NECA has brought an amazingly scaled, fully motorized Halo Needler from the hit series to life and it … is … awesome.

Now Halo fans can complete their Spartan Armor with this amazingly accurate 1:1 scaled replica of one of the most recognizable weapons of the Halo franchise: The Needler. This collectible features LED lights, in-game sound effects, and a dozen fully motorized ‘crystal shards’.

 

The materials used for the casing are plastic but this thing has heft. It feels weighted in the hands and is very easy to control. The colours used where the (plastic) crystals insert is a luminescent purple seen in-game that adds that futuristic touch one would expect from this iconic weapon. The placement of the LEDs couldn’t be anymore perfect and tune in sync when firing.

This piece is so much fun to play with and to admire. When you squeeze the trigger, the crystal shards will retract in a sequence to simulate being fired making it incredibly game-accurate and an immersive experience.

This bad boy is a massive feat and a colossal edition to any gamer’s dream. The dimensions are approximately 29″ long and about 10″ tall and weighs just over 9 pounds. The LED lights do require 4 C batteries, which are not included.

The price point is a little high but being fully mechanized as well as being true to game in both size and build, the price is well-earned. You can get this incredible piece through online wholesalers like Amazon  or directly from the NECA site for $299.99.
