Have I said how much I like this new clean look. There is just something about the package design having a white theme that says “Hey, I’m new, buy me,” to me.

Here is what you get in the box. I’m not sure why there are translucent blue parts, but I’ll take them. You folks know that I LOVE see-through toys! Note in this set we get a Plasma Repeater and Storm Rifle. Both are nicely detailed in paint and the needler looks very nice as well.
This is the completed set. I really like this one a lot. The weapons stand evokes both the weapons crates as well as the barricade we know. It’s like a hybrid between the two, in a GOOD way. And WOW that minifigure! Great detail. I’ve been waiting for this figure to come out in game accurate colors. The wait is over and it was worth that wait.
Summary: This is an army building set for sure! With a very well done minifigure, excellent weapons choices, and a nicely themed Covenant weapons stand, this set has just what you need to fill up your Covenant Storm Faction. Of the three, this was the set that excited me the most. I certainly hope this isn’t the last we’ll see of this minifigure in that specific color. The stand parts are in keeping with the general Covenant theme and fit well with other Covenant sets.
Overall Rating: I give this set 10 out for 10 medals. Yes…a PERFECT score from me. It has a classic weapon, a rarely seen Reach weapons, and a NEW Halo 4 weapon, not to mention a fantastic minifigure. I HIGHLY recommend this set!
I need to once again thank my wife for getting me these three weapons packs and the Arctic Cyclops pack that I reviewed. It’s an early birthday present to me. Isn’t she a doll! Thank Love!
It helped that the sets were ‘Buy One, Get One Half Off,’ at Toys R Us. Sale ends tonight folks!
