Thanks for the review, Gata!
Scarox looks great. I especially like the head. And, well, it has golden parts, which is always welcome to me if paired with black. Green doesn't clash in this set, IMO.

Nice review, Gata. I've gotten slightly less interested in Hero Factory this year, but I might get this set to increase my gold inventory, hopefully to make a gold MOC sometime soon.

Credits go to Strack for the awesome sprite.
I'm an Emerging Fluidic Master (again). Time to start working on my Waterbending.

I too have lost some interest in Hero Factory this year, i might not pick this set up because im not a big fan of gold. But thanks for the review! A really interesting set.

I think that this set could've used a few more gold pieces, especially for its torso. It still looks like a cool set though.
Thanks for the review Gata!

I really like this set from a looks perspective. Design wise. I don't like the function everything else is fine to me. But I plan on fixing that once I get back home to my parts.

I'm looking for an Inkay or Malamar with its event move Happy Hour. Pm if you have one I can borrow to breed and pass the move down so I can have an Inkay with the move for myself.

Interesting set, he looks pretty cool. If I ever get back into buying HF guys, I may check him out. Thanks for the review!

Gorast. Waspix. Now this...really?And Nui-Jaga, Visorak, Fenrakk, and probably a dozen other examples of BIONICLE arthropods. Turns out BIONICLE and Hero Factory alike are simply very good for building those kinds of things. I don't see how it's a problem to revisit the idea from time to time.Of course, if you're talking about four-armed sets in particular rather than arthropod-inspired sets, then you left out XT4 from the HF Breakout series and Spidermonkey from the Ben 10 Alien Force sets.

Probably the only set from this wave I'm looking to pick up. The Predator face with the fangs is incentive enough.
