Pictures of the wave 4 of the Spartan Collection have surfaced.Previous thread: >>9264370
>>9366220Yoroi looking like he absorbed all of Master Chief's budget allocation. Love his weapons, hopefully he gets a good grip on his sword. No more katanas in Halo I'm guessing?
>>9366287Oh theyre gonna add them for sure and it'll only cost 10,000 CR or will be level 500 in the battle pass but don't worry just buy some level skippers and you'll be good :)
>>9366220June is looking fucking kino fuck if I get him then I'll want to get them all to complete the set and I still want noble 6 but I'm waiting for them to fix the visors
>>9366311>Buying level skippers on battle passes that never expirelol?
>>9366312Seems this new wave will have the chrome visors back.
>>9366311I was more meaning for the figure. They'll probably release a different colorway of the armor with a katana in the future when they are added to the game then. No sense in making such a nice mold and not giving it more runs, probably with a new helmet.
>>9366220Yoroi and Jun are on my must-buy list now.
>>9366319They re-released MK V(B) like 17 times with different colors and weapons, so you're probably right.
>>9366322Knife looks big enough to be removable too, and considering they already did it with noble 6 it's safe to say they'll probably reimplement it, which is something I always wanted with the McFarlane figures but Todd was too much of a pussy to do anything cool like that, plus the figures were probably too small anyways lol.
>>9366220Fuuuuuuck, this might actually be a wave where I buy all four figures. So fucking hyped.
>>9366319tbf they actually already have a katana in the game that I forgot about. Its like a little hip attachment. Was leaked from the flights lol, check it out in this vid at 1:34https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGLlohDCKjE
>>9366220I like the enigma armor but that booger green chest armor ruins the color scheme
>>9366344I feel it may be an unfinished proto because the color looks like its just unpainted plastic.I may be wrong though.
>>9366344Agree, love that helmet but the chest color annoys me to no end.What do people think of fractured armors? Toy wise I think they're pretty bad ass. I can finally have decent sci fi knight figures like Destiny
>>9366508>FracturesIm posting this every thread until it happens.
Seeing that Halo 2 Chief makes me hope we get an H2 Anniversary Chief in a slightly darker olive green like pic related.
>>9366508Yoroi and the one or two other ones from the leaks look pretty good. They give you something totally unique but are still very recognizably Halo. Especially when it comes to the toys, it gives you a lot of variety and has the potential to attract people who wouldn't otherwise be interested in Halo. I'm a bit worried they'll go too overboard with it though, if the MCC armors are any indication.
>>9366220>Another wave that won't arrive in the UK.Wake me up, all these images do is taunt me & make me seethe with envy
>>9366542Worst case scenario, you can always give him a black wash which will not only fill detail out but also darken his shade a bit.
>>9366220>H2 Chief comes with fuckhuge SMGs>Jun's sniper is too smallHave we ever gotten clarification as to how the weapon sizes got so fucked up? Don't they have access to the actual, official renders or at least some sort of footage from the games?
>>9366768I think the weapons are sized for 6 inch figures, which a regular marine would be, which makes them seem too small for the the 7 inch spartans.I'm pretty sure in game the weapon sizes also change depending on if a marine or a spartan is holding it.
>>9366768I can only assume it's a byproduct of when these were in development. Jun's sniper looks to be mostly the same as the Infinite sniper rifle, which was also undersized.
Found Palmer and Six went I went to Gamestop to pick up Metroid Dread.Pretty pleased with them overall, even if Six's new knees suck. Although they do seem a bit more gummy feeling than previous waves, but it's not something I'm bothered by.
>>9367345Oh, and do wish they had the chrome visors, but that's getting fixed next wave so I can't complain too much. That and Six's default visor isn't too shiny to begin with.
>>9367348Noble Team is coming along pretty well. Can't wait for Jun and the rest of them.
>>9367352Fucking love Emile.
>>9367352Kat will end up being the only i don't get I reckon.
>>9367352How is your Kat’s joints? I’m really tempted to jump in and get all of Noble squad they’ve made so far, but I’ve heard she has issues.
>>9366220Unfortunate Jun's gonna have to live with an undersized sniper but the figure itself looks fantastic.
>>9368325Her torso and one of her hips was pretty loose, but I was able to fix that pretty easily by putting some paper towel in the ball joints to increase the friction. After that she was fine.Had to do the same to Six too for his torso joint, actually.
>>9366539Based gundam poster
I just want the ENDLESS figures already
>>9367352Emile's hard to come by these days, fuckin sucks I wish I'd grabbed him when I had the chance.
>>9368510ENDLESS SAMA I KNEEL
HOHOHO BAAAAAARREEE YOUR CHEEKS SPARTAN
I return to America after 2 years being overseas in 3 weeks. Is it still easy to find the 4 inch EOD figure in Walmart or target?
