Well the thing is , I've

Well the thing is , I've been building with lego all my life.
Even right now I'm a member on several forums, and I occasionally build something ( space ) .
But when I get a offical set I dont buy it for the set, very rarely do I even put it together. I buy them for the parts.
You make a good point about this thig being hollow, that's a problem that all exoforce sets have IMHO.
Exoforce is my main source for juicy parts though , too bad the whole line is getting discontinued...

It doesn't seem like

It doesn't seem like Exo-Force really features unique parts other than minifig designs. It's only in this 2008 line that things like those hybrid-material plates have appeared that seem to be uniquely-suited to the line. Other than that...

I've never though of most of these sets as hollow. Missing some meat on the bones, certainly; but not empty shells like the Drive Section of the HRT is. For example, the Golden Guardian that I covered was a nice bulked-up Battle Machine, it was the joints for the shoulder armor and the left shield arm that screwed it up for me. Same with the Grand Titan from 2006- nice bulky look, but weak on armor around the legs, and the arm joints were weak as well; but overall a good design. With the Sonic Phantom, yeah, the hollowness factor hurt it a lot, but on the Aero Booster you could overlook it easily, and they also took steps to hide it as well; which is yet another reason I liked it so much.

Good Coverage

I ALWAYS read reviews at CDX. It fun and give some knowledge to me. I may not collect legos, but read their reviews always a great experience. It's like you get a hold of them without actually buying them. As for exo-force, when I was kid, I watched Exo-squad and dreaming having one of those cool exo machine. Well now Lego pave the way. Just when you're marriage and have a house to pay for next 10 years, you gotta be picky with your spendings. But honestly, your reviews rock! Keep up the good work.
