Series 3 WoH multi-packs and Spartan Collection figures hitting Target Shelves. No Sighting of the single WoH figures just yet.
>>9264387how much has toys spoiled infinite so far btw?
>>9264531Lol a lot a lot. For a good year or so most of the info/leaks we got about infinite during the content drought was legit from toys like the megaconstrux figures n such.
>>9264387Where'd you find the shade?
>>9264644Not him, but I've seen it at target. Didn't buy it myself as it doesn't really interest me.
>>9264644basically what >>9264690 said. Found the gungoose the other day just didn't have time to open it and play with it yet. Went to target on a whim since it was just across the street from the academy I was at and they had both the shade and gungoose in stock. Still no series 3 6.5s or the single WoH figs. Pretty easy to find a mantis now since the initial frenzy to get them is over and ur average buyer isn't gonna fork over $40 for one
Someone in a previous thread was curious about scale between marines and spartans of the Joyride figures. I dug some out and took a picture.
>>9265216Wow chief is barely taller than him, I wonder if that's how they scaled in the game. Beautiful figs, anon. Jelly of ur marine and odst. Got any halo ce elites to compare w arby?
>>9265284Well I haven't packed everything away yet so I did another with some more variety. I was never a fan of the CE Elite since hes perpetually hunched over. The Halo 2 Elite figures are wonderful,though. I need to pick up the Ranger or shell out for the exclusive white one one day. I've always preferred the Joyride figures, they have a lot of playability and soul.
>>9265333Hmm even tho the ce elite is hunched over the 2 elite is still much bigger overall.God the joyrides just overflow with absolute soul, I need to get me more, they're just so damn expensive and I'd rather waste my extra money collecting the new figures coming out and buying guns lol. Unfortunately don't have any covenant joyrides other than a few arbys. Always absolutely loved the ce grunt figure. Their smaller scale figures were also so damn fun. I was a little kid when the joyrides came out and my parents only got me one and said that was all I was getting lol rip. Got the arbiter w heretic banshee, eventually lost the arbiter like the dumbass thst I was. Got a mint figure like 15 years later for $35.
Can't wait to play as her....On a serious note since infinite releases on December 8, I expect expect releases to ramp up like a mf around that time, series 4 is already looking hyper kino, imagine the shit we are gonna get with series 5.
>>9267488Honestly series 4 sounds fantastic cause it's doing a bunch of old shit though, I really hope they keep with that and give us like the odst crew and the like instead of shifting towards entire waves of infinite figures towards the games launch. I hope they keep it to like 1 or 2 infinite items per wave and the rest legacy stuff.
>>9265216Man, I'm still annoyed I found the Joyride ODST once back when I was a kid, didn't have the money at the time so passed on it, and then when I came back a few days later WITH the money it was gone.
>>9267522Yeah it's pretty fucking great how we're finally getting legacy stuff w WoH, I'm sure as infinite gets closer tho that at least half will prob stay infinite but if we at least get a couple of really good legacy figs I'll be happy
>>9267563I have a good couple stories like that...
Has the manager, or who ever it was, said anything about the lack of chrome visors on this new wave?
>>9270543>9270543I expect we'll be getting a lot of legacy stuff closer to Halo's anniversary date
>>9270555Yeah when the first promo pics released a lot of people were pointing out the lack of Chrome visors and he assured that it would be fixed. I assume the subsequent batches will address the issue >>9270580Oh yeah maybe that's why series 4 has a bunch of legacy stuff, it'll prob come out by then
I like this picture, it is very Halo
Has anyone dealt with Jazwares's customer support before? I've just bought a 6 inch white spartan mkv b but it had very loose arm joints out of the box. Was wondering if they send out replacements.
>>9274113did you try using pledge to tighten the joint? or do you think it's caused by a molding error?
>>9274113Yeah I've hit them up before and they've sent me a full-on replacement figure.
>>9274113U can actually pretty easily fix that by turning the peg where it attaches by 180 degrees. If that doesn't work then yeah I would hit them up for a new fig
Is there anyway to get these in the UK apart from ebay rape?
>>9276721Everywhere outside the US is pretty much fucked. Either you swallow the import costs or go without.
>>9274113Just got a reply from Jazwares. They're gonna send me a whole upper torso instead of a new figure, better than nothing I guess. Meanwhile I've temporarily tightened the joints with clear nail polish on them as I couldn't find any Pledge.
Here's a better look of that 2-pack with all those guns. https://www.ozziecollectables.com/products/halo-mission-pack-4-figures-and-accessories-assortment
>>9278474Wonder if you can remove the tripod and use it like Jorgen
I've been trying to come up with idea for pictures, but I've become stuck. What would you say the tone of Halo franchise is? The main games are relatively light-hearted, but everything else seems to borderline on grimdark.
>>9278536I would say yeah the original trilogy + ODST never took itself too seriously and was based heavily on sci-fi movies from the 80s like Alien n such. Reach was a big tonal shift and tried to become much more dark. Halo 4 tried to be more serious like a drama but i wouldn't say it was very dark. Halo 5 was like super hero marvel shit lol. We'll have to see with infinite. Other media definitely is more dark/serious, but let's be honest most people focus on the games. I would say the OG tone had the most soul and what Halo was most known for, so thats what I would go for.
>>9278474Those weapon crates and such look so fucking cute I need this lmao. Why tf does this gay site have it listed for like $300 lmao >>9278481Would be a big disappointment if not
>>9278574>I would say yeah the original trilogy + ODST never took itself too seriously and was based heavily on sci-fi movies from the 80s like Alien n such.I can understand the original trilogy, but ODST? That game is also a departure in tone; it’s slow and somber, the city is in dead and all that’s left are audio logs and bloodstains.
