The thing looks crap. Looks like some kid has just gotten some clay and called himself "Nightmare Armor Studios".

Seriously, I havent looked into great detail on the rocket launcher, but that does not look like it. And wheres the "hold like this" diagram and the big SPNKR logo?

Yeah really, it might have looked semi-better if they had done all the stickers...The model doesn't look too bad but theres no detail in it compared to the real one.

@twistedsymphony

That is a MUCH better replica, you're very right.

Yeah, that is some serious crap...can't believe (or BELIEVE in M$ marketing speak) that the thing is already up to over 150 bones. I also can't believe the guy put a reserve on the auction higher than that.

If I were to buy the Legendary Edition for $130, and hot glue the helmet statue to this rocket launcher, and then sell the whole deal, I wouldn't be able to sell it for even the Limited Edition price.

I should almost make it my mission to make something better looking than that...out of paper mache, no less, for a bit more of a challenge...

and it looks like that is the exact person they are looking to buy this thing.

to echo everyone's responses, this does not look professionally done at all, and how can they claim in all caps that the rocket launcher has "GREAT" detail when there really is not much detail at all as the majority of the replica is just smooth.

and how is it 24 pounds - or is that just another way to make some more cash by charging the $60 that they are asking for shipping?

if you make something Halo-related and call it "rare" or "collectible", then you can easily make a profit from some fool...

I'm going to take a dump, freeze it then carve the Halo 3 logo into it with a Dremel. Only one ever made. I'll make a fortune on eBay!
