Mega Bloks Toy review: Versus Snowbound Battlescape set 97068


Versus Snowbound Battlescape: Set number 97068
(Target Exclusive)

Technical Specifications:
Build Time: 2 minutes sorting, 3 minutes build. Total 5 minutes.

Set Piece count: 100
Minifigs: Blue Recon w/white dusted feet; Red Commando Elite w/white dusted feet; Active Camo Recon (COOLNESS)
Weapons: Battle Rifle (Black); Plasma Rifle (Crimson); Active camo Mauler
Accessories:
 Covenant power core; clear display stands (can be made small or large, your choice.

Special Features: Turret swivels
Dimensions: The Battlescape is the standard size as all the rest as it uses the same mold again, this time in white/steel colors.

The set has 100 pieces. Most are really the minifigs and that’s just fine. I’m always glad to have a clear figure as I’m a fan of that particular type of toy. (I love to see the inner workings of how a toy is made and clear toys show that very well)

Here are the pics.

Like the other battlescapes, this one features a removable section. This can be place elsewhere on the baseplate if desired.

The turret assembly is quick and easy to build. Really great design. I think Mega nailed it here. I just wish I could get a few more of the turret without having to buy more of the whole sets.

The minifigs are fantastic. Not just due to Recon, but active camo. I like the crimson Plasma Rifle. Close enough to be like the Brute Plasma Rifles. More Power cores please!!!

Summary: A good set for the money. Everything outside of the battlescape itself really drew me into buying the set. Were this made as a set without the scape, I’d have bought 3 more of them.  It’s a good set to get, especially if you want to complete the Snowbound Target exclusive series.

Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5 medals. Decent minifigs weapons and accessories help make the set from an otherwise overused baseplate set.

  1. I definitely have to agree with what you said. This set could have been a lot better had they done a vital part of the map, such as the underground bunker, so they really missed their opportunity with that. It would have been cool if they made a larger Battlescape base with the underground bunker complete with the tunnels, but that is just me dreaming. Great review as always
