As Bungie, 343 Industries, and the world celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Halo, so does McFarlane Toys by making their first series of Halo Anniversary action figures, bringing back old figures, and making figures they never got the chance to make before. Let's celebrate!
Series 1 PacksEdit
John-117 (Halo: Combat Evolved)Edit
This all-new figure portrays the hero of the Halo trilogy just as he appeared in the game that started it all: 2001's Halo: Combat Evolved. The stylized, angular design is sure to remind long-time fans of how he appeared when he was first introduced ten years ago. Figure comes with an Assault Rifle, a Frag Grenade, and the left half of the "Easy" Difficulty Plaque.
Dutch (Halo 3: ODST)Edit
The heavy weapons specialist of Buck's ODST squad joins our action figure lineup: Corporal Taylor H. Miles, better known as "Dutch." This new figure is in scale with our previous Halo 3: ODST figures, so Dutch won't look out of place with his teammates. Figure comes with Dutch's signature weapon, the Spartan Laser. Dutch also comes with a Frag Grenade and the right half of the "Easy" Difficulty Plaque.
Cortana (Halo 3)Edit
Originally released back in 2008 in our very first series of Halo action figures, Cortana returns for the 10th Anniversary of the Halo franchise. This figure features clear blue plastic and a light-up base to represent her holographic appearance. Cortana also comes with a knife for the Difficulty Plaque that can be added to upgrade it to "Normal" difficulty.
Arbiter (Halo 2)Edit
Another classic character from our earliest Halo lines returns for the 10th Anniversary: the Arbiter, originally from Halo 3 Series 2. Thel 'Vadam comes with the ceremonial armor of the Arbiter rank, a Covenant Energy Sword, and a Plasma grenade. Figure also comes with the second knife for the Difficulty Plaque, upgrading it to "Heroic" level.
Grunt Spec Ops (Halo 3)Edit
The ever-popular Grunts come in many colors and ranks, and the Halo Anniversary series introduces a new figure in clad, dark, and stealthy gray armor, and comes with a Fuel Rod Gun and a Plasma Grenade. If you're collecting all the pieces of the Difficulty Plaque, this small figure comes with a big bonus: the Elite skull that finishes the emblem and upgrades it to “Legendary” status.
The "Fearless Leaders" 3-pack celebrates a trio of other bold heroes from the blockbuster Halo games. Representing Halo 3: ODST is the leader of its Helljumper squad, Gunnery Sergeant Edward Buck, featuring his signature MA5C Assault Rifle and removable ODST helmet. Halo Wars, introduced several new leaders to the Halo universe, including the UNSC Marine, Sergeant John Forge, featuring his forest camouflage armor and a Shotgun. Halo: Reach, introduced players to the SPARTAN-IIIs of Noble Team, and their leader, Carter, featuring his Designated Marksman Rifle and a Frag Grenade.
The star of the Halo trilogy has evolved quite a bit over the past decade, and John-117 Evolution 3-Pack covers his three best-known versions. Representing the first Halo game is the Halo: Combat Evolved John-117. Figure includes Mark V armor, an Assault Rifle, a Frag Grenade, and a unique "low polygon count" design. Straight from the cover of the second game is our Halo 2 John-117, with Mark VI armor, dual-wielded SMGs, and a Frag Grenade. Finishing the fight is the Halo 3 John-117. This figure includes battle-damaged Mark VI armor, a Sniper Rifle and a Frag Grenade.