Another day, another Chief... this time Walgreens exclusive
>>9368748Exact loadout as Yoroi. Weird.
>>9368748I’d rather this be an exclusive than something I’d actually want
>>9368748There's 300 fucking Chiefs I don't think anyone's going to go into a frenzy over this one
>>9366220>Wave 4 in the US>Still not wave 2 in the UKI hate this
>>9368803I think the US is still on 3. Canada is at 2 right now, I think. Wave 4 was just revealed a few days ago.
>>9368748Oh man I hope they never pull a Hasbro and having all the high in demand characters as store exclusives. Imagine an ODST as a walmart only or the rest of Noble Team.
>>9366768At least the ravanger looks correctly sized lol
So Noble Six is one of those figures that's just never going to show up in-store, right? I ought to just bite the bullet and buy him for like twice retail price online before he gets any more expensive?
I got one at a gamestop a couple weeks ago where they had the whole wave, and a different one I picked up my switch up from yesterday had all four too. No clue if you can check the site to see stock, but check gamestops.
>>9368390Paper towels, huh? I put some blue tac in for the waist joint on the Halloween Noble 6, but maybe that's a better idea.>>9369463Do you have any Gamestops in your area? They seem to be getting plenty of this wave. If not, then maybe that is your best bet.
>>9369522Not him, but I've pretty much been using plastic wrap like that forever now. Usually the thin stuff they use to prevent paint transfer on imports or what the accessories are packaged in, but cutting a 1x1 piece out of a ziplock should do it too.
>>9369463I saw like 2 or 3 at my local walmart the other day, so maybe check there?
>>9366220Why go with the enigma helmet? It seems so bulbous and there are definitely way better designs that are new.(Not pictured the Anubis helmet, which I hope is released)
>>9366220Love this line, very spartans and zero enemies for buy
>>9370195We've got the Arbiter coming, which I'm sure will then segue into a Covenant Collection.The 3.75" line has also been doing great on the army building side, especially with its vehicles
>>9370195Get the 1/18 ones then. Big boy.
>>9370195He is inevitable.
>>9368748Why not make him Red or Blue just to make it meaningful to get?
Just saw this.
>>9371157So you saw this pic >>9366542 and reverse searched it?
>>9371225Oh shit my bad. Anyway I kinda wish they would just package CE with H2 Chief if they're going to do an Anniversary set.
>>9370866ENDLESS if you will
>>9371507That was announced a good couple months ago, while the Halo 2 chief got revealed a few days ago lol.
>>9367348>>9367352>>9367801>>9368652>>9368325You guys too?I've gone thru 3 Kat's because every single has one loose floppy right arm
I like this toy line but I like the 4 inch figures better honestly less QC issues
>>9366220Yeesh, and I thought the choice of green on the old Chief was bad.
>>9370195>>9370236>>9370263>one elite>it's orange>no halo 1 or 2 design versionfeelsbad
>>9372015This is the biggest reason I don't have her yet and why I don't feel like committing to building up Noble team (again) unless I find her on a deep discount. Any odds Kat gets a proper redo with the improved QC?
wonder when gamestop's website is finally gonna carry wave 3 of the spartan collection
>>9372547Series 3 of the 1/18 stuff has a blue elite, the one buildup pack has a purple one in it too
>>9372598Huh. Didn't know about that. Got links to where I can buy them?
>>9372602The walmart link is supposedly the first armory set with the purple elite and the spartanhttps://www.target.com/p/halo-infinite-4-34-elite-mercenery-figure/-/A-81322162#lnk=sametabhttps://www.walmart.com/ip/Halo-3-75-Fig-Mission-Pack/489234915
>>9372622Thank you kind sir. I'm gonna be honest, I don't know too much about halo other than it's an FPS game set on superstructures where space marines fight aliens, but the designs look cool, and the toys are relatively inexpensive so why not? However I do think the Spacemonkeys are really fucking lame compared to Elites.
>>9372547It looks like the ghost has weird feet.
>>9372547They made way more enemies than that anon.
>>9372622 Any other links for the rest of the line?Thank you
Noble six’s helmet and body must have been made in two separate factories, because the color difference is laughably bad.
>>9373077That's pretty accurate to a lot of Reach helmets tbf, a lot of Reach's helmets have an issue were the helmet and materials are a lighter shade than the main body
>>9372645>Spacemonkeys are really fucking lame compared to Elites.Funnily enough this is pretty much canon lore for why the Covenant eventually fell apart.
>>9373158I feel like Noble Six's helmet (at least the default 'canon' appearance) is one of the exceptions. And should be the same shade of grey as the rest of his armor.Though, if the version of Noble six we have now is intentionally supposed to be Thom instead. Then, well, fair enough.
>>9370236>>9370263>>9370866But where are the 6 or 7' covenant figures??? Where are the Inquisitor? Vulcan? Covenant soldiers???
