This set is fantastic. Everything about this is done so well. Normally I would never steer anyone away from Amazon, but you can get this for $30 at a Toys R Us.

NECA continues their excellent BioShock line with a great exclusive set. The main figure, Subject Omega, is a repaint of the previous Subject Delta figure. Though lacking a drill arm, he comes with an exclusive Launcher weapon. NECA's reputation for textures remains solid; all the metal and cloth surfaces are appropriately textured and look very real. The paintjob, just as vital, is also up to par with few over-painted areas.
Subject Omega comes with a Little Sister in an exclusive polka-dotted red dress. Even she has accessories! An ADAM harvesting tool that fits in her hand and an adorable tiny Big Daddy doll. Her paintwork is similarly excellent, right down to her dirty, mud-flecked feet.
Rounding out the set is a life-size Splicer mask. The resin is solid, and is probably far more durable than it feels. It has an elastic band so you can wear it, but the glue holding the band on doesn't seem very strong. You could probably wear it at a Halloween party or a convention, but it will feel more at home as a display piece.
All in all, this set is practically perfect. All three parts really show the quality of NECA's work, and will be perfect on any collector's shelves.

I've been on a roll collecting the Bioshock figures over the last month or so, and managed to snag a Subject Omega gift pack on clearance the other day. 'last store in the state that had this thing! I was pleasantly surprised at how nice Omega and the Little Sister looked, and even though he's "just" a repaint of Delta when it comes down to it, I like him a little more than Subject Delta! The Little Sister that's included is, again, a repaint of the other Little Sister figure, but this one comes with a unique accessory. The obvious selling point of this gift pack is the bunny Splicer mask. There was a big deal about many of these being damaged during shipping, with the ear that's supposed to be in-tact breaking off easily. Mine is just fine, so it's not a problem for me, but it is something to consider when ordering this set online. If possible, email the seller and see if they can make sure it's ok before sending it out, and make sure it's packed securely!
Subject Omega is the exact same figure as Subject Delta, except with different colors, and he comes with a giant gun instead of the drill arm. The paint on this guy looks great and he stands out from the other Bioshock figures because of it. He even has the appropriate symbols on his hands- something that was missing on the Delta figure. The slightly brighter color scheme pops out when he's with the other Big Daddies. Omega has articulation in the shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, upper legs, knees and feet. The gun can be held in his right hand without any problems and it looks better in-person than it does in the stock picture above. Once again, just like Delta, you'll have to attach the tank on his back as well as the tubes, but this only takes a few seconds. This is a very sturdy figure that shouldn't have any trouble standing up on its own over time, and there's very little at risk of breaking here. The one thing to watch out for is the knife on Omega's left hip: it doesn't come out of the sheath, so don't pull on it too hard, as it could break off of the leg.
The Little Sister is perfectly in-scale with Omega, as well as the other Bioshock figures. She has a good amount of articulation- head/neck, shoulders, elbows and knees, just the right amount and not too much so she won't be doing insane poses. The paint on this figure is very good too and I like that they gave her a red dress instead of simply repackaging the other Little Sister figure. She comes with her good ol' syringe, which can be held in either hand, and a Subject Delta doll that can be held with a little work, or you can give it to Delta or Omega to hold.
Finally there's the Splicer mask. Made of resin, the mask sculpt looks just right and should fit most people. The elastic strap on the back goes down diagonally, so just be careful when adjusting it so it doesn't slip off all of a sudden. I'm actually a little disappointed with the paint work on the mask. It looks rushed and like the weathering was randomly done. Still, it looks good when worn and is the key piece for any Splicer costume if you're going for the look. Just use extreme caution when removing it from the plastic tray- there's a small tab that holds the full ear down, and since resin is a much more fragile material than most people give it credit for, you could easily snap the ear in half when trying to take it out.
As long as you can get a good deal, I highly recommend getting this set. The paint on the mask may be lacking, but it's a heck of a lot better than the welder mask that came out (seriously, why bother making that thing?). It's just weird that the one Big Daddy figure that DOES come with a Little Sister is the one that was exclusive to a certain store, and came with another bonus.

