Review: 2065 Furno 2.0 The one with nothing to prove any more

Set Index: Furno 2.0


When he first appeared, William Furno was a rookie with something to prove. He even had a motorbike. Now he's a geek with big glasses.


I bet he even sold his bike, afterall; how many geeks ride motorcycles? Nice canister photo though. Hopefully he'll turn around soon and notice the guy burning stuff.


Geek+muscles=shoulder launched missiles? I do like these combiners.


Parts list. Most LEGO sets don't look as impressive as a list of parts due to duplication...


...but I think this looks more appealing! Loads of the nice new HF parts.


The Heroes are built much the same for the first half; it's just a matter of what panel goes where.


They all use this part as a chest plate. The HF armour goes on top, with the Power core on top of that.


Most of these new parts look really solid; note in particular the corner braces. The center ball joint receptacle looks strong too.


All things considered, shouldn't this be Furno 3.0? Or was the bike version just 1.1? In any case it's a cool print.


All jokes aside, this is one of my favourite head piece. I like how his eyes are completely covered.


He's also one of the few that has possibilities of using it backwards.


Aside from the big glasses, he also has the gun-blade-thing that several other heroes have.


Overall I think he's one of the line highlights. He really highlights how different you can make a head look with an extra element.


Since the head is shown more with him than the other heroes, the complete mouth looks more like a grin! Very smart. Shame he has the shield...


From the rear he looks far less impressive. Since his panels are all front on he looks rather sparse.


Billy gets back to his roots and wears his hat backwards. Cool dude!

Ratings

Posability:
It's hard to complain about the posability of the heroes. All have elbows, knees, wrists and ankles. His shield weapon does make posing a bit harder though. 8/10

Parts:
He ain't heavy, he's a geek.... actually at 77 grams he's one of the "bigger" ones. I think he's one of the most appealing of the line due to his visor. 9/10

Looks:
He looks so different!.I can forgive the other flaws due to this. TLG has done some really smart things with this line. 9/10

Fudge:
As much as I like him, aside from the colour I don't see how this is the same character. 8/10

Overall:
Love your inner geek! 8/10

Thanks go out to TLG for this exciting new line.
