Bloksfest 2015 : Halo Meets Toys on UK Soil!

template1

prmor

Halo the game near and dear to my heart, and to the wonderful hosts of TBOD is their sentimental favorite and is the last true string of their hearts near the Xbox… well Mega Bloks is the makers of Halo building sets that have been around for a few years and the largest convention of Mega Bloks is held annually on the TBOD motherland itself.. ENGLAND! (To add drama, as I type this I am playing ‘Jerusalem by Emerson, Lake & Palmer loudly in my home office.)

The third annual Mega BloksFest is hitting the Parr Hall on July 18th 2015. With hundreds of Mega Bloks sets on sale, huge video game tournaments with prizes, dozens of stall holders and hundreds of Mega Bloks fans gathering in one epic venue, this year is set to be outstanding.

Mega Bloks themselves will be in attendance with dozens of prizes and previews of upcoming sets with European first looks at loads of the amazing new products coming soon.

To help promote this event, Connor & I cross the point of no return, with a new genre for us in this promotional video.

Buy tickets and have fun! Don’t mention my name, you’ll likely get punched in the face… there is a hard core Mega Bloks crowd who like to gamble.