>>9278750I'm saying this more based off of how the characters interact with each other, alpha nine isnt a bunch of super srs super tactical operators, they are pretty damn goofy at times.
>>927875I would argue that the parts you play as the rookie have the serious, somber feeling, but everything else is pretty lighthearted. The cast is literally a bunch of goofy scifi actors thrown together for shits and giggles, and they're constantly making cheesy one liners or jokes and just generally being goofy.
>>9278481The tripod and gun are separated already in the packed shot, so it's definitely removable. The real question is how naturally can we get characters to hold it.
>>9279038Using weapons of similar style they hold it pretty decent
>>9279407what guns are those?
We hit the fucking jackpot tonight boys
>>9280909Went to my target after getting off of work this morning, found they had a few series 3 6.5s in stock. Chief and that ugly orange mark vb spartan. I was tempted to get Chief but I calmed myself down bc the visors are indeed not chromed out. Gonna wait until they are fixed in later batches.
>>9280913Went to different target this evening to hang out with a friend and look for some toys and they were fucking stocked. They had all the single series 3 3.75s in stock, the three packs, both the mongoose and shade, the mantis, and a few series 3 6.5s. I already had gotten the 3 pack so I didn't pick up hyperius and I already had the vehicles too so I left them alone. The 6.5s they had was palmer and the orange mark vb. Didn't see noble 6 at either store. Really really wanted to get palmer but once again her visor isn't chromed so I'm gonna hold off until it gets fixed. Her face really isn't too bad, actually worth putting on ur figure every now and then, but the 343 scout helmet is too kino ngl.
>>9280918So the series 3 6.5s and single 3.75s have officially began to hit target shelves. Good hunting everyone! Only figures I have yet to see are the two packs and that one big equipment pack that I really want lol >>9278474
>>9280909Damn, jealous as hell anon. All mine had was the Gungoose but I'm glad I got the chance to snag it.
>>9280909How's the new elite? They all look good, but that's the one I'm really interested in.
>>9280273Marine's holding the SW TVC Republic Trooper gun and the other is some random Clone trooper mini gun
>>9281512Tbh, he's almost exactly the same as the previous elites. His neck did receive the same upgrade as all the other figures did with the series 2 figures, in which the peg is now attached to the neck and inserts into the head, as opposed to vice versa with the previous 2 elites. This makes it so whenever you try to move his head around now, it doesn't immediately fall off which is great. Unfortunately he can't really look left or right at all, just rotate his head around on the peg. I wish they could implement a double ball beg solution instead for better rom. His leg armor does interfere a bit with his articulation, so that he doesn't have as much rom abducting or raising his legs. He does look absolutely fucking kino and easily is my new favorite looking elite.
>>9281814Here is chief with his update paint scheme along with the updated commando. As u can see he also has a little grapplehook on his wrist now. And speaking of the grapplehook....
>>9281828It actually fucking shoots out which is so damn cute lmao. I assume the 6.5 version of this is just scaled up and has an attached rope, I wonder if that one can actually support Chief's weight and u can hang him somewhere lol
>>9281834Shit, that's adorable. I might need to get this Chief after all.
Anybody with a Noble 6 know if the visor can be removed or if it's molded in? I want to swap out the gold chrome visor from the series 2 Mk V figure and put it into the Six helmet, so I can use his textured one to paint black and use for a custom because I like the texture.
>>9282526It can be removed, you just might need to use some heat.
>>9282527Yeah I've gotten them out before, just wanted to know if they changed the process.Thanks
Quality control on the mantis FUCKING SUCKS. Bought one, the legs were put on at a weird angle and the figure wouldn't support it's own weight. Bought another one, and the new one didn't have the belt on the machine gun arm. Had to combine the working leg on the new one (which had a piece I had to hot glue back on) with the proper head from the old one. Why is Jazware so shit?
>>9265216>that halo 1 marine and chiefHoly shit that's beautiful. Sauce?
Wasn't gonna get the EOD spartan at first bc im not a big fan of the yellow color, but ngl the black and yellow goes kinda hard.
>>9282879Those are the old Joyride Studios figures from the early 2000s. They're something like collectors items now so they go for quite a bit of money on ebay. If you want to get one, I'd recommend one of the Halo 2 Spartans. They're nicely poseable and usually come with a few different guns.
My area hasn't had any halo figs since January :(
>>9283338Damn where are you at? Are you outside of the US bc then that explains that unfortunately lol.
>>9283367I'm in the states. My Walmarts and targets never restock their toys among other things anymore. And all I find online is just wave one chief,kat, red spartan. I just wanted to get a full noble team from the spartan collection and focus on the woh figs
What're the new figs that're releasing?
How different is the new chief mold for series 3 of the 6 inch line, I can tell it looks different in some places. But I haven't been fortunate enough to find one yet to see for myself
343 halo 3 armor when?
>>9284555I took a pic of them side by side when I found them at target together bc I also coulda sworn the new chief looked different sculpt wise, and of course the series 3 figure has the new neck, but it also looks like his shoulders are different, seems like they are inserted lower on his torso now or something.
>>9284607God I fucking despise 343 when they do shit like this. Of course all the reddit trannies will always defend them and enable this BS.
>>9284607>>9284681I’m a 343 apologist and even I can’t defend that. I generally liked 343’s style from four and five, not liking some of the more out there armors. That thing is just TOO complex for no reason. It just looks stupid and serves no purpose.
>>9284681>>9284789That's just the tip of the iceberg lmaoHalo is fortnite now
>>9284858>>9284789>>9284681Take it to /vg/
>>9284607Halo is the last thing id say this was from.
