    I bought the first Halo 5-pack with Master Chief, the 2 Marines, and the 2 Jackals to see how they were...

    AND I WILL NEVER BUY THEM AGAIN. THEY WERE ABSOLUTE CRAP.

    As far as my experience with the 3-incher 5-packs go, they are not well engineered and are fragile! The articulation on the jackals and the 2 marines is perfectly fine (no breakage happening there), but Chief is AWFUL.

    My first Chief literally tore apart in my hands after I carefully moved his joints. The joints most susceptible to breaking are his shoulder and hip joints because they are molded from soft blue plastic (the hell!?!?). His head articulation does not feel that strong either.

    Anyways, long story short, I exchanged my broken Chief from the 5-pack for a new 5-pack and since then only display them or keep them in their package. And when I pose them, I move Chief very carefully and don't move his joints/limbs too far out. The 2 marines and 2 jackals on the other hand, are sturdy and can be moved around just fine. But they are all really more like "display pieces" than action figures.

    I never bought any more after that, So I cannot tell you how the regular sized figures are.

    But, I AM looking forward to McFarlane Toys's Halo toy line. Hopefully the quality of their toys will be better than Joyride's.

    I own a PS2, but I have played Halo 1 & 2 with my friends on their XBOX and 360 consoles.
    Both games are very very fun but I'm not giving my money to Billion-dollar Microsoft until they fix the quality issues with their 360's (Red Ring o' Death) and give us free online like Sony does. However this doesn't mean I won't pick up Halo for the PC.:wink: 

    Huh, now that i think of it, I really should go get Halo for my new PC. I should more than be able to run the game with no problems.

    ^ How's the quality (durability) on those Chaos?

    My experience with the first 5-Pack kinda made me stay away from all the rest.

    And I could never find an original Master Chief figure. If I did, then I would have bought him too.

    It's ok I guess. Feels kind of hollow but otherwise he's pretty sturdy

    I went through an RvB phase as you can see by my Spartan choices.

    The little guys weren't too hot, but the big guys are great.

    I bought the Master Chief two years ago. He's alright, but lacks articulation. I find that to be the primary flaw in all Mcfarlin toys, they're more like sculptures with four points of articulation.

    I bought what I assume to be the last version of Master Chief figure that Joyride did. He came with the Flood infection form, a shotgun and a pistol. The pistol actually has a removable clip which is pretty freaking cool to me. The one I got is very cool and pretty nicely articulated. My only complaint would be that the ball-jointed hands are floppy but I believe that's intentional. Anyway yeah, that one's nice. I haven't bought any of the others. I am looking forward to McFarlane's Master Chief too. He looks to have Marvel Legends style articulation. I only hope he comes with a bunch of weapons. I kinda need weapon variety for that character.

    I've got a white MC that I got a few years ago. Its the model of armour form the first halo.

    Very well articulated, about 8 inches high, and came with an Assault Rifle an d Flamer. I loved it

    I have two figures from Halo2. I've got Master Chief, and the Arbiter. The Arbiter is huge and awesome, and towers over Master Chief. He's really great.
