Halo Mega Bloks 2016 Halo Heroes Series 1 Figures Released!

Halo Heroes Series 1 Figures Case Display

Even though the January 2016 wave of new Halo Mega Bloks sets has the smallest number of new vehicles ever included in a wave–zero–that doesn’t mean that we’re not getting some good stuff this winter! And the most-anticipated of the new Halo toys this season are something all-new: a series of single-packed, carded named (and some multiplayer) characters.

And finally, they have arrived: Halo Heroes Series 1 has now been released!

Mega Bloks Halo Heroes Spartan Vale Figure Review

Halo Mega Bloks Halo Heroes Spartan Vale Figure Review

Given that Spartan Vale is one of eight main characters in the runaway hit Halo 5: Guardians video game, you would think that Spartan Vale figures would be hitting from tons of companies. That’s not the case. In fact, not one bit of Olympia Vale merch was released by any company last year.

But to kick off 2016, Halo Mega Bloks is bringing us the first Vale toy ever with the Halo Heroes Spartan Vale figure! Vale’s selling for more than triple her MSRP online–is she worth it?

Halo 5 Play Arts Kai Master Chief & Locke Up for Order!

Close-Up of Play Arts Kai Spartan Locke Figure

While pretty much every Halo licensee out there managed to get at least one major new collectible out last fall to coincide with the release of the Halo 5: Guardians video game, Square-Enix lagged behind and just plain missed the boat. But this spring, SE’s products will finally hit: the Halo 5 Play Arts Kai Master Chief and Spartan Locke are now up for order! But while they’re plenty nice looking, they’re also a price not many will want to pay…

Kotobukiya Halo Armors ARTFX+ Statue Sets 50% Off!

Kotobukiya Master Chief Mark V Armor Statue

I first got to see the Kotobukiya Halo armor sets–the blue Mark VI armor and Master Chief Mark V armors–at the New York Toy Fair 2015 last Valentine’s Day.

I’ve been wondering why we never saw any more armor sets announced after that, but I think the reason may be becoming clear: the Halo Kotobukiya armor sets are now 50% off and free shipping just two months after being released!

McFarlane Halo 5 Series 2 Figures Hi-Res Photos! Buck!

Halo 5 Guardians McFarlane Buck Figure Revealed

For reasons that I cannot begin to understand (because McFarlane Toys works in unfathomable ways), McFarlane has been eerily silent about figure Halo 5: Guardians figures since the game was released two months ago. And while McFarlane Toys still hasn’t announced anything new, at least they’re finally acknowledging figures that went up for order months ago: the Halo 5 Series 2 figures (including Buck!) have now officially been revealed with hi-res images!

CODE NUMBER LIST: Halo Mega Bloks Delta Series Figures!

Halo Mega Bloks Delta Series Code Number List

I could have swore that I was just talking about the Halo Mega Bloks Charlie Series blind bags a couple weeks ago, but it turns out that it was over six months ago that I posted the Charlie Series Code Number List. Time flies, huh? Anyway, the fact that it’s been a full half year since the last Halo Mega Bloks figures series was released can mean only one thing: it’s time for a new wave of blind bags: the Halo Mega Bloks Delta Series code number list is as follows…

TriForce Spartan Kelly 087 Replica Helmet

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!

McFarlane Halo 5 Spartan Tanaka Figure Review & Photos

McFarlane Halo 5 Spartan Tanaka Review

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!

McFarlane Toys Halo 5: Guardians Fred Figure Review!

Halo 5 Guardians Spartan Fred Figure

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?

Gamestop Exclusive Halo Grey Pelican Replica Up for Order!

Gamestop Exclusive Halo Pelican Grey Vehicle Replica

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!

Halo 5 Mega Bloks Promethean Weapons Customizer Pack!

Halo Mega Bloks Promethean Weapons Customizer Pack Packaged

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!

Halo 5 Limited Edition Soundtrack Up for Order!

Halo 5 Guardians Original Soundtrack Cover

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!

NYCC 2015: Halo 5 Vehicle Replicas! Prowler! Banshee!

NYCC 2015 Dark Horse Halo Prowler Ship Replica

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!

Halo Mega Bloks NMPD Pelican Air Base Set Released!

Toys R Us Exclusive Mega Bloks Halo NMPD Pelican Air Base Set

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!

Play Arts Kai Halo 2 Master Chief On Sale! 48% Off!

Halo 2 Play Arts Kai Master Chief Figure

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!

NYCC 2015: Kotobukiya Halo ARTFX+ Spartans Statues!

Halo Athlon Spartan Kotobukiya Statue

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!

Halo Mega Bloks Echo Series Figures Revealed! Arbiter!

Halo Mega Bloks Echo Series Figures

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!

Mega Bloks Halo Heroes Wave 1 Preview Image

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!

New York Comic Con 2015 Exclusive Halo Silver UNSC Pelican!

Dark Horse New York Comic Con Halo Silver Pelican Exclusive

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!
