They are not called dolls, they are called Action Figures!

When Japanese Video Game Giant Square Enix chose to branch out into licensed and custom merchandise from its own video games and the games of other studios, a lot of gamers greeted the news with some surprise -- but the most recent set of action figures from the company may be the best thing to hit Christmas Stockings since the Game Boy Advanced games went to a smaller box size!
The most recent iconic game to receive the action figure treatment is Halo: Reach, which has a line of figures out just in time to make the cut for last minute additions to your Christmas List! Microsoft licensed the characters to Square, who worked with Kai and Play Arts to bring us figures for Emile, Jun, and of course, Noble Six!
Priced at $49.99 US they are not cheap, but considering that they come with a collection of weapons, finely detailed custom paint jobs, and are fully articulated, they may well be worth that price! The figure for Noble Six comes with his Assault Rifle, some grenades, and alternate replaceable hand parts, giving you some interesting possibilities in posing your Action Figure -- you got that? Action Figure! Not Doll!
The action figure line available on Square's website store includes offerings from Bayonetta, Dragon Quest, Kingdom Hearts, Resident Evil, Metal Gear, and Front Mission, just to name a few, but its plush line of Chocobo are high on our list -- hint hint!
