I got down to Toys R Us today to search out the remaining Halo MiniMates from Series 1. Thankfully they were all there at the first TRU so I did not have to go on a hunt for them all over the earth.
The Toys R Us Exclusive version is nice and clean. It looks like it just rolled off the assembly line. Way to clean for what we would expect from a vehicle in the Halo world, but this is still a great vehicle. Well made and sturdy.
UNSC Marine 1 and Spartan ODST (Active Camo):
The Marine has some really nice color variations that give him a unique look. He has a full face under his helmet as we have come to expect from the non-full helmet Halo figures.
The ODST has great details. Of course they are hard to pick up on the camera since he is in his camo, duh! I am really happy with how clear he actually came out. He has a really great gun that is unique from all of the other figures. I hope we get to see it again in a colored version later.
Sgt. Johnson and Spartan CQB (Blue):
Sgt. Johnson is a tough looking guy, and to lead a bunch of Spartans, I would think he would have to be tough. The CQB is a great version of the Spartan Armor. The blue and black really make for a nice combo.
Jorge and Noble 6:
The offering from Halo: Reach brings Jorge and Noble 6. Noble 6 is fairly standard with a slightly different gun from the standard Halo gun. Dark grey and black… can’t go wrong for an armor color.
Jorge is very detailed and very colorful. He comes with his heavy gun, but with some tweaking of the arms, he is actually able to hold it… just don’t touch him after you put the gun in his hands.
Jorge is unique in that he has a face under his full helmet. Now I have said it before that I don’t know much about the game past what I have learned from the toys, but I have to assume we see his face in the game, thus making it okay to put his face under the helmet.
Master Chief and Arbiter:
Well, if they have to have a double from the standard part of the wave and the TRU exclusive, I guess having the Master Chief be the repeat, that is okay. He is a standard Spartan, so it does not matter if there are a few of him running around.
The Arbiter looks great, and comes with two of the hand blade weapons. His helmet comes off to reveal an ugly little face I doubt even a mother could love.
Here is all of Series 1. 2 vehicles and 14 figures. A great collection that really has a nice look. I really hope these do well and gets us other vehicles and hopefully the rest of the Reach soldiers.
I still don’t know what they are talking about. They say it conveniently holds six figures. The Warthog cannot hold six figures. Five in each, and the other four guys have to walk.