>>9284878We’re in a Halo thread and we’re talking about the source material.
>>9284607I fucking hate 343 so god damn muchTurning everything into a destiny clone when destiny wasn't even good
>>9284973Destiny has some good armors. I’m not a fan of the rampant asymmetry.
>>9284858I had not seen this, I wish I had never did.
>>9285049>>9284858The two on the left don't even have visors. I would understand if Halo was science-fantasy, like 40K, Star Wars, or Destiny, but Halo is supposed to lean more towards realism on the sci-fi spectrum; like the Starship Troopers and Killzone.
>>9284990I can't tell from your nokia potato ass pictures anon what the fuck
>>9284664What happened to the fucking shiny visors? lmao, why cant we just have nice things.
>>9285063Realism isn't exciting, its why gamers enjoy capeshit so much.
>>9285886They should return with later batches, but some of the decisions WCT makes is just so weird and shit people never asked for sometimes. Like with the 3.75s wrists now flexing and extending like the 6.5s rather than adducting/abducting like they did in series 1. That was literally a complaint about the 6.5s when they released.
>>9285895ill fuckin believe it when i see it dude.i feel gypped as hell buying into the 6 inch line at all when theyre gonna make such drastic aesthetic downgrades to save money now that they think collectors are hooked. I mean lets be honest, the jazwares stuff very is plasticy and toyish as it is, but we looked past that because of the nice touches like very decent sculpts and good articulation (eventually) and the SHINY VISORS THAT WE HAVENT SEEN SINCE JOYRIDE LINES 20 YEARS AGO. Come on man.id rather just sell out of what ive got from them and buy more old mcfarlane/joyride etc stuff instead if theyre gonna go this route. I know theyve had a hard time with scheduling for this licence givent he actual game was delayed an entire year after they released wave 1, but they should still do right by their own customers. I hope someone from jazwares is reading this, or at least something like it. You have to do right by your customers, or you wont have any left.
>>9285600PS3 doesn’t have a screenshot function.
>>9285948It's what the brand manager said and I have faith in him as his promises haven't gone unkept so far. Hopefully we see the fixes within the next month or so when new batches come out. Considering this was an issue that he said was gonna be addressed before the series even released hopefully means it will come fairly quick.
>>9285958>PS3NiggaGet the fuck out of 2012Come join the rest of society
>>9286657No, I don’t like Nintendo, and all three of the console companies charge for online. It’s free on PS3 and PC. Maybe that’s why I don’t really mind 343’s artstyle in four, I’ve only ever played the campaign.
>>9286657Not him, and that picture he took does look like some 00s nokia shit, but I've all but given up on gaming thanks to companies charging for online play.fuck em.
Is this considered a toy
>>9286667Get a PC then lol
>>9287103My Laptop just broke, actually.
>>9287174Build progamer pc, u can get halo on it now and that's all that matters
>>9287502I don’t want a PC, I want a laptop. I can take it with me AND play video games, and I can use it to edit images i post here.
Can we get some more based Joyrides in this thread plz lol. Show them off, anons.
The 6 inch toy line is fucking dead anons. Walmart is getting in new cases of WAVE ONE. No series 2, no series 3, just the original batches of figures. Fucking unreal
>>9289535That's them putting out old stock to replace empty shelves probably.I've seen it happen with stuff like Transformers before, it's not that uncommon.
>>9289535Not my pic but Cali Walmart are starting to get series 3
>>9289582What the shit is noble 6's visor black or something?
Only figures you can find on ebay are so unfairly over retail that it's just unreal, combine a $15-$20 overhead with disgusting shipping costs. No thanks. Just want the new MC figure to see how different he is to the wave 1 version. Ebay is such a shithole and targets in my area haven't been getting the new stock.
>>9289785yeah ebay is only worth a damn to snag the occasional good deal you can find on a mcfarlane/joyride figure. the only people selling WCT figures on there are scalpers.
>>9289785Yo Joes, I went to target on a desperate whim and they had chief and six, no palmer tho >:( But the new chief has way better proportions than the original one, better elbows, arms actually can be flush with his form, better neck.waist is still immovable out of the box tho, and the knees look worse, but feel slightly better. overall I'm pretty happy with the changes and grapple hook is a serious bonus to me for some reason
>>9290276Also for those of you giga kings who are so inclined, you CAN swipe the chromed visor from the 1st MC to put into the wave 3 version, you will probably have to trim up the little block they added in to the middle so it fits though, since the chromed one is a bit thicker it doesn't fit over the thing inside.Also I can post a few posed pics of him if you guys want since nobody seems to want to take pictures of the new fig
>>9290295Awesome work anon. Yeah give us the deets!
>>9290295You clowns said the knees looked bad. This abomination is YOUR fault
>>9290306At least onthe chief, they added this little block of material here, probably for support, to hold the visor in place, the chromed visor doesn't quite fit over this so in order to get it to, just cut off the edges of the block, or just remove it entirely and the chromed visor plugs in no problem since it's the exact same piece
>>9290318I hate every single motherfucker that said the original knees were bad when they were perfectly fine.Cause now they're utterly terrible looking.That said, didn't know they changed the proportions on the Chief and fixed the elbows, so that's neat.
>>9290328>>9290295>>9290276Just went to Target and found ONLY the Chief. Picked him up even though I have my custom painted one. I'll decide if I want to hold onto him but it's good to know they at least really improved him this time.
Anyone know any good pinup Spartans? I wanna decal the mantis.
