Mention Halo to an Xbox geek and they usually start babbling on about the Covenant, the Arbiter and a slew of fantastic characters from this awesome franchise's staggeringly immersive universe. But above and beyond its supporting cast, Halo is all about the Master Chief. And so are these seriously collectable Japanese art toys!
Flushing out the Covenant
Halo 3 Kubricks are 2.5" figures of everyone's favourite biologically-enhanced, cybernetically-augmented commando. And with Halo 3 upon us there's never been a better time to hit the Buy button.
Each highly sought-after 4-pack contains a traditional Green, online Red, online Blue and Active Camo version of the hard-as-nails Spartan II Super Soldier. Sporting Mjolnir battle armour (try saying that after a few...actually, try saying that at all) and an assault rifle or SMG, these coveted figures are set to sky-rocket in value. It's enough to make you drop your joystick in gibbering anticipation.
Hail the Chief!

But what exactly are Kubricks? Well, these blocky figurines are named in honour of Stanley Kubrick and they're just as enigmatic and mysterious as the late director himself. Hugely collectable, each series is produced in limited numbers and never re-released.
Ready for action...
All of which means you'd better get your skates on because Halo is one of the most popular, not to mention amazing, video game franchises in history. We reckon these über-cool figures are going to sell out faster than you can say 'Yikes, New Mombasa's teeming with Covenant ships...pass the plasma rifle!' So get ordering - and all hail the Chief!
