halo gravity hammer

Man at Arms follows the exploits of the blacksmiths at Baltimore Knife and Sword as they create prop-versions of weapons from popular movies, video games and comics. In their latest video, they tackled another ambitious project—the Gravity Hammer from Halo!

When complete, the massive hammer stands at six feet tall and clocks in at 100 pounds! Check out all of the work that went into building this incredible prop after the break.

The limited edition Halo Needler replica from NECA looks amazing in all its motorized glory, but it comes with an intimidating price tag of $300. However, it does have some pretty spectacular features:

Complete your Spartan armor with a colossal 1:1 replica of one of Halo’s most iconic weapons! From the award-winning video game series, the Needler is now available as a limited edition, full-size 1:1 replica featuring LED lights and over a dozen motorized “crystal shards.”

When you squeeze the trigger, the crystal shards retract in sequence to simulate being fired. To reload, simply travel to the Sanghelios moon of Suban for extra crystals (or press the reset button located in the grip).

This replica is also 100% accurate to its game counterpart since NECA Toys partnered with Microsoft and 343 Studios (formerly Bungie) to create the gun directly from the 3D model used in the game.

I really just want to hold one. Forever. But yeah, $300 is pretty steep. Fortunately, you do have the BOOMco Needler option, which is only $40 (and probably a lot more fun).

Check out more images and videos of the NECA Needler in action after the break.

Gamer and LEGO builder Nick “Nick Brick” Jensen has created an impressive, life-size replica of the Halo 5: Guardians MA5D Assault Rifle using a whopping 3,250 bricks. The massive weapon includes all the bells and whistles from the game like a BR sight, DMR scope, Suppressor, and an Energy bayonet. Measuring 33-inches, the LEGO rifle weighs 5.5 pounds and even has a squeezable trigger.

Jensen’s Halo 5 gun will be on display during BrickCon 2015 next month in Seattle if you want to check it out in person. In the meantime, more awesome images and a video are available after the break.

This bit of gaming wizardry is the work of Jimmy Boswell who pulls off an incredible shot in Halo. It ricochets off of no less than six different surfaces before killing the enemy with a headshot. If that wasn’t enough, the shot was also part of a double kill.

The Needler is an iconic weapon from Halo, and soon you’ll be able to play with a toy dart gun version from Mattel that appears to be based on the BOOMco Twisted Spinner.

It was spotted at Toy Fair in New York City over the weekend and it’s got darts that glow and will stick to specially treated surfaces.

This model of the Pillar of Autumn from the game Halo might not be scale, but it’s absolutely huge! It measures 7′ long, weighs 200 pounds and took Lee Jones 3.5 years to build.  He estimates that all those Lego cost about $7,000.

It was shown at BrickWorld and BrickCon earlier this year, and you get a real sense of this thing’s size when you see the people milling about in the background. The BrickPodcast also interviewed Jones at BrickWorld to find out more about this incredible build.

You haven’t played Halo until you’ve played the Nic Cage edition. This mod puts his face on everything. He is Master Chief. He is also a moon, a butt, and a pair of boobs. I am not making this up. You simply have to watch the video to appreciate what Nic Cage can do for Halo.

halo singing

The latest craze these days seems to be finding somehwere with suitable acoustics and singing the theme from Halo. We’ve heard a guy bust out the haunting tune in a stairwell, and now Max has done the same in an empty chapel in Switzerland. The reverb in the church makes his a cappella performance sound like an entire choir is singing. It’s spine-tingling.

Be awed by the singing after the break.

We’re not sure how this Halo 3 Easter Egg remained a secret for so long–seven years to be precise–but the cat’s out of the bag now. Team Beyond noted that Bungie has been teasing this Egg for a bit. In fact, former Bungie developer Adrian Perez, currently at Sucker Punch, once said the following in a community Q&A:

Q: What is your proudest moment in your time at Bungie?

A: Showing my wife the Easter egg I put in the halo 3 loading screen for her – the one that nobody has found yet.

YouTuber Lord Zedd finally found the Egg, and it seems that if you click in both thumbsticks while waiting on the Halo 3 loading screen on December 25, a special video will start. Once you slow the whole thing down, you’ll see a simple birthday message that Perez wrote for his wife, Lauren.

Oh, all the feels!

Check out the Easter Egg after the break…
