And on with the pics! (Click pics to make BIGGER)
You get a very good assortment of weapons included with the set. Power weapons like the Sniper and Rocket Launcher, short and mid ranged weapons like the pistol, Assault Rifle, Battle Rifle, and finally the short distance, but effective flamethrower.
In the pic below, I show several variations of armor you can make. This includes not just swapping armor, but also swapping body parts to create whole different figures!
Of those above, I REALLY like the way the all Green Flamemarine and Grey/Black regular Marine looked, so that’s how I kept them to look after swapping parts.
Summary: This set has almost no build time and has quite a lot of variability when it comes to swapping armor (and body parts).
Overall Rating: I give this set 10 out for 10 medals.
Why did I give it a 10 out of 10?
• The base figures themselves are great. The variations you can make with the armor are even better.
• A very good assortment of UNSC weapons allows for more playabilty as well as to give other figures you may have in your collection, something else to use.
Let me break down my opinion of the value of this set. (In US dollars)
• The figures equate to $3.50 each. This includes their one weapons, figures stands and the flamethrower backpack $7 total.
• The additional weapons, armor, and crates are worth about $4 collectively.
TOTAL: $11 (before tax and in U.S. dollars)
Given that the set cost $9 U.S. before tax, the set is a great value! All the added extras make this set an almost steal for the retail price of $9.
Do I recommend it? YES YES YES! Okay, this is in part because I’m an army builder. I like to have lots of marines. The versatility of armor and body part swaps though are what really have me sold on this set!
