This is the third in my weekly series of reviews, and this one is one of the easiest to find.
This set was released in 2010 and came with basic one drop pod, one blue ODST minifigure, and 3.5 accessories. It retailed for $11.99 US and came with 26 pieces.

Weapons and accessories include a silver removable backpack, a painted sniper rifle with a removable bipod, and a painted assault rifle:

The figure's articulation:
Each drop pod has an ODST that seems to correlate to one of the Alpha Nine Characters from Halo 3 ODST. This one is obviously Romeo:
Some photos showing the drop pod and the ODST in landing scenes:
This set, like most of the drop pods, is worth its MSRP. I wouldn't pay more than $20-$23 US for it. Just buy a Call of Duty, Destiny, or older Halo set instead if it costs more than that. like with the Demolitions Specialist, the plastic is extremely brittle and sticks out of the package (due to age) so be careful (see http:herettvchannel.com/t/throwback-reviews-halo-mega-bloks-96863-odst-heavy-weapons-specialist/45031 for a way to make it easier to pose the figure for the first time).
*Under $23 US, go ahead and get it if you want the set
*Over $23 US, not worth it
*See the Demolitions Specialist review, this set has the same plastic quality problems and fixes
