Has anybody got this email from Mega Bloks about new ONI vechicles? Is it Canon? Pictures can be found on their website. Check out the description:

Special Report: ONI REAP-X


There has been quite a bit of buzz about our upcoming Fall product line since Nuremburg and New York Toy Fairs. We’re excited that we can finally give Bloks Brigade members the first official look at the exciting new Mega Bloks Halo ONI REAP-X builds! Read on below to learn about the ONI REAP-X subdivision and two new vehicles developed by their team of engineers.

The Office of Naval Intelligence, commonly referred to as ONI, is the intelligence service branch of the UNSC. While ONI serves various functions and operates under a multitude of subdivisions, the existence of the Reverse Engineering and Prototyping–Xenotechnology department, acronym REAP-X, is unknown outside the ONI division. Working under the ONI umbrella, REAP-X develops concepts, technologies and applications that are often field tested by ONI via other military branch deployments.

The REAP-X department evolved from smaller splinter groups created during the Human-Covenant War and helped funnel weapons and shield technology to human forces via Misriah and other firms as the war came to a close. Its big breakthrough however, was a Forerunner slipspace engine discovery that created the basis for the engineering concepts that helped complete the Infinity project. With unlimited resources, funding and attention from top brass the department houses many variants of never before seen military vehicles developed for special missions.

Mainline activities:

Weapon development
Technology analysis and research
Practical reapplication of alien technology
Vehicle and transport development
Hardlight research (Boson-Photon Fields)

The UNSC Siege Bike

ONI’s solution to single-manned rapid assault vehicles like the Covenant Ghost or Brute Chopper is none other than the UNSC Siege Bike. Positioned on a heavy-grade, all-terrain single traction tread, the Siege Bike can easily traverse challenging environments, reaching speeds of over 145kph (90mph) while maintaining incredible control and field dexterity. The forward-facing armor plate protects the operator while displaying intel for tactical information, as well as firing system controls.


The Siege Bike’s armament is a side-mounted heavy machine gun (M268 HMG) with spectrum-enhanced visual tracking functionality, designed specifically to target well-fortified enemy strongholds and barricades. The goal of the UNSC Siege Bike is simple yet brutal: Through the deployment of multiple, heavily armed and swift Siege Bikes, offensive assaults can form an unstoppable wall of firepower, quickly tearing through enemy defenses.


The UNSC Light Assault VTOL

In the vein of the Hornet and the Sparrowhawk, the UNSC Light Assault VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) craft is a heavily armed, full mobility combat flier designed to operate in confined environments, such as forests, cave interiors, or even a skyscraper-dense metropolis. Unlike the other UNSC VTOLs which often have limited push mobility due to their turbine placement, the Light Assault VTOL has three turbines, one of which is a rear-mounted thrust system that allows the vehicle to quickly and deftly navigate narrow spaces, as well as engage swift enemy fliers like the Covenant Banshee. Lightly armored and capable of carrying only a single pilot, the real benefit of this vehicle is its armament: Below its flanking turbines hang twin autocannons (GAU-10/A HAC) and a pair of rocket pods (M302 Class-1 GMLS), both of which are extremely competent arsenals when providing ground support or engaging in air-to-air combat.

"was a Forerunner slipspace engine discovery"


why the hell was something extremely important given in this matter?
Please be true.

Any chance you could post a link? I can't seem to find anything,

It was given in Glasslands when they discovered the Forerunner garage.

Sorry I dont have a link, it was sent through email and I guess its not available on their website yet. I wish I knew had to get the images from the email and post them on here. One looks like a motorcycle and the other looks like a hoover craft.

Im a 99% sure its true, I dont think Mega Bloks would lie to us. Im just wondering why something new like this was brought out by them and not 343i first!

Can't you just right-click and save them? Or you could always hit "Print Screen" and paste the image in paint.

Onyx81 got them up. Thanks
Interesting.

Wonderful, even more secret organizations within ONI.

Even better, this one is working secretly and specifically with advanced alien tech. Yay!


Who knows how much of the stuff they find they might keep to themselves. Especially since they're apparently being given unlimited funds and attention. They could do what they want with this stuff.
Build an Archive of the story you love.

There probably keeping Shepard and Godzilla locked up somewhere :P


Interesting... every Mega Bloks set so far has been at least based on a vehicle or character from the Halo games but these are obviously something we haven't seen yet or something they made up. I wonder if we'll see these in a future Halo game or map pack? They are using Halo 4 figures with the sets after all.
Cool!
Now, I want these in Halo 5!
The VTOL looks sick! Like a "Ghost of The Sky"
And the Seiege bike looks like a mongoose with a tread.
More vehicle variety for Halo 5 would be welcome.
Whoa! How could this be incorporated into the canon? The only book that could bring in these vehicles is the last Karen Traviss novel, which hasn't even been announced. Very interesting....
Hey, are you people seeing that Active Camo grunt in the Siege Bike photo?

you mean the silver grunt ?lol
Maybe we'll be seeing them in a second season of SpOps, an upcoming map pack, or a future game. Perhaps they decided to release the toy designs first and see if people want them in the game.
Very intriguing, thanks for sharing ODST ZERO.
