    VBBN Reviews: Natalie Breez

    Post  VBBN on Sun Jul 11, 2010 6:31 pm

    Welcome one and all, to yet another review by VBBN! Earlier in the Week I reviewed Mark Surge, so be sure and check out that review if you ahven't already!
    http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=43917
    Now then, Today I will be reviewing the second of the Rookie Team, natalie Breez. Personally, I like Breez best out of the Rookie team members. And I have the other 4 heros on the way, so look for those reviews soon! Anyways, enjoy the review!

    Set name: Natalie BREEZ
    Set Number: 7165
    Price: 7.99$, 9,99 Euro
    Pieces: 19
    Year of release: 2010


    The Canister

    Front

    Pretty much the same as .Surge. It shows Breez standing in a heroic position, with the small lable saying "From the makers of BIONICLE Products" as well as Hero Factory and the set information in various other places.


    Side

    Just like the other Heros, the left side of the canister has the Hero's Name and a small image of them. This is really useful if you have them all stacked next to eachother.


    Back

    Breez is shown fighting Thunder, once of the villans. Also, many saftey warning and such..



    Contents

    Parts

    Spilling them out of the canister reveals a plethora of interesting new pieces. Now I reviewed many of these new pieces in my review of Mark Surge, so please check out that review for in depth analysis of the new pieces.

    Old Parts

    We have the Glatorian hands in lime green, as well as the Glatorian head in trans-neon-orange.

    Leg armor and feet

    The new leg armor and feet, this time in Lime green. I have to say,such large pieces in the shiney lime green is very bright and fresh for this set.

    Torso and Core

    The chest armor is the exact same as Surge's as all Rookie team members have the same armor. Her hero core is trans red. Again, its strange because the head piece is Neon Orange. It was confusing at first, because the canister shows it as being Neon Orange.

    Mask and weapons

    First of all, her mask. Its my favorite of the Rookie team's masks. It really makes me think of Lewa Nuva, as it has lots of little fins and such coming out of it. Like all the other masks it has a camera and microphone molded into it. The weapons are Boomerangs,and like all of the Rookie team weapons, have a variety of configurations you can put them into, but I have pics of that later in the review. I would be careful with them though, the green part is a very soft plastic, like the red parts on Pridak's weapons, bit the three prongs that connect the green part to the silver part are VERY thin, about the thickness of two 3x5 cards. The softness helps avoid breakage, but I'd still be careful with it if I were you.

    Limbs

    This time around, we get the new limbs in black. A very useful color for MOCing, plus it compliments the torso piece.

    Buliding

    Start

    Unlike Surge, Natalie's color scheme is a bit more unified due to the black limbs, which really help make the torso seem less out of place.

    Our core makes us who we are...


    Finished

    Hoorah!

    Finished Set

    Other Weapon Configurations


    Besides the normal configuration, here are two others I found. Wings and a crossbow type of thing.

    Bonus Images

    New Avatar image

    My sigfig and his new buddies(man I really need to touchup the silver on my armor...)

    Where's Furno?



    Overall, Natalie Breez is defininatly my favorite of the Rookie team, closely followed up by Surge. Her design is very sleek and awesome, and she has the best colors of the 3 members.

    Colors scheme- 9.5/10 (The red hero core looks somewhat out of place with the eyes.)
    Parts- 9/10 (I still knock one off for her having only 19 parts, but the amount of new ones really makes up for it)
    Design- 10/10 (Fantastic Looking)
    Articulation- 8/10 (A lack of knees and elbows is still a major issue, especially since we saw so many of the limbs bent in the images of these guys.
    Quality- 9/10 (Not sure about those weapons thickness.)

    Overall: 45.5/50 Excellent

    As always, questions,comments, and pic requests welcome!
