Halo Fan Makes Life-Size Master Chief and Arbiter Statues, and They Look Incredible

A talented artist has created two life-sized statues based on iconic characters from the Halo franchise. Developed by Bungie and released as an original Xbox exclusive in 2001, Halo established itself as an instant classic, one which many have cited as a game that redefined first-person shooters on consoles.

The latest game in the franchise came in the form of Halo Infinite, which was released in 2021 and was fairly well-received by critics and fans. The game was developed by 343 Industries, who took over the franchise after Bungie finished Halo 3, and it had a more open-world focus than previous entries. Along with the single-player shift, Halo Infinite also features a sprawling multiplayer mode that has received regular updates for three years. While players can stand in the shoes of the Master Chief through the games, one fan had an idea to recreate the Spartan in the real world, and he didn't stop there, recreating one of Chief's most famous allies.

Posting to the r/Halo subreddit, a user by the name of GalacticArmory has created two incredible Halo statues showcasing life-sized versions of Master Chief and The Arbiter. In the post, GalacticArmory confirms that the incredibly detailed pieces match the heights of the characters that are given in-game. This means Master Chief is standing at 7’2,” with The Arbiter over a foot taller. Both statues were painstakingly crafted in around two years and are fully 3D printed. The OP confirms that the Master Chief took around 6 months to print, paint, and weld together, with the Arbiter taking around 16 months to complete.

Fans of the post are enamored with the results of both statues, with over 4k upvotes at the time of writing. Most replies praise GalacticArmory’s dedication to creating two life-sized statues in such stunning detail, while some of the commenters want to know what’s next, with the OP considering moving onto the Star Wars franchise as their next project, or jokingly remarking that a life-sized, 280-foot-long replica of the Flood’s Gravemind could be in the cards.

After 23 years, Halo remains one of Microsoft’s best-selling franchises, although the future of the series looks to be up in the air. In January 2023, developers at 343 were impacted by numerous lay-offs as part of Microsoft’s restructuring. Since then, 343 Industries has confirmed it is resetting the Halo series. This has resulted in a refocus on Halo Infinate’s multiplayer, although no further games have been announced. While players eagerly await what is next for Halo, fans like GalacticArmory will surely continue to share their love of Master Chief for years to come.
