The life size figure of Master Chief has been developed at Madame Tussauds studios in London for the Las Vegas attraction . The figure will be around 7.2 inches tall and will weight around 275 lbs. The figure was created by 10 artists in around 892 hours of hard work . Around 1000  pounds of clay have been used in the statue.

    This should be interesting. Great find buddy.

  6. Master Chief, eh? I find it strange they picked him over so many heroes in gaming nowadays. I think it would be very interesting to see Prince Arthas or Illidan next to the Master Chief.
