Mega Bloks Halo UNSC Pelican Gunship Was $100 Now $50 @ Amazon & Free Shipping! (EXPIRED)

If you’re still on the lookout for some toys for kids for Christmas, perhaps your own kids or nieces, nephews, friends of the family, there’s a great price on this Mega Bloks set on Amazon today. You can pick up the Mega Bloks Halo UNSC Pelican Gunship, Lights and Sounds at a discount – it was $99.99 and it is now only $50 with free shipping.

Eva noticed here in this post another great Mega Bloks deal, check it out too. This Mega Bloks Halo UNSC Pelican Gunship, Lights and Sounds comes with 1161 pieces (!) and it says it is for children of aged 8 and upwards. It also looks like quite a complicated set with a ton of accessories, such as:

UNSC Troops: Spartan in Operator covert ops, Spartan in Pathfinder covert ops, Spartan in Scout silver. Weapons: Shotgun, DMR, M6D Pistol x2, Binary Rifle, Frag Grenade x2, M6C Socom x2

We’re usually LEGO lovers in this house, have been for a while now. But did you know that Mega Bloks are compatible with LEGO bricks? A while ago, my sister sold me a large batch of her LEGO. I expressed concerns that I didn’t want any fakes, as I’d heard about difficulties putting bricks together when LEGO fake bricks were involved. She assured me they were all legitimately bought LEGO. But when I opened it up, I looked in depth and I showed her the tiny Mega Bloks logos on many of the bricks. It turns out she’d bought a few Mega Bloks set and just mixed them in with the LEGOs, completely unknowingly.

As for a price comparison on this Halo Mega Bloks set, I’ve spotted it for $100 at both Best Buy and Future Shop. It also shows as $110 @ The Mega Bloks official site. I can’t find this exact set for sale at any of the other major toy retailers, just the previously mentioned stores. Anyway, the price from Amazon is pretty damn great, especially with free shipping. There are some reviews on the Mega Bloks site, such as:

Cool, but I wish that there was a marine. The lights and sounds were a nice addition. Overall, an awesome set.

So what about you? Mega Bloks or LEGO?

Amazon Canada: Mega Bloks Jeep Ride-On Was $55 | Now $20 (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada: Mega Bloks Jeep Ride On Was $55 | Now $20 (EXPIRED)

Amazon has some great deals on today on Mega Bloks and one notable one that I found is on the Mega Bloks Jeep ride-on, that was $52.35, now $20.94.

Regularly $52.35 and now on sale for only $20.94, it sells for $50 at Toys R Us. I like that this is a 2-in-1 toy, great for toddlers. I had something similar to this when my kids were tods, and they loved it. Kids just love being able to put something in the seats of things!

There are great reviews on this toy like this one:

Got it for our grandson who turned 2. As soon as he found the buttons and the different sounds each button, a big smile on his face and he was out riding it all over. Surely will be his favorite toy for a long time!

Looks like it is a great gift from a grandparent. Since shipping is free on $25, I decided to scour the rest of Amazon’s site for more deals to get myself free shipping. I found a few other hot Mega Bloks deals. By the way, you definitely still have time to order before Christmas. I ordered something yesterday and the expected delivery date is tomorrow. I love that!

Another hot deal from Mega Bloks on Amazon is on the Build and Learn ABC spell. Regularly $13.43, it is on sale for only $5.37. This set is seriously cute and it is already in my cart. That is a perk of my deal-hunting job – I can get them before I get to tell anyone. My youngest son is in kindergarten and learning to spell and he loves Lego and building toys and for this very low price, I could not resist getting this.

There are varying reviews, but to me, what you see is what you get. One reviewer complained that there were too many single blocks, but that’s how you get the letters, so I’m not sure what else you’d expect. Toys R Us has this set on sale for $12, so Amazon’s price is really the best.

Halo Mega Bloks are also on sale at greatly reduced prices and this sale is worth checking out.

Amazon Canada: Mega Bloks Halo Countdown Only $44 (Was $110)

Posted by on May 30, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Amazon Canada: Mega Bloks Halo Countdown Only $44 (Was $110)

Amazon Canada has a hot deal on the Mega Bloks Halo Countdown set. It is now only $44.10, with a regular price of $110.26. Walmart did have it for $40 on clearance, but it is sold out. Sears Outlet has it for $58.94, but that will also be with additional shipping costs, whereas Amazon will ship this for free.

While I don’t normally blog toys on clearance, unless they are a very hot toy, this one has amazing reviews. When I think of Mega Bloks, I think of the mish mash sets that my young kids play with, but this is so much more. One reviewer called this set a masterpiece and another said this is a must-have for any collector. The reviewers also talked about how much better quality Mega Bloks is now, and that all Halo lovers will love this set.

My kids aren’t quite into Halo, but this does look like something my older boys would enjoy. They won’t care that the set originally came out in 2011. There are rockets, a spaceplane, a Sabre and so much more to do epic space battles. It also has a lifetime warranty, which is epic for a toy like this.

It is recommended for children ages eight and up, and is a #1 best seller for Amazon, so that says a lot. I would suggest getting this set immediately if you want it, as I think it will sell out.
