Before we move on with the review, it should be noted that there is no in-game Vector Tactical power up. This is something made specifically for the 10th Anniversary (of licensing) line. Hence why it includes the gold sniper rifle.
On with the pics! (Click pics to make BIGGER)
The window shows the figure, weapons and REQ station nicely. The back shows 3 armor pack sets. (As of this writing, I’ve reviewed the Green and Black sets. Hope to have the Blue set in a couple of weeks.)
Inside you get a small bag of parts, the figure, weapons and one-half of the REQ station, as well as an instruction sheet.
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 (As long time readers know I DO!), these sets are for you!
Overall Rating: I give this set 10 out for 10 medals.
Why did I give it a 10 out of 10?
• I think the magenta translucent pieces look great and really make the figure stand out.
• The detail painted on the AR and Magnum is cool.
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 $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. The detail on the weapons does add some value here, IMO. So tack on another $1-2 worth of value. This makes the set a slightly better value, in my opinion.
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.
