While the box says this is a Spartan Locus, in actuality, it’s Argus armor, with a Locus helmet attached. An Argus helmet is also included, if you so choose.
This is not a deterrent though folks. This is a VERY cool looking figure regardless of which helmet you choose to have on the figure. Since I already have the Linda figure and I think the Locus is just an awesome helmet, I chose to keep that on it.
On with the pics! (Click pics to make BIGGER)
The box has a large window on the front to display the figure. Instead of a build-a-figure piece, it has an extra different helmet. On the back it shows the different armor pieces and other figures from the first wave of Mattel Halo action figures.
The next few pics are of the detail of the armor.
Sculpt: Excellent 10 of 10 medals!
Articulation: This figure has articulation that is standard for Mattel Halo figures. Superb! 10 out of 10 medals
Paint Application: The red with black and white detail really make this figure pop! It’s triking and will stand out among any collection. That’s a good thing, IMO. 10 of 10 medals
Accessories: The figure set includes an AR and a Magnum as well as an extra helmet. 10 out of 10 medals
Playability: Lots of posing possibilities. What you’ve seen in the article is only a very small sampling of poses this figure can accomplish. 10 of 10 medals
Overall: 50 medals out of a total 50 medals.
Do I recommend this product? Most definitely! As one of the last Mattel Halo figures, this one really delivers on looks. Just a fun figure to own for it’s uniqueness, even though it’s not a named character.
