    In for Chief, Kat, and any other Noble Team 6.5" figures we get. As Spartans, they should be bigger, so I'm totally happy with that scale being a bit bigger than the rest of my collection. Hope it gets some aliens in it too like the 3.75" line, even if it's just named ones like Arby.

    Always regretted not getting into McFarlane's Halo line when I got serious about collecting, which was around when Reach came out. Had a college friend I sucked into the hobby too lol, who went hard and got everything right away. They were awesome at the time.. But I was trying to stay more focused on other toys. Then there's not really been anything since I really thought was good enough. Mattel's offering just wasn't up to snuff. 1000 Toys got close with their Chief, but it was too stylized in the end.. Everything here is looking perfect though.

    Learn from Mattel's mistake and make sure stores actually get these.
    I'm still salty that due to Mattel's mishandling we never got that Spartan Skeletor they planned.

    I'm not thrilled by how similar to MacFarlane's barely-posable-incapable-of-holding-their-accessories figures these are, but they're not bad. Infinite Chief looks good, and I like that they're doing Reach given it recently hit MCC, but I would really like to see original trilogy figures, especially the criminally untapped pool of Halo 1 and 2 designs. Give us some decently lithe Elites.

    Funny how shafted the original 3 games consistently are in terms of merchandise despite being, well, the original 3 games.

    This has a lot of potential, itching to see more, our crew at Toyark wasn't allowed to take pics of Jazwares' Halo toys at Toy Fair this weekend.

    I was just googling that Skeletor Spartan earlier today to see if it ever came out... Ugh, Mattel.

    Anyway. I want Elites. As many as they can, as fast as they can. Hopefully not too many in the 343 art style...

    Thanks for posting that!!

    I really can't wait for these guys.

    Although I do hope they go up on Amazon before release so I can switch to there since the individual shipping charges per figure from GameStop kinda sucks heh.

    Pixel Dan just did an interview with Wicked Cool and they talked about Halo briefly. Didn't realize this is the first time action figures will launch with one of the games! So this is being treated as kind of a big deal and I really hope it goes well for them.

    Ah I wasn't collecting proper then so didn't know that. You'd think the WCT guy would know that as well, but eh he's just hyping his product I guess lol.

    One of the designers has been pretty active on Reddit this past week, mostly because retailers started posting a whole lot of product and people started calling it "leaks" and he piped in to make clear no, they aren't leaks, these images should be out there lol. Because they are meant to release on October 1st. And if they hadn't started popping up apparently in other stores, he had been reassuring people they're meant for all retailers, to put those fears at rest. Just weird GameStop is the only one that did pre-orders... So if they take their time shipping out, hopefully come the 1st I'll just be able to order somewhere else and hopefully save on shipping instead of their split shipping they did lol.

    I’m wondering how they turned out. I’m tempted to pick up at least 1 to see for myself.

    Saw pegs ready for these at Walmart. I may get Chief just to sample them.

    I've seen them ready as early as during August. Question is, when will Canada receive them and how many per case?
