Finally got through the biggest Elves structure set of the season, and now there just remain a couple more sets to cover before I can finally bring together all of the dragons & dragon eggs at once.

I know I say this a lot, but this truly is yet another set that is much better than I initially expected. I got a strong awkward Chima vibe from pictures with a sense of too-obvious action features and a forced transformative feature. In reality it's all surprisingly slick and natural, a perfect fit for play with other sets & settings from this theme.
A quick video on one of the nice little polybag sets you've seen me pull out of a recent Bricklink haul.

As promised in the Spirit review, here's a look at all of the really big Mega Bloks halo builds together, with a focus on comparing the Spirit to its predecessors. Funny how my beloved FUD doesn't look so enormous anymore.
One more major build completed & review produced! Though it doesn't specifically say "Signature Series" on the box, this is the flagship set to anchor the entire 2016 MB Halo lineup.
A bit of an enigma to behold, it appears astonishingly solid from the outside, yet it is actually quite hollow. It is structurally sound, yet light in weight. It's good!

Just wanted to let it be known that I've gotten the thing because there have been a lot of folks asking about it. It'll take awhile to sort the parts & build it, though.
Is this how it's going to be for ever? Will there really be a unicorn-style Target-exclusive troop pack that never gets released in the US, every single year? We're two for two so far...
