This is the second of four sets my wife bought me for Father’s Day. I’m not a dad in the sense of having a human child. But we treat our dog as our “daughter.” So my wife took a little liberty there with calling these Father’s Day presents…
Mega Bloks ODST Recon Specialist (Drop Pod): Set # 97105

And on with the pics!
Well packaged as all of Mega’s drop pods are.
Above shows the contents of his set. Note the weapons.
The pod with it’s doors unattached, attached with flaps deployed, and flaps resting.
The minifigure is cool. While you could make this from other figures, the fact that Mega took the time to make this specifically shows they want to make named characters. I can only guess that there is some kind of licensing thing that does not allow them to name the minifigs as such. Still this IS Dare from Halo3: ODST.
The full set, this pic shows the pod with the tall antennae attached.
Summary: I have to say that this is probably my favorite UNSC Drop Pod. Sure, it’s not game-accurate colors, but wow that black looks awesome and the bronze windows really “POP.” I definitely recommend getting it.
Overall Rating: I give this set 10 out of 10 medals. Yes, I think it’s THAT good!
