The halo controller isn't too bad. It's blueish iirc with some nice graphics as I own one. Comes with a master chief figure.

It's a toss up in all honesty. I have gotten about a dozen controllers over the last few months and most are sooooooo poorly taken care of. If you don't mind taking an hour or so, and have the necessary tools), get a few for cheap (genuine ones) and get yourself some replacement thumbsticks. Most will come back to life with a little TLC and a lot of cleaning. Just be aware that most replacement sticks are for xbox one. Those will not fit on a 360 controller. Look in the description to make sure they are for the 360.

91 isopropyl will be your best friend for electronics and taking off scuffs (colors, not scuffs into plastics) Be prepared for some nasty shit inside controllers and button holes *insert (in)appropriate joke here*
