I'm planning on making this a weekly thing until I have all of the drop pods reviewed. If a mod could put this in the right topic ("I don't think Lego: Community Reviews" is the right category so I'm putting it in the wrong category ["Community"]).
This set was released in 2010 and came with one jungle-themed drop pod, one green ODST minifigure, and 4 accessories. It retailed for $11.99 US and had 29 pieces.

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. As near as I can figure, this one is supposed to be a not-Rookie a lot of the other characters are more obvious:

Final Thoughts: While this set is worth the original 2010 MSRP, the set is not worth what people are charging for it nowadays. I would not recommend paying more than 25 dollars for it. The set is one of the strongest in the series of 6 and if you can find it under $25, I highly recommend buying it.
I have most of the warthogs (except for 2017-present ones and the convention exclusive one) and some older covenant vehicles; if you guys want a review of those, let me know.
