Joyride Studios/Halo 2 Series 8
Heretic Elite Leader
The Heretic Elite Leader action figure was based off of Sesa 'Refumee. The box summary provided Halo fans with additional insight into the Elite character that was not yet known, such as his name.
The Heretic Grunt action figure was the first figure off of the Heretic Grunts. Unlike the other Grunt figures, the Methane Tank has two tubes, and a mouthpiece that allows you to see the Grunt's teeth. This figure did not see past prototyping.
It is armed with a Plasma Pistol.
On each action figure unit, Joyride has included a serial number, which allows you to find out when the action figure was created. The date code has four numbers followed by 'SS' actually stamped or embossed in the cardboard. The first three digits are 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).
