I don't care how nice the figures are otherwise, this shit is utterly unacceptable. Also the torso movement sucks.

What a disgrace that Halo has resorted to fucking Jazwares and some Pokemon company babby toy manufacturer. The fact that there STILL isn't a single high end good Halo figure is astonishing. The 3A shit was pure trash and we'll never get something like a Hot Toys license

Idk what you're talking about, Jazwares makes quality figures. The 6.5in figures have issues for sure, but the 4in ones are great.

>Another multipack with Chief

I don't understand why they keep throwing him in there. He's the only figure besides the Pilot that's absolutely useless for army building. Why not just include literally any other random spartan? It makes a good starter pack I guess. Anyone who still hasn't gotten any of the figures should probably snag it while they can.

Also, I just realized that the single marine figure is different from the one that comes in the 2-pack with the grunt. I might have to pick him up now.

Only the ThreeA Chief sucked, it was their first Halo figure and there were a number of "growing pains" issues. The rest got better and better with time, I'm really bummed they never finished Noble Team.
>>
>>8578664
You're replying to two different anons. Visual aesthetic is subjective. Personally, I think it looks better than any other MC figure that's been released.
The PAK was ok, but I hate the paintjob and it has a tiny torso. Also scale.
The McFarlane looks not too bad, but looks 'sticky' and the actual figures are bad.
The Jazzwares look like cheap children's toys. Cheap plasic, no shading. They look like $20 toys.
The 1000Toys though? Looks sleek and like a man in a suit ready to kill something. Plus, it's just a great figure to hold, play with and has amazing articulation.
>>
>>8577981
I really wanna like this figure, too, if only because he looks pretty great with the chrome visor and all. QC and weird choices in the figure design really let it down (why do the 4 inch figures have up down wrists, but the 6 inch have side to side? what's up with the ab articulation, what was that even trying to be? why are the weapons undersized/oversized in both lines?)
>>
>>8578712
I had the PAK Mk.V. It was actually pretty nice, it was the first really stylized Chief figure I can recall. Really action hero-y proportions, nice looking candy paintjob, and pretty good articulation, though the joints ratcheted too hard for my taste. The real downside was that after a while, the red one developed the "pink panties" fading issue that plagued early Hot Toys Iron Men.

So I got the 6.5 inch Chief and he came in the mail today - problem is his arm was broken in the package. I didn't realize it until taking him out, and with a little movement it snapped off the "joint" (which was really not a joint at all; while on the remaining arm it worked, the broken joint was totally sealed immovable). Is this normal? The joint can't even go in the way the packaging intends for it to. I'm not used to Amazon refunds, and this is my first toy from the line so I'm not sure if this issue was just for mine or across the line. Please help me.

Sure, how much you like how it looks is subjective. It's still *objectively* inaccurate in many ways. I think the silhouette isn't the least bit intimidating and I can't understand how you'd complain about the PAK having a "tiny" torso and then give the stomach/waist on this thing a pass.

If he sucked his gut in any harder, he'd collapse into a singularity.

So are we going to start seeing repacks before we get any figures we haven't seen? That's not too bad with the right combination of characters.

On a different note, with this line being pretty successful, we could see a lot cooler stuff at toyfair.
>>
>>8578743
Oh, that fading issue sucks anon.
I'm not a fan of PAK for a few reasons. I don't like the plastic they use on some figures, the ratcheting joints and the scale is wrong for me.
But some of the designs are superb and they're the only company that made a Briareos Hecantocheres from Appleseed.

It was always meant to be, it was even released under the RE:Edit label. This is not a legitimate complaint about the figure.
I don't remember seeing a single person complaining about Sentinel's Iron Man and Spidey RE:Edit lines "not being accurate" and trying to pass this off as a legitimate criticism.

Also, yes, the Best Chief's waist is small, but the torso is in proportion. Not the same thing.

As someone who only played the game socially at parties until 2008 and has only read the books, it's very easy for me to NOT EVEN pretend all chiefs are just generic space marines.

I don't remember any of the books saying that each Spartan wore their own individual favorite colors.

you're being dumb and might be autistic, because you don't understand that people like designs to be very specific.

There's a reason why people have been clamoring for Warhammer 40k Space Marines toys for decades, despite the fact that there's been quite a few generic space marine toys released in the past 30 years.

