Each Halo Heroes Series before this one had 6 figures in the series. For Heroes series 10 however, there are 10 figures. All of them NAMED characters!!!

I was fortunate enough when I found these to have got them all at once. With that, I was allowed to also take the box tray they came it. So I present that here for you to see.

Here are all 10 carded figures.
Here is one of the card backs. (They change slightly only to remove the carded figure’s pic with another one.) In the case below, this was the Didact’s card.

Each carded figure comes a figure stand the same as below. The exception is the corresponding character name on each stand blok.

There is an insert sheet with each figure. It’s the same for all, no specific printing for certain characters.

Now let’s take a look at the figures!

Yapyap the Destroyer

Here he is in all his Grunty Greatness! The all seeing, the all powerful (yeah right), Yapyap the Destroyer!

Yapyap hails from Halo Wars 2 as a DLC Leader. So fun to play!!!

He comes with a removable mask, crown and a Needler.

The head of Yapyap is so tiny, yet Mega put forth the effort to pack it chock full of detail.

There is a hole on top of the head for the crown to be inserted into, to hold it into place.

As well, Mega added on the torso pictographs that Yapyap has. Fantastic! My only complaint is the gap the torso armor has with the new armor Mega has made for the new iteration of Grunts.

Yapyap with stand, ready to be cruel and rule!

Master Chief

Ya boy Master Chief is in the house! Made as his Halo CE self, it’s always great to have Chief around!

This version comes with a shotgun.

Thought he’d shoot his way out…


If I recall correctly, this is now the sixth version of the Arbiter we have. Thel version that is. The difference with this one that sets it apart from the others is the purple undersuit. The stone color of the armor looks great. Perhaps a blackwash to this figure would really help to bring out the detail in the armor.

The Arbiter comes with a energy sword.

Stabby McStabface is ready to stab! LOL

Noble 6

Noble Six has never looked better, IMO. Love that grey armor color.

He comes with a highly detailed Assault Rifle.

Kicking Covenant names and taking ass! er wait… LOL

Prophet of Mercy

Mercy doesn’t comes with a weapon. Instead he comes with a crown and a Flood infection form with tentacles.

Mercy being shown NO MERCY from the infection form!!! (He got what he deserved!)

the Rookie

Man, this was another figure done SO RIGHT! The Rookie looks fantastic here. Great detail, especially with the UNSC logo and blue visor.

Rook comes with an SMG, silencer and backpack. (Backpacks are SO rare these days with Mega figures that I’m VERY happy to have one here.)

Tell me this doesn’t look badass?!

Spartan Kat

Man, I’m happy that we have all of Noble team. I’m ESPECIALLY  happy that Mega gave Kat an unhelmeted head with the figure.

Kat comes with a magnum.

Ready to take on the Covie and take one for the team. OUCH!


This Cortana is the CE version, hence the purplish color.

She comes with an unassembled enraged Guilty Spark, data pad, Index and plastic rod for Spark to sit on. 

Here is a close up of the data pad and index. The only thing I wish Mega would have done here was make an actual index piece instead of printing it on the clear piece.

Guilty Spark assembled.

Cortana looks great! I do wish her face wasn’t so purply, but otherwise, well done, Mega!


Tartarus has only been made ONCE prior. This was in the Anniversary Battleground set back in 2014. Then he had the long nose per the original Bungie style. This version sees him with the updated flat bat-like nose.

He comes with a standard Gravity Hammer. This is one of a rare disappointment with this series. For this figure, I really would have appreciated a proper Fist of Rukt hammer.

Tartarus smash!

Here’s the original Tartarus figure for comparison. I’d say the one above is a definite improvement. wouldn’t you?

the Didact

I was honestly SHOCKED that Mega would release this oversized figure one a single card. If you find him, BUY HIM! He’s really tough to find now.  The only other time we’ve gotten the Didact was in the Broadsword set. That set was also a 2014 debut. Since that set was $70 retail, it wasn’t bought up as quickly, but never seemed to go on sale. Then it just seemed to disappear. So a lot of people missed out on him.

The Didact comes with a Boltshot.

Below is this Didact and below that the original for comparison.

Note the color variation here. The OG Didact’s armor is more shiny silver, while the newer one is blue steel. There is also a lot more orange highlights that stand out on the OG version.

