ok on to figures now, you get a pair of jackals which is great they need to always come in pairs just like hunters, if they arent special(say a sniper) or in a blind bag or heroes pack they need to come in pairs. the marine that comes in is nice and generic but it is the now old tall variant(newer marines now have shorter top leg sections to make them shorter then spartans). comes with one master chief now im a bit torn but i think there are too many sets with master chief and this one could have done without him. we had the vs pack(GNW38), this warthog, Defense Point Showdown(GNB27), Pelican Inbound(GNB28), and the most recent Halo Heroes 13(GVP37). this chief is lacking where those are interesting(halo heroes chief excluded as hes the same as this one). if i had a say on what chief should have been replaced with id say an odst or something in that vein.
ok so is this set worth the asking price of 29.99usd, i have to say no i think the set is asking 5 too much. i feel the sweet spot for this set is around 24.99(which is what i bought my first of these sets for), as much as the set gives the price structure is pretty straight forward and with a set like Recon Getaway(GNB40) to compare to it makes the 29.99msrp a bit high, so the basic price structure is 3usd per generic figure, 5usd for figures with proper detailing, so you subtract that from the total and the set price for the bricks is then shown, Recon Getaway is an amazing value set following this formula as you get a mongoose for 3usd and four figures equaling 12usd, 123 piece set thats pretty good. now lets take a look at Turret Takedown(GRM99)s price structure, its a similar low cost set 2 figs 98 pieces and it totals at 9.99usd, its priced fairly similar to Recon Getaway, 6usd for figs 4usd for bricks. now enters the warthog 12usd for the figs, but that leaves 18usd for the hog and at only 314pieces, while yes alot of the pieces are larger, now lets assume about 100 bricks is 4usd at most lets say 5usd, so total 12-15usd for the warthog, i dont think that justifies the massive divergence from the formula which is why i feel the 24.99 is more correct for the set. that said if you can find it 25 or lower buy this set.
overall thoughts, great main build, lacking secondary build, a good selection of figures, priced a bit high but if you can find it for 25 or less it is a must buy
