I made a quad o ped that looks like it should have a BIG old cannon on it. +5

The frame deserves a cannon
Can you build a spaceship or spaceships right away?
Yes I did and I think this one could be a frigate, most of my post stuff would be more HVAs. +5

I think these teeth pieces are great for engines.
Eat my space dust...
Can you build a piece of cover or a station right away?
You might be able to make a dirt or rock mound of it? +5

Is it below, at or above the golden ration? (10 pennies per piece)
Mathmaticious! $9.99 divided by 121 pieces equals 8 cents per piece so below equally plus 5 points.

Why is it in its own bag? Sort of Creepy...
If you can't build anything right away, does it have any useful pieces to be put in use?
This is yes to everything so +5 for all!

Does it have more then a handful of immediately useful parts?
I believe so yes, so plus 5.

Well let's keep this simple, we had +5 across all boards for a total  of +20 for everything giving everything an A+!

Now for some fun!

Here is the put together Lion, ROAR!
Not surprised, our Lion is bigger then a frame...
Oh no!

Show Addict: Captain America: Winter Soldier Review

So it been awhile since I did one of these. No reason to dwell though, time to get started!

First I just want to start of and say that I LOVE Marvel Studios. So far everything they do is fantastic and this movie is no exception. It connects to other elements of the franchise along with back to its own past making it great.

Everyone does a great job and the movie has everything. Action, emotions, drama, espionage, twists that I think everyone will enjoy it. There is even subtle details in the movie that if you notice them makes you think about things outside the scope of Winter Soldier and about the movies at large or just the characters themselves.

So in short, the movie should have something for everyone so go see Captain America: Winter Soldier; Captain's Orders!

P.S. Sit through all the credits! You think some people would have learned by now. Give me more GotG!
