Hmmm....says here they're 1.67 meters tall, or....5.48 feet.
I don't blindly follow a wiki site like this....where information can easily be wrong if the person behind it is clueless, but....look at the other races. Elites, Brutes, the height values are correct for the others. So....I'm going to assume it might be close. Add to that, it's a site for Halo nuts :lol:

I gotta hand it to you though. I always wondered who would pick a pick a grunt costume, and what it would look like when it's done. Please please....when you're done, I need pictures! :lol:

.....and....2 days?! What are you doing on here! Rush! :p

Yeah judging by what ive done so far which is just the top of the backpack thing im not gettin it done in 2 days for teh costume contest :mad: so ill just put more time into it

also im like 5'6" and when i get into "combat position" which is like hunched over and your legs spread ridiculously apart and knees rlly bent (like a grunt/hunter) i stand about like 4'10"/5' so i think it would be a realistic fit

Yeah, I hate it when you get that costume idea too late....then realize you don't have the time for it. I tried to start an Elite costume 1 month before the Halo 3 launch, and a week later....realized how crazy I was.

5'6" eh? Sounds perfect for the role. Make sure you bring some plasma grenades with you, and practice how to run around with your arms flailing. I love it when they do that :lol:

I'm actually makin a grunt, a jackal, and a hunter along with my Elite. I'm gonna be using my 7 yr old sister to play the grunts in my film. For the backpack, make sure to have straps like regualr backpacks that come over, wrap around your waist, and connect at you lower back. This'll help balance out the weight and keep the backpack up better. Once I get some progress on mine, I'll post some pix.

theres only one explanation for a grunt being measured in at 5 ft tall, and thats because they probable added in the GIANT pyramid on its back without the pyramid there only like 3ft tall

:mad: Thats because theyre always hunched forward by the weight of their methane respirator thing in that backpack of theirs but when they stand upright theyre about 5 ft. tall
