Revell – New Plastic Model Kits

Halo fans, prepare for battle with new Revell® plastic model kits of fan favorite vehicle variants.

I have fond memories of Revell brand models from when I was growing up.  For the longest time I only had the luxury of sitting and watching my brother build these models but eventually I was allowed to start getting models of my own.  I don’t quite recall having Snap-Tite models at that time.  I remember the constant use of glue and at times even paint.  But boy – the cars that were the end result were amazing.  I totally wish I knew where those models ended up but they seemed to disappear through all of our moving.

These latest additions to Revell’s SnapTite® Build and Play collection replicate their in-game counterparts down to the body detailing and weaponry, snap snugly together without the glue or tools needed for conventional models, withstand the rough-and-tumble of any Halo skirmish, and deliver lights-and-sounds firepower that will help you save humanity from enemy forces.

I was sent the UNSC Pelican and the UNSC Warthog to review.  However, their new line also includes Covenant Wraith and USNC Scorpion.

UNSC Pelican has 37 Snap-Tite pieces and doesn’t require glue, paint or tools.  It has 2 UNSC Spartans pilots, Master Chief and Linda 058.  It also includes a light up cockpit and engine thrusters with positionable wings as well as battle action sounds and an opening rear hatch.  It does have decorative stickers that are easy to apply and it is intended for ages 8 and up.

The UNSC Warthog is what we put together so far.  This one has 53 pieces and also doesn’t require glue, paint or tools.  There are three build your own figures – Master Chief, Kelly 087 and Spartan Fred.  The machine gun lights up and it also has in game battle action sounds.  The wheels are PVC and actually roll with a working suspension.  Intended for ages 8 and up.
