Good deal. I checked Amazon and it says I already bought it a few months ago -- for $34.99. So, this is better. [] says this is now a "Retired Product"

Lego is made in Denmark, no?

They are headquartered in Denmark, and I believe they still have their primary production facility there. However, they are also now producing bricks in Mexico and China, and there have been complaints about the quality of some of the newer bricks supposedly coming out of China. That being said, they still have the best quality control in the industry.

Cobi, in Poland, is supposed to be nearly the same with some complaints oversome unsightly injection marks on some bricks, otherwise being equal in design. Since they make historical military kits, which Lego will not make due to ethical considerations, they are popular for that reason. Their minifigs are nice except the heads, which are - odd.

Mega Bloks has opened a brick manufacturing facility in Canada, where they are headquartered. There were known as a second rank manufacturer, but over the last couple of years they have been making Halo and Call of Duty sets that are easily the equal of Lego. Some of their sets, like the Minions Advent Calendar from last year that were supposedly sourced from China have received terrible reviews.

My son makes both Lego and Mega Bloks with me (his sister is more into Technics and Architecture). The Mega Bloks Halo/COD sets are actually as well, if not at times, better designed than some of the Lego vehicles of equivalent size. They also use small special pieces to make sure the sets DO look like the game/real vehicles they represent.

They have a new minifigure design due to Lego turning their Patent (good 21 years) into a 3D European Trandemark (good forever). You do have to put them together which can be tedious. On the other hand, they are truly more posable, and often can equipped with a plethora of weapons/armor/packs/et al. They are more versatile, though if you grew up with Lego minifigs they are very different - more like a miniature action figure.

The bricks are a little harder to push together, and they build up more assemblies it seems than many of the specialy lego sets using larger specialty pieces (like Ninjago). They also tend to hold up a little better to rough play, but since the vehicles they are based on are military, is it a design issue or an issue that what they are copying is a designed to be more durable to begin with. He loves both, so it's not that important, I've just wondered some myself.
