The front of the card shows both figures, a weapon each, both stands and a small bubble with the extra weapons included. As well, the front package art is very nicely done. Non-traditional for Mega. On the back of the card you see Halo Heroes series 11.

Here are all the contents. It’s a nice little assortment of weapons and grenades as well as the two featured characters and stands.

You can get Chief into his iconic Halo 2 pose, including the SMGS, which is a HUGE bonus!

Arbiter includes both a standard Carbine and Energy Sword. I like the very shiny silver of the armor. The purple undersuit is very nice as well. This is a proper Arbiter!

As seen below, you can almost make the iconic Back-To-Back Halo 3 pose. This just after the pair defeat the Prophet of Regret and now have to face off against the remaining Flood.
The only difference is that, instead of an Assault Rifle, you have a Battle Rifle. Still looks good though, IMO.

Summary: A good little set for the two most important characters to the series. It includes multiple weapons and grenades. Whether you keep this mint in package or out of package and displayed, it’s a cool set to own!

Overall Rating: I give this set 10 out of 10 medals.
Why did I give it a 10 out of 10?
• A quick and easy way to get the two most important characters to Halo.
• Unique package art!

Here’s my opinion on the break down of the value of this set. (In US dollars)
• Each figure, it’s weapon and stand I place at $4. For a total of $8.
• The additional weapons and grenades easily account for the other $2 of the retail price.
TOTAL: $10 (before tax and in U.S. dollars) 

Given that the set costs $10 US before tax, I find this set right on par with the contents of the set. 

I believe this set will grow in value due to the iconic pair of characters as well as unique card art. If you see it, GET IT! I was lucky enough to get two. One to open for this review and another I’m going to keep forever carded for display.

Do I recommend it?  Most definitely! As already stated, you get the best two characters, unique card art and a slew of weapons and grenades for a fair price.
