It Only Took $7000 To Build This LEGO Halo Spaceship

It Only Took $US7,000 To Build This LEGO Halo Spaceship

The iconic "Pillar of Autumn" from Halo, now in LEGO form. And it's damn huge — not exactly minifigure-scale, needing more than one person to move it.

According to its builder, Lee Jones, it took 3.5 years to complete it and it weighs a massive 220 pounds (100 kg). It's around 7 feet (2.15 metres) in length and the building blocks cost around $US7000. Woah.

Here are some more shots by El Barto from all angles. The engines look insanely cool.

    Actually I'm guessing it's not far from minifig scale. You might just fit a minifig in a deck level on that thing - but I think it needs to be little bit bigger.

    Sweet jesus! That's awesome, always impressed by the guys who build this type of stuff w Lego and NO INSTRUCTIONS

      Oh, so if he spent this much money and time on this project, but used instructions, you would be rolling your eyes? :P

    Why not with Mega Bloks? The official endorsed playset by Microsoft.

      Mega bloks are terrible. I bought one once and the colour of the bricks weren't even consistent.

      Nothing beats lego.

    Only $7K? And it's made of actual Lego? I don't buy it. It's Lego, it's more expensive than it's own weight in gold. This has to be closer to the quarter million mark. I mean, a government could buy the materials to build this, at the risk of plunging their country into recession... :p

    (Looks fucking awesome though!)

    What would be really impressive is if you could split it open in two and it had a detailed mini figure diorama of the maw warthog run overrun with The Flood, Master Chief's Cryo Tube bay and the Command Deck with Capt. Keyes and Cortana mini figures.

      Too bad that Warthog run is 30 times the length of the ship :P

        See we were made to believe that the Maw run was 30 times the length of the ship but in fact it was the bending of reality. Similar to the RIT Escherian Stairwell
