I’ve said in earlier reviews of the Wicked Cool Toys “World of Halo” packaging, that I like the design of the package and how it has a strong look to it. With a very large see through plastic window, it’s very easy to see what contents are included. With the package being large, it does make it easier to find on store shelves.

Included with the figure are a stand and a code card. The code card gives you something special for Halo Infinite. To redeem the code from Wicked Cool Toys Halo line, go HERE. Watch my social accounts on twitter and instagram for Code giveaways in the very near future!

As for accessories, you get a Bulldog shotgun. As you can see below, mine was quite bent. This was due to the plastic strap holding it in place being too tight. I’ll be boiling some water and straightening this out. In the meantime, I did temporarily straighten it out by manually bending it in place.

Below is just one action pose you can get the Brute Captain into. There is a ton of articulation for you to play or display with! This is after I bent the Bulldog somewhat in place.

Here’s a closeup of the printed UNSC emblem on the Pilot’s left shoulder. Also note the amount of detail in the hair.

Here is a much more descriptive look at the articulation that the figure has. Obviously, joints on one side are reflected on the other. So both shoulders have ball joints, for example. 
Some of the names I give to these joints may be amended later, if I get word from either 343 or WCT about the correct nomenclature for them.

Views of the Pilot show a lot of detail in the uniform. Plenty of wrinkles and such sculpted into the clothing.

There is a hole in the back vest of the pilot that allows you to place weapons into it (via a pin on the weapon).

Evaluation
Sculpt: Excellent. Lots of detail in the uniform. Everything looks proportionally correct. 10 of 10 medals!
Articulation: This figure has plenty of articulation that will be considered standard with WCT Halo humanoid figures. 9 out of 10 medals
Paint Application: The paint application is very good. While most of the figure is the uniform blue, there are green, gray-ish brown, black and light flesh colors. Each of those are well applied. 10 of 10 medals.
Accessories: The stand is a basic hexognal plate. I like the dirt/grass look of it.As for the weapon, it’s nice to have one of the new ones from Infinite. However, since mine was really bent, that has to be taken into account. Before I gave the evaluation, I checked on the internet to see if others were having this same issue. Unfortunately, I did find several persons claiming the same thing. So this is an issue WCT needs to sort out. 6 out of 10 medals
Playability: Standard playability. It can be posed in many positions. 9 of 10 medals.
Overall: 44 medals out of a total 50 medals.

Do I recommend this product? As a touted new character of Halo Infinite, most definitely! Mystery surrounds the lore of the Pilot and I can’t wait to find out more about him. In the meantime, I definitely suggest getting the Pilot. I have a feeling he’s gong to be integral to Halo Infinite. And if not, well, he’s still a cool figure to own.
