Just yesterday (7-1-2020) Mega finally released images and information with regards to their Summer Halo lineup. (I’d have posted it yesterday, but I’m during a kidney stone that has had me laid up for 3 days straight. In fact, I’m posting this in between when I normally take pain meds, so I can get this out to you all in a timely fashion. Pain be damned!!
Okay, let’s get started.
Pics are all from Mega’s official website.
This Warthog set comes with 4 figures. Chief, a Marine and 2 Jackals “Freebooters”. Of note with the warthog is the new suspension. Just look at the under front of the warthog to see what I mean.
The Jackals look to be to similar to the Bungie era Jackals. More bird like and less dinosaur like of the latter 343 era. I’m loving the detail on the Marine.
There is an alternate build to this set as you can see below. Now you can make the Warthog a boat as well as have pieces left over for a jet pack for Chief. No word if these are in-game assets or just Mega having liberties with their build. Either way, it’s pretty cool.
Here is the official text blurb from Mega regarding the Warthog Rally set:
• Halo Infinite inspired UNSC Warthog vehicle building set with rolling wheels, cockpit, pivoting turret and working wheelbase suspension
• 2-in-1 building toy: Choose to build the Warthog or a watercraft and jetpack
• 4 highly collectible micro action figures, Master Chief, UNSC Marine and 2 Jackal Freebooters, with authentic detail, 12 points of articulation, display stands and interchangeable weapon accessories
• Ideal for ages 8 and up, this building set features detailed authenticity to strengthen creative thinking skills
• 315 bricks and pieces combine with all Mega Construx building sets and are compatible with other name brands
Feel the terrain like never before with this upgraded Warthog. Modeled after its appearance in Halo Infinite, the Warthog features a new buildable suspension that reacts to the ground underneath it. Or leave land behind by choosing to build a watercraft and jetpack. This construction set also includes 4 micro action figures that can be placed inside your vehicle of choice. Rally the troops, solider – it’s time to prepare for battle.
Ideal for Probuilders, ages 8 and up
What’s in the box?
4 micro action figures
Set number: GNB25
With this set having 315 pieces, I’m going to guess the retail to be around $30 U.S.
