MB Micro-Fleet Warthog Attack Package
I’ve said it many times before that I really love the white border packaging. It makes the box look clean and less cluttered. The back of the box shows the other two Micro Fleet sets currently available.

MB Micro-Fleet Warthog Attack 4rnr-baseHere is the mini Forerunner structure included with the set. As I explain in the video, the structure technically can stand on it’s own, but those little 1×1 slope pieces are free floating and not connected to the structure. So, I made a modification to this build as seen below:

However, add it to the back and stand it upright as shown to the right and you’ve got a structure that can stand on it’s own without any free floating pieces.

MB Micro-Fleet Warthog Attack MinifigIf you do not have a “Master Chief” figure, then this is a good choice to get him. While not the same as the one in the Forward Unto Dawn set (which has different markings), it’s close enough.

MB Micro-Fleet Warthog Attack Complete setA neat little set.

Here’s the video review:

Summary: A quick set to build. I think there was a misprint in the number of pieces though as it’s less than 93. I’ve been asking Mega for years to make mini vehicles and ships. This is a great start. Might there be more Micro Fleet sets to come in the future? I’m betting on it.

Overall Rating: I give this set 9 out for 10 medals. If it were a little less in price it would have got a 10. NOTE: I did receive this free from Mega. So while the price didn’t affect me here, I’m still giving my honest opinion.

You can see this set and more at Mega Bloks Halo product page HERE.

Thanks for reading and let me know what you think of the review. If you have this set yourself, please give me your thoughts on it too!

  1. I for one really enjoyed these micro fleet sets as they are a fresh new concept to the line and there’s actually quite a bit packed into these little sets. As well, I was reading about these in the blog on the Mega Bloks website and it does say there is at least one more micro fleet set to come later this fall as well as “a bunch more goodies”.

    • I already know what the fourth set is. But I can’t say what it is… I love knowing, but don’t love that I can’t share the info. Such is the agreement made though.

  2. I love all three of the sets, great review. And just FYI according to the box this IS a chief figure.
