Here’s some booth pics of the Halo, Playmakers, and Prince of Persia lines from McFarlane. I didn’t speak to anyone at the booth, but it was interesting to see Todd McFarlane working the booth. He’s participated in special events at Toy Fair before, but I can’t remember him actively manning the booth and talking to buyers and media.
I wish I had gotten better pictures of the upcoming vehicles. The Warthog looks very promising and with the Halo video game franchise plugging along, I can see this license continuing for the long haul.
These look like there’s some decent variety in body types and feature some good posability. I still dislike that McF chose to pack hitters and batters separately instead of charging a little more and giving interchangeable heads and hands.. As you can see, they’re planning to move into football next. Makes sense.
Prince of Persia
I think the smaller figures look to have decent sculpts and articulation, but I’m not sure there’s anything compelling outside of the license itself – so these could live or die based on the success of the movie.
