First Look: Halo Wars Mega Bloks Pics

Post by En!gma » Sat Feb 07, 2009 11:36 am

Through the magicks of halo.bungie.org I have uncovered an article showing some pictures of the new toy line that's been discussed in detail this past week.

It's been brought to my attention that the site the pictures were hosted on may be harmful to some computers, so I screencaped the pictures.

Personally I'm unimpressed by most of it, however there are some high points. As expected I'm not a fan of any f the vehicles or gun platforms, however I'm lovin' that grunt, hopefully it's hip isn't always jutting to the side. The elite is alright as are the weapons, but I don't like the spartan at all, given that we will be able to use Brick Forge's armor instead of their lackluster figures. Will's Brickarms weapons also should be used in place when applicable, a lot of them look a bit off, for example the shotgun's stock looks a bit long. Not to mention as usual most of them are too big. Comments?

Alright, whatever it is, I've already got it, I'll screencap some pictures and direct link them, wouldn't want anyone to ruin their computers.

I am awaiting the horror.
Glory be to the Bomb, and to the Holy Fallout. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be. World without end. May the Blessings of the Bomb Almighty, and the Fellowship of the Holy Fallout, descend upon us all. This day and forever more. Amen!

They look pretty good, but we all know they aren't. They suck. Just because they're MB. if they were LEGO®, they'd be instantly great.

AHHHHHHH!!!! They're so... chunky. The only sets that look good are the 2 marine aircraft.

How can you mess up the Scorpion? Heck, how can you mess up the Warthog?!?!?

EPIC PHAIL!!!!! Noooo! They ruined it! Gosh dang it, why can they just make a decent product? Why the heck did they get the rights!? Why can't Lego just support violence like everyone else and base one series off an M rated video game.... Ugh, the warthog looks awful....

I will never be able to play Halo again. Thanks guys, or, more accurately thanks Mega Bloks. They have the reverse Midas touch: all they touch turns to ugly piles of shit.
