MEGA Brands impressed New York Comic Con attendees before they even stepped onto the showroom floor. Outside in the main pavilion was a cool World of Warcraft display showing off life-size building block models of Thrall (pictured top) and the legendary Frostmourne Sword. MEGA Brands' booth continued to wow (no pun intended) with more World of Warcraft, including an amazing diorama and a look at future sets starring the Pandaren, a new character race of panda creatures. Relasing in spring 2013, Pandaren sets included "Sha of Anger" (pictured above) and "Rojo".
With HALO 4 on the horizon, the timing couldn't be better for revealing new HALO MEGA Blocks. Releasing this November will be MEGA Brands' largest HALO set yet, the 2877 piece "Forward Unto Dawn". This massive UNSC vessel measures 36 inches long when combined, and has the ability to be split into two sections, both halves packed with tons of play featues. Foru figures are also included. Look for it exclusively at Toys"R"Us. Pre-orders are currently open at toysrus.com with the set priced at $249.99. Other new HALO items include the UNSC Mantis, a new HALO 4 mech coming out in 2013 and Covenant Seraph.
MEGA Blocks' newest property - the hit action figure video game Skylanders Spyro's Adventure - was represented with cool life-size models, a full diorama, and numerous sets. The latter included "Crusher's Pirate Quest" (in stores now) and loads of other new Skylanders Giants stes, due in November, toi coincide with the new game's release. MEGA Brands is working on webcodes that will unlock special in-game items for future Skylanders sets.
