Hey! Some Mega news for you all...
Here's the listings for some upcoming sets. No pics yet. Set names are not final but they describe what each set is.
Both of the new themes have this description attached; "Each collectible character has a unique expression. Includes 1 emoji speech bubble and accessories to play out your story!" so it sounds like they're aimed towards kids.


NEW THEME!
Referred to as 'Kingdom' on listings but may be named otherwise:
- King's Fortress (unknown number of figures but includes 1 female knight, a buildable dragon)
- Base Camp (tent, tree - 1 blue knight, 1 red knight,
- Tower Outpost (tower, red kingdom outpost - 1 blue knight, 1 red knight)
- Crossbow War Machine (1 red knight, 1 blue knight, 1 ogre)
- Catapult War Machine (2 blue knights, 1 ogre)

NEW THEME! Referred to as 'City' on listings but may be named otherwise:
- Roadster (red convertible with bike trailer, 3 bikes - 3 figures)
- Speed Boat (speedboat, beach - 3 figures)
- Ice Cream Stand (ice cream cart, tree, bench - 2 figures)
- Fruit Stand (fruit stand, bicycle - 2 figures)
- House (2 floors, interior & exterior - 4 figures, dog)

Call of Duty
- ?? (WW2 checkpoint with sidecar motorcycle - 1 american soldier, 1 enemy guard)

Halo
- Oni figure pack ( 2 ONI operators, 1 ONI technician, 1 security troopers, 1 ONI officer - there's only 4 figures in this pack and there are more than 4 figures listed here so one is incorrect)
- Covenant figure pack (1 Elite Ranger, 1 Elite minor, 1 Jackal minor, 1 Grunt minor)
- Yellow Spartan figure pack (Spartan technician, Spartan Hunter, Spartan vector, Spartan War Master)
- Active Camo accessory pack (translucent figure and red station including customisable weapons)
- Goblin Battlesuit (1 Spartan Opertator, 1 Grunt Minor)
- Camo Gungoose (1 Pathfinder Spartan)
- Banshee (battle-ravaged, buildable stand - 1 Spartan Mark IV, 1 banished Elite)

Destiny:
- Jovian Guard Titan (1 figure, accessories)
- Vanguard Titan (1 figure, accessories)
- Ending Warlock (1 figure, accessories)
- Kallipolis Hunter (1 figure, accessories)
- Lion's Vigil Hunter (1 figure, accessories)
- Raku Warlock (1 figure, accessories)
- Lord Saladin? (buildable arsenal environment, mystery engram - Lord Saladin, wolf)
- XUR? (buildable arsnal environment, mystery engram - XUR, XUR's customer)
- Gjallarwing Sparrow (1 Titan and 1 VEX Hobgoblin)
- Avalon Courser Sparrow (1 Warlock and 1 enemy)

Pokemon
- Blastoise

For more info, search Amazon.com for Mega Construx with the selection 'Include out of stock' ticked. Some of these sets have been removed but most are still there, including some Despicable Me and American Girl sets that I haven't mentioned here.

Really odd COD choice. ANOTHEr motorcycle with a side car? Really? And an enemy figure. Only real enemy (besides Zombies) in any COD set. Curious what this will look like....

I'm curious about the Kingdom and Civilian sets. If the civillian city sets yield some ethnically diverse skintones and /or heads (hair styles and colours) I'll buy more than a few. Also Legend of King Arthur Mega Bloks sets were the first sets IMO that showed the true potential of this action figure scale for mega. Pyrates and LOKA made me look at Mega figures instead of mega dragons and robots. I'd like to support the culmination of their progress in this fantasy theme with the Kingdom sets.

I'm curious about this declared COD enemy figure as well....

Please for all that is holy be articulated figures for the new themes! It would be a slap in the face to finally get a fantasy theme for it only to be crappy articulation. I also wonder if we will be getting the canceled AC templar knight stuff in kingdoms.

Nice, new themes. Hopefully Super articulated. and like knightwolf says maybe the return of the cancelled Assassin's Creed Templars as the template? Do want.

Covenant figure pack sounds great, time for an upgraded Jackal, and glad to see Goblin Battlesuit. GoodwillHunter leading the way.

The Astronaut pack and the Snow 4x4 set had the enemy from the CoD Ghosts game, they even have the patches on their arm. And the single carded Juggernaut.

For some reason, I think I should save my game in a brand new slot.

If the Checkpoint is the only new COD set...that is disappointing. Recycled motorcycle and electrical pole (slightly different but...) with a new single enemy figure....? Hope they have more planned...or the line is ending....ugh.

Well, there's the Jungle SATCOM Armory, the Dragonfire Drone, Heroes Series 2, the Urban Troop Pack, and we still have yet to get the WWII Flamethrower Shock Troops, all either recently out or due to come out. I wouldn't say that means the line is ending, just a bit of a lull.

But, really, no builds! Lots of figures with small buildable accesories.

It might just be a case of that's what sells. If MEGA sells, say, five times the profits for the figure packs than they do for the built sets, then that's naturally what they'll go for. Obviously this is just guesswork, but it's a theory.

Yeah, it seems Mega is moving to a mini action figure company. I think the only big buildings announced with pictures are the Pro Builder stuff.

I like the minifigs, but I liked the builds too. Especially the CoD vehicles.