And there's been dozens of Halo knockoffs, where Haloguy himself looks like a knockoff space marine in light armor.

There's so many armored troopers out there that you can pretend that they're any of these generic armored space troopers because they're just as close looking to them as taht 1000toys figure.... for Halo, anyway.

Fix'd that for you.

Some people might say that wanting very specific designs is autistic.

Also, your comparison does not hold up. Best Mast Chief looks close enough to the actual design to pass for the non-autistic, especially since MC has gone through several different iterations.

Also, you're being dumb because no other MC figure comes even remotely close to the level of quality of Best MC.

>you're like those parents who get mad at their children for not accepting they cheap knockoff toy they bought at the corner drug store, because they didn't want to go across town to buy the real thing.
Bruh, the asthetics of the figure are entirely subjective. You may want something to be accurate to the source material but I may not. Not everyone has to have the same tastes as you.

>But seriously, people like the things that they buy to look like the actual thing.
Not everyone does. I happen to like stylized things if the asthetics work with the character. Just because YOU want something one way doesn't mean everyone does too. The anon you were talking to clearly enjoys the asthetics. See how people have different opinions? Why are you trying to be so authoritarian on something so entirely subjective?

Some guy wants to pretend no one likes the 1000toys version because of its price, but thats shitposter logic, especially when it looks like any halo wannabe or even the knockoffs that halo is knocking off.

The other anon posted 90%. Where are you getting these statistics from anon?
Did you hire an independent consulting company to do a thorough survey of all Halo fans who are also toy collectors to get the most accurate possible statistical analysis to back up your claims?

Or did you just read what the other three anons in Halo general have been bitching about and suddenly think that that must be the majority opinion?
You're wrong based on the fact that the 1000Toys Halo Master Chief sold so damn well. It was in high demand even after the original pre-orders were sold out; to the point where people were asking on boards where they could get one. Everywhere sold out. Shit, I had to get mine from an obscure Canadian retailer because I couldn't find it anywhere else.
Not one single - serious - figure reviewer complained about the inaccuracy of the likeness to the heavy-poly design of the first Halo.

Also, did you have a problem with the Anniversary edition of Combat Evolved, because, in case you didn't notice, THEY CHANGED HIS DESIGN from the first release! Gasp!

That can't be true. What delusion pills are you taking?

This is my first post here, but I couldn't help it. Day one when the toy was revealed the main "issue" was the original refinement of design. That is all personal taste of course, but was considered to be the negative rather than a positive.

My main reason for not getting it, the wrist joints/tiny ball pegs. They looked problematic and seem to be problematic. Harder to fix too, maybe. Pretty huge oversight for Sentinel team. That's why I went for the cheaper, low quality American toy that still looked game accurate. It's good enough.

>>8577981
Mine had similar problem but fixed it by thickening the peg with superglue.
>>
>>8580427
To clarify I mean the refinement design wasn't that good looking on top of being different.

My ass, but my ass sits firmly on the fact that people like for their shit to look like what it's from. Again, it's akin to people needing to buy brand name to a fault that they look out for signs of buying bootlegs that can be just as good as the real thing.
People simply like the real deal and not anything else.

Nevermind that the vast majority of the products that are sold are based on the real thing vs niche lines like the 1000toys or PAK versions. Literally millions of units sold vs mid-10ks.
Shit, even Mattel's line, which was so shitty, probably got a million units sold just because every major retailer carried it and it was still deemed a failure.

Hahahaha, ok anon, you win, enjoy your cheap-shit , break-out-of-the packaging burger toys.

They sell millions of units because Americans buy cheap-shit toys to customise; kids buy them (because no parent in their right mind buys their kids $100+ Japanese figures); you have to buy doubles because the first one breaks and because, well, they're cheap. In every sense.

Even if you can't do anything with them without heavily customising them and buying a second one in case the first breaks, but hey, at least they're accurate! Well, er, mostly.

the 4" figures get the job done fairly well and checks off all the boxes, and are just tons of fun overall.