I know I know “read the rules” but new Gaming Heads statue up for preorderhttps://www.gamingheads.com/halo-infinite-master-chief-escharum-unsc-edition-diorama.html
>>9374076They haven't made them?? The 3.75 ones are your only option for now???
>>9370195Well, it is called the SPARTAN Collection
>>9374669COVENANT and, or UNSC Collection when? Also technically Sgt. Johnson is a SPARTAN ONE so he qualifies.
>>9373819It’s so weird that the Play Arts figures also did the same look that the Spartan Collection eventually also did for Noble Six.
>>9373819>>9375416Pure ass-speak but I can only assume it simply comes down to what reference material is given out to those who license the Halo IP.
>>9375416Man I forgot how thin the PAK's waists were.
annual where's my wearable helmet post.
>>9374669But we already know Arby is gonna be in it...
>>9375571It's starting to show upAnd shoppers continue to be shoppers
>>9375416Were the PAKs actually any good? My only experience with them is one of the mass effect ones, and the joints felt really bad. Like the ratchets were there, but there was so much flex between them it was impossible to stand. All their halo stuff looks really nice, though.
>>9375738That paint job is so shit, not surprised it broke.
>>9374350>3.75Pff! horrible size, need a real 7 or 8' Inquisitor and a 12' Didact now! O almost a 5.3' Cortana
Nice pose, corporate coomers
>>9375847Most of them were bad. The Halo 2 Chief, however, was a miracle and is one of the best Halo figures ever made.It sells for like $500-700 now for a reason.>>9375898Apparently the Chief in the middle has "special 20th anniversary coloring"
>>9375440Probably. There's at least multiple pieces of art/renders where Six has the helmet attachment on him.I also think that helmet looks better with it on there instead of just the base look, but that's just me.
>>9375910>Spread your legs more, Cortana
>>9375898Really enjoying all the enemy figures. i dont play the game btww
>>9375440>>9373819>>9375416>>9376354Its from the world premier, first time we saw 6 he had it
>>9376391GOD when are they going to fix this
>>9375738Might be a gluing issue. Look at that slop on the "nose."
>>9375738the haloween helmet is actual shit. the visor is only glued in with hot glue, the helmet is that soft felxible plastic so basically any flex at all and the visor pops out. this helmet is not the same as the jazzwares one we're supposed to be getting
So, I’ve gotten some of the World of Halo stuff and am kind of smitten with it. Is there a decent place to order/ore-order them online? I notice that the major toy retailers I visit hardly stock any halo stuff.Most stuff hasn’t been too hard to acquire, but it seems like the single packed figures fly off the shelf.
>>9376697The lack of bloom? Hopefully mod tools will make it easy. Outside of the shitty bloom it still looks way better than the 360 version IMO, though the world premier trump's all
>>9375898The elite, grunt, and esharum are all based af. Will also be picking up Fred, he looks pretty good other than his visor looking like playdoh>>9375979Mmm, that's what I thought the reason why there was a second chief in this wave, some sort of "special" coloring that's almost undiscernible from the other figure lmao. Could have at least given him different weapon as well, preferably one we haven't seen yet.
>>9375898>>9378157>escharum is brown in the game>every single toy company on the planet makes him greyFFS I know brown plastic breaks, but you could keep the mold grey and at least paint his whole face brown, not just his goatee! Lazy hacks
>>9378980His design may have changed. We haven't seen him in a year, after all.
>>9366342That’s just his suicide sword™ for when he can’t complete the in-game challenges to get Battle Points™ for his Battle Pass™
>>9371146Red vs. Blue no longer exists in Halo. Only [Insert Ally Outline Color] vs. [Insert Enemy Outline Color]
Any female Spartans in this line?
>>9372547>That filename Kek
>>9372709Imagine a Ghost, but instead it waddles around
>>9378980>>9379071I’m sort of hoping that he looks more like what his concept art showed, where he looks more scarred/burned. It set him apart from the other monkey men. Like, since 343i make it sound like we won’t be seeing Atriox much, if any, in the base release of the game, they could at least make him look a bit more menacing/unique.
>>9379504I remember that animation, very noice. I liked the Spartan face-sit animation more. I’m an ass man, personally.
>>9379518The female elite still has more ass.
>>9379527What would be neat is if they made an Elite face-sitting animation. Now THAT would be 10 out of 10 -IGN.
>>9379492Kat and Palmer officially so far but nothing stops you from using headcanon for any of the nameless repaints or Noble Six.
>>9379550What would also be neat is if they made an Elite breeding animation.
>>9379516He's already menacing, he broke /hg/
>>9379625Keks where keks are due, but I just realized one of those posters is artwork from a particular porn artist.
