Minifigures.com Gamma Scientist Review

Some of the starring minifigures from our forthcoming “Hulk Transformation”

Hello and welcome to the CUSTOM Gamma Scientist Minifigure review! He is based on Bruce Banner, the scientist in Marvel that turns into the Incredible Hulk, the ‘ big green guy ‘ as known by Iron Man. We wanted him because he is a lot like Banner, and we are making an animation of the transformation from minifigure to Hulk. But the figure from minifigures.com didn’t look exactly like we needed, so we asked them make us a custom version to our specifications, including purple trousers and black hair. He arrived today, along with a ‘ Mr Invisible ‘ figure (as seen below, or not as the case may be!)

He has a double sided head, with one of them showing a sad face with midnight shadow, the other showing an infuriated face, a gamma – infected eye, and a gamma – infected scar. His hairpiece is a normal short black one with a fringe. He has a rip on the back of his torso, a broken belt on his waist, a green arm, and rips on the front of his torso and on his right leg. He is truly an amazing figure and there is a non – custom version of him at Mini figures .com if you want one.

Good thing he has his back to us!

He will be featured in our Hulk transformation animation, which we will start working on soon, so check back soon to hear more about it! For more cool figures, go to Minifigures.com and to see some awesome animations, go to the ‘studio’ section on this website!

Imperial Troop Transport review

IMG_5749

Today I’m here to review a Lego set from Star Wars Rebels called Imperial Troop Transport. I’m glad to say that it’s quite interesting.  The first good thing is that two Stormtroopers (the set comes with four) have new faces, with the other two having a face from previous sets. This is good because it gives new expressions that the Stormtroopers haven’t had. Check out the photo below to see the difference in the two faces.

Check out the different faces!

Next good thing is that the Stormtrooper’s flick-fire missiles on top of the transport are cool because their launcher is able to rotate 360 degrees so you can take down multiple enemies in any direction. These nicely compliment the flick-fire blasters that comes with each Stormtrooper, while an ammunition box that slides neatly in and out the transporter contains the extra see-through dark red studs that can be fired from their blasters.

Despite the fact that there is one space inside the transport for each Stormtrooper to stand in whilst being transported, also allowing them to still carry their  blasters, with doors that move up or down to secure the Troopers in, my only criticism is that there could be more room in the transport for a driver and more Troops. If I could improve this set I would make the transport bigger and put in more stormtroopers because no war would be won with four!

Overall, it was a fun and easy build, with simple instructions, leaving you with a strong, fun build that I’m sure your kids would love to play with.
