McFarlane's Halo 3 Series 4 include several new figures and armor permutations for Spartans. It is also known as the "Equipment Series," as they include equipment, such as Bubble Shields and Trip Mines.

Series 4 packaging is in a new larger blister card. All cards are the same and there is no individual description for each figure. Halo Points are located on a small cardboard piece on the bottom of the plastic bubble.

Master Chief[edit | edit source]

Master Chief.

The Series 4 Master Chief action figure is modeled after John-117, the main character in the Halo trilogy. It comes with a Rocket launcher and a Bubble Shield. This figure, like all other Master Chief figures, has weapon storage on Master Chief's back, waist, and leg. It is articulated at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, hips, knees, ankles and feet. The figure is about five inches tall. The figure is worth 10 Halo Points.

It was noted that the Bubble Shield was uneven, making it difficult to stand on its own. Both the Rocket launcher and bubble shield are prone to breaking within a few days of purchasing.[1]


Arbiter[edit | edit source]

The Arbiter.

This new Arbiter action figure is modeled after The Arbiter in Halo 3. It is made of a clear plastic (to simulate active camouflage) and comes with an equally transparent Energy Sword and Bubble Shield. The figure stands 5 1/2 inches tall and is articulated at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, waist, hips, knees and ankles.

His hands have been remolded so his fingers are hinged so putting the Energy Sword in his hand is easier than the Series 2 version. This figure is worth 25 Halo Points.

Elite Combat[edit | edit source]

The Tan Elite action figure.

There was only one color released for the Combat Harness: tan, with yellow detail coloring. It comes armed with a Covenant Carbine and a Grav Lift. It stands 5 1/2 inches tall and is articulated at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, waist, hips, knees and ankles. Like all other McFarlane figures, it includes removable armor, so it can be interchanged with other figures. It is worth 10 Halo Points.

The fingers of the figure made it awkward for it to hold the Carbine, and further adjustments could lead to breakage of the figure. The feet were also not even, which made it difficult for it to stand alone.[2]


Spartan EOD[edit | edit source]

The Red EOD action figure.

It is worth 10 Halo Points.


Spartan Hayabusa[edit | edit source]

The Hayabusa armored Spartans come in two colors: blue and pink. Each figure stands 5 inches tall and is articulated at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, hips, knees, ankles and feet.

  • The blue Spartan is armed with dual Maulers and a Power Drain. It is a Wal-Mart exclusive and has yellow detail coloring.
  • The pink Spartan has a Battle rifle and a Radar Jammer. It is a D&R Lineups exclusive and has white detail coloring.

Both are worth 10 Halo Points.


Spartan Security[edit | edit source]

Security armor is a new type of armor in the McFarlane series. Unlike other Spartan figures, the Security Spartans have an antenna on their backs that cannot be removed. There are two colors: olive and steel. Each figure stands 5 inches tall and is articulated at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, hips, knees, ankles and feet.

  • The steel Spartan comes armed with a Plasma Pistol, an SMG, and a Trip Mine. It is a GameStop exclusive and has orange detail coloring.
  • The olive Spartan comes with dual Maulers and a Radar Jammer. It has red detail coloring. It was noted that the hands were molded to hold magnums, which made holding the Maulers difficult.[3]

Both are worth 10 Halo Points.
