Set Name: Zombies Outbreak
# of Pieces: 75 pieces
Figures Included: 6
Non-Scalper Price: $12-$15 dollars
*One of the things I love about these sets is that each pack comes with lots of zombies. You get 6 fairly unique zombies with this set and most of the other sets released last year (this year's newer sets only seem to feature four zombies for the same price). Each zombie stands around 2 1/8ths inches tall and features a swivel waist, swivel shoulders, and a ball jointed neck.
* Another thing I like about these sets is that there are some uniquely textured bricks. I love the warped wooden slats that connect across the window. The pieces have an excellent wood grain texture and look fantastic! I love how they can be slid aside to allow the zombie to creep his way through!
* The Call of Duty sets have some bricks that feature some great swirled paint colors. The "wood" pieces feature a mixture of browns while the floor pieces are gray and have mixed in various whites, blacks, and browns to give them the appearance of concrete. It looks really great! Lego seems reluctant to do things like this but it's nice to see that Mega Blocks is showing how impressive it can look.
* I love the zombies in these sets! The first two here are both wearing short sleeved, collared shirts. All of the zombies in this set have bright red eyes and I have to say that it makes them look much more terrifying than your garden variety zombie! These guys are really quite fun to play with: The ball jointed heads give you the opportunity to make them rather expressive in their movements.
* This last pair features two shirtless zombies. There's a lot of detail on their bare torsos and they both have some creepy, brain eating headsculpts.
*These guys have the same problem as the Zombies Horde set I reviewed previously: It's tough to get the zombies to attach to the studs properly. The leg stance of the zombie figures is to narrow to allow them to put two feet on each stud without stretching the legs. Also, this set doesn't really have any reasonable places for the zombies to stand, which is kind of frustrating.
