Well thank God for that. I've been getting back into Halo recently for ODST's sake, and was gonna *attempt* to bring myself to buy a set. Of course, $10.99 for a turret and 3 Spartans is overpriced in my opinion. Hell, LEGO would get you a 2 turrets and 5 Spartans.

Or Minimates could get you really awsome Halo figures. Ya know, just throwing that out there Microsoft. wink.gif

They probably will not take your post seriously because you misspelled "throwing". Thanks TTF you've smurffed us all.

Give him a break guys! It's obviously Microsoft Word's fault because the spellcheck is so... faulty.

I have never understood why Microsoft gets the piss taken out of them so much. I have never had any problems with my PCs. The only MAC products I have ever owned are an iPod and an iPhone. I do love them but I have never used a MAC so I can't declare it's greatness over Windows.

Chalk another up for Windows; i have always used a PC and will never get a Mac. It's all aesthetics. Hell, the only things i will ever own from Apple are my multiple iPods and the rumored Tablet.

I'm a PC. tongue.gif

I've owned a Mac for 4 years and I've never had any problems; no crashing, no slowing down, nothing. And it has a large numbers of work files (psd, ai, etc). Just out of curiosity, TTF, how many times has yours crashed, and how old is it?

Crashed?? Never, actually. It's fairly new; i think my Dad got it last summer...he works for the Division of Taxation in Trenton, so they supply him with all sorts of new PCs and laptops.

Hell, i even use IE with McAfee Security Suite, and have had no internet or virus problems. PCs aren't as bad as Mac leads everyone to believe. wink.gif

For 20 dollars maybe..... But 9.99 in LEGO world = 2 People and a prop/small vehicle. sad.gif

I was just about to say the same thing!

I'll maybe get a set of these, just to see.

Also, PC is superior to Mac in almost every way. It just isn't as trendy and smooth as Mac.

No, he's right -- not making that one character doomed the line. Doomed, I tell you. The minute we left him out of Series 1 a raven flew through our window. And killed an intern.

See, I disagree. PCs slow down too fast, aren't that reliable, and crash often. This is from a guy who during college, had to do design work on a PC. Since the changeover to Mac, I've never had a single problem with my computer. I've all but forgot about things like tech support, virus scans, and blue screens of death. And most people, designers or otherwise, around here agree with me. Sure, there is the trendy factor for some people, but as I have mine for work, and is a tool first, it is from a working and high use view that I'm coming from.

I bought the Ghost set, and the figures are kind of cool for MB. I didn't like the Ghost, though. The hand controls and the round things on the sides of the vehicle won't stay on. These would have been way better as either LEGO or Minimates.

As for the Mac vs. PC debate: I have only ever owned PCs, and I've had numerous problems with viruses and such. I read in a recent Reader's Digest that most computer support personnel use Macs because of the near non-existant virus issues and slowdown. I'll likely switch over when I'm able to afford it.

Having owned both PCs and a single Mac (currently), I really appreciate the MAC; easy to use and very reliable (knock on wood).

I bought the Ghost; it was alright but I would not buy any of the other sets. The design was rather simple and the set was a bit over-priced. Also, the scale of the figures is quite small.

Getting this back on topic, does anyone have pix with minimates for size comparisons?

I always wondered how a Minimate would look in the McFarlane Ghost they put out a while back.

Thanks for posting. Good comparison pics.

As a side note, I still haven't gotten the minifig I purchased at the end of July. Anyone else participate in the 'free' promo?
