That’s some dedication right there, man.
The Pillar of Autumn is, of course, the Halo franchise’s most famous spaceship, so it makes sense that a lot of the fans’a adoration for the franchise will also be directed towards the ship itself. One such form of this adoration is a bit… disturbing in its sheer elaborateness.
You see, one fan has spent three and a half years, and over $7000 in Lego bricks (yes, Legos) to create a real life to scale replica of The Pillar of Autumn. I’m not kidding, you can see it above right there.
It was made by a Lee Jones, previously famous for his recreation of the final Matrix battle, and the Balrog battle from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.
Unfortunately, the model will soon be destroyed, as Jones said the ship suffered damage on its way back from a showing in Seattle.
“A new SHIP will rise in its place,” he said, “but from a different universe than the Halo universe.”
Personally, I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the Millennium Falcon.
