McFarlane extends their Halo line by adding a vehicle to their 5-inch scaled line of Halo action figures, including an exclusive set for Toys R Us. With their recent downsizing and the Halo line’s “in-between” scale, this is somewhat of a surprise. Vehicles are commonplace in the 3.75-inch scale and practically non-existent in 6-inch scale. Previously, Spawn had produced the Warthog, Ghost, and Brute Chopper for their smaller 3-inch line of Halo figures.
Granted, the Mongoose is one of the smallest vehicles in the Halo franchise, but if this does well, maybe we’ll see more. Personally, I’d love to see a Warthog for this line.

This October you can begin your vehicular assault with the Mongoose Ultra-light All-terrain Vehicle. The boxed set includes a 5-inch scale Mongoose and exclusive Spartan driver with 26 moving parts. The Mongoose comes loaded with various functionality including handlebars that turn, tires that spin, adjustable foot pegs and a rear seat that folds down to allow a 2nd figure to fit on the back! (Second figure sold separately)
The Mongoose is the first in-scale vehicle compatible with our 5-inch Halo figures. There are three versions available, each with a different Spartan:
- MONGOOSE WITH ORANGE MARK V (new armor type!)
- MONGOOSE WITH CYAN EOD
- MONGOOSE WITH CRIMSON AND STEEL CQB (Exclusive to Diamond and Toys R Us!)
The Halo Mongoose is scheduled to reach stores nationwide in October.
