Well; this should be interesting. The Booster Frame set is not a usual set from Mega Bloks, it is actually three sets you have to buy with them you will get the parts and instructions to build it. Today in one post we will have essentially four reviews; our three sets to make the Booster Frame: UNSC C&C Console, UNSC Hanger Deck & Forerunner Terminal; and a final review for the Booster Frame itself.

UNSC C&C Console
Can you build some sort of creation right away?
Outside of the initial creation in the box, no. I stared and stared but could not imagine anything! Maybe I had an off day. The console could possibly work for terrain, maybe so going with a scratch by 0.
Is it at, below or above the Golden Ration? (10 cents per part)
As I can tell the standard price should be $9.99 so we divide that by 60 to get 16 cents per piece! Ouch, but not that surprising for a Halo Mega Bloks set; glad I got it on sale. Though there are some unique parts to these set but we will take a look at that in a second. Minus 10 points.
First, I am going to say that I forgot to take a pic of the marine, all well. It is just too late. A few cheese slopes, some interesting sloped clear bricks, the orange turbine piece keeps catching my eye (I can't help but think Gipsy Danger inspired frame) and the... ingot bricks also look interesting. I think the ingot could be used for interesting armor or on a shield. Also the guns might be could too...if they weren't clear. So I am going to go +5 with this question.
|Do you feel lucky?|
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?
Flat out no, -5.
So for our Console we have a score of -10 for a C+. Very harsh and one of the few low grades I have given but my guts says this might be setting a standard for this post! So unless you are after the Booster Frame or the unique parts in it this set is most likely not worth your time.
UNSC Hanger Deck
Um...yea, more of the same on this one. I got nothing but again the standard build might make could terrain? 0 points given but not taken!
Well same price as its sister set at $9.99 divide by 53 (oh no) gives us 19 cents per part! It got worse with this set but lets take a look at the parts. -10
Again this is certainly a yes. Those cyclinders could prove useful or the 3x2 places with the wings could be armor or how about that 2x1 place with the bars? Got some weapons or barrels that could be used for guns or some...circle plate grate looking round pieces. Giving this a +5
This one is better so...I will say yes for this one giving it a +5
|I like the pistol but not the other gun.|
|The Shotgun is not too bad looking...|
|You call this posing?!!|
I felt bad at this point that out of three sets I got nothing but again could have some possible terrain? 0 points
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio? (I think we know this by now...)
Again $9.99 divide by 0...no wait...that isn't right. Divide by 69! (a bit more hopeful this time) This gives us 14 pennies per part. Darn it, still over for -10.
Some plates, and other interesting parts from its brother sets above except for that 1x3 plate with a bar. Curious piece that one. +5
|Like to see this get used in a build...|
I think there is a bit more potential in this set as well so plus 5 points!
|The Size right but...doesn't quite fit I think|
Even with all the parts combine I still couldn't think of any thing costume so this will just be all Booster Frame, sorry folks.
Certainly looks interesting but certainly can't use it as is for Rapid Attack.
Also as is certainly won't work for Intercept Orbit.
It is both two wide and long along with needing a different base. With some modding in the design though she might be usable as perhaps a Capital Ship?
