This July marks the release of McFarlane Toys biggest Halo line to date -- Halo: Reach Series 4.
After three best-selling lines of Halo: Reach figures, we've got plenty of great new collectibles ready to get you through to the holiday season. This special summer series is packed with figure firsts: our first unhelmeted Noble Team member, our first Halo: Reach Brute figure, our first Halo 3-packs, our first Halo: Reach armor packs, and even our first Halo vehicle in multiplayer colors!
Individual Carded Figures
The Noble Team Spartans of Halo: Reach, unlike Master Chief, are seen both with their helmets and without. This new, alternate version of Noble Five brings back Jorge with his unhelmeted appearance. Figure includes Jorge's signature M247T Heavy Machine Gun and backpack.
The imposing Jiralhanae "Brutes" are first encountered in Halo: Reach as Covenant shock troops, tearing apart the urban metropolis of New Alexandria. Our first Halo: Reach Brute action figure is the most commonly encountered version, the Brute Minor. Figure includes a Brute Spike Rifle and Plasma Grenade.
This hero-level Elite invader features the all-new, eye-catching gold armor of the General rank. Figure includes matching Fuel Rod Gun and Plasma Grenade.
This Unggoy specialist features the new two-pronged methane tank design introduced in Halo: Reach, and the orange-red armor color that identifies him as a Major. Figure includes Needler and Plasma Grenade.
These elite Troopers, deployed from the cruiser Pillar of Autumn, can be seen in the climactic level of Halo: Reach – assisting Noble Six and Emile as they race to deliver "The Package" to safety. These Marines feature distinctive elements such as darker toned camouflage, fully enclosed helmets, and Base Security shoulder armor. Figure includes Assault Rifle.
Spartan Mark V (male) (team blue/team blue)
The Mark V armor is a true fan-favorite, and has been featured in multiple games throughout the Halo series. This Spartan features the iconic armor in classic Blue Team colors. Figure includes Assault Rifle and Frag Grenade.
Spartan CQC (male) (rust/rust) [Toys "R" Us exclusive]
The CQC helmet is standard equipment for missions involving close-quarters combat, including boarding missions and urban operations. Figure comes with matching CQC shoulders, Grenade Launcher, and Frag Grenade. Exclusive to Toys "R" Us.
Spartan EVA (male) (team red/team red) [Target exclusive]
The EVA helmet is standard equipment for missions involving extra-vehicular activity. Figure comes with matching EVA shoulders, Sniper Rifle and Frag Grenade. Exclusive to Target.
Spartan ODST (male) (steel/pale) [GameStop exclusive]
The Spartan ODST helmet shares the design of the Orbital Drop Shock Troopers’ version, but has been upgraded for use with MJOLNIR. Figure also includes ODST shoulders and chest, with a steel/pale paint scheme reminiscent of the troopers from Halo 3: ODST. Figure comes armed with a DMR and Frag Grenade.
Carded Air Assault Armor Pack (rust/rust) [Toys "R" Us exclusive]
Our popular boxed Armor Pack program is now available with the smaller cost and packaging of a single figure! These exclusive carded Armor Packs are perfect for collectors who already have several Spartan figures and just want new armor pieces for them. This abridged set is packaged in a standard blister card and includes an Air Assault helmet, two FJ/Para shoulders, and a default chest; an ODST helmet, two ODST shoulders, and a UA/ODST chest; and an EVA helmet, two EVA shoulders, and a Collar/Breacher chest.

Carded Air Assault Armor Pack (team red/team red) [Target exclusive]

Spartan Hologram 2-Pack
The Armor Abilities of Halo: Reach offer new ways to customize your Spartan to fit your playstyle. If deception is your preferred tactic, the Hologram ability will have your foes shooting at decoys while you remain in cover. This set includes an updated version of Noble Six, reflecting his default appearance in Halo: Reach, and a special "hologram" figure in translucent blue; just like when the ability is activated in the game.
Boxed Armor Packs
Spartan Air Assault Custom Armor Packs (steel/steel and team blue/team blue)
Halo: Reach offers players more armor variety and Spartan customization options than any previous Halo game by far. With this new emphasis on Spartan individuality, and a greatly expanded Armory, we knew action figure Armor Packs were a must for Halo: Reach. Like the Halo 3 armor packs, these new sets include one base Spartan figure and four complete sets of helmet, shoulders, and chestplates for hundreds of mix-and-match combinations.
