Okay, let’s get into the build!
Summary: The set’s build time is quick. Solid articulation allows for multiple posing and playability.
Overall Rating: I give this set 9 out of 10 medals.
Why did I give it a 9 out of 10?
• I would have liked to have had extra pieces to make a “human” arm to replace the cannon arm if we wanted. That’s about it though. The set itself is very cool!
Here’s my opinion on the break down of the value of this set. (In US dollars)
• The figure, it’s weapon and stand I place at $3.50.
• The EXO suit I put at $7.
TOTAL: $10.50 (before tax and in U.S. dollars)
Given that the set costs $15 US before tax, I find this set a little overpriced. I think it should have sold at no more than $12.
It should be noted as of this writing that the MARK I is the hardest to find of the three single packed EXO suits. I believe this is because it has actual concept art attached to it and has lore within the realm of Halo.
Do I recommend it? Yes. Though slightly overpriced, it’s a fun set and reflects concept art for the MARK I Prototype suit in Halo. If you are collecting the other EXO suits, be sure to pick this one up as well to round out your collection of them.
