ThreeA Drops a Halo: Reach Carter Teaser

Today ThreeA posted, and quickly removed, a teaser collage of Carter-A259 from Halo: Reach's Noble Team. The figure will be a big 1/6 scale and the level of detail for the figure is already amazing, even from these constrictive shots. It's difficult to tell the kind of joints and articulation the figure has from the photos, but I'll say that it won't have the obtrusive ball joints of the Play Arts Kai figure. In the ThreeA forums there is lots of speculation on the figure, like if it has a bodysuit to cover the joints. Given the usual quality of ThreeA, it'll certainly be incredible.

Carter's got to find someone to fill those big shoes.

Personally, I'm fine with the smaller McFarlane Toys versions of Noble Team, but if/when a ThreeA Master Chief drops? That might be something I'd be interested in. With McFarlane Toys, Square Enix's Play Arts Kai, and even the Mega Bloks, there are a ton of Halo toys out there now, but I think ThreeA will do just fine in the market since the final figures will most likely blow everything else away. According to a Halo Fest panel I'd expect the first ThreeA Halo figures later this year.
