Two powerhouses of pop culture are collaborating, as McFarlane Toys has announced a licensing agreement with Microsoft to produce action figures based on the hit video game series Halo. Halo 3 is scheduled to arrive in stores later this year. The action figure lineup expected to be released is as follows:

-- Master Chief
-- Brute Chieftain
-- Jackal Sniper
-- Grunt 2-Pack
-- Cortana


There is also a three vehicle line-up that includes: Warthog, Chopper and Ghost. These vehicles are die cast metal/plastic, playable toys measuring 3-1/2 inches on a custom base.

The figures are expected to hit store shelves Spring 2008. "Halo is one of the top video game franchises of all time," says McFarlane Toys CEO, Todd McFarlane. "We get to put our company's touch on a sci-fi epic that is visually and thematically stunning. Through its gameplay, Halo has been able to attract a very large and loyal audience, most of whom happen to be our customers as well, which makes this an excellent partnership."

Halo follows the events of an intergalactic war between the last surviving members of the human race and an advanced collection of alien races known as The Covenant. The first title in the series, Halo: Combat Evolved, was the flagship title for Microsoft's Xbox video game console when it was released in 2001. The game achieved both critical acclaim and financial success, selling more than 6 million copies worldwide.

Halo 2 was released in 2004, breaking sales records (more than 7 million copies worldwide) and becoming the fastest-selling media product in US history.

Halo 3 is in development for the Xbox 360, to be released on September 25, 2007.
