    Who doesn't love constraction sets? Since you're here, I'm guessing not you. Forum Assistant Sisen sure thinks they're swell, which is why he has reviewed 70204 Worriz, the powered-up wolf from the Legends of Chima line. Is this set worth you making the effort to pick it up off a store shelf? Read on to find out!

    From the design of the box to the instruction manual, these are the first things you see before building the set.

    Waaaaawr. Worriz. Worry. Worrfy. The Chima Wolf Man is a fearsome sight to behold on the packaging, sporting his massive blade and spinning saw shield. With such a scary appearance it is no wonder the age range is recommended for six year olds and up. Who am I kidding there might still be nightmares involved.

    Half the fun is had building the set. How fun is it to build and how easy or challenging is it?

    Putting together Mr. Fenrir is quite a risky task. One scratch, knick, or bite could likely leave you a lycanthrope. Wait no that is not the way it works. Building the set is fairly straightforward, everything minus the base black torso comes bagged ready to be torn open.

    After building a few different Hero Factory sets the baseline construction of the new Chima sets are fairly similar. The joints snap in and you apply the armor. Worriz gets ample armor coverage though, and some nice add-ons that snap in place.

    Set Design
    Now that the set is complete, we can critique how it looks from every angle. New or interesting pieces can also be examined here.

    Worrfy has a nice robust design. The gray and red color scheme works together for a nice contrast. With frightening red eyes like his it is hard to not cower away. Overall the set design is solid. There is enough armor to cover his body.

    The addition of the hand plates and claws makes a wonderful rendition of a wolf-like character. The design of the head mold for Worrfy is really detailed and nice. Overall the new pieces for his fur armor are astounding. There are a couple other new unique pieces in the set that are going to be useful for constructing different ways.

    The other half of the fun is in playing with the set. How well does the set function and is it enjoyable to play with?

    There is a lot of playability with Worrfy despite his ill-mannered urge to constantly bite. It is hard to accurately describe and capture how playable the set is.

    To me Worrfy seems like the type of fighter to hold his blade in a non-traditional position and strike differently.

    I see the bad moon arising, I see trouble on the way.

    I have claws! This sword is big and heavy.

    Paint me like one of your French Chima.

    Final Thoughts
    Once it's all said and done, how does the set stack up? Should I get it?

    What's to like?

    • Decent color scheme.
    • Character design.
    • Use of pieces.
    • Maneuverability.
    • Lions... They're so delicious.

    What's not to like?

    • Not a lot of new pieces.
    • Lack of fur. More armor attachments would have been nice.

    Worrfy is capable of honing his blade and keeping it polished in the wake of battle. Overall the Chima sets and Worriz particularly give a nice change of pace to the Hero type sets that have been delivered to the fanbase.
