I will forever be salty the only high end halo stuff we got was 3A which did an absolutely horrific job and 1000toys which has a track record of being 50/50 weebshit trash and great but tiny.I've never cared for Hot Toys but seeing photos of their Iron Man line kills me to think of the missed opportunity.
i love the WoH line so goddamn much. i gave up on the vintage collection after the quality pretty much took a nosedive post-black series while the price get going up.now at this rate i'm going to have an army of spartans to match my troopers.
>>9727471I need more vehicles, and I REALLY need them to release a hornet or falcon.
>>9727457the 1000toys infinite chief is definitely not tiny.
>>9727471Compared to the spartan collection, the WoH line is miles better. Who ever thought we'd get a mantis this early within the series? Tons of accessories and mix of UNSC and Covenant figures makes this line one of my favorite lines.
>>9727503I feel like he was talking more about 1/6
>>9727431I got my 1000Toys Chief in last week and it’s absurd how good this figure is. Sometimes I just articulate it different ways to watch all the little parts move around to accommodate extra articulation.
>>9727431Bro would it kill you to clean your desk?
Should I buy Spartan Palmer?
>>9728374I've been busy with work+ that PC build, plus I'm replacing the desk soon.No it wouldn't kill me but I also don't care. It's just dust
>>9728696Looks like cat or dog hair too. It'll get into your components.
>>9728429Yes. Buy it from your local Target so that it stops pegwarming and so your store can finally order a new case
>>9728000dammit makes me want to get one but im a cheap bastard sometimes lol... >>9727431Also what edition is this? Graphics card edition lmao?
>>9727431Got my 1000Toys Chief on the way, had to get the deluxe version since he has started selling out. I actually prefer the classic blue energy sword though, what would be the easiest way to get a proper 1/12 blue sword that fits his hand?
>>9729093Well she's cheap rn and I want her pistols for my 1000toys Chief. So win-win I guess.
>>9729355>I actually prefer the classic blue energy sword though, what would be the easiest way to get a proper 1/12 blue sword that fits his hand?Buy a jazwares that comes with one? The sword will look cheaper, and its a tad bit smaller.
I wish mega construx would rely less on making custom pieces for every set and more on already existing blocks. Seems so tacky.
>>9730425Yeah takes away from the satisfaction when building it, esp when it's one big ass solid custom brick. Like sure it makes the sets look more appealing/accurate but eh.
>>9729093>my Target is still pegwarming with H2 MCs and olderFeels bad man
>>9729355IMO both the blue and red energy swords look like shit, the only negative of the entire figure, so its better to get the DX for the extra guns which do kick ass
>>9731067Same but i did see a CEA MC among the pile of H2 MCs at my target last time I checked. Unfortunately the rogue spartan and Jorge had already been swiped.
>>9728429Why the fuck did they choose to make a toy of this horrendous character
>>9731628They didn´t want to spoil you Agryna
Is jazwares Series 3 Chief really as bad as people say? (besides the visor)
>>9731628I can think of 2 reasons.
>>9731628Probably wanted to make a halo 4 character but your options are pretty limited, it was either her, chief or generic Spartan 4. Can't really remember any other characters assuming you did meet any.
Target listed the new waves:ODST: https://www.target.com/p/halo-odst-buck-4-34-action-figure/-/A-83762674?fbclid=IwAR0pny09BP5ytsI-y-tqVcAAHQmFh1OfndxqZDTicl41n1PfP0cMiMJw34MGrunt https://www.target.com/p/halo-grunt-grenadier-with-plasma-grenades-4-34-action-figure/-/A-83762639?fbclid=IwAR3qsBAdDjjb1vbnPqXLMvPGemJMEnfNclHLa0epmBwA0blWoptNPtD_fvcArbiter: https://www.target.com/p/halo-arbiter-thel-39-vdam-with-energy-sword-4-34-action-figure/-/A-83762682?fbclid=IwAR3NpyLYPDc_UFjgoTiAQr6aXZFB7XBks97G0p3qTXDoI_I1j3YmxZyD2LYSGT Johnson: https://www.target.com/p/halo-sgt-johnson-with-assault-rifle-4-34-action-figure/-/A-83762699?fbclid=IwAR2ehIu56ejDFsr32o1p8t0Y6lYrbtnJ5ga2L8nP1fOZrfvNza9kyF2J07w
>>9732171Interesting that they're claiming that ODST is buck
>>9732187That's probably Target's doing just for name recognition. He's just labeled ODST in packaging.
>>9732171Really hoping Johnson and ODST look better in 6"
>>9732371How tf did u get lemme have that ce chief n grunt senpai
>>9732214Looks like a Halo 3's ODST
>>9732421I got the email alert from target and surprisingly they hadn't already sold out in the first 10 minutes. they must have put up more than just a handful this time
>>9732171Johnson's face actually looks really good for 3.75. Something about he elite looks weirdly cheap, though.
>>9732460>Something about he elite looks weirdly cheap, though.it's probably due to all the pics showing the face directly from the front, plus the lack of pupils giving him a sort of cute goofy look. I have the gold version from the warthog and aside from the face looking silly head-on it's one of the best elite figures imo
>>9732422Nope those are halo 2 pants
>>9732161The Spartan Ops Spartans, like Thorne and all them. And Laskey. And everyone’s favorite character, Captain (formerly) Del Rio.
>>9729809>>9729825Yeah just finding another cheap figure with one seems to be the play. Some interesting stuff on Etsy, I always forget about it >>9731158I was kinda thinking the same thing. You would think there would be a bigger market for 1/12 halo accessories. Warhammer guys seem to be doing well
I need a high quality 1000toys tier hunter figure
>>9733148I wouldn´t mind an H5 Arby, but if they do a H2/3 Arby I hope is the silver one
>>9732759I shoulda specified Spartans cause that's all we were getting from the Spartan collection at the time, did Thorne and the others wear unique armor? It's been so long since I played halo 4 all I remember for Spartans was palmer and generic looking 4s.
