What do you get for Christmas for the Halo collector in your life (or yourself) who already has everything produced for Halo that costs less than $600? Well, your options are limited in that case, but TriForce has a couple of new suggestions for you–and they’re two of the coolest Halo collectibles that I’ve ever seen! Straight out of the Halo 5: Guardians video game, the Halo 5 Spartan Locke and Spartan Kelly Replica helmets are now available for order! But while every big Halo fan is gonna want these helmets, only 500 are going to be able to get them…Continue Reading →
You may notice the frequency of new posts slowing down again here on Halo Toy News for the next week or two. Why? Well, as some of you may have heard, there’s this new video game that just came out–“Halo 5: Guardians”!
But tonight, let me tear myself away from my XBox One, and let’s take a look at another of the McFarlane Halo 5 figures available for order online now, with a review of Fireteam Osiris member Spartan Tanaka!Continue Reading →
It’s been a while since I reviewed a McFarlane Toys Halo 5: Guardians figure, and since I’m all hyped up for the video game to be released in two days, I figured now was a good time to get back in the habit!
I was ultimately let-down by the Agent Locke figure I reviewed in the summer, but that didn’t stop me from buying one of my favorite members of Blue Team! The Halo 5 Spartan Fred figure is available online now for about 12 bucks shipped–is he worth your dollars?Continue Reading →
A couple weeks ago, a surprise listing appeared on eBay out of literally nowhere for an unannounced Dark Horse Halo Grey Pelican ship replica sporting a “GameStop Exclusive” sticker.
It’s been a tedious wait ever since to see when (or if) the ship would actually be available direct from Gamestop, but the wait is over: the GameStop Exclusive Halo Pelican is now available for order online!Continue Reading →
Halo 5: Guardians may not be released for a few more days, but the Promethean Invasion has begun a little bit early! Although MEGA Brands hasn’t made a big deal about it, one of the final Halo Mega Bloks sets to be released this year has been spotted in the wild (and immediately scooped up to be scalped online): the Mega Bloks Halo 5 Promethean Weapons Customizer Pack has appeared for sale online!Continue Reading →
With the Halo 5: Guardians video game hitting stores in mass next week, anyone who thought we weren’t going to get anything special in the way of a Limited Edition Halo 5: Guardians soundtrack would be forgiven (seeing as how 343 Industries wasn’t exactly forthcoming with the information). But finally, this week Microsoft broke the silence regarding the release of an extra special version of the newest game’s music, and we now know it’s on the way: the Halo 5 Limited Edition Soundtrack is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Just when I thought I was done with my New York Comic Con 2015 Halo coverage, I realize that I’ve forgotten a few things. And the first and foremost among those things is the first thing I visited and photographed at NYCC 2015: the Dark Horse booth Halo ship replicas display! While I already ordered the first three Halo ships online, I’ve only received one and haven’t opened it yet. But based on the Halo 5 Prower and Banshee shown at NYCC, we’ve got a lot to look forward to!Continue Reading →
A new Halo Mega Bloks Signature Series set comes but once a year, and that once a year has come at last! While the previous Signature Series Mega Bloks Halo sets have been never-before-done vehicles (such as the UNSC Infinity, UNSC Mammoth and Covenant Scarab), this time out MEGA Brands decided to recreate a specific scene from the beloved “Halo 3: ODST” video game instead. Hope you love Pelicans (and who doesn’t?), because the Halo Mega Bloks NMPD Pelican Air Base set has now landed exclusively at Toys R Us stores!Continue Reading →
2014 was a bad year to be a Halo collector. McFarlane put out their smallest number of Halo figures in a year yet, Kotobukiya hadn’t yet re-entered the fray, and Square-Enix only put out one new Halo Play Arts Kai figure. But thankfully, that figure ended up being absolutely outstanding. And while everyone couldn’t afford to bust out 100 bucks for him before, they may want to rethink that now: the Play Arts Kai Halo 2 Anniversary Master Chief is now on sale for 48% Off!Continue Reading →
For over a year now, we’ve been waiting for the revived Kotobukiya Halo ARTFX+ statues line to officially arrive. And while I saw in-development pieces at Toy Fair in February and already pre-ordered all of the new Halo statues online this summer, at New York Comic-Con 2015 last week, I finally got to see the finished products face-to-(sculpted) face!
