LEGO-like Halo 3 figures land in UK

Pack includes 'invisible' Master Chief

Security for virtualized datacentres

We all thought LEGO's Star Wars figures were the acme of geek-friendly toys, but with Halo 3 about to roll - officially at least - something even better's just arrived in the UK: LEGO-style Master Chief models.

The pack of four 2.5in figures - standard Spartan green; network-play like red and blue; and a rather cute transparent 'invisible' man - come from Japan, of course, and come complete with machine pistol and assault rifle accessories.

They come from Japanese toymaker Medicom's Kubrick line - we wonder what Stanley would have thought of that - and are jointed at shoulders and hips, just like LEGO figures.

They're said to be "limited edition" packs that will "never be re-released", but we suspect there are more than enough to go round for all those hungry Halo fans looking for a desktop diorama that'll remind them of their Covenant culling exploits.

The Halo 3 Kubricks are available now from Firebox.com for 20 quid.