>>9290377straight up now the knees are no where near as functional AND look like dog shit. Fuck you faggots. Im betting we can just cut away a little material on that added block looking part and get back the same/better ROM?
>>9290276Post grapple shot plz
>>9290534The grapple shot is legit cool to have, it's not spring loaded or anything, but its got a nice long string with a little ball at the end so it doesn't fall, the hook pegs back into the main mount and stays there, and the whole thing clips onto the wrist super tight and snug so it doesn't fall off, it's obviously not meant to stay on there full time cause it's way too big, but its honestly cool as hell
>>9290627Lmao forgot pic after all that
>>9290629aw damn I was really hoping for it to be spring loaded like on the 3.75 version, don't see why else it would be so big and bulky. but the fact that its able to support chief's weight and allow him to hang around definitely is fucking kino lol
The thing I find most interesting about the noble six figure tho, is how they arbitrarily changed the helmet sculpt for the worse, for NO reason. I try not to be super critical of stuff and generally understanding for this manufacturer in particular because of growing pains and stuff, but this is just downright ugly, they enlarged the chin on the helmet and wrapped it further back, he straight up looks like he got his jaw broken so the UNSC made him a specially fit helmet to cover his disgusting disfigured jawAlso mine noble six's head is a totally different color than his body which is weird
>>9290629what the fuck why did they think the knees should look like that
>>9291592The master chiefs aren't nearly as bad as noble six, they're still ugly at full bend, but because of how it gets tucked in you can sort of get away with it
>>9291427Did you sculpt the visor on the blue one yourself? I always liked Mk V b with it on.
>>9292061Yeah I used sheet styrene and shaped it kinda right the sanded it down to the right shape, somehow there's a brain drain on the mark5b UA where everything has it missing the brim, but in game the UA upgrade has the brim, and the brim is so cool it's super annoying its just been lost to time
>>9292128Definitely going to try this thanks! I also hate that a lot of media has the brim missing.
>>9291427Left might be Reach accurate while left is Infinite accurate?
Any signs of the Mantis in Canada yet?
Well I'm beyond disappointed.
>>9295229Oh no :( why?
>>9295254A lot of gummy plastic, reminds me of the Mattel figures from a few years back. The hip engineering is astoundingly bad and barely affords any range. Ankles are loose. Neck has a weird ridge that locks the unhelmeted head into a single position. Arms can't go straight. Peg holes in the pistols are on the same side, so one has to face the opposite way. Overall it looks fine, and the swap out hands work very well, but this line is just not satisfying me.
>>9295229>>9295254Funny. I mean I agree on all those points, but I just opened mine a couple hours ago and like her. She has the range to do shooty poses really well, which is honestly like 75% of what I want out of the line. And the torso is somehow the best in the line, which was probably my biggest ongoing beef with the rest. The unhelmeted head is also really nice, aside from the neck thingie restricting it. The hips are definitely weak though, and I'm gonna see if I can dremel anything down to increase the range.
Looks like restock of wave 2 have painted visors also
>>9285063Yeah, Halo was in part a love letter to the space marines from Alien and that sort of style. The aesthetic is sort of a chunky, brute force way of making power armor etc. The new style they keep pushing forward with is such garbage.
>>9297054>Painted>Visor is still chromed outUh?
>>9297132Whoops my bad, I thought it was painted at quick glance because I didn’t see my reflection.
>>9296727Interested to see how that turns out, I'm afraid of carving into them cause they already look so vacuous as it is. Maybe I'm being too harsh, but it's frustrating when toy designers always seem to miss the mark on things that have been done properly numerous times before.
Ok how the hell am I supposed to get my hands on Wave 3. I missed wave 2 other than Emile thanks to GameStop, but I absolutely can not miss out on the blue elite. My local stores are a fucking joke and I don't want to pay ebay prices.
>>9297524You can't order from target?
>>9297524try meijer if you have one
at risk of breaking the cardinal rule, are there any decent statues of Cortana out there? I know the figure scene is absolute ass
>>9297886I'd fuck a statue of cortana
>>9297886Found this. If you mean specifically the H4 version, I don't see anyone ever producing that today, you'd have to get something 3d printed
>>9297886>I know the figure scene is absolute assNothing "decent" on the smaller figure front unless you happen to like the old McFarlane stuff but the 12" Mattel is surprisingly decent if you can deal with the simplified color palette.
>>9297925I never knew mattel even made that figure lol. AND in 12"?????? Yeah I'm getting it so I can fuck it
>>9297925I actually own this figure, I'll take some pictures of it when I get home. And suddenly I'm having a horrible idea to check colors, add any missing paint apps and make it look visually excellent. So cursed.
>>9295227Thumbnail made it look like the dog had an open wound :(
>>9297925Hopefully we get some good stuff for The Weapon, I'm weirdly into her
>>9297915that statue's pretty good but seeing WETA makes me think its probably way out of my budget>>9297925this one doesnt look too bad but choice to use opaque plastic vs transparent is real bummer>>9297896have more cortana
>>9298291H4 Cortana is something else, man.
>>9298174Infinite's not-cortana is cute!
>>9297564Only some of wave 1 and the three pack from wave 3, they list the elite as "out of stock"
Is there ever gonna be aliens or marines in the 6 inch jazzwares line? Getting kinda jealous of the smaller line
>>9298924Yeah leaks showed we are getting 6.5 Johnson and Arbiter in the next series
>>9298924>>9298987The cool thing about Marines and Elites are the simple amount of reuses they can have. Most marines simply need a headswap to make it a new character, maybe change the lower arms to be sleeveless depending on the game variant like H3. Same goes for the Elite where most of the H3 - Reach era only needed to swap the helmets and shoulder pads.I'm hoping 343 will allow Jazwares to have some fun with the practically endless character selection. The Marines especially were what helped give Halo its identity and charm.
