Come on and join us in discussing giant bases, customs, conventions and not so great distribution of the best line of all!
Previous thread here >>6506424
Let's try a thread challenge.
Build and profile a custom villain. (Feel free to use MOCs of existing characters you have built)
>Dr. K'vor K'yn
>considered extremely dangerous
>global terrorist, mercenary. usually works with explosives. has assisted competing terrorist groups
>typically armed with a custom, high-powered single shot rifle
>known to be an expert marksman, expert armed combatant
>unmasked face has never been seen
>voice has never been heard
I got mine from Amazon, cost me a little more than it needed to, and was a big risk on paintjob, but he's sweet
Only pic I was happy with, took a crap ton more shots with all my Reds in on the action but they weren't as good. Pretty happy with how the Wasp Reload and Execution/Arrest shots ended up though.
8 don't know what I expected the parachute to be made if, but it wasn't this cool foam. Decent set, worth picking up. I appreciate Mega's apparent willingness to just make highly specialized molds for stuff. "Military parachute? Sure, let's do it right!"
Great pic! Would you mind explaining the parachute a little more? Is it a stable hard foam piece? Thought about getting this but dont want a big cheap parachute if its not well done
Soft and sturdy, it's amazing how much you can crush it, and it will still retain its shape.
Just made my last purchase before heading back to the UK until Christmas. It's been an honor posting with you all this summer.
Would anyone mind if I signed up and just ordered things direct to my person's house? The UK is a Mega wasteland so I wouldn't be able to ship it myself until at least Dec 20, so it'd be late unless I did that.

Why stop? Just because you aren't buying the newest stuff means you have to stop posting. Review that nice haul of yours, post pics of those, give us you'r opinion on upcoming stuff, etc. There's many ways you can contribute.
Oh, I don't intend to stop, I more meant being able to contribute with new photos. Only taking a small amount with me, so I'll do what I can, but still.
I know this is sort of a Hail Mary at this point but guess I'll give it a shot in this thread too, done spamming after this.
I'm still looking to buy the translucent purple Spartan from the Echo series.
Just give me your asking price or I can make an offer, whatever works for me. If he's missing certain accessories that's fine too, just lmk the condition.
Just email me if you have one you're willing to cut loose. I could also potentially trade but I don't have much to trade with.
I posted this in the previous thread and didn't see that we already moved over. I wanted to say thanks to you faggots for getting me into this recently. I never would of thought that I enjoy these so much.
What's the best COD aircraft set? Is it one of the helis?
Stick around, Mega can most likely only go up
The blackhawk or the harrier, depending on what you like.
Tha blackhawk goes for a high price now. Also good is the current Apache heli, which for now you could find on discount.
are there any figures you've gone above & beyond to army-build? I picked up a lot of CoD zombies & Terminators but I have gone truly nuts in collecting Foot soldiers. I just feel like now that the TMNT line is basically over, we'll never see a henchman figure like the Foot again.
Not really. I bought four Heavy Borgia Guards because they were cheap on Hollar and I'm desperate for some modern Mega knights, but that's all, and that's hardly above & beyond.
I'd love to get a bunch of ODSTs, though. They're by far my favorite Halo design the best looking figures in that line, too. Only have the Heroes Buck so far, though.
My first attempt at a comfy outpost / small firebase. I need a few more desert outposts and storage containers to fill it out.
More turrets are always a good things.
I just threw together this little ruin since I picked up another discounted outpost yesterday.
I was definitely picking up those foot soldiers when they were $1 a piece. You just couldn't beat that.
Seeing the price of the Terminator multi pack makes me want to see an individually packed T-800 in the Heroes line more and more.
This. For the first few years of sets there were exactly three Jackals and they came in big/hard to find sets (two with the Shortsword, one with the Red Hornet). When Series 6 included one as a Common I was all over it, I'd always wanted to do a shield wall like in the Halo 2 demo vid.
I'm 33 anon. When Pokemon got popular in my country I had started collecting Mcfarlane, so Pokemons weren't as edgy as the stuff I liked. I did download pokemon go, but couldn't be bothered to play more than once or twice. Now it just doesn't seem particularly interesting.
>Gave himself that name due to a paint application error on his visor giving him an angry evil look
>severe hatred and malice towards Mega Construx
>seeks to avenge and redeem those that have errors due to Mega's negligence
>has an array of weaponry and vehicles from different toy lines
>Highly dangerous and angry
>"Oh, you think the errors is your ally, you merely adopted the error. I was born with it, painted by it."
>I'd love to get a bunch of ODSTs, though
See, this is why the old two-piece Drop Pods were good...
