The Cauldron Clash set is one of the hottest sets from our Spring 2013 collection. It includes six new figures with three new weapons, and a sprawling, buildable battle terrain with moving features like ramps and gates.
The set itself is based on the Cauldron, a multiplayer map from Halo 4. It consists of a Forerunner structure bridging over a deadly flow of magma, created with translucent red and orange blocks.
At the end of the bridge awaits an ominous Forerunner spire. What could its purpose be?
This set is jam-packed with features to make battles more dynamic and treacherous. Moving ramps allow the Prometheans to cut off any potential escape routes.
A switch at one end of the bridge can be flipped, causing the gate to explode and be thrown away. Hopefully you won’t find a colossal Knight on the other side.
The Promethean Knight is the largest Halo micro action figure we’ve ever done, surpassing even the infamous Hunter. Every millimetre of its surface is jam packed with detailed moulding and paint accents.
It comes equipped with a Blade Arm and a Scattershot, which can be taken and equipped by UNSC soldiers.
Its massive back has fully functional wings which, when opened, reveal the Promethean Watcher.
The Watcher’s purpose is to offer support by firing at enemies and healing the Knight when it’s damaged. The Watcher is comparatively tiny but still incredibly detailed, with articulated arms, legs, and wings.
The Promethean threat doesn’t end there – also included are two Crawlers, ferocious animal-like enemies that hunt mercilessly. Their heads and (thin, creepy) legs are all attached to the body with articulated ball joints.
This all seems like a very serious threat to the two UNSC soldiers involved in the Clash.
The UNSC Marine included in this set is done a completely new six-color pattern that we’re really proud of. He’s armed with the all-new Designated Marksman Rifle.
Of course, the powerhouse is Spartan as always, and this Spartan is fully loaded with brand new equipment – Soldier armour and the Railgun.
The set includes two aerial display rods that allow the Spartan and Watcher to engage in fierce mid-air combat!
The odds are certainly stacked against the UNSC, but it’s up to you how this battle plays out. Connect it with other battle terrain to expand the action, and share your photos of it on our Facebook page or in the comments!