>Kat falls off shelf>robo hand broke>can't get peg out even with tweezers>super glue spread out so I can't just attach the hand back on the pegRight time to pick a hand and stick with it I guess. Might as well rip her open fix that waste while I'm at it
God I hope once we get all of Noble they put out some special edition box set for all of them with better paint apps and fixed up QC
People who are sexually attracted to Elites are in for a good time in Infinite.Hope we get some Spartan Collection scale figures soon
>>9379783No doubt they will. Gotta make use of all that original moulding to make back the costs.
>>9379909who the hell is this guy?? also I don't want to fuck elites because they have no lips to kiss.
>>9380306>I don't want to fuck elites because they have no lips to kiss.multiple jaws means more lips to kissjus' gotta pick and choose
>>9366220Is Noble 6 from wave 3 hard to get? Haven’t seen him at any targets / online, and is marked up by scalpersAlso that halo 2 chief looks great just a shame he’s so bright and I already got wave1 chief and the 2 pack of him preordered
How many versions of the Chief do you guys think they're willing to make? Is there really any major difference between the CE and CEA, Mjolnir 5 armor? Or M6 between H2/H2A/H3? H4 and H5 use the same.
>>9380510Check Gamestop, I've been seeing the whole wave there
>>9380695There releasing a H:CEA Chief in a two pack with an Infinite Chief in December and Halo 2 Chief right after that. Im hoping for a H2A and, or H3 Chief because I prefer the darker olive green over the shiny tinkerbell green in Combat Evolved and OG Halo 2. Hopefully Jaz doesn't even bother with H4/H5 Chief since his torso literally looks like toilet bowl with a head sticking out of it.
>>9366220Is this coming out this year or is there any time window on it?
>>9380745Probably by the end of the year. January at the latest, I'd say.
>>9380695Personally I'm hoping after not-CEA Chief(there's weird differences, it's like a merge of classic and CEA) we get classic Chief and pic related which I assume is Infinite CE MKVIf they wanted to be real cheeky they could do Reach "Chief"
>>9380695And yeah there's a ton of differences between classic CE Chief and CEA Chief. CEA Chief is way more angular, CE Chief if they want to detail him up should look something like Lehtos recent HD rendition of it
Is this figure worth it for like a cool ~$20-25? Does he scale somewhat close to the 6.5” Spartan Collection? Better to just wait for a possible Jazwares Locke?I think Locke’s potential as an underdog character was super wasted, along with a lot of premises in 5, but I really dig his armor. One of the few 4-5 armors I actually think looks good.
>>9381205NIB $20-25 isn't a bad deal, although the H5 McFarlane figures are pretty damn meh and have absolutely abysmal articulation. And no he is like 4" so he'll be tiny compared to the 6.5s and scale better w the 3.75s, although he'll still be big compared to them. The McFarlane figures don't scale at all with the Jazwares desu, other than weapons maybe.
>>9381213He's like 5.5". Makes for a manlet space man in 1:12.
>>9381205You're better off getting the Mattel Locke if you want something that scales closer to the Spartan Collection, but even then he'll be shorter.Honestly your best option is to wait for Jazwares IMO.
>>9381257Mattel shit is shit. Cheapo as fuck looking.Also, here's scale for McFarlane's last Halo figures. The entire line kept on scaling up over the years, likely because vehicles were no longer being made.Also, yeh, I'd wait for Jazwares to make s omething. Maybe get McFarlane's for the odd weapon (only Reach+, because that's when they scaled up).
>>9381257This >>9381267The mattel figures were fucking trash. Still regret not getting that ODST tho, they cost like $300 now baka. Absolutely kino design
When’s big gal Cal getting a toy?
>>9381267Oh yeah, the Mattel figures in general are trash, don't get me wrong, especially those wave 1 figures. Was just providing an alternative option they could look into if they were that desperate for a Locke figure.That said, I do have a soft spot for the Buck and Arbiter figures they did and enjoy them, but that might be my love of the characters more than anything else.>>9381311Same, really. Especially since I don't see Jazwares doing the Halo 2 ODST design anytime soon.
>>9369463Found mine at Target and then another at a different Target yesterday. They also had Jerome and wave 2 Chief
>>9380939Damn that looks sexy! Would buy a Figuarts or Figma.
>>9381492As much as I loathe imports, I feel like only Figma and maybe Revotech could do her and the other Halo Legends characters justice. She looks like Chief with her helmet on, so she most likely be a repaint.
>>9382012Spartan 1337 when??????
>>9382360Are you talking about Daisy or the guy that falls out of the pelican?
>>9382483guy that falls out of the pelican
>>9381213>>9381257>>9381267>>9381311>>9381512Thanks, fellas. Just seems like it’s better to wait until Jazwares eventually rolls something out.Also has me wondering on what exactly will 343’ll do with Locke since Infinite’s like a soft reboot of things. I remember seeing a brute megabloks toy with his helmet as a shoulder mounted trophy. Him being killed like that would be pretty meh.