I redeemed my gamestop points for a $15 coupon and it won't work on Jun because he's on sale for like a dollar off already. FUCK
>>9733423That's really Jewish of GameStop's but he's basically 5 bucks off from where he should actually be, don't know why his non sale price says 17 bucks.
>>9733362Well, Thorne wore blue Recruit armor, but, in Halo 5, before he was replaced by Buck, his armor would’ve looked a little more unique.
is the CE grunt figure the most precious thing conceivable by man?
I want an RC warthog
>>9727431What the fuck keys are red?
>>9734145lefties play with IJKL
>>9734151Lefties are subhuman
>>9734151>>9734161YGWNBR & fuck Putin
>>9733677The concept art for Thorne as a member of Osiris looks to be the recruit armor still.
>>9733485it's a really good price, i just thought i'd be able to use these points. I just wound up buying it full price and using the coupon to get Sekiro for $7
>>9734201Christ all fucking mighty what were they thinking with those armor designs, I know they couldn't exactly go back on them after halo 4 but it's like they doubled down on how over designed the suits look.
>>9734231There are a couple stand outs that look really good to me, like Locke and Vale. It makes sense for elite Oni operatives to have this advanced next-gen technology, but not blue team who are all Spartan IIs. The multiplayer armors were just flat out godawful. I think if they'd have introduced just a few characters with this new art direction it would have helped establish creative continuity instead of feeling like everything fans liked about the aesthetics was being thrown out the window. Thankfully Infinite pivoted and IMO has the best looking armors in the series.
>>9734310I had to look up lockes armor cause I forgot how he looks and it's okay but man he looks like he belongs in lost planet 2 as part of the nevec faction. I did like infinites armors but it's cause they took hard inspiration from reach which is fair enough cause I think that game had the best looking armor in the series, judging by those armors posted in the last thread for season 2 of infinites online though they're still messing up in terms of keeping with that art style but they're also doing a live service game so they're gonna have to keep pumping armors into the game and are gonna run into that problem eventually.
Holyyyy crappppp..... did Russia predict AKs being in the Halo TV show 60 years in advance..... Master Queef's bakelite.....
>>9734100I WANT THEM I WANT THEM
>>9734135They made a couple of those like 10+ years ago. They were pretty shit, I had one. I'm sure someone out there makes/sells a printed body kit or something for an actually decent RC car already on the market.
>>9734337>he looks like he belongs in lost planet 2 as part of the nevec faction.Oh heck, haha, you’re right, he does! It’s probably the “veins” that the suit has, and the color. Speaking of which, Lost Planet 2 is very nice. The servers are still up on the 360 version (which is also playable on Xbox One and Series X) too.
>>9735456I miss the shit out of that game, I should try to see if it works on PC at all. But yea the suit and the helmet with the blue glowing visor really give that look, doesn't help one of the pictures I saw was presumably the McFarlane figure which had a really pronounced forehead on the helmet which was another trademark of the nevec soldiers.
This is going to be the closest I get to a fallout power armor I feel.
>>9735784How are they so bad at getting the halo art style? Like that looks cool sure but I would peg that as a Warhammer design over a halo one.
>>9735842It's from the next fractures event. Just like yoroi, it's not supposed to be a very halo style.
>>9735855Honestly yoroi while being a departure still screamed halo to me in the same vein as Hayabusa back in halo 3.
>>9735886That's probably because of exactly that, you feel yoroi is fine because we've already had an armor like it before.Hayabusa was literally just ripped our of ninja gaiden with very few changes, it was the absolute least halo armor piece you could think of in 2007. You remember the armor fondly because, well, nostalgia.It was a cool armor, in the same sense that yoroi is a cool armor, as is this.>>9735784
>>9735784If it weren't for the halo logo I'd have thought it was an armored guardsman from WH40k. As someone who hasn't played any halo game past CE I'd argue that the yoroi still has a very recognizable spartan helmet. Still looks really cool, I hope jazwares makes one to go with my joytoys.
>>9735889Nah I think you're not giving Bungie enough credit, Hayabusa was obviously inspired by ryu Hayabusas head but it got significant changes like the vents on the side of the mouth to make it larger and more helmet like so it wouldn't look out of place in the halo 3 art style. Helmets like EOD and rogue that were similar departures from the more standard looking helmets in the game also helped it not look quite so put of place, seems clear to me there was consideration when it came to putting it in the game or at least it seemed that way with how well it blends in. I mean it also helped that outside the chest, shoulders and helmets it shared the rest of the body with every other Spartan cause you couldn't really customize them.
It's hard to see but the Serina in this set looks really cute
>>9735915Maybe, it certainly helps that all armors were just Mk6 with some different shit stapled on top of it.It still doesn't take away from the fact that it was a very non-halo armor, at least in canon, which bring me back to the fact that the fracture armors are purposely made to look like they don't belong (at least all of the leaks do) in halo.
>>9736361I'm okay with Fractures except for the fact it makes the player model look bigger than it actually is making things ever so slightly confusing when firing at someone running away around a corner. Since that issue will never go away Zaku II inspired Fracture design when?
>>9736522Entirely possible since someone at 343 is clearly a Gundam fan.
>>9735919very cute indeed, is this an upcoming set?
>>9736858Yeah it's the fire team warthog
I want to love the WOH stuff, but good god is it impossible to find. My targets did a restock in february, and there's been nothing since. I just need fred and an EOD.
I've noticed these tiny scuffs on the top of my 1000toys Master Chief and they're really pissing me off.
>>9737545wouldn't hurt to try walmart if you haven't already, as well as meijer if you have one
>>9737656No Meijers near me, and the two Walmarts have just been a wasteland since Christmas. Shit is depressing.
>>9737648It can be that Chief just bonked his head. Or you can pretend it’s when Atriox bonked him on the noggin for being horny for the blue/purple lady.
Where's Spartan Collection Vale, Wicked Cool Toys? I wanna make a Samus in Mjolnir custom before Figma Dread Samus releases!
