Yes, there is a difference in the armor color between snap on parts and the lower arms/legs. It’s noticeable enough, even within the pics. However, the figure, regardless of which armor you put on it, still looks great.
Summary: Nothing to build except the crate. Attaching armor pieces to pins and then the crate is the only other “building” you’ll do with this set, other than armor swapping. The crate is very handy for storing the extra armor and looks nice in a UNSC display. The choice of armor is great and the shine on most of the armor bits is fantastic. I just wish it was even throughout.
Overall Rating: I give this set 8.5 out for 10 medals.
Why did I give it a 8.5 out of 10?
• The one issue I have is the different shades of green or the lack of metallic sheen with some of the armor bits. 1 point off for that.
• The only other issue and it’s much less, is that the shoulder armor can sometimes slip off the shoulder pins when trying to attach it to the crate. 1/2 point for that.
Here’s my opinion on the break down of the value of this set. (In US dollars)
• The figure plus stand and SMG is worth $3.50
• Crate I put at $1.50
• Recon armor set $1.50
• Rogue helmet $.50
TOTAL: $7 (before tax and in U.S. dollars)
Given that the set costs $7 US before tax, the value is spot on.
Do I recommend it? YES. The different shades of green weren’t enough for me to not buy it. I really like this set. I do wish Mega would have included at least one more weapon. In this case a sniper for the Recon Spartan.
