Halo Minimates Series 5 Is Amassing an Army at Your Local Toy Store
July 30, 2012

What is it about Halo Minimates that make them so addictive? Is it their collectability? Poseability? Interchangability? They certainly have a lot going on for a 2-inch mini-figure, and the new assortment from Diamond Select Toys has even more going on than ever before, with with enough extra parts to make army-building a snap! Read on to see all of the Spartans, Marines, Prophets and Elites in Halo Minimates Series 5!

– The UNSC Marine and UNSC Sergeant come with two assault rifles, plus an extra helmet to turn your Sergeant into another Marine! DOUBLE MARINES!
– The Red Spartan vs. Blue Spartan two-pack comes with two assault rifles and four extra helmets — two Rogue and two ODST — so you can add some diversity to your squad!
– The Elite two-pack includes an Elite Assault with Spiker and an Elite Combat with Needler, both in a lovely shade of violent– er, I mean violet. Build a purple power base!
– The Prophet of Regret comes with a Brute Chieftain, and while the Chieftain gets a gravity hammer, the Prophet gets fancy new belt pieces for his pals Truth and Mercy!

These two-packs are only available at Toys “R” Us and toysrus.com, but be on the lookout for the Series 5 box set, featuring pink and yellow Spartans, a black Hayabusa and a partially invisible Master Chief! That set is only at comic shops and specialty toy stores, so turn on your radar and track it down! (Or just visit comicshoplocator.com to find your nearest location!)

Did we mention that each figure has 14 points of articulation? Check out these pictures of all of the figures in action!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
