Commander Carter, from Halo: Reach, is soon to be immortalized in 12" format by ThreeA. Online retailers, like Big Bad Toy Store are estimating the item to begin shipping in March 2013.
Listed features include:
*Stands 13.5 inches tall
*Fiber-optic illuminated helmet and combat armor.
*Magnetized shoulder shields and rear pouch that all weapons can be attached to.
*Rubberized suit over a fully articulated body with complete outer armor attachments.
*Fully articulated fingers
-M392 DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle)
-M9 HE-DP APG Frag Grenade (x2)
-Combat Knife with sheath
From being in the correct size to fit in with 'normal human' 1/6th scale figures, to what seems like the ability to magnetically store weapons on the body like the characters do in the game, Commander Carter seems like a pretty premium format figure. While bearing a premium figure price point, Carter seems a reasonable deal when compared to other premium brand 1/6 scale figures from makers like Hot Toys. Whether Carter lives up to this price point remains to be seen.
