NKOK Launches New Line of Halo RC Vehicles

Halo nuts and toy enthusiasts, this one’s for you.

Toy manufacturer NKOK is back on the gaming scene after releasing its Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing RC car collection last month, this time launching a line of RC vehicles inspired by Bungie’s Halo franchise. Available in the US at Toys R Us, GameStop and Kmart stores, and online at www.gamestop.com, www.toysrus.com and www.target.com, the Halo RC collection consists of four sweet rides, including:

M12R Rocket Warthog ($24.99):

As seen in Halo: Reach, The M12R Rocket Warthog swaps out the M41 Chaingun or M68 Gauss Cannon for some heavy firepower in the form of a rear-mounted M79 65mm Rocket Launcher Systems capable of taking out Grunts, Jackals, and Elites as well as heavy vehicles like Ghosts, Wraiths and Banshees. With the M79 weapons system, the Rocket Warthog combines maneuverability with massive artillery to give Carter and the rest of Noble Team a sliver of hope at saving Reach, and NKOK will put fans and collectors in the fight right alongside them.

The R/C Rocket Warthog comes with two figurines, Noble 6 and Carter-259, leader of Noble Team. The figurines will be to scale and fit into either of the Rocket Warthog’s seats or station at the fully moveable Rocket Launcher. With an approximate top speed of 7 MPH, the Rocket Warthog will give the fastest vehicles in NKOK’s Halo Collection a run for their money. It receives signals at 27 MHz and is powered by a total of six AA batteries; four for the Warthog itself, and two for the controller.

M12 Arctic Warthog LRV ($24.99):

The Arctic Warthog R/C car comes with a Master Chief sporting Mjolnir Mark VI armor and Red Spartan figurine. The rear-mounted M41 Light Anti-Aircraft Gun turret is fully moveable and has a place to position one of the figurines. With a top speed of approx. 7 MPH, the Arctic Warthog is the fastest R/C vehicle in the collection. It receives signals at 27 MHz and is powered by a total of six AA batteries; four for the Warthog itself, and two for the controller.

M274 Arctic Mongoose Ultra-Light ATV ($24.99):

The Arctic Mongoose is a faithful representation of the ATV used by the UNSC forces in Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST featuring the Arctic Warfare Camo. Also included with the Mongoose is a Master Chief figurine. A top speed of approx. 6 MPH and receiving at 49 MHz will provide entertaining races with the Warthog. The Mongoose takes six batteries; four for the Mongoose itself and two for the remote control.

First seen in Halo 3, the AV-14 Attack VTOL Arctic Hornet is an indoor flying helicopter, lifted by a pair of coaxial rotors. It features stability and precision speed control. The transmitter utilizes tri-band infrared technology, which will actually allow three hornets to fly in the same room at the same time. The remote control is powered by six AA batteries and the Hornet itself runs on a rechargeable Li-Poly battery.
