The epic saga continues with Halo 2, the much anticipated sequel to the highly successful and critically acclaimed game Halo: Combat Evolved. In this sequel, the battle comes to Earth, and Master Chief, a genetically enhanced super soldier, is the only thing standing between the relentless alien Covenant and the destruction of all humankind. Each Halo 2 action figure is accurately detailed, features numerous points of articulation and includes several weapons.
This case of 6 individually packaged 7-inch tall action figures. Assortment stated to include 2x Spartan (tan), 1x Human Flood, 2x Elite and 1x Hunter 2-pack. Assortment subject to change without notice.
Spartans, technically are part of the Spartan-II project. They are genetically, biologically, and technically enhanced fighting units, standing seven feet tall and weighing half a ton in their armor. Their reflexes are unmatched, with strength and endurance quite unlike any other human and their tenacity is molded by a lifetime of conscripted military training. Spartans are proficient in all current ballistic weapons and tactics, incursion, and modes of unarmed combat, and have extensive experience with Covenant military tech.
The iron heart of the Convenant military, the Elites have fought with honor and valor to secure the Covenant's position as the most feared fighting force in the Galaxy. It is a time of change for the Elites, their military and hierarchical dominance is being challenged by their ambitious allies, the Brutes. At eight feet tall, Elites tower over human opponents and lesser Covenant species...and hold them all in equal contempt. Elites live for battle and conquest, and though they are lethal with a wide range of Covenant arms, they delight in the intimate savagery of hand-to-hand combat. Of all the warrior classes, they alone are equipped with full-body energy shielding, which absorbs damage from small arm fire and explosives. Between the Elite's shields, their formidable metallic armor, and the angular lines of their helmets, but closer inspection of their fanged mandibles and leathery skin reveals the beast within.
The process of Flood infection is mysterious at best. No surviving samples have ever been delivered to Earth for analysis. What little knowledge we have gleaned from battlefield investigations hints at a parasitic life form that prefers a host with large calcium stores, but requires a sentient host to reach its full maturation. If a human is infected, swelling, limb dislocation and rapid putrefaction affect the victim. The Flood will reshape effectively dead host, and can reuse the cadaver in a matter of seconds. Human victims appear to make useful combat forms, and retain many of their pre-infection motor skills - including the ability to use weapons. They are considered deadly and should be destroyed on sight.
Hunters are not in fact a single entity, but rather a gestalt "hive" of little-understood wormlike creatures. Assemblin as a cooperative mass, they inhabit the Hunter armor in a powerful bipedal form, with its massive shield and integrated plasma cannon. Their distributed organic structure makes them extraordinaryily difficult to kill, and their amassed strength makes them one of the most formidable creatures ever encountered in the Human/Covenant war. They are intelligent, fearless and above all, deadly. Their protective armor is articulated to allow for the complex organism to move, and these articulations provide the only real weak point in their defenses.
