Toy Fair 2017: Halo Mattel 6″ Figures Wave 2! Arbiter! Vale!

NY Toy Fair 2017 Halo Spartan Vale Figure Mattel

Given the almost nonexistent flow of news from Mattel about their Halo 6″ Figures Collector’s Series, I was sort of dreading the possibility of attending the New York Toy Fair 2017 this weekend and hearing that the 6″ Halo line was cancelled.
