McFarlane Toys kicked off their celebration early, with an "advance wave" of Anniversary figures hitting the shelves of major retailers in late July! For this preview line, we're bringing back four figures from our very first Halo game license, Halo 3.

Series 1 Advanced Wave[edit | edit source]

Elite Combat[edit | edit source]

The classic Combat armor and the classic Covenant purple color scheme combine to create the definitive Elite action figure. Is this Sangheili warrior a frightening new enemy, as in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, or a powerful new ally of humanity, as in Halo 3?

Platinum John-117[edit | edit source]

The classic Halo 3 version of John-117 returns, in a commemorative "Platinum Hits" silver paint scheme! John-117 features his damaged Mark VI armor, an Assault Rifle, and two Frag Grenades.

Orbital Drop Shock Trooper[edit | edit source]

The ever-popular Orbital Drop Shock Trooper, first released back in Halo 3 Series 2, drops in with an updated paint scheme that now includes the white stripes on the shoulder armor. Figure is equipped with a Battle Rifle.

Spartan Recon[edit | edit source]

One of the most highly-sought after armor of Halo 3, the Recon, makes a return to store shelves, this time, in classic "team one" red. Figure includes Plasma Rifle, and a deactivated Energy Sword hilt accessory, previously only available with the SDCC-exclusive Grifball figure.
