im ready for animated, until then (other then premium BB) i have nothing to buy tf wise, so ill be buying some halo 3 figures. i always wanted to get some halo figures, but a) they were hard to find, and b) i always had transformers to buy, and they are my number one priority when buying toys. but the MacFarlane figures are going to be cheaper, and available at stores like walmart and other larger retailers, unlike the old joyride studio ones which would only be found in video game stores and the internet.
Better wait on buying those Animated figures, they'll be out in 2 months. No updates since the last one, the only updates for me are: my Xbox, Halo 1, Halo 2, Splinter Cell, and a Halo 3 Spartan figure, but, those don't count.
