Halo Minimates Series 5 is amassing an army at your local toy store.
What is it about Halo Minimates that make them so addictive? Is it their portability? Poseability? Interchangability? They have a lot going on for a 2-inch mini-figure, and the new assortment (in stores now) has even more going on than ever before. In fact, each two-pack and four-pack in Halo Minimates Series 5 comes loaded with troop-builders and extra parts that make forming your own army a snap!
The UNSC Marine and UNSC Sergeant come with two Assault Rifles, plus an extra helmet to turn your Sergeant into another Marine. The Red Spartan vs. Blue Spartan two-pack comes with two Assault Rifles and four extra helmets - two Rogue and two ODST - so you can add some variety to your squad. The Elite two-pack includes an Elite Assault with Spiker and an Elite Combat with Needler, both in a lovely shade of violent- er, violet. The Prophet of Regret comes with a Brute Chieftain, and while the Chieftain gets a Gravity Hammer, the Prophet gets extra waist pieces for his pals Truth and Mercy (who came out in Series 4).
These two-packs are only available at Toys "R" Us and toysrus.com, but be on the lookout for the Series 5 box set, featuring pink and yellow Spartans, a black Hayabusa, and a partially invisible Master Chief! It's only at comic shops and specialty toy stores, so turn on your radar and track it down! (Or just visit comicshoplocator.com to find your nearest location.)
Did we mention that each figure has 14 points of articulation? Check out these pictures of all of the figures in action!