I've been avoiding spending money for a while. But, finally I decided to spend money on something Bioshock.
I don't regret this purchase! However, I did buy it from Toys R' Us because It was $30.00 not $70.00 or whatever it is on here.
It's worth $30.00, I wouldn't say $70.00, no way.
Either way, review wise, I think my favorite part is the Little Sister. She's different from all the others which is why I chose this as my first set. It was in stock at Toys R' Us and I wanted it. She has dirt all over her toes and her paint is just amazing. She comes with a Syringe and a Big Daddy Doll which are pretty awesome even if they can be a tiny bit annoying to get into her hands. I think she's awesome. I'd have paid $15.00 for her alone.
So now Subject Omega. I thought he was awesome before taking him out of the box. But, wow. His articulation is ridiculous how much of him can actually move amazes me.
I was a bit sad that I couldn't get his gun in a good pose-able state. Makes his standing options while looking seriously powerful very limited.
The Splicer mask is pretty neat and insanely high quality for something I feel is just an extra throw in there item. I think it's pretty cool, but have no idea what I'm going to do with it. I display most of my action figures, etc on a shelf in my cubicle at work. I think I'd creep myself out seeing a Bunny Splicer Mask all day.
Seriously, pretty awesome set, but here's the bad stuff.
The Little Sister : Nothing much, except her fingers are a little flimsy and I almost felt like I was going to permanently morph them when I was being very careful putting the syringe and doll in her hands. Also, her left leg moves, but her right legs top join is stiff and I'm trying to fix it so I'll be able to pose her, but I feel like I"m going to break it.
Omega : This guy really frustrated me. He has spiky feeling bolts on the front of his helmet, which are awesome, but you actually have to attach his oxygen tanks, etc to his back and it's not easy. I honestly thought I was going to break them forcing them in and it hurt my hand having to press against his front side because of the spiky bolts. I have to make it seriously apparent how hard you have to press to get those tanks into his back. Really really hard. I almost though I was going to have to take the toy back to Toys R' Us, because it was so hard to press in I was worried, either take it back before I break it or take a chance and be stuck with a broken one. I'm not sure why they made such a high quality figure and got lazy on the tanks on the back. I could have dealt with how annoying it was getting my fingers stabbed, but I have a feeling even with it being just displayed on my desk eventually I'll have to add some super glue to the tank pieces on the back. The tiny bit of bar that's attached to the bottom someone claimed the Little Sister could stand on it. I really don't think so. It's really really flimsy and if a kid bought this toy that would be destroyed rather quickly.
Bunny Splicer Mask: Regardless of how creepy this mask can be, I probably would have liked to have the option to hang it up and not have to "wear" it for it's "decorative" purposes. It actually feels too fragile to wear anywhere. It's really something that should be mounted up somewhere, but it just comes with a flimsy band to hold it on your head.
Overall I give this product a 4 star rating, it's definitely worth purchasing if you don't pay the $70.00 on here and don't mind a little frustration. It's an overall detailed figure and I like it a lot. Can't wait to get a big sister. I have Elanor and another little sister on the way already.

I just got this set from Toys R Us for $30 and I'm very happy. Both figures have some of the best detail I've seen and are well constructed. The big daddy is heavy and solid, no parts are loose and his backpack attaches easily. The little sister while small doesn't feel too fragile and is quite posable. My only complaint is that her little accessories fit a bit loosely in her hands.
My big surprise was the quality of the mask. It's thick heavy plastic that has an almost ceramic feel and look. The elastic strap is heavy and holds the mask on just fine. I did have to add some hot-glue to the strap to keep it attached to the mask's smooth back.
I've uploaded some fun photos I took.

When this set was first released at Toys R Us a while back, I held off from buying it because the price tag was a bit high. I was really only interested in the figures themselves, and didn't have any desire to purchase the mask. However, after it became clear that they weren't going to release a version without the mask, I broke down and bought the whole thing.
First off, Subject Omega and the Little Sister. The Little Sister is just a repaint of the other Little Sister models previously released, this time with a red dress. Nothing new or exciting to note with her, and she retains the same level of detail as her predecessors. She does seem to be a bit sturdier than the Little Sisters in the original two-pack, but I haven't put her through any rigorous testing, so we'll see. Subject Omega himself is the real prize, and he is every bit as detailed and quality-made as his Big Daddy relatives. The level of detail is superb, and NECA really nailed his in-game appearance in this figure. While he appears to be at least based off the earlier Subject Delta model, Omega lacks the removable drill hand and his air tanks fit more snugly than Delta's. These are small things, but they make a difference.
Now on to the mask...despite having no interest in it at first, it's a great piece! I assumed it was a flimsy plastic knock-off (shame on me for doubting NECA!) but it is a very well made, heavy mask with a great level of detail. I used it for halloween this year, and my splicer costume was a huge hit! Even as a display piece, it should be on the list of any Bioshock fan out there. Definitely worth the heavier price tag.

The action figures themselves are cool, so I am not going to complain about that. But I bought this product supposedly "new." But when I got it, the packaged was in disarray when I opened the box. The bunny splicer mask was broken in three pieces, and packaging for the actual figures and mask was completely destroyed. I was so disgusted when I got this. It said it was brand new and I bought this from NECA themselves, I just do not understand how carelessly this was packaged. Paying almost $80.00 for this, makes me sad. I was looking forward to adding this to my collection, because I like to keep the packaging and figures sealed. But not his time...
