New Characters Revealed via Halo 4 Action Figures

BigBadToyStore.com has shown us the first images of Series 2 of McFarlane's figures. The Series includes

Master Chief

Commander Thomas Lasky


Storm Jackal

Elite Ranger

Spartan Scout (Team Orange)

Spartan C.I.O. (Team Purple)


There's quite a lot to soak up here, interesting that the Jackal is referred to as a "Storm Jackal", the Grunts carried the "Storm" prefix too. My guess would be that Storm are a socio-political faction made up of Covenant races who still believe in the word of the Prophets. I'm sure Karen Traviss' next book The Thursday War will explain all this.

Thomas Lasky is the lead character in Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. Thanks to this figure we now know that he is the Commanding Officer we see in some of the official Spartan Ops shots and videos.

  1. I doubt there are any Elites that still believe in the Prophets, but there may be different sects of Elites, complemented by Jackals and Grunts.

    Or maybe "storm" is a class of some sort?

    1. There are Elites that believe in the word of the Prophets (that the Forerunners are gods, Great Journey etc.)

      We meet them in Halo: Glasslands.

    2. The Elites believed that the Forerunners were Gods before the Arrival of the Prophets, and none of the Elites in Glasslands were interested in following the Prophets again.

    3. But there were elites that still believed in the cause. Remember that they were against the Arbiter.

    4. They wanted to destroy Humanity because of the threat Humanity posed to the Sangheili, not because of some religious crusade. After the downfall of the Covenant, most Sangheili weren't sure about their "Gods" anymore.

    1. Nope. Storm rifle. Too bad though, I really loved the beam rifle (so much better than the focus rifle...). I suppose there's still a chance it will be in the game, but that there is the storm rifle.

    2. Actually, the description of the ranger model labels it as the Beam Rifle. :)

    3. I hated focus rifle so much! It was crap. I am much more exited about the plasma pistol. For those who doesn't know 343I will make it more powerful. And also the new thing in forge. :)
