With my coverage of New York Toy Fair coming to a close, I’ve still got Mega Bloks toy reviews to do. Here is the last of the 4 current Metallic ODST/drop pod series.
Build Time: N/A
Set Piece Count: 11
Minifigs: ODST (Metallic Green Highlights with Grey Under Armor)
Accessories: 2X4 Blok with Metallic Green “Halo” printed on one of the long sides.
Special Features: Two-part Drop Pod mold (Not a buildable drop pod)
And on with the pics! (Click pics to make BIGGER)
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! The metallic green paint looks great. It makes me think of this ODST as a cross over from being a marine to an ODST.
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. Same as the others, with the exception of a Magnum for the mini figure.
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 green ink to match the mini fig’s detail color. The green ink is a nice medium toned green. Not too light nor dark. These ODST drop pod figs are really well done.
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!

Thanks for reading and let me know what you think of the review. If you have this set yourself, please give me your thoughts on it too!