>Grunts and elites from blind bags/Halo villain Hero figs. There are so many more good guys than bad guys among the halo heroes and blind bags you gotta get every enemy you can
Another reason why the Cryopods are inferior, IT'S ALL FUCKING SPARTANS!
All these bases getting posted makes me want to set mine up again
Was a nice outing today, resupply run for a far-flung early warning and air interdiction outpost.
Beans, bullets, bandages fly in, captured Covie weapons fly out.
Been itching to use the smuggler ship in a setup and this is the first chance I've had, sometime I'll do more of a spaceport setting maybe.
>Genetically modified prince of a world that valued strength in battle above all, but quickly grew bored of ruling after defeating all usurpers and pretenders, having been raised to fight since infancy
>Left his world to find new challengers no matter the planet, dimension or era, occasionally lending his strength to evil solely in hopes of fighting whatever champion arises in opposition
>Respects the will to fight in opponents
Anyone else have issues with peices cracking/breaking? I know these are clear but I also had a greay tri clip on one of the huver bikes break too. Also how the hell does the warlock hold his bomb?
Clips can get kinda fragile, so just don't brute force them.
The bomb goes in his hand.
>What do you think?
Nice use of those TMNT background pipes!
after a job well done the squad returns to Forge. only to be told that they were in fact supposed to defend the tank and not destroy the tank.
another angle on the base
Alright you're in charge of the next wave of Halo bloks (or whatever line you prefer), must include the following
>2 Battle Packs
>5 Main sets including a Warthog variant
>Signature Series set
>Half-jaw, Carter, Lasky (or Capn Keyes), FOTUS, H3 EVA, Recruit (that variant with the faded helmet, you know the one)
>Jackal pack with updated articulation
>Arctic Spartans, or just a pack of Spartans with an Arctic terrain piece
>Reach Rocket Hog with Blue Spartans
>343 Guilty Spark, small chunk of Forerunner architecture with some Flood and Halo CE Marines
>Warzone base with Warden Eternal
I had thought I saw an extra He-Man yesterday, but someone must have gotten it. Gonna check a few other stores in my general region that sell Mega for you. Not like I have much else better to do, like I said I leave Thursday and all my friends have already gone off to school.
>Jorge, Kurt, Haka, Brute Chieftain, Promethean Soldier, Hazop Spartan(Reach variant)
Time for covert ops act 2: this time it's posable
>covert ops ODST troop pack, flood troop pack
>covert ops rockethog
>covert ops hornet
>covert ops mongoose
>covenant AA gun
>scorpion siege, a scorpion and a small covenant base
TRU still running their 30% off all mega bloks. grabbed another recon outpost, juggernaut, brutus, and my first armory crate.
Gonna be blowing up my old base tonight and starting over, building two separate bases for good/bad guys. Cant wait to do some comfy base building.
Final count of assorted basic blocks, figures added for scale
Curved 1x2: 94
I still have yet to count the other assorted parts, will get around to that eventually.
Some other random bits.
Btw, they usually only ever have one type of wing piece, so I grabbed a few to make some interlocking doors with
Is this rare? Should i get it now? 30% right now at toys r us
Amazon had this guy for $20
Skeleton just got a new monster to command.
He's older is the issue, I've been scouting eBay all month for him too. I moreso just need the body than the armor and all that just to finish a custom I'm trying to make.
Are people having a hard time finding this? Amazon has it listed right now, and if anyone in the US can't get it and needs someone to pick it up my local Wal Mart had a full set of them just two days ago.
Going to physical stores to pickup new sets feels so much more gratifying than ordering online, also helps that in the store you can find a set that wasn't wholly covered in that silver spray.
Very true.. But for what it's worth they seemed to go way easier with the silver spray/dry brush compared to the previous set. All the ones I looked at seemed mostly ok. From the ones I saw Chief is primarily the only one that seems to suffer from it being overdone.
Toronto guy here.
Are there any places in the city that have any of the Hero figs or army builder sets. (or Xenos/ He man stuff) Amazon.ca and Toys r us suck shit for that. The Walmart "Superstore" on Keele has a scattering of CoD and Halo stuff but nothing really. The TRU on steeles (as of a month ago) had Star Trek and some of the stuff I can get in Dollarama for cheaper.
Current building a soon to be blow put base for my fire team.
...Also, on another note, I was in a Gamestop today, and I saw these on BOGO free at clearance price. Disappointed they had no other Mega stuff, but I'm just going to use them as a futuristic police force or something. Cost me $1.55.
I saw these on the online store, gonna have to swing by my local one and see if they have any.
Also a nice charming home for call of booty times.
