Read on, McFarlane Halo fans…

Halo 5 Guardians McFarlane Buck Figure Revealed

For reasons that I cannot begin to understand (because McFarlane Toys works in unfathomable ways), McFarlane has been eerily silent about figure Halo 5: Guardians figures since the game was released two months ago. And while McFarlane Toys still hasn’t announced anything new, at least they’re finally acknowledging figures that went up for order months ago: the Halo 5 Series 2 figures (including Buck!) have now officially been revealed with hi-res images!

McFarlane Toys Halo 5: Guardians Fred Figure Review!

Halo 5 Guardians Spartan Fred Figure

It’s been a while since I reviewed a McFarlane Toys Halo 5: Guardians figure, and since I’m all hyped up for the video game to be released in two days, I figured now was a good time to get back in the habit!

I was ultimately let-down by the Agent Locke figure I reviewed in the summer, but that didn’t stop me from buying one of my favorite members of Blue Team! The Halo 5 Spartan Fred figure is available online now for about 12 bucks shipped–is he worth your dollars?

McFarlane Halo 5 Guardians Figures Series 1

Sharp-eyed readers may have noticed that amidst my coverage of New York Toy Fair 2015, there wasn’t a single article about McFarlane Toys Halo figures this year. No, that wasn’t an oversight–the McFarlane Toys booth was just an epic disappointment at the 2015 Toy Fair. I feared we were in for another year with just one or two new figures–but I was wrong!

Halo Toy News at New York Toy Fair 2014!

New York Toy Fair 2014 Logo

Every time I don’t post for a few weeks I get a flurry of messages from people asking if I’m closing down Halo Toy News, so let me just touch base and assuage everyone’s fears. No–HaloToyNews is not closing down, nor am I giving it up or turning the site over to someone else to run. There simply has not been any new Halo Toy News lately, so I’ve been giving the site a break rather than prattling on endlessly about nothing. But that dearth of news will be coming to an end next week, when Halo Toy News will be at the New York Toy Fair 2014…
