First Look at 'Halo' Odd Pods; Coming to Stores in July
Friday, March 27, 2009

Odd Pods* are the new stylized variation of our highly successful Halo figures, with special appeal for the vast "urban" figure collector market. Odd Pods have interchangeable heads, torsos and arms for countless customization possibilities. The first series includes four fan-favorite Halo characters with weapons.

Look for the first series of Odd Pods to reach stores in July.