>>9737666Dam bro where you live lol>>9737835Tbhhonest that figure would prob look a lot better with a couple more scuffs. My only gripe about it, too dang clean.>>9737992Wouldn't be surprised within the next series or 2, no leaks or confirmation yet. If that Samus figure already has a release date then yeah that Samus figure coming out first lol.
>>9736361>purposely made to look like they don't belong in halo"and that's a good thing"
>>9737648It's just battle damage.
I want a high quality 1/12 scale escharum figure to go with my 1000toys Master Chief.
>>9739389I just want a 1000 toys classic Arbiter. Or generic elite even.
>>9739455that would be extremely based
>>9740708Any big huge ayyy lmao with cool armor would be based. I'm partial to the H3 brutes
>>9740833I regret not getting the mcfarlane chieftain back in the day. Such a beautiful mold n paint apps. Derpy face is brownie points lol.
>>9739455Would cum and shit my pants
>>9740953How dows the old mcfarlane stuff scale with WoH?
>>97411501-3 = 4.5" so tower properly over 1/18thReach and beyond went above 5" as they scaled up with a higher price. WoH will be smaller than 1-3
>>9741173Aliens (not Grunties) should be fine with the scale. It's more noticable for Spartans
>>9739455Do you think they'll do more figures with 1000toys?
>>9741408Infinite Chief sold well enough to get a reissue, so it's very possible.
>>9741150>>9741173McFarlane's stuff scales better than the WCT stuff.Not too bothered by the WCT aliens being undersized, because they're aliens and they can be any size. Still, the McFarlane's Brutes actually articulate better and look a hundred times nicer.
Bros I finally got one and I'm cooooooming, even tho it's the CEA design and it's a light ass green the sculpt on this guy is so nice and the articulation is miles better than the spartan collection one it's so good, i added in some dark gray paint around bis belly, thighs and the backs of his calfs to closer match the color placement of the original design, added a 3d printed AR and im sold guys, WOH is the future and the six inch line is fucking junk. It's further cemented as I picked up the Kelly at target and it's actually just junk it's somehow worse than I could have ever imagined, articulation is fine on her but it just feels terribleSpartan collection sucks jazzwares turn that ship around or it'll end up like your 6 inch fortnite line, dead and buried
>>9741410I paid scalper prices because I didn't know we'd get a reissue and I ain't even mad.
Jazwares, please make this ASAP
>>9735784>>9742013>We're putting literal fascist shit in Halo nowJust saying the quiet part loud, I guess. I hate it here.
>>9742063And that's a good thing
>>9742113Keep crying about it, I'll enjoy my Jin Roh armor core
>>9742063blow it outta your ass.
>>9742095>saw 1000toys Chief in-person at Game Stop going for $180 the other day>saw the visor and noped outI still thinks its funny the WCT Infinite Chief is a 6/10 that is brought up to a 7/10 due to the chrome visor alone meanwhile the 1000toys is a 8/10 instead of a 10/10 due to the lackluster visor and no attempt at all to have Mcfarlane style shading and grit.
>>9742194Really? I love the dual visor look with the clear visor in front of the glossy orange. Gives it a lot of depth.
>>9742198Since when does Chief's visor have depth? Has it not always a single curved layer of material? The fact you can see the clear layer in every single photo makes it look bad to me. Plus the color is a coppery orange when Chief has always had either a perfectly chrome gold or reflective gold visor.
>>9742013Fucking hell man that's basically a hellghast soldier from killzone mixed with a cog from gears. Hell I'd buy a figure of it but Jesus man.
>>9742288>hellghast soldier from killzoneThat's what it was, I was trying to remember what it looked like.
Does anyone know what's changed between the first world of halo chief and the wave 4(?) one? I know some of the other spartans have different necks and wrist hinges, but I'm going to try to do some customs and I'd like to know if the newer one is worth tracking down before I start.
>>9742288>HellghastI think you mean Keberos Cop.
>>9742908Newer Chiefs have worse knees, worse ankles, no butterfly joints and slightly different coloring that you'll either like or hate.
>>9742941I'll never stop loving Oshii's work. Great influence
>>9739131I still await either Dread Samus or Spartan Vale this year. For now I'll just have to have my MC hang with my cyborg wasp woman, Bun-chan. (no stands were involved in the making of pic related)
>>9743030I think he's reffering to the small scale stuff not the dreadful ass 6 inch line>>9742908In terms of quality the only downgrade between series 1 thru 4 of master chief is visor quality, and they had a massive uptick in quality with the anniversary 4 pack where the visor is a separate piece, so now it won't have such awful color bleed, but those are currently hard to come by, but if you're doing customs or something Definitely ve getting a series 2-4 version because they have an improved elbow over the series 1Pic related is my lightly modded series 1 next to the anniversary 4 pack chief
Jazwares has no excuse at this point for how godawful their distribution has been for this line, especially outside of the US. Every other company is putting out their figures pretty much as normal and yet they seem to be the only ones struggling for whatever reason.
I love this thing so much I'm ordering a second one.Also they must have some crazy anti-static thing going on with this figure because I've had it for four months displayed on my desk and it barely collects any dust.
>>9742063Its a game series where you play a brainwashed child soldier cyborg who was kidnapped by the space CIA explicitly to put down protestors rebels and insurrectionists, fits perfectly into halo
>>9743788You really look you're having fun with those boring statuesque poses. At least with something a little cheaper I don't have to be afraid when it takes a tumble while doing dynamic poses
>>9743906Thats one of the most clunky awkward poses I've ever seen. At least use the full range of motion if a figure has it.
>>9743906>>9743906That's why I'm ordering another one, for storage, so I can feel safe having fun with this one. I've already damaged the top of the head and its left shoulder pad.
