Mega Bloks official vs. custom LEGO Destiny S-10V Sparrow

When I made my Destiny Sparrow MOC back in 2014, I was 100% certain there would never be any official plastic brick-based toys made for the franchise.  People (myself included) were already asking for Mega Bloks to apply their magic to Bungie's latest big game, but hopes were between low & non-existant.  The game was very polarizing in its initial incarnation and I, myself, lapsed fairly quickly.  Destiny managed to hold onto a very strong core fanbase, though, and subsequent expansions & updates improved practically every aspect.

In February 2016, Mega Bloks pleasantly surprised a ton of folks with the announcement that not only had they acquired the Destiny license, but they already had a first wave of sets in production, with more to follow later.  Getting the first sets in my hands rekindled my interest in the game and I've since happily resumed playing.

  1. Jang, I read your write up (and then watched the video), and I saw the other day that you mentioned you hadn't played destiny much since year one.
    Cool to see that you're getting back into it, and I wanted to offer my Clan's willingness to help you run anything you might want to do. The core members are a bunch of super chill guys, and everyone's super willing to help people out.
