Well, good news everyone!
The first batch of my Halo ActionClix miniatures arrived today! The first 45 minis (of 85) are now in my hot little hands, and I am ready to play. A few of them are slightly squished, but should be fine. I got extras, plus, all of the problems are slanting of the figure in relation to the base. Since I was planning on doing the rebasing in the near future anyway, this is a no biggie issue to me. Plus, when the second batch get here (which are the booster pack figs) I will have plenty of work that can be done with just what I have, and not worry about the goofy ones.
In any event, this is great news! As soon as I get home, I will likely start posting pics.