>>9383852I doubt he's dead, since it'd be surreal for that to be revealed by some toy they knew would pop up before release.More than likely intentionally there just to make players wonder when, in actuality, he's fine and just got owned like all the rest of the UNSC.
>>9381311>>9381512$300? Fucking hell to think I bought the only one I saw from my now gone KMart a couple of years back because it was the only semi-decent looking Mattel figure I had seen from the line.
>>9384623Wild how Mattel made a good figure the moment they dropped the swappable armor bullshit.
>>9384623Mad jelly. I am still waiting for an ODST that has decent articulation.
>>9384623Damn, wish I was that lucky. But yeah he's like 450 dollars on ebay now.Anyways, here's Noble Six in a poncho cause why not.
>>9384750>spartans never sleep, they're just going blankie mode
>>9384623Lucky ass anon>>9384750Master chief straight up slept for 4 years. Ashame we never got to see it in game but at least we got w toy from it lol.
>>9384864Whoops, second half meant for >>9384778
>>9384667yeah if jazwares want instant money they should be releasing waves of ODSTs not that reach armor
>>9384750Looks neat!People in armor with cloaks/capes are always a treat!
Anyone got that tutorial to fix 1000 toys chief with figma parts?
>>9369463I ended up finding one at a GameStop. He looks great!
>>9386319You gotta make sure it's from the more recent Figma ankle joints.The Archetype 2.0 has ones I used.
>>9386592For another reference, this is about how the joint should look when plugged in, before putting the wrist cover back on (the cover just pops off if you wedge something flat under it and slowly push it off)I just painted the Archetype 2.0s gray joint black with some Tamiya rattlecan and that was plenty for it to retain its color despite friction.I also used a hand drill instead of a dremel but with the same mentioned bit size, for drilling into the hands.
Got a fig today, saw this at target a few days ago and regretted not getting it after seeing it wasn't readily available online but lucky for me it was still there. Love the color, it reminds me of my brother's paintballs.
>>9369463This is me but with Emile. Can't find him fucking anywhere. My Walmart is finally getting Wave fucking 1 though so maybe he'll show up soon enough.
>>9387101Very nice anon, I personally didn't like the color but you can never go wrong w mark vb. Went with the white one instead. This one is also kinda sick
>>9387803This is one thicc boy, I love the heft to this figure but the waist is a bit weird.
>>9387820Yeah the waists definitely are the main crutch of these figures
>>9387101He’s got those Rimmy Tim colors
>>9388898Well, howdy, pardner!
>>9388898>s3 in SPIGibesmedat
>>9388940>>9388953This is a thing I've been working on with MarceloDavidCustoms on Etsy. At the risk of promoting him (though I don't get any money out of this, I just wanted an SPI kit to exist), kits like his ODST one will be popping on there later.I'm really happy with how it turned out since no one has bothered to make even a minifig of SPI, let alone an articulated figure.Mine should arrive in the mail in a few days and I'll have more pics to share then.
>>9388898Fucking beautiful, but now I'm sad its not in any game
>>9389267Hopefully one day. The community has been asking for it for years and Infinite at least has a setup that could support it with the armor core system.
Check your walmarts, Blue Gungnir/purple Elite Armory is starting to show up.
>>9389387>>9389408It's up online toohttps://www.walmart.com/ip/Halo-3-75-Fig-Mission-Pack/489234915
Didn't see it in the box pics, but it also comes with an energy barrier.
Crates open too
>>9375738That's disguise, not jazwares.
>>9389062Holy based what figure is this kit for I'm probably gonna pick one up. Are you the same person who always promotes that dude and made red team lol?
>>9389387>>9389408>>9389436>>9389454>>9389473What a cute set, probably gonna wait for the armory set that comes out next wave tho since it comes with a brute minor and grunt jockey or whatever they are called. >>9389421>$25 What a fucking steal
>>9389536It's a kit for the movie Snake Eyes, which I think is still like $20 on Amazon. Should be compatible with the Classified Snake Eyes too, but I'll be testing that for sure when my kit arrives.>Are you the same person who always promotes that dude and made red teamLike two people in the general tend to post him, but I do it when I post my customs since I get my guns from him. But yeah, I'm the one that did Red Team and also Fred and the white and red Spartan.I'm working on a Kelly next, as soon as I get a custom helmet model for her I commissioned finished up.
>>9389421>single packed figures are ten>basically all that extra shit for fiveI honestly don't know how they're doing it. This and their little fortnite guys are some of the best value on shelves right now.
>>9384750Do you, or anyone else, have more stuff of Spartans in robes/capes/cloaks/ponchos? I really like that look for Spartans. And just people in armor in general, I suppose,
>>9389387Canada is still getting wave 2. All the cool stuff is only wave 3. Gotta get that mantis and gungoose
>>9386377I mean, Arby’s pretty cute UwU
I think I made the wrong choice getting into the 6 inch line, the 3.75 is so cool
>>9390022I'm doing both because they're both so cool
>>9390075Same. I'm not a 3.75 collector, but the World of Halo stuff is just too good to ignore. It made me realize why 3.75" TVC fans are so upset about what Hasbro is doing to the line.There is nothing cooler than just walking into a store and having the pick of the litter of single packs, multi-packs, and vehicle sets.