They look great tho

you lucky bastard, scalpers cleaned out every store in my area carrying the figures, except for one store literally right next to me thats carrying halo figures for the first ever, and no one knows about bc the shelves are basically still full. unfortunately haven't carried any of the 6.5s yet and all i need is the chief rip. anywho, all of the 4" are really fun and get the job done in every aspect, 6.5s have good amount of qc problems and weird articulation design.

yo that blue/white mkvii is so fucking sick. good job man. and no new news yet. banished ghost w/ elite warlord and mongoose w/ chief started hitting shelves a couple of weeks ago but thats about it. no other new figures. I got the banished ghost set, and while the banished ghost is built fairly cheap and feels super hollow, it still doesnt look bad, which is more than enough for what is essentially a $10 figure. I really like the elite warlord, such a cool design.

Only the mk7 is really customized, the other is just panel lined with a gundam marker, and not even all the way lol.
The left marine is just all the bits off a black series lando figure. Had to thin the neck some for the head but it looks fine. The right marine is slightly more complicated, I used a Dremel to hollow out the left marines left over helmet. Then discovered a black series lukes head a separate hairpiece, pulled it off and the helmet fit perfectly on it. The chief in the back here is also panel lined. If you have a gundam panel lining marker fine tip black, id recommend doing it to the spartans so nice looking. I leave the white unfinished partially cause lazy and also as a good example of the stark difference

How are people removing the arms to get to the peg? Just yank em out or what?

I'm pretty impressed with how well those star wars heads work. And the panel lining really makes the details pop on the otherwise bland looking armor. I don't have a gundam marker but I might try it with this brush pen that I have, since it worked pretty well for touching up the nose on Chief's helmet.

mine were loose enough that i was able to pull them off without much force. After putting some tape on the peg they are in the socket pretty well now and the looseness is completely gone.

The articulation is infinitely better and they aren't coated from head to toe in inch-thick, sloppily applied lumpy paint. That alone puts them head and shoulders above McFarlane's shitty efforts. They aren't great, but McFarlane is literally bottom of the barrel.
I will agree they could do with a bit more paint but that's easy enough to do yourself. Good luck making the Maccy F's figures anything more than lumpy bricks.

I don't even think the Mattel Halo line is good. Just that it's better than the McFarlane junk. Unless a Japanese line invests fully in Halo, there won't be a good line for the series. Sorry you have to act like a ReTodd because your favourite company did a shit job, Subjectanon.

i bought it second hand, so i have no idea where it came from. Ive seen 3d printed magnum models before, but never anything near this quality. It looks like it was printed then sanded and painstakingly painted with metallic paints. even the grip is accurately textured somehow and idk how they did that. it basically looks real. even the magazine comes out and has accurately painted replica 50 cal ammo in it.

i compared it to in game models of the H3 pistol and its more or less 100% accurate in scale and mold. as far as i know as a custom piece, its the only one in existence that is this good. Im really pleased that its in 1:1 scale with the jazman plasma pistol.

I haven't found any of the 6.5" line yet but I saw people on other boards saying that if you flip the direction each shoulder faces (just rotate 180 degrees and then flip the arm around. No disassembling or anything), the resistance from the way it's shaped will hold the arms much sturdier and they won't flop around.
>>
>>8586973
You realise how big that Elite would have to be?

>>8587426
I want an elite as big as me who can be my friend

>>8586925
Damn that magnum sounds so cool. I have a 3d printer so i was thinking about printing out a magnum as well. I have some friends who are really into model painting so i can probably commission them to paint my magnum. Also have some gun friends who might be able to help me out stipple the grip. Maybe a project for the summer.
>>
>>8587170
works with some figures fairly well. on my 6.5 mark 7, flipping around the arm fixed the right one, but the left arm was still super loose. popped it off and put a thin piece of tape over the peg and fixed it right up.

It's a pretty boring and lazy design honestly. I'm considering painting it like a normal ghost, but then I'd have to sand off the banished bits. Plus they'll probably release a normal ghost eventually.

Man I need to find some grunts.
How is the orange Elite? I found the black one lackluster
>>
>>8589236
like him a lot more. super cool design and he has better articulation in his hips and in his not-robot-arm lmao. I recommend you get some grunts in the 2-pack that comes with a marine, or a 3-pack thats coming out soon that includes two grunts and the orange elite warlord i was talking about.
>>
>>8589236
Quite a bit better, see >>8582068

Also I definitely recommend the 2 pack with the marine and grunt. Grunt has really good articulation

Idk if everyone knew this already but the ghost can extend to accommodate different drivers. Probably part of the reason it's so hollow
>>
>>8589998
both the jazwares grunt and jackal easily have both the best articulation and posability out of any of their other iterations in the past.