What do you guys think of the elites? I'm happy they can stand on their own and can hold their weapons. That said my elite warlord had some really loose joints and I overall wasn't very happy with that figure. I was worried that all of them would be shit but I was surprised with the elite mercenary. Have any of you been able to find the elite ultra? I was thinking about buying it online but it's going for almost 30 dollars when I was looking.
>>9743921Ngl anon ordering 2 of a 150+ import figure just so you can have one as a backup is a bit wild to me. Just be careful with it
>>9743906Thanks for posting a toy pic but next time leave the poorfag cope out of the post
>>9743926The elite mercenary is my favorite, the only thing that I hate is the neck joint.
>>9743906Cease the intake of oxygen brick poser
>>9744217>That astolfo toyYou fuck traps, don't you?
>>9744240The Pantsahat videos have basically made Astolfo and Master Chief a duo of sorts
>>9744240It's 2022 old man, you ain't?
>>9744281I love those videos.
Here's another shitty shelf shot for you all.
>>9744217>>9744346>>9744351>doesn't post the good shit unless challengedHate me all you want. I just wanted someone with a 1000toys Chief to post some pics clearly having fun instead of doing mediocre vanilla poses while gushing over it.
>>9744401Just contributing to the thread, man. No need to keep arguing.
Spartan Collection because.
>>9743926So far I’ve only got Ultra and Warlord, I like them so far.I really want Mercenary but never seen it in the wild and I’m still bumped about missing Jega
>>9744673not sure where you are, but the Jega 2-pack is still shelfwarming here
>>9742013>>9742288>>9742439>>9742941Speaking of the Helghast, did they, or any of the Killzone characters/troops ever get any action figures? I figure that, at most, the basic Helghast infantry (the most recognizable thing from all of Killzone, I presume) would at least have a figurine or a statuette. Even Needles Kane/Sweet Tooth (“Sweet Tooth” was actually the name of his weaponized ice cream truck, but everyone kept calling the character “Sweet Tooth”, so they decided just to call him both names) had an action figure/movable statuette (it had really limited movement, and it was mostly in a preset pose, sort of like those really early Halo CE toys, where the marine figures were mostly pre-posed). Well, I sort of answered my own questions but looking it up. Looks like there’s a limited movement figure for the Helghast Assault Infantry and the Helghast Sniper (in their designs from Killzone 2 and 3, since the snipers from the first game and Killzone: Liberation have a more “lightweight” design).
>>9742063Um, the games are literal fascist propaganda, sweetie.
>>9744217I spy, with my little eye, something feminine, but not female! Also, based, for the femboy figure.>>9744281>>9744346They are nice vids. They also like using Toa Tahu Mata, which is nice, because Bionicle is cool.
>>9744858Where is here?I’m in the land of tacos btw
>>9744952Ontario, but we haven't gotten wave 4 of SC yet either, so I guess we're on the slow end of restocking
>>9744673Nigga really has a stand of kitanas lmao
>>9743906>>9744401I hope you don't consider these poses good.
>>9744922And that Bionicle is the best character.>bruh, you might be the international house of pancakes, but this violence is gonna be domestic
I wish Bandai kept making these kits.
If you have the means to do SLA 3d printing, there's a halo archive discord server that has 80% of the models from all the halo games available to download and use for various things, you can dump the models into blender and export as an .STL and 3d print them, I did the halo 1 sniper, the Halo 1 SPNKr and a handful of frags, I plan on doing the shotgun, magnum, and flood infection forms by the hoards
And thankfully, because the size of stuff in halo is pretty well documented, it's only a few short calculations to get everything down to the right scale, and because most of the weapon models have proper rigging you could theoretically print them in all separate parts at a larger scale to have removable mags and moving parts
Forgot to attach the pic dammitWith a tiny bit of adjustment tho you could print a SPNKr with a movable front handle, hinging top, and rotating/removable barrels
>>9737992Dame, those colors really make her look thicc.
EVERYBODY WAS KUNG FU FIGHTING HOI
>>9745814>>9745811This is insanely cool. I have a resin printer, cant wait to make some halo guns
>>9745817This Master Chief is close to being perfect if he just looked a little less fat. I still wanna grab him though
>>9744910I have a toy of the Sniper, idk why though. I'm pretty certain I got it as a giveaway from some playatation event. Its kinda cool, its half holographic like he's uncloaking like the Predator. I didnt really like Killzone but I like that guy.
>>9744522What are you using for the muzzle flare effct on the Chief's AR there? Looks like a Mezco piece but not entirely sure.
>>9746283thankfully i have just modification for you, just cut out the part right about the puches and remove enough material from his waist and sink it in so it fits and rotates and its exactly as it should be
>>9747163This looks great anon, I might have to buy this chief to try this
>>9745350>responding to bait that admits its baitHe was baiting 1000toys Chief owners to show off some dynamic posing.
>>9747629Considering he posts the same 5 dogshit pictures every thread, I'm not so sure lolMaybe he just wants some inspiration or something
Realistically, what are the chances 1000toys does more halo toys, and more specifically all of noble team?
>>9748757Just what we all want, ANOTHER company putting out the exact same 6 figures over multiple years while nobody unique gets made. If they stay at around the $150 price, would you really be willing to spend over $900 to own all of them? Shit, if they did sell at that price then you could get the entire team via the Spartan Collection for the price of one of the 1000Toys
>>9745817dude, just re-model it lmao.just load the model and make a new model over it, its much better than dealing with 2001 video game polycounts.
>>9748933You could have just said "I'm a poorfag" and avoided writing all that shit.
>>9748933>1000toys comes out with H2 or H3 Arbiter>he can actually stand on his own feet and comes with almost every Covenant weapon from H2/H3>meanwhile the terribly designed Kaidon Vadam by WCT topples over constantly and only comes with a tang flavored energy swordIts about competition. If 1000toys released a H2/H3 Chief I'd be all over it since its my favorite Mark armor set.
>>9749050I guess. I just can’t stand the thought of yet another company doing Noble Team when so many other characters are neglected.
>>9749216There's zero difference between halo 2/3 chief and halo infinite chief. It's the same suit.
