Jun (Series 6)

If there is something I regret about collecting the Halo: Reach action figures made by McFarlane Toys, is playing the long game to get the helmeted version of Jun released in Series 3, which to this day is still missing from my collection.

Brute Major

At a glance, the military ranks in the alien Covenant from the Halo series of games is quite simple. While the ranks system of the Elites and the Grunts tends to get cluttered by very specific specialties, the Brutes seem to do fine by just going with Minors, Majors and Chieftains

UNSC Mongoose (Combat Edition)

One of the new licensees for the Halo franchise is Jada Toys, a company better known for their line of die-cast cars, so it was something of a surprise when the announcement came that they were one of the license-holders to produce toys based in Halo 4.

Elite Ranger

One of the most difficult enemy types encountered in the Halo games is the Elite Ranger. These Elites are equipped with rocket packs that enable them to fly around and they are usually armed with very powerful weapons. Obviously, McFarlane Toys had to include them in their fifth series of figures for the Halo: Reach line.

Halo Megabloks Series 5 & 5.5

Well, one of my guilty pleasures are blind-packaged minifigs. And there is a good deal to choose from, from LEGO to the more varied Megabloks offerings.

Niccolo Machiavelli

The third (and last) historical figure that makes an appearance in Ubisoft’s Assassins Creed: Brotherhood game is Niccolo Machiavelli. Most people know him because he wrote the book The Prince, which is compendium of political principles and whose most paraphrased quotes are “It is better for a ruler to be feared, than to be loved” and “the ends justify the means”.

One thing I like most about conventions is the chance to find items that I had no idea they existed at all. One such item is this Leonardo Da Vinci action figure from Unimax.

Sub-Zero (Mortal Kombat Klassics)

The other day, I was at a store, perusing the action figure pegs and I came across a 4 inch. Sub-Zero figure that looked substantially different than the one I reviewed not long ago. A closer inspection revealed that Jazwares made another line of MK figures under the “Klassic” moniker, and this was one of them.

Well, after five series of action figures based on the Halo: Reach license, there is only so much you can do to keep market interest high series after series, especially when the line relies in reusing three or four basic body molds for everything.

Seth

The figure I’m reviewing today is probably the less exciting from Jazwares’ Super Street Fighter IV line. Seth is famed for being something of a disappointment as far as end game boss characters go because of his character design and because his techniques are copied from the special moves used by other characters in the game.

One thing I never really understood is why in Street Fighter Capcom decided to have two characters that played basically the same. Of course, I’m refering to Ryu and the subject of todays review, Ken.

El Fuerte

El Fuerte is designed to be an homage to Lucha Libre, although the actual costume draws from several other sources, like Japanese and American wrestling tropes. A good deal of treatises can be written about the specific influences that can be seen on El Fuerte’s costume, but the thing that immediately grabbed my interest is that he is a masked wrestler.
