HALO 4 Action Figures Announced
Plus new Halo Universe series continues where Anniversary line left off...
Halo Waypoint, the offical site for all things Halo, announces that McFarlane will be releasing figures based on HALO 4, the latest installment in the popular sci-fi video game series debuting this fall.
Halo 4 brings back the most popular character of the Halo universe, the Master Chief, and kicks off an all-new trilogy of games. Dubbed the "Reclaimer Trilogy" by 343 Industries, these new games explore the characters of the Master Chief and Cortana, expand the Halo fiction in bold new ways and bring even more of the innovation that the Halo series is known for to the gaming world.
"Each new Halo game is a significant entertainment event," says Todd McFarlane, CEO and founder of McFarlane Toys. "Halo 4 marks the return of the Master Chief and Cortana, plus the introduction of new characters, weapons and locations sure to excite long-time fans."
The Halo 4 figure series continues in the 6-inch size introduced with their Halo: Reach figures. They're also introducing a series of larger, boxed figures. These deluxe items are in scale with their 6-inch figures, but include larger accessories, such as Master Chief's Cryotube. Halo 4 Series 1 kicks off this August with four carded figures and one boxed figure set, and expands to include even more figures later in the fall.
• Master Chief
• Secret Figure 1
• Secret Figure 2
• Secret Figure 3
• Frozen Master Chief and Cryotube
• Secret Figure 4
• Secret Figure 5
• Secret Figure 6
• Secret Boxed Figure 1
Halo 4 Series 1 will be launched in August 2012, and will expand around the game launch in fall 2012, continuing into 2013. Available at Walmart, Target, Toys "R" Us, GameStop, local comic book stores, drug stores and other retailers. MSRP is $12 for standard carded figures and $25 for deluxe boxed figures.
In addition to its all-new Halo 4 action figure line, McFarlane Toys is continuing its Halo: Anniversary series in fall 2012. Since the franchise's tenth anniversary has now passed, the line is being rebranded as "Halo Universe."
Halo Universe continues to bring fans the classic, fan-favorite characters from the earlier Halo games, and even includes "expanded universe" sources such as novels, comic books and the animated feature, Halo Legends. This series also continues the "build-a-figure" feature of the Halo: Anniversary lines, bringing collectors an extra bonus item such as the Difficulty Plaque or UNSC Logo.
Halo Universe Series 1 consists of five figures and one 6-inch-scale vehicle:
• Frederic-104 (Halo Legends)
• Romeo (Halo 3: ODST)
• Elite Commando (Halo 3)
• Brute Captain Major (Halo 3)
• Spartan (Multiplayer)
• ODST Drop Pod
Halo Universe Series 1 debuts in October 2012. Available at Walmart, Target, Toys "R" Us, GameStop, local comic book stores, drug stores, and other retailers. MSRP is $12 for figures and $39 for vehicles.

Keep saying it enough times and maybe somebody'll believe you
Re: HALO 4 Action Figures Announced
Mixed feelings about Halo 4, but we'll see how it turns out. One issue I have is with the 'Halo universe' line, I don't see a need for it. All it seems to me is a bunch of figures they missed out cobbled together into a single series; they should have released these with the rest of them, they've missed their chance with them and shouldn't go back to them. Focus on the new series.
