Halo: 12" Figures Wave 3 - Spartan Palmer (Dual Magnums) - Jazwares 2021

A couple weeks after I made the surprise discovery of Wave 02 of Jazwares 12" Halo line, I was in a Ross store (seeing if I could spot those Marvel Legends vintage figures everyone seemed to be finding) when I stumbled across Wave 03 featuring Commander Sarah Palmer. Again, this assortment was completely unknown to me. It's great timing too because I just started watching the Halo series on Paramount and I'm obsessed. They took what I thought was a confusing overly-militaristic action genre and made it mysterious, insightful, and intriguing. The gender dynamic is amazing, too. I don't know the actors names, but there are at least five female characters I am in love with. And that's not even including the two female Spartans I've noticed so far. I'm excited to follow this season each week, and it's renewed my interest in the toys I already own. My Halo purchases have always been based solely on aesthetics, but now I have an awesome narrative to back it up. Let's check out Spartan Palmer below!

Spartan Palmer has a change in articulation from previous 12" Jazwares releases: she has no knee articulation. This may be a line-wide downgrade, or it might have been a specific change for this armor sculpt. She still has a ball-jointed head, swivel wrists, and hinge-and-swivel shoulders, elbows, and hips.

Spartan Palmer comes with her Dual Magnums.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are my Sarah Palmer figures together: Bandai Sprukits, McFarlane, Jazwares 12", and Jazwares 6".

And here are the three Jazwares 12" ladies together: Vale, Palmer, and Tanaka.

And all the female Halo 12" figures so far: Jazwares Tanaka, Jazwares Vale, Mattel Cortana, Mattel Vale, and Jazwares Palmer.
