And on with the pics! (Click pics to make BIGGER)
The box front has a very large display window. This is great for those who want to know what comes in the set. As well, for those folks who plan on keeping the set in the box, it’s great to have a large window like this , so they can appreciate the contents, without having to open it up.
The back shows off the figures nicely as well. Though I do wish there would have been those little vignette pics of each spartan head with the name of each one. Not for me, but I know it would help fans/collectors/kids and parents alike.
Next the Promethean weapons: Binary Rifle, Incineration Cannon, Scattershot, Boltshot, LightRifle, Suppressor, 4X Spllinter Grenades
All of the Promethean Weapons fit into the crate. Unfortunately, the grenades do not.
Okay, let’s look at those figures!
Will the be able to survive the onslaught of that Promethean Strike??
Summary: This set is a quick and easy build. A LOT of figures for the cost with a great array of weapons rounds out a fantastic deal!
Overall Rating: I give this set 10 out for 10 medals.
Why did I give it a XX out of 10?
• This is a fantastic set! Army builders will LOVE it. FOlks who collect Spartans will LOVE it! Folks who custom paint spartans will definitely love it. Want several big baseplates? You will love it too!
Let me break down my opinion of the value of this set. (In US dollars)
• Each Spartan and Promethean Solider/Sniper figure with one of the weapon each and a grenade (in lieu of the usual figure stand) $3.50 each. Total of $38.5.
• Regular and Alpha Crawler $2.50 each. Total $12.50
• Watcher with light shield, clip pin and clear rod $3
• Extra Weapons 25 cents each. Total 75 cents
• UNSC and Promethean Crates with lids $1.50 each. Total $3
• Baseplates (large) 75 cents each. Total $3.75
• 2×4 plates 10 cents each. Total 30 cents
TOTAL: $61.80 (before tax and in U.S. dollars)
Given that the set only cost $35 U.S. before tax, this set is WELL WORTH the retail cost.
Do I recommend it? YES YES YES!!! If you want to build a small army of Promtheans, THIS is the set you want! Yes, they are in the blue form, a color not seen in the games for the soldiers and sniper, but still VERY cool. Getting SIX Spartans as well in a set? Folks, normally for a multi-figure pack we pay $20 and it comes with only FOUR figures. This set comes with 11 standing figures, 4 crawlers and a Watcher! Not to mention all the accessories and baseplates!! Oh and that awesome Mega Bloks emblem flag!!!
IMO, this set is worth the price just for the Promethean figures, even if it did not include the Spartans! Conversely, if you want just Spartans, it’s every bit as much worth it too!
You’re getting all that merchandise for 60% of normal cost. That’s a GREAT deal! And thats BEFORE a sale even!!
