  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.

   E...

100% agree.  It's the only thing keeping me from getting into HALO.

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.
yer i have to agree

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.
i wonder as well.
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.

True but im happy that they reduced the size down to 5'' from like 8'' or 9''the old bungie joyride ones that i have cause vehicles really wouldn't be possible for that size.

I agree on the size, the 5" line seems to be a decent size, it's just that nothing else I own other than mid-90's Star Trek is really in that scale.  I have one Master Chief and probably would have bought a lot more if they'd been in a format that was compatible with the other lines I collect. 

I have several Avatar ships/creatures, for example, because they look cool and fit in the 1:18 scale.

I don't mind the size. One good thing is that these figures aren't all that much more expensive than SW figures and their much bigger. Not really many army builders either, so I'm not burning through money for these. While this line is rampant with exclusives, it's not been all that bad to find them, eventually.

I'm glad McF took this down from Joyride's scale. Besides, JR never had the detail that McF does. I don't think there would be that much detail though in the 3 3/4" scale.

Though to be sure, I'd have bought them in that scale as well. I'd love to have these standing next to my other figs, SW, Marvel, etc. They look like giants now though in comparison.

Yep, I saw these several weeks ago.

poodachoo, you should check out Halocollectors.com for Halo stuff. While there is only about a dozen of us that are active, you'll get Halo info much quicker there since it's specifically a Halo site.

I'm not trying to steal you away from here, just saying if you want to broaden your Halo fandom, you can add Halocollectors.com to your repertoire of websites you visit.
