Halo Figures Fan Favourites Revealed
Halo Figures Series 8 Release Date: June 2010
Based on the popular Halo video game universe, this assortment included characters from the Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo Wars video games and unlike previous releases this series was unique in that McFarlane based the figures off of fan requests.
Campaign Halo Figures
Master Chief Halo Figures (Halo 2): This all-new version of the legendary Master Chief shows him as he appeared in Halo 2. Figure features the Chief in his new Mark VI armor, dual-wielding a pair of Brute Plasma Rifles -- all features that made their debut in Halo 2.
ODST: Buck: The squad leader of Halo 3: ODST, Buck comes with an Assault Rifle and features a McFarlane ODST figure first -- a removable helmet. This figure was an updated mold of the Rookie's body as a result of complaints about parts falling off, etc but there was still no weapon storage available, and the paint job actually was poor and he didn't really resemble his counterpart in the game.
Brute Captain in VISR mode: The darkened streets of New Mombasa are perfect for a Brute ambush, but the ODSTs have a secret weapon: VISR mode! This low-light amplification system outlines friendly units in green and enemy units in red. Figure comes with Brute Plasma Rifle and Spike Grenade, and features glow-in-the-dark paint.
UNSC Marine: The backbone of the UNSC military, the Marine is ready to join the ranks of your action figure force. Figure comes with UNSC Battle Rifle.
Arbiter Ripa 'Moramee: Set before the Covenant Civil War, Halo Wars showed the alien Elites as a fierce enemy of mankind -- and no Elite was more feared than the Arbiter, Ripa 'Moramee. This all-new figure comes with dual Plasma Swords. This figure had a few problems with it, firstly as it was taller than most of the Elite figures the mold made him difficult to pose, also his energy swords were hard to remove, even more so than the Arbiter figure from Series 2. They are also block colored a deep purple, instead of the traditional white fading into blue.
ONI Operative Dare (no helmet): This new version of Captain Veronica Dare features the secretive ONI Operative as she appeared throughout the events of Halo 3: ODST -- without her distinctive Recon helmet. Figure comes with Suppressed SMG and Silenced Magnum, and will only be sold at GameStop stores
Multiplayer Halo Figures
Elite Ascetic (silver): Our first multiplayer Elite figure in Ascetic armor comes with dual Brute Spike Rifles and a paint scheme that complements the Elite Assault figure from Series 5.
Spartan EOD (white): Multiplayer Spartan figure comes with "Explosive Ordnance Disposal" armor and dual SMGs. This Halo 3 figure will be available in a variety of specialty stores.
Spartan Mark IV (black): This Halo Wars Spartan features the early Mark IV armor in multiplayer-only black. Figure comes with dual SMGs and can be found at Target stores nationwide.
Elite Combat (orange): Orange Elite figure comes with Combat armor and dual Spike Rifles. This exclusive will be available in Toys "R" Us stores in the US and Canada.
