These Power Pack sets are , as of this writing, the only way to get the REQ skins. Doubtful we’ll see these again, outside of these packs, so I recommend getting them now, if you want them. See below is the Scratched Magnum, Potence SMG and ARCLight Railgun.
The Spartan itself also has the color theme. Here it has mostly translucent armor. It’s a good look. Of course, you long time readers know I LOVE translucent figures.
Seen below, I’ve used one of the clips to add to the back of the Spartan so it can hold one of the weapons.
Summary: The set has virtually no build time. It’s unique weapon skins are a selling point and one in which I suspect many collectors will buy these Power Packs for. If you like translucent figures, these sets are for you!
Overall Rating: I give this set 9 out for 10 medals.
Why did I give it a 9 out of 10?
• The weapon selection is good. However, I’m not so much a fan of the Magnum of SMG skins. That’s subjective though, so take my opinion with a grain of salt here.
Here’s my opinion on the break down of the value of this set. (In US dollars)
• The figure with one weapon and the figure stand equates to $3.50.
• The two other skinned weapons are $2 total.
• The REQ Station and Power Up button together make up another $1.50.
TOTAL: $7 (before tax and in U.S. dollars)
Given that the set costs $7 US before tax, this is a decent value. It’s right one par with the selling price.
Do I recommend it? YES! Given the uniqueness of the weapons skins and color specific theme of the set, this is a neat set to have in one’s collection.
