Rapid Attack Ghost BOXThis set some is a small box, yet manages to show the set quite nicely. 

Rapid Attack Ghost contentsHere are the contents of the box. I’m not sure why there dis a red “1” on the bag in the top left corner. The instructions do not refer to it as such. Meh, no biggie, just curious is all.

Rapid Attack Ghost sortedHere are all the pieces sorted out. Everything was account for and I even sorted them as they appear in the instruction manual. It didn’t take long at all to sort these pieces, just a few minutes.

Rapid Attack Ghost stepsAs you can see from the above pic, the ghost comes together easily and pretty quick too.

Rapid Attack Ghost FINThis by far is my absolute favorite of any of Mega Bloks Ghost designs to date.

Rapid Attack Ghost weaponsHere are the two weapons included. I’d have liked a painted Spartan Laser and a blue sword instead of pink. Those are minor points though. It’s not enough to detract me from having wanted this set. Oh on that note, I need to thank my wife for buying this set for me.

Rapid Attack Ghost orthoOrthogonal views of the ghost.

Rapid Attack Ghost Elite orthoHere’s the white Elite Zealot. It’s a good figure. I hope Mega Makes this in Black eventually as it would be Jul M’Dama. Well that and he’d need a little hard light symbol above the helmet. Anyway, here’s hoping!

Rapid Attack Ghost Recruit orthoI’ve said before that I love this color for Spartan Armor. I call it “Shark Skin” though in the collecting community it’s referred to as Covert Ops. Regardless of what you call it, it’s a sweet looking figure. The fact that it’s Spartan Gabriel Thorne from Halo 4’s Fireteam Majestic of Spartan Ops, makes this a HIGHLY desirable mini-fig. The only Spartan from Majestic that needs to be made now is Madsen, the sniper. We got Hoya and Grant in the new electronic Pelican (which I reviewed HERE) and DeMarco is the ultra rare mini fig in Series 8 of the blind pack minifigs.

Rapid Attack Ghost leftoversThese were the parts left over. Not much could be built from that, so they went into my spare parts drawer.

Rapid Attack Ghost Action sceneThe ghost is rapidly attacking! (See what I did there?)

Rapid Attack Ghost Hello thereHello there!


Here’s the video review:

Summary: This is a very good small set. Quick and easy to build. You can be playing and/or displaying it in about 10 minutes. The ghost is the best design Mega has ever made for the ship.

Overall Rating: I give this set 9.5 out for 10 medals. Ever so minor is that pink energy sword. I’m just not a fan of that color. Otherwise, everything else in the set is great!

You can see this set and more at Mega Bloks Halo product page HERE.

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!
