McFarlane Toys To Produce 'Halo: Reach' Action Figures
New 5-Inch Action Figures and In-Scale Vehicles Coming this Fall
Friday, January 29, 2010

This fall, McFarlane Toys will bring the world action figures from the most anticipated video game of 2010 -- Halo: Reach!

Halo: Reach is an all-new prequel to the massively popular Halo trilogy -- scheduled for release this fall exclusively on the Xbox 360 -- and McFarlane Toys will be there riding shotgun. We'll bring the heavy weapons into the fracas with all new five-inch action figures, in-scale vehicles and deluxe figure packs. And the action doesn't stop in 2010! McFarlane Toys will produce additional Halo: Reach figures and vehicles well into 2011.

"We are extremely excited about what Halo: Reach offers as the next evolution of the Halo franchise, both in terms of story and gameplay and how these elements can be translated into our specific field of expertise: action figures and collectibles." said McFarlane Toys CEO, Todd McFarlane. "This is a great opportunity for us to bring some of the exciting visual advances that have been developed for Halo: Reach to three-dimensional life in the action figure arena. More and more of our retailers are seeing the impact that video games -- and Halo in particular -- are having on popular culture and entertainment as a whole, and they're finally waking up to the fact that video games are as much of a viable toy product as the biggest movie franchises. It looks like 2010 will end on a tremendous up swing!"
