Images of Mcfarlane Toys Halo Reach Series Wave 5 and more

Spawn.com has just announced and posted new images on the upcoming Halo Reach figures including Wave 5 Single Pack, Weapons Pack, 2 Packs, and more. You can check them out below and don't forget to stay tuned to Halo Toy Universe on Blogger for more

Carter (unhelmeted)
The Noble Team Spartans of Halo: Reach, unlike Master Chief, are seen both with their helmets and without. This new, alternate version of Noble One brings back Carter with his unhelmeted appearance. Figure includes the new Spartan Laser weapon and a Frag Grenade.

Brute Chieftain
The tribal Jiralhanae troops are led by their Chieftains – towering Brutes, easily recognized by their ornate armor and powerful weaponry. Our second Brute figure from Halo: Reach captures every detail of the new look of this fearsome enemy. Figure includes the new Gravity Hammer weapon and a Plasma Grenade.

Skirmisher Murmillo
The Covenant Skirmisher makes its return in Halo: Reach Series 5, in the upgraded form of the Murmillo rank. Murmillos feature orange armor and a protective facemask, but really stand out on the battlefield due to the small energy shields they wear on each forearm. Figure also includes a Plasma Pistol and a Plasma Grenade.

Elite Ranger
Jetpacks aren't only for multiplayer in Halo: Reach. While the UNSC has ODST Troopers with jetpacks, the Covenant have their own campaign character with aerial ability: the Elite Ranger. The Ranger rank and armor style features white armor with an enclosed helmet, integrated jetpack, and fully-sealed bodysuit for operations in the vacuum of space. Figure includes the all-new Focus Rifle weapon and a Plasma Grenade.

Spartan Gungnir custom (male) (olive/tan)
This heavily customized male Spartan features a top-of-the-line armor selection consisting of only the most expensive items available. From the Gungnir helmet with CBRN/HU/RS attachments to the Assault/Sapper chest with robotic arm, down to the Grenadier knee guards, this soldier spares no expense for protection and style. Figure features olive and tan armor, and includes the new Rocket Launcher weapon and a Frag Grenade.

Halo: Reach Weapons Pack
Need more firepower for your figure collection? Build your Halo armory with this assortment of weapons from Halo: Reach. This pack includes seven different UNSC and Covenant weapons, grenades, and a Spartan Jetpack armor ability as an added bonus. Set consists of an Assault Rifle, Plasma Rifle, DMR, Needle Rifle, Shotgun, Concussion Rifle, Magnum, Frag Grenade, Plasma Grenade, and Spartan Jetpack.

Spartan Security (male) (team blue/team blue) [Toys "R" Us exclusive]
The popular Security helmet returns in an updated form in Halo: Reach – and the new helmet makes its action figure debut in Halo: Reach Series 5. Figure is ready for team-based multiplayer with his all-blue color scheme and includes Grenade Launcher and Frag Grenade. Exclusive to Toys "R" Us.

Spartan Operator (male) (team red/team red) [Target exclusive]
The Operator armor was developed exclusively for members of ONI's Beta-5 Asymmetrical Action Group. Figure is ready for team-based multiplayer with his all-red color scheme and includes Spartan Laser and Frag Grenade. Exclusive to Target.

Carded CQB Custom Armor Pack (team red/team red) [Target exclusive]
Our popular boxed Armor Pack program is now available with the smaller cost and packaging of a single figure! These exclusive carded Armor Packs are perfect for collectors who already have several Spartan figures just want new armor pieces for them. This abridged set is packaged in a standard blister card and includes a CQB helmet, two UA/Multi-Threat shoulders, and a UA/Multi-Threat chest; a Security helmet and shoulder with a Base Security shoulder and chest; and a Mark V helmet, two Mark V shoulders, and a UA/Counter Assault chest. All armor pieces are in the bright "Team Red" color to match the Spartan Operator Target exclusive Spartan action figure.

Covenant Spec Ops
This follow-up to last series' Spartan Specter 3-pack continues the stealth theme with a pair of Covenant troops from the Special Operations branch.

The Elite Spec Ops figure (introduced in Halo: Reach Series 3), with its dark gray armor, was already hard to see. This new version features the sneaky Sangheili with his active camouflage ability activated, granting him nearly complete invisibility.

