January 11, 2008
In a licensing agreement with Microsoft, McFarlane Toys is producing action figures based on the video game series HaloŽ. Here is a look at Series 2 Master Chief, Spartans, ODST Soldier, Arbiter and Brute Stalker.

Thought to be the last surviving SPARTAN soldier, Master Chief possesses a unique trait that has made him both a hero and symbol of hope in the eyes of humanity, and a "demon" in the minds of his enemies. That trait? A rare combination of skill and luck that has seen him through many battles, including the destruction of two HALO installations.

Now, with the Covenant forces edging ever closer to their hallowed, and cataclysmic "final journey," it once again falls upon the Chief's mighty shoulders to take the fight to his enemies.

McFarlane Toys' Master Chief's weapons can attach to his leg and back, and also feature:

- 18 points of articulation
- 2 weapons, interchangeable between figures
- Removable helmet, chest and shoulder armor
- Weapon storage capability on back and right thigh

There are fighters, and then there are soldiers. There are warriors, and then there are SPARTANS. The elite of the elite, humanity's greatest fighting force - and greatest weapon against the hated armies of the Covenant. The unique men and women, hand-picked at a young age to take place in the clandestine SPARTAN program were transformed through science and trained for one thing - victory.

Armor Variations:
EOD, Scout, ODST, Mark VI, EVA, CQB

- 18 points of articulation
- 2 weapons, interchangeable between figures
- Interchangeable helmet, chest and shoulder armor
- Weapon storage capability on back and right thigh

Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODST) are an elite branch of the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) special forces. Comprised of an all-volunteer fighting force of some of the bravest men the UNSC has to offer, the ODST have served valiantly in many campaigns against the Covenant, including engagements on three separate HALO installations.

- 18 points of articulation
- Weapon: Battle rifle

Be mindful of your surroundings, for one never knows when one is being hunted. Invisible to all but the keenest of eyes, Brute Stalkers use light-bending technology known as active camouflage to approach their prey undetected, before unleashing destruction upon their unsuspecting enemies.

- 15 points of articulation
- Weapon storage on back
- Weapon: Spike rifle and carbine

Another weapon in the mighty Covenant arsenal, Drones (or "buggers") are insect-like warriors that attack in swarms -- the buzzing static of their wings offering the only warning of their approach. Drones are dangerous opponents in any battle, as their ability to fly offers them many angles from which to attack, and their erratic flight patterns make for difficult targets.

- 12 points of articulation
- Wings fold up and down
- Weapon: Plasma pistol

Though considered a high commander of the Elites, the Arbiter lost his honor among the Prophets when he failed to protect the first HALO. Disillusioned by the reason behind the Covenant's war against humanity, the Arbiter leads the Elites when they align with the UNSC.

This former foe to Master Chief is ready to finish the fight with the Spartan soldier against the Covenant forces, and the continued threat of the Flood.

- Weapons: Energy sword and carbine rifle
- 18 points of articulation
- Weapon storage capability: On leg and back
