I just ordered a green Halo 2 version 4 or whatever MC off the 'net. It was frustrating because it took me over an hour to find a cheap, green MC that wasn't loose.





Is MC really so popular that he must be bought for stupidly high prices and be sold out pretty much everywhere? D:





If I actually had a job and a bit of cash when the first MCs were released, I would've gotten one then...




So...um. Has anyone other than me paid any stupidly high prices for a Halo toy?

A loose figure's a figure that's been taken out of the box.

Uh, yeah. That kind of stuff usually happens when it is a popular figure that has been out of production for over a year. :p

I've payed way stupider prices for some of my figures. As a matter of fact, some of my figures cost me more than a lot of people's entire collections... :cautious:

Whut. I did not know that. :<

I do not pay attention to things in stores, other than video game demos, beef jerky, and prices of things I will never buy.

Yeah, JoyRide has been completely out of business for awhile now, and they quite making Halo figures even before that. Tons of figures ended up getting cut from production before they even hit stores.

I thought I was being smart buying everything the second it hit the store. Too bad it all got destroyed and I got stuck rebuying the whole set again from online resellers at inflated prices.

Ew. Inflation. That reminds me of Gaiaonline's AI inflation. Stupid Exchange Whores.


I'm glad I bought my MC now. If I waited another year, I probably wouldn't be able to afford it!

Actually, you got a deal if that was any green MC.

Most of the Halo figures are worth more than when they came out. The only exceptions are any Jackal, Prophet, Flood, any Halo 2 vehicle aside from Warthogs, and Halo 2 Series 3. You're lucky if you can give some of those away. I see a lot of those get listed for $5 and $6 and go with no bids.

I got the H2 tin with the Mk V and Mk V Chiefs when it came out. $40 at my local gamestop. I thought that was kind of pricey but they go for way more now.

It isn't worth a lot opened, but I wouldn't be shocked at all if you could sell it opened for the $26 you payed + shipping.

And the McFarlane figures are going to kick the **** of the JR ones. JR figures absolutely blow as far as quality goes. ;)

Maybe so...I do have some series 2 and 3 MCs that are in pieces from falling off of a shelf 5 feet from the ground...lol.

I guess I was turned away from Mcdonald's ones when I saw they were on stands and could only hold the weapon they came with because they were glued in.
