Real-Life Halo Experience Coming To A City Near You – “Halo: Outpost Discovery”

Starting this summer, Microsoft/ Xbox will begin a brand new interactive exhibit that will jump from city to city across America. Halo heads, this one is for you!

The “Halo: Outpost Discovery” will be a touring fan experience for all ages that brings the Halo universe to life in five major cities across the US this summer.

It will feature a museum with life-sized props, gaming spaces, exclusive merchandise, lazer tag (!) and a virtual reality experience.

As of now, the five locations will be Orlando from July 5-7, Philadelphia from July 19-21, Chicago from August 2-4, Houston from August 16-18, and wrapping up in Anaheim on August 30-September 1.

Let’s hope this event does well enough that they can add some extra dates and venues later on, like NYC (hint hint).

Kubros are part of the Megabloks family and are stylized (Minecraft style, in fact) building sets so that you can create a block style character of some of your favorite pop-culture icons. Two waves been scheduled so far, with each one having six figures in the wave, including the T-800, Hellboy, He-Man, Skeletor, Spock, and characters from Destiny, HALO, Minions, and Assassin’s Creed to name a few.

New York Toy Fair 2013: Bobbleheads and POP figures from “Funko”

You can’t spell “Funko” without “fun”, and this company always brings their unique and humorous take on pop-culture at NY Toy Fair every year.

This time around, the company unveiled a ton of new bobblehead and POP figures from all across the board. Characters included things from the Rocky series, Halo, Mass Effect, Sonic the Hedgehog, Bruce Lee, Star Wars, Star Trek, Robocop, The Hangover, and tons more. My favorites were the Masters of the Universe figures and the new Big Bang Theory bobbleheads!

P1020969

One of the hot new items debuting at Toy Fair was their line for “The Walking Dead” which as of now are unpainted, but expect these bad boys to look pretty sick once they do come out.

Also at the show was their line of DC Comics themed “Domo Kun” blind-box figures, and their new Cupcakes series, which is a new line of more feminine characters squeezed into a cupcake. However, the biggest item to come out, in this reporter’s humble opinion, would be “Funko’s” line of “My Little Pony” figures, which look amazing and infinitely better than the current toys on the market. They really capture the look of the characters, and the lack of rooted hair for a mane adds to the animated feel to them.

Check out the gallery below for more photos from “Funko”!
