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.
