At New York Toy Fair 2015 MEGA Bloks, Kotobukiya, McFarlane Toys, and BOOMco unveiled some of their new toys coming this fall 2015. Many of these are inspired by Halo 5 and according to James Monosmith, Marketing Manager for Halo Consumer Products at 343 Industries, “…some of the MEGA Bloks toys feature sneak peeks into the plot of Halo 5: Guardians.”
New line of Halo 5: Guardians Mega Bloks sets revealed at New York Toy Fair 2015. The line features:
Promethean Phaeton Gunship
UNSC Gauss Warthog, with the black and yellow look from Halo: CE rocket hog for the PC.
UNSC Scorpion Tank
According to James Monosmith, Marketing Manager for Halo Consumer Products at 343 Industries “…some of the Mega Bloks toys feature sneak peeks into the plot of Halo 5: Guardians.”
Here are the other toys shown off, featuring BOOMco nerf Halo weapons, McFarlane Halo 5: Guardians 10 inch Master Chief and Agent Locke figures, and more!
Earlier today HaloWaypoint began tweeting out photos of some toys at this year’s Toy Fair in New York. Among the photos, 2 of them were of prototypes from the popular McFarlane Toys. The first being a prototype Master Chief figure modeled after the Halo on Xbox One trailer that we’re all very familiar with.
Complete with a cloak and a promethean boltshot. In regards to this photo, there isn’t much to say. The real story lies within the second photo; A photo of a Halo 2 Master Chief prototype. So here we are again, it feels like 343 is teasing us.
I would just like to point out that this isn’t some old left over toy from 2004. McFarlane toys didn’t start making Halo toys till after Halo 3’s launch. Prior to this, Joyride was making Halo toys (most notably the one used for the famous Arby ‘n’ the Chief Machinima series). This figurine begs the question. Why make one for a game that’s over 10 years old?