His partner, the Grunt Spec Ops, is also designed for stealth and secrecy. This rank features a facemask and goggles, a two-pronged methane tank, and a dark black color scheme. Plus, if you've been collecting Grunts since Halo: Reach Series 1, this figure completes your collection of all five Unggoy ranks.

This 2-pack includes a clear Elite Spec Ops figure with Energy Sword, and a Grunt Spec Ops figure with Fuel Rod Gun. Each figure also includes a Plasma Grenade.

Spartan CQB Custom Armor Packs (Steel)
Spartan CQB Custom Armor Packs (Rust)
The Spartan CQB Custom Armor Pack includes a base male Spartan wearing the CQB helmet, two UA/Multi-Threat shoulders, matching UA/Multi-Threat chest, and default knee guards; plus three sets of supplemental, interchangeable armor. Additional armor sets are Security (Security helmet and shoulder, Base Security shoulder, and UA/Base Security chest), Operator (helmet, two shoulders, and HP/Parafoil chest), and Mark V (helmet, two shoulders, and a UA/Counter Assault chest).

Each boxed Armor Pack also includes a bonus helmet; this one contains the EOD. Set is available in either default Steel or Sage. 

Exodus Mongoose Set
The Halo: Reach level "Exodus" portrayed a major turning point in the Battle of Reach: the military's shift in priorities from defense... to evacuation.

The Mongoose set inspired by this memorable level includes a Mongoose from the beachfront Caracalla Park area of New Alexandria, with mud splatter and battle-worn paint effects to represent the ongoing defeat and destruction of the UNSC's defenses.

The Exodus Mongoose Set also includes a new version of the ODST Jetpack Trooper from the cargo port area of New Alexandria (first introduced in Halo: Reach Series 2). This updated version reflects the character's appearance in the final game, including the distinctive ODST chestplate, shoulders, and wrists.

Mongoose with Team Blue EOD (custom)
In the Rocket Race gametype, four teams of two players each must escort their VIP to the level's objective as quickly as possible. But the VIPs are no passive passengers: each is equipped with a Rocket Launcher – the perfect tool for blasting opponents off course!

This Mongoose set includes a Mongoose in Blue Team colors and a matching blue Spartan with EOD helmet, blue visor, HAZOP and CQC shoulders, Assault/Commando chest, Grenadier knee guards, and Rocket Launcher. 

Noble Team Deluxe Boxed Set
The 2010 blockbuster video game, Halo: Reach, introduced players to the six heroic Spartans of Noble Team, the veteran combat unit assigned to defend the UNSC’s military stronghold against the alien Covenant invaders. Now, for the first time, you can get all six action figures of the main characters – Carter, Kat, Jun, Emile, Jorge, and Noble Six - of Halo: Reach together in one box!

New McFarlane Toys: Halo Reach Wave 6 And More Action Figures Announced On Spawn.com

Todd Mcfarlane's website, Spawn.com, has recently announced the future arrival of plenty of new toys coming sometime in 2012. The long list includes the classics single packs, 2 packs, and a few 3 packs and more with a description of the product soon to come. Some of them include a few Reach members unhelmeted, and even a few repaints that by the sound of it must be awesome. Check them out in the list below. Unfortunately no photos  

Update: I found photos on ToyWiz.com, they are not the toys but they do help understand how the figure will look. 

"Our best-selling line of Halo: Reach action figures returns for a sixth series in early 2012. Get ready, because we're bringing more Noble Team Spartans, more fearsome Elites, more massive Brutes, and a special emphasis on what keeps the fans coming back to Halo: Reach -- multiplayer action! With single figures, two-packs, three-packs, and accessory packs, this series has something for everyone." 

Individual Carded Figures

Jun (unhelmeted)
The Noble Team Spartans of Halo: Reach, unlike Master Chief, are seen both with their helmets and without. This new, alternate version of Noble Three brings back Jun with his unhelmeted appearance. Figure includes his signature Sniper Rifle and a Frag Grenade.


Kat (unhelmeted)
The Noble Team Spartans of Halo: Reach, unlike Master Chief, are seen both with their helmets and without. This new, alternate version of Noble Two brings back Kat with her unhelmeted appearance. Figure includes her signature Magnum and a Frag Grenade.


