Mega Blok’s Power Rangers theme continues with the release of the Super Megaforce Sky Ship Showdown set (pictured above). The set is based on the Power Rangers MegaForce TV show that airs on Nickelodeon.
Also available on store shelves now is the new Adventure Force line from Mega Bloks featuring Police, Fire (Fire Station set pictured above) and Military themed sets. The new Adventure Force sets are now available at Wal-Mart and are priced between $9.97 and $49.97.
Mega Bloks Barbie has been considered Mega Brands answer to the wildly successful LEGO Friends theme. But it seems Mega Brands plans to attack the dominance of the LEGO Friends line on another front, with the release of a new theme, Mega Bloks My Life As.
Taken from a line of dolls available at Wal-Mart, the My Life As line features figures that are oddly enough less doll like compared to the figures in the Mega Bloks Barbie theme. The new theme from Mega Bloks is even odder given the fact that the my Life As dolls resemble and compete with those made by American Girl, which is owned by Mattel, who also owns the Mega Bloks. But given that only four sets of My Life As have been released, it may be too early to ascertain the motivation for its creation. The new Mega Bloks My Life as sets include:
The sets will be priced between $19.97 and $39.97.
October will see the release of a massive 3340 piece Mega Bloks Halo Signature Series set, the Covenant Scarab. The set will be available at Toys R Us but whether it will be exclusive to the store is still yet unknown. The Covenant Scarab will be joining other high piece count Mega Blok Set releases such as the Forward Unto Dawn and the UNSC Mammoth.
Mega Bloks Halo sets will soon feature a revamped micro action figure. The new figure will have an interchangeable armor system, allowing for the use of any type of armor on multiple figures that support the new system. Expect to see the new figures out in Meha Bloks Halo sets this Fall.
Two new New York City Police Department themed sets will be joining the Mega Bloks World Builders theme. The World Builders line is best known for its sets based around real world vehicles from manufacturers such as John Deere, Caterpillar and Jeep. The new sets include:
NYPD Mobile Command Center – $29.99.
NYPD Police Chopper – $9.99
The NYPD is the largest police department in the United States as well as one of the most well known. Expect to see the two sets on store shelves in the near future.
