Hailed as the “killer app” for the original Microsoft Xbox upon its 2001 release, the first-person shooter game “Halo: Combat Evolved” would become the first entry in a videogame series that would span nearly two decades, branching out into other gameplay genres and exploding into a larger multimedia franchise including books, comics, live-action web-series, anime and, quite naturally, toy lines. Microsoft has long relied on Mega Bloks (now Mega Brands, a Mattel subsidiary) to bring some of the sweetest “Halo” toys ever for collectors. While Mega has had its Bloks line specialize in replicating “Halo” vehicles, they have also branched out into producing action mini-figures via Mega Construx. This is reflected in their new Mega Construx Halo Heroes Series 10 characters.
The Mega Construx “Halo Heroes” Series 10 mini-figures bring together a choice selection of characters across the sci-fi FPS franchise. UNSC Master Chief PO John-117, his fellow Spartan super-soldiers, his trusty AI companion Cortana and a variety of hostile extraterrestrial threats from the Covenant and Forerunners are included in this tenth series of figures on the Mega Construx line.
The new “halo heroes” figures
Appropriate for being Series 10 of “Halo Heroes,” this batch of Mega Construx figures features 10 individual characters. They each come with their own handheld equipment/accessories and standing base with a gold-colored nameplate. The figures included in this batch are:
While you can get them individually, Mega Construx is also offering “Halo Heroes” Series 10 mini-figures in a collector’s case. This features multiple copies of the characters in the set to a total 21 figures.
These new easy-to-assemble figures have been available since early this month, and are selling like hotcakes online. So we at The Brick Show are also offering these Series 10 Mega Construx Halo Heroes on our online store.
