And on with the pics! (Click pics to make BIGGER) (Video Review at end of article)
The box art/window do an excellent job of showcasing the figures inside. I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed with how MEGA does their packaging.
The back shows off nicely the set. Curiously, the Stealth Falcon set shown, I’ve never seen at stores. Would REALLY love to own that set. Love that color. As well, a chance to own more Carrier and Infection Forms!
Here is what you get inside. Only the Missile Pod needs slight assembly.
Speaking of which here it is with the other weapons in the set. The Elite doesn’t get a weapon here, unless you swap out the Spartan’s shotgun and give it to the Elite Flood Form.
Popcorn Shrimp! Er…Flood Infection forms. So VERY glad MEGA gave us a whopping SIX of these in this set. That makes is SO easy to army build those little suckers!
So here we have MEGA’s version of the Carrier form and the in-game version. MEGA’s is close and I suspect the more rounded shape was to accommodate the infection forms better. Curious though why it’s so chocolate in color as opposed to the game’s pale color. Hopefully we’ll get this fig again and in the paler color. I’m not disappointed by this mind you.
Here’s the slot on top showing all the Infection forms inside. LOOK OUT! One is trying to escape!
The ever well done Spartan EOD. I just LOVE this armor set. It really makes this Spartan look TOUGH! Paint detail is great and of course I swoon over the Stealth color. Probably only second to the Master Chief Green color for my favorite color choice.
The Spartan Scout’s color is just as good if not better!
I may be mistaken here, but this looks like the same Elite Flood Combat form that came in the Single packs not too long ago. Maybe a slightly different armor color. No matter, ALWAYS glad to add to the Flood army ranks!
It’s a Flood attack! Will our Spartans survive and save the day? (Of course they will!)
Summary: There is virtually no building with this set other than the missile pod, so it’s a ready to go, right out of the package set for play or display. The Stealth color for the Spartans is one of my favorites and makes this a must buy for me. Having 6 Infection Forms included where they’ve been scarce otherwise really adds to the value of this set for me. For $15 (price varies by store), I find this an EXCELLENT value. Each minifig itself would be $3.50. That brings the total to $14. So for just $1 more you get the 6 Infection Forms. (That breaks down to 17 cents each rounding up-a GREAT deal!)
Overall Rating: I give this set 9.5 out for 10 medals. Other than not having a weapon for the Elite Flood Combat Form, and arm articulation for the Carrier Form, this would have been a 10.
And finally, my first ever video toy review! I’ll be making these short vid reviews from now on. Excuse the slight shakyness. Also, the background noise is my fishtank, so apologies if you hear that. (I’ll get better with this, the more I make the vid reviews.)
