Halo Mega Construx PREVIEW: Banshee Breakout

A pic of this set just made the rounds last week and now here we are with a few more shots of it!

While this set is more rounded than it’s predecessor. I happen to like it. The front of this Banshee looks like it can take more damage. Also, note the back wing. Is that a NEW inverse rounded piece? I think so!

This set, like it’s predecessor also comes with a Spartan and an Elite. This Elite appears to be the same as the one in the Heroes 12 line. Though it is more off-white instead of grey.
I’m VERY curious about the choice of Spartan here as it has hints of Jun from Noble team with the Ghillie suit. No confirmation at all, but it would be SWEET if Jun made his return to Halo in Infinite as a Spartan again!

With this set having 218 pieces, I look for it to retail at $20 U.S.

As with all the summer 2020 sets, this too has an alternate build. It’s a Skimmer!
I kind of dig it!
