The Second Wave of Halo Anniversary Edition Toys Gets Animated

How many different Master Chief figures can McFarlane Toys make? Oh they're just getting started. The company recently announced series two of the Halo Anniversary Edition figures, featuring the white-striped version of John 117 from the animated Halo Legends short "The Package".

And what a package series two will be. We've got "The Package" version of Master Chief, anime-styled and decorated with the distinctive white accents that John wore during the CG short. Then there's Captain Jacob Keyes in the sharp grey uniform he wears in the Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition. We'll be transported back to the color customization days of Halo 2 with a white and blue version of the Spartan Mark VI, while Mickey from Halo 3: ODST comes built to scale with his fellow ODST members, decked out in stylish black and red. Rounding out the assortment is a double shot of Halo 3's Sentinel and Guilty Spark, the latter of which comes with a reversible blue and red eye, for when it's feeling slightly evil.

As an added bonus, each of the five figures will come with a piece of the series' unique build-a-figure: A 3D representation of the UNSC Logo, the perfect backdrop to your collection.

All this, plus a triple pack of Jerome-092, Douglas-042 and Alice-130, the Spirit of Fire Red Team from Halo Wars.

I've not purchased one figure from the McFarlane collection myself, for fear of reverting to the days when I used to drive around all night looking for gold-painted Spawn figures. Still I can't deny how sexy they'd look on my entertainment center. Perhaps I'll try just one.

Series two is due out in March of 2012.