Jazwares doesn't really really do restocking, it's mostly handled by distributors and most distribution centers take about a week or two.

Most Revoltechs as of late have been received pretty positively. It seems to be just a few vocal contrarian going against the grain. Figures like AY Harley and Deathstroke are considered to be some of the best figures if those respective characters.

MOST folks largely keep what they like in their own related generals. I rarely see people bring up other toy lines in the gunpla threads and I imagine it's largely the same elsewhere with the exception of comparing same character made by different companies like say figuarts discussing figma because they both made bruce lee or something.

Really the only time people bring something up outside of related generals is when they have an unnatural hate boner and have to bad mouth it every opportunity.

Major yikes to any Halo fan who did not pick up the 1000Toys Chief.

Major yikes at those hips and waist.

I probably would have but I have a personal rule to never spend more than 50 dollars on an action figure. Instead, I buy a bunch of smaller figures one at a time and convince myself that I'm spending less money.

Went and snapped the head off my Rtas Vadumee figure didnt i :(

So i tried to set the ball joint again with brass rod. The ball joint connecting bar width is just over 4mm, i used 2.5mm brass rod to set it, leaving 0.75mm of plastic encasing the rod, the length of the broken off ball was 6.8mm so i drilled out 2.4mm (0.1mm tighter on the diameter than the brass rod, to make it a real snug fit and account for handheld drilling inaccuracy) x 6.5mm on each end with the pin vise, then set the brass rod of length exactly 13mm with superglue between them, i scuffed up the rod good too so the superglue grabs it better. This was all basically the largest rod i could use while still leaving enough plastic for there to still be a ball joint structure to speak of at the end.

What do you think? Ive never done this fix before. It seemed to turn out well, the joint seems pretty much an exactly snug fit to me, and its probably stronger now than it was before it got broken, i reckon.

Btw the plastic of this particular ball joint on this figure is hard plastic, not vinyl. I guess i was expecting vinyl, so i managed to snap it while trying to unstick it.
>>
>>8596587
This is a terrible way to think

Well i fixed it now good as new.

Was just being lazy and trying to unstick joints without heating up some water first.

At least it gave me an excuse to try out my pin vise kit, it went so well that i feel better about fixing the Dutch with his leg twisted off that ive got.

That place is a cesspool, largely due to one or two obnoxious and really persistent shitposters with a hateboner for anything that isn't an ML.

>implying that those photos in OP aren't used as bait, since the Marvel General threads ended with trolls akin to posters in this thread trolling with the 1000toys Master Chief
uh huh

>>8596949
When there's a general like for the toys, they're not ignored. Stuff like Mafex Gwenpool got a lot of positive posts until trolls started up. Same with the Spiderman and Carnage.
There was also a lot of positivity with Figma Iron Man and some of the Figuarts.
Nevermind people also like some of the Diamond and Mezco figures.

So you're ignoring a lot of times when people have expressed interest and like for expensive figures.
People just focus on what they like though. Has nothing to do with poorfagging.
>>
>>8596744
Doesn't matter if the so-called greater figure can't even look the way you want it to.
>>
This figure is dope, but calling it one of the best figures ever may have been hasty.
His hands don’t stay attached for shit and he’s getting that weird problem I have with some Bandai figures where their joints start freezing up. I noticed new figuarts have grease on their ball joints to prevent this.

articulation is great but he looks like hes wearing a fuckin corset there

If you truly wanted pure quality you'd just be buying no-fun Hot Toys and leaving them on a shelf. every purchase involves some compromise. I'd rather not shove $100+ figures into my mouth that I'm not entirely happy with.

>>8597915

with figures like halo, sometimes quantity is equally as important in order to army build and stage battles. Way better than having 1 overpriced jap figure standing by itself on a dusty shelf.

