Mega Bloks Toy Review: Covert Battle Unit set #97070

Covert Battle Unit: Set number 97070

Technical Specifications:
Build Time: 1 minute sorting, 2 minutes build. Total 3 minutes.

Set Piece count: 47
Minifigs: Steel (Shark-like grey) Spartan Mk V w/Red UNSC logo on left chest; Steel ODST with red secondary color, 2 steel marines-1 with goggles, 1 with ggogles and mask.
Weapons: Shotgun, Assault Rifle, SMG, Large Machine gun (with turret assembly
 3 black backpacks, Bubble shield generator
Special Features: Turret assembly can swivel

Price/Value: $18 US

The set has 47 pieces. How that exact number is determined I’m not sure as each minifig is comprised of 14 pieces each. So that would already put the total over 47. If counted a one piece each then the total is way below 47 with everything else. Really though it doesn’t matter. The set is great no matter what the piece count is.

Here are the pics.

Sorry for the flashpoints…

What’s in the box (bagged)

A quick sort and here’s what you’ve got.

Very cool instruction sheet, almost a mini poster.

As you can see from the above pic, you can have a minifig hold the turret or assemble it and have someone gun it.

The bubble shield is easy to assembly. I like the smokey color of this one.

Covert Ops Battle Unit ASSEMBLE!

Summary: A great little set with virtually not build time. The new Shark Steel Covert Ops color is fantastic. I really like the turret assembly. Given that a 4-pack of figs now costs about $13-14 for the extra $4 or so you get the bubble shield, generator and turret assembly. Is that worth it? Well, in conjunction with the rest of the set, heck yeah. I got mine at 50% from Toys R Us’s sale price. As of this writing they are still having a “Buy on get one 40% off” sale, so jump at this set if you’ve got the chance. It’s worth it.

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5 medals!
