What It Is
The UNSC Desert Combat Unit is part of MEGA Bloks' construction line based on the popular video game Halo. Kids—and adult collectors/fans—can complete this 53-piece set to add additional forces to their Halo troops. The set comes with two marine figures, one Spartan figure, and interchangeable armory and weaponry components to customize your Halo soldiers. This is part of The Authentic Collector's Series, and there are other Halo sets to collect and build.
Why It’s Fun
This is a quick build and will likely appeal most to Halo fans and collectors. Collectors will want to display this set, while kids will like customizing the characters and using them with the larger Halo building sets to engage in imaginative play.
Who It’s For
The UNSC Desert Combat Unit 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
This set takes about five minutes to put together.
Additional sets that go along with the UNSC Desert Combat Unit include the UNSC Cobalt Combat Unit, the Convenant Silver Combat Unit, and the Convenant Crimson Combat Unit.
