Mega Bloks is widely known for it’s expertly sculpted and very well articulated micro action figures. This year, we are getting PLENTY. They come in Multi-packs, Weapons Packs as well as the traditional Blind packs. There’s a lot of good figs coming from Mega Bloks this year, so let’s get to the pics!

Let’s start with the multi-packs. Before I go further, let me say that I do know the names of these sets, but was asked not to reveal them. People on other sites have posted what they think they are. I won’t confirm any of those guesses. Besides, names of sets could change between now and when the sets actually release near fall this year.
Multi-packs. These sets sell on average for $15.
Okay, here we go. This ‘Arctic’ squad is virtually the same as Fireteam Sierra. The only difference is the color of the parts. For those that want to build up a cold weather gear army, this set is certainly for you. I am slightly perplexed by the tan weapons crate though.
In this set you get a standard marine, an officer marine and two ‘space’ marines. That’s the title for that type of helmeted marine, though of course these won’t be serving the UNSC in space with those uniforms.
Next is a Desert Squad of Spartans. Similar again to Fireteam Eagle, with exception of color, the light speckling of the armor gives these Spartans a good battle worn look.
In this set you get the following Spartan armors: Enforcer, Soldier, Orbital and I believe the last one is an Aviator Spartan.
The Jungle Squad is SURE to be a great seller. Not only are the Spartan the ever popular green color armor, but we are finally getting a Wolf-Spider turret. Fans have been asking for that for awhile now. I foresee multiple purchase by many Mega Bloks fans out there!
In this set you get the following Spartans: Warrior, Recruit, Enforcer, and Soldier.
Next is a Promethean squad. This one is a bit surprising as it includes a Promethean Knight. I asked the rep if in the next Promethean set would they please include the standard knight. Those were the most plentiful in Halo 4 and I (and some of you I’m sure) would like to have a couple more of those, without having to track down the Cauldron Clash set.
You get a Watcher, Crawler, Alpha Crawler, Lancer Knight, and hmm, what is that Forerunner construct?
BTW, that isn’t orange you see, it’s red. So these are slight variants. Still, I’ll take ’em!
Now let’s move on to the weapons packs. If prices hold steady, these should run between $6-8 depending on where you buy them from.
Once again another blue Storm Elite. This is freakin’ AWESOME! I’ll be able to army build those guys up pretty quick, just by getting one of each set. Nice to see the Plasma Repeater. That’s a rarely used weapon mold for Mega Bloks.
Being able to get another Halo 4 styled Jackal is something we fans have been asking for. And, we’re getting it in this set. I do like that µeta is including two different colored shields.
Here is a Covenant customizer set. IIRC, these both will be in the same set, but don’t quote me on that. Prices for customizer sets are between $8-10.
As if you didn’t need any more proof that we are getting removable armor for Elites, these two should cement that for you. I like the new Covenant styled armor crates. Gotta get me a few of those. They’ll look great in a diorama as filler and background pieces.
This next one I’m really excited for as I love this paint color for the Covenant. I mentioned to the rep that I’d like to see this in white and orange. Why? Well, while the armor is slightly different, Elite Rangers in Halo Reach were white…with exception to that sneaky Orange one that you could find if you progressed through missions quick enough.
And finally, here is Series Charlie. This eerie comes with 8 figures, one of which has a variant of itself, and two chase figures.
Below is a Green Gungnir (Reach style), Crimson Storm Elite, Yellow (more like mustard) Storm Grunt
Next are a Dark Blue Orbital Spartan (nice visor color!), Arctic Marine Pilot (happy to get extras of this one!) and an Orange Centurion Spartan (Halo 5 armor).
Here we have below a Cyan Soldier Spartan and a pair of Jackals. Those Jackals follow along with the theme of the partial Active Camo Brutes from a previous series.
And finally the two chase figures. A green translucent HAZOP Spartan and a smoke translucent ‘Emile’. This is the first time we’ll get a named figure in the blind packs as a transparent figure. (I’m not including the Spartan Mark V as that could be any number of Spartans and not specifically Master Chief.)This will be a relatively easy series for me as only one is an army builder for me, that being the Arctic Pilot.
No word on which are the rates and ultra. I’m going to guess that the Orange Centurion will be the Ultra. I hope like heck it’s NOT the Arctic Pilot…
