What It Is
Halo Countdown is one of the newest sets in the MEGA Bloks construction line based on the popular video game Halo. This 1,241-piece set lets kids and HALO fans build out the UNSC Sabre starfighter. It is equipped with deployable missile pods, working canopy, full gantry, launch pad, swivel ladder, and control room. It also includes the new UNSC Mark V Spartan figure along with UNSC sergeant, UNSC technician, and three UNSC marines figures with weaponry. This set is part of The Halo Authentic Collector's Series.
Why It’s Fun
This playset lets Halo fans bring the storylines and elements from the video games to life. The set is ideal for Halo collectors who can build and customize the set for display, while kids will enjoy recreating and acting out Operation: Upper Cut using the highly detailed pieces.
Who It’s For
The Halo Countdown construction set is for ages 8 and up. The Halo video games are rated Mature (17 and older), due to 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 is a sophisticated building set and will require a lot of time and patience. It is not for younger kids. This set took us about five hours to put together.
