Master Chief In Wax; Chance to Play Halo 3 Early


Madama Tussauds’s in London, the world-famous wax museum, is preparing to unveil on Saturday a 7-foot 2-inch wax figure of Master Chief, the star of Halo. The Chief, who will be hitting stores in Halo 3 in a couple weeks, will be the first video game character to warrant a was figure in the 250-year history on the museum (though it would be hard to find popular video games in 1800).

The photo above was posted to GamerTagRadio from someone present during the creation process.

Also, you’ve got a chance to play Halo 3 next week and get a copy of the game a day early at events in SF and New York next week. Go to this website for tickets to the event, where you will get to play the game, and maybe be one of 1,000 to get a copy of the game on 9/24, a day ahead of the official release.

UPDATE: Here’s the first photo of the Chief in wax (or clay or something), along with some guy from Fallout Boy:


Joytiq’s got his vital stats:

  • 7 foot 2
  • 275 pounds
  • 892 man hours of work
  • ten artists
  • 1,000 pounds of clay used in all
  • Currently only seen at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, though he may be traveling eventually
