As with each Halo Heroes Series before, there are 6 figures in this series.
Now let’s take a look at the figures!
My only complaint from series 6 is that Roland got a strange orangish wash over him. It wasn’t needed as he’s a character made of light. Eventually, I’m going to take rubbing alcohol to this figure and remove that wash. The figure itself though is great!
Summary: There is next to no build time with these figures as it’s just the stand to put together. A great selection of characters from across the array of Halo lore.
Overall Rating: I give Series 6, 10 out for 10 medals.
Why did I give it a 10 out of 10?
I gave a rating for each figure, then averaged the final tally.
Spartan Helljumper – As mentioned above, it’s rare that we get a pink colored spartan. I’m happy with this one. If I can find more, I may just buy them for a special giveaway. 10 of 10
Let ‘Volir – One of the Banished I’ve been waiting for, for some time! The printed energy sword is great. The figure even better! 10 of 10
Jun-A266 – Jun is a fan favorite. He gets an added paint deco here not seen in the previously released version that came with the Troop Elephant. As well, the human head really adds to the figure. 10 of 10
Spartan Grant – SO happy to complete my Fireteam Majestic squad with this Grant figure. Lots of paint detail really make this a standout figure among Spartans. 10 of 10
Roland – The only figure in this series that I have any complaints of. The wash applied nearly ruins an otherwise great figure. Take that away and he’s perfect. (Which I will be doing with rubbing alcohol later on) 9 of 10
Spartan Athlon – Fantastic armor set gets a cool color scheme! I hope we see more like this one! 10 of 10
Let me break down my opinion of the value of this set. (In US dollars)
• Each figure with one of the weapons each $3.50 each.
• The buildable stand is made of 4 pieces. Normally this would mean a value of 40 cents for the complete stand. As each stand however comes with the name printed on the large black piece, I put the value of the whole stand at $1.
TOTAL: $4.50 (before tax and in U.S. dollars)
The price of $5 (average retail U.S. price) is just slightly over that. Since each figure comes on it’s own specific card with corresponding character artwork, I can waive the 50 cents difference due to that.
Do I recommend it? YES! Halo Heroes is one of the very few things I collect both a carded and another to open. These IMO, are highly collectible, especially if kept in the package.
