    Toy Fair 2014: Ultra Agents
    Hot Bionicle NewsWednesday, February 19th, 2014 at 1:31pm by Andrew, BZPower News Manager

    Today we're looking at the new Ultra Agents line as part of our Toy Fair 2014 coverage. Continuing the legacy of themes like Agents and Alpha Team, the Ultra Agents have to use cool technology and spy-skills to defeat a variety of supervillains. Read on to check out the awesome sets and see what the theme has to offer!

    Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 01

    70160 Riverside Raid

    Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 13 Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 14 Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 15

    88 pieces. Age 7+.
    $11.99 (USD) $15.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    While this is a really simple set, it makes up for it with an awesome minifigure. Who doesn't want a transparent green minifig head? The other fig is cool too, with the loosened tie and wavy hair he looks like the junior agent on the team. You also get two of the new guns, which is cool.

    70161 Tremor Track Infiltration

    Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 16 Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 17 Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 18 Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 19

    The agent in this set has a cool hi-tech body armor print and a shield, but the badguy is the highlight here. He has an awesome helmet, armor, and gloves that look like they might be all new. His vehicle is pretty sweet too, with some nice brick-built fists and cool treads. I think it's a pretty sweet looking model.

    70162 Infearno Interception

    Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 20 Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 21 Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 22

    313 pieces. Age 8+.

    This is probably my favorite of the Ultra Agents set, and I suspect that sentiment will be shared by many. It looks essentially like a light-cycle from Tron, except with more wheels. Oh, and the wheels rotate and turn it into a hovercar. LEGO has a thing for trans-blue this year, and it's beautiful in this set. Oh, and we haven't even touched Infearno, who has a new head piece that makes it look like his head is ON FIRE. I can see all the Human Torch fans cheering. Also, his backpack with flamethrowers is pretty sweet. All in all a great set.

    70163 Toxikita's Toxic Meltdown

    Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 23 Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 24 Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 25 Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 26

    429 pieces. Age 8+.

    'Toxikita' is a bit of a mouthful, but it's a pretty solid set. The helicopter definitely captures a 'hazardous waste' look with the yellow and trans-neon green pieces. The little lab is a nice addition and I like the robot that appears to be handling nuclear material. The minifigs are cool too - I like the white hazard suit and the agent's torso print, shield, and nightvision goggles. Toxikita has an interesting print too, although reusing it may be a bit of a challenge.

    70164 Hurricane Heist

    Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 07 Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 08 Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 09 Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 10 Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 11 Toy Fair 2014 Ultra Agents 12

    This set is a great source of olive green parts, if that's your thing. I do like that it converts from a flying machine to a walker, but otherwise I'm not a fan of the shape - that's just me though. I think my favorite parts are the villain (especially his helmet) and the motorcycle.

    The biggest Ultra Agents set is a pretty impressive model with a lot of nice details. It's impressive to see just how many details they crammed into the back of the tractor trailer - giving it a lot of play features. The villain's mech is cool too, featuring some Hero Factory parts. The minifigs are all top notch, like the rest of the wave, making this a very tempting set.

    It's great to see LEGO putting out such a high-quality theme that's not licensed or a 'big bang,' and I like the look of the Ultra Agents a lot. If you enjoyed our look at this theme, be sure to check out the rest of our Toy Fair 2014 coverage. And be sure to let us know what themes you'd like to see next, right here on BZPower!
