Ever wonder how much work goes into some of the massive builds we make for events? Well I’m the same way! So I recently visited our Creative Shop and asked a few questions about the process of putting together an impressive build I know very well – the 420,000-piece Halo Promethean Knight!
There are certain vehicles in the Halo universe that have become totally iconic to its very existence. The warthog has appeared in every Halo game since Combat Evolved, and also made a fair number of appearances during the six-year run of the Mega Bloks Halo line. It’s nearly as iconic to the series as Master Chief’s Mark VI green and gold helmet.
There’s already some great buzz online for this season’s three new micro-fleet sets. A mini Spartan helmet and an armed Spartan micro action figure accompany a micro-scale version of one of our bigger builds. But is the coolest accessory in these sets hidden around back? It will be for some collectors!
Just like in the Halo games, you’ll run across a lot of Ghosts when you look back at the whole series of Mega Bloks Halo sets. At last count, we’ve made five differently-designed Ghosts that appear in seven different sets. And I’m here to unabashedly tell you that this one’s the best. Hands down.
Mega Bloks Halo Series 8 micro action figures are already showing up on shelves and the collecting and comparing has begun! Which ones will YOU get?
The UNSC’s Pelican Gunship gets an updated Halo 4 design. It now comes equipped with new lights and sounds weaponry to unleash havoc on unsuspecting enemy targets including an epic light-up Promethean Knight Battlewagon!
The UNSC is issued an old reptile with new fangs to sink its teeth into Covenant units as Mega Bloks Halo unleashes the UNSC Anti-Armor Cobra in all of its rail gun glory! Excitement doesn’t nearly cover what I’m feeling when finally – after 5 years – The UNSC Cobra has been given its own build by Mega Bloks Halo!
Another day closes at the Javits Center in New York City. Another long NYCC day behind us. That’s not to say we got nothing accomplished. Because today was declared ‘Halo Day’ at Booth 1906. And Halo Day is always worth talking about.
As the manager of Mega Bloks’ social media, I spend a lot of my day chatting with and listening to fans. Questions, requests, and future set ideas abound among the Halo community. And I’ve seen countless lists of dream vehicles – vehicles from the Halo universe that fans want to see in Mega Bloks form. There is one mainstay on those lists – the UNSC Mammoth.
One Halo fan favourite vehicle gets a major overhaul and another old school Covenant unit makes a comeback when the Mega Bloks Halo UNSC Hornet vs. Covenant Vampire face off in a battle for air supremacy.