 Brute Major
The fearsome Jiralhanae, better known as Brutes, dominate the battlefield with their raw strength and savagery. Only those warriors who have proven themselves in battle may earn the right to wear the distinctive gold armor of the Major class. Figure comes with Spike Rifle and Plasma Grenade.


 Elite Zealot
The Covenant dispatch Elite advance teams to hunt down artifacts of value to their religion. Such teams are small, nimble, and almost always Zealot-class. Our latest Elite figure features the unique armor and maroon color of the Sangheili Zealot. Figure comes with Concussion Rifle and Plasma Grenade.


 Sabre Pilot
When the planet Reach was threatened by a Covenant supercarrier, Noble Team initiated the daring Operation: UPPER CUT to take it down. Noble Six and Jorge took the lead, but they couldn't have succeeded without the assistance of the brave Sabre pilots of Echo Team. Our Sabre Pilot figure features the simple blue flightsuit and enclosed helmet of the UNSC Air Force -- essential for the cramped cockpit conditions and proximity to the vacuum of space. Figure comes with DMR.


Spartan HazOp (male) (rust/rust) 
Some operations are considered hazardous even for a fully armored Spartan. These ops call for the specialized HazOp armor set. This Spartan features the Hazardous Operations helmet and shoulders, orange "rust" paint, and includes a Focus Rifle and a Plasma Grenade. Exclusive to Toys "R" Us.

Spartan Recon (male) (team red/team red)
Developed in ONI's Beta-5 Division Ordnance Testing Facility, the Recon armor was intended to offer stealth capabilities with little or no loss of endurance. This figure comes with matching Recon helmet, shoulders, and chestplate; is painted in bright "team one" red; and includes the intimidating Rocket Launcher weapon and a Frag Grenade. Exclusive to Target.

Spartan JFO (male) (white/white)
The Joint Fires Observer helmet is reserved for Spartans of Lieutenant Colonel rank and above. Figure comes with matching JFO helmet and shoulders, white armor, a Plasma Grenade, and an all-new weapon: the devastating Target Locator. Exclusive to GameStop.

Boxed 2-Packs

Team Objectives
Our first-ever Halo Accessory Pack brings the action of Halo: Reach multiplayer to your figure collection! Stage an epic match of Capture the Flag between your Red Team Spartans and Blue Team Spartans with detailed replicas of the highly coveted team flags -- or pit your players against one another in a heated round of Assault with the Capture Plate and Assault Bombs. Want to throw an Elite or two into the mix? We've even included the Covenant version of the Assault Bomb, first introduced in the new map, Breakpoint. The Team Objectives Set includes a team red Spartan Mark V with Assault Rifle, a Red Flag with detachable base, Blue Flag with detachable base, UNSC Assault Bomb, Covenant Assault Bomb, and a Capture Plate.

Halo: Reach introduced several new gametypes to Halo multiplayer, including the fast-paced, chaotic mode known as Headhunter. In this free-for-all frenzy, players fight to collect flaming skulls and return them to the moving scoring zone. Whoever has collected the most at the end of the round wins! Our Headhunter 2-pack includes two Spartans and five flaming skulls for them to fight over. Player one is a male Spartan EVA custom with green and yellow armor, equipped with a DMR. Player two is a male Spartan Commando custom with violet and yellow armor, equipped with a Sniper Rifle. The five skulls included in this set all feature a unique sculpt, with flames rising from a different area of each elusive prize.

Boxed 3-Packs

The multiplayer action continues with an expanded pack of figures based on the high-stakes, Spartan vs. Elite mode known as Invasion. On the Boneyard map, the Sangheili invaders team up to infiltrate a UNSC shipbreaking yard and steal a Data Core full of military secrets. The humans get their chance to infiltrate the enemy on the Spire map, which features a team of Spartans infiltrating a heavily guarded Covenant tower. Our Invasion 3-pack includes a red team Spartan Grenadier custom with Grenade Launcher, a blue team Elite General with Plasma Repeater, and both a UNSC

Long Night of Solace
The unforgettable Halo: Reach campaign mission "Long Night of Solace" told the tale of Noble Team's courageous operation to infiltrate and destroy an orbiting Covenant supercarrier. For the first time in the Halo game series, Spartans took the fight into space, utilizing Noble Six's training as a pilot of the experimental Sabre spacecraft. Joining Six in the cockpit was his Spartan-II teammate, Jorge. Together, they faced waves of Covenant defenders, in both artificial gravity and low-gravity environments, to plant a bomb aboard their target and hopefully escape to fight the next battle. Our Long Night of Solace 3-pack commemorates this daring raid with a trio of figures from Operation: UPPERCUT. Set includes the unhelmeted version of Jorge with his Machine Gun Turret, the rare gold-armored version of the Elite Ranger, and Noble Six with Magnum and the all-new M-Spec Re-Entry Pack.