>>9299459God I hope they do CE marines, I've been meaning to take a photo for ages but I have 11/12 ce marines from mega bloks, ce chief and a hog for them as I loved the old aliens inspired design and heavy plating (and the eyepiece, of course) but I'd love to get my hands on a modern figure form of one (or a few)
Why does the Play Arts Kai Halo 2 Master Chief go for like 500$ on ebay now?Is there a place i'm not seeing to get it for a more reasonable price?
>>9299676The real question is why they stopped making halo stuff.
>>9300196same reason McFarlane did.The brand's popularity dropped off a cliff and was no longer worth what the license cost. that license has since exchanged hands more than a few times, which undoubtedly made it so cheap that Jazwares is releasing some high quality stuff without costing as much as Hasbros lines.
>>9299676I got mine off mercari recently for $110. All that was missing was the box which I was fine with. Every now and again he'll pop up again on there.
>>9298423>purple cortananow we're talking!
Pulled this out of the case at my walmart the other day, I initially thought they had sent two Palmers and an orange guy but they messed up which is kinda wild,
>>9303490Would you have the UPC code ? Also did they have the mantis ?
>>9303490They're hitting Walmart shelves now? Nice. Also lol thats pretty funny I'd buy that and keep it in the box or something
snagged these fellas at target. no elite or the other spartan, but they had hyperius and hookshot chief
>>9306533Did u harass them to look in the back for u?
>>9307612no because I could tell they had already put everything they had out there
love this little man
>>9309292>>9308347Still wild how much the wrist mod turns the figure into an 11/10
>>9308474I would have personally still harassed them
>>9310396I see you're a hotwheels collector
>>9308347>>9309292Don't like the figure but still based
>>9312315I'm even worse
>>9265216I asked that a few months ago. Not sure if that was me you saw but thanks for letting me know. I love the joyride marines. Little bummed about them not being to scale. But not a deal breaker. Thank you anon if you are still here after 22 days.
>>9315502this looks too good to be true, except for the reach spartan cosplaying chief
>>9265216Oh my nostalgia I had that joyride one
This just showed up.
>>9316151>packaged with yet another infinite chieffor fucks sake
>>9316151Aww fuck, guess I'm digging deeper into the WoH line.
>>9315502>SGT Johnson>CE MarineFucking yes
>>9316151I wouldn’t mind buying this and just keeping it in the box.
>>9316320>>9316056It is, it's a bunch of customs
>>9264370The Mantis is a lot bigger than I was expecting, picked one up but the launcher on mine is put on backwards. Needs some paint and weathering too.
>>9316634I thought mine was backwards too but it's just the way it's put in the package, you'll have to twist things around a bit to get the arms facing the right way
>>9316898Yeah, figured that out, but now it seems like it's the MG that was put on wrong. Both the arms are facing the right way.
>>9316151I'd buy this and probably try to sell off the infinite figs
>>9316151>CE GruntWow, I did not fucking expect that. Absolute fucking soul I need this dammit
>>9316445Ah, well that just makes me sad.
>>9315502I hope they make the rookie. I like the rookie.
>>9316151I really hope we get a full CE line. And more vehicles too.CE/ H2 WarthogScorpionCE GhostBansheeWraithwould be kino
That feeling your American friend finds/ships a mantis for you and sends you the shipping receipt. Fuck that thing must be massive to cost as much as the toy
>>9316965Would anyone know how to fix this?
>>9319581it is possible that they really were put on wrong, but here's how they should look
>>9297886>>9297915>>9297925>>9298174>>9298291>>9298423Halo 2 and 3 is peak Cortana.
>>9316151>CE gruntWell shit, hopefully they seperate him out and do a ce line to go with it. Absolutely need it
>>9295306I feel like while they've made steps to improve that the QC issues along with some baffling design choices are really holding the line back from true greatness. I'd say I hope they shake out, but we're approaching what, wave 4? 5? And the Infinite Chief figure for example has received very little in the way of changes beyond downgrades like the visor. I want to like the line more than I do but it's getting harder to excuse certain faults.
>>9321510the series 3 chief is actually a significant improvment over the previous 2 series despite its visor being painted. The mark 5b figure however is a huge step backwards with its knees, the palmer figure gets a slight pass since nobody has made good hips for halo 4/5 figures and this is their first new mold
>>9321510>>9321678Speaking of the visors, is it confirmed that they'll be painted from now, or will they be chromed in future releases?
>>9297886>heaving mommy milkersonly thing 343 did right
I WILL ALWAYS BE MAD ABOUT THIS
>>9320433I'm too nostalgic for CE desu, but 2/3 is most iconic>>9321510I do hope to see things improve, I was originally all in. But with persistent issues, and so many Mk Vs repaints, I'll just be observing from here on out.
>>9320433mommy halo 4 any day of the week
>>9321726Look what took from us.... WCT do us right and give us a fucking falcon someone send the brand manager this photo
>>9317797He did the squad
>>9320433My monkey coomer brain will take halo 4 cortana
>>9321678I managed to snag Palmer yesterday and maybe it's just mine but the arms were very gummy as well. Her joint underneath the armor has an insane range but the solid black unpainted bodysuit does leave a lot to be desired. Side note it is amazing how much something simple like. Gundam panel line marker really improves the Spartan Collection figures
>>9321894what cortana is this?
