Halo 3 Kotobukiya figure

Yesterday I reported that Marvel Studios and Kotobukiya just signed an exclusive rights deal that would allow Kotobukiya to produce statues bearing the likeness of various Marvel Studios movie franchises. Microsoft has known for a while now that having such a deal makes your properties look phenomenal, as they've got the third Hal figurine due out this year from Kotobukiya. Below is the press release, which describes the Master Chief standing in the field of battle, "locked u deadly combat with the Covenant." In his present state, he holds to M7 SMGs, but you can interchange his arms (!) so that he can hold an assault rifle (which is stored on his back when not in use). The statue is a shade under a foot tall, and is due out later this year for $99.99 (most likely). HALO 3: MASTER CHIEF - FIELD OF BATTLE - ARTFX STATUE

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! From the worldwide smash hit X-box 360 game HALO 3 comes the second release in the high-end ARTFX Statue series. Locked in deadly combat with the Covenant, the indomitable Spartan super-soldier MASTER CHIEF stands in the field of battle.

With a discharged grenade at his feet and the bubble shield dissipating, Master Chief readies his armaments and begins to rise. Master Chief holds two M7 SMGs (Caseless Submachine Guns), or you can switch the bonus arms and have him grip his Assault Rifle. When not using the Rifle, it can be stored on his back. Additional hands are also included for expression, and as a special bonus for fans that collected the first Kotobukiya ARTFX Statue, you can swap weapons and hands with the first release!

This 10 34" tall pvc statue is fully assembled and ready to display out of the box. Highly customizable, and highly detailed...and highly desired by all Halo fans! srp $99.99