The Spartan Air Assault Custom Armor Pack includes a base male Spartan wearing the Air Assault helmet, two FJ/Para shoulders, default chest, and FJ/Para knee guards; plus three sets of supplemental, interchangeable armor. Additional armor sets are ODST (helmet, two shoulders, and chest), EVA (helmet, two shoulders, and a Collar/Breacher chest), and CQC (helmet, two shoulders, and a Tactical/LRP chest). Each boxed Armor Pack also includes a bonus helmet; this one contains the Military Police. Set is available in either default Steel or Team Blue.
Spartan Grenadier Armor Packs (steel/steel and team red/team red)
The Spartan Grenadier Armor Pack is based on Noble Team's armor, and includes a base male Spartan wearing the Grenadier helmet, two Grenadier shoulders, Collar/Grenadier chest, and Grenadier knee guards; plus three sets of supplemental, interchangeable armor. Additional armor sets are Commando (helmet, two shoulders, and chest), Scout custom (Scout helmet, two Sniper shoulders, and Tactical/Patrol chest), and EVA [C] custom (EVA [C] helmet, Security shoulder, Operator shoulder, and Assault/Sapper chest). Each boxed Armor Pack also includes a bonus helmet; this one contains the Mark VI. Set is available in either default Steel or Team Red.
We've got two more Armor Packs coming in Halo: Reach Series 5. By collecting all four, you'll have every piece of basic helmet, shoulder, and chest armor available in the game!
Pillar of Autumn Mongoose Set
This Mongoose vehicle set is inspired by the exciting final level of Halo: Reach. In the finale, Noble Six must deliver the artificial intelligence, Cortana, safely to the cruiser Pillar of Autumn – setting in motion the events that started the first Halo game, Halo: Combat Evolved. In one memorable scene, Noble Six and Emile go for a wild ride aboard a Mongoose ultra light all-terrain vehicle, dodging enemy gunfire, falling drop pods, and even a massive Scarab assault platform! This set includes Noble Six, a standard campaign green Mongoose vehicle, and, as a bonus accessory, the transport tube used to carry Cortana's fragile memory matrix.
Mongoose with Red Team Scout
The Mongoose ultra light all-terrain vehicle, first introduced in Halo 3, gets a colorful new upgrade in Halo: Reach. For the first time, the Mongoose can appear in different colors, each representing one of the standard Halo multiplayer teams. For this set, we've chosen classic "Team Red" for both the Mongoose and its Spartan driver. This set includes a red Mongoose and red Spartan with Scout helmet, JFO and Grenadier shoulders, and default chest and knees for optimal riding posability.
Spartan Specter 3-Pack
Active Camouflage has been a staple of the Halo series of video games. In Halo: Reach, the power of invisibility returns as an Armor Ability – and with a new twist. Available as part of the "Specter" equipment loadout, Active Camo now varies based on the speed of the camouflaged Spartan's movement. A Spartan Specter that stands perfectly still is nearly completely invisible, but a Spartan that moves too much will be faintly visible to enemies! Move too fast, or run out of activation time, and your Spartan will return to full visibility. This unique 3-pack represents all stages of a Specter's invisibility, showing one Spartan in three distinctly different versions. Figures include the cutting-edge Mark VI helmet, UA/Multi-Threat shoulders, UA/ODST chest, and default knee guards. The fully-visible Spartan features a dark Maroon paint scheme, the completely invisible version is cast in clear plastic, and the partially visible version features translucent colored plastic. Each version comes with the close-quarters Shotgun weapon – perfect for unloading on that unsuspecting enemy you've stealthily snuck up behind.
One of the most popular Halo gametypes returns in Halo: Reach – the "humans vs. zombies" mode called Infection. In this mode, one player is chosen at random to become a "zombie." Anyone then killed by the zombie joins the ranks of the undead! Halo Zombies can easily be identified by their unique sickly green armor color and their exclusive use of the close-range Covenant Energy Sword. Human players had better keep their distance and pick them off with a long-range weapon like the DMR! This special 3-pack celebrates the fun, fast-paced Infection gametype by including two Spartan Zombies facing off against a lone Spartan Human. The "last man standing" features an ODST helmet with Gold visor, Sniper and FJ/Para shoulders, UA/Base Security chest, Tactical/Trauma Kit utility, and FJ/Para knee guards. One Spartan Zombie comes with a Pilot helmet with Black visor, Collar/Breacher [R] chest with skeletal robotic arm, Jump Jet shoulder, and Grenadier knee guards. The other Zombie is equipped with a HazOp helmet with Black visor, Operator shoulders, Collar/Breacher [R] chest with skeletal robotic arm, and FJ/Para knee guards. Each Spartan Zombie is painted in "zombie green" and comes with an Energy Sword. Spartan Human has a blue & gold paint scheme and comes with a DMR.
Halo: Reach Series 4 will be available in July at major toy retailers everywhere, including Walmart, Target, Toys "R" Us, and GameStop.
