Halo Toy Custom: Mega Bloks UNSC Lookout Tower

Continuing on with the recent Custom craze, I decided to make something new from the “Countdown” set. (Previously reviewed here.)

This is a two parter. In this part I took all of the green bloks (with a few exceptions) and made a small but strong looking Lookout Tower. There’s a room underneath, a set of steps and of course the actual area to lookout from. This was an easy build and while not “exciting,” I think it fits the role I wanted it for.

Here’s what I got:

Orthogonal views:

Finally here’s a top down view. (Sorry for the fuzziness) This shows the grating pieces used and that there is a small “step-up” within the top of the tower.

Again, nothing but parts from the Countdown set was used.

Simple, I know. So what do you think of it? I think it makes a good counter to the Covenant one.