>>9324642Heroclix, just cut off the base
I found all of wave 3 on a target endcap but nothing on the pegs, lucky me. Palmer looks like ass, but i was never a big fan of her armor. Now all i need is to find Emile
Just got noble 6 from a friend in the states. His knee pin was not placed properly and sticking out completely from the opposite side. I tried pushing it out to make it even but it feels like the pin is gonna break. Is jazwares good on replacements ?
>>9327834Yeah if you contact them they'll either send you a replacement leg or a whole figure.
>>9327905I tried getting them to send me a replacement pair of legs for the mantis (they had two right joints) and they just told me to return it to the store.
>>9327905Just got a reply from them, asking if they wanna give me a spartan green or gungnir as a replacement since they are out of Noble 6. I'll wait t'ill they have him again. Surprised how quick their customer service is.
>>9327834>>9328481Wow, think I'll get anything if I complain to them about my Palmer's floppy ankle?
>>9322372Does this guy take commissions?
>>9328488You can try. You got nothing to lose
>>9328543Nope, but he sells his kits. MarceloDavidCustoms on etsy, check it out. Lots of cool stuff.
>go to walmart>all the wave 1 WoH Chiefs that have been sitting there for a year are gone>replaced by a same amount of wave 2 Chiefs>no sign of any other wave 2 figures This sucks. I did find a Spartan collection Noble Six, though, so now I have 2 members of Noble team. Got to get my hands on an Emille now
>>9264370I just picked up this beast along side a lone Marine/trooper/notsupersoldierdude (I don't know halo terms, I never really played the game) and I'm really enjoying them. They're not the best figures I have at this scale, but for the price they're good and the Mech is pretty awesome. A lot more stable then a Vintage Collection AT-ST at least. After I got home I managed to grab the trooper/MC three pack off Amazon just so I can start building an army of these guys. I doubt I'll bother much with the aliens, but I want to build up an army of Spartans and troopers. Though Master Chief will probably end up being more of a troop builder for me since almost every set and vehicle seems to come with him. >>9316634I would love to see the Mantis with a good weathering, but that would easily bump the price up way higher then it currently is. That said, I'd be happy with even just a slight "scuffing" paint job of silver scratch marks at joints and corners.>>9321726That's a thing of beauty, a simple but effective troop dropship. Hopefully they release something similar in this line. The H tank would also be pretty cool to see get made, but it would need to seat more then one figure for it to be worthwhile to me.
Honestly out of everything, the thing that surprised me the most about this figure aside from the quality for 20 bucks, is the goddamn size. This is my first and he’s right there alongside my master grades. I’m considering doing some minor paint apps and weathering, along with picking up Jerome and Noble team as they come out.
>>9333916I think this really puts it to scale on some the older halo offerings from when I was a kid.
>>9333950Last pic and a nice discovery for me.
Any third-parties making weapons for The Spartan Collection?
>>9328488So I asked them if could wait till they have wave 3 in stock and they said they won’t have any at all. Could be some c.s quick response to solve the issue ASAP. Could try later on
>>9333950Haha why did u give forge that big ass Lancer tho
>>9316167I'm pretty sure the devs asked for this lol, they are adding master chief in all the mega construx sets and heroes lines as well.
>>9333916I know right, the spartan collection line is just staggering, it always blows my mind how big spartans are
>>9336976As they should be
>>9336976>that visor thoDamn, the visors really do make these figures. Wonder when they will be fixed :(
Since you guys are my friends, I'm gonna put out an infinite flight code here for whoever wants it, just redeem it on halowaypoint and you should be good. Obviously first come first serve:5R3W-MJJK-NHNT-2E68-XSAZ Reply when someone redeems it so other people know it's been used up already lol.
I found wave 3 in a gamestop, so I picked up noble six. It was a really weird choice to make old 6 instead of the guy from the actual game, but it's a really nice toy regardless. The joints are leaps and bounds in front of the first releases, QC wise at least.
Next wave of the 3.75" line got a leaked imageFred and the Elite Ultra are big highlights
>>9345478>Hiding the Fred helmetGaddamnit
>>9344632Got it, thanks anon
>>9345607Glad it worked for you, I got an error when I tried earlier this morning and figured someone snagged it.
>>9345478damn that elite ultra looks fucking menacing, need that mf. That grunt donkey also looks really cool, lol why he holding the stalker rifle tho. Also who is that monkey?
>>9345607Np, all the people I play vidya with were already in the flights so might as well give it out.
>>9345238Wdym old 6 instead of the one in the game? U talking about thom, the dude who died in that one live action trailer?
>>9345951Yea, I thought somethings like were just off at first like the helmet attachment and knife, but I looked at some pics and I'm pretty sure they just made thom.
>>9346065Eh, I wouldn't say noble 6's look is set in stone as he has had a lot of variations throughout the years. In the initial world premeire he had the same helmet attachment. Even in this loot crate official art piece he had different shoulder armor.
>>9346170>>9346174Well dang, maybe that's what jazwares went with.
>>9346065Huh, that image makes me pretty okay with Six not having a chromed visor.That said, still hope those comes back in the next line.
Sorry if you guys have already talked about this but is there a reason they're packaged like that?
>>9347050To prevent direct needler shots to the fun zone.
>>9347059At first I thought it was some employee that did this but then I saw the the shape the plastic is in.
>>9347050Chief has to pleasure himself now that cortana is gone.
Anybody who cut the trigger fingers loose on wave two and onwards hands, watch out. The fingers are fine, but I took emile off the shelf after a month or so and the stress broke the triggerguard on his shotgun.
>>9336292MarceloDavidCustoms on Etsy does a fair amount of earlier Halo designs. The guy should be paying me for how often I advertise his shit, but it's kinda the best you're gonna find.
