    SC Arby and Johnson are definite buys.

    Oh hell yeah, 4” and 6” Arby, Johnson, and Jerome!! And Noble Six! Can’t wait. Hope the QC on these figures keep improving. I was incredibly disappointed and underwhelmed with my SC series one Chief that was a loose mess. My WOH 4” Chief is awesome though; all they need to improve those ones is more elbow articulation

    Glad to hear about the new additions to the line. I haven’t been impressed with any of the figures yet, but I keep buying all the new releases. In the past week I’ve grabbed the mantis, gun goose, and the new figure 3-pack from target.

    Saw the Mantis and Gungoose at Target today but didn’t bite. Higher wants this month in GIJoe, TF, and MOTU. I still need to get the Mongoose from wave 1 when I get a chance.

    Just found SC wave 3 at Target. Picked up the only Palmer and Noble Six. Almost didn't get Six.. in part because he's apparently original Six, no player-Six (which I guess technically could be any of the unnamed armors lol), but also because his helmet was really weirdly light grey unlike the rest of his dark grey armor. Picture on the back shows dark grey too. But then I found some on ebay to confirm and they're all light... Weird.

    Quick question :
    I just started a bit late, is the Shade Turret new or am I gonna have to go to EBay for that?

    Also hoping I’ll be able to find the red armor Brute.


    Found these on Twitter

    I am so STOKED for the wave 3 Spartan collection.


    Thank you all for the leaks too!

    thanks!

    I think things like the weapons pack and shade turret are new. I saw the 3 pack at target the other day. I’m just gonna get the separate releases of the brutes. I really want the elite merc and jackals.

    The shade turret is fairly new, so you see restocks of it in the coming months.

    I wish these figures were more widely available online. I’ve managed to find the gun goose, mantis and the three pack. No sign of the shade turret or the new 6” figures at any of the 5 Targets in my area.

    I completely agree :/ Would make collecting them less stressful.

    My Max bid was 20$ + 10$ dollars in shipping, but still won it for 3.47$ I don't think there is a HUGE demand for these things but the only resellers on eBay are trying to get double what they paid for.

    If any of you are in Canada and would be willing to let me pay you for shipping and the figure, Toysrus.ca has this guy for around 20ish Canadian.


    I would like to get this guy but paying 20+ for a figure that should only cost 10$ hurts haha, Screen Shot 2021-09-15 at 10.43.13 AM.png

    That's my problem with all Jazwares stuff.. Pokemon is damn near impossible to find; locally they haven't restocked anything in many months. And they're just... mostly not online, just 3rd parties selling way above MSRP.

    I know with wave 2 of the 6" figures, they eventually showed up on gamestop.com well after they were showing up in stores in Targets. So maybe that'll hold true with wave 3.

    Found one at Target...after buying one off eBay because I thought this came out in an earlier wave. RIP.

    Ebay:
    I hunted for the Mantis and finally found one. I really like the design, but frankly, I am not happy with the toy. I am returning it. I made a review in case it could save people the trouble of tracking one down.

    I think his presence outweighs issues, very poor stability and little articulation....but he's only 40$ so I am happy to overlook.

    This series has hit my country! I’m stunned as previous iterations from other companies were never released at retail!

    If I see Master Chief, I’m getting him! I really hope we get more of the aliens in the 6 inch scale…

    Tbh I’m torn between this line and McFarlane’s Warhammer 40k…I enjoy the story and design of both these franchises.

    Good news, Wave four of the Spartan Collection should have at least the Arbiter.

    Wow! Thanks for the news! I hope we get elites and brutes in the 6 inch line!
