Thanks to BrickFair Alabama and some other things, we're a little behind in our set reviews, but not for long! Today Forum Mentor Gatanui takes a look at 44003 Scarox, one of the new Hero Factory villains. Should you welcome him into your home or keep this brainwashed monster as far away from you as possible? You'll have to read on to find out!

Thanks for the review Gata!So far, Scarox is my favourite villain from the winter line of Brain Attack. He just looks so good, the short arms don't bother me that much and he generally looks great. :3Thanks again Gata.

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.

Great review, Gatanui. In terms of the pieces HF sets come with, Scarox comes with some of the best. The pieces come with great colors and great MOCing potential. I still don't get what the back of the packaging meant by the flipping feature though.

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!

Has anyone found a way to make Scarox's head look decent without the slug?

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.

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.