>>9352968Tell that nigga to compensate u immediately
finally snagged an emile in the wild at target, now im all caught up with the spartan collection. I assume carter is next for the reach portion of the waves bc they hate fun,
More shots of next wave.
And another armory pack. They're finally going hog wild.
Yeah I'm gonna need this one.
One more. I hope they sell those weapon racks in smaller releases so they can be more easily collected.
>>9353243Sick Elite Ultra. Also, Frederic. Rest of Blue Team basically confirmed.They really need to stop repacking Master Chief though, jesus christ. Enough, guys. We have plenty Chiefs every goddamn wave.
>>9353243>T W O Chiefs
>>9353243The fuck ? Have 2 of the same Chiefs but one has 1 less accessory. That is some next level jewery there
I finally did it bros! Might put some foil on the leds to more direct the light, but all it needs is some waterslides, pigments and varnish! Yay! Any good halo pinups girls for the decals? What about camo? Tigerstripe?
>>9353171Ey fuck you guy I like Carter's armor, I been replaying reach on legendary recently and forgot how good their armors actually look. I'm honestly more excited for George than Carter but after George Carter definitely beats out jun.
>>9353243>>9353247>>9353251I can see this line making someone's childhood brighter, glad to see jazwares is one of the few companies that actually gives a shit about the toys they're making
Have the WoH series 3 figures appeared anywhere online yet? I'm still missing the turquoise spartan, the elite minor, and the 2-pack with the jackal
>>9354891Not yet. Hopefully Gamestop gets them like they usually do.
>>9355192Hopefully, otherwise I just saw all of series 2 at Meijer so they might have series 3 eventually after a bit of delay
>>9353490Pretty fucking based anon how did u wire it and where is the battery at? Idk about any pin up girl decals lol and desu I think a woodland or urban camo would look better on the mantis, tho I think ultimately no camo would look better.
>>9353243Another pretty good wave with the exception of 2 fucking Chief's. If that weren't bad enough they basically look exactly the same except one doesn't come with a grappleshot? If they cost the same wtf would be the point of NOT getting the one with the grapple? Cmon WCT lol.
>>9353248Yeah me too that shit looks kino. Although I haven't even found the armory pack for series 3 so idk how I'm gonna get my hands on this one
Has anyone found the UNSC checkpoint set anywhere in stores or online yet?
Found the new Elite at Target, he's great looking but has no side to side head movement so he can't aim with the rifle he comes with. Looks great with a needler though
>>9355979Haven't seen them at all unfortunately. Otherwise I would have picked one up. I dont even know how much it would cost lmao. Really hoping to find one.
>>9356700easily my biggest gripe with the elite as well
>>9356700Which figures come with the needler?
>>9358037Grunt in the Grunt and Marine 2 packBlack and red AA Spartan
I just picked up that armory pack with the blue gungir and purple elite
>>9358161It was at Walmart of all places. I'll post some pis in a bit
>>9358211How much was it?
>>9358238$25.00 it has a yellow shield with its well
>>9289582WTF! I've been to 3 Walmarts in my area and none of them have anything Halo.
>>9358211>>9358250Shit I'll have to give all my walmarts a visit this weekend then. I've only been checking out the targets since they are the only stores that usually have the new stuff. $25 is also damn good deal for that pack, considering you get two figures and then a bunch of accessories. I was expecting at least $30
FolksNext wave is already righting all wrongs with the last one (aside from knees, we'll see on that)
Chrome visors are backTrigger finger hands (or trigger discipline at least) are backBetter variety and another Noble Team member
Another Chief, but this time it's Halo 2Reminds me so much of the old Joyride
Weapons look to be properly scaled now too, finally.New Infinite armor Spartan looks to be minor amounts of reuse, along with a brand new gun.Hell yes.
Back of the box. Looks like we're also getting one more Infinite Chief, this time the one from the Anniversary two-pack, judging by the new AR with the stripe on it.Still, given how good the rest of the wave is, I can live with it. This wave has the best variety yet.>>9358529Hopefully soon. I need my gunpla Spartan.
>>9358530These too. GAMESTOP says they're due in December instead of the original date of Oct 24th. bummer.
>>9353247>>9353248>>9353251These are the kind of things that if they were released under the MCfarlane series they would have blown my mind.Pity in the UK we only ever got the first wave, of which i only got an incredibly floppy Kat that can barely stand up on her own, so i can't exactly get excited.Anyone else have problems like this? I kind of want to buy another Kat before she disappears but i'm worried about it happening again
>>9358535Even the reissued Kat with the fixed visor had floppy issues with the waist. I got Palmer today and weirdly she had the same problem... Legs are fine on both, but the waist is a mess.Guess they're still figuring out securing the ball joint on smaller chested figures.>>9358532Yeah I assume the delay is because of a requirement to have this two-pack coincide with the games launch.
Jazwares has been so good on these figures but goddamn, I wish they would do the McFarlane thing have maybe a couple figures come with swappable armors. I’d kill to have some way to recreate what I’ll end up making in Infinite or maybe what I had in Reach. >>9358522These all are so sick. Kinda didn’t expect Jun for the next Noble guy, but that’s fine by me. Oh, btw I work at a Target and peaked through the inventory but apparently, the 6.5” Spartan Collection is getting Carter, Fred, Alice, Rogue, as well as Johnson with Spartan Laser? Was kinda expecting that to be next.
>>9358526this kicks ass
>>9358524I wonder if that knife on his arm can unsheath like w noble 6....>>9358526Fucking based as hell was not expecting that >>9358527Really like this dude as well Man this next wave is great. I really hope the visor issues are resolves on the series 3 figures at some point tho. Been holding out and them bc of that. Has anyone heard any more word about that from the brand manager? I know he has mentioned fixing them before the series even came out, but has he said anything else since then?
