I purchased this for my husbands Birthday, along with the actual Halo reach game. As an adult, I can't say much about how fun it is to play with, and in likelihood it will spending it's days decorating his desk, however, I was disappointed in the quality of the paint on the product. Although a gamer myself, I am not a big FPS player, so I selected the figures based on their aesthetic value instead of their in-game roles.

The figures I received have more of a "battle worn " look than the image suggests, which although fine in it's own right, they are devoid of any metallic paint, and are duller, more neutral colors (mainly dark brown,and dark grey instead of the red shown on the package or the shiny peach and purples shown in the image), making them look less dynamic and just a touch bland for a high -tech alien race. It's a small complaint, but it makes the detail seem a little muddy and if you are collecting these, VS actually playing with them, it might matter.

2 Figures in this pack. The Spartan is great, and his white paint job begs for a custom wash of your preferred mutliplayer color.

The pose-ability of the spartan is not great, but he will sit in a ghost or warthog (unlike the marines and newest ODST, who dont even bend at the hip). Right now i have him posed in a dash and with his DMR, he looks like he came right out of a game of SWAT.

The Elite's sculpt is great, but his feet are worthless. You can read other reviews on the elites feet; they are garbage. they have very rounded feet, both from side to side, and front to back. This makes him fall off the shelf at least once a week, worsening the situation are his loose leg joints.

Another problem is the muddy paint job on the Ultra. Like the grunt ultra, you want to see a High-tech, pearlescent and colorful (or in this case, at least bright) paint job, and you get a dull, muddy wash of grays and browns. Its an ok set of figures and this way you get an extra spartan, but you may look at getting the new re-issued one, maybe his paint is better?

I love this set! Bothe spartan and elite have great paint schemes, poseability, and articulation! The white is a great color for both figures and the weapons are awesome! Great for collecting or playing!

If you have Halo fans in your house then they're a must have item, but don't expect them to be as durable or articulated as some of the other figures on the market. The guns and other accessories that come with the guys are very difficult to use, almost as if they were made for display instead of playtime, hmm. My kids love the figures anyway and play with them for hours, imagination wins out over quality construction, at least in the short term. Recommend getting the vehicles as well.

Seller was amazing, product was packaged perfectly, and it arrived well before promised. Would love to and will be doing business with this seller again. Would be curious to see what other Halo items you may have.

My grandson loves them. He had to tell me the story behind them then he posed them with other toys in the house. He couldn't believe how big they were. He will enjoy they them for some time.
