I just got an e-mail from McFarlane this morning that their Halo 2 Master Chief should be in stores now. Of course, your mileage may vary on this.
Here’s a look at the figure, followed by a text blurb from McFarlane’s web site.
I’m referring to the 3-pack of the Evolution of Master Chief from McFarlane.
Here’s McFarlane’s text blurb.
Ten years ago, Halo® 2 made its debut on the original Xbox, and changed multiplayer gaming on consoles forever. To commemorate the tenth anniversary of this influential, fan-favorite game, McFarlane Toys is offering a figure of the Master Chief, just as he appeared in 2004.
Our Halo 2 Master Chief figure captures all the details of this first version of his Mark VI armor – from the five indentations on his hand and ankle armor, to the smooth, undamaged plating on his chest.
We’re loading up our Halo 2 Master Chief figure with an arsenal of second-game-themed weapons. Figure includes dual SMGs, a pair of Brute Plasma Rifles, and the ever-popular Battle Rifle. No matter which weapons you choose, you’ll be ready to fight like you did a decade ago!
Here’s where you can find the figure:
What’s important to note from the list is that Wal*Mart and Toys R Us are NOT on the list. Some of those stores I’ve never heard of.
I was going to take a pass on this, however, since it includes the rather rare red plasma rifle, I’ll pick it up.
