McFarlane Toys Halo 4 Didact Deluxe Figure Coming This Fall

The Halo 4 toy fans have asked for it, and now McFarlane Toys has responded. They present you with the McFarlane Toys Halo 4 Didact Deluxe Figure! This figure is going to fit right on in scale with the rest of your 6-inch figures that you already have in your collection. If you are even the smallest Halo fan then you should still be able to recognize the Didact…

McFarlane Toys Halo 4 Didact Deluxe Figure

100,000 years ago, the Didact served as a military commander of the Forerunners, a powerful race of aliens who were at war with ancient humans. But humans weren’t the only threat to the Forerunners. Besieged by an unstoppable, parasitic enemy known as the Flood, the Forerunners desperately tried many radical plans to save themselves, and the rest of the universe, from extinction.

Since the Flood only devoured sentient organic life, the Didact’s plan was to defeat them by creating an army of advanced robotic soldiers – the Prometheans. But before he could use his synthetic creations to destroy the Flood, the Didact was sealed inside a Cryptum, locked in suspended animation, and exiled to the artificial world of Requiem.

100,000 years later, in Halo 4, the Master Chief and Cortana discover Requiem, and are tricked into releasing the Didact from his prison! With the Flood threat ended by the Master Chief in Halo 3, the newly awakened Didact now turns his army of Prometheans upon his ancient enemy – humanity!

This figure features just about every game accurate detail that you could think of, I guess that’s why he deserves the ‘Deluxe’ title. He has metallic armor with wicked spikes all over his armor and glowing lines tracing along each piece. He stands a towering 9 inches tall and boasts 29 points of articulation, and even features a code that unlocks some sort of in game Halo 4 content. No word on what exactly what you unlock.

Look for the McFarlane Toys Halo 4 Didact Deluxe Figure to start ripping up the store shelves this September! Get your pre-orders in now at Big Bad Toy Store!
