#2374 SET REVIEW: 71457 Pegasus Flying Horse

Alt text / image descriptions are available for the images in this post.

We're back with our second Dreamz review, this time of the terrifying Pegasus Flying Horse. The dark colour scheme is eye-catching, especially with the black - magenta wings. Unfortunately the set features minimal changes in the alternate builds, but offers a great part and minifigure selection.

Parts Selection Score: 4 out of 5. Lots of fun recolours, prints and new parts, some exclusive. A good volume of colourful parts and overall great parts pack!

Minifigures  There are a total of 4 minifigures in this set, all of which can be seen across multiple different Dreamzz sets.  Exclusivity: No Exclusive figures as Nightmare King and Susan appear in 3 other sets, while Zoey and Nova appear in 2 other sets.  Nightmare King: Has a White and Black Color Scheme with Magenta highlights, which is the color palette of the villains in Dreamzz. He has a skeletal looking face print with an angry expression, and he wears a head piece with white hair and a black crown with a yellow eye in the middle. The torso print also has a yellow eye in the center, with some prints that indicate a steel frame as well as dirty bandages. The leg print has the top half continuing with his torso's design with a more armoured look, and eventually trasitioning to the white at the bottom with clawed toes. Finally this minifigure's most iconic element is his ragged, black cape, which incorporates elements like bat wings, and the face of a wolf/dragon at the tattered end.  Zoey: Has a very cool colour palette which includes Dark Turqoise, Dark Purple, Dark Blue, and accents of Lilac and Gunmetal (Pearl Dark Gray). This figure comes with a new hair piece in Dark Purple, which is a coiled and braided female hair piece that is swept to the left side. Zoey also wears a dark turqoise cape with sharp ends. Her torso print has a dark blue base with dark turqoise and lilac cloth prints, gunmetal straps and belt elements, and an hourglass emblem print. The leg print has dark blue with lilac stitches into the top half, and transitions into gunmetal at the bottom with prints resembling boots or greaves. To resemble the idea of an archer glove, one of Zoey's minifigure hands is dark blue while the other is yellow to flow with her yellow arms.   Nova: Has a relatively simple but pleasing color scheme of Blue and Lilac. She comes with an existing hair piece that is mid-length, and combed behind ear, but in a new recolor of Dark Red. Her torso has a lilac body with blue arms, with the only print being the picture of a sloth hanging on a branch on the torso. The legs have no print, and are only a solid blue.  Susan: This minifigure is unique because it uses a body mold that is much smaller than a typical minifigure, almost similar to LEGO's old microfigures. The figure's face print has multiple of those recurring yellow eyes, and its head piece is a Black and Trans-Dark Pink molded helmet with Magenta cattle horns attached to the side. Their torso print has Silver straps, Magenta spots and a torn White skirt design. They also use a trans-clear neck bracket piece to attach the Trans-Dark Pink wing elements to the body.  Minifigure Score: 4 out of 5. he Nightmare King is a highlight with new helmet and capes elements. No exclusive characters, but a good range for newcomers to the theme.

Poseability  This slide shows a side shot of the main build, the Pegasus, and highlights which parts of the set has any range of motion. Highlighting parts of the build that can move like the legs, as well as parts that are used to help give the build the poseability it has. Another area of highlight is the ability to detach the segment of the builds where the Nightmare King sits to create a seperate build that resembles a bat-like creature.  The wings of the pegasus are actually a seperate assembly that can detach from the main body!   The pegasus has fairly good range of motion, with joints in the legs, tail, neck and wings.  Highlighted Parts: 14418 - Light Bluish Gray Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with Small Tow Ball Socket on End 14704 - Light Bluish Gray Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with Small Tow Ball Socket on Side 47455 - Black Technic Rotation Joint Ball Loop with 2 Perpendicular Pins with Friction 48171 - Dark Bluish Gray Technic, Brick Modified 2 x 2 with Pin Hole and Rotation Joint Ball Half Vertical

