Halo Monopoly

Halo Monopoly

EB Games (of Australia) has a listing for a Halo edition of Monopoly. It’s up for pre-order now and will sell for $68 Aussie dollars. This will release in Nov this year. It’s also listed as being exclusive to EB Games. (The image above is likely not the final box version.)

We in the states know that EB Games and Gamestop are one in the same now. I did a little looking around and couldn’t find a listing for this anywhere else but in Australia.

I do hope this comes to the rest of the world. I’d like to play this. I wonder what would be used for houses though, or if they will still be the same as the standard game??

Would you buy this if it came to a store near you?

Let me know, reply below.

My wife surprised me with a nice bit of Halo Mega Bloks on Friday. At first it was the new Ghost and Gungoose set. But then, she further surprised me with the Phaeton and…. the UNSC Vulture!!!

megabloks-unsc-vulture-gunship-cng71-11636

I spent the whole weekend building. This explains some of why I haven’t posted join the blog for a little bit.

Unfortunately, the Vulture set had a few missing pieces and two malformed pieces rather critical to the build. I’ve already called Mega for replacement parts.

In the meantime, I’ll be editing the photos I took of the first three and will be posting those reviews within a day or two.

I’ll have the Vulture’s review up once I get the replacement parts in form Mega. Though, I’ll give you a tease of it, in the Phaeton review, just so you know I do indeed have the set…

So please STAY TUNED!
