Company to sell Halo armor replicas

Got an extra $3,500? If so, you can sport the Master Chief's MJOLNIR suit this Halloween.

Recently, Bungie Studios posted an interview with Atlanta-based Nightmare Armor, a small art company which will soon be selling full-size, fully wearable replicas of the Master Chief's MJOLNIR armor from Halo. While they probably wouldn't stand up to much plasma fire, the fiberglass and aluminum replicas look amazingly realistic, and even include blue lights on the helmet and a fully mirrored faceplate.

While the MJOLNIR replicas are not exactly proper for formal gatherings, Nightmare Armor's Brian Boling has found several occasions to wear them. "We go to conventions such as: Dragon Con, ComicCon, Costume Con, Gen Con, Chicago Con, just to name a few," he told Bungie. "This year we're all excited about possibly making it out to E3." The replica would also possibly be one of the most badass Halloween costumes ever constructed.

Unfortunately, like the full-sized Robocop suits that occasionally pop up on eBay, the MJOLNIR replicas are not cheap. When the Nightmare Armor site is officially re-launched in a few weeks--currently, only a primitive store is online--it will offer the fully finished suits for $3,500 a pop in Space Marine green. For those who'd prefer to paint their replicas themselves, unfinished pieces are available individually.

This is pretty sick but I think that it ruins the whole concept of going out there and making your own armour

Wow. At first when i read this, I thought that this was totally fake. But this could be awesome. I just hate how much it costs though...

I know a guy in St. Pete Florida that can do that for $500. He made me the suit, Battle Rifle, and Sword.

Personally, that's a waste. With $3,500, you could buy a semester's tuition at a community college. Or 70 different $50 games.

If you could show your face to people on X box live Halo 3(I'm not sure if you can) that would be so awesome if you had a voice changer to go along with it."I AM MASTER CHIEF AND I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE!"

Thats pretty cool, but it doesn't look as good as my Darth Vader suit, which was a lot friendlier to my wallet.
