Any Halofags on this board? They look pretty good and Pak has a decent track-record with Halo stuff.
Chief looks stylized again, but Locke looks fucking amazing.
Those are nice, you should also check the joyride line out. Oh and stay away from the McFarlane line just garbage
Not even a fan of the character, but damn.
Those are pretty old, can you still get them at okay price?
Yea I got most of these years ago but if you're not anal about them coming in the box, you could pick em up for about 10 bucks each here's what I got today finally. All these were 40 shipped
Not the ones you see in the meme image that people keep posting.
Pic related is afew Halo 4 pak figs
Yea no problem man they're the halo joyride line they only did halo 1 and 2 I'd suggest looking em up on eBay right now theres a lot of them just posted cheap right now I would suggest only paying more than 20 for brand new ones and yea the weapons they came with are amazing in detail. They also stand up good on their own and can pose pretty good
No problem man good luck also search halo master chief because sometimes people don't know what they have and label them as just master chief. Also check toywiz they have a couple restocked and dirt cheap hope this helps
>Oh and stay away from the McFarlane line just garbage
From what i've seen of their spartans, i one hundred percent agree with you. Too short and too limited in their articulation to be of any use.
Though i am curious as to how good their alien figures are. Their articulation isn't too important, but do they look weirdly undersized compared to 6" figures? Or would they probably fit in ok?
Oh, and they have made some good looking Brute figures if you are into Brutes.
I only own pic related, but I'm pretty sure they've made brutes from every halo that featured them(except H2)
>shitting on the better sculpted, better painted, super poseable McFarlane halo figures
>suggesting the cheaply painted Joyride figures that look worse than if Mattel made them
Do you have an ebay store where you sell off your cases of unbought uncared for by anyone Joyride figures or something?
Sure, the Joyride figures could hold their guns better, but they look awful. The line was poorly painted, when there was paint, and everything looked like it was an 80s toy.
The Reach Brute Chieftain is superior.
Better paint and better articulation.
Back when these lines were new, i was only buying up the aliens, because i like weird but cool looking aliens.
Didn't really care for the spartans and marines because they were so generic looking, but having bought stuff on for cheap at conventions, i REALLY REALLY MISSED OUT. Highly poseable inspite of the sculpt getting in the way, so they're a lot of fun to play with. Even though i'm meh about the designs, they were really well painted and sculpted. So I'm stuck paying like $8 more over previous MSRP... which is pretty awesome given how awesome the figures are.
Makes the newer figs feel like crap, since they're less articulated.
Maybe that was why I liked the joyride toys, they looked like 80s toys. That was the only plus about the McFarlane line, their articulation. Lolz no I don't sell own eBay but I do see stores there with tons of unsold McFarlane halo toys. Also how can you not love just looking at the joyride chiefs like this
I really just want an arbiter to go along with my chief
I have the PAK 20th Anniversary Chief and the Joyride Chief, i'd take an arbiter to match either, i know there's a Joyride of him but it's hard justifying the prices for that toy
I like the new Jackal design, but in the same sense I like the 1998 Godzilla design. It's a cool design, but it is NOT the source material at all. Hopefully they handwave it in the future as like a different species of Kig-Yar or something (by the way, does anyone talk about the Skirmishers anymore?).
The Grunts aren't that bad, especially when you see what they originally looked like (pic related) - all they really changed was the mask and armor.
The Elites look fucking terrifying now, how can anyone hate it? Honestly the Elites didn't change that much - my biggest gripe was that the Covenant elites got rid of the arm armor - it made them look like they were wearing metal tanktops, and it looked fucking stupid.
Skirmishers apparently went extinct on or during the fall of Reach. I believe Bungies excuse was that they sent too many to the planet and couldn't repopulate enough or something really fucking stupid.
Haha yea and I can't be live the prices they had him for eBay compared to what he sells for. I paid like 15 bucks for him and people want like 80 90ish. I think it's only the paint splattered one new in the box that would ever go for that much
What's the quality like on these? I don't care for Halo 4 and just want a good Mark V figure. Turns out the Mark V armor is a armor set for the figure on the right and not it's own figure.
I can't speak for most reach/4/5 mcfarlane figures, but their halo 3 line and all the classic/wars stuff they did before reach came out was great.
>Hopefully they handwave it in the future as like a different species of Kig-Yar or something
That's what it always was. Jackals were explicitly stated to have tons of variations and subspecies as early as h3, H4 jackals come from a particular content and Skirmishers are from an asteroid colony.
>Skirmishers apparently went extinct on or during the fall of Reach
No, not at all. There's even a skimisher character in one of the books from 2-3 years ago.
