Summary: A set with no build time, other than swapping armor pieces. If you like armor builder sets, this is a good one. More armor than the smaller locker sets, plus it comes with an additional figure. All for about just $1-2 more.
Overall Rating: I give this set 9.5 out of 10 medals.
Why did I give it a 9.5 out of 10?
• My only ever so small issue is that the forearms and lower legs aren’t the same colors between spartans. I think the creamy white is a bit odd, especially against purple. I’d have rather had them both the grey color. That’s just a personal choice though.
Here’s my opinion on the break down of the value of this set. (In US dollars)
• Each figure with a weapon and figure stand is worth $3.00, for a total of $6.
• Each additional armor set (which I define for this set to be a helmet, 2 shoulders and a torso armor, I value at $1.00 each for a total of $4.
• The long lockers I places at 50 cents each for a total of $1 in this set.
TOTAL: $11 (before tax and in U.S. dollars)
Given that the set costs $8-10 US before tax, I find this set a good value!
Do I recommend it? YES! I like the amount of armor customization available with this set. I’m always happy to have more green armored Spartans.