Agreed. I think expensive high-quality figures are nice, but I also appreciate more affordable toys that you can buy in a store (as long as they aren't shit quality). A $200 figure may be "better" than a $10 one, but that doesn't make the cheaper one bad. And this is /toy/ after all, you can't complain when people talk about toys and not adult collectibles.

if you wanna know more about this mecha assault 3 pre-order edition robot its a full on converting mech it turns into a 1999 pontiac firbird in salmon yellow and his adult name is upstream, his blaster there on his arm is called tamiya extra thin cement and samus from doom is totally kicking yellowmans ass from megaman i loved collecting halo related xbox 360 toys like spiderman from ps4 or jazz from mass effect andromeda

just jumping into this thread. Its a bad compromise. It doesnt look organic enough to look like a guy in armor, but it doesnt look mechanical enough to look like a cool mech take on master chief. It just is a weird half assed inbetween thing that doesnt really appeal to anyone.
>>
>>8578941
looks better from this angle imo, but mainly because it obscures the robot joints. The arms imo are the biggest problem and look like Gunpla parts. The fact it looks so muc hbetter from this angle solidifies it for me that the problem is just mismatching of how parts look. Comes off like a mess from the front.

No, that's only if your definition of 'quality' is 'looks like the actor'.

For me quality is material that feels good to the touch; smooth joints; heaps of articulation; toys that don't break easily (especially not straight out of the package); great-looking, detailed accessories; good sculpt and paintjob and don't look like cheap toys.
90% of my figures meet all these criteria.
>>
>>8599308
...except for the fact that it appeals to a great many people, myself included. It really does look like a guy in armour when you see it in person. The proportions are right and their is a distinct difference between each armour plate. A lot of the cheaper MC figures (not all of them) literally look like sculpted hunks of plastic.

Bros...... after 2 months of hard searching and almost giving into scalpers, I found them.... I FOUND CHIEF. If you have been having trouble finding literally ANY of the figures and you live in Texas, go to your local HEB immediately. There's been a ton of 3.75s barely anyone has been buying in the seasonal isle for a month or so now, so I've been stalking that idle since then bc I like 2 min away from an heb. Today, when going to check if they ever finally stocked up on the 6.5s, I saw a family buying their kids toys. I decided to walk into the actual toy isle next to it to wait bc I didn't want to barge between them all and autistically start digging through all the shelves, so I decided to wait there. Looking at all the shitty dollar toys where, I glance up to the very top shelf and spot all of the 6.5s just sitting there.... there were 3 chiefs, and one of each of the other figures. Who fucking knows how long they have been sitting there and NO ONE has touched them. I'm fairly certain I was the first person to stumble across them. Even a FEW 3.75s were bought, but these hadn't been touched. I chose the best looking chief and was about to leave, but the white mark vb just looked too damn good in person and I couldn't resist. Still won't buy Kat tho bc I don't feel like collecting all of noble team again as I already have all the mcfarlanes. It is a good day after a shitty weekend bros.

I'm happy for you anon, I hit up a local Target for MLs yesterday and they had the whole wave EXCEPT Chief. I was so bummed. Hopefully Gamestop doesn't push it back again and I can finally get him.

Ik that feeling man. Back in early October I was able to hit up this one target across town and they had literally every figure in the back EXCEPT the 6.5 chief. The figures were even still in the shipping boxes when I asked an employee to pull
some couple out for me. From what I can tell there are usually 3 chief figures to a case of the 6.5s as that was the ration when I stumbled across them today. Scalpers tend to mainly target him unfortunately.

I agree, and I'm not pretending they're flawed, did you not read where I said
>Even more so after reading all these first-hand accounts of people having their other Halo toys literally breaking apart on them.
I fully acknowledge that the Halo toys are flawed, and it's ok for people to like them. It's also perfectly ok for people to like the almost-flawless 1000Toys Master Chief.
But no toy is perfect, even the 1000Toys MC could do with better wrist pegs.

Be careful with his shoulder armor - mine snapped pretty quickly and I ended up returning him.

depending on what you get that could actually be a better choice. really is based on what you choose.
>>
>>8601787
You mean like a person wearing armour? Yes, that's what I've been saying all along!
>>
>>8596744
depends, I cut my collection down massively and ended up keeping just a few collections, in the end i got rid of the more expensive stuff and ended up keeping some of the cheaper things. 20 dollar per figure stuff.

