SDCC 2015 – Mega Bloks

Friday, July 10th, 2015

Mega Bloks line is also taking full advantage of some licensing their competitors wouldn’t ever consider adding to their fold.

  
The Call of Duty line is progressing with some new building sets, including a set themed after the popular Zombies mode from the Treyarch games.

  
The Halo line is also seeing a few new additions, such as this unnamed prototype set.

  
Finally, the most exciting addition to the Mega Bloks line displayed at the show is the addition of T-800 head and arm model kits.  

  

SDCC 2015 – BOOMco Licensed Halo Blasters

I don’t have a lot of experience with the BOOMco line, but licensing the Halo property to make a line of dart launchers is a strong move on Mattel’s part.

The line consists of several blasters modeled after iconic Halo weapons from both the Human and Covenant forces, designed to fire foam-tipped darts. A consistent claim throughout the packaging of the blasters is their capability to fire up to 70 feet.

This particular set, the USNC Covenant Battle Pack, is actually available for sale at the convention. I did manage to pick up a set, but I’ll have to wait until I get back to the headquarters before I do a hands-on review.
