Halo Mega Construx PREVIEW: UNSC Marine Gear Pack

Thankfully, we are getting some neat little figure packs as well. This UNSC Marine Gear pack is one of those.

This set is rumored to be $15 U.S. at retail.

As you can see in this set, we get a male and a female marine as well as a Red Elite. Is this a Banished Elite? Likely, though the description for the set calls it a mercenary.

Note the muzzle flash. There appears to be a few of these as accessories in the pack.

Also of note are the interchangeable helmets and add on gear such as pouches.

Let’s take a little bit of a closer look at this accessories on the front of the package.
Here we have a few more torso armors as a communications backpack.

There are a LOT of additional pouches, thigh straps and other armor. There IS a crate included in this set to store all of this stuff. It’s a bit small though. SO we’ll see if this all fits in, when I get the set in-hand to fully review.

And finally, this pocket of nades, knives and muzzle flashes.

Here is the official text blurb from Mega’s site about this set:
