Halo Toy Review: McFarlane 10 inch Spartan Locke Statue

Ah, finally a new McFarlane piece to add to my collection! This has been out for a little bit. I’ve only just had the chance to pick it up. Thankfully, I got it on sale at Toys R Us. The price is normally $29.99. I got it for $19.99. Read on to see what I think of it.

I know some of you like to keep your collections in the box. This statue looks decent in it’s package. Though you are missing out if you don’t take it out and look at all the detail that went into this. The back of the box might be a little misleading to some. You will NOT get the unhelmeted Locke head with every box. It IS exclusive. Yes, I know it’s printed right there, but undoubtedly, someone is going to miss that fact and be upset about it. So just be forewarned.

Spartan Games HUGE Halo Fleet Battles Expansion set!

This is a reblog from Spartan Games website, with some commentary by me at the end of the article): 

Spartan Games Creative Director Neil Fawcett and 343 Industries’ Kenneth Peters provide some more details on the exciting release of the UNSC Punic-class Supercarrier and Covenant Assault Carrier (CAS).

First up is Kenneth Peters from 343 Industries, one of the people tasked with helping Spartan Games keep its Halo tabletop games accurate to canon. Kenneth sets the scene for where these exciting new models fit into the Halo Universe.

CAS ASSAULT CARRIER
Assault carriers are monumental symbols of Covenant power, and among the deadliest implements wielded by the Prophets in their war against humanity. Each assault carrier is a potent instrument of conversion and compliance, capable of deploying thousands of troops and numerous fighter craft, backed by an array of devastating energy projectors that can burn entire continents to ash. A single CAS is sufficient to quell all but the most pernicious heresy, rebellion, or parasite outbreak. Colossally expensive to construct and few in number, the rare loss of an assault carrier is mourned by the entire Covenant.

Promethean Soldier’s face made from Mega Bloks

Every once in awhile, I get an idea for a custom build with Mega Bloks. The new Phaeton Gunship seemed to already have much of what I wanted to do here. That being make a Promethean Soldier’s head. Now, I didn’t have enough pieces to make a fully 3D head. So instead I concentrated on the face with elements of the side and top of the head.

This was made with only ONE set of the Phaeton. No other pieces from any other set were used. So if you want to make this, you can and know exactly what you will need to replicate it.Custom Promethean Soldier face_sm

I worked primarily from the following two graphics to make the face:  Continue reading
