MB Metallic ODST Pod RED Package
The packaging is the drop pod itself, which is a two-part mold. There is a thin sheath of clear plastic that surrounds the pod to keep it intact while hanging on pegs, while waiting to be bought. I just like how they look like hand grenades! Though this one looks more like a piece of fruit, with it being red. LOL

MB Metallic ODST Pod RED Contents
This pic shows the contents of the pod, as well as the pod separated into it’s respective two pieces. The minifigure does not come assemebled. It takes no time at all to put it together though.

The insert sheet shows all four of the sets.

Finally here is the minifig close-up.
MB Metallic ODST Pod RED Minifig

It has a great metallic sheen to it. I really like the teeth markings above and below the visor. The blok the fig stands on comes with it and is imprinted with the word “Halo” on it, in Metallic red ink to match the minifig’s detail color. The red on the figure is more of a Rust/Copper color than straight red. I like it!

Here’s the video review:

Summary: No time needed to build this as it’s just the figure, weapon and its’ stand.

Overall Rating: I give this set 10 out for 10 medals.

For the money, this is a good deal. Consider that the single blind pack minifigs are $3-4, for the same or maybe a dollar more, you get the two-part drop pod. If you’re a fan of ODSTs then these are the sets for you!
