The Halo line of action figures began in 2003, made by Joyride Studios, who produced the Halo: Combat Evolved and most Halo 2 lines. In March 2008, the Todd McFarlane company began producing the Halo 3 action figure sets. Eventually, they began making the Halo Wars, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo: Reach series figures, with the occasional Halo 2 figure. It was revealed at Comic Con 2010 that Square Enix would be producing figures from Halo: Reach.

Joyride included a serial number on each figure designating when it was created. This date code has four numbers followed by 'SS' stamped or embossed in the cardboard packaging. The first three digits represent the date the product was made, and the fourth digit is the year. For example: 2653SS means the product was manufactured on the 265th day of 2003 (9/23/2003).

The Halo 3, Halo Wars, Halo 2, and Halo 3: ODST action figures are produced exclusively by McFarlane Toys. They also produced figures from Halo: Reach, with the first series released in September 2010, and Halo 4 in 2012. Halo: Reach figures are on a slightly different scale than the previous Halo 3 figures. Spartan figures are slightly taller, even though they are Spartan III's, which are supposed to be smaller than Halo 3's Spartan II's. Covenant figures, such as the Grunts and Elites, are also larger. Regular human figures, such as the Army troopers, are about the same size as the Spartan figures of Halo 3, larger than the Halo 3 humans. Halo 4 figures are of the same scale as the Reach figures.
These figures include new features such as Halo Points, which allowed owners to trade the points for other Halo items. However, the program ended on December 1, 2009, and is now unavailable.
They also have considerable differences from the toys produced by Joyride studios; they are considerably smaller, molded in a "6-inch" scale, and have more detailed sculpts, which is McFarlane's hallmark.
Another feature these figures have is that the multiplayer figurines have removable head, shoulder, and chest armor, which allows them to interchange armor and create customizable figures.

Square Enix is producing figures of Noble Team from Halo: Reach, in much larger scale, than McFarlane's, with the first set in stores in fall of 2010, and the second set in 2011. Their figures are notable for being highly detailed, while still being articulated.
Jada produces a series of die cast vehicles and figurines for Halo 4.
