While I was at Wal Mart today making totally unrelated purchases with my family, I stumbled upon this rather remarkable set in the LEGO/ Bloks aisle.
For the figure and the set itself, it is very nice, but no real surprises. The drop pod sets, unlike some other releases, worked correctly from the get go, so there was no need for refresh between waves, unlike the original Hornet, Banshee, and Warthog sets, which were completely supplanted in later waves.
I like this set quite a bit. The battle rifle makes more sense as the backup weapon for a marksman rather than the MA5C that came with the original sniper, and the new paint scheme on this guy is pretty neat, and ties in well with the other Arctic Camo sets out right now.
