LEGO Halo Ship

LEGO and Halo fans rejoice! LEGO master Lee Jones has recreated the "UNSC Pillar of Autumn" from Halo with nothing but bricks. Unfortunately, it's not for sale as it took him approximately 3.5-years to complete at the cost of $7,000. Plus, it weighs a massive 220-pounds and measures 7-feet in length. In the games, it's a Halcyon-class light cruiser in the UNSC Navy. Prior to the Fall of Reach, the Pillar of Autumn was selected to support Operation: RED FLAG, a SPARTAN-II mission to capture Covenant leaders. Captain Jacob Keyes was placed in command. The operation was forestalled by the Covenant assault on Reach; the cruiser carried some of the few UNSC survivors and fled the system having lost most of its intended SPARTAN-II passenger.

In the games, Master Chief may appear to be the hero, or at least the guy you can count on, but off-screen he can be an entirely different character, one that isn't so reliable, and wouldn't mind screwing over friends for his benefit. Continue reading to see why.