The Didact doesn’t need a Boltshot, he’ll just use the Force! LOL

And finally a group shot. Here you can also get a good idea of the size of the Didact in comparison to the other figures.

Summary: There is next to no build time with these figures as it’s just the stand to put together for the most part. Series 10 has great selection of characters from Halo lore. That they are all named characters is AWESOME!!!

Overall Rating: I give Series 10 a 9 out for 10 medals as a whole.

Why did I give series 10 a 9 out of 10?
I gave a rating for each figure, then roughly averaged the final tally. Below are my ratings per figure.

Yapyap the Destroyer: If this were just an average Grunt, he’d get a lower rating. But since it’s Yapyap and he comes with a crown and detailed markings on the torso armor, I give this a 9.5 out of 10 medals. The only thing holding it back from a 10 is that slight gap in the torso armor. Try as I might, I just could not get it to fully close.

Master Chief: This is a pretty standard Mark IV Spartan. However, it’s in UNSC metallic Green, which denotes Master Chief.  As said previously, I’m always happy to have another Chief in the collection. 9 out of 9 medals

Arbiter: This version of the Arbiter is good. I like the stone color of the armor and the purpler undersuit. Only a blackwash would have made the figure better as you may miss out on some of the exquisite detail in the armor mold. 9 of 9 medals

Noble 6: This version of Noble Six is darn near PERFECTION! Better than the all black version in the Gungoose set and definitely better than the unnamed Brown version in the Countdown set. 10 of 10 medals!

Prophet of Mercy: Ugh…Mercy is my big disappointment of this series. Not just this toy line, but I’ve never been a fan of robed figures where the bottom half of the figure is a solid piece and not legs with a plastic or cloth robe around them. I understand why it’s done. I just do not like it. For this figure, I wish Mega would have added his hover chair. If not that, then at least give him some kind of weapon beyond the Flood infection accessory. I give this a painful 7 of 10 medals

the Rookie: Another completely well done figure! The Rookie is another that is near perfection! We have had a named Rookie in the Wombat Drone set. While similar, I just really prefer this 10 anniversary one to it. 10 of 10 medals! We also got an unnamed Rookie in the ODST Battle Unit set from 2013. That one was with the old articulation, however.

Spartan Kat: The paint application to Kat is very good. As previously stated, I’m very happy that Mega included both a helmeted and unhelmeted head with the figure. Always happy to have a member of Noble team! I only wish her robotic arm had the standard articulation. 9 of 10 medals

Cortana: The figure itself is now the standard Cortana figure. It’s the printing on it that makes it different from the others. And that’s where the figure shines. The additional of 343 Guilty Spark, a data pad and the index (albeit printed) round out the figure nicely. Again, I do wish the index were an actual piece than just printed.  9.5 of 10 medals

Tartarus: This version is a definite improvement. The articulation alone does that. Then when you add a furry torso, removable armor and a head who’s hair doesn’t look like fins (like the old one did), you’ve got a completely new figure and a VERY good one to boot! I do wish he’d have come with the Fist of Rukt. This was the PERFECT opportunity to do so. Sigh. 9 of 9 Medals

the Didact: The paint application differs slightly from the original one. It’s not bad, just darker. While I prefer the OG Didact, I have to say for just $5 original retail price for THIS Didact, it’s the BEST value EVER for a Mega Construx Halo figure. SO worth it! 10 of 10 medals!

Total 92 of 100 medals. For an average of 9.2 of 10 Medals for the complete series.

Let me break down my opinion of the value of this set. (In US dollars)
• Each figure with one of the weapons each $4 each. This mainly due to paint deco.
• The stand I put at 50 cents.
TOTAL: $4.50 (before tax and in U.S. dollars)

The price of $5 (average retail U.S. price) is just slightly over that. Since each figure comes on it’s own specific printed card with corresponding character artwork, I can waive the 50 cents difference in light of that. Not to mention, they are all named characters! No filler!!! In the case of the Didact, it’s an EXCELLENT value!!!

Do I recommend it?  YES! Halo Heroes is one of the very few things I collect both a carded and another to open. These IMO, are highly collectible, especially if kept in the package. That this specific series is all NAMED characters makes it even MORE worth it to collect. (In my opinion of course.)
