Mega Bloks Halo Sets Revealed at RTX 2014

Hierarch’s Shadow Convoy 97521

At RTX 2014 this past weekend, Mega Bloks has unveiled the latest Halo Mega Bloks sets that will be released later this year. The first set is an Anniversary Collection Hierarch’s Shadow Convoy 97521 which includes a Mega Bloks Halo Sergeant Johnson figure. The set has 485 pieces and includes 8 figures, many of which Halo fans have been waiting for.

The Covenant Shadow is easily one of the most recognizable vehicles from the Halo franchise and this is the first time that it has been in a Mega Bloks set. The figures included in the set are, as mentioned before, Sergeant Johnson, Elite Honor Guard, two Marines, Arbiter, two Jackals, and the Prophet of Truth.

The Mega Bloks Hierarch’s Shadow Convoy 97521 will be available in August and is exclusive to Toys R Us stores.

Mega Bloks Halo 2 Anniversary Collection Battleground

The second set that was revealed at RTX 2014 was the Mega Bloks Halo 2 Anniversary Collection Battleground set. The set includes two UNSC Marines and two Brute figures with red fins as well as Tartarus. If you’ve played Halo 2, Tartarus is the tertiary antagonist and final boss in the game so it’s cool that we now see him as a Mega Bloks figure.

Spartan Tribute Pack

The final Mega Bloks Halo set that was revealed at RTX 2014 was the very awesome Spartan Tribute Pack. This set comes with a whopping 20 Spartan Mark IV figures in various colors. The colors that the Spartan Mark IV come in include purple, red, blue, white, steel, crimson, zombie, pink, copper, lime, tan, orange, yellow, cyan, smoke, sage, gold, silver, cobalt, and translucent blue.

If you looked closely, all the Spartans are carrying different weapons that have been in the game. Here is a list of the weapons that are included with the Spartan Tribute Pack in no particular order: SMG, Silenced SMG, Rocket Launcher, Covenant Carbine, Battle Rifle, Assault Rifle, Plasma Pistol, Sniper Rifle, Magnum, Shotgun, DMR, Flamethrower, Frag Grenades, Grenade Launcher, Spartan Laser, Smokey Translucent Grey Needler, Translucent Green Energy Sword, and Translucent Blue Brute Spiker.

The Spartan Tribute Pack is also a Toys R Us exclusive and you can also expect this set later this year.