>>9390120Yeah I haven't done 3.75 stuff since I was 10 and this line has been too fun to ignore. Hell, it broke my scale limits so hard that I even got into the Mega Construx stuff too.The variety really is everything.
Unsurprisingly, 1000Toys' Chief got delayed to next month.
>>9390293I imagine he won't actually release until December anyway
>>9390022I'd have liked to buy more of the 3.75 inch stuff but due to Jazwares's shitty international distribution it would end up more cost effective to just collect the 6 inch stuff when importing.
Nicole-458 figure when?
>>9389890Hell yeah, he is
>chrome visor on the halo 2 chief but none of the other onesweird
>>9391205We see the packaged shots. These are probably prototypes. Note how toyish that Chief looks compared to the rest that are all fully painted with fitted pins and the rest. Chief is production, the rest are hand painted.
>>9391205I am not a fan for how lime green they made Halo 2 Chief. At least for the Infinite version his armor is colored pretty brightly in game, but the Halo 2 version was far darker. Closer to how the Gamestop 2 pack one will be. I wish they threw Halo 2 Chief into that 2 pack instead of a repaint of Infinite. Still getting it for that bitching Mark V figure.
>>9391205hoping they chrome Yoroi and Jun like the boxed pictures were showingNot thrilled about Halo 2 Chief's shade of green but I'll get him anyway because I fuckin love Halo 2Now if only we could get a MK V without the Infinite Chief attached to it...
Heads up fellow Canadians, Amazon.ca has the mantis for pre-order for 55.50$. Releasing dec 15
Holy fuck I got lucky at gamestop today, now I just need to track down Emile as everyone else I don't have is Still easily available at msrp
>>9391371I wish the color on the silver armor wasn't so washed out or waxy looking.
>>9391416Yeah the paint is the weakest part of these but honestly for the price I love them, every figure comes with accessories and hands for less than hasbros stuff.
>>9391205The chest on the red spartan looks a lot better here, hopefully it looks similar to that on the release figures and not like snot in that boxed figure we saw.
>>9391205This feels like a scalper paradise.
>>9391371>>9391416I just got 6 and his helmet is a different shade of grey compared to his body armor. Is it supposed to be that way. I don't remember him looking like that in the game?
Just happened to see 6 at my Gamestop too. Swapped his visor with the green and gray one from wave 2.>>9391630It wasn't the case on our Noble Six, but it was the case on Thom, the Noble Six from the live action trailer.
Also got clarification from the brand manager about the visors for the new wave. As we saw in the leaked packaged shots, the finished figures should all be chromed.
>>9391639Is there a new wave 3 of spartans that have the chrome visor, or did you change that yourself?
>>9391661I said in the post that I swapped the visor, anon.
>>9391664Yes you did, but it should go without saying that I am not a very smart person.
Also saw someone on Twitter share this mock-up and man I really hope they go all out with the H2 Chief mold. Really live up to the Joyride days. >>9391670It's okay anon, we all have our days.
>>9391639>It wasn't the case on our Noble Six, but it was the case on Thom, the Noble Six from the live action trailer.Ah okay I thought it looked off from the in game color. That chrome visor looks so good. I gotta try that swap too. Does it just pop off?
>>9391674Shit, they actually looks so good.What are the chances they give us some H2 elites, that would be dangerously kino.
>>9391371Does Palmer have a removable helmet or is that just a separate head
>>9391795Not that anon, but I'm pretty sure it's a separate head.
>>9391795Yeah its separate
>>9389421Checked 2 different stores but they didn't have it (my closest one had the tag for it but nothing there). Ordered it online instead so thanks for the link. Threw in some socks for the free shipping since I needed some anyway lol.
>>9391371How is 6's leg-articulation compared to the generic Mark V? Is it still the same thing?
>>9391735I used a heat gun and a small flathead and wedged it off a bit at a time. Just be careful with it.>>9391784If they do Elites besides Arby then I'm sure they'll go all out. More molds that are easily reusable for recolors is always good for figure lines.
Goddammit when are we gonna get a new Halo 2/3 design Arbiter figure, I really don't wanna shell out $200+ for one on eBay.
>>9392168Hopefully soon. My ideal would be this being his H2A design specifically.
>>9392100No thigh swivel it seems
>>9391674I could see them doing that as a 2 pack like the Halo 1 and infinite chief 2 pack.
>>9392585It would be hyper kino if they released little two packs like these for the 3.75s with the CE/2 sculpt. I would buy them all up.
I haven't been able to get anything halo for almost a year. No one carried anything except like a lone pilot. But I found a mantis. Its beautiful and big. Scorpion and Falcon when?
