MB ODST Battle Unit FRONTFantastic display of figures in the package. No mistaking what’s in there.

Here  is what you get in the package. Note the Hunter’s spikes are in a small plastic bag hidden in the package. So dont’ mis that if you open your set. I wish the Spartan Laser has some extra paint detail, but that’s a minor thing. Same with the needler. Again oh so minor.

MB ODST Battle Unit GRUNTThe grunt has a nice mustard gold color to his armor. I do wish MEGA would make the skin color the lighter more game accurate color, but as I’m a Pittsburgh Sports fan, this is a Black and Gold grunt, which is A-OKAY with me!!!

MB ODST Battle Unit ODSTThe painted ODST in this set is AWESOME! You could say this is either the Rookie or Sgt. Buck from Halo 3 ODST (the game).

MB ODST Battle Unit Active Camo ODSTAH YEAH! Translucent figures are ALWAYS a hit with me!

MB ODST Battle Unit GOLD HunterThough not game accurate in color, this is sure to be a prized possession by kids and some collectors alike. Hunters are already in short supply in the Halo Mega Bloks line, so it’s great that they made another one. I consider all gold variants the leaders of their respective races. So this is my Hunter Leader. 

MB ODST Battle Unit setThe gang all say HI!

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 is great for those among you who are army builders. More ODSTs are always welcome in my book, especially the painted one in this set. Grunts are fun to have in an army too!.

Overall Rating: I give this set 9.5 out for 10 medals. If the set had an active camo back pack and the grunt/hunter were game accurate colors, this would have been a 10 out of 10.

Thanks for reading/watching!

    • Hmm, if there was, I do not recall it. I’ll have to check that out. Do you recall what mission?

  1. Yes there was. I think one of the hunters that comes throught that set of doors on the mission where you are Buck is a gold one.

    • Get a screen shot of that if you could. I’d love to see that. Been so long since I played ODST. May need to do that again.
