Today I will be looking at 44006 Breez, one of the smaller sets of this wave. Is this set worth the money? Read on to find out!
The bag displays great artwork of Breez with the Brains surrounding her. The bag is mainly green. It also shows that the code gives you 400 Game Points for the Brain Attack game on HeroFactory.com. It notes the piece count (49) and the ages recommended (6-12)
The back shows the legal disclaimers and more about the Brain Attack game. It also shows the combiner model for Breez and Ogrum. It demonstrates the visor going up and down, as well as the spinning saw shield.
There are some new elements included in the set. The new chestplate has a place for the Hero Core and 4 areas where the claw-like things can be attached.
The new head definetly proves interesting, as an axle can connect to the front. It also WON'T BREAK!! I bet MOCists will go goo-goo over this. The new, transparent visor can attach to the back of the new head. Sadly, it won't work with many of the helmets, and is not compatible with the older heads either. Shame. But, small loss.
The helmet is a modified version of Breez's original mold.
The build is mainly like any other Hero, but with some new aspects. Making the Bow Staff was kinda interesting. It is hard to get the claws on the chestplate into the right position though. All in all, a pretty basic build like usual.
This set is fun to play with, as it can preform many poses. The saw shield provides for various uses and ways to play. Strange... both this and the 2.0 Breez have a saw weapon of some kind. Eh, whatever. The Bow Staff can split into two, which can be fun for playing. It also doesn't have any irritating launchers, so that is good.
On this set, even though it has so many random colors, it just... works.
Breez's shield can go on her back. Unlike with Rocka and Bulk, it actually looks good. It doesn't stick out too much from the back like the other heroes. Makes for good fun during play. Its kinda like how in 2.0, the heroes shields could go on their back in the show (Sadly the sets never had that feature) This figure is definetly made to look like an actual girl, unlike the Breakout one. Not to mention... NON-CRACKING HEAD! WOOHOO!
Natalie looks good with her former variants as well. However, her newest upgrade is smaller than her Breakout armor, as well as less armed. That is good, because she isn't over-bulky and over-equipped with weaponary. She looks feminine this time around. And they released her on time.
All in all, 44006 Breez is a very interesting set, with a few new parts and many recolors. It is definetly one of the better sets of this wave. Bulk doesn't have much bulk, and Rocka, well... I don't have a general gripe over him, but Breez is easily the best in my opinion. Not too big, not too small.
- New elements and recolors
- Great color scheme
- Interesting weapons
- Not over-bulky
- NON-CRACKING HEAD!
- Uh.. well, there's... no...
- I... got nothing
We all know how Breez can talk to virtually any animal. Giddy up, little Scorpio!
So, thanks for looking at my review. I intend to do more of these, so is there anything I should improve? Any comments? Just post them below. And I intend to get better quality images in the future. I took these using and IPod Touch. Anyway, thanks for watching!