I wish they could do more jets. Area 88 Mega would make me go bankrupt.
TFW F8 Crusader, F5E Tiger II, F14, A10, A4, F4, MiG 21, MiG 25, MiG 15/19 etc.
And Shin, Mickey, Greg, Boris etc. mini figs
Is this set any good? Its dirt cheap in a few places, I really just want Jorge. I guess the truck is ok.
The truck is great cuz you can mod it slightly to hold one of the shipping containers, and both figs look great (Plus two drones, some clear flying base parts, and a bit of terrain that goes well with the CoD stuff)
Pull the trigger, anon
Finally got around to setting my base back up while waiting for Destiny 2 to launch. Some kind of communications tower thing.
Welp I did this and stupid app bugged out so I was double charged but only show one order. So ether I will have a LOT of new cod guys or hopfully not have paypal pull that second charge.
The room on top of the tower can be removed completely (Because I couldn't find a way to attach it that wouldn't leave some kind of gap somewhere)
Yhe nest shot i could get of the imside of the room on the bottom floor. There are a couple guardians in there, a computer terminal, and the walls are lined with weapons
Final one, a warlock pizza party, because I have 5 of these guys from buying so many sparrows
Sword master gives a rousing speech to the new grunt reinforcements. everyone was enthused by it, aside from the brutes.
Think I'll clear my GameStop out when I go to pick up D2 tomorrow lads
>Regret, high council elite, Miranda Keyes, Ripa Moramee, Mickey, EOD Spartan
>flood battle pack
>proper ODST battle pack, the Bullfrogs from reach
>another ghost, but with a new design and different shade if purple, just to fuck with collectors
>H3 era Banshee
>Troop Transport Hog, in that champagne color, with Yankee style Marines
>Grizzly Vs Goblin
>Banished Blisterback with ODSTs and a drop pod for muh trailer scene
>Signature Series Firebase
Mini-haul while I wait for my Amazon orders. Nothing but Charlie bags in Australia I swear, went all the way to Echo then took a huge step back
ok last one for me till my gamestop haul gets here. troops are setting up the base and getting ready for reinforcements.
Not to turn this into a "look what I bought" general, sorry about that. But seriously, everyone check your GameStops. With all discounts and the B1G1 Free, this cost me less than $15. The employee said I could take the extra Cabal set for free as well, seeing as it was shelfwarming and it was the last one.
I'm making one last trip tomorrow, before my flight. If nothing else (and if you're a patient man), I can just watch online for when they actually roll out. Assuming they do, I can order them to my house in the US and send you the two I bought for myself the other day.
I'm quite happy with it... I posted that "last big purchase" thing a few days ago, but little did I know I'd find some absolutely killer deals right after. Once my flight gets in on Friday, I'm gonna do some of that comfy base building while I adjust to the time zone.
The Pokemon Mega Construx TRU exclusive. Looks like a pretty fun set but I think I'll have to pass.
So I was thinking about the stuff posted in the lego general and I would love for mega to do some kind of out there fantasy monster line. The vikings / history line came out of nowhere so maybe we could see something someday...
I didn't realize the Sparrows were $10 bucks at TRU. Count the 30% off and I got the white cabal guy pack for 7 bucks which ain't too bad. If you can still find the classic tmnt stuff most of it's on super deep clearance too.
I guess I haven't been paying much attention but the Halo Elite Guard was in a refresher wave? I saw it everywhere, while a few months ago it was impossible to find.
>go looking for pokemans sets
>only one store in the whole country stocks them
>$48 for charzard and $58 for garydos
collecting mega in australia is suffering, can't wait for amazon to set up shop here next year
So my current selection of MB. Gonna have to set up a siege of the house.
Also got lucky at wally world was just lookong for the marine but yoy gotta have an alieum to kill him. Then I noticed the paratrooper hidden in the back and seeing all the good remarks here I decided to splurge.
I like him, well worth the $30, even more worth the $20 on sale.
These zombies are a lot of fun to take pics with. Gonna break up this little piece of environment and combine it with my main base and make the basement a zombie basement for future photoshoots. Would suggest any set with a group of zombies plus Brutus and Juggernaut sets for the environment pieces
Was thinking about backstory to the new single card series and how the franchises can interact:
He-Man and Skeletor (per the start of New Adventures of He-Man) are flung to another planet, where they encounter Picard and Hudson being held prisoner by a cosmic horror forcing them into games of life and death.
Borg and Xenomorph are natural enemies. The Borg, for all of their assimilation of other alien life, outright know the Xenomorph is death incarnate and have a kill on sight order inside their hive-mind programming. Meanwhile, due to the process that turns people into Borgs, the flesh of a Borg is toxic to Xenomorphs and kills facehuggers that try and impregnate a Borg.
