Where do they sell Halo toys? Online only?
I wouldn't know, I just got into Halo.

Joyride was the company that made Halo figures for Halo: CE and Halo 2. Sadly, they lost the license and now McFarlane has it. You can still find some Joyride figures at stores like GameCrazy, GameStop, or Toys R Us, and also online. Amazon has a buttload, and a few under $10. McFarlane's Halo 3 figures are set to be released around February/March of next year. You can preorder them on Amazon for $12.99 each. Hope that helps.  :)

I heard W*M will get an exclusive so I answered my own question. I might pick some of the first figures up though, I'm going to Game Stop soon to trade in some old PS2 games I play any more ( & LSW 1 & 2 because I'm getting the Complete Saga).

Technically, today was the "official" release date for these figures but stores have had them out for about a week.

I would highly reccomend picking at least one up if you're a Halo fan. I bought the GameStop Exclusive Steel CQB Spartan and the figures are top-notch. Great articulation (almost too much), unique paintjobs ("battle damage" and paint details on undersuit), Interchangeable armor, these guys have it all. If they were only an inch and a half shorter, they would be in scale with Star Wars and would blow Hasbro's work out of the water...
My whole expanse...I cannot see...

I;m personally glad they are not too small.. I was actually hoping they would be bigger. Especially for the price point.

So who is heavily collecting this line? I ordered a Cortana off Amazon, but I'm on the fence about getting more into this line. I figure a small display of MF figures couldn't hurt...

I'm not too into the game(s), but I'm thinking sbout getting a couple of figures from this line. Master Chief looks cool, but what I'm really looking at are the Brute figures. That's a neat alien design. The only thing detering me is the price per figure.

Received my MF Cortana. A lot smaller than I thought she'd be, but she still is pretty neat.

Just wanted to bump this up since soon wave two will be out. I'm going to need some help securing the exclusives this go around as they are many.

If you can help me out with Halo 3 figures I have a short list to look for. All are exclusives. The first wave was scarce in my parts and I had to resort to eBay. Something I did not want to do.

Here's the short list:
WAVE 2 due out around June ( I only need one of each with exception to the last one in the list):
• Spartan EOD (Blue)-Wal*Mart Exclusive
• Spartan ODST (STEEL)-Game Stop Exclusive
• Spartan ODST (CYAN)-Wal*Mart Exclusive
• Spartan E.V.A. (BROWN)-TRU exclusive
• Spartan ODST (Black)-this one is the only non-exclusive one. I need 3 of these

Blue colored for Wal*Mart (selling theirs for $9.99 each), Brown colored for TRU (selling theirs for $11.99 each), and Steel (grey) colored for Game Stop (selling theirs for $13.99 each).

Any help would be greatly appreciated and of course I'll pay cost plus shipping so there is not cost to yourself in the end. Don't make a special trip on my behalf (especially with the price of gas nowadays), just whenever you happen to be on a toy run, if you could check the Halo stuff.

Thanks to any and all who may help.

Bumpy bump.

It's getting close to when wave 2 is going to hit retail.

Just wanted to remind folks of that. (If you can help me as well-see list above this psot for what I need help getting.)

Another bump up since it's been a few weeks. These are due out within a week or so (approximately).

I really could use your help with this.

Again, here are the ones I'm looking for:
WAVE 2 due out around June ( I only need one of each with exception to the last one in the list):
• Spartan EOD (Blue)-Wal*Mart Exclusive
• Spartan ODST (STEEL)-Game Stop Exclusive
