Recommendation: meh 43 / 50 by Brickthing

There's no denying that Surge is a fantastic set, with excellent pieces and a final model that combines the personality of the first Surge with the amazing pieces of the second. You won't be disappointed with this set, but unless you particularly like certain pieces in this set or Surge's character, I recommend that you pick up one of the villain sets first, because they generally seem to have even better pieces/builds.

Thanks to his colour scheme and overall design, Surge is currently my favourite hero of the new wave. Breez might come with better pieces and also a very cool design (she's basically Samus Aran!), but her colour scheme (which is dominated by lime green with bright red) doesn't look as good to me as Surge's does. The only things which are bugging me about him are his hollow back and the stoic launcher.

Surge seemed like a pretty cool guy, especially when looking at all the nice pieces he comes with. But he is nothing new when it comes to design and function. When it comes down to the final say, it depends on how badly you want the figure and/or the pieces.
