MB Brute Battle Unit FRONT
As always the packaging is great. MEGA did a nice job of showing the Active Camo Brute against a black background within the package.

MB Brute Battle Unit SORTEDAll the pieces sorted. I never use these bloks and plates as figure stands. Instead I use them for dioramas. 

MB Brute Battle Unit Marine SGTYes, more Marine Sergeants! Hopefully this will come as an African American version as well so we can finally get Sgt. Johnson from the games.

MB Brute Battle Unit Spartan SecurityThough I’m not particularly a fan of the Security armor, I know many fans are. The toy figure looks great, so no knocks there.

MB Brute Battle Unit Brute ChieftanThis is only the second time we’ve seen this come out in an official set. The other being the Brute Chopper. This version is all dark grey. I’d have liked a little more paint detail here. Still, it’s a great figure. The headdress is semi-flexible so it won’t be easy to break.

MB Brute Battle Unit Brute StalkerWoot, woot! An active camo figure! You all know I just LOVE translucent toys. This is the Brute Stalker. The detail in this sculpt is exceptional! Hard to tell from the pics as this is active camo. Just trust me, it’s awesome!.

Summary: No real build to this other than the stand if you choose to do that. This set is ready to play with, out of the package. This has a nice selection of UNSC and Brute forces.

Overall Rating: I give this set 9 out for 10 medals. I’m not a fan of the Security Spartan. Not the sculpt mind you, just the armor in the game in general. As well, maybe a little more paint on the Brute Chieftan and this would have at least a 9.5. Still a great set and I recommend getting it.
