New 'Halo' Mongoose Sets Rolling Into Stores
Two New Versions Available this April
Friday, March 19, 2010

McFarlane Toys' first foray into 5-inch scale vehicles has been a huge success, leaving retailers and fans alike asking for more. We're proud to deliver two new versions of the "M274 Ultra-Light, All-Terrain Vehicle," better known as the Mongoose.

MONGOOSE WITH SPARTAN EVA (YELLOW/BLUE)
This new version of the Mongoose features the 2-person vehicle as it first appeared in Halo 3. Vehicle comes with a Spartan EVA figure in multiplayer yellow and blue -- the perfect color-coordinated driver for the yellow and blue Elite Flight figure from Series 7.

MONGOOSE WITH ODST ROOKIE IN VISR MODE
Our first campaign Mongoose set is inspired by the story of the latest Halo game, Halo 3: ODST. Though not as powerful as a Spartan, Orbital Drop Shock Troopers such as the Rookie have a unique vision enhancement to make up for it: VISR mode. This low-light amplification system outlines friendly units in green and enemy units in red.

This VISR mode Mongoose set is designed to go perfectly with the Brute Captain figure in Halo Series 8. Click here for more info and photos of those figures.

VISR mode helps an ODST see in the dark, so we've added a special bonus feature to help you see our VISR mode figures in the dark: glow-in-the-dark paint! Leave either of our VISR mode figures under a bright light for at least ten minutes, turn out the lights, and you'll see its glowing outline, just like in the game.
