And on with the pics! (Click pics to make BIGGER)
In the set you get a CQC helmet (pictured on figure above), a HAZOP helmet and a Grenadier helmet. You also get the “Assault/Sapper” torso armor, EVA shoulder (seen at left below), and Grenadier shoulder (seen at right below)
The blue color of the armor is a nice metallic blue. Makes the figure “pop” more than usual.
Summary: A nice little armor set. I do like that the armor lockers are color coded. If you store the extra armor in there, the color helps to indicate which armor you’ve stored. No build time really here. Good little assortment of armor.
Overall Rating: I give this set 9 out of 10 medals.
Why did I give it a 9 out of 10?
• As I said with the JFO armor pack that I also just recently reviewed, I feel these armor pack sets should include either an additional set of torso armor or an additional different set of lower leg armor.
Here’s my opinion on the break down of the value of this set. (In US dollars)
• The figure with a weapon and the stand is worth $3.50.
• The locker with pegs are worth $1.50 due to size and shape.
• Each extra helmet I value at 50 cents for a total of $1
• Each shoulder armor piece I place at 25 cents each for a total of 50 cents.
TOTAL: $6.50 (before tax and in U.S. dollars)
Given that the set costs $7 US before tax, I find this set just ever so slightly under value. Again, were Mega to add in an extra Torso or different set of lower legs, then the value would indeed be $7 and right on par for the price.
Do I recommend it? YES! This is a quick way to get additional armor if you like to swap armor parts with other spartans in your collection.