And those of you who’ve been looking forward to these figures, rejoice–you will not be disappointed!Continue Reading →
As promised, MEGA Brands bright the entire lineup of Halo Heroes Series 2 figures with them to New York Comic-Con 2015 today! It looks like we may have to wait longer that we’d hoped to own them, but at least … Continue Reading →
Last week, I discussed the eight (ten if you count Gummi Bear Spartans) figures that make up the Halo Mega Bloks Delta Series that will be shipping to stores this winter.
But wait–there’s more! While the actual Series Delta is now confirmed, a leaked image of what collectors thought was Delta is likely to be Halo Mega Bloks Echo Series–and it’s headlined by an Active Camo Arbiter figure!Continue Reading →
Get ready, Halo fans! The second-biggest (or first-biggest, depending on who you ask) comic book convention of 2015 is nearly upon us: New York Comic Con 2015! As usual, I’ll be on-hand at the event, covering all of the new Halo toys on exhibit by MEGA Brands, McFarlane Toys, Kotobukiya, and more! And this year, that will include the all-new Mega Bloks Halo Heroes Series 1 & Series 2 figures!Continue Reading →
I’ve been in attendance at almost every single New York Comic Con since the inception of the event, and just like every year, I’m making the trek to NYC for the show next week.
But this year is a little different on the Halo front–because for the first time ever, NYCC will have a genuine exclusive Halo toy! It’s not from MEGA Brands or even McFarlane Toys–the Dark Horse NYCC 2015 Exclusive Silver UNSC Pelican Dropship is flying in!Continue Reading →
This is it, Halo fans! The month that we have all been waiting for for nearly three years now has finally arrived, and the Halo 5: Guardians video game will launch later on this month! As such, Halo merchandising looks to finally be heating up again, with retailers who haven’t taken on exclusives in a long time getting back on-board. And one of those retailers happens to be the largest online retailer in the world! Amazon is back in the game, and they’ve secured one of Halo’s sweetest plums (so to speak) for their very own: the Amazon exclusive McFarlane Halo 5 Unhelmeted Agent Locke is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Yesterday I broke the disappointing news that there is likely to only be one boxed Halo Mega Bloks 2016 set released this winter–the Covenant Watch Tower. But while that point of information is definitely a bummer, it doesn’t mean that there’s not unboxed Halo Mega Bloks 2016 sets on the way! And the most exciting of which for most fans is unquestionably the Halo Mega Bloks Delta Series figures!Continue Reading →
We’re just one week out from New York Comic Con 2015–the next major event that MEGA Brands will be attending! Ordinarily by this time of year we have a pretty good idea of what to expect from the winter wave of Halo Mega Bloks, and this year is no exception. But if you’re hoping to build whole Halo Mega Bloks 2016 sets this winter, be prepared for disappointment: this Halo 5 Mega Bloks Covenant Watch Tower appears to be the only boxed set…Continue Reading →
Considering that the Halo 5: Guardians video game hits stores in one month and the first wave of McFarlane Toys Halo 5 figures already arrived at retail this summer, many fans have been wondering when we’ll learn the makeup of the next wave. Well, wonder no longer: the McFarlane Halo 5 Series 2 figures are now up for order! But, well… those hoping for a lot of unique characters may be disappointed…Continue Reading →
As many of you have written in and noticed (and I’ve been a bit too busy to talk about here), some of the McFarlane Toys Halo 5: Guardians figures that were scheduled to be released in October have started to appear in some stores. Kelly and the Athlon Spartan have been especially difficult to find, but things just got a whole lot easier: the McFarlane Halo 5 figures are now available online with free shipping!Continue Reading →
It’s been literally years since McFarlane Toys released an entire series of new Halo figures containing more than three new figures, but the drought is at an end and the long-awaited Halo 5: Guardians figures have arrived! And what better character to begin the reviews with than the new protagonist of Halo 5–Agent Locke! The new McFarlane Spartan Locke figure is now available online and in some stores–but is he everything I hoped he would be? Well… not exactly…Continue Reading →
