McFarlane Toys Halo 3 Series 3 has 24 different figures, the most in any series so far. Series 3's packaging is the same as Series 2, except with a different design. There are two types of card backs for Series 3: one with just an English description, and one with English, Spanish, and French descriptions. Both types are available in North America and other countries. Spartan figures now have a trigger finger, making it easier to fit weapons in their hands than in previous series. They are all worth 10 Halo Points.

Campaign[edit]

Master Chief[edit]

This is the 3rd edition of the Master Chief action figure. The series 3 Master Chief includes a Sniper Rifle and a Spike Grenade. It stands 5 inches tall and is articulated at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, hips, knees, ankles and feet.

War Chieftain[edit]

The Brute War Chieftain is based off the War Chieftains from Halo 3. It measures 6.25 inches at the top of the head (7.5 inches with the helmet on). It is articulated at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, hips, knees and ankles. This figure comes with a Fuel Rod Gun. The Chieftain features a removable helmet. It is also the tallest figure in the series.

Flood Combat[edit]

The Flood Combat Human is the first Flood figure from McFarlane. The figure includes an SMG and a stand. There is a Covenant symbol on the back of the package, even though this figure is more UNSC than Covenant, as it is an infected UNSC Marine. It measures 4.25 inches tall and is articulated at the elbows, wrists, waist, knees and ankles.

It will look rather odd when its joints are bent, because the figure has many odd bulges and bumps that won't be aligned right when the joints are bent.

The Jackal Major action figure was made available in September of 2008. It wields a Plasma Pistol. It can be noted that the Jackal Major has a red shield, when Jackal Majors in the games have violet shields.
