    OMG - Airsoft ;)

    OMG I want one :)

    go airsofting a lot and I'd LOVE to rock up in this kit instead of my SO19 kit =p

    Help!!

    We're planning something special for halloween this year.

    Anyone know where I can get a Bowser from Super Mario costume?

    Is it CE approved?

    I'd love to wear that riding my bike!

    Cool! No, it's not. Yes it is. No it's not (ad infinitum)

    I want this. But I can't think of a single place I could wear it without looking like a complete twat.

    So I don't really want it at all.

    But (deep down, tragically) I do. Maybe I could could just sit and play Halo wearing it. On my own. With the curtains drawn. Yes, that would work. I'd be a happy twat, but still a twat nonetheless.

    I wonder if they do warthog bodykits for the fiesta....

    Why so short?

    I guess the sort of power that comes with a Spartan suit needs SOME sort of limitation?

    I'm going to put MY brain into a robot alligator. And I'll have the strength of 10 gorillas!

  8. Ian

    Would rock...

    ...if it came with the standard rifle, but the SMG? No thanks!

    You could wear it at work to convince users that they can in fact change their own ink cartridges or convince clients that signing that contract is a good idea!

    @ Ian

    You'd be supprised,

    Last time I took my kit into work to go airsofting straight after, well, having an MP5 and a half dozen grenades on your desk seems to stop a lot of the stupid questions...and some of the good ones too.

    Gawd help us, where's VERO when you need them?

    Read / think more widely

    This does *not* tie in well with another story from yesterday:

    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/02/13/mp3_gun_swoop

    Nice to think about wearing it (and accessories) while out and about (although I agree - you could feel a bit of a prat), but it had better be bullet-proof!

    Helicopters, because they're the quickest way to get an armed police response unit to your location.

    Great Paintball suit

    On the few places you wouldn´t look like a complete twat, is a paintball match. Plus you don´t need to paint it as the seller describes. Well, not a complete twat, but some people would still have a laugh at your expense... hehehe....

    Hey, a motorcycle helmet made to look like that would be nice, and you could use it on a daily basis... if you own a bike...

    You clearly haven't been at a sci-fi con.

    Actually, you'd still look like a twat, but at least you'd have company.

    It doesn't look a very practical costume for competing on Master Chef...

    Hmm, I don't know what you're referring to there, because in Finland, "Vero" is the national tax administration...

    Waht one really needs...

    Surely after what happened to that mechanic in Stoke...

    ... The SMG could be replaced with a black mp3 player? Cheaper, same effective risk of arrest if waving it around in the street.

    RIFs...

    Wonder if this seller realises that he probably can't sell the SMG part to most of the population do to the VCRB?

    Please, the sparkly green cape that goes with my zoot suit.

    "I want this. But I can't think of a single place I could wear it without looking like a complete twat."

    I'm reminded of that US National Guardsman who called himself Optimus Prime - he didn't dress up as Optimus Prime, he just changed his name, and then he went to Iraq as a combat firefighter, as part of the (googles) 5694TH Tactical Crash Rescue Unit. So far he has not been killed, as far as I can tell. It would be horrible if he was killed.

    I suppose the lesson is that if you have manly cojones and the right walk, you'll look good even dressed as as Halo's space marine. And that is why I pick Paris Hilton as my avatar.

    Master Chief Suit...correction

    Sorry, typo...Halo2 not Halo3

  25. Martin Owens

    Some assembly?

    I'm a modern consumerist, I want my body suite pre painted to order, pre sanded and damn well served to me on a gold platter which emits tons of CO2 to float towards me.

    Master chief suit...

    That was one of a limited production run made by a company called Nightmare Armor Studios for the release of Halo3. It was features on the cover of a few gaming magazines prior to the release.

    Here's a link to see some of their stuff:

    Over all incredibly impressive work.

    not the first

    seen these when first halo came out.

    but so far this one has a nice quality.

    Whut ?

    'Imagine how impressed your friends would be when you rock up to a fancy dress party dressed just like the Master Chief Petty Officer John-117, in a Spartan combat suit.'

    Imagine how quickly your odds of getting laid at the same party would vanish....

    too short?

    I thought the Master Chief was a tall bugger. Certainly more than 5'8". A little fellow couldn't pistol whip those big aliens, after all.

    Mine's the one with optical camoflague... What do you mean you can't find it?

    Re: Sci-fi con.

    Most of the guys I've seen that go to sci-fi cons wouldn't be able to fit that suit. And I'm not talking about the height either.

    Hey, maybe weight-watchers would be interested?

    @Graham Lockley, flawed...

    'Imagine how quickly your odds of getting laid at the same party would vanish....'

    You assume that the Halo player had a chance of a shag in the first place...

    @ Maksim

    Read again chap. He said if you are plus 5'8'' the suit will NOT need modification. A la only shorties must suffer for wearing their Chief suit.

    I'm sure he was at least 14 feet tall...

    Helmets

    Does it come with the helmet, with perspex visor? If it is totally complete I want one for my towns New Years Eve festivities, where if you don't go in fancy dress people spray piss on you with water pistols.

  35. Dr Patrick J R Harkin

    Five foot four to five foot eight?

    Bit of a shortarse, this Master Chief, then?

  36. ZeroTheHero
    Go

    @Marky W

    Then you'll be needing one of these, a sander, lots of fibreglass and a tinwormed Range Rover/Disco - http://www.dakar4x4.me.uk/gallery/gallery.htm

    would presumably be "Halo to the Chief".
