It is pretty rare that we get a dark grey (or as I prefer to call it “smoke”) translucent Spartan. As you long time readers know, I’m quite fond of translucent figures. So this is a VERY welcome piece to my own collection.
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?
• A rare trans-smoke Spartan!
• The detail painted on the weapon accessories is superb!
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 rare smoke color specific theme of the set, this is a neat set to have in one’s collection.