>>9749494Nice bait. The shoulders, feet, and overall proportions are different. WCT just released a Halo 2 Chief with a completely new mold. If the designs were identical why would WCT do that?
>>9749804Because they're dumb. Look at them side by side. The only differences is in extra detailing in Halo infinite.
Guys stop bullying
Chief's kinda got a fat butt
>>9749494Theyre extremely similar, but there's some notable differences if you look at the chest, shoulders and feet and porpotuons, Chief is built more like a Space Marine than he has been before. I like the Infinite suit, even if its a bit regressive, its leagues better than the 4/5 design
the more damaged halo toys are the more lived-in they feel.
>>9749885the shoulder armor is just straight up a different design lol
>>9749932Is the armour he wears still supposed to be Mjolnir Mark 6? I fucking hated that in Halo 4 his armour completely changes design and instead of it being mark 7 its mark 6 that had "namomachines' upgrade it. And then i guess he changed back for infinite, not that infinite would do anything to reference another game, or attempt to continue a trilogy
>>9749940Chief's armor in Halo 4 is considered Mark 6 MOD GEN 1, which is the one canonically modified by Cortana which is dumb as shit. In Halo 5 I believe its the same suit, or a different suit but of the same variation, upgraded to GEN 2. In infinite that's considered the GEN 3 version of Mark 6. Mark 4/5, and were both a part of GEN 1. Mark 6 of course started off as GEN 1 as well.
>>9749932No it's not, it's just thinner in halo 2/3
>>9749974I have no idea how anyone defends the 343 games when one of the literal first lines of dialogue is a braindead asspull like that
Do they even explain the change in infinite or is it like everything else where it just never gets brought up
>>9750008And then you get scenes like thishttps://youtu.be/o-4r_5AE6D4
>>9750013Pretty sure it's just written in one of the books that they got new armor.>>9750008It's worse than that, unless I'm misremembering there's nothing in game to explain it. The only reason we have that explanation is one of the devs gave that as the answer cause he was butthurt people were even asking the question of why it was different.
>>9750008I mean they never actually explained the design change in the game, for the first year or two it was largely accepted as just a stylistic change, like everything else in that game. But then slowly but surely 343 started doubling down in their retardation and started giving every little change a canon explanation. The whole nano-bot modifications thing was first brought up by Frank O'Connor in some random interview. Should have just always been explained as a stylistic change so we could have moved on and forgotten about those god awful designs without any strings attached.
>>9749995His shoulder armor in infinite is literally directly pulled from his design in The Package lol.
>>9750065You know looking back the pure laziness of not making a model of the MKVI to keep the story consistent should have been a huge red flag at the incompetence we would come to see from 343.
>>9750065>it was largely accepted as just a stylistic change, like everything else in that gameand it really should have stayed that way. obviously 343 is dumb for pandering to autistic lorefags who need an explanation for every tiny detail but sometimes it feels like writers do it just to get them to shut the fuck up
>>9750074And it's the worst part about the design
>>9750106Yeah, you have retards like hiddenxperia and all his reddit fags wanting to know the canon explanation for the most obscure shit or their whole world is upside down, its annoying. Just shut the hell up and enjoy the games, you don't need to know if the chief is circumcised or not.
>>9749885>>9749932Thank you. Fuck that guy who says they're the same.
>>9750195>HURR DURR ITS DIFFERENT BECAUSE DA SHOULDER PADS ARE 2 CM THICK INSTEAD OF 5 CM AND DA LINES ARE BLURRIER BECAUSE OF SHITTY HARDWARE LIMITATIONSretard
>>9750328you're right anon, they're exactly the same. there are absolutely no differences between them, not even minor ones. you can take your pills and go to bed now, you've won
>>9750345The differences are so minor it can be easily chaulked up to simply updating the design for higher graphical fidelity and more accurate human proportions. Much in the same way there are minor differences between halo 2 and 3 chief.
>>9749879Someone has to. Halo Infinite erased all the Spartan booty. They have Hank Hill butts now.
>>9749885Also, another thing is that they seemingly kept his Halo 4/5 design for his feet in Halo Infinite, because they still wanted their “personal mark” on Chief.
>>9750145>you don't need to know if the chief is circumcised or not.I would like to know. But he probably is circumcised, let’s be honest here.
>>9750457>they seemingly kept his Halo 4/5 design for his feet in Halo InfiniteDefinitely not.
>>9750470my boy chief got fucking neutered
here's your 1000toys Halo 3 Master Chief, bro
>all those replies talking trash yet not posting pics of their figsYou sure showed me guys. Respect to that homie dishing out all those 1000toys Chief pics and customization tips for WCT CEA Chief.
>>9750476The silhouette of it.
>>9735919I wonder when being able to recreate Red's armors and Warthog will be a thing. Totally forgot MB/MC was still doing Halo.
>>9745456Still surprises me that they never made the Prototype suit. It seems like the most appropriate choice for such a line and it was made under 343's ownership so it's not like it was a matter of ego.
>>9745811>>9745817Great thinking. You'll probably be able to reproduce the look in-game. Eventually.
>>9749885Infinite's armor is 343 executing more appropriately on their talk of wanting to make it feel more like a walking tank.
>>9750368Are you the same retard who can't tell the difference between some random GI Joe in a motocross helmet and the Master Chief?
>>9751231how mad are you that most people think its incredibly generic and don't really notice the minor differences?
>>9751599You could've just said yes.
>>9751209>I wonder when being able to recreate Red's armors and Warthog will be a thing.In non-Mega form, or in any form? Because they’ve released versions of Jerome, Alice, and Douglas a few different times in Mega. In the single character packs and included in sets, if I remember correctly. And they even have their numbers on their chest and the the different emblems they have in their shoulders.
>>9750956What were they thinking?
>>9752553Man this looks terrible in the wrong angles. He looks completely inorganic.
I need a big escharum toy
>>9752553I don't know man.The concept art at the very least looked a little bit better, even if he was still pretty thin in places.
