I sure do love learning how things are made. Whether it’s a game, costume, or toy; I’m fascinated by the process and it always ends up being more complex or interesting than I imagined. Being at San Diego Comic Con this year and seeing all the incredible stuff people show up with reminded me of this. The 405th, a community of Halo cosplayers, were there donned in amazing armor and props. Mega Bloks built an epic diorama to help us reveal a new Warzone map, Raid on Apex 7.Plus, we had Warzone playable on the show floor. The process of creating all of these is fascinating to me and in the next few episodes of The Bulletin we’ll be exposing the people and work that go into them.
Going to McFarlane Toys is just the start. Todd and team were gracious hosts allowing the team to spend an entire day in at the office learning their history and vision for creating figures and we got an early look at the stuff they’re making for Halo 5: Guardians.
Fresh Picks was very easy this week as we’ve got two brand new making-of videos you should check out:
A Hero Reborn ViDoc weighs in at 12 minutes with a bunch of new info and gameplay from Halo 5: Guardians. If you are hungry for more campaign goodness before October 27th, this is the video you want to see.
And the folks at Mega Bloks put together a neat making-of video of the Raid on Apex 7 Warzone map diorama. I’m hoping we get to put that bad boy in the studio.
Thanks for watching and we’ll be back with a new episode on July 31!
