Yer i know its a 2 pack but after the 3 master chief,s i already have i believe the 2 pack idea is the only way they can sell him to me a forth time thankfully he comes with the  "M7057/Defoliant Projector"

and yes i know bout the crimson mongoose but Australia wont get that one.

I can prolly get you a decent deal on a Crimson CQB w/mongoose. LMK if interested.

And yeah, the flamethrower is awesome. I've been waiting for that weapon.

I already knew there would be figures from the game. What I'm more excited about are the vehicles. Hopefully we now get something bigger than  mongoose. I really hope this opens the door for the warthog.

If so, I can see them makign the "Falcon." No, not the Millenim Falcon, but the Halo Reach Falcon. This the mini-Pelican VTOL aircraft seen in the REACH trailer.

Thanks for posting the link.

ok...where the hell did you get those from? lol
Those are awesome.

That tank is huge. If it were made into a toy, I'd guess it to be in the $150 range. While I'd buy one, I don't know if there is enough of a fanbase (of buying fans) to warrant it being made.

Now the Warthog though, that is a different story. That would be much less expensive, I can see it being in the $40-60 range. And McFarlane could easily make both the Turret and Gauss canon versions at the same time. In fact they could include the parts for both to allow us to choose which version we want to display. Though see how toy manufacturer operate, I would see McF releasing the Turret one first, then the Gauss later, possibly as an exclusive. Oh and then there is the artic deco version.

That Banshee is sweet. That's easily a $30 toy.

Damnit why did you have to show these? lol I wants them, I wants them! heh heh

$30?  You do see the water bottle behind it for a scale reference?  That's a pretty big model.

yer i do have to agree the Banshee is significantly larger scale for some reason but the tank is quite accurate.
but the most we can hope for is a warthog. I love the idea and i quote

No that's fine Pooda, the pics are great.  I never saw these so I really like them just from a customizer POV.  That's some perfect rusting detailing on those last pics.  Well done to the studio they hired.

Shoot, no apology need dude, these are awesome pics.

I love this stuff. This is one area for which I have a degree in. (Industrial Design)

I love seeing how people make scratch built models. Looks like a lot of vacuum forming was done.

The Banshee is definitely out of scale with the rest. It's a much smaller craft than the Tank. My statement of it being a $30 toy should be understood as, "in scale, this toy should retail for $30." So apologies for not making myself perfectly clear. Of course if McFarlane were to include a figure to pilot the craft then tack on another $10-15.

poodachoo, if you've got more pics, please post them, or at the least, I'd be happy with links so I could check them out myself. Again, thanks for posting these.

Yeah, I saw this. Beautiful vehicle. I can't seem to find out how much it's going to retail for. I'm guessing between $50-65.

Lots of good stuff coming for Halo. Halo Reach figures!

I'm very happy about the Ghost. The Grunt that comes with it (as pictured) is one from Reach, that is why he has a very different backpack. Bungie folks are calling it the "mini-keg."

Huh, I just realized that the warthog in the above picture is NOT the final product. It looks like it's a mock-up made of foam or balsa wood parts. Look at the texturing and I noticed a holding pin in the second picture where the windshield meets the fender.

Don't get me wrong, this is a great piece, but since it's not the final product, I wonder if McF brought this along to gauge interest in a Warthog.

Let me say that I'm emphatic about having a warthog. It's one of the more iconic vehicles of the Halo series.

That warthog does look like an excellent vehicle.  I like the looks of all the figs and vehicles they've shown.  Still, I can't help but wish that these were in the 3.75-4" range so they'd match up with the SW and Joe figures.
