Cortana (Halo 4)

Back when McFarlane Toys announced they would be producing a new, articulated version of Cortana, the A.I. companion of Halo’s Master Chief, everybody hoped for a full-fledged action figure

Spartan Warrior

Spartan Warrior

The level of detail on the Spartan Warrior is quite nice, with deeply recessed panels and heavily textured surfaces. The helmet has a narrower visor and extra armor that lends the appearance of a snout, but the design is still easily identifiable as a UNSC Spartan.

Brute Splicer

Brute Splicer

The Brute Splicer is supposed to be some sort of brawler, and the character design certainly conveys that impression. The Brute has most of his mass distributed onto the upper torso, with impossibly massive arms and a decidedly rotund paunch. The legs are also quite thick, but next to the upper limbs they tend to look ridiculously thin.

Ezio Auditore (The Mentor)

Ezio Auditore The Mentor, wears clothing very similar to the garments he used in the Italian City States, and NECA did a really good job in capturing in plastic the look of the digital models.

I have already reviewed Aquaman and I was quite impressed with him but: What about Black Adam? Well, read all about it in today’s review.

It has been quite a while since I reviewed anything I liked from the DC universe, but last Christmas I got me one of those Injustice: Gods Among Us figure 2-packs.

ODST Drop Pods (Micro Ops)

Being an Halo fan and a recovering wargamer, I was aware that McFarlane Toys had come up with a line of miniatures called Micro Ops, but as a whole, I found these sets to be way overpriced at the time of their release.

Ezio Auditore (Legendary Assassin)

Today’s review will be about the main character in the Assassin’s Creed series of games, none other than Ezio, Auditore Da Firenze in his Legendary Assassin garb.

I was not really expecting NECA to follow through with their 1:18 scale Gears of War action figures. I figured they’d do the first series and leave it at that, but apparently I was wrong and they came up with three more figures for Series 2.

Augustus Cole

The last character in NECA’s second wave of 1:18 scale Gears of War action figures is Augustus Cole. Again, not having played the GoW videogames, I have no real personal connection to the character, but I will concede that he is possibly the best looking in his wave.

I am still one generation behind as far as gaming consoles go, meaning that I have no means of playing Borderlands 2, a game that served as inspiration for the subject of today’s review.

Marcus Fenix

The latest figure I picked up from NECA’s 1/18 scale Gears of War line is none other than the main hero, Marcus Fenix. Apparently he already was a recognized war hero even before the Locust War broke out, but again, just by looking at the figure you can tell he is supposed to be a tough-as-nails warrior.

Damon Baird

The second figure I picked up from the 1/18 Gears of War line by NECA is Damon Baird. Again, not having played the game, all I know about the character is what it says in the back of the card, which is actually very little besides of him being a quick thinker, somewhat of a tactical and mechanical genius, as well as having insubordination issues.

I was not camping at the bit back when NECA announced that they were going to produce action figures in the 1:18 scale for the Gears of War videogame. They already had a fairly successful run producing larger 8-inch scale figures for that same license, so I failed to see the reasoning behind the scale change.

Starkiller

Let me start by saying that I like Star Wars. And I like video games. And, obviously, I also like action figures, so it is pretty much a given that I would have more than a passing interest in whatever exists in the intersection of those three sets.

Kat (Series 6)

One thing that stood out for me from the Halo: Reach game, was the inclusion of female Spartan soldiers with distinctly female sets of armor. Sure, there is only one such character in the game, but that didn’t prevent McFarlane Toys from producing a generic pink Spartan as well as a couple of versions of Lieutenant Commander Kat.

Captain Keyes

One of the more prominent characters in the Halo mythos is UNSC Captain Jacob Keyes. He was the CO of the USNC vessel Pillar of Autumn from the first Halo game and he was also included in several of the Halo novels written after the game’s success.

Spartan Mk. VI

The Spartan I’m reviewing today is somewhat unusual. You’ll see, when McFarlane Toys started doing figures for the Halo: Reach game, they changed the scale slightly, so all of the figures they had released previously for Halo 3 ended up being shorter than the new ones.
