Click.

Heroes are meh -- liking the new identity plates and helmets, good supply of new pieces, but as sets, meh.
The red... thing offends me.
Witch Doctor is pretty good, loving the head.
Fangz is okay.
Scorpio is a bad Scorponok rip off.
Rocka XL is a little too similar to Fire Lord for my liking.
Waspix is absolute love. This is how Gorast should have been. (Ignoring the colour differences, of course.)

The whole totally-balljoint armor system, at least in tandem with the totally-rod accessory system, seems silly to me.

And what do I care about Rocka XL's construction, I'd buy him for parts. *shrug*

Guess that's all I'll say for now... those are the main things I care about from my glancing through yesterday.

The ball joint armour makes for easier construction for younger fans, and opens up some interesting MoCing possibilities. I have already begun experimenting and can safely say that it works much better than one would think at first glance.

Totally with you on Rocka XL.

I don't know about it making construction easier. It could be interesting for MOCing, though. I guess. :P

In other news, the new feet seem awfully large.

Well, you do not have to mess about with a lot of pins and axels, so it does simplify the construction process considerably.

In other news, the new feet are just awful.

The thing is, though, you have to "mess about" with snapping them on (or off) the central balljoint on those limb pieces. :P It's not exactly hard to do so. But also the ball-socket armor also has less versatility in more Technic-oriented sets and stuff.

They're not the most awful feet, actually. At least not for length. That prize might go to the Pridak feet or something. :P

Awesome amount of new pieces and such, very good for Rahi.

WITCH DOCTOR IS LOVE. Heart

Gold is cool, Heroes are interesting, love Waspix. :D

Yeah, I'm actually surprised at how good Witch Doctor is.

Waspix's head is pretty weird, though, with the eyeless eyes... or whatever. :P

I know, right? I was thinking along those lines too. :P

Same with Scorpio or whatever it's called. Lots of eyeless invertebrate sets.

We ask for something different, and when we get it, we complain. It is actually kind of funny. :P

Hey, I'm not complaining about anything else. :P Just the weird eyelessness of the Waspix/Scorpio and Rotor/Vapor heads.

It's kind of neat that they brought Stringer back. At least we have a black set in Hero Factory... that's a color I look forward to, usually.

Whatever. :P

I use black a lot too. I am also thinking of using the head from Fangz to make a custom Crast, but I would need a decent back view to know if it will work.

I don't know about Fangz's mask for a Crast. Suspect Plus, there is a Black Crast out there. But anyway I'm glad they're finally starting to use some of the parts from Ben 10 sets that I like, like the hands and feet.

The black Crast is a prototype piece, which -to my knowledge- there is only one of. If you can get a hold of and sell it to me, sure I would use it.

Besides, the Makuta shapeshift their masks to make them more intimidating. The head from Fangz is sleek, and animalistic and has fangs. All I need t odo is add the crest.

As far as I know, there is at least one or two Black Crast, as well as at least one or two PearlDarkGray Crast. *shrug* And sure, the Makuta can shapeshift, I was just wondering why you would choose that strange fanged helmet. :P

Anyway, the new rounded sockets that they used to connect the armor pieces kind of look strange to me... not bad or anything, just a little different from any socket I'm used to, even those Ben 10 ones.

As I said, get hold of one for me and I shall gladly use it. :P

I think that the new sockets are to stop the armour from flopping about. Or I could be way off. Probably the latter.

Dude, you could have gotten yourself the one on eBay a few months ago. :P I can't do everything for your collection.

Yeah, the new sockets seem... I don't know, just rounder. I don't think that would really help with the armor moving around, but I'll have to get a better look.

Well you are obliged to help whenever and wherever possible. :P

*Sykura is confused* Perhaps you could post an explanatory image of sorts?

Well, apparently every piece (not just the armor) uses these funny rounded sockets now. Neutral

Oh I see. Probably just a slight change, like when they went square and filled in the holes back in 2008.

Iraemancer, do try to pay attention to the topic at hand. Not Amused[/archaic]

Sykura, yeah, probably. It just makes it look even less like LEGO, and kind of wasn't necessary. :P

That ain't gonna happen.

Which means LEGO has to make a new mould, which means they have to charge more money (more than is needed) as they are a business afterall.

Think about it, though. They didn't have to change EVERY SINGLE PIECE, people would buy it even if the basic sockets were the same type. In fact, they'd make MORE money if they left the most basic stuff alone, 'cause they wouldn't have to make a new mold for everything. See? :P
