Okay, let’s take a look at the figures!
UNSC Marine (Blue Base – Warzone Halo 5) – I’m ALWAYS happy to get more marines. My one regret here is that I couldn’t find MORE of this set to get more of this figure! His Red counterpart was in one of the single pack series. I wish this one was given that same treatment. I have at least a half dozen of the reds. Would have liked to have that many in blue. Still, a solid figure!
Brute Minor – Another cool army builder! The color of the armor lends itself nicely for any customizers out there. I do hope Mega makes Brutes the correct size some day. Again, though, happy to have this brute.
Brute Captain (Active Camo) – You folks already know what I’m going to say… I LOVE translucent figures! As you can tell, I had to drop down the lighting for this figure. If I hadn’t, there would have been a lot of light glare and you wouldn’t have been able to see as many of the details in the sculpt.
Summary: The set is great for army builders since it includes the marine, brute minor and even the Brute Captain.
Overall Rating: I give this set 9.5 out for 10 medals.
Why did I give it a 9.5 out of 10?
• Well, for my set in particular, it had the 2 right legs on the spartan. That aside, I’d rather this set not have the Spartan and instead have another army builder. A blue ODST would have been a good replacement.
My only complaint is that I wanted to army build the marine. I’d have been happy to build up the brute minor and even the Brute Captain. But I just do not need extras of the blue Spartan. Alas, I didn’t even have the choice at retail as I only saw this ONCE and at that, at a Family Dollar store, not at normal big chain stores like Toys R Us, WalMart or Target.
Here’s my opinion on the break down of the value of this set. (In US dollars)
• The figures with one weapon and a figure stand each equate to $3.50 each. $14 total.
• Buildable Dropshield/terrain piece $2.50
TOTAL: $16.50 (before tax and in U.S. dollars)
Given that the set costs $10 US before tax, this is a very good value!
Do I recommend it? YES. It’s a GREAT set and certainly worth a one-time or more purchase!
