When we last heard from McFarlane, we had a full listing of all of their HALO offerings for 2012. CLICK HERE for that giant pile of info! Now we dig a little deeper and get to actually show you some of this video game based awesome. Note that all images are designs pending final approval, so they are meant to just give you an idea of what you can expect...and..you know...drool a little.
HALO 4 Series 1 Action Figure Assortment : Releasing before the game launches in this fall, Halo 4 Series 1 will offer fans a look at some of the characters from the new game. Many of these characters have yet-to-be-revealed and are so "Top Secret" that we can't even name them. We can tell you Halo 4 Series 1 marks the return of the most popular character of the Halo universe, Master Chief! Master Chief was last seen in Halo 3 entering into a cryonic sleep and telling Cortana to "wake me, when you need me" at the end of the game. Well, Master Chief is wide awake and ready for battle in Halo 4! The line is set to include included Cortana, Master Chief and 6 secret figures, to be revealed at a later date.
