 Big halo fan

This was a gift for my boyfriend and I can’t wait for him to start putting it together. So far I’ve been very happy with Mega Construx Halo products and this one shouldn’t disappoint. Will update in the future.UPDATE: great build and it was nice to see all the intricate details.

 Great Halo set, but can be challenging for some

Being both a fan of the Halo franchise and of Lego and Lego compatible building sets, I decided to splurge a bit and buy this set, and I can't say I regret it. It actually was a bit of a birthday gift to myself, only to be complimented by some friends who got me the Warthog set as well (which I will be figuring out how to modify this set to carry the Warthog).So, thoughts: This set can be challenging to assemble. Lots of thin pieces instead of regular sized blocks (there are some normal sized blocks, but not as many as you might think). There are instructions online for making a UNSC fortress, but I'm only bothering with the Pelican, so I'll talk about that. Part can potentially be lost due to the size, but at least there are a few spares.But take your time and make sure you have a decent work area to assemble this set.I'll also mention that the set struts for the ship are for show only. They cannon support the weight of the completed model; that's what the transparent blocks included are for; to have a transparent stand to properly support the model.Detail wise, this is a pretty good model; easily recognizable as a UNSC Pelican from the Halo games. Although, not exactly a 1:1 scale model to the mini figures included (it should be bigger, with more capacity inside). But I still think it's pretty stellar, both inside and out.It's also designed to open up by spliting in the back, revealing a passenger seat, a cargo crate, some mounted weapons and even a little mini... crane system? A couple of jointed pieces meant to support the Master Chief in the air.Externaly, there are pivoting wings and thrusters, and opening hatched all over the place, and of course, an opening cockpit. There's also a gimmick to have the rear landing struts retract automatically, by pulling some levers on the inside; a cool little feature, although not really necessary.This Pelican seems to be heavily inspired by the trailer for the game Halo: Infinite (including the bearded Pelican pilot who finds Master Chief).Along side the Pilot and Chief is a Covenant Hunter mini figure. All the figures are highly detailed for mini figs, and multi-jointed.All in all, as a brick enthusiast, I enjoyed this set, and it now occupies the top of a bookcase along with the Warthog and the Wolverine I assembled a few years back.Would I recommend this? For an experienced brick enthusiast, yes. Especially if you're a Halo fan. But not for a casual brick fan, nor for a younger child.

 Don't gift this. very complicated and hard to keep together

This thing took over 12 hours of time to put together. some small pieces were missing and had to be worked around. once put together it would come to pieces if is wasn't perfectly opened with all the flaps. Then it was extremely difficult to put together again. Also, it required the clear platform in back to stay up. The rear legs can't take the weight.I deeply regret buying this because it now sites in a corner. If you buy this make sure some you are ready to spend a lot of time on it.

 So upsetting!

This set is way too large to have important MISSING PARTS!!!! we are near the end and we were very meticulous with separating and organizing pieces and putting everything together. We just finally pushed everything together and said forget it! I’m sitting here with my 12 year old about to cry because we are missing pieces!!!! Some of the pieces also break apart very easily after you assemble it. Then we had one part that would NOT fit not matter what we did!!! We had to resort to superglue! This is the absolute WORST set we’ve purchased for over $100. We have master builders in our family and this is NOT our first set. This was a bday gift for my son Thinking about getting a refund. Unbelievable. I added a few pics from some of our other builds too. This set is NOT worth the money and is way too exhausting because of the missing pieces.

 Be Prepared

This is the best designed Pelican model that Mega Construx has produced, full of intricate detail and working, pivoting wings. I would not say that the experience between the building and the finished project is worth the retail price of 150 dollars, however. Buy this set for around 100 dollars or less if possible. With this set, you can recreate the iconic scenes from the first trailers and articles about Halo Infinite, however, the inclusion of only one hunter is disappointing. In the Halo series, hunters come in pairs, and there have been multiple sets released by Mega Constux that have gotten this piece of lore correct. The pelican itself is a beautiful and iconic vehicle rendered in precise detail into Mega Construx form however the process of building it is not seamless nor easy. The construction process is time-consuming and can be painful on one's fingers. The added separator tool is very useful and can help with most building issues. The only issues that it can't solve are the missing pieces. I've bought two of these sets and different pieces were missing from both. The finished products haven't betrayed this fact but the building process was slower and more stressful because of it. The only detail about the pelican I do not like is the ramp. It is not a straight platform but an angled ramp that sits awkwardly when lowered. No pelican in the Halo universe has a ramp built like this and I redesigned the ramps on my pelicans to better suit their purpose, actually allowing someone to enter the vehicle safely.Overall I do not regret buying this set but I will not buy a third one. The set is massive and wonderfully designed with the exception of the ramp. However, they are quite heavy and cannot rely on the built-in landing gear alone to stand. I do enjoy these pelicans but if you are about to buy this set, be warned and be prepared. Not every piece is in there that is needed and the process of building can be tedious, time-consuming, and painful.

 More refined than....the L brand?!

Bought this set for my son for Christmas. He has almost every Halo set from Mega Construx, and this one will be hard to top! Build was challenging for him (he has been building since he was 5 - 11 now), the weight and capabilities of the set made it all worth it! Bags with numbers, more contoured and individualized pieces make this a step up from most sets from the other companies. He prefers the Mega Construx to the other brand that starts with ‘L’ due to the quality of engineering and thought that goes into these sets. Keep these sets coming, Mega....these are better AND cheaper than the competition!

 Best Construx Pelican so far. Better than Lego Star Wars

This a great set for fans of the Halo series of video games and for any fans of construction sets.This particular Pelican is the third iteration of the ship by Construx. In my opinion, the best iteration by far.It is big and has many pieces, thus it can be really challenging for younger kids, due to the complexity and the amount of time it takes to complete the build.The build itself is greatly enjoyable. I actually like that it takes some time to assemble.Once put together the Pelican is very swooshable and solid.The amount of detail is perfect, specially in the rear bay, which can be wide open to increase playability.Highly recommended

 Great Display Piece

The set is absolutely fantastic in terms of details and accuracy, especially for the price. No complaints with the design.However it seems I'm not the only one missing pieces or receiving wrong ones for the engines/wings near the end of the build... although I found workarounds for the smaller pieces, in the first photo you can see that one of the larger ones are noticeably missing. It's been over a week and I still haven't yet gotten a confirmation of replacement pieces being shipped, which has been a pretty disappointing experience. Other than the missing pieces issue, this set wins across the board.

 In my opinion, this is the BEST mega construx Halo build available.

Everything is so well designed! Highly recommended
