    Looking for some constructive criticism on this. It's not done of course, I will be painting the armor either red or purple??? and doing some fixes. Mostly I just wanted to post it on here to get some suggestions as to things I may change. I have considered hallowing out the thigh armor and gluing it too the thighs. IDK just looking for input.

    I don't like it at all. That's just not Halo.

    I like it. It's halo enough to me. I would suggest keeping the green (or even darker than the present green)

    come on biscuits, surely there's something you like about it. :) 

    cycrolus, I think what you've done looks very clean and you've managed to merge the two different toys together really well. I would hollow out those thigh pieces and throw them on just to see how it looks. or maybe make them removable. does the helmet fit?
    nice going. looks good so far.

    I agree with biscuits. I hate to be "That Guy" but it doesn't look like something in the halo universe. It looks more like an empty fanservice piece.

    Plus the armor you chose doesn't really work well for a female body. You should try maybe finding the Halo ODST Dare figure seen here: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=MCF12878&mode=retail (It's recently been sighted at retail)

    I think it was supposed to be a fanservice peice, I seriously doubt he intended her fm go into battle. with long flowing hair , or exposed skin in space, lol.

    good job getting the peices to fit I dig the idea

    I like the green colour. Does she have knee articulation like a Barbie? If not, find a revoltch figure you can do this to. She has to be able to pose well. If you are going to sell it you should include a little invisibility orb from Halo:CE to go with it as a bonus. Or try another one with the clear armour set. Cool idea, there could be alot of fans out there for these.

    I can only hope someone looking like that cosplays as Master Chief at SakuraCon. :D 

    I don't mind it being without thigh armor (less is more, in the most perverted sense of it). But I do think that if there's a way to do it, you should use the arms from the original female's figure and just put the wristlets/gauntlets on, as well as those type-specific shoulder pads.

    And speaking of type-specific, it'd be really cool to see the facemasks/visors worn sort of like a cap. Not so much encompassing the crown of the head, but over the forehead or something. Variety is always a good thing.

    A Master Chief girl
    An ODST chick
    A Scout
    A Spartan Mk.3
    A Hayabusa girl

    That'd be really cool to see.

    Oh man, that is so hot...I'm a big Halo freak, (still wearing out Legendary on Halo 1) ...I like it! I like the current color too, just darken it a little....I like the concept...and if anybody wasn't familiar with this concept, they should watch the "Haloid" video on YouTube! :drool:

    He used the McFarlane HALO Masterchief figure..I should know, when I worked there, It was the first HALO figure I did. Ugh, that thing was a P.I.T.A.!

    The Articulation aint bad but the shoulders, elbows & hips shoulda been engineered better.

    I can see it in Halo...I'd leave it green though to match the Halo color scheme. If you posted that in red or purple, I never would've thought, 'Halo'.

    Also, to prove I worked on this guy, a little known fact: both feet were erroneously given "right-toe" boot tips in production! I looooove China! hehehe
