Well, I'm getting my case of Halo busts shipped to me and should have it by WED or THUR. I'll have one each of the red and blue and two Master Chiefs. Not sure if I want the extra MC. If not, I'll sell it at cost plus shipping.

Anyone interested, PM me and I'll let you know once I get the package if I'm going to keep it or not.

Before you do, I've got several extras and most were exclusives. If you're interested I can post a list and the cost for each (at cost of course).

Picked up a Series 3 Flood Combat Form at TRU.

You can get the Human Flood for CHEAP on Amazon.com.
$3.99 per figure! Now THAT is cheap for a Halo fig. The reason why this one is so cheap I think is due to the lack of articulation. But it's still a sweet figure. I already had three beofre seeing this price, but I may just buy some more because that is such a good price.

Well, I'm in need of help for one of the latest figures. It is the Blue Hayabusa ( http://www.spawn.com/toys/product.aspx?product=3824 ) exclusive to Wal*Mart. I'm not worried about card condition. If anyone can help me I'd greatly appreciate it. The figure should cost $10 plus tax. I'll pay cost+shipping+$5 extra for your trouble.

Please PM me and/or respond in this thread if you can help.

Here's a pic of the fig:


Thanks in advance to anyone who helps me on this.

Whew this topic needs a serious refresh...


Wave 6 (Medal wave) is due out any time now. I have a complete wave on order from BBTS as well as an extra each of: Brute, Flood pureform, White Recon, 6 red grunts.

Also, be on the lookout for the remote control Warthog (can be found at Gamestop for about $25). There are also a RC Mongoose and RC Hornet (yes it FLYS!) coming this month.

As well the McF Halo Mongoose sets are due to drop this month as well.

Damn, I'll be spending about $400 on Halo stuff this month. Just at the WRONG time for me too... I'm buying a house. Well, thankfully I've had these toys budgeted for, but still my wife may have a small conniption.

I picked up my very first Halo figure, the green one with Rockets. Ross, $4.99. Glad I got one, but the accessories seem easily breakable.

Green with Rockets? Do you mean Master Chief?

If so, that's from an older wave, but man, that's a great price!

I've got an ever increasing collection of these figures now. At last count it's approx 150 figures.

I've done like Anton and nabbed some of these at discount stores for cheap, just for the accessories alone.  Pretty cool and can work with SW scaled figures.

Not to burst any bubbles here, but did you know that there is a third mongoose? It comes with a Crimson and Silver CQB Spartan.

Likewise when you say waiting on your favorite, did you know that the picture you posted was NOT of Master Chief? In fact the one you posted is a Spartan from the "Halo Wars" video game, not Halo, Halo 2 or Halo 3. There is a significant difference in the armor and coloration.

For the record I too am awaiting this specific figure. It was to be in the latest wave of figures that is currently out in stores, but for some reason McFarlane pulled it back. It will now be coming out in a two-pack with the actual Master Chief. See pic below:



Here's the main link: http://www.spawn.com/toys/product.aspx?product=4100

I've been collecting this line since McFarlane took it over. I've enjoyed it quite a bit and it's not really expensive to collect, save a few exclusives, mostly stemming from overseas. Still, it's nothing compared to the money I've spent in the past on SW.

Jesse, if you're interested in just the accessories, then you might be interested in the weapons pack. They issued one a wave or so ago and are reissuing it. Here it is:



And the main link: http://www.spawn.com/toys/product.aspx?product=4093

It's a decent mix of both Human and Covenant weaponry. Though if you're after an AR or BR, then yeah, you're going to have to buy the figures for now. I'm hoping for a NEW Weapons pack that includes those weapons among others, instead of this reissue. But you take what you can get I suppose.

I've never even seen those packs or I probably would've picked one up.