>>9752553>>9752912Man, the angle and pise they took of that thing are so unfair, it does have some odd proportions, but at least it's a functional figure and pretty close in color to what it's meant to represent, granted my jazzwares CEA chief is pretty heavily modded, so it's a bit closer in competition, but most of you fags won't even cut a trigger finger let alone rebuild the knees from scratch and squish the belly in, so you gotta take what you can get
>>9753069Nah man sorry a figure that costs that much has no business looking that bad. If its getting mogged by a 20$ action figure its a mess
>>9752553>implying left looks good
>>9753069Jesus Christ I never realized the 1000toys one had such a small head, it really looks off
>>9753069Why will nobody give us the right shade of green brosAlso list of mods on CE chief?
>>9753186Well fuck, I'm posting from mobile and I just wanna say I fucking hate 4chan and it's faggot weeb banner ads that delete your entire fucking post. Fucking faggot weebs. Go fuck yourself /jp/2. Guy on reddit, perfect chief color vallejo olive gold, haven't tested it myself but it looks perfect I'll repost his pic in a minute.3. Chief modsCopied my 1/18 torso mod, sink the belly into the black midsection above the beltRedesigned the knees from scratch, modeled the parts in tinkercad and printed them on an ender 3, was aiming to copy the joint pattern from the 1/18 and got pretty close, need to find a way to get a smaller space diaper on him tho, since the OOB one is absolutely huge and gets in the way horribly
>>9753246I forgot to mention the chest piece, cut out those fucking disgusting skintags on his chest so it looks more like the original game instead of the shitty CEA model, it also frees up his fucking arms to rotate and push in further for better weapon holdingPic related is that dude from the halo action figures subreddit he says it's vallejo gold olive, with a light black wash then a light silver dry brush. Bit it's nearly spot on so I'm gonna try it
>>9753246Yeah that space diaper gives him a real fuckin fat gunt it's off putting. Mind posting the .stl for those knee joints?
>>9734100we must go smaller
>>9737992>no portmanteau of Vale and Variamissed opportunity
>>97414991/18-ish figures have always been the optimal size for shithead bean-counters to actually allow qualityalso they're kinonice fig and nice digits
>>9753289Fuck the joyride mini figs were so damn cute I need more
>>9752183I should've been specific, my bad. But I meant in Infinite. At least we didn't have to wait for their introduction to get Jerome's in the Spartan Collection.
Not my favorite looks in the series, but I'd take them over a lot of what we have gotten.
so i noticed chief was using my old airsoft gun in Halo TV during a flashbackthey also use these as props in The Expanse (woth a big foregrip/etc)it's not a replica, but rather a frame designed to bullpup a standard aegand now it's a halo gun even more than it was for me back then/blog
>>9753251These paintjobs are great. I thought that Chief was a mcfarlane one, I'll have to try this. Will post progress
>>9753289Oh man im nuts for that mini joyride chief
Is 70$ for a 1000toys mark v chief decent?
>>9753352better pic from the show, you can see the halo paintjob kinda, plus halo props, minus lame chief
>>9753246>>9753251Very based anon, excited to see the final product
What you wantin on figures?https://youtu.be/rFSlUj1YqpgI need me the CE/Reach medpack hip attatchment
>>9750975It's probably because you're such an unpleasant person to interact with, nobody wants you to reply to their posts with your pictures. You should take a permanent break from the thread and see if people start posting pictures again.On an aside, will Jazwares ever stop including gray disruptors and energy swords with every figure? Can't believe we're six waves in with one commando and no battle rifles.
>>9753743There's the 343 I know, at most I would want the 2 on the far right but Christ all mighty do none of these really stand out as looking great to me.
>>9753743Helghast in the middle there lookin ok i guessI kinda like the guy second to the right
>>9753743The 2nd blue guy from the right and middle for me. They look like they can fit in any Scifi universe.Also am I the only one who thinks these spartans look kinda weird running around armor plates strapped on to basically cargo pants.
>>9754022Staten is sayin Lone Wolves are mode remote and independent operators ( think Grey team or the Headhunters) and are often forced to scavenge supplies or make field repairs. That said the 2on the left look like clean mark VII armor cores.
>>9753743343 is obsessed with making Halo look like everything but halo
>>9753743These look like a line of dollar tree action figures
>>9753743They're pretty cool but I vastly prefer the more classic look of the Mark VII, it's a perfect design IMO. I'll probably pick up one of each of the new armor cores. If they do WOH versions of them I'll definitely get more.
My most recent SC custom
>>9754403damn that kicks ass, are those printed parts?
>>9754409Yeah they're sold by marcelodavidcustoms on etsy, I think his prices are really decent and the prints are of fairly high quality compared to his competition
>>9753743First and third on the right look pretty nice, I also like the third from the left, helmet looks kind of like ODST++. Also, pretty sure the second in the right is just >>9735784
>>9753743They look like TItanfall Pilots
>>9753262https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5371913/filesthis is ported straight over from tinker cad onto thingiverse the shorter one is there for no reason, i think i was trying to model a shorter joint but ended up not needing it
>>9754071That honestly sounds like a really weak explanation with how much goes into making a Spartan. We never got this kind of look from the actual headhunters who were going on suicide missions constantly did we? Like I have a hard time imagining a wound so sever the Spartan has to essentially strip off all their leg armor and strap on some of the plates to some pants but are still fine enough to walk around and continue their mission.
>>9755541Well how many headhunters have we ever seen that weren't instantly killed in their mission right after being deployed? They're deeplore cuts that have showed up maybe a couple times in the decade since they began being used. These new Spartans don't even really have the patchwork stuff going on either, for the most part it's just strapping on trophies or taping supplies onto their original armor. Ammo, medkit, etc. are all consumable resources that they'd actually have to scavenge for.
>>9755541I'm not saying it was a good explanation just that's what was given. For the Head Hunters I think we have only seen 3 in canon so far Roland and Jonah from the short story and the one that killed Avu'med Telcam for Osman.
