Elite Ascetic

McFarlane Toys released this Silver Elite Ascetic as part of Series 8 in the Halo action figure line. As with the Spartan figures, the Elites share the same basic body among them with only a few new pieces of armor that help differentiate one rank from another.

One of the things I look forward come summer, are the Summer Sales from various vendors in Mexico City. One such retailer is Blockbuster, which I thought was a rather unusual place to find toys, until a few weeks ago.

Brute Captain in VISR Mode

The only other McFarlane Halo figure decorated with VISR markings is this Brute Captain released in Series 8. Similarly to the Rookie figure released with the Mongoose vehicle, this figure is basically a repaint of a previously released figure from wave 6, the Brute Bodyguard from the Halo 3: ODST collection.

In the Halo games, the Flood combines traits from both the Alien series facehuggers with the relentlessness of zombies, depending of their state of evolution.

One thing you’ll notice from the early series of the Halo figures made by McFarlane toys, is that the bulk of them is comprised of Spartan variants, mixed in with a few of the more representative Covenant warriors.

Tartarus

I don’t buy toys from McFarlane all that often, because for a time they focused more on producing statuettes rather than action figures, and the quality of their materials was rather poor, despite sporting stellar sculpting and great paintjobs.

After number two, I started playing them on PC. We were watching something recently on TV, and they used the […]

This series America’s Army Real Heroes was created for Jazwares based on the America’s Army video game. The cool thing about […]
