ThreeA Master Chief Halo Sixth Scale Figure Up for Order!

Almost every collectibles company to purchase the Halo license has kicked off their line with the Master Chief (or a green generic Spartan looking like the Master Chief). From NECA to McFarlane Toys to Kotobukiya to Funko to MEGA Brands to Joyride Studios, almost every manufacturer includes the Chief in their first wave. But ThreeA Toys has taken a different approach, as they didn’t make the Chief first. In fact, he’s not even in the first two years worth of their Halo sixth scale figures. But the time has come, and the most iconic Halo character ever will be arriving next spring–the ThreeA Toys Master Chief sixth scale figure is now up for order!

Halo Mega Bloks Covenant Scarab Released & Photos!

I said long ago that I had no interest in picking up an XBox One until Halo came to the system, and I stayed true to my word. But with the Halo Master Chief Collection game hitting stores next week, I finally decided to go pick up my limited-edition white XBox One bundle today. On my trip into town to pick up my XBox console, I stopped at Toys R Us on a whim. While there, my eyes lit up to finally see something I’d waited my entire Halo collecting life for: the Signature Series Halo Mega Bloks Covenant Scarab 97964 has now been released!

Halo Mega Bloks Bravo Series Figures List & Photos!

2014 has gone by like a whirlwind, and as crazy as it may be, it’s already time to get psyched up for the Halo Mega Bloks 2015 sets! Even though the absolute earliest we should see the Halo Mega Bloks Bravo Series (AKA Halo Mega Bloks Series 11) figures beginning to arrive is in December 2014, over the past week MEGA Brands has been nice enough to reveal all nine figures that make up the eight different Halo Mega Bloks Series Bravo blind bag mystery packs…

Play Arts Kai Halo 2 Anniversary Master Chief Figure Pre-Order!

If you’re a Halo Play Arts Kai collector, 2014 was a complete and utter bust. That’s not to say that the Halo figures Square-Enix released in 2014 were bad–that would actually be preferable to the actual situation, which is that not a single new Square-Enix Play Arts Kai action figure was released this year. Thankfully, things are already looking up for next year, as the first (and hopefully not only) Halo Play Arts Kai 2015 figure is getting ready to deploy: the huge 11″ Halo 2 Anniversary Edition Play Arts Kai Master Chief figure is now up for order!

NYCC 2014 McFarlane Toys NECA Kotobukiya Halo Photos Report!

As a few of you have noticed, we’re two weeks past New York Comic Con 2014, and I haven’t posted my usual multitude of photos of all the new Halo figures and toys that were on display at the event. No, it’s not that I didn’t attend NYCC 2014–I was there as always. It’s actually that there just wasn’t much in the way of “new” Halo toys to get excited about at the show. But for those who have been waiting, here are my impressions of the Halo figures and collectibles on display at the McFarlane Toys, NECA and Kotobukiya booths…

ThreeA Toys Halo Spartan Gabriel Thorne 1/6 Figure Up for Order!

Spartan Thorne has been a busy man lately! Despite only having a minor role in the Halo 4 video game, we’ve gotten a Spartan Thorne Mega Bloks figure, a Sprukits Thorne figure, and a McFarlane Toys Spartan Gabriel Thorne coming in 2015. But all these figures are just the warmup, believe it or not! The ultimate Thorne is coming next year–the ThreeA Toys Spartan Thorne sixth scale figure is now up for order!

Halo Mega Bloks 2015 Covenant Empire Drone Attack 97511 Set!

Over the years, MEGA Brands has given us hundreds of figures of the Covenant alien races–far more than any other toy manufacturer ever has (and likely ever will). But two major races of the Covenant have been absent from the line–at least, up until now! While my beloved Huragok Engineers haven’t been announced just yet, their much more numerous (and far less intelligent) comrades have: the Halo Mega Bloks Drones figures will debut in the Halo Mega Bloks 2015 Covenant Empire Drone Attack 97511 set!

NECA Halo Master Chief 18″ Figure Photos! Ships October 2014!

