Re:creation has confirmed the release of its hotly tipped Halo 4 die-cast vehicles.

The firm - which is the UK distributor for the line - will launch Jada Toys' collection in August.

The five die-cast vehicles include the Mongoose (£12.99), Ghost (£14.99), Warthog (£19.99) and Banshee (£24.99) from Halo 4, as well as the popular Hornet from Halo 3 (£34.99).

There will also be a special Arctic Edition Warthog vehicle available exclusively in the UK at Toys R Us.

On top of this, the range features a unique large scale 14-inch Collector's Edition of the Halo 4 Warthog (£59.99), complete with operational steering system and a hood that opens to reveal a detailed engine.

"Our mission is to select and distribute desirable, on-trend products, so the addition of the die-cast Halo 4 range to Re:creation's line-up is an extremely exciting one," said Mary Captieux, brand manager at Re:creation. "The Halo game franchise represents a true entertainment phenomenon and we fully anticipate this line to be a huge hit with fans of the series."

Halo 4 on Xbox 360 launches worldwide on November 6th from Microsoft. To date, the Halo series has sold more than 42 million games worldwide, generating nearly $3 billion in total franchise sales. It has also inspired consumer products such as novels, live action features, comic books, action figures and apparel.
