Halo Speeds onto Roadways

The National Entertainment Collectibles Association has partnered with 343 Industries for a new global merchandise program featuring the “Halo” video game franchise that will include, among other items, branded motorcycle helmets.

The new line, which will be available in April 2014, will include a wide assortment of products including 1:4 scale action figures, mini-figures, DOT-approved motorcycle helmets, prop replicas, board games and HeroClix miniatures games for a variety of platforms.

“We love seeing the Halo worlds and aspects of its universe being translated into new forms and functions, but it’s rare that we get the chance to see its rules, modes of play and strategies reinterpreted through another lens, so we couldn’t be happier to return to the world of HeroClix and Halo with our old friends at NECA,” says Frank O’Connor, franchise development director 343 Industries. “The broader partnership, with replicas, large-scale action figures and more is going to bear some amazing fruit. I won’t lie, the idea of cruising around on my motorbike with a Halo-inspired, DOT-approved helmet gives me goose bumps.”
