Combat Heroes Snake Eyes and Timber Review

I finally got Snake Eyes and Timber in the mail, so it only right that I review the set.
The new Combat Heroes line is nicely done. I like them just for the fact that they look goofy and bring a more humorous side to the G.I.Joe story.
As you can see I salvaged some of the packaging. This part makes a great display stand!

Snake Eyes is fairly nice the colors are much better than the colors that will come with the regular Snake Eyes in the 2-pack with Zartan and puppy Timber. Also the sword is different, looking more like a pirate's sword, than a ninja sword.
As for Timber. Very nice mold. His only point of articulation is at his neck. My mom says he looks like a cat.
Does he look like this to you!!!!
Here is a chart that shows Snakey's points of articulation.

He and Timber both have peg holes on their feet for attaching to some sort of stand. they can connect on to 25th stands.

Hope you liked the review. Please leave a comment, if did enjoy it.

Lego Agents Review: Mission 2 Swamp Raid

It has been awhile since I did review (1 year), so bear with me, okay?
Here is a pic of the mini-figs, Driver Agent Charge and and Break Jaw. Both are nice mini-figs, but both have one thing I don't like. Charge's flaw is the big, bushy eyebrows. While several Lego Fans like them, this one doesn't. As for Break Jaw, his helmet is kinda loose.
Break Jaw without helmet. While Charge's eyebrows take away from the figure, Break Jaw's uni brow doesn't. It gives him a more evil appearance.
The guns are nice pieces. It's about the packaging showed the characters using them. The holes are apparently so the guns will attach to the figures, probably with a special leg mold that wasn't put out.

Break Jaw's robotic crocs are okay. Not much to say, other than I don't play with 'em that much.
Break Jaw's boat is too small and weird looking. Nuff said.
Charge's motorcycle is nice, but rather large. But if Lego had made it smaller, it probably wouldn't be as good looking. All together, it is a nice piece. (or pieces.)

Break Jaw's swamp outpost is a LOT larger that you think. If you can afford the volcano base, this won't be any add-on to your collection, but for little kids who can buy this with their savings then they can use this as Inferno's home base.

Overall rating, 3 out of 5 stars.
Here's a quick dio I made.

Hope you liked the review. This and other Lego Agents sets can purchased here. I'll review mission 6 next week.
