Hero Factory Breakout review #12: XT4
Hi Guys, I am here reviewing the second set in the Breakout part 2 series; XT4! This is set #6229, and it contains 39 pieces, the same amount as Nex. So this is gonna be a small set...
About this creation
Ok, so let's take a loot at the pieces:

Two very long upper limb pieces in grey. Seen only once before in Rocka XL.
Four regular length lower limb pieces in black.
One of the shortest Lower limb pieces.
One weird connector piece seen in Waspix. Good for Multi-arm characters. :D
EIGHT Upper limb pieces in grey!! Before this line, we only ever got one of these pieces!
One grey simple connector peice (Used as hands in Bionicle)
Two yellow Ben 10 (Boo!) feet.
XT4's Head!!!
And I've saved the best for last....

A SUPER TINY TORSO PIECE! AWW, So cute!!! I can think of a trillion uses for that! I'm so exited!

Only six armour pieces for this guy.... Looks like this guy won't be too beefy.
Four sise 3 armour pieces in yellow.
Two sise 6 armour pieces in black.

And lots of Technic/random pieces, including a rotating saw thing, two savage planet claws in black, two silver savage planet spikes, one trans red antena, two black wires and other stuff.

That's the pieces done, so lets start bulding:





It's Ok, i guess...

It's bare on the back, although the arm connection pieces make armouring up the back tricky, so I can understand why this guy is not armoured on the back.

I must admit, I'm not too fond of the way the torso was done. Maybe Lego should have used the sise four piece to cover up the body a bit more. And I think the set'd be better off without all the wires on it, because it limits poseability, and it makes some poses look awqward.

Most people don't like this head too much, but I'm not so against it. I see what they were trying to do, and I think it worked out alright. I think other people would like it more if it wasn't so long, and more round, but I personally like it. I must admit that I was a tad dissapointed with the fact that it's all one piece (I was hoping that It'd work like Meltdowns, which would have made it easier to use it in MOC making as something other than a head), but It doesn't irk me that much.

I personally like the way that the claw worked, It looks more like a claw than i thought it would. I don't really have anymore to say...

One thing that dissapointed me about the limbs is that they're all jumbled up. It'd look better if the spikes were on the top and the other weapons on the bottom. But, it's not a big deal. I'm also not too fond of the fact that there's so little armour. But I understand that Lego were trying to do a spider-like look. That would have worked better if the arms were longer. It would make XT4 look more like a spider, and important, he would look more imtimidating, which is what it says in his bio. ("He is not considered to be popular among villains. Some have been known to call him Pink Eye. But not to his face. That would be pretty stupid.")


Okay, so I'm gonna rate it under three different subheadings: Astethics, Build(Including designs and pieces uses) and Suiting the character. Each subheading is out of five. So here's XT4's results:

Astethics:
3/5

Build:
2/5

Suiting of character:
3/5

Total:
8/15

That's all folks! Hope this helped!

Quoting ROBOCOP603 MASTER OF BLACK HOLES I have got to get me several of these guys, just for that mini HF torso skeleton piece! I could make chibis so much easier with that thing! Mabye I could find sellers on bricklink that have it. What is the serial # for the part [It's in the part inventory page of the instrucion booklet.]?
The serial number for the chibi torso is 4667277

Quoting Ahpolki Ihu At lest it's a nice change from the usual humaniod sets. Isn't he a drone or worker, though? Might explain his unusual arrangement of gear.
I dunno, I don't think they explained his backstory. I think they jumbled them up to make him look like he has more weapons.

Quoting Marko Petrusic Like always, a great review. I'm thinking of getting XT4 mainly because of that tiny torso piece, but I'm not that certain. Hoping to see more reviews soon :)
Thanks :D Wanna join me on Neat Chat? http://www.neatchat.com/?id=6fa0aa1164bccb8a00aed91736d4d210
