Heroclix are about a quarter of an inch tall. Think Dungeons & Dragons metal minature figurines, but made out of plastic.

Personally, I think Circuit City's 4 foot tall Master Chief wall graphic pre-order bonus is better.

They are about 2 inches tall, IIRC. My son has a Marvel and DC Heroclix collection. Unless these are smaller.

The best part about this deal is that these figures are exclusive to the pre-order only!

Even if you aren't thinking about playing Halo Actionclix, these figures will probably bring about $20-$30 on the secondary market (depending on how many each store gets). Which is a pretty good chunk off the cost of your game.

IMO you aren't going to find a cheaper Halo 3 than what this will cost if you sell of the figures.

I believe this will be around the same size as Heroclix, but I could see them being a bit smaller to accommodate the vehicles.

Yeah, that's the pre-order bonus. You pay $60 for the game and get a $250 figure for free.

If you want your deposit back I have no clue, otherwise just don't go and pick it up.

The pre-order is for the 2 inch figure. The battle damaged Scarab was a San Diego Comic Con exclusive but there will be a nation wide release of another Scarab (and it is as big as it looks, absolutely huge!).

Target does do the Legendary Pre-Order according to their website, but isn't showing details about the Halo Actionclix just yet.

I wonder if you get the pre-order bonus right when you pre-order, or when you go to pick up the actual game. (I am kinda interested in the Halo ActionClix stuff...)

uh sorry my last post was confusing, i want to preorder halo 3 from their online site and have them ship it to me. but i was wondering if CC will cancel my order out of the blue, like randomly for some reason. if thats possible then i rather go to gamestop or ebgames and preorder it there. basically i'm asking if i preorder from their site, will i be 100% sure that i'm getting it first day, i wont have to worry about cc cancleing my order?

I sure do remember, since I was working there at the time I was able to get a guide held on for me till I got the game later in the week.

So you can preorder the Legendary edition at Target? How much do you have to put down? I'd be willing to give my money to Target and get a free little figure than give a $130 to EB/GS and get nothing.

Me too actually....The only thing holding me back is that I don't think stores like CC or Target will have midnight openings.
