Man FUCK HALO!

Posted by NTM

Jeeze. I like Halo in all. But this is way too much for me to even care about.

I know right? I thought the same thing.

I actually think the statue looks quite broing painted in totaly flat colours, far too plastic
Posted by JasonDaPsycho

The legendary edition costs 150 bucks and seem a lot more promising than the prestige edition of MW2.

I want that dairy.

I really love the design.  The colour, not so much.
Still, my launch 360 is still chugging along, but I may just pick one of these up at Christmas.
 
The pre-order/bonus codes are likely to go for a fair bit on eBay.

Insert "milking the franchise" joke here ...

Ultimate sacrifice, brother!

Am i the only one who thinks the special edition console doesn't look so great. I prefer the normal black 360 "slim" over this any day. Should of made it a reflective texture like the new style guide button..

Can I just have the patch? No game, please.

Posted by MeatSim

Yea I will just take the regular-ass game I don't want any of this stuff.

How about you take your own advice? There's no need to act like an asshole. Like you said, it's a video game.
Posted by TragicallyErock

is it weird that I want the McFarlane statues, but not the game itself?

Posted by Agent47CSim2

Again, why put this up but not the Vidoc?

I feel there's no need to act like what happens in a video game should be honored as if they are war heroes. Considering that you can restart at checkpoints at any time after, excuse me, dying, they don't need to do this crap.
 
I'm all for taking yourself seriously within the actual game, but when it comes to trying to act like it's some great act of heroics in person it just comes off as ridiculous to me.
 
edit: I'm also not against anyone who wants that fancy fancy edition, I just highly doubt anyone would say they bought it to "commemorate the halo manz I used."

The maquette isn't made for the purpose of people to "honor" Noble 6 outside the game. It's made in the same mind set like all the "Believe" shorts that were for Halo 3, commemorating Master Chief's "death". It's like a replica of what a supposed memorial to Noble 6 would've looked like during the fall of Reach.

Firstly, how is that any different from my point? Just say, hey you get this cool maquette with the game, rather than making it superficial.
 
Secondly, she says directly quoting, "This is a memorial to commemorate the ultimate sacrifice that noble team had to make." I went off what was presented in the video.
 
It's been discussed elsewhere before, but I think there are better things developers can put in their limited edition than these figures such as making-of videos. I would be much more interested in seeing how they made the game rather than a more marketing oriented collection, though you can't blame them at all for going that way.

That's interesting  - pause and read the small print on the standard version of the game: 
 
Includes: In game Spartan Armour 
(via preorder in non-US territories). 
 
 Bummer for you American Halo fans.

You get the armour in the US for buying the game on the first day.
 
I think this is just a culture thing.  In Europe/Australia, people tend to pre-order games online and have them sent for release day.  Hence why we get the codes for pre-ordering..  In the US, it's a lot more common to just wait inline and buy the game in a store.

All I want is the game... and the UNSC patch. 

Posted by driffter

Aaahhh man if only I had the resources !!!!!!!!!

Posted by Newjack

Yeah, the whole "commemorating their sacrifice" bit was a little much.

Posted by RsistncE

"These will be much more limited in number at retail than the Halo 3 legendary edition."
 
Lol, right.

Posted by NutForest

The figure is great and all i just dont really see it as part of my collection due to both the price and the goddamn size. Altso the whole sacrifice thing threw me off.

Posted by JonGamer

This looks awesome, but I think I'll just buy the regular copy of Reach.

"Capturing the personality of each member of Noble Team". 
Really? When they all have masks on?

Posted by first2die
@Branthog:
I Agree, this "Limited" edition stuff is crap. 
 
If you want to know more about the spartans, don't read hasley's notes. Read the novels. 
If your into action figures i suppose those things would be cool, but at the end of the day are you buying the game or buying the other junk. 
 
Seriously "the ultimate sacrifice noble team had to make".... um its a game lady. 
 
If i buy this i will be buying the Regular Edition.

Is this really a second serious reply to my not serious comment. I did not type "GAWD" for no reason.

Seriously tempted to buy another console, even though my Elite is perfectly functional. Oof...

Posted by Madyew

I just can't justify an extra $70 for the Legendary when the only thing extra you're getting is a statue and some in game helmet. 

Posted by MachoFantastico

The console looks sweet, nice to see it's nit covered totally in art. Some custom consoles can be to much.