Hudson doesn't care much for Picard, who's too talky and not actiony enough for his liking. He-Man and Picard get along, though He-Man finds Picard's desire to form an alliance with Skeletor so they can escape, foolish. Skeletor meanwhile, is willing to work with Picard in hopes of turning him against He-Man.
The only Halo character I own is Forge, so I'm going with the angle that Picard and Forge have a friendship but Forge doesn't fully trust Picard/Federation being so altruistic. Picard doesn't judge Forge given (in my shared canon) he was rescued by the cosmic horror and forced to fight monsters to live, a little bit longer than Picard has.
I also toss in the idea that Hudson is a gushing fanboy over how manly Forge is (which he can't stand) and that Forge legit is disturbed by the Xenomorph and Borg, in terms of them representing something even more macabre and grotesque than the Covenant Empire.
Thanks, not enough love for the WW2 guys. Wish I'd picked up the half-track and Sherman back when they were available but I'll get the jeep sometime at least.
Hi guys im wondering if you can help?
Im wanting to make some bank robbers in Lego that look like simplified versions of the GTA V crew, however i cant find any minifig scale duffle bag type bags for any small figurrs, and i thought Mega might have made one for the WW2 or call of duty lines?
Any ideas or recomendations to help me make my heist crew?
Looks like the Reds have the Blues beat again
But the Blues have hired Green Team and when Green Team rolls, they roll hard
Battle was won but the Blues were hit with the dirty double cross
Can you imagine?
>next Halo game
>small group of Spartans crash land somewhere
>explore abandoned facilities
>hmm, what are all these acid marks?
I'd play the fuck out of that.
We are reaching dangerous level of comfy. I may need to get one more container just do something like this.
What about the big Terminator truck?
Officially back in the U.K. now. Decided to bring most of my COD/Destiny stuff here -- I never really displayed it in the US, so I thought I may as well bring it with me here. I'm enjoying the COD stuff a lot more than I did initially.
Not the best base in these threads (just four small sets in one place), but I plan on improving it.
I would definitely get some of these. Better than the shitty stone golems they made. They didn't even recolor any of the rock monsters.
Well I don't know shit about Destiny, but for $7 I wasn't going to pass this up at Gamestop. Unfortunately it was the only set they had so I got a Pokémon mug for the bogo promotion.
I may use it for all those concrete colored blocks or rework it into a Cobra troop drop ship or something but it's a pretty sweet build. And I appreciate Mega's odd dedication to giving things opening engine compartments.
This set is a great deal on clearance, top tier fig and weapon too
Welp part of my gamestop order came in. Rest got split into 2 other shipments. Have 4 more troop packs and 4 assualt packs coming. I noticed the troop packs said chosen at random in the pick but this atlas one is what what pictured but the assualt pack did not say anything but I got COD horse instead of the little tank drone. Not complaining though would rather have some variety although a tone of power armor teoopers would be cool, so its just gonna be a surprise.
I reworked and widened the front so two guys could stand in it. So like the "hood" flips up to a shield and it acts like a little gun boat. Hopefully my efforts were worth it.
Or you can close up one extra guy in the front of it.
Welp lost a grenade when popping it out of the tray oh well.
I checked three Gamestops while running errands the other day - none had any, or said they had stocked much to begin with.
TRU clearance stuff is long gone, and even with 30% off its still expensive (only one in the metro area)
Walmart only had Heroes (new line, COD, Halo), no sets at all. Got a Skeletor
Not to continue making the international anons feel bad, but part of my Gamestop order came in today. Still waiting on two troop packs, one smaller set, and two more Reyes.
Ordered this bad boy on Ebay, maybe paid a little more than necessary but I am hyped
>tfw I had it in my hands at Target several years ago but passed up on it
Seems so I will post later this week whenthr rest comes in. I wouder if The orders are being aplit becouse its pulling randomly from diffrent stores or are they trying to send a mix out to people.
Yeah both the troop pack and assault pack are "random".
The assault pack varieties seem to be
-little robot tank
-that flying hover bike
Not sure what all else you can get with the troop packs.
I'd jump on the deal while you can.
Do post with an update. I have 5 Sparrows/Troops packs/Assault Strikes being delivered back home today, but won't be able to open them up until Christmas, so I'd be interested to hear what others get and if it'd be worth a second order.
Ive got a thread challenge for the next thread, please put it in OP or I can post it soon after.
>Thread challenge: two of your figs become an unlikely buddy cop duo. Post a pic and a brief description of the characters and/or the outlandish situation that finds them working together
