Toy Review: Halo Mega Bloks UNSC Cobalt Unit Set #97001

UNSC Cobalt Combat Unit: Set number 97001

Technical Specifications:
Build Time: 1 minute sorting, 1 minutes build. Total 2 minutes.

Set Piece count: 48
Minifigs: Cobalt Spartan Mk V; Cobalt CQB Spartan; Cobalt Marine (Green eye display), extra Cobalt Scout Helmet and Arms.
Weapons: Shotgun, SMG, Silenced SMG, Rocket Launcher
 Trip Mine

This is a good set, though the color is a bit shiny for me. I like that we get a trip mine, though I’m a little perplexed that we didn’t get a backpack for the marine. The UNSC 2X2 tile is really nice and I’ll use that for other sets.

Here are the pics.

Summary: A good set, especially if you like the color. The figures are detailed nicely and you get a good little assortment of weapons. I’m not too keen on the color myself as I keep thinking it looks like a nail polish color.

Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5 medals. (Only the color brought this down a little. Not bad, just not what I expected in “Cobalt” form.)