Small Vehicle Sets

Generator Defense
The unpredictable Firefight mode introduced in Halo 3: ODST returned in Halo: Reach with even more new and exciting gametypes. One such variant was Generator Defense, which features Spartans tasked with the protection of various electric generators threatened by the Covenant's unexpected attack. Our Generator Defense set brings this critical military asset to your figure collection. Keep it safe! Generator features a lockdown shield that can be raised and lowered and a radar dish that spins and pivots. Set also includes a male Spartan JFO custom in sage and steel armor, equipped with a Shotgun to repel any Elites that get too close.

My thoughs on this: I can't wait to see pictures of these guys, especially Jun and Kat. Sounds like we might get some Red Vs Blue stuff

My Note on this: I have bought previous molds but I would buy this for display and not really for playability.

Mega Bloks Halo The Authentic Collector's Series Limited Edition Cyan Spartan Review

Halo and Mega Bloks finally combined to make an awesome build able action figure toy line called, Mega Bloks Halo. Creating some of the most popular vehicles, characters, and weapons from big to small. The first wave of Mega Bloks Halo started a very interesting toy line bringing the imagination in adults and continuing in kids. Who will win is at the palm of your hand, you choose UNSC or Covenant. Halo's greatest toy line has begun.

Showing off for Collectors Common and Rare toys to buy including the Steel Spartan, Clear Flame Marine, and the Cyan Spartan; other then its exclusive colour, why is it that people enjoy these Halo Figures so much and want to get their hands on any toy involved with Mega Bloks Halo? Lets find out.

Packaging Front
The Packaging is almost as thin as one card pulled out of a deck of cards. A larger, cardboard box almost like the Mystery Packs. The artwork of the background behind The Exclusive Cyan Spartan with a very nice pose including the 2 Magnum Pistols. A very nice high quality CGI picture for this toy. The top left corner says the logo "Halo: The Authentic Collector's Series" instead of "Halo Wars" seen in previous toys, the advanced new title is for this new wave and continuing. The bottom left corner describe it is a "Limited Edition Spartan" as it is rare in the line. farther down at the bottom shows that their are only 4 parts estimated included with the set.

Packaging Back
The back promotes the Rocket Warthog, Wraith, Arctic Wolverine, Gremlin, The Gausshog VS The Covenant Locust, The Mongoose, and the Brute Chopper

Opening The Packaging: Opening the box or packaging is as easy as taking the tape off, lifting the tab, and pulling your new figure out.

The set includes 1 Camouflage brick in green, brown, and white with the number imprinted on the side, a 2X4 brick used to display your figure. 2 pistols small enough for the figure to hold are also included with the set, a very nice new weapon included with the Cyan Spartan.

The Cyan Spartan finally, when you open it up you are finally excited to receive your very exclusive Cyan Spartan, mainly of course if its your first. The Cyan Spartan is more blue than the picture describes, 12 points of articulation embedded in this very small toy. I personally have about two Cyan Spartans myself, I know only one person with about 3 Spartans in this exclusive colour of Cyan. Sculpted detail are not the only incredible thing but its noticeable paint details mainly on the chest itself, better to notice then in the Dark Green Spartans.

For kids this is fun to play with as they defeat the enemy, The Covenant, to victory. To Collectors, the toy is really something to brag about to you friends and for them to want to buy one themselves on eBay. With the pistols and block to display this figure will shine to your collection so much you will not stop getting these guys.

Fun, Collectible, and well detailed, Mega Bloks has really made a new style to their Series of toys, this could change toys as we know it, get it and you will have the ultimate fighters in your hands, This is Brian Johnson recommending this toy to anyone who wants it, the price might be high but it's worth it, a solid 10/10 with no regrets, Peace out!
