Figures nice, paint so/so.
on November 10, 2010
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.
