  • Over the weekend I had to give a rare negative review to the Halo Mega Bloks Covenant Armory Pack II set, which disappointed me by being something the majority of Halo Mega Bloks sets I review aren’t: below average. But as much as that set concerned me, the UNSC Armory Pack II 96996 with its white Spartan Air Assault figure earns back my faith by being a well-done, worthwhile addition to the Halo Mega Bloks collection…

  • After the disappointment of the Covenant Armory Pack II, I had some trepidations that the UNSC Armory Pack II might share some of the some flaws. In particular, I was afraid the figure included might be as under detailed and lacking in paint applications as the yellow Elite Commando figure was. Thankfully, that isn’t the case.

  • Considering this set is 22 pieces (including the figure and guns), the build for the Halo Mega Bloks UNSC Armory Pack II 96996 was never going to be especially challenging or time-consuming. The whole set can built in under a minute by even the biggest Mega Bloks novice, and the base looks a lot better overall than the Covenant Armory Pack II’s did, even though they’re very close to being the same–sometimes the little things make all the difference.

Overall: The Halo Mega Bloks UNSC Armory Pack II 96997 is just an all-around better set than its Covenant counterpart. The white Mega Bloks Spartan Air Assault figure looks stupendous, and the alternate white Spartan HAZOP head is a welcome bonus. The guns aren’t anything special, but they’re not as stale and overdone as the painted Needle Rifle is becoming. The Armory itself is still really small and sort of lame looking, but for some reason it looks and feels more like a legitimate weapons rack to me than the purple lump from the Covenant Armory Pack II. This set isn’t anywhere near amazing, but for a $6 purchase, it’s fairly well-done and includes the parts to make one of two great all-new Spartans. Recommended.
