Working on a big Halo Mega Bloks build/review

Yesterday, I got the new Halo Mega Bloks UNSC Troop Elephant. Since we had company over for a bit, I couldn’t get to the build much, other than sorted half the pieces.

Today, I finished sorting and am about 60% of the way through the build. I look to have this built tomorrow. After which I’ll get the photos ready for the review and will have that up Tuesday.
