Attention Halo fans! The holidays are nearly upon us and it’s time to start shopping for friends, family, and maybe yourself while you’re at it. Well, you’re in luck, as we have a ton of brand-new Halo-themed products and toys in-store now, all of which will fill you with the holiday spirit as you step into the boots of your favorite Spartan. Let’s take a tour through some of the amazing products that are out there, and available…right now!
We’ve teamed up with our friends at Mega for some absolutely incredible new sets this year. You can now put the Master Chief right on your shelf with the new helmet set, complete with a buildable AI chip that slots right in. The 414-piece set may not be quite big enough to wear yourself, but you can look over and see the Master Chief’s gold visor watching over you anytime.
Mega has also created two of their best sets to date with the replica Energy Sword that’s going to look extra-intimidating on your mantle, as well as a massive new Pelican dropship. The Pelican features poseable wings, a cockpit hatch, working landing gear and comes with three micro-figures of the Master Chief, the Pilot and a Banished Hunter. At over 2000 pieces this set is massive, and the perfect gift for the builder in your life.
It’s some strong words, but my personal favorite set is the Forerunner Ring Installation. Now you can finally have a piece of a Halo ring right in your home, complete with mini trees, rivers, and mountains. But what makes this set so perfect is that each ring segment can snap together, and with five sets you can build a full-blown Halo Ring. You still can’t fire it without an Index though, so all sentient life in the galaxy should be safe… I think.
Wicked Cool Toys
If you or someone you love is a collector, or just really likes to play with toys, then we’ve got a great lineup of action figures for you to check out. Scaling from four inches all the way up to a full foot tall, there’s sure to be something perfect for you to recreate the massive battles Halo is known for. Available figures include Kat-B320, a Brute Chieftan with gravity hammer, a Banished Ghost, Elite Warlord, a Warthog and, of course, the Master Chief himself. I’m not saying I spend most of my afternoons recreating iconic moments from the game with action figures, but I’m not saying I’m not doing that either.
Whether you’re a kid or just a kid at heart, there are few things more fun than blasting your best friend with a Nerf dart. Now you can give your battles a little Halo flavor with then new MA40 and Mangler, both inspired by the weapons in Halo Infinite. The MA40 comes with a 10-dart clip and motorized blaster, while the Mangler boasts a 6-dart drum. Both toys also come with exclusive digital codes which will allow you to get a special in-game add on to use when Halo Infinite launches in 2021. The MA40 is available now, and the Mangler will be released on January 1.
Let’s not pretend we don’t need more Funko Pops in our lives, because of course we do! We’re scratching that itch with some new items featuring both the Master Chief and the Spartan MK VII, with some unique and exclusive variants. In addition to the three standard Funko Pops you can find we’re also offering a Master Chief Hydro Deco variant exclusively at Best Buy, a Master Chief Active Camo variant exclusively at Target, and a Spartan MK VII with shock rifle variant exclusively at GameStop. But why choose when you can just collect all six instead?
Those who know me know I have one passion…I love statues. More specifically, I love this statue of the Master Chief on Zeta Halo – inspired by the beautiful key art for Halo Infinite. This 10.5-inch statue is rich with gorgeous details and is a must-have for any collector. Just look at the pose! The burns and scuffs on the armor! The quiet heroism! This work of art is a Best Buy exclusive in the U.S. (visit Halo Waypoint for international availability) and is available now!
2020 has been a year (to say the least), so hopefully you’re able to find some joy and fun with these great Halo products from our amazing partners. I hope everyone has a great holiday season and we’ll see you in 2021 with even more cool Halo gear!
