The box art and window show off this set nicely. I really dig the figs in the window. The back of the box says which figures and weapons are inside.MB Arctic Jackrabbit BOX

You get an instruction manual, 4 bags of parts and the tray of figures.MB Arctic Jackrabbit Contents

Here are the pieces sorted out.MB Arctic Jackrabbit Sorted

These are the four main components of the Jackrabbit. Body, 2 front wheel assemblies and the back larger wheel assembly.MB Arctic Jackrabbit Steps 1

Add the roll bar and turret and the Jackrabbit is complete.MB Arctic Jackrabbit Steps 2

As I did with the original green Jackrabbit, I moved the side weapon clips to the top rear. They then become clips for the roll bar. This enables the roll bar to be held in place snugly. MB Arctic Jackrabbit Alt Frame

And the finished set. Who will win, the Spartans or the Banished? MB Arctic Jackrabbit FIN

Summary: This version of the Jackrabbit is exactly the same as the original Green version. It’s the addition of a few more figures though that makes this set worth purchasing again.

Overall Rating: I give this set 10 out for 10 medals.

Why did I give it a 10 out of 10?
• That this small set has FIVE figures makes it worth it already. Toss in the Jackrabbit as a bonus!

Let me break down my opinion of the value of this set. (In US dollars)
• The figures with one weapon and a stand each equate to $3.50 each.  $17.50 total.
• The Jackrabbit itself is worth another $7.
TOTAL: $24.50 (before tax and in U.S. dollars)

Given that the set cost $20 U.S. before tax, the set is a great value!

Do I recommend it?  YES! As an army builder, I was especially happy that this set came with 2 Banished Brutes and a Banished Grunt.
