I remembered being very excited about the Halo figures, then I saw them in a store and they were all about 4 inches tall and felt let down.
I know later there were premium ones a foot tall, and later some ones that were about 8 inches tall. But just the first impression let me down big time.
I remember when McFarlane Toys rocked, and they had a bunch of them, now they are all fantasy figures that are all original. None of them seem as cool as when he made a bunch of game figures like MGS and a ton of anime characters like 6 or 7 years ago.
