McFarlane Toys/Halo 4 Series 1
McFarlane Toys Halo 4 Series 1 action figures were released in August 2012. Carded figure came in two different types of packaging. The individual figures are packed with the traditionally shaped cards, but GameStop carries figures in much slimmer cards to save space.
The Elite Zealot figure comes with an Energy Sword. Like previous McFarlane Elite figures, its helmet is removable. Its redesigned hand makes it impossible for the figure to hold the Energy Sword firmly and there's no back storage. The Elite's bodysuit also seems to include gloves.
This Spartan IV has red GEN2 Warrior armor and comes with a Sniper Rifle.
The Halo 4 Cortana figure now has articulation, unlike the Halo 3 variants. It comes with a stand, and interchangeable hands, including one that is touching a holographic screen. It was released as a later wave of Series 1. The figure comes with a bonus Master Chief Micro Ops figure.
The Promethean Crawler figure was released as a later wave of Series 1.
The Promethean Watcher figure has a stand to give it the appearance of it floating. It was released as a later wave of Series 1. The Watchers stand consists of a clear, round piece of plastic that attaches to the ring on its back. When disassembled, the Watcher figure can fit inside the Promethean Knight figure.
This Spartan has blue Soldier armor and a Battle Rifle. It was released as a later wave of Series 1.
