I finally gave up and have started ordering Spartan Collection figures from Amazon and Ebay. Fuck Jazwares and their non-existent distribution.

Gave up on double joints and replaced one of my halo 2 chiefs knees with a knees off a cheap luke skywalker, single hinge is way more realistic anyway, I'm so over double joints

I just opened mine and I'm actually impressed. He's got actual ab crunch and aside from the wacky knees with some questionable double joints on the arms, he's really solid. Can even get him to hold the brute shot properly.

Bought the anniversary pack for starters. Friend of mine managed to get me a H2 Chief as well. Yoroi, Jun and Jorge are my next focuses afterwards. Looking forward to Carter, H4 Chief and Arbiter.

Anybody have experience with getting more range out of the WoH figures? I've shaved a bunch of plastic from around the elbows, the gains I get are pretty slim. I'd like to get more out of the hips on the mark Vs, but I'm not even sure where to start there.
>>
>>9776115
Unironically hope they change to this at this point. I know it might be less range in the long run but it'll surely look a lot better.

Yeah double joints are super overrated and frankly totally unrealistic. And more often than not in onions cuck toy "reviewers" they're a point of contention, "these knees look bad they're ugly!!!" Also you physically could not kick your own ass in a suit of armor like mjolnir its designed to prevent hyper extensions like that. Also with single hinged knees it allows for a lateral rotation to align to the ground during a crouch, and you no longer have to rely on the hip to do all the work.
Ideally the articulation in the legs should be working in unison from hip all the way down to toe, good forward motion, good thigh swivel, 90 degree + 10 At the knee, enough of an ankle pivot to flatten the foot to the ground at most angles the recipe for good leg articulation, and I hate to bow at the alter of Todd, but the recipe for good leg articulation on mjolnir has already been done by the halo 3 line. Those are my gold standard for posing halo shit, below the waist and I frequently consult my master chief as a reference. So jazzwares honestly needs to get the fuck with it

Any tips on shaving/ cutting the back legs of the Jazwares CE chief ? I really want to give it more leg movement.

You dontbhave to replace the actual joint but this would be the gist of it, cut into the lower leg, and round a cutout into the upper leg and it should be good

Targets around me got a new case with the Samurai armor from a couple of months ago. Not sure why they're getting more of it now. WM made sense since it never showed up there until the other week.

Not thier fault that 343 delayed the game so many times and made last minute changes to Chief.
>>
>>9778430
what did you use for the panel lining on the 3 chief? looking to spruce up my own a bit since that looks really nice.

also, what's a good paint to use for touching up small details on figures? need matte black and white, preferably nothing too pricey since I don't need a whole lot

I just used a black gundam panel marker for the lines, and to fill in the missing black details I used to use model master flat black but they discontinued model master, so I've been using tamiya flat black, usually uts pretty cheap and it goes on pretty well with a brush

Fuck, it’s already hard to find some of these in the wild but you also gotta worry about QC issues.

Really? I remember them being awesome when I was a kid and bought a small used collection from a garage sale recently. And boy, some are real dog shit. They look nice but have such shit articulation. Especially some of the Reach stuff.

This is canon according to the live action show.
>>
>>9784561
>Especially some of the Reach stuff
I will never understand not giving the reach Marines bicep swivel or elbow swivel if you weren't gonna give them bicep swivel. It made it so you couldn't actually put them in shooting poses and iirc they reused the mold to make the reach odst's since they did share a good amount of the armor in the game.

So I havent been following the like since wave 1 outside of what's in the new waves, has the QC improved since then? I'm thinking of getting noble team now that it's complete.
>>
>>9785037
Yes but some bad decisions were also made, they redesigned the knees so they look kinda weird now along with them using a rubbery material for them so they have a lot of flex to the sides and they got rid of the butterfly joints for some reason. Otherwise the QC is nowhere near as bad as it was wave 1.

They definitely had their fair share of issues many of us look back on with rose-tinted glasses, but man they looked good and there were a number of great all around figures. Still so many cool figures I wish I would have gotten and are stupid expensive now. I remember Kobac making tutorials on how to give those UNSC troopers bicep swivels using a weapon peg lol. Also the little mods for the shotguns since it was hard to get the Spartans to hold them properly

one thing I really hated about McFarlane line is the inconsistency on trigger fingers, some have some don't and even in the last halo 4/5 series trigger fingers became even more rare
>>
>>9787685
yeah basically almost all the halo 3 figures had trigger fingers, then all the reach figures onwards had the generic cupping hands.

Haha, well, I guess that’s what happens when I try to type one-handed really late at night in the AM hours while watching TV and eating, or something. I didn’t notice I made the typo until now.

You were pretty close >>9797070, but after re-reading it a few times, I think I meant to type “picture than”

Also, not relayed to Halo toys, but rather the site in general, but what’s up with these “follow as you scroll” videos? I just saw one today.

My nearest Walmart actually had seemingly just set out a single case of the Yoroi wave (seies 4?), managed to finally get one myself and it's actually pretty nice aside from the typical articulation related drawbacks.

Might be hopium on my part but if that’s what the the majority of 343’s employees are focused on, it could explain why Infinite’s multiplayer is so half-assed
>>
>>9803463
I just think even they can't mess up learning lessons from the initial campaign. What you're saying might be true as well, which would be unfortunate, unless they're planning a substantial amount of maps/armors to release alongside it. Not beyond belief, really.
The initial campaign really didn't make worthwhile use of a lot of its extra space. Polygons that should've gone to multiplayer maps and armors instead. Which would have translated to a better release, better player retention and very likely more and/or better figures. We'll see.
