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 Falcon with Landing Pad. Kids—and adult collectors/fans—can build a Falcon helicopter with spinning propellers and pretend machine guns. The 503-piece set also comes with two figures, a Spartan Air Assault and UNSC Pilot, and cargo accessories. The blocks have a camouflage effect. This is part of The Authentic Collector's Series, and there are other Halo sets to collect and build.
Why It’s Fun
There's a lot of great detail in this building set, which makes it great for Halo fans and collectors. The camouflage blocks add a nice touch, and the many moving pieces add to the play value for kids. While collectors will want to display this set, kids will want to send the Falcon out on battles and engage in imaginative play.
Who It’s For
The UNSC Falcon with Landing Pad 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 may take some time to build this. But building is part of the fun, so enjoy the process.
