The pictures really don't do this set justice. It looks a lot better in person. I do miss the sliding canopy though. I really hope they make an updated Halo Wars Pelican in this color scheme, though. Maybe with two pilots and a handful of the new Halo 3 or Halo Wars 1 style marines with the same color scheme as the Pilot. I own, (including duplicate sets) over one-hundred and seventy Mega Construx/Mega Bloks sets and this one feels different. It feels higher quality than all of the other sets I own. It just doesn't have the part fitment flaws that most Mega Construx sets have.
