TCN Hottest Toy of the Week - Halo 3 Orange Hayabusa figure

This week's Hottest Toy of the Week is the Halo 3 Orange Hayabusa Spartan Soldier action figure. For anyone that collects Halo 3 action figures, you know that there are a huge amount of exclusive colored variants spread around to different retailers. I picked up the Walmart-exclusive Blue Scout trooper this week, and Entertainment Earth is selling a Yellow ODST variant while BigBadToyStore is selling a Violet CQB exclusive.
But the Orange Huyabusa action figure is not available in the U.S. It is a Series 3 exclusive to Game Station UK and Game Australia, and in pretty small quantities at that. This has caused the price of this figure to skyrocket on the secondary market. One sold this past week for a whooping $305 on eBay, and other current auctions show similar high demand (and along with it high prices). We get readers from all over the world on this website, so if you can get your hands on one of these babies, you truly have what seems to be one of the hottest toys of the moment.
