Before I start with the pics, let me apologize for the not-so-good quality of the first half of the pics. I wasn t feeling well when I took them. End up taking pics of them while I was in bed, under poor lighting. So again, apologies

And on with the pics! (Click pics to make BIGGER)

The front box art shows off the figures in a neat action situation. Note the Recon Spartan in the window.Halo Toy Review: Mega Bloks Fireteam Stingray

This is what you get in the box. See that the other 3 spartans are not yet built.Halo Toy Review: Mega Bloks Fireteam Stingray

The pieces sorted out and the Spartans built.Halo Toy Review: Mega Bloks Fireteam Stingray

It might be a little hard to tell, with the poor lighting I used during this part of the review, but the base is mostly dark green.Halo Toy Review: Mega Bloks Fireteam Stingray

You make FOUR of these stabilizing legs.Halo Toy Review: Mega Bloks Fireteam Stingray

Attach them and the base is near complete. Halo Toy Review: Mega Bloks Fireteam Stingray

A fairly standard matching gun turret is built next.Halo Toy Review: Mega Bloks Fireteam Stingray

Let s take a look at the figs before the final shot of the set.

Spartan Oceanic Note that on the box art, the cross section on the visor is much thinner than the actual figure. You will find that most Oceanic figs are thicker lines than what is shown on the box.Halo Toy Review: Mega Bloks Fireteam Stingray

Spartan Recon Recons are always great choices for Fireteams as you need a scout to go ahead and report back what s ahead.Halo Toy Review: Mega Bloks Fireteam Stingray

Spartan Warrior This is a pretty standard Spartan by now. Nice choice.Halo Toy Review: Mega Bloks Fireteam Stingray

Spartan Copperhead Okay first, don t let this one fool you. It s NOT Spartan Vale from Fireteam Osiris. One big reason is that the shoulder pads are WAY too big for Vale. There actually is an official Spartan Vale figure out right now in stores as part of the Halo Heroes Mega Bloks series. Still, if you can t find that one, this is definitely a great stand-in!Halo Toy Review: Mega Bloks Fireteam Stingray

And finally, the whole set! A good figure choice all around. Only one oh so small thing about the set that I wish would have been included is a flag stand. Other than that, this is a pretty darn good set! I definitely want more of that turret/base!Halo Toy Review: Mega Bloks Fireteam Stingray

Summary: The build time is extremely quick. You can easily build this during your lunch. Figure choice is good and the base is a good addition to your UNSC forces.

Overall Rating: I give this set 9.75 out for 10 medals.

Why did I give it a 9.75 out of 10?
Just that one little piece for a flag stand. Other than that, this set is spectacular!

Do I recommend it? MOST Definitely!
