Dargo No.852 Avengers Age Of Ultron Minifigures Set
Finally I was able to buy this set. phew .. I know I'm a bit behind compared to other people who have been getting this set months ago. Dargo is not my fav because the quality is below par but after a few times of this set "sold-out" in the market, I finally managed to get one. let's look at why people buy this set.
Pictures of the box, set of 8:
All the boxes use the same image on the back:
Each box contains a trading/game card with a picture of each minifigure:
From left: Ultron Prime, Scarlet Witch, Baron Von Strucker, Quicksilver
From left: Ultron Sentry Officer, Ultimate Ultron, Ultron MK1, Vision
Comparison with original Lego figure on right side in every picture below:
The verdict? Quality of plastics used is still low. for example, the connection between the torso and the leg is very loose. if you stick their feet on the baseplate and hold the body to lift them, the body will be uprooted.
As well as the head. almost all of them (except Quicksilver) has a loose head :(. The accuracy of printing is also low in these minifigures. Have a look at the back of Vision's head for example. Another example is pattern behind Ultron's head looks almost the same as the original but more distorted.
As a conclusion, Dargo still using low-quality plastic. Not only looks cheap, but these loose parts will make people think twice to get this set. I think many people buying this set just because Dargo is the earliest to offer this AOU set and you can get all Ultron variant in this single set. Now that Sheng Yuan has the same AOU set to offer, I think Dargo will have trouble competing. Luckily i also bought Sheng Yuan SY275 & SY276 AOU for review. Read about them in my next post :)
