The Halo: UNSC Siege Bike from MEGA Bloks is a 72-piece set that builds the ONI REAP-X Siege Bike, a beacon structure and two figures. The figures are a UNSC Spartan in CIO navy blue and a Covenant Grunt Storm in active camo.
The siege bike is inspired by the Halo video games and is an all-terrain, single tread vehicle that the UNSC uses to traverse challenging environments. Although it's a small set, this one has a lot of nice details, especially in the bike itself. There is a moving tread, side-mounted heavy machine gun and kick-stand, which is nice for displaying the bike. The Spartan figure also has a lot of detail and multiple paint colors that add to the collector feel of this set.
Fans of the Halo video game who want to continue their engagement with and express their enthusiasm for the game offline will appreciate the way the elements of the game have been reflected in these sets. They are most likely to appeal to fans who want to build and display their own Halo worlds.
This set is for Halo fans, ages 8 and up. Kids will have fun playing with the set, and collectors enjoy small sets like this to expand and build up their overall collection.
The set is part of MEGA Blok's Authentic Collector's series.
The directions are excellent and most MEGA Bloks builders should be able to complete this set in about 20 minutes.
