Mega Bloks Halo US Rhino

The Mega Bloks Halo collection is a big hit at our house, because with three boys there is just never enough action. The Mega Bloks HALO UNSC Rhino and other Mega Bloks Halo building sets have been at the top of the wish list, because my 10-year-old is dreaming about a career in the military, and the USNC Rhino has not disappointed.

The USNC Rhino has cool camo effect building bloks, and it is the perfect holiday gift for action-loving boys. The details are great, and because of the great construction, it is sturdy enough for some serious war play.

Building with Mega Bloks The set up is easy, and the instructions are simple, concise and clear to follow. I especially appreciated the very detailed information when it came to differentiating between similar bloks.

Mega Bloks is great at overlapping blocks and braiding them together to avoid as much possible breakage as possible, and this process makes the final construction more sturdy and thereby easier to play with.


The Mega Blocks HALO UNSC Rhino building set includes:


  • Buildable UNSC Rhino tank and Forerunner base
  • UNSC Figurines: Spartan in Scout Red armor, Marine
  • Covenant Figurines: Grunt in Spec Ops Yellow harness x2
  • Armory pieces: Recon helmet, Recon right arm, Recon left arm, Recon torso
  • Accessories and Weapons: Deployable Cover, Comm Backpack, Battle Rifle, Plasma Pistol, Fuel Rod Cannon, Plasma Cannon, Needler, Plasma Grenade x2


Building the Mega Bloks UNSC Rhino is great for the kids, as it teaches them how to follow step-by-step instructions closely. The final result is quite impressive, and the UNSC Rhino has made quite an impression on our kids. This Halo building set is recommended for children ages 8 and up, but with the help of an adult action-lovig kids as young as 5 can easily enjoy this fantastic action set.

The Mega Bloks Halo is great for older boys, who are not quite ready to give up all toys yet. If you have an action-loving builder on your holiday shopping list, this series will definitely be a hit.