If I said I wasn’t getting a little impatient waiting for the first NECA Halo figure to arrive, I would be totally lying. It was still 2013 when NECA announced their acquisition of the Halo license, and we got our first glimpse of the NECA 18″ Master Chief figure prototype way back at the New York Toy Fair 2014 in February. Retailers started taking orders with an estimated summer release date, but that just didn’t happen. But finally–finally–the Master Chief is coming home! Place your orders now if you haven’t done so already–the NECA Halo Master Chief 18″ figure is expected to hit online stores in October 2014!

Hell has officially frozen over, Halo collectors. After over a year with zero new figure releases, today McFarlane Toys announced that in February 2015 Halo 4 Series 3 will be released. And not only is the long-demanded series of figures coming–it’s bringing us perhaps the three most fan-demanded characters from the game: Halo 4 Series 3 Jul Mdama, Commander Sarah Palmer and Spartan Thorne are now up for order!

Halo Mega Bloks Metallic Drop Pods Series 2 Released!

Just when I think I’ve seen every single one of the Fall 2014 Hall Mega Bloks sets, another one (or in this case, four) items show up that I’d forgotten about! While picking up some early Halloween candy at Target (who can resist Reese’s Pumpkins?), I ran across several boxes of a quartet of new Mega Bloks Halo sets that haven’t gotten a whole lot of fanfare: The Halo Mega Bloks Metallic Drop Pods Series 2 are now in stores!

Halo Mega Bloks Mongoose & Emile Review & Photos

Considering all of the top-tier characters and vehicles being released in the Summer/Fall 2014 Halo Mega Bloks sets, it might surprise some people to hear that one of the hottest and hardest-to-find sets at retail is also among the smallest and cheapest. I finally ordered the Halo Mega Bloks UNSC All-Terrain Mongoose 97339 set online after missing it in stores for weeks. Of course, the biggest selling-point of this set isn’t the Mongoose–we’ve got loads of those. No, this set is hot because it comes with the first-ever Mega Bloks Halo Emile figure! Does Emile make it worth buying yet another Mega Bloks Mongoose?

Halo Mega Bloks UNSC Wombat Review & Photos

Halo 3: ODST is easily my favorite of the first-person shooter Halo video games, and the only one that I still play through regularly today. That’s why I’m doubly ashamed that when I walked into the MEGA Brands booth at the New York Toy Fair 2014 and saw the Halo Mega Bloks UNSC Wombat on display, I had no idea what it was. Yes, I know what the Halo Wombat looks like, but I just never imagined MEGA Brands would make a toy of it. Six months later, I ordered the Halo Mega Bloks UNSC Wombat Recon Droid 97451 set online for $10 and now it’s on my shelf. What do I think of the Mega Bloks Halo UNSC Wombat with The Rookie figure?

Mega Bloks Halo Anniversary Battleground Review & Photos

If you had asked me two months ago if MEGA Brands would ever release a Halo Mega Bloks Tartarus figure, I would have likely said “no way”. But that would have been two months ago, and things have changed dramatically since then. After being announced just one month ago, the Halo Mega Bloks Anniversary Battleground set is now available–with the first-ever Tartarus Mega Bloks figure! Is this exclusive set worth your 15 bucks?

Halo Mega Bloks Anniversary Battleground 97519 Released!

Having been jacked up by the excitement and news coming out of San Diego Comic Con 2014 for the better part of a week, I went out to Toys R Us yesterday more out of restlessness than any expectation of finding anything new on the shelves. So imagine my surprise when I waltzed into Toys R Us and discovered not only many of the Halo Mega Bloks Summer 2014 sets (including the Alpha Series), but also the exclusive Halo Mega Bloks Anniversary Battleground 97519 set with Tartarus…

Halo Mega Bloks UNSC Broadsword Unboxing Photos!

I’d been hunting locally for new Halo Mega Bloks sets to no avail, but this week I lucked out when the Summer 2014 Halo Mega Bloks UNSC Broadsword 97380 was briefly available online for the sale price of $53 shipped. It sold out in a couple hours, but mine was already locked in. And while it’ll take me a few days to put together a quality review and photos, here’s some unboxing photos and impressions of the Halo Mega Bloks Broadsword set to tide everyone over…
