You Can Haz Tartarus

TARTARUSJust when you thought Halo-themed knickknacks couldn’t possibly flood the market any more, another wave appears on the horizon from one of the usual suspects. McFarlane Toys recently announced that their seventh Halo action figure assortment will include characters from the Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo Wars video games. Expected to land on a retail shelf near you in January 2010, the specifics about each action figure are outlined below with full pictures located after the jump. At least one of these collectibles will probably appeal to you. And if you’re anything like me, it will be the one with the moobs.

  • SGT. FORGE – Halo Wars figure comes with UNSC Shotgun, pistol (removable) and two frag grenades.
  • ONI OPERATIVE DARE – Halo 3: ODST figure comes with UNSC suppressed magnum and suppressed SMG.

    Woo. I’m glad Dare’s helmet is on.

    • TrAvIs 6t6 says:

      I wonder if it’ll be removable….OH GOD MY EYES!!!

      • xLAS3RP01NT3Rx says:

        To be honest, her helmet’s probably stuck on, considering how big her chin is…

  2. Crazeye0 says:

    Hang on a minute, can’t you already get a Security Spartan with duel maulers?
    As well as that, despite the “Exclusivity” I can already get the Halo weapons pack, with exactly the same weapons from my local game retailer.

  3. Omnicent says:

    Uhh. . .

    Anybody else notice that the Elite’s holding a Carbine when it says Beam Rifle?

    • IcyTreats says:

      Yeah, it was something I noticed instantly because I was playing like 10 minutes ago :P

      The Sgt. Forge one’s real detailed.

  4. Pah! Those are not real moobs….

    • And also no nipples!

  5. BUfels says:

    That rogue spartan really does resemble a general. The sniper, the armour…
    Actually, come to think of it, the hayabusa resembles a noob in much the same way…

  6. StuntDouble2483 says:

    What, no Ellen Anders from Halo Wars? I do not usually refer to women in this manner, as I find it to be crude and almost always unnecessary. However, in this case I feel I must make an exception…

    Damn, that b**** was fine. As. HELL!

    • flurf says:

      By the Prophets, was Anders hot. I would pick up Anders in a SECOND. Miranda Keyes, too. And Cortana, warranting I can find her for under like fifty dollars (impossible). I guess I’ll settle for Forge and Tartarus, then; I’ll admit, they look pretty fine too.

      Also, can anyone confirm/deny if the white-striped Rookie actually is easier to pose than the stripeless prototype? I didn’t know the difference and while it looks cooler than the regular Halo 3 ODST, it poses like balls.
      /Wants to know before I lock on to buying Dare.
      //I’ll buy her anyhow.

      • Skeah says:

        “And Cortana, warranting I can find her for under like fifty dollars (impossible).”

        I have Cortana at home, and it definitely wasn’t $50 when I bought it… Probably more like $20, $25 at Zellers. Furthermore,
        Second link in Google when you type in “mcfarlane cortana”. Granted, it’s USD and only ships to the US, but I’m sure there’s more out there somewhere.

    Yay more reference pictures.

  8. Uccxxxv says:

    Is anyone else contemplating buying two of the weapons packs so that they can have their spartan dual wield Spartan Lasers?

    • SonofMacPhisto says:

      Nah, only ODSTs would do that… ;)

    • bs angel says:

      I am now, thanks!

  9. ya know, someone has a birthday in Jan…. >.>

    • Poopie McGhee says:

      Someone Does in Feb. too….. <.<

      • IcyTreats says:

        Another one’s got one in Feb, too..the 5th to be exact…>.>

    • flurf says:

      Someone doesn’t have a birthday in January or February, but would appreciate an unbirthday gift..

  10. DethPwn says:

    I’m gonna buy Tartarus just so my Simon Belmont can have the Fist of Rukt.

    That may have been the nerdiest sentence ever typed.

    ONI OPERATIVE DARE – Halo 3: ODST figure comes with UNSC suppressed magnum and the chin of Rukt.
