When those new Halo figs first started coming out, I was all excited and picked up a Master Chief. Right out of the package the hand broke off.
I returned it the same day and haven't bought another one since.

I have not bought anything McFarlane for about 10 years because of quality issues. Broken in package was common back then.

how do you think mcfarland made all his millions?people went out and bought replacement figures of the ones that broke when they took them out of the package.one of the many reasons i stopped buying anything mcfarland related.

The plastic is junk . I had ones from the beginning to like series 13 football and they are garbage. One plus is crazy glue seems to like the plastic. He was a trendsetter but like most he became complacent and he was overtaken by ppl more hungry than he was . All his B.S. variants poor quality sunk his battleship . My buddy opens all his sports pics and the ankles all start to bend from the weight of the poses and inevitably end up on the floor with a broken bat, hockey stick or a various body part.
As for those sister sites that no one cares about...let's see:
TFW2005 - Largest Transformers site on the internet.
ToyArk - Fastest growing "General Toys" site on the internet.
IshTalkers - Not a message board.
and stroke, stroke, stroke, stroke .

I collect the Halo series myself and I am even a member of the Spawn.com board (although I rarely post). There are some serious issues with joints getting stuck on these figures. You can try using a heat gun/hair dryer, putting the figure in the freezer and/or letting the figure sit in warm/hot water and the joints may loosen and not break off. However you may mess up the wash that is applied to these figures a little bit.
I have had 2 Spartans and 2 drones (wings) suffer major breakages but the drones I managed to fix. I also have an ODST that his shoulder socket is warped but not broken. Not really a bad track record considering how many figures I have but not really the durability/QC you'd expect of a "toy".
I have to say for the most part I'm super impressed with the new Sgt. Avery Johnson figure. Way better articulation than I imagined it would have had although they curiously left out a few joints that would have helped the range of motion of the arms a lot.

I'm not sure who you'd contact for customer service at McFarlane Toys - the people who used to fill those roles have been let go as part of the company's continued downsizing. :(

I have a moderate amount of McFarlane Halo stuff and I don't think any of mine is broken.
