While the most prominent Halo toy released by Mattel today is unquestionably the Halo Collector Series Ghost Vehicle with Elite Officer 6″ figure, there’s seven other toys released that are much bigger size-wise. In fact, one of the items released today is among the biggest Halo toys ever: the 21″ Mattel Halo Warthog with 12″ Master Chief is now up for order! And in case the Chief needs backup, there’s five other Halo 12″ figures too…
The Marvel Titan Heroes figures are despised by most adult collectors, but I actually don’t think that the Halo 12″ figures are all bad…
These are totally for kids looking for big, low-cost Spartans and not for us adult collectors, but still–I wish these looked a bit better. Even so, the figures feature 15 points of articulation, which is straight-up fantastic compared to the Hasbro Titan Hero range.
- Master Chief
- Spartan Locke
- Spartan Buck
- Red Team Spartan Athlon
- Blue Team Spartan Athlon
- Forerunner Promethean Soldier
Yep, that’s right–there’s actually a Forerunner Promethean Soldier figure in this series! Seems pretty ridiculous that we’re getting a figure already in a Mattel “kiddie” line that McFarlane Toys never made for us in any form, huh? Let’s hope there’s some Grunts and Elites in the future of this 12 inch line as well!
- Step into the Halo universe!
- Deluxe 12″ figures inspired by the new Halo 5: Guardians video game
- 15 points of articulation, iconic design and weapon accessory
- Full collection includes favorite and new characters (each sold separately)
- Makes an exciting gift for casual fans and avid collectors
All of the Halo 12″ figures and the Warthog are now available for order, and are in-stock and shipping as we speak. This size and style isn’t my cup of tea (at all), but I’m definitely feeling a bit of an itch to purchase that gargantuan Warthog! If I do, I’ll definitely post a review once it arrives.
What do you think of the new Halo 12″ figures by Mattel? Will you be enlisting any of these Spartans (or that Forerunner) for your shelves? And what are your thoughts on that humongous 21″ UNSC Warthog Mattel has just released?
