Campaign[edit]

The Rookie[edit]

The The Rookie Action Figure is based on the main protagonist, The Rookie, from Halo 3: ODST. It is six inches tall and features removable shoulder armor. It is the second ODST figure made by McFarlane. This figure includes an M7S Caseless Submachine Gun and a Halo 3: ODST medal. The M7S uses the older design with the stock collapsed. The figure features 24 points of articulation.

The Rookie's armor color is Pantone 418C. This led to the original prototype appearing too green, and required that the paint application be adjusted. Additionally, the sculpt is confirmed to have a defect. Upon removal from the box, The Rookie's hands may fall off, due to the different joint used on the hand. This was later corrected. The new version has a white stripe on the helmet and a white chestplate, along with a darker visor, hands that don't fall off, and slightly higher durability. The armor is still somewhat green though, and the camouflage patterns are still greenish.

It is worth 20 Halo Points.

Rtas 'Vadum[edit]

The Rtas Vadum Action Figure is a model of the Elite Shipmaster from Halo 2 and 3. It is 6 inches tall and includes an Energy Sword, a Plasma Grenade, and a Sword Spree Medal.

Originally, Joyride Studios considered making a figure of Rtas 'Vadum, but thought it was pointless to make an Elite with a different paint job. He is called Rtas' Vadumee on the package, despite the fact that he removed this suffix from his name after seceding from the Covenant. The Energy Sword appears to have a more purple color, as to the bluish color in the games.

Brute Bodyguard[edit]

The Brute Bodyguard Action Figure is based off the Brute Bodyguards from Halo 3: ODST.

It is six inches tall and comes with a Brute Shot and Spike Grenade, and features 28 points of articulation. The figure's Spike Grenade was noted for having a thin handle, making it potentially fragile.

Grunt[edit]

The Grunt (Red) Action Figure came in the form of the Major Grunts in Halo 3. It is six inches tall, and comes armed with a Plasma Pistol, Plasma Rifle, Plasma Grenade, and a Double Kill Medal. It also features 22 points of articulation. The breathing apparatus can be removed from the face of the Grunt, displaying sharp teeth.

It is worth 15 Halo Points.

Flood Stalker Form[edit]

The Pure Form Stalker Action Figure is based off the Pure Forms from Halo 3. It is six inches tall and has 24 points of articulation. The arm joints of the figure are weak, causing it to break easily. It includes an Incineration Medal, likely because this form is highly vulnerable to fire.

It is worth 30 Halo Points.

Matchmaking[edit]

Elite Assault[edit]

The Elite Assault only comes in one color; gold, with brown detail coloring. It is six inches tall, and like all other McFarlane figures, has removable helmet, chest, and shoulder armor that can be used to customize figures. It includes two Spike Rifles and a Killing Spree Medal.

It is worth 10 Halo Points.

Spartan Hayabusa[edit]

The Spartan Hayabusa action figure comes in a sage color with white detail coloring. It is six inches tall and comes with a Fuel Rod Gun and a Triple Kill Medal, and features 26 points of articulation. It is an exclusive to Amazon and international retailers.

It is worth 10 Halo Points.

Spartan Recon[edit]

The Spartan Recon action figures come in two colors. There are two variants: a white variant and a steel variant. The have 26 points of articulation. Both are six inches tall and are worth 10 Halo Points each.

The white Recon figure has multiple errors in its design, including shoddy painting and fragile limbs. The magnums, unlike most weapons, do not have weapon peg holes, but rather small nubs on the left side that can be directly inserted into a weapon slot. However, both Magnums have it on the same side, so if both are holstered, then one will be backwards. Additionally, the magnums are not scaled to fit in the hands of the figure.