>>9392202Bad news anon, I saw another leaked post and the description was Arbiter with storm rifle. The only game that had arby and a storm rifle was Halo 5. Unless they absolutely shit the bed with research, looks like we're getting the ridiculously over designed Halo 5 version of him.
>>9378980I hate this look for the brutes.
>>9392693I liked the chieftans but the rest were just discount elites.
>>9392666Damn where do u live?
>>9392697Tbh true, halo 2 brutes were unironically the peak of their design, except for the concept halo 3 brutes probably.
>>9392688Fuuuuuuck say it ain't so, I'll have some hope since it seems like the guys working on the figures seem to have a head on their shoulders and would presumably realize people would want a Halo 2/3 arbiter over a 5 one but we'll see.
>>9392688Ehh I like the Halo 5 armor. It's not that overdesigned. The main problem is his eyes, which hopefully won't carry over to a modern figure.
>>9392716For reference, the same armor but on the H2A Elite design looks much better.
>>9392688Honestly, don't mind that, especially since he was my main in Killer Instinct and that was his default armor.
>>9391205I wasn't even around for Halo 2's release, but this wonderful moment pops into my head anyway
>>9392751Give him a cape and he'll be golden too
>>9392771I've always hated Arbiter's Halo 5 design... but that image might have just sold me on it.
>>9392794Cloaks make anything cool.
>>9392716He's literally the wrong species of Elite. It looks weird. It would be like Chief turning into a black tyranny.
>>9392819Apparently they wanted to have him be the normal type but they ran out of time and resources.Either way I'll take a figure of him.
>>9392716Christ I've never seen a straight up render of him like this, if you showed me this and asked who it was I would have assumed some other high ranked elite that may end up being chiefs new enemy but I wouldn't have guessed that's arbiter.
>>9392716>>9392730>>9392751>>9392771>>9392794Yeah, Arbiter in his “Kaidon” armor (sort of silly, in a way, since now he has two titles, with him being “Kaidon Arbiter”, but still) looked the best in his Halo 2A Blur cutscenes model, in some of the comics, and in some of the concept art. >>9392802Yes, that is very true. I love me some armored and cloak-wearing boys.
>>9392716>>9392751The KI design looks infinitely better.Either way, it's not horrible, but I'm sure they'll venture into old arby designs further down the road.
>>9392688Well you can't just say that without posting the rest of it
>>9392771I think this works so well because a lot of the ornamental designs have been simplified, its pretty good without all the greeble
>>9392688Seems like a big miss considering they're about to make halo 2 chief. You think it'd be obvious to sell a halo 2 arbiter as well.
>>9392688For the love of god tell me this isn't true
>>9393298You could always just wait and see if they do a Halo 2/3 version.
>>9393299We've had to wait all this time for just these few non-Spartan figures and it seems like they're hesitant to do them in the first place.Odds are this will be the only Arbiter figure they make for a long time, if ever.
>>9393528I didn't think of it that wayBut don't lose hope, anything can happen. You just have to believe. It'll work out somehow
>>9392703California. At least the targets are beginning to stock up again. Can't say the same for Walmart
Man, I hope Emille gets reissued. I thought wave 2 would be as easy to find as wave 1 and didn't order him off gamestop when I had the chance.
>>9393683Same, im still missing some easy to get ones but I feel like I may have to overpay for him. Definitely getting all of the new wave asap to avoid this
>>9392688If this is true they are retarded as fuck and basically sabotaging non-Spartan figs in the line
Any new pics of the 1000toys Infinite Chief ever show up? Supposed to release pretty soon.
>>9394028It got delayed to November.
>>9394055Shit, every damn thing this month was pushed to November.Still, I'm surprised they didn't display one at Comicon or Wonfest.
>>9393086This is what I found, I've yet to see any leaks that didn't evetually come true.
>>9394988This looks like a Gamestop exclusive, since the 20th anniversary two pack is listed there.Meanwhile the other Arbiter listing, with an energy sword, was at Target. Means there's a chance for different versions of him still.
In case anyone was curious, noble 6's knife us removable
>>9394988>spartan enemy What the fuck does that mean?Where is this leak from?
>>9394988what do you suppose the star next to the 20th anniversary two-pack is for?
>>9395013>>9395066I would assume the star denotes their exclusive, I kinda doubt they would do both a 2/3 and 5 arby at the same time so I'm willing to bet the other anon is right and that we're getting the 5 arby with a storm rifle as our first.
>>9394988Seems like arby has a sword and a storm rifle, unless they fucked up with that 'S&'
>>9394988>it's actually realThey deserve to lose the license for this alone.
Would you rather >Halo 2/3 Arby but he comes with the Storm Rifle, making it inaccurate Or>Halo 5 Arby
>>9395870Both because people.on here are freaking out for no good reason when it's still early days. If they're comitted to making multiple Master Chiefs, you know they'll make multiple Arbiters to go with the Spartans.Halo Wars Arby when?
