TOY REVIEW: HALO Reach Grunt Ultra and Gold Spartan Figures

Halo Reach Grunt Ultra and Gold Spartan Action Figures Series 1 Packaged

TOY REVIEW: HALO Reach Figures Grunt Ultra and Gold Spartans The Right: Opening my Halo 3 figures, I felt like I was opening up precious porcelain china or something. I would undo the twist ties with the utmost care and respect, and lovingly remove figures from their bubbles–at which point they would often immediately shatter in my hands.

Dabid’s Blog – Photo Op! Jen glares as Luke Skywalker prepares to climb and assault our overhead fan…!

I Can’t Shake Him! Originally uploaded by Dabid_R2DB Jen makes a rare appearance in my blog tonight, as she glares at Snowspeeder Pilot Luke Skywalker, who is desperately clinging to our overhead fan with his grappling hook! I picked up Snowspeeder Luke in November 2009, and he’s been hanging from the overhead fan/lights in our office ever since. The main peril of having him there is, of course, that we …
