What It Is
What It Is
A few years ago, MEGA introduced a construction line based on the popular video game Halo. One of the new sets in this line is the UNSC Elephant. This 1,273-piece set lets older kids and adult collectors/fans build the UNSC Elephant mobile command center. It has a working repair crane and manual deployment ramp. It also includes a buildable UNSC Mongoose vehicle and several figures with weapon accessories. This is part of The Authentic Collector's Series, which includes other Halo sets to collect and build.
Why It’s Fun
The great detail and accessories in this set bring the entire Halo experience alive for fans outside of the video game environment. The figures are fully poseable and have great faces. While collectors will want to display this set, kids will want to send the UNSC Elephant out onto the battlefield and engage in imaginative play.
Who It’s For
The UNSC Elephant is for ages 8 and up. The Halo video games are rated Mature (17 and older), due to blood and gore and violence. While there is nothing of that nature in this building set, some parents may find a Halo building set inappropriate for their children.
What to Be Aware of
Because of the large piece count, it will take time and patience to build the UNSC Elephant. But building is part of the fun, so enjoy the process.
