The Ghost takes shape. A note here. The large arching piece at the front can come off a little easy. I recommend building the wings and placing those on first before that large piece. Makes it easy to put the wings on, without that piece popping off.MB CovCom Ghost steps

Here’s the final model. The wings of this Ghost are unlike any we’ve seen before. This is the Halo 5 Ghost. As for accuracy, it’s decent. Though I still think the wings could have been reworked slightly.MB CovCom Ghost FIN

Summary: The set has a short build time. Thus, it’s an easy build. Simple to follow instructions.

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 9.5 out of 10?
• The half point comes off due to one thing. I would have preferred a small translucent piece atop Jul’s helmet, rather than that being painted on. There also should be hand prints on the shoulder armor. But given that scale, it’s okay that they weren’t put on.

Do I recommend it?  Absolutely YES! This is a good set for the money. Jul makes this a must buy if you want to collect all of the named characters.
