96983 Mega Bloks Halo Battlescape II (Click Here) (Note: did anyone notice that the figures here are exclusive to Halofest? These are most likely not the ones to come with this set. Also the Ghost is in a slightly different colour that could be due to lighting, its a prototype, or it's a completely new colour for the Covenant. It's also the same colour as the Revenant. Yet, the Turret is seen in the Normal Purple colour variation. This is the Grass version coming Spring, we will get a re-release Desert one like in February, and an Arctic one later on)

Halo Battlescape Re-Release for 10th Anniversary Series and for Fall 2011

I was looking through for some gift idea's for something I'm working on when I passed by this new photo of the Halo Mega Bloks Battlescape set. For some reason the box had changed from the 2010 "Halo (The Authentic Collector's Series" black packaging to the newly updated 2011 "Halo (10th Anniversary Edition)" blue packaging. The Battlescape inside comes with everything that the February 2011 edition.

So I posted it on the Internet to share with the other fans of Halo Mega Bloks on Facebook to get their opinion, they seemed just as curious as I do about the up dative packaging. The next day Brad "Mega Bloks Halo on Facebook's admin" had this to say.....

"Yes, this is the new packaging for Fall 2011. A new "grass" version will be in stores Spring 2012."

 so we will see a re-released version of this sometime very soon. I also pointed out that the models on the side right next to the "Set 21" has the game version Mongoose and not the Mega Bloks Version, someone also pointed out the this seems to have 2 more pieces then the previouse model, but other then the box this is the same set as last time re-released. I can't wait to get this, I missed the last one cause I couldn't find it so mabye this one will be easier to find, let us know if you had spotted it  

Its set price on is $42.98

Halo Mega Bloks #96937 EVA’s Last Stand Review

#96937 EVA’s Last Stand 

After a squad gets killed off by a Covenant force, one Spartan escapes the fight after seeing his allies fall. He soon realises he’s being followed by two Hunters, some of the most dangerous Covenant warriors. The EVA Spartan knows he must make his heroic stand and finds a battle damaged Warthog. As the Covenant finally has the upper hand the EVA uses the turret on the Warthog to make his last stand. 

EVA’s Last Stand comes with an EVA Spartan with Rifle, 2 fully updated Hunters, and destroyed Warthog. The first Green EVA Spartan comes with new rounded off shoulders, a completely unique chest piece, and the EVA helmet itself. The texture of the Green is much brighter then the classic and common Spartan II figure, the body is fairly accurate with amazing details, and the head looks similar to the Flame Marine but is actually more different once you’ve actually compare the two. With 12 points of articulation alone in this figure and the black rifle that can be used for display, this figure is not bad at all. 

If you remember, the Hunters were sort of tricky to collect. They were only in retail in the #96833 Wolverine and #96852 Arctic Wolverine set, both in purple. For around $40 to get just one hunter from those two sets it wasn’t all to easy compared to other sets. Now, it’s much easier to purchase since in this set, it comes with two Hunters, easier price, and their painted and molded to look more like their full game version. With 10 points of articulation, lots of detail, nice shields and Armour, and a newly designed, complex gun for each hunter. 

Now the Battle Damaged Warthog. I like how the spread a bunch of random parts on the Landmass to simulate the torn Armour for the battle damage. What’s cool about this is if you collected the Rockethog Vs. Anti Aircraft Gun battle set and take the wheels off the Rockethog, take some of the torn off parts, and you can make a fully functioning Desert Camo Warthog for yourself. Not only that, you can take the Rockethog and place it on the landmass. Spread a few torn parts lying around, and you can make a Battle Damage Rockethog. 

The turret is supposed to look similar to the First Warthog Mega Bloks created with the Machine gun mount. Its completely unique and redesigned to look better to simulate its gaming appearance from Halo. It does have two handles and a little circular dish on the bottom to display your EVA Spartan battling it out with the Hunters and making his stand. 

Decide for yourself who will win this close battle with the new EVA’s Last Stand. Make your own scenes and play as the Hunters or EVA, or ask friends to play along. Or you can take the battle larger and display it with your Halo and or Mega Bloks collection. Average Price: $30, Set Number: #96937, Building: 1 being the easiest, 10 being hard, 6/10, Parts total: 169, Total Overall: 1 being the worst, 10 being the best, 8/10

Halo Mega Bloks: Official CGI Product Image Of Covenant Drop Pod Elite Zealot

Finally, an official product photo of one of the full Covenant Drop Pods sets featuring the Golden Elite Zealot with Needler, Rifle, and Grenade as shown in the picture, as well as the Covenant Drop Pod itself in purple (With details) and a 6x4 plate.

Personally, I loved the ODST ones and have successfully collected them all, now I can't wait to start collecting these. There should be 2-3 Elite Drop Pod coming to shelves soon with a Flood Pod in the first wave. Ultra Elite and Arctic Elite has been mentioned and some what shown up on the Internet, the Zealot with the other Drop Pods have been seen in the instructions sheets from the latest Halo Sets, but not full product view.

Expected retail price for $12.99 each, we will let you know when it releases in stores.

I have just spotted the #96967 Assault on High Grounds in my Wal-Mart, Have you found any Versus sets yet?

Today, I went to Wal-Mart to pick up a few thing, and during that time I went to the local Wal-Mart at Victoria Langford B.C. and I found something that had surprised me. Either today or yesterday they finally stocked up on the Halo Mega Bloks Versus High Ground Assault for around $60.They have also recently stocked up on the Red Versus Combat Unit and Blue Versus Combat Unit for around $13. I went there a few days ago and they didn't have any of the High Ground Assault's so this is brand new. Now we need your help, please tell us if you have located this set or any other Versus set in your local retail store, tell us how much it was, if you bought it, and/or what you think of it or any Versus set.
