Halo 3 Goes Offline With Upcoming Toys

halo3toy1.jpg halo3toy2.jpg

Bungie recently unveiled some prototypes for toys based on Halo 3 that will be coming out soon at the San Diego Comic-Con. Chief among them are a Covenant plasma rifle, which looks almost exactly like the in-game version; and a plasma pistol which, well, doesn’t. They’ll be part of a game called Laser Pursuit, which is kind of like laser tag, except your power can recharge after youäve been hit, just like in the video game. However they will both use sound effects straight from the game, overheat when used too much, and the pistol will be able to charge up a power shot. Unfortunately there won’t be any plans to produce weapons from the UNSC side, as they would have to be made in bright colors, which wouldn’t look anywhere near realistic. These weapons should be hitting Hot Topic store in October 2007, while an Energy Sword will also make its way to shelves in 2008.

A UNSC replica weapon would NOT have to be painted in bright colors. Airsoft guns, wich are sold in sports stores to some extent, and online by the thousands, mimick real weapons with extreme accuracy. All federal law requires is that they have an orange tip around an inch long.

This is going to b the collest thing since sliced bread…. It’s alittle pricey though i hopw they go down soon so i can buy one without totaly killing my 360/halo 3 cash….

they are making the UNSC weapons in bright colors, i read this off the BUNGIE.NET website. so quit lying so u can try to make yourself look smart

:cry: they really need to lower the prices, and maybe make a halo3 map-like place where u go in, select which team u would be on, put on the master cheif lazer suit, than choose which weapon you get. also, i see it as not practical to have a energy sword as how are u going to do damage with it, make the inferad (mispelled) beam that it shoots really faint so it only hurt the people next to you?

also, this halo 3 arena would be at some bungie convention, possible it might be open all the time so that people wouldnt have to wait for other big conventions
