The set includes more than 210 metal and plastic parts, eight different weapons, stickers, tools, and building instructions.

Three Delta Squad figures are included: Marcus Fenix, Damon Baird, and Anya Stroud. Three Locust figures are also included: two Locust Snipers and one Locust Drone. The figures have a lot of moving parts so that kids can pose them in all sorts of battle poses.

Is It Fun?

Once assembled, this building set gives kids various ways to reimagine scenarios from the Gears of War world. This dramatic model makes a nice addition to any Erector Gears of War collection.

Who It’s For

The Locusts vs. Delta Squad Battle Construction Set is for Gears of War fans ages 8 and up. The Gears of War video games are rated Mature (17+) due to violence and language. While there is nothing of that nature in this Erector set, some parents may object to their 8-year-old playing with a Gears of War building set when he's not even old enough to play the video game.
