This was in the latest Bungie update. These are BY FAR the best looking halo action figures I have ever seen.

OH LORD! Look at the chief's neck! :fail:

Other than the fact that the picture makes it seem long, I'd say it looks awesome.

Also, brute is awesome. :awesome:

I thought I'd add these too cuz they look so badass, the Jackal looks liek a velociraptor lol. BTW Cortana looks HOT! I wonder if that's what Halsey really looked like when she was younger.

Oh, awesome. Jackal looks great and the campaign colored chief is better than the red one, IMO.

Yeah the jackals look amazing, and I love this brute chopper:

:puke:oh... my.. well, those look too cheesy. They are pretty, but after being an avid kenner star wars action figure collector from 95' to 00' iv'e already seen perfection with action figures. Those are dolls... not action figures.

Looks like they have moveable arms, heads and fingers.
The neck is just overly long cos they wanted him to pose like that, you can change it if you want to I think.
The Brute ones have incredible detail.

Freakin' awesome. I'll get my little bro a nice MC action figure.

Jesus, the jackals look like the bastard child of a velociraptor and an achyoptarychs (spelling).

Everything looks awesome, how articulative are the figures?

Speaking of them, I see the sniper jackels now have armour....oh fun.

I'm sure the majority of the kids actually buying the things won't think they are dolls.

Cortana doesn't look like Cortana.

Cortana *_*

September 8th, 2007, 04:48 PM
Well she doesn't look as bad as in Halo 1. In Halo 1 she just looked REALLY weird, although we didn't think that as it was the first time we saw her. In Halo 2 though she looked more like a.....female.

Halo 3, well it's hard to tell from a plastic model, but there was a little clip in the E3 07 trailer with her in it, and I think I remember her looking pretty much the same except next-genified.

It can make sense for her to change her appearance from Halo 1 to Halo 2, as there's a calm period between each one so she can relax and think about other things like her looks.
But Halo 3 starts right where Halo 2 left off with no calm period between, and with Cortana trapped with Gravemind, I doubt changing her look is on top of the to-do list.

Bungie like to make things make sense, even when it comes to playing multiplayer (hence why they don't allow you to be multiple spartans in co-op, cos it won't make sense with the story), so if it isn't appropriate to change her appearance, then they won't.

The above and below images are of the Kotubukiya Halo 3 statues. These 12" statues will retail for $99.99 will be available this fall.

Those aren't all 12" statues, those are from Mcfarlane toys or whatever, the only statue I believe is the first one.

I can finally think that the jackals are badasses now.

I love the brute figure.

I wish they'd just left Cortana how she looked in Halo 1... her boobs get bigger with each game and now they're even jiggly... every fanboy is going to want a cortana action figure to feel up :fail:

I want a jackal with a shield :awesome:
they actually look scary now :O

also, cortana's hips are huge >__>
@fried metroid: atleast she doesn't have nippels.

It's just the angle of the image combined with her off-centered stance. Here's a better angle.

I hate how characters look so different between games. I mean, Jackals have gone from having cloven hooves to clawed feet in the timespace of a few months, what the fuck.

Still, cool.

Her boobs are larger and jiggle in Halo 3. :eng101:
*Que Reaper Man to come in with a boob picture*

Anyway, the time period between H1 and H2 was anything but calm for Cortana. She was being pushed to her operating limits, taking forever (Compared to her normal speeds) to do stuff. I mean, your computer would, too, if it had a 500 Terabyte .zip file containing all the stuff about Halo (The weapon, not the game), plus another 150 terabyte .zip holding a Covenant AI she captured.
I assume she uploaded this to Earth's database as soon as she got in a terminal, and maybe then she changed her looks, I don't know. She looks pretty much the same, but with different hair, really. I like the H2 version best, though. Need to get a closer look of the H3 version before I pass judgment.

Also, on topic, I like the MCs. Too bad they're going to cost me $99 (That's about 198 to the Europeans, considering $1 = 2). I may get one of the Kenner action figures though, they look nice as well. I think I'll be getting the Hog, one of my favorite vehicles.

he's bi fyi.

When I first got H2 i was like "wtf cortana has long hair get this shit off my TV" but I got used to it. I don't really have a preference between the H1 and H2 cortana tbh.

tbh, jackals remind me of the kroot these days.

I thought Halo 2 Cortana looked the best out of 3, with longer hair.

Actually pretty much her whole face had changed. She had different cheek bones and eyes, that's all I can really remember of her features, but she's definately changed quite a bit - but the point is is that she had some spare time with no interuption with wars or covenant (etc).

Also, any fan boy should know AI have a different age than humans for when they hit puberty. Jeez, give her a break :/

I agree , I like the old aged style grunts.... the halo 3 grunts look more old and a little like a star wars type figure. I wish they kept the grunts the same :/

they look more like statues than action figures to me, unless the master chief has a secret super karate chop action button hidden somewhere.
