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 most exciting addition to this series is the inclusion of not one, but two Promethean figures. The first is the menacing blue-lit Crawler, shown above. This figure is already in huge demand for some Promethean army-building. Fortunately it’s a common one to find in Series 8.
The other Promethean figure is a Watcher, detailed in the same awesome pre-Didact blue lights. The included translucent stand leaves it in a perfect hover formation to protect any nearby Knights from Spartan attacks.
Ready to take down the Promethean forces is a handful of armed Spartans. Starting with this new purple-armoured UNSC Spartan Mark VI, who is armed with a metallic blue-grey Scattershot and ready to use it on nearby Crawlers.
Don’t let the blue visor on this suit of gold armour fool you. The included Reach-era grenade launcher puts the ‘assault’ in this Air Assault Spartan. He’s ready to take on Covenant and Promethean troops at the pull of a trigger.
The ultra-rare figure in Series 8 is this wicked UNSC Spartan Soldier in covert-ops grey. You can see he’s downed his fair share of covies as he’s armed himself with one of their Storm Rifles. This ultra-rare already been spotted a few times and is well worth the hunt.
I may get some flack from the community on this one, but my fave figure of Series 8 has to be this dirty-orange Hazop Spartan with his all-black grenade launcher. I’m a fan of the heavy-duty Spartan figures (EODs and Hazops represent!) and I’ve got a thing for orange armour. Anyways, I think this guy is pretty kick-ass.
Fall 2013 was a pretty great year for fans of Spartan Operators (we got one in both the Mammoth and the Pelican), and it looks like 2014 is following suit. The all-new olive green Spartan Operator in Series 8 comes armed with a Forerunner Scattershot for some close-range annihilation.
If you didn’t pick up all of the 2013 sets, this a pretty great way to get your hands on one of the best Covenant figures released last year. This crimson Storm Elite showed up in the Cobra set but is so awesome he’s showed again here in Series 8. The odds are stacked against him with the five Spartans shown above, and it’s not helping that he’s only armed himself with a deep purple Storm Rifle. Good luck, pal.
And good luck to you in finding Series 8 and picking out the one you wanted! Have you already got your hands on any Mega Bloks Halo Series 8 micro action figures yet? It’s hitting shelves everywhere by Spring 2014.
