    Nice they're making a Cortana. Don't really know why they haven't made it an acc. before...

    Might get a Master Chief... since I've missed them all to now.

    I have all the Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2 figures made by McFarlane.. and the Alien and Predator figures made by the guys are quite good. not AS good as the Medicom or NECA or Sideshow but they are not as expensive! good balance between the quality and price

    It says on Spawn.com that he has 18 points of articulation >_>

    Also, the vehicles are going to be partly diecast.

    Yeah, they do. Here is the lineup taken from Spawn.com:

    The proposed action figure lineup is as follows:

    MASTER CHIEF -- The protagonist of the Halo series stands at 5 inches tall, and has more than 18 points of articulation. Equipped with his trademark assault rifle, Master Chief's mission is to protect Earth against the Covenant, an alien empire threatening the world in the 26th century. Biological and cybernetic enhancements and rigorous military training have resulted in Master Chief's unquestioned status as the finest soldier mankind has ever produced.

    BRUTE CHIEFTAIN -- The highest rank in the Brute hierarchy is the Chieftain, whose articulated figure is the tallest of the series at 6 inches. Belonging to the Covenant, the Brute Chieftain carries the gravity hammer, a close-range weapon with the ability to alter gravity at a local level and crush his enemies and surroundings.

    CORTANA -- Developed by the United Nations Space Command (UNSC), Cortana is a smart A.I. with the ability to project herself as a holographic image and be transferred between computer systems, including the cybernetic armor of Master Chief. This figure's base features an LED light that illuminates her 4.5 inch-tall figure.

    JACKAL SNIPER -- To the benefit of the Covenant, Jackal Snipers have incredibly sharp reflexes and deadly aim. Standing at 5 inches, the Jackal Sniper is equipped with its signature beam rifle, which has the ability for long range shooting and a high degree of damage.

    GRUNT 2-Pack -- At 3.5 inches tall, the Grunt is a menace to the human race, and represents the vast majority of the Covenant infantry. The Grunts are the lowest tier of the Covenant hierarchy, and move in packs. They are expected to unquestioningly obey the commands of their Brute commanders. Outfitted with weapons including the Plasma Pistol and Needler, the Grunts may not seem much more than cannon fodder, but in groups, they can be deadly.
    There will also be a three-vehicle line-up that includes:
    WARTHOG -- As the most widely recognized vehicle of the UNSC, the Warthog is a ground vehicle capable of carrying up to three soldiers. Known as the best all-around vehicle for its power, adaptability and toughness, the Warthog measures 3 inches in length and is built of die-cast metal and plastic.

    GHOST -- The Ghost is a single-seat, anti-gravity vehicle used by the Covenant. Mounted with twin plasma cannons, the Ghost is a rapid-attack vehicle designed for speed and maneuverability. The Ghost is 3 inches long and made with die-cast metal and plastic.

    BRUTE CHOPPER -- The Brute Chopper makes its debut in Halo 3. A single-wheeled vehicle, the Brute Chopper will prove invaluable to the Covenant's campaign against humanity. With a length of 3 inches, the Brute Chopper will be made of die-cast metal and plastic.

    Joyride's Cortana fetches hundreds of dollars on Ebay now though >.>

    Question is, how much will these cost? Anybody have any idea? I was a near completist with the Joyride stuff, and I'd like to know how bad the damage is gonna be. So what's the average cost of a McFarlane, seeing as how I don't own any (at least that I know of, my brother may have 1 or 2...).

    Never been a fan of any of McFarlane's stuff.

    But I'm posting just to reiterate the need for a Revoltech MC. And then a Revoltech Samus, just 'cause of that video.
