This is one set where I think you most definitely get what you pay for. TWO grunts in the larger size and different styles. And the best absolutely is the Honor Guard pieces. I can’t see how anyone would display the Flight Elite or Combat Elite variants of this set when you have the awesome Honor Guard right there at your hands. Detailing is amazing. Weapons are plain in color, but the addition of trans-blue sticky nades is a welcome touch.

Here are the pics.

A good looking set about with a nice rich color. My favorite set of the recent Armory/Weapons packs.

We had a similar Elite to the Flight Elite above come in a Banshee set. This color is better, but I can’t bring myself to use this head when the Honor Guard is SO much better.

Just look at that minifigs. It’s a masterpiece!

Look at that detailing. By far one of the best MEGA has ever made in the Halo line. It’s my favorite Covenant minifig, hands down.

Summary: This set just screams to be a multiple purchase and indeed I did get two sets of it. The Grunts are great for army building, while having a set of Honor Guards just makes sense. The fact that these are so well painted needs to be stated again. I put this one in the category of MUST HAVE!

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5 medals! SUPERB!!!!!