They dont look as impressive but to me they are more fun to fiddle with and display, just ended up that way through a coincidence. didnt realize it until i realized i had gotten rid of 70 dollar ones because i just didnt find them as fun to mess around with. i think i chose nostalgia over quality but i dont really care.

sorry for the blog post just saying sometimes people can go in a circle weirdly and go from cheap to expensive import to cheap again.

is it possible to scale warhammer up using halo figures?
>>
>>8599624
every figure is going to appeal to someone i dont doubt that YOU like it or that there are PEOPLE who like it. But what i doubt is that this has as much appeal as it would have if it had just gotten its shit together and picked one direction and stuck with it. I have seen way too many people complaining about it to believe that the majority public opinion is positive about it. This is like a movie with good critical reception (good paint high POA etc) and bad fan reception (poor likeness) that has a cult following.
>>
>>8600909
how much are they charging in stores versus scalpers? Im not really innterested in these but am surprised to hear how much trouble anons are having finding them. im only in here because halo.
>>
>>8601794
youre purposelly conflating different things.
In most angles it doesnt look like a person because of the fucked up shoulder joints, which are inexcusable. Combined with the bizarre looking arms which look gundam parts.

In angles when that stuff is obscured, and it looks more like an outfit with a dude in it, it looks so far off model that it looks like a costume a fan made and put together.

If you like the figure good im happy that you do, but I think it has a lot of flaws to it. It honestly sort of looks like a well painted gunpla model kit to me of a chief inspired non cannon design.
>>
>>8601814
btw i not trying to convince you not to like what you bought the last thing i want to do is make someone feel bad about something they bought and enjoy. so i apologize if it comes off that way. Some of what i wrote is too harsh and i was being too aggressive.

But I really think that before they released this they should have tweaked some stuff. Because the quality of the figure itself seems high in the sense that the visor and paint and sculpt are sharp and look high quality. A line like this is something I would have been interested in buying if it was tweaked a bit.
>>
>>8601807
they retail $20, scalpers usually sell around $30-$35. Every walmart/target i go to is completely cleaned of them. Was only able to finally track these down bc HEB is a grocery store that usually only had shitty dollar store toys, but now they are starting to carry good shit like this and people havent been catching on.
>>
>>8601786
yeah i was testing his range of motion and noticed his shoulders were flexing in a way that made me uncomfortable. Is it something you could have easily repaired or did you just not care to try and wanted to get your money back instead?
>>
>>8601805
>if it had just gotten its shit together and picked one direction and stuck with it
But it did though, it is a Re:edit, it was always supposed to be an artistic interpretation of the character. It never veered from that direction.

>I have seen way too many people complaining about it to believe that the majority public opinion is positive about it
Baader-Meinhof effect mate.
>>
>>8601835
well i guess the good news is they are sellling though right? I hear people say no one cares about figures anymore and this hopefully proves that wrong.

is it worth 20.00? Idk if i like any of the figures enough to buy them or not.
>>
>>8600921
forgot to update about white mark vb. overall in pretty good condition as well and doesnt have much QC errors at all other than his left arm being a tiny bit loose but nothing thats deal breakng. Also just hate how these figures didn't come with a standard gripping hand so they could properly hold their rifles. have them gripping it like an olympic shooter baka
>>
>>8601814
>fucked up shoulder joints
lolwut? What's wrong with the shoulder joints?
>bizarre looking arms
>gundam parts; painted gunpla model kit
This is all subjective opinion
>but I think it has a lot of flaws to it
>I think
Ah. Yes.

I totally get that you don't want it because it doesn't look exactly like the original model. That's totally fine. I honestly don't have an issue with that or your disliking it.

It's the anons who are saying that it's a shit toy that's inferior to the blocky plastic $20 figures (that multiple people are complaining about falling apart and breaking in this very thread) -because- it doesn't look like the original model that I have an issue with. Because it's a fantastic toy.
And no, it's not an exact design or colour copy of the Master Chief design from Combat Evolved. But it was also never meant to be.

Mmmm chicken wings..... would also be perfect if they fit elbow rotation into the next figures somehow. Honestly would prefer that rather than a double jointed elbow, like w the 3.75s
>>
>>8601863
because at that point its barely even halo. I would take a figure that actually looks like a design from the games rather than an expensive jap figure that looks like gundam anime shit. Also, these cheaper figures actually have variety and once you have a couple you can do a lot more with them.
>>
>>8601863
i get what you mean anon, i dont like the figure but i do like your personality and attitude. youre pleasant to talk with.

