Sounds like MEGABLOCKS picked up the license.

Quote:
There's been a growing Halo fanbase who've used LEGO to make their favorite HALO vehicles. Google Halo LEGO and you'll get hundreds of fan-made results.

However, this autumn, the dream of Halo construction toys comes one step closer with MEGA Brands and their Halo Wars license

I saw a couple of early pieces tucked away in MEGA's showroom today. It's still no pics at this stage, but I got to find out a little more about the line.

If you don't know MEGA's products, a quick search should give you their Dragons
or Spider-Man 3 lines.

The Halo mini figures are in much the same style, and I got to see Master Chief, EVA armor, Brutes and Grunts

However, the main focus of the line will be the vehicles and MEGA has a number planned from drop ships, thru Warthogs to Banshees

Their license is for Halo Wars which means you'll get a lot of the cool vehicles. One set I was shown with the UNSC Spartan tank will retail for just 15. Pretty good value I thought (and this coming from someone who feels overthign is overpriced these days!)

The line feels like it's still in the very early stages, and I got the impression it was a hard sell to some retailers, but it was one of the few things I saw at the UK ToyFair that got me buzzing. The line isn't out until November, so I expect we'll get to hear more about it at ToyFair and San Diego Comic Con


Bleh.

It's too bad...not like Lego would've sought after the license anyway.

Haha, more proof that HALO sucks! Wink

I kid, really, even though it's MB I'm still interested in what they've got planned, especially minifig wise.

Uh, no. While I've loved playing Halo with the guys since Combat Evolved, I am not interested in Mega product at all, regardless of what license they might pull out of their posterior. If LEGO dropped the SW license today and Mega picked it up, that wouldn't be enough to sway me.

This is not unexpected. Obviously many people have built HALO MOCs and given that LEGO would never get the license, it seems logical for MegaBlocks to want it.

Personally, I hate MegaBlocks and HALO, so I could care less.

I brought up the topic, hoping someone could elaborate, including its level of legitimacy. I don't see it as hard to believe at this point, but can you prove it's fake?

I love my Halo but even I won't be swayed except if there are some useful guns in some very very cheap sets.

I'd rather they left it be to be honest.

They can have each other. And those SM3 sets are nothing to be proud of. Yikk. Mad

It is overhyped, I can agree with that. Then there's the whole thing with people claiming it to be the best game ever, it's not. It's a fun game but not the best game that has ever existed.

I like it for the story plot. I enjoyed the first Halo the most because of its campaign.
