The ODST figure itself is spectacular. The dark grey, silver and black is pretty standard. It’s the Yellow details on the armor the compliment the stripes on the pod that help to make this ODST stand out.
Summary: The set is quick build. Just a few minutes. Same build as the other modern pods. The yellow stripes really do make this set.
Overall Rating: I give this set 9.5 out for 10 medals.
Why did I give it a 9.5 out of 10?
• The only small thing (and it really is small) is that the ODST doesn’t have a small weapon to use. An added magnum or SMG would have been great, but it wasn’t necessary.
Here’s my opinion on the break down of the value of this set. (In US dollars)
• The figure with its weapon and stand is $3.50.
• The Drop Pod I feel is worth $6.50.
TOTAL: $10 (before tax and in U.S. dollars)
Given that the set costs $10 US before tax, I find the value on par.
Do I recommend it? YES! Of all the pods to come from this line, I think this one is my all time favorite. The color scheme is awesome and those stripes just make complete sense.
