What do you guys think about the Marine armour? Although i appreciate that Halo isnt exactly about realism, i think their armour has got less realistic (perhaps plausable is a better word) and getting more and more impractical in a combat situation. Whatever happened to their green tactical display monocle?
i dont think they wanted to make it exactly like the game..
i try to look past the simple fact they dont have a green monacle
and look at the warthog and the pretty damn good job they did with the armor.
doesnt always have to be exact to look awesome
Found this in a search and it may be old news for some of you but may be new news for others
Weta to make high-end Halo 3 collectibles
Weta will, indeed be making high-end Halo 3 collectibles. The announcement that Weta Limited acquired the Halo 3 license was was made at this year’s Comic Con.
As of yet, specifics have not yet been announced though, if the short film is an indication, you can expect to see life-size helmets, weapons and similar scaled-down replicas, er, collectibles. The only information was the announcement and the image to the right which simply has the Halo logo (the Halo 3 logo is faded behind it), a silhouette of Master Chief (not a prototype image) and the phrases “Limited Edition High End Collectibles” and “Coming Soon.”
Weta does an incredible job with its products with amazing detail and high-quality materials. The only other company that can compete for precision and quality is Master Replicas. In case you did not know, typically the phrases “limited edition” and “high-end” mean big money. The two phrases together means even bigger money. Do not expect these to be cheap.
Other big name (movie) licenses held by Weta include: King Kong, Superman Returns, The Legend of Zorro and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
