Not content with merely being one Master Chief, this new statue from Kotobukiya has decided to become three different iterations of the video game supersoldier instead, thanks to the addition of some nifty addon packs that let you kit out your Spartain whichever way you want.
It looks like NECA is ready to stop teasing its Master Chief-inspired motorcycle helmet and finally start shipping an actual product as early as July of this year.
