Halo Mega Bloks Summer 2016 Cyclops Sets Up for Order!

Mattel may not be the favorite toy company of every Halo fan out there, but there’s absolutely no denying that they’ve made collecting Halo toys more interesting right now than it has been in years! And not only have the Halo Mega Bloks Summer 2016 sets just been restocked online, but the previously-released sets have company in the form of a new pair of sets: the Halo Wars 2 Cyclops sets are now available for order!

When the two new versions of the UNSC Cyclops that were revealed during the winter didn’t turn up for sale early with the rest of the known 2016 Summer Halo Mega Bloks sets, some collectors feared that the new Cyclopses had been cancelled or delayed until the fall.

But nope–it turns out that these mechs just wanted to make a fashionably late appearance, as they’ve now arrived at some online retailers and are ready to be deployed into collectors’ homes!

First up, we’ve got the more traditional-looking, green version of the mech: the Strike Cyclops Mega Bloks set (with generic UNSC Marine figure). 

Strike Cyclops Halo Wars 2 Mega Bloks SetHere’s the official description and features for this set…

UNSC Strike Cyclops Mega Bloks Set:

  • Includes opening canopy and cockpit
  • Removable Cannon Cyclops arm attachment for customization
  • One highly detailed, super-pose able UNSC Marine micro action figure with detachable armor and detailed Shotgun accessory
  • Collect and combine with other Halo Mega Bloks sets to build your own authentic Halo universe!

Halo Mega Bloks Incinerator Cyclops SetThe Halo Wars 2 Mega Bloks Strike Cyclops and Incinerator Cyclops are now up for order, and are in-stock and ready to be shipped out as of writing. I went ahead and ordered both sets to build and review in the near-future, but I’m about to have a huge backlog of Halo toys needing reviews, so it may take me a while to get to these.

What do you think of this year’s revamped versions of the UNSC Cyclops, Halo collectors? Is your collection already saturated full of these mechs, or are you excited to add new iterations to your shelves this summer?

  1. I live in Australia, and we still have dozens of the old cyclopes clogging up store shelves. I get a feeling that these ones will be a lot more popular, though.

    • Really? Which versions? The much older ones ala Jungle/Desert/Arctic? Or the newer ones?

  2. This contains our second halo wars 2 marine. The first one was in delta series blind pack. Later in the summer they will release more halo wars2 sets

  3. “Originally assigned to non-combat tasks, this buildable mech walker has been upgraded for battle with the addition of a powerful arm-mounted Flame Cannon. ” yet it was still called the incinerator variant, also love the striker it will fit well with my olive drab green “Regulation” vehicles also every time I think of growing apart from these sets a new wave interests me. :)