>>9358526Can't wait to pose this guy next to my joyride chief
>>9358522Wow this actually look dope. The colors on this are pretty cool
>>9358573He hasn't said anything yet, but I can only assume it'll be a running change on wave reissues like usual. Even wave 2 had this, with Jerome having his upper-thigh joints flipped on his second release vs his first. No one really noticed because it didn't affect articulation, but my 'tism noticed it because the pattern on his upper thighs no longer synced with the pattern on his lower ones.
>>9358562Yeah we learned about those listings last thread. Arbiter is coming too as a $35 figure, which gives me hope we'll get Jorge as a deluxe figure sometime.
>>9358526>>9358522looking good, can't wait
>>9358522I really hope they release a mega construx yoroi
>>9358524>>9358522Definitely gonna get these two, a little disappointed that Carter wave isn't this wave specially cause of the Johnson and arbiter listings but these look pretty great still. That halo 2 chief looks to be a really really bright green though specially after the 2 pack chief and their much more muted greens.
>>9295227It's behind me, isn't it?
>>9358522>>9358524>>9358526Glad they skipped the chrome visors on the worst wave, because this looks fucking based.Only gripe I have is that I wished the Yoroi had a regular sidekick instead of the disruptor, but I'll live.
What item does this code unlock?
>>9359386Who knows, no one bought it bc it was a shitty toy lol
>>9359421Master Chief is a learned mf
>>9264370was the Mantis design inspired by MG Rex?
For those who know, did Jazzwares reissue wave one with QC fixes? I've got the two multiplayer spartans and they're pretty much completely unfixable, so I wanted to see if I could replace them with something better.
>>9359742Any tips on ensuring getting the fixed variants? I know one of my targets has a Kat from the very first shipment still because the visor is completely blue.
>>9359743Is the visor chromed/shiny tho? The Kat figs with the blue chromed visors are the reissues and the ones with the silver visors are the first releases. For the other figures, generally there really is no way to tell other than actually handling the figures. Considering it's been a year since they released it's safe to say they are gonna be the later fixed batches.
>>9359750Not blue chrome, just blue. Pretty much the color of the armor. No metallic shine of any sort. It's a super weird QC thing, I just figured her visor never got painted/vac chromed.
Jun & the samurai Spartan look cool, but man where the fuck are some aliens or marines?
>>9359743If the boxes have the little piece of cardboard with the Infinite DLC code then it's a first release. If it doesn't then it's a second release.
>>9359806Johnson and Arbiter are coming with the next wave as separate, deluxe releases.
>>9359839I understand Arbiter, if these guys are going to be in scale, he'll be much bigger (which means Jorge will most likely also be deluxe), but why is Johnson deluxe?
>>9358522>>9358526BASED Jazwares, every time I try to commit to one of their scales they release something that makes me dip into both of their lines
>>9360075I can assume Johnson will be coming with more if he's a deluxe figure. All we know for sure is a Spartan Laser but surely it'll be more. Otherwise it would be absurd.
>>9360213It would be funny if he's deluxe just bc they decided to make him really big.
>>9360249Deluxe becomes he comes with a 1:1 scale cigar.Pre-smoked.
>>9360075I want him with his damn big ass armor in Halo Wars 2
>>9359757Hmmm, so doing some investigation there seems to be at least 3 different versions of Kat. The first one I have pictured on the left is the first version, which has a matte silver visor. These generally had the most QC issues. The one in the middle was the reissue which not only now had a chromed blue-toned visor, but the paint applications were also slightly improved along with fixed QC. The last one on the very right is one I haven't taken notice to as I don't see Kat figures that much anymore, and if I do I don't really care to pay attention to them. But as you can see she now has a matte blue visor, like the one you are describing, and from the pictures I've seen of this figure it also seems to have the slightly improved paint applications. I can't say on the QC bc I haven't heard much about this version, maybe bc it is from a much later batch. If that's the case I'm assuming it doesn't have any QC issues. Safest bet would be the figure in the middle, but I think the matte blue visor figures should also be okay. Also yes I'm autistic for investigating all this while at work lol.
>>9360274If he's a deluxe figure honestly would make sense if he came with that. Even at the 3.75 scale that would be fucking badass.
All this visor talk really has me wondering when they’ll give the 3rd Wave figures their chromed version. I wanna pick up Six, but that painted visor and also mid colored head is kinda wack.>>9358973Holy shit, Arby figure? Hell yeah, that’s a day one cop for me, especially if it’s the OG trilogy design.
>>9360448Tbh if they made Halo 5 arbiter I wouldn't even be very disappointed. Actually one of the few 343 designs I really like.
>>9358526This is what I've wanted since the beginning. The green is too bright but meh. The proportions are fucking great. Ugh I'm kinda mad I got the series 1 Chief and have the Anniversary 2 pack on order. This would be definitive for me if it was just a tad darker.
>>9360963He should be darker in-hand since this is an overexposed photo against a white backdrop. Additionally, a black wash will both fill in detail and darker the green a shade.
is there something like a collection chart anywhere that shows every figure from each wave?
>>9360517Agreed, just cause having some more Elites as well as named characters is tight. Still, it would be even cooler to have the classic design be paired with the upcoming H2 Chief.
>>9265216I wish I could get my hands on the Halo CE line without spending over $1,000Sucks to be a younger fan that wasn't old enough when they came out.
>>9280909Are the armors secondary colors inter-changeable like McFarlean's Reach line?
