So, I was thinking about it after seeing the new contests when I logged on today, who here owns any of the figures and which ones?
At the minute I have the series one Master Chief and the Series two Arbiter. =].
So which ones do you have?

You know, I've always wanted to get one of the figures, but I never thought of myself as much of a "die-hard Halo fan", so I never bothered to purchase one.

Maybe I should?

I see no need to. Why not spend your money on something more practical? But maybe thats just me.

Well, being unemployed, I don't have money coming my way often; I don't spend money on much more than food as it is -- and if I'm not worrying about eating, it's going towards feeding others or transporting myself from one place to another.

But there will always be those small items that you don't mind spending some money on. These figures may be one of those items.
*shrugs* I guess it's just a matter of how much I want one, or where I'd put it. Sealed or opened. Etc.

None, Halo is the most overated game ever espacilly halo 3 which without an online mode is only worth a 7 at best. Microsoft have been milking their cash cow that is the Halo franchise sinse day 1, action figures & they've even went away from the genre of the game to revert to RTS just so they could milk there cow again. Sorry but thats just the way i feel about this game.

Yeah, it's not something I would get unless you had the extra cash and there wasn't anything else you wanted to do with it. Don't get me wrong, I love these figures, but they do just sit (or stand) there.

Is the banshee proportionate to MC or is it smaller? That would be awesome to have. That and a Scorpion...good stuff.

I don't have any of the kind you can win in the contest, but I have the one from the Halo Spartan Controller.

Yes, yes... Halo is very overrated. Simply because there are whopping 3 FPS titles and an RTS.

God forbid a company creates something that is generally liked by most of the Xbox-loving population.

Except for the fact that Gears of War was always slated to be a trilogy, Mass Effect is a confirmed trilogy, how many different iterations of Half Life have there been now? Final Fantasy has how many different games out? Don't even get me started on Lucas and Star Wars...

But of course... Halo is such a cash cow and the only franchise that is "milked" by it's respective owners.

Anyway, rants aside... I have two figures. One is from Halo 2 which is sitting a box somewhere because it looks pretty stupid. The other is THIS (http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B0013Z860M/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_3?ie=UTF8&index=3).

I took the Infection Forms off of it though. They look pretty stupid up close. But the rest of the statue is extremely detailed, which is surprising considering it was $15 at Wal-Mart.

Now I just want to finish off that set by buying the Arbiter and Brute statues. The Brute is actually pretty huge. I think it stands about 13 inches from Hammer to base.

EDIT: And if I had about $300 burning a hole in my pocket... this would be sitting on my shelf:

I'm too lazy to find the post on Bungie that showed the detail for this statue... and the front view, but it's pretty amazing.

Any locations of places where these can be purchased.

Although, at the thought I could check play.com

*checks*

Cool, after much research (lol 5 seconds typing in halo 3 into the search bar on Play.Com) I found these 3 for sale.

Pretty cheap if your a collector, but a little pointless if you are not. :)

I love my H3 figures, my most-prized one is one of the 9.5" Master Chief models...

I have 8 of the McFarlane Toys figures too, and an 8" Hunter arriving soon... :)

Bearded Bugs, that's a really slick looking model. Where'd you pick that up and what'd it run you? I used to know Todd many years back out this way. We went to the same local comic shop...yes, I'm dating myself by saying that, lol.

Does that mean you can get lots of free McFarlane toys? Best friends forever?! :D

Thanks though, I do love it, it's the only model that I took out of the box just because it looks so sexy in my room hehe... I ordered it online somewhere a while ago, probably a UK site though so I'm not sure where you'd look for one in Canada... :( It cost me about 50, which is about 90 Canadian dollars apparently, there are a few more colours of Spartan available too I think.

Honestly, he was a bit of a douche 20 years ago so I can't imagine making millions each year now would have bought him some humility. ;)

I did contact him once though as a 'Hey, remember me?' email. He sent a few Spawn comics signed my way (or one of him many minions on his behalf I'm sure). This was years before he got into doing toys though.

Ahh I've never even seen a photo of him or anything, I just like his Halo toys. :D

If you used to be friends though you'd expect a little more awesome stuff than a couple signed comics surely?

The stuff I deleted is your opinion so I dont care, but technically by creating the RTS Halo has gone back to its roots as Halo: CE was going to be an RTS before they decided it was more of an FPS and went with that.


Anyway... I want the Halo figures but all I have is the one from the controller :(