I really dont have one glaring issue with it that is a dealbreaker, for me it is just a bunch of small things that add up at a point.

I dont really care if its 100% accurate, I can settle for 90% or so, maybe less, but that thing seems closer to like, 75% or something. Which alone isnt a huge deal really. i have halo megabloks and some way weirder halo stuff. But I think the shoulder looks a little strange. I just think they could have been filled in a bit somehow and its distracting to me. The shoulders arent a huge deal either. But i think that the top comes off a bit more mechanical, and the bottom a bit more organic. so it also conveys a sort of mismatch of aesthetics to me i also get a little bothered with.

None of them alone are so glaring they are a deal breaker. Just personally for me, they add up to a point where i dont want the figure. But It still is interesting to look at.
>>
>>8601877
you know it would be kind of cool if they did a masterchief gundam thing all things considered. I wouldnt have asked for it before this thread because it seems like a dumb idea but i think this figure is a proof of concept that it could work.
>>
>>8601914
that would be pretty chill, but idk its kind of stupid to compare these figures because it really is apples and oranges
>>
Hey what the fuck happened to the Halo Mega Bloks sets? I hadn't looked at them for a few years but holy shit are they atrocious. They look smaller and cheaper, none of the sets are interesting at all and all effort is out the window. Fuck 343 and fuck their designs

>>8601877
Yeah, um...no. It doesn't even remotely resemble a gundam, you're really reaching here. It resembles the Master Chief significantly more than any gundam. It also doesn't look remotely anime, that's also a reach (no pun intended).
>these cheaper figures actually have variety and once you have a couple you can do a lot more with them.
Is your complaint here that there's only one in the line?
>>
>>8601912
It's nice to talk to someone reasonable for a change. Thanks for explaining what you didn't like.
The biggest differences I can see are the curves (CE MC is totally blocky); the helmet (it's narrower); the back armour that comes up higher on either side of the helmet.
When you talk about the shoulders, is it that they look a little like large balls maybe?

I get what you're saying though and that's cool. For me it's more the great engineering trumps everything else. I love that I can put him in any pose I want and that the armour hinges and moves easily out of the way. He also feels nice to hold and move around and a like the sleeker aesthetic. He also scales well too, which can be a deal-breaker for me because I mix lines.
>>
>>8602005
FUCK YOU
>>
>>8602183
It definitely does not resemble gundam but as someone who likes the design gonna disagree with you on the anime part. It DEFINITELY has anime design style going on. It feels like what would have happened if they made an anime of halo if there was no reference material at all besides the first polygonal game to design the anime armor.

ey that weapon looks pretty decently detailed.

you need to hot water and straighten it out a bit though bud

>>8597486
Anon, say something instead of acting like a silent autismo fuck. How is that figure proportionally flawed? Is he just not like the buff chief you so lust over or something?

Finally, after months of searching, waiting, and hoping that Gamestop would finally come through with my order. After getting yet ANOTHER delay on my GS order and I was losing hope of ever finding him, I found him. On a grocery run to Target, so I could make myself a sandwich for lunch tomorrow, I venture to the toy section as my final stop, as per usual and see they restocked. I searched through the peg to no avail, only red white and blue were on hung to see. Dejected, I did one final scan only to discover a lone Chief laying on the middle shelf all on his own. Elated I grabbed my prize, paid for my wares and returned home to bask in my glorious bounty.

Nonsense story aside, I gotta say he feels a lot better than the white Mark V SPARTAN that I got a while back. That one was loose in the shoulders and honestly just kinda felt cheap. Chief though feels sturdy, has tight joints all around, and just feels like a better toy. They're the only two I've gotten so far but it almost feels like they're from different lines. It's weird.

Anyway super happy to finally have him, fuck you Gamestop. You don't get my money.

They can't, because they have nothing intelligent or factual to say except "I can't afford this $100 figure so it must be bad".

damn good score anon. Would love to buy myself one and then repaint it but I dont feel like dropping $50 on it rn.

I may paint one day but I'm no artist. But it does seem almost shockingly simple. Black and dark gray. Id assume id disassemble and paint each part.

Yeah me too lol ive never repainted any figures before, but it seems like a very fun hobby to get into that ties in with my toy addiction lmao
