It's 2011. You've seen how movies are made. You've seen how video games are made. But have you seen how video game toys are made?
McFarlane Toys ensures that no Halo fan will want for Halo: Reach action figures this fall. Nor will they starve for bad-ass plastic Halo vehicles in which to stuff the entire Noble Team. It's gonna be all "Boooosh!!" and "Pew-pew-pew!!"
New Halo game? That can mean only one thing. New Halo action figures.
McFarlane toys has released images of their eights series of Halo action figures, due in June. Continuing a pleasant trend, some are all-new figures, including ones from Halo: ODST.
It can be said McFarlane make too many Halo figures. A Spartan with a blue helmet, a Spartan with a blue helmet and a slightly different gun...it's a nickel and dime show.
The seventh series of McFarlane's Halo figures draws from four of the franchise's games, three of its species, numerous gaudy colours and even a little Ninja Gaiden.
McFarlane Toys and Disney are teaming up to deliver a little shirtless Jake Gyllenhaal to the masses, with a massive toy line planned to coincide with the release of the film.
The New York Toy Fair kicked off over the weekend. And video games being big business and all, there were loads of new gaming figures on show. Loads.
Those McFarlane kids sure know how to bleed a licensing opportunity dry. Seemingly out of ideas for new Halo 3 figures, they've announced a range of tiny Halo 3...helmets.
