A 2nd Female Halo Spartan Figure
October 10, 2007 21 Comments
Last week there was an eBay listing for a “Halo 3 Mz Master Chief Spartan Statue” that fetched a winning bid of US $2,222.00. Apparently the buyer fell through though because that amazing figure has been relisted. The second auction for this curvy scantily armored sniper has already begun and runs until Oct-13-07 at 18:35:56 PDT. The current bid is $250.00 and assuming history repeats itself, you can expect that figure to continue climbing.
The seller, spectrstudios, recently listed a second figure following the same theme. The Halo 3 Female Spartan Master Chief Figure Statue has a much different feel from the last one though. The first female figure listed was extremely feminine while maintaining a certain bad ass mysterious quality. Despite being female, this new figure is quite masculine. I am sure it will appeal to some people, however I am not one of them.
I don’t like the fact that her helmet is off and we see her face. Master Chief never takes his helmet off; she shouldn’t either. Her hair resembles Cortana slightly, which bothers me as well. Between those two things and also the fact that she has black paint under her eyes (like the kind football players use) , I am not a potential buyer for this figure.
For those of you who are, here are the features (from the eBay page) :
Artist David Johnson
Figure is 8 inch scale, Created in polymer clay. ONE OF A KIND!! This is the only one, no molds were used in creation none taken from her. She has a strong armature underneath.
Serious Bidders only.
Bid with confidence, I lifetime insure my artwork, regardless of how she was broken I will fix her for life.
While this figure may not appeal to me, I can appreciate the hard work that went into it. It looks like a high quality custom figure and it would definitely make a good collectible. The current bid is US $199.99 and the auction ends Oct-12-07 at 14:38:59 PDT.
UPDATE : This item sold for US $199.99.
