And on with the pics!
I really REALLY like the graphics for the packaging. It showcases the contents very well, explains the cyclops on the back, and the inside graphic once you’ve cut away the plastic bubble is great!
As always the contents sorted out.
I don’t recall doing this for the previous 3 iterations of the cyclops, so here is a front and back shot of it showing it’s articulation.
This is how the shoulder mounted gun is assembled.
The finished set with the Marine standing in the cockpit. He’s holding the sniper rifle. With the other three Cyclops, I was able to put both the backpack and the respective weapons in the cockpit with the marine and close it. The sniper rifle is a bit too long for that, so…
…I put it on one of the forearms, using the side peg on the weapon to attach it.
Summary: This now is my favorite of the 4 versions of the cyclops. For one, I really love this color. As well, the shoulder mounted guns are much more impressive that the other three cyclops weapons. The sniper rifle is well detailed with paint.
Overall Rating: I give this set 10 out for 10 medals. Given that I got this at Target for $2 cheaper than Toys R Us, I felt better about the price. I still wish these cyclops sets would have included a UNSC technician figure though.
I need to once again thank my wife for getting me this. Another early Birthday present. As I’ve been saying, she’s the best!
