Folks over at www.spawn.com forums are posting photos of the newly released 12" Halo 3 Blue Spartan figure (below). These are selling for $26.97 exclusively at Wal-marts everywhere NOW and should be hitting soon if you can't find them (nothing in STL yet :( :() -

Impressions? the scale seems a bit small considering a Spartan should be around 7 feet tall (14" in 1:6) but it's still pretty good considering...



And for less than $27?!? I'll probably get two or three just to customize... :D :D

In 1/6 scale, the body armor would be a bit on the snug side, but the neck and helmet (compared to the GI standing next to him) would be for a pinhead. Looks good, but best left away from onesix figures. Full scale would've been pretty impressive.

I think cdn_rhino is right in that it's beggin' to be hacked up and made into multiple figures - I can see using the chest armor, forearms/hands and calf/feet on a 1:6 scale sci-fi military custom figure... ;)

I think it looks pretty awesome. I have already sent the misses a request to keep an eye out. They are also supposed to release a brown Spartan as a Toys R Us exclusive and then a regular Master Chief model, both in November.

Too bad about the scale because it looks like a really good sculpt. I notice the armour is not damaged. I wounder if the master chief will come with damage.

But for the price, you can't miss.

I might just have to pick up a couple of these. Great price for sure. A repaint would make for a good space marine figure for my Joes or even using the parts for some gear stacshed in hangar dio.

Im definately going to have to pick one of these up. Looks good for the price. Would be cool if the armor could be dremeled out and put on a dragon body or something... probably be way too much work though. Good find nonetheless.

I actually have three walmarts within a 15 minute drive of where I live in NJ (Brick, Toms River and Howell/Lakewood), so if they are open Monday, I'll see if they have it on their shelves. I'll definitely post one way or the other to let everyone here on the Jersey shore know what I find...and I promise I'll leave a few behind on the shelves!:thumb

I saw one yesterday and passed. I wasn't impressed because of the size issue. I did think about getting it to hack up, but I had the same thoughts about the helmet being for a pin-head.

Has anybody seen the Halo Master Chief bobble head? Some bobble heads are perfect 1/6 head sculpts. It may be oversized but I haven't seen it in person so don't know for sure. If it's to scale it may be possible to replace the "pin head" from above with a suitable vinyl hs and hollowed out bobble head helmet.
