I wouldn’t quite say that I was on pins and needles for this McFarlane announcement, as the McF PR people would suggest. Even though Halo is probably the best McFarlane line ever, I stopped playing the video game franchise at Halo 2. But because it’s so good, I’m still cherry-picking the toys.
I just picked up the Toys R Us exclusive Mongoose set, but it’s been relegated to the new pile of unopened toys that I hope to one day photograph. My wife won’t allow me to call it “New Staging Area One” so I’ll take suggestions on what to christen it, even though I know I’ll have to dismantle it really soon.
