What It Is
Halo Cauldron Clash is a 518-piece construction set based on the video game, Halo 4, and that game's level known as "Requiem". Cauldron Clash comes with everything you need to build a battlescape location from the game including six figures. There is a Promethean Knight, two Promethean Crawlers, a Promethean Watcher, a green Spartan Soldier and a UNSC Marine.
Is It Fun?
Something that really separates MEGA Bloks Halo sets from other construction toys are the figures – these figures have a lot of great detail, articulation points and features that make them mini-action figures and lead to a lot of open-ended play. One figure in particular, the Promethean Knight, is a large figure whose back wings open up to release a smaller figure that can be perched on an included pole.
The completed structure has a cool break-away feature that lets kids imagine an explosion has rocked the bridge and there are several ramps that can be raised or lowered.
Who It’s For
Cauldron Clash is designed for Halo fans ages 8 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
Building a set of this size takes some time, it took us about 2 hours, but for MEGA Blok's fans, that is part of the fun.
The directions are pretty good and mostly easy to follow.
