The concept is genius (of course!). Take my latest exoskeleton prototype and
thread through it the scourge power of my nemesiss anathema: kryptonite!|
Ill have the power to crush the Man of Steel like tinfoil. The next
effortless step will be to create a catastrophe of sufficient threat to induce
the caped simpleton into an arena of death. . .
This is just a brief review because there isnt much more to the set than the
three figures and Power suit, but the purchase is worthy for a couple of
Kit includes the three figures (Wonder Woman, Superman, Lex Luthor) and I found
it interesting that I couldnt tell which head went on whom for Superman/Lex.
They both have pretty much the same stern expression and nothing else
distinguishes them except a slight smirk. I figured the smirk was for the
villain but in reviewing the packaging for the set, the smirk-head goes on Supes
(whatcha gonna do?). The only accessory was the golden lasso for Wonder Woman
(cause Lex just isnt a pistol-waving kinda guy unless his backs against a
wall and hes losing it).
For me, the main attraction of the set was the Power suit and its a very good
design. Kept to a minimum of cool colors (green and purple) the design easily
conveys the concept of drawing power from kryptonite crystal that then feeds
into the suit (there are a couple of dome-encased energy orbs and finger claws
glow green) and a laser rifle. I really like the sci-fi driven concept and its
well executed in a streamline design.
While kept to a minimum of pieces, the
suit is still very poseable and menacing. Suit features fingers on each hand
but in addition the gun includes a technic pin that fits into the wrist of the
hand to further stabilize grip on the gun.
Lex isnt fully enclosed in the
armor (gaps around the cockpit shell), meaning if Supes put his mind to it he
could really set Lexs biscuits to burnin with a small dose of heat vision but
this is a minor quibble.
The set only cost $20 for a good assortment of 207 pieces featuring three
figures which is a pretty good deal considering the value of collectible
minifigure these days.

Rating: Six out of eight studs
Pros: Three collectible figures and a great power suit/mech construction.
Cons: Very minor complaint that I prefer click/rotation over the ball/socket
joins in this set (though the ball/sockets do provide for easy posing).
Walletwise: 207 pieces for around $20 makes a great starter/intro set for the
new superhero lineup.
