More warthogs = MORE BETTER!!!

The first Warthog was amazing for the price. Heck, I can always shift a few over to my Joes if the HALO shelf gets too crowded!

Jazwares is killing it with this line so far aside from some distribution issues. (Really Walmart? Full cases of just the Master Chief?!!!)

Snagged the Armory set at WM here outside Houston. The weapons are all still rubbery and lame. Stop doing that, toy people. It's otherwise pretty damned sweet for the cheap-as-shit price.

So judging from the wave 3 packaging, it looks like there are meant to be 2 2-packs; one with Chief and Tovaras and another one with I think a Marine and a Blue Shield Jackal. Has anyone seen these in the wild? I've seen online stock and reviews for pretty much all other releases in wave 3 except for the 2-packs.

The soft, rubbery weapons (especially in the 1:12 line) continue to aggravate me. I really wish they’d mold them in ABS plastic like McFarlane did.

As much as I like the first release of the Warthog, I wish JazWares would have upped the game a bit by giving us either the Rocket Hog or Gauss Cannon Hog.

The rubbery weapons are flabbergasting in light of the solid Fortnite weapons. WhoTF is making a deliberately-dumbass decision to do *worse* than they've evidenced they can, and why hasn't he/she been 'promoted' over to the Board Games division?

Board games don't need rubbery weapons. :wink: And board games likely sell better than action figures, so yes...that would be a promotion.

The rubbery weapons and missing lower mandibles on the elites frustrate me too. Those are probably the only things holding this back from being a perfect line of figures IMO.

btw: The Amazon packs are on sale for 27.49 right now. Not much of a sale, but its something I guess!

Nice! Wave 2 took about 9 months from the first sightings to hit my area though, so I'm not getting too excited yet.

Same. Literally just saw some of wave three at one store, but pretty much every store around me is cleaned out of Halo.

Same situation here. Most stores here are either bare or still have wave 1 stuff. I also finally saw wave 3 in a local Walmart. GameStops are pretty consistently getting in new waves, but only seen to carry the 6.5" figures.

I just hope I'm able to find a Fred at some point. He's the only figure in this new wave that's a must-have for me.
