I don't disagree that the parts are great--I already mentioned that.But part of the problem with me is that they really don't look anything like the characters they're meant to represent. Eris doesn't look anything like Eris (It could pass for Ewar or Equila?), and I do not think the things you mentioned make her at all feminine. Cragger has much sleeker arms and legs, really. Gorzan looks okay, but it really doesn't look anything like Gorzan (Gorzan has no gold. Anywhere. Or the visor thing. Where's his blue?), and they didn't even try to fix the drastic difference in width on the chest like the Hulk set did. Laval...has a beard? Cragger is scrawny as all things ever, and I don't think he has his distinctive blank right eye. Worriz doesn't have his differently colored muzzle, which is one of the things unique to him among the wolves. As I already said, I really like how Razar looks, but he doesn't really look like Razar. His red mask thing isn't present, and he doesn't even have his hook hand. None of these ultrabuilds really look at all like the characters they are, instead looking like some random animal.And although I know most of the things I mentioned sound like nitpicks, there are few things really distinguishing characters of the same tribe in Chima. And when you take something as distinguishing as a missing hand from a character. Well. Then he's no longer that character.Either way, I'm much more interested in the system summer sets, and they're all going to be kind of expensive soo. I probably wouldn't buy any ultrabuilds even if they were better. That said, Razar may convince me eventually. Because ravens.
