Build Report: 70220 Strainor's Saber Cycle

In today's build report we are looking at one of the Chima sets from the final story arc,where ice and fire met.

Strainor's Saber Cycle is, well, a large cycle like machine from the forces of Coldness, and faces of a young hero bend on stopping him.

Opening the box, we get three bags of elements, a sticker sheet and the instruction manual.

There are two figures in the set, Worriz and Strainor.  I love those wings Worriz has on his back.

Fiest, we have a small build, as a wall is included as a sort of scenery.  Based on a long plate, this is build up using some slopes and masonry stones.



We then begin building the cycle itself.  The centre of the machine is a collection of technic axles and beams.



The large central wheel is then put together and installed in the middle of the beam construction, together with some very sharp blades.


The connection point for the upperbuild is then installed.


The front carries some large icy fangs to shove those who oppose Strainor aside.

We then begin building the upper side of the vehicle.  This is shaped like a sabretooth head, a feature of many vehicles that it resembles their pilot`s species.





Icy details are added to make it look a lot more sinister and cold.


The next thing we install is the underjaw of the machine.



The upperjaw is then added together and installed on top of the machine.  This includes very cool ears and a mighty sharp set of teeth...







The upperbody is then attached to the underside, and the machine is ready.


Of course, we get a lot of extra pieces with the set.

And the full set completed

I liked this one for the Sabretooth and the colorpalette, and I must admit I find it a bit of a pity the Chima line has ended.  For me personally, it was a better source for parts then the current Nexo Knights line, but the good thing is that you can now find them in clearances often.
