Welcome to the fourth of five reviews of the new Chima Legend Beasts. Today I turn my attention to the wolf which is of course another quadruped and thus likely to be packed with the new micro joints.
When I first saw the picture on the box I thought that this might be one set to buy multiples of because the wolf is light grey, and that's one of the more useful colours for MOCing.
However, I was quite shocked when I opened the box to find it full of white pieces, it certainly didn't look white on the box as you'll see after the break.
See what I mean? I can see that the bricks are lighter than the minifig, which is light grey but they don't look white, do they?
The minifig is Worriz who I don't think has adorned gold shoulder pads before. The weapon is new to me, but it might be in some of the 2013 Wolf sets, I don't have them all.
As predicted there are plenty of the new joints, in fact one more than shown because I found a couple more after I had photographed them. The bracket is relatively new, older versions were two bricks high.
The completed beast looks suitably ferocious and the joints provide the limbs with a lot of movement allowing the animal to be posed naturally.
But he's actually a bit of a softie and will roll over to have his tummy tickled :)
This side view shows what a great job the designer has done in capturing the look of the wolf. It could form the basis for making a model of your own pet, minus the spikes of course.
Worriz sits on the back quite comfortably with his shield.
So, despite me expecting the wolf to be grey, I was not disappointed with this Beast. Like the others, it's well designed and full of useful parts, and the price, £8, can't be faulted.
