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!
Along with the actual micro-fleet UNSC vehicles, getting your hands on the three sets will get you three awesome shelf accessories. Gold-visored helmets that make for an eye-catching trifecta of awesome on any collector’s shelf.
Three killer Mark VI Spartan figures, each in a different colour and armed with a different weapon, including an official Master Chief figure and the killer Incineration Cannon in one of its first appearances in Mega Bloks form.
But the overlooked hero of these sets? The baseplates! These five-layer plates affix to the back of the helmets, but are better used as ground work for complex, multi-leveled battlescapes. Fully compatible with baseplates in other sets you can make some pretty sweet set-ups, as put together below by my much more patient co-worker, Justin. Pretty slick!
All three micro-fleet sets are in stores now – blogpost and more coming soon! A fourth hits shelves this fall along with tons of other cool stuff – keep an eye on the Mega Bloks Collectors Facebook page for all New York Toy Fair sneak peeks and announcements.