>>9755924Wasn't noble 6 also a head hunter before joining noble? I seem to recall some wank about him being a really really good head hunter that kept coming back from suicide missions.>>9755676My issue is moreso with the Spartans that look like they're just wearing a pair of pants with some armor strapped than the Spartans who looked fully armored up but have shit attached to the armor. Second from the right is especially egregious in my eyes since he just looks like a dude in pants and a shirt with plates strapped on and a plate carrier that just doesn't vibe with my idea of what Spartans should be. Even if you're sending one on a suicide mission you probably still want them to complete the mission before they get killed so you should armor them up so they can do it.
>>9756000The only thing we know for Noble 6 was taking out insurrectionist cells and as the test pilot for the sabres.
>>9753743I'd like these >>9753344 great looks that reuse plenty of geometryOn another note these armors would also be welcome, since they're putting time into far more off-beat stuff anyway
>>9756000Poor Joe. He has to manage all these zoomer and more importantly total non-fan ideas coming from current employees.He's "head of creative" but it's still a miracle he managed to keep trend-chasing, monetized dances out of the equation.
>>9756127I wonder if the whole starting screen shit in infinite was a compromise for that. I've recently gone back to halo 4 to play Spartan ops since I never did them and have grown a new level of hatred for 343 just based off how horrible the prometheans in 4 are to fight. Like I can forgive Spartan ops reusing the same 5 maps over and over and over again but the enemy encounters consisting of them spawning 10 flying promethean fucks above you sends me over the edge.
>>9756155I think it might be more so you have a chance to see who your team is as they got rid of red vs blue. Its now Team A and the Fighting Mongooses. You can choose what your team and the enemy team has for shields and a bit of a highlight. This was never an issue for customization for the other games but I guess now that you need to buy purple it matters.
>>9756245I didn't play too much of the multiplayer but when you start getting hits in their shields glow like a fucking sun, granted your solution is still needed so you can actually start putting hits in them but still. Just another design decision I don't really agree with specially since it was probably done to help sell the colors they now monetized.
>>9756155The Prometheans are still weak to the Plasma Pistol BR/Pistol combo at least. Learned that on my last replay of 4.
>>9756713It's what I've been using for the most part but it feels like it's a bit random whether or not the DMR shot after their shield kills them in one shot or not since they have the helmet armor that barely ever opens. Then there's the flying cunts that need to be focused first cause they can revive the knights but start running away as soon as you put a single shot into them.
Wave 5 World of Halo is popping up online in China. Should be hitting the US soon hopefully.https://m.tb.cn/h.fqPdxIL?tk=ROzy28a32Bc
>>9757098>yellow shoulders n shitWhy? Just why lol. Completely ruins the look of the figure.
>>9757127It's probably a prototype or it's an error. Back of the box shows what it's supposed to look like.
Still waiting on a Spartan Collection H3 MC and a Cortana (1-3, heck even 4)
>>9757098>>9757127> Johnson> ODST> Grunt> Arbiter> All from original trilogy> Never ever in the UKFuck this tiny island
>>9757134>halo 4 cortanaOnly figure I'd literally put in a jar
>>9757194Just buy them from someone on Ebay. Tons of sellers do international shipping.
>>9756245>>9756285Fortunately, they are introducing a slider so that outlines can be set to 0.
>>9757387That might work for one or two figures, but i don't feel like almost doubling the price of each wave
>>9757194I feel you bro, Frenchfag here, can't find anything past series 1Was just "lucky" enough to have some random series 3 figures I think on AmazonI watch online almost every day to find a good deal on the CE pack, the Arby'n'Chief pack and other releases like Fred, but the rapey prices are just insane
>>9757541>27 funny dollars plus 16 shipping for budget Tartaruslol no
Finally found one, can't wait to mess around with it
>>9758091Post hotglue pics
>>9758091The knees are untenable
>>9750975Where's the rent.
>>9758091Sort of funnily coincidental, in a way. You getting the Yoroi figure right near the end of Season 1 one Halo Infinite, right after the Tenrai Event has ended.
>>9758091Saw Anthony's review and holy shit the knees. It's like they saw some old Play Arts Kai with peanut knees and decided they wanted to one up them for the most absurd knee joint ever.Who the FUCK designed this?
>>9758910>Anthony's reviewbut yeah he´s right in a couple of points amd the knees one is one is one that don´t botter me as much as the waist and ab crunch one
>>9757098Man I knada wish that ODST came with the Silenced SMG
Where do I get an anomalocaris toy?
>Saw Anthony's reviewHoly Shit thats Cringe
>>9753743>Every Armor Coating is dirty from waist down or knees downHoly shitHow the fuck is the FUNKO POP color still the cleanest one?Give me a figure with the color already.
>>9758091>>9758715>>9758910The knee's are pretty bad but hey glad you found one.They were $75+ on resellers for a long time and I got lucky way back finding one at retailNow they're everywhere.
Its been said im sure, but if you haven't already, definitely get the gamestop warthog set for the halo 3 chief, give him a good black panel-lining, raise up his shoulder pads a bit, and dot the shield emitters light blue and you've got a masterpiece
>>9761062damn that looks even better than the mcf one
>>9761067Yeah its crazy how good this looks and it's just the world of halo figure
>>9760456The knees are wack but i feel like the figure hides them well
>>9761062Wow this thing looks fucking great. I think just a touch of weathering would make it look perfect tho.
BRUH why the FUCK are the Jazwares figures an inexistent commodity in europe? that shit is harder to find than fine china porcelain.I want to upgrade my halo figure collection. What do? all I have are 2 classic Mcfarlane figures (a scout with his waist broken and a mkVI with his hands broken) also have the Fred figure from halo 5 and one of his feet doesn't stay on.Should I get World of halo figures? I was thinking of getting that mantis bundle and customizing the spartan. Also fellow yuropean anons where do you get them figures?
