Sheng Yuan SY362B Wolverine Mecha

Continuation from previous post SY362A, here's the 2nd set; Wolverine also needs his own mecha to fight the bad guys. lol

*When using claws fighting bad guys became too mainstream*

Items in the box: Instructions booklet and lego parts in 7 sealed bags.

Printed parts. Yup, that screen display on cockpit window is printed :)

Assembled set. Love the claws!!

Turret gun for the bad guys. not a fair fight XD

Front view of the mecha:

Side view.

Rear view. 

I love this pose, with lifted flap. 

Upper body and lower body are connected here, using these parts:

This is why I prefer these mecha to have hands:

About the same height with Ant Man's mecha from SY361A:

Last but not least, size comparison with the previous Avenger's mecha from SY360A/B and SY361A/B. I thought all of them about the same size until I put them together like this.

Ooops, I forgot to upload pics of the minifigures XD. Thanks @anonymous :)

Little update thanks to @anonymous: The other minifigure (on the right) is Victor Creed/Sabretooth (starred by Liev Schreiber) in the film xmen origins wolverine.

Sheng Yuan SY362A Ant Man Mecha

I have no skill to make my own MOC of Robots/Transformers/Mecha therefore these type of set is "must have" to me. I wish i could skip this one because i'm more interested with SY362B that i will share with you guys in my next post. But as usual, the purchase in set (SY362A/B) is cheaper than buying separately so I have to have both.

Items in the box: Instructions booklet and lego parts in 8 sealed bags.

This should be metallic grey, i think. but with this result, they should try to make it in normal dark grey colour. not only the color difference looks obvious, but there are also shades of color on the surface of the bricks that are not pleasing to the eyes.

2x4 brick and 2x4 plate

Printed parts. 

Assembled set. Looks unbalanced. I think it would look more attractive if it has both hands with gattling gun as add-on.

The weakest point for this build. SY use these circled parts to connect the upper body and lower body.

Front, side and rear view of the mecha:

Parts that can be adjusted.

Assembled minifigures.

Both had print on the side of the leg:

Well before you jump off your seat to purchase this set, you might want to remind yourself that most parts in this build do not stick well like Lego. most of them kept falling apart :(. They look attractive in pictures but may need a little effort to fix the parts that fall off after a few pose.

Anyway, other mechas that you might be interested in
SY360A Iron Man Mecha
SY360B Thor Mecha
SY361A Hulk Mecha
SY361B Captain America Mecha
SY362B Wolverine Mecha

Sheng Yuan SY288 Fantastic Four

Everyone has their own opinion on this movie but I just have one comment, I really miss Jessica Alba.. oh, and The Thing should wear pants :D.

source: IMDB

I'm okay with all the characters except Mister Fantastic in the white outfit. Is it Future Foundation costume? but i do notice the logo on his torso clearly shows "4" instead of Future Foundation logo.  If you are interested with Future Foundation minifigure, you might interested with Decool's Future Foundation.

Assembled minifigures:

Reed Richards

Johnny Storm

Sue Storm

 Victor Von Doom / Dr. Doom

Ben Grimm / The Thing

Invisible Woman

Mister Fantastic in white F4 outfit

Human Torch

Extra parts/accessories:

Minifigs with printed arm: Susan Storm and Invisible Woman

Last but not least, how do you like this version of The Thing compared to the old design SY167 or Decool 0143

The head sculpt is kinda scary and doesn't look anything near the actual character but you can rotate the head 90 degrees to the left / right. :D
