This is one of the new style graphics for 2015. Good action pic on the front.
This is what is left over. Now, that piece with the UNSC on it is up to you to use or not. It’s technically wrong since the logo goes top to bottom and was fixed with the actual one in use. But again, that’s your choice.
Now below in the top half of the pic is the stock model version from Mega. Below that is my custom version of it.
The main difference of course is removal of those two white 2X1 pieces on top of the guns. Those made the model look to bulky in that area. I also moved the mirrors over to the side by one stud. IMO, that makes the model look a bit better and more accurate.
Summary: The set has a short build time. Thus, it’s an easy build. Fairly accurate to the game. With one change, it is made better.
Overall Rating: I give this set 9 out for 10 medals. This set has good value for $10. I got it on sale at Toys R Us for $7.50. So it was an even better deal for me.
Why did I give it a 9 out of 10?
• The point comes off due to two things. Those 2X1 pieces were a detractor for me, thus the removal of them. Not too big a deal.
• The main reason for the point off is the color. Why of why is this white and not green? The gungoose is green in the game. So inevitably, Mega will put this out again in green and get us to buy the set again.
Now, that said, I really REALLY hope the gungoose is not made ad naseum into many different colors. Tan, ok. But I’m betting we’ll see a team Red, team Blue, Black, and flood version of the gungoose…
Do I recommend it? YES This is a good set for the money, regardless of the color and two bulky pieces. The rest of the set is well constructed and the official Noble Six makes this a must buy if you want to collect all of the named characters.