>>9765199Grabbed a series 1 Chief because he was available on AmazonNow I got a red Jackal, 2 random Spartans and a series 4 Chief because you could buy them on Amazon but they were random figuresThat shit is killing me, I also collect 3'75 Star Wars figures and the Halo ones are scaling really nicely with themNow they're releasing "legacy" characters like Johnson, Arbiter, CE Chief and I can't have them unless I'm willing to pay twice the price in shipping feesFuck this shit, even on alieexpress they're raping with the price. And I can't understand why since you can easily find Fortnite toys even if it's more popular than Halo
>>9765400>>9765400>Now they're releasing "legacy" characters like Johnson, Arbiter, CE Chief and I can't have them unless I'm willing to pay twice the price in shipping feesThose figs aren't out yet at mass retail. You're whining about getting them early for a higher cost
>>9765433They should ship faster
>>9765433No you fucking retard, I'm just complaining that they won't be available just like the other waves
>>9765400You're from the UK? I'm in Germany atm and even here I can only get them from amazon with almost double the price coz of shipping or resellers on ebay.>mantis bundle for 100€
Anyone got pictures of the deluxe arbiter out in the wild? I'd like to see how it looks in hand.
>>9765566Damn, remember when that ginger fuck said that these issues wouldn't last much longer and that the figures would start reaching more of europe/aus? Lol that was like a year ago what w lying cunt.
>>9767795as far as we know its just a repaint from the Warthog run one, you can even tell by how it has the armored jaws from 3 instead of the exposed ones from 2
>>9768507>has no idea what's happening in the world outside their room, even though they have the internet at their fingertips
>>9765566No, FranceJust bought pic related for like 70 euros, isn't really cheaper on ebay and it was the last one on Amazon so I said "fuck it" >>9768659Except for a few goddamn US exclusives I never had any trouble ordering other stuff like SW or Jurassic World figures, and you can find Jazwares stuff in stores except Halo, so I guess they're just lazy fucks
>>9768659Nigga shut the fuck up its been 2 years since all this shit started barely an excuse anymore esp when a bunch of their other lines don't have nearly as bad distribution problems. Also double fucked when you make false promises and then just try and forget about it.
>>9768601I think he means the 1/12 scale figure that's coming out
>>9768601>>9770339Yeah, I was asking about the 8 inch one.
>>9770791is it really the Jazwares one? because it kinda looks like the Mattel one
>>9771233Yeah, that's the unreleased jazwares one
Jesus Christ, what the fuck is this QC, the ankle came off straight out of the box
>>9740953I love my chieftain
>>9748933this is actually inaccurate. chief uses his left hand to kill Keyes, not his right
>>9771364Yeah the series 1 6.5s were notorious for shitty QC. It got fairly better afterwards tho
>>9771413Based and jiralhanaepilled. Post more of that big fella
Waists on them are getting way better, they actually have decent range out of box in the middles now, if only they could nail those knees, if they must do double joints why not just copy the WOH joints? But at this point If they can't nail a double joint they should just shoot for a single joint at 90 degree cause jeez, the double joints work but they're so ugly and unrealistic looking. Or at the very least please start using a harder material for the actual joint thing. The gushers ass feeling rubbery joints are terrible feeling and all but ruin the figures
>>9771753more pics of Jorge please
>>9771753I fucking need that rogue NOW
>>9771810Hes an absolute unit, can't wait to throw some wash and dirt on him
>>9772291Hes definitely bigger than everyone else for sure but hes only actually a bit taller than his friends
>>9772295I'd say despite the gooey knees, these are definitely some of the best figures in the entire line
>>9772291damn Nobel looks good together. Kinda wish I went in on them. I'm holding out for Blue Team personally.
>>9771753Is rogue just H2 chief with a new hat? Cuuase I had beef with more than just the weird shade of green they went with, his torso was weak and the ankles were borderline useless until I modded them.
I only have a couple of Mcfarlane's halo figures, should I get the world of halo figures or the bigger figures? Which ones have the better quality?
>>9772316Its actually an all new figure and it looks way better than the H2 Chief, at the very least I'd recommend 3d printing a 1:1 replacement for the joint piece so its nice and rigid since it's main issue is that it suffers from gummy knee disease
>>9772326WoH is much better quality overall
>>9772643That sentinel is pretty cute doeI also really like that marine and camo jackal
>>9772643>GITD AnubisNice, I wish there were more gitd figures in the line
>>9772780Just made an amazon wishlist for everything I could find on there (WoH) I'm going to the us in the summer so I think that's the only way I'll be able to get these figures without paying britbong scalpers.Hope the WoH figures are worth it.
>>9773513>GITDGhost in the Dell?
>>9773710Glow In The Dark
>>9772506Damn he looks a lot more solid than I thought he would, those chromed visors really do something. Also hope that being a new buck means an one inevitable halo 3 chief uses that body instead of the halo 2 chiefs.
>>9757680>Gamestop still hasn't gotten mine in yetI pre ordered in December and they told me last month that covid is fucking with their shipments, but I'll get it eventually. I have a sneaking suspicion that it's not happening.
>>9774939Yeah probably better to try and find one in store then cancel your order lol
>>9771753How is Jorge´s non helmet head?
>>9774999Its a little weird, the face printing is waaaay better than Kat and Jun was but like, it seems too small and it makes the neck look huge its really weird(He doesn't actually include an unhelmted head which is fine IMO)
>>9775095>"Six I want pictures of the covenant staging area NOW"I'm fine with it too although to be honest if I would have wanted any of their heads unhelmeted it would definitely have been Jorge over basically all the others cause of his death scene. Woulda been nice to be able to do a pose with him holding up six.
>>9775095>THE femboy in the left background next to that old light-up base Cortana.Very nice!
>>9775095LMAOWhy they didn't include an unhelmeted head with him is beyond me. If there was a noble member to include that head, it should be him
>>9772506whoa, those ankle rockers are actually angled? instantly better than H2 chief.
