Halo Reach: Noble Six (Lieutenant SPARTAN-B312)

Purchased Oct, 2010
PhP 999.75 at Toys R'Us

I didn't really enjoy the video game because of the ending - though you get a hint of it at the start (I really don't understand why video game developers think that players want to die in the end). Anyway, here's the avatar of one of John 117's brothers who you can play - and customize (hell you can even make the brother a sister in the video game) in the Halo prequel: Halo Reach. He's the first in a series released by McFarlane ( for the video game. Series 1 includes custom Spartans and some of the other Spartans that you can see - but not play - in the video game (Emile and Jorge).

Sigma Six Rolling Operations Command Center

Purchased complete on EBAY for PhP 4,000 in 2008

The centerpiece of my G.I. Joe collection: The Sigma Six Rolling Operations Command Center (ROCC). The ROCC made its first appearance in the Sigma Six cartoon where it served as the mobile headquarters for the small, elite G.I. Joe team. If you follow the series, you'll note that there is some discrepancy with the size of the actual vehicle. In the cartoons, the ROCC sometimes grows or shrinks to fit the demands of the animators. At one point it even housed the RHINO (Rapid Heli-Integrated Neutralizing Offense) which clearly this cannot.
