Even though this is late, I’ve noticed megabloks has gotten better bricks in the 2014 sets. Sure, I’ve built Legos since I was,like, 2, but megabloks have grown on me (halo). I absolutely love the halo figures and can’t wait to see sets for the master chief collection. I am really liking how many games they are recreating in bricks. (Halo ce, halo 2, halo 3, halo:odst, halo reach, and halo 4.) I also am extremely excited for the spartan tribute pack. Fell free to express your opinions, please, and tell me if you agree.
I’ve gotten a couple of megabloks sets. First was a Spiderman helicopter. JUNK. Second, NeoShifter. AWESOME. Third, Halo Versus Red Team Weapon Pack. Incredibly Incredible. And cheap. Megabloks I buy, legos, I get as gifts.
Jacob, thanks for sharing your thoughts. The Megabloks minifigs are certainly interesting. In fact I bought several of them recently just to try them out (Spartans, and Call of Duty). 🙂
Megablocks are okay if you want to build a model, put it on a shelf, and never do anything with it. Most models I’ve seen or had are basically a interior made of generic XxX blocks and plates, with a shell of custom hull panels on the outside. There’s no effort to use a set of existing swept and curved pieces to acheive a desired result, they just print a new part. And the parts are pretty crappy. I don’t think I’ve ever broken a LEGO, but in the 2-5 MegaBloks kits me and my brother ever had, we broke at least 2-3 parts.
