    Any chance you code post the code for Green Goblin? The codes from a couple pages earlier didn't seem to work for me.

    Just got the ODST Close Combat Specialist. Awesome. My squads are almost the way I want them. Also converted a flamethrower to a chaingun using the piece from the weapon pack. So cool. Need to get a battle-scape or two.




    You mean from the Marvel packs? You could sell three for pretty good coin. Got a full set off eBay for my son for his b-day and I got to keep War Machine and armoured Spidey. Sure hope they do more super-heroes, DC too.

    So... did series three of the blind packs ever come out? Also, I need to get some BRs in my mini-armoury, any small, cheaper sets have them?

    I know there's the one ODST that has it, but I was kinda hoping for something less stupidly over-priced.

    So I found the Series 3 blind packs at TRU in Oakville, Ontario. I had noticed that the tampo'd numbers are different for packs found in the US from packs found in Canada for series 2. Either way, I bought one of each to see what the numbers are, and here they are (for Canadian packs anyhow, not sure if they are different for series 3):

    A01031MM - Orange Spartan
    A02031MM - Cyan CQB Spartan
    A03031MM - Covenant Grunts
    A04031MM - Arctic Pilot
    A05031MM - Covenant Brute
    A07031MM - Yellow Covenant Elite Pilot
    A09031MM - Yellow Marine
    A10031MM - Active Camo Elite

    And they come disassembled in the packs this time so it's hard to feel around for the weapons to figure out who it is. Hope this helps!

    I got me a red CQB Spartan with some weapons and a stand for them from Target. Not as good as Lego, but damn good nonetheless. :)  Any sets I should get?

    Also, this is something that kind of bugs me about the Halo Mega Bloks figures. How come we don't see Mark VI Spartans? It's always the Mark IV/V Spartans.

    There's actually no Mark V Spartans. It's all originally based on Halo Wars. Though honestly because of the size and proportions they don't look too much unlike Mark VI's.

    Also, what weapons do all the Series 3 blind pack figs come with?

    I bought a couple of the Series 3 blind packs last Friday. Got the two grunts, and the yellow elite with the clear energy sword. I don't really care for the elite, but love the grunts since they come with an energy pistol and a plasma grenade. If you need grunts you can definitely tell them apart from the other figures since they aren't disassembled like the other series 3 minifigs.

    Damn, I definitely want to get a few of those blue weapon packs for all those covenant weapons. About time they added needlers! If only they would do plasma rifles now.

    Oh right! I remember seeing those new anniversary sets on Halo Waypoint! I'm deffinately troop-building that blue team four-pack. BTW, that Elite in the Locust attack TOTALLY has a new headsculpt.

    Also I have a question, how easy would it be to dye these little Spartans? I want to paint them but they're all cast in one colour.

    Also...FLOOD!

    So it looks like we're getting needlers, and that High Ground playset appears to come with a mauler as well as a spartan laser, unless my eyes deceive me.

    Oh and after watching the Toy Fair youtube videos, I see that we are getting a Phantom, Falcon, Elephant, Rocket Hog, and other fun things. Dang. Oh, and a fuel rod gun comes with a drop pod elite, nice! So much stuff that will tempt me but I won't be able to buy.
