Signed RvB Freelancer Poster and More


Podtacular is holding its first auction for a couple of things that we picked up at Halo Fest last year. I was finally able to get the posters unpacked and get everything else here a month or so ago, but it’s up for grabs now. There is a signed Red vs Blue Freelancer poster, a Halo Legends Cortana poster, and a Halo Fest in the pack. There are two of them up for auction on ebay and they both start at $20.00. Bidding ends on Saturday afternoon and all proceeds go to benefit Child’s Play. You can get one here or here.

Podtacular 263: Reclaimer’s Speculation

Download | Shownotes
We were all dazzled by what we saw from the Halo 4 panel at Halo Fest, but we really haven’t had the chance to speculate here on the show what we might expect to see from the upcoming Halo Reclaimer Trilogy. So we decided to take the Halo Lore master from HBO, GrimBrother One and speculate on what we could possibly see in the new games. We are also joined by Elusive Eagle from Spirits of Fire. If you’re at all interested in discussions that break down what we saw in the Conception Art Trailer, you’ll want to take a listen. Funnyboy and Zant117 from the community also join us. Enjoy

Podtacular Special: Halo Decade Show, Part 2

Download
If you weren’t able to make it to last night’s live event, fear not. We have the recording here for you in our second installment of our decade celebration for Halo. You will recognize some of the voices from our previous panel, but we picked up a few extras that we met at Halo Fest. Since it seems like everyone just can’t get Halo Fest out of the system (or maybe that’s just me), we focused on much of the activities at the event and what was there to see. And yes, we managed to talk for five hours. Enjoy

PLUSHY!

If you didn’t get a chance to go to Halo Fest and pick up some goodies, then you’re in luck.  HBO is selling some left-over Grunt plushies that didn’t get nabbed.  Due to the limited number of plushies that were made, there’s a limit to three-per-person.  If you order early enough, they’ll throw in the VIP party invitation.  Hurry on over and get yours today.
