The 3.0 Heroes are still fighting the tainted animals on the Quaza planet, and today we'll look at the most fearsome beast on the prowl, Scorpio. With eight legs and a deadly tail, this monster is out to cause trouble for the Heroes, but is Scorpio worth adding to your own collection? Read the following review by xccj and find out.

In my opinion, Scorpio was a nice set. It's got a nice play-value, and is a very unique build. One thing that I noticed (but doesn't bother me too much), is that each row of legs is different. Overall, I say it's a great set! ;)

I really want to get this set for the lime pieces, but MTG and video games are taking too much of my money right now. Q_Q. Guess I'll wait til Breez 4.0 for more lime pieces.

Scorpio looks like an awesome set to have, and it looks like it has the motherload of the new system parts :D I'll be sure to get it if I can!

If you get a Hero Factory set, I'd say a nice start to the collection is Waspix, due to the nice parts in nice colors. Scorpio has a good deal of nice parts, many of which I can see a lot of uses for outside of Hero Factory, and some even outside of BIONICLE! I'd say that you should check some of the Savage Planet beast sets to start your Hero Factory collection.

Am I the only one thinking that Scorpio is a ripoff at 104 pieces/$25? I know its a great parts pack, but when you compare it with something like Fire Lord (125 pieces/$20) or Rocka XL(174 pieces/$25)... :unsure:

Scorpio is quite cool. He's really quite big, and is nicely detailed. If i had the cash, i'd buy 5 of him for MOCing parts. The only problem is that it takes about 2 minutes to get him into a cool pose after he's been dropped, shoved into a box, etc.

I'd like to get this set but I don't think I'll be able to since I'm saving up for other sets. :(Anyways, thanks for the review!

I already have this set, but it's still good to see a reveiw of it. Though 104 peces for nearly $30 American is a bit pricey. :unsure:

Why are orange and black such a good color Combination ? Purple is pretty, and so is blue. Pink hurts your eyes, green is quite mellowing, black is very threatning, red is cool, orange is SO awesome, yellow's hard to read... But you can't see white at all! Oh, wait. I forgot brown.

Here's my thoughts: If a person tells the truth and says, " I always lie," Is he lying? Or is he telling the truth? And what has a mouth, but no head, and a body, but no torso? Do caterpillars like to tend to supporting colum of stone's every need? Or is that name misleading by nature? Speaking of nature, why are the children of animals called offspring? don't many young beasts come alive in spring, and thus, should be called onspring? Heeeeeeyy..... I got the first post on a page for the first time. Who knows; it may happen again. What the... It did happen again... and again...

YEAH! I'M ENCOUNTERING PROTODERMIS!
