SpruKits Halo Level 2 Spartan Locke Toy Review! EXCLUSIVELY only on HFFL!

Before I start this review, I need to thank Bandai for being generous in sending me this set. This is a pre-production set, meaning, it’s one of the ones made before mass production begins. You can tell by the sticker in the upper right corner of the front of the box. I’m told that means ‘sample’ in Japanese.

Further thanks are due as I was told I am the first ‘press’ person to receive this set and noone will get it for roughly a month’s time. So this is the exclusive review that you can not find on any other site. (Please see statement at end of article).

Let’s get started with the review! Continue reading

Below is the insert sheet that comes with each blind packed figure. As you can see there are 5 common, 2 rare, and 2 ultra rare. Not pictured are also two completely translucent figures. There is a green spartan and a smoke (I want to say EVA, though In could be wrong…) Continue reading
