Dark Horse Reveals New Halo 5 Items At Toy Fair

OR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: NEW YORK, NY—At Toy Fair 2016, 343 Industries and Dark Horse Deluxe are set to release a new set of replica ships based on Halo 5: Guardians.

A detailed polyresin six-inch replica of the stealth UNSC Prowler is the first release in the line of ship replicas from Halo 5: Guardians, followed by the beautifully crafted Covenant Banshee and the first Forerunner vehicle in the line, the Phaeton. All are slated for summer 2016 releases.

“With the success of our previous Halo ship replica offerings, we are really excited to dive into the Halo 5: Guardians universe!” Dark Horse Product Development manager Chris Gaslin said.

To date, 343 Industries and Dark Horse have produced three Halo replica ships with a fourth on the way, including the UNSC Pelican Dropship, the UNSC Infinity, the Covenant Truth and Reconciliation, and the forthcoming UNSC Pillar of Autumn, which will be released in May 2016.

343 Industries and Dark Horse have also produced two blockbuster comics series with canonical story lines written by writers from the video game franchise, Halo: Initiation and Halo: Escalation, and will release the graphic novel Halo: Fall of Reach in spring 2016

“Since I was a kid, I’ve been obsessed with spaceship models The more detailed, the better. There was something so visceral about holding a ship in your hands, feeling the weight and heft of it, and if I’m honest, swooping them low and tight above a hedge or a lawn and pretending I was making a bombing run on Endor. The Dark Horse replica Halo ships are exquisitely crafted, and now have pride of place in my Halo collection, and adding Forerunner, UNSC, and Covenant craft to my collection is a selfish and guilty pleasure. Nowadays I may not make those bombing runs, but I confess, I’ll still voice my own sound effects as I swoop them from the couch to the mantle,” said Frank O’Connor, franchise development director of 343 Industries.
