$19.99 MSRP, release date sometime in July

via IGN, a few days ahead of Toyfair;

McFarlane will be introducing an initial wave of toys that features the Guardian classes — Titan, Hunter, and Warlock — which will all come in window box collector packaging, featuring a Destiny-branded base. And as part of this partnership, McFarlane will create these figures, as well as more 10-inch figures, and role play items.

"Detail, depth, and customization, that's what Destiny gives its players, and that's what made it the biggest new video game franchise launch," Owner and CEO of McFarlane Toys Todd McFarlane said in a statement accompanying the announcement. "With our upcoming Destiny line, fans can expect that same amount of detail and customization that we have built our own reputation on."


Vault of Glass: Titan comes equipped with iconic Gjallarhorn rocker launcher and Invective shotgun. Fully customizable figure with 14+ points of articulation for dynamic posing. Stylized Destiny display base included.

King's Fall: Warlock comes equipped with Touch of Malice scout rifle and Black Hammer sniper rifle. Fully customizable figure with 14+ points of articulation for dynamic posing. Stylized Destiny display base included.

Destiny's Iron Banner: Hunter comes equipped with Thorn hand cannon and Hung Jury scout rifle. Fully customizable figure with 14+ points of articulation for dynamic posing. Stylized Destiny display base included.

Specs:
Paint: Original Paint
Format: Action Figure
Scale: Approx. 7 Inches
Packaging: Window Box Collector Packaging
MSRP: $19.99

These look to have slightly more articulation than their Titanfall 2 and Gears 4 figures, which have been statues for all intents and purposes, but still less than their old Halo stuff. Still, looking pretty neat- probably the first of many, considering how passionate the Destiny fanbase seems to be.

Hunter with a nerfed Thorn.

It's a start bungie, expanding Destiny outside of just a game, now drop a novel to expand upon the story

McFarlane toys have always left something to be desired IMO. Even when their deco and sculpts were amazing, they had the most shit joints ever, if any.

I like the Warlock with Black Spindle, color aside, he pretty much is how I left my Destiny main. It's McFarlane so these are probably going to be around 20$. Maybe I'll cave if I see one warming a peg at a Toys R Us or Target or something.

Edit: And of course they wouldn't hold a candle to 3A's, McFarlane's offering is likely about 10% of the price of a 3A piece and ~5 inches shorter.

These don't really hold a candle to 3A's Destiny figures.

At nearly 10x the price, and twice the size, I'd certainly hope not! These are just mass retail figures, they're never going to hold a candle to much higher end collector pieces.

Mcfarlane ? those guys are kinda bad on their figures quality but have cheap price to be a toy unless you want a premium expensive figure for collection

I'd pay good money money for a figure of my Hunter's look when I stopped playing about a year ago. Cape and all, loved looking at my hunter run around town.

How tall are these?

And as part of this partnership, McFarlane will create these figures, as well as more 10-inch figures, and role play items.
The wording here implies that they are 10 inches.

Fake Edit - Gamespot says 10, too:
Announced this week, the new, 10-inch figures are for the game's three classes: Titan, Hunter, and Warlock. The $20 toys come standing on a Destiny-themed base.

Bleh, those are ugly. Especially the 'lock. Guess I'll keep waiting for some reasonably priced cool Destiny swag that doesn't sell out in two minutes on their store :(

edit: different lighting makes the titan alright, plus it has a kerjiggityhorn?! maybe, just maybe that one would be decent...

I would buy one of the Cryptarch just to melt it. That guy caused me so much grief back in 2014

Kinda wish it was part of the Color Tops line, but they look good. Might pick one or two up at some point.

New prototype images from the show floor:



10" Lord Saladin:

Those prototypes look significantly better than what is in the OP.

Also I want that Lord Saladin.

Really though why do the Titan VoG armor? It looks like ass. Hunter VoG armor is one of the nicest sets in the game, shoulda done that over the garbage Iron Banner one.

These are definitely wait and see for me. Those show floor pictures look nice, but I have no interest in McFarlane's mini statues with useless articulation.