>>9395886>you know they'll make multiple ArbitersDo we?Arbiter isn't even close to being as big as Chief, who is pretty much the face of Xbox. Hell, like >>9393528 said it's taken them this long to make non-Spartans at all, and if Arby sells poorly due to being the shitty H5 design they'll probably be turned off from doing more in the future.
>>9395955The Arbiter is, like, the fan favorite character right behind Chief. Figures of him are in high demand in the aftermarket, even the Mattel figure of the H5 design.It's deranged to think people won't buy him, even if it's a less popular iteration of him. It's still the Arbiter. If the toy is good then folks won't be picky, they'll just say "hey can we get the other versions too"
Amazon listing for that other three-pack with a bunch of weapons. Not for sale yet but soon. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08ST5MGWZ/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_TWEN8M7337DR2YYE5RFT
>>9395982I just realized both armory packs come with the same Gungir Spartan. I'm still gonna get both but come on, I'm tired of duplicates
>>9395870H3 Arbiter any day.I hope 1000toys does him.
>>9395982I didn't even know amazon was selling these past wave one.
>>9395982Jazwares "make a plasma rifle in either scale" challenge.
>>9396473To be fair they've just been doing Infinite stuff when it comes to Covies and there's no plasma rifle in Infinite.
>>9395990Agreed. Multiple Chiefs is one thing. But why the fuck would you put two of the same Spartan in the same wave?Ah well, guess he’s going to stay in the box until I decide to try my hand one day at painting figures.
Here's something:If you have the Reach legendary edition statue, the weapons from it seem to scale pretty well with spartan collection figures. Unfortunately, it don't have the specific weapons to compare, but here's Noble Six with Jun's sniper and the rest ofvthe weapons
Anyone have noble 7?
>>9397127U mean this fig?
>>9397550Boof forgot to include the pic lol
>>9397127I have him with open box
>>9397553I remember those. I got a ton of the Reach Elites when they went on clearance at tru. That was back when Todd couldn't make up his mind on scale.
>>9395955Well, it's called the "Spartan Collection" not the "Elite Collection"
Are the 3 3/4" World of Halo figures any good? I quite liked the idea of getting a bunch of figures and vehicles, and if they're the same size as other 3 3/4" lines then that's a bonus.
>>9398876They look ok, I did wonder if they were floppy or something.
>>9398876They're honestly really great, my only problem with them is that I'm addicted and have bought everything up to the current wave
If they do a bungie line I buy EVERY figure they make. Where can I preorder that CE grunt/chief pack?
>>9379504The tiddies look like bluetooth headphones
>>9398876Tbh some of the best halo figs to be made imo >>9399402Nah they fairly solid, never had any of the qc problems the 6.5s had.
>>9399769Don't think it's up for pre-order, the only one you can pre-order so far is the 6.5 chief 2 pack on gamestop
>>9400435I hope we get a CE Chief as a separate release down the line. I already have an Infinite Chief I don't really want another one.
>>9401535Wow, I’m shocked how nice that looks
>>9399402They're very sturdy, I can't imagine the ones I have getting floppy in the future.
>>9401535Damn that's pretty fucking nice looking, how much do you think it'll go for?
>>9401590>>9401862that's a render, hopefully it looks as good in physical form though
>>9401219You could scratch off or paint over the “117” on his chest and make him into a generic Spartan. Maybe add additional details to make him different too.
>>9402277I don't know, I feel like I'd fuck it up But hell I might get the 2 pack anyway and see how it goes
HotMore pics herehttps://www.instagram.com/p/CVatvlrBFmz/?utm_medium=copy_link
>>9405072Looks real good, but god those knees...
>>9405072Wow this really looks good.
>>9405399They are ugly but honestly I think its worth it for the poseability
>>9405072looking good. Will definitely grab one.
Finally picked up Kat and she is simultaneously the best and worst figure. Probably the best paint and detail on any of the ones I have and the spartan laser looks great but the face sculpt is bad and while mine has the back peg the waist is loose like most. Never gonna display without helmet though so don't care about the other headsculpt.
>>9405072Ngl didn't really care for the figure at first but seeing it outside of the box, now that's based
>>9401535That looks way better than the boomco needler I have. Is that line even still around?
>>9406848Aw look, she has some Space Marine frens :D
Two more multipacks coming.
>>9409150Eh, blue elite looks better and the purple grunt just looks goofy>>9409154Alright now these recolors are based as hell lmao, love the desert camo. Looks like they also recolored the AR n BR
Wonder when we'll start seeing Skimmers and Harbinger show up
>>9409150Yes! Give me that red elite. I need it!>>9409154Sweet, a marine builder multi-pack that doesn’t give you a Chief. Going to need at least 2 of these.
