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.

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.
