HALO REACH gave gamers a brand new chapter in the Halo mythology, allowing them to explore the days before Master Chief and see the world of the game as it once was. The story and the characters spoke to the heart of the player as well as entertaining them, intricate and inspiring on many levels.
It’s therefore no surprise that the above figures are a cut above the rest, getting more than just the usual treatment and joining the Play Arts collection under the Kai series banner. The Kai series, if you are unfamiliar, is “an improved version of [the] popular Play Arts action figures, with a greater attention to detail, more points of articulation, and additional parts for greater customization.”
Shipping in January, you’ll find Noble Six, Jun-A266 and Emile as the first wave of Kai figures and they’re available for pre-order now, as individual items or in a pack of all three. They join the complete Halo Reach Collection over at CmdStore.com!
Starting today at 4pm, FAN EXPO opens its doors to legions of fanboys, fangirls, professionals, creators and celebrities from the world of comics, sci-fi, film, television and more!

From the world of comics, it welcomes Gail Simone (Wonder Woman, Deadpool), Cameron Stewart (Catwoman, Batman and Robin), Adi Granov (Spider-Man, Iron Man), Ty Templeton (She-Hulk) and many more. But as most conventions do nowadays, they’re also welcoming a ton of guests from movies and television. Notable named include Doug Jones (Hellboy I & II, Pan’s Labyrinth, Fantastic Four), Gena Lee Nolin (Baywatch, Sheena), Kandyse McClure (BSG), Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters), Gil Gerard (Buck Rogers) and dozens of other personalities from everything from the WWE to the Amazing Race to America’s Next Top Model.
There are also going to be gaming pavilions (Warhammer fans, take note!), special signings from the stars and some very cool panels. To name a few: Q&A with World War Z author Max Brooks, I Saw You On TV (featuring reality TV stars), a screening of The Wild Hunt, a KICK ASS panel (That’s the movie, not an adjective) and a Battlestar Galactica Q&A.
Naturally, we at CmdStore.com will be there with a ton of figures, statues, playsets and other items on sale so if you’re headed down there, be sure to check us out!