Techniques (1/3)  The slide shows an image of the Pegasus build stripped back a bit to show the inner-frame, and how everything is put together. More pieces are highlighted in this slide, to show what their purpose is in the build.   The feathers and fur on the Pegasus are represented by the magenta pieces like spikes and claws.   Highlighted Parts: 11089 - Magenta Barb / Claw / Horn / Tooth - Large 15362 - Magenta Hero Factory Weapon, Blade Wide Curved 27261 - Magenta Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with 3 Claws / Rock Fingers  Looking at the skeleton of the Pegasus build, several different coloured SNOT (Studs Not on Top) bricks make up the frame to allow plates, slopes and wedges to shape the body.

Techniques (2/3)  The slide shows an image of the sub-assembly that attaches to the pegasus, which is the bat-like creature where the Nightmare King sits upon a throne attached to it.   The bat-like creature that attaches to the pegasus is a relatively simple build. Utilize bar and clip pieces to make the spiny legs that clamp to the main build, and ball & socket joints to attach the wings. The star pieces of this set are the beautifully dual molded wing pieces. First released in the in Harry Potter theme in 2005, the piece would be reused in multiple themes dawning various different colors.  Highlighted Parts: 51342pb12 - Black Dragon Wing 19 x 11 with Marbled Magenta Trailing Edge Pattern 23443 - White Bar Holder with Handle 40379 - White Dinosaur Tail End Section / Horn 50923 - Dark Bluish Gray Technic, Liftarm, Modified Ball Joint Angled 1 x 2 67696 - Black Technic, Brick Modified 2 x 2 with Ball Socket and Axle Hole - Straight Forks with Round Ends and Closed Sides 30350b - Magenta Tile, Modified 2 x 3 with 2 Open O Clips

Techniques (3/3)  The slide shows images of the two side builds of the set, which are a teal, purple, and white bird creature that Zoey mounts, and a cage monster with bat wings and cyclops eye that has captured Nova.   The good guy side build showcases a purple and teal coloured bird. Various leaf elements are used in the wings and head to represent plumage.  Highlighted Parts:  32607 - Dark Turquoise Plant Plate, Round 1 x 1 with 3 Leaves 3565 - Dark Turquoise Plant Plate, Round 1 x 2 with Leaf  The cage creature's body uses octagonal bar plates with Exo-Force arms and 4L bar pieces to make a cage design that can fit a minifigure inside.  Highlighted Parts:  75937 - Pearl Dark Gray Plate, Modified 2 x 2 with Bar Frame Octagonal, Reinforced, Completely Round Studs 98313 - Black Arm Mechanical, Exo-Force / Bionicle, Thick Support 30374 - Black Bar 4L (Lightsaber Blade / Wand)  Techniques Score: 3 out of 5. There are some interesting parts usage and techniques used in the main and side builds, which are effective but nothing revolutionary.

Alternate Build  This slide shows an official image showing a small alternate build that is included in the set for Zoey's bird creature mount. There's also an image of the bird's main build to use as a point of reference.   While the main build itself doesn't have an alternate build, Zoey's bird mount can be rebuilt into a pair of butterfly wings that she can wear!

Display Value The slide shows a promotional image of the set being displayed on a shelf in a room that closely matches the color scheme of the Pegasus itself.   Display Value Score: 4 out of 5. While this set is primarily designed to be played with, considering all it's smaller side-builds and play features, the build itself makes for a great display piece. The pegasus' black base frame pairs well with the brighter colors used throughout the rest of the build, and contrasts the side builds nicely.

Value for Money   The slide shows another promotional image of the set being built and played with by two kids, a young girl and boy.  Value for Money Score: 3 out of 5. Valued at 9.7p/10.4c/11.0c, the Dreamzz Pegasus leans on the more expensive side for sets in this line, especially being one without an alternate build. That being said, it is still a great parts pack with amazing new pieces, beautiful recolors and a plethora of great parts for building!
