Another construction toy brand might have the Halo license, but that doesn’t stop LEGO fans from building characters, vehicles, and locations inspired by the venerable Xbox series from Bungie and Microsoft. Check out Pelicans, Warthogs, the Master Chief, and more LEGO Halo weapons than you can shake your armored fist at right here on The Brothers Brick.

LEGO BR55 Battle Rifle from Halo 2 does everything! “Pew Pew” not included.

Halo 2 Anniversary BR55 Battle Rifle

Nick Jensen is well known for his recreations of iconic science fiction weaponry. His latest definitely doesn’t disappoint! This gun features a see-through scope, working trigger, removable magazine and a sliding charge handle. So this isn’t just a beauty queen, meant to grace a wall or shelf. It is meant to be played with! Nicely done, Nick, nicely done.

The Spirit of Fire, four years in the making

After herculean effort, Mark Kelso (Amhakia) finally unveils the massive Halo universe SHIP he began four years ago. No less impressive than the effort itself, the final product more than manages to live up to expectations.

Seven feet long and with every inch superbly detailed, this build is truly a labor of love. Head on over to the MOCpages gallery to read Mark’s thoughts on completing this marathon of a build, or head over to his flickr if you’re inclined to scroll back to the first work in progress shots from 2010.

Motorized holographic mosaic of Halo’s Cortana

Sean and Steph Mayo are ever so innovative in their builds. They created a mosaic of Cortana from Halo featuring spinning columns of 1×1 transparent round plates. You have to see the video for the incredible effect. You can read more about this building technique on MosaicBricks.

Master Cheese

We see a lot of bright green and dark green Master Chiefs built from LEGO, but the legendary John-117 SPARTAN II super-soldier from Halo is actually wearing olive green armor.

Tyler (Legohaulic) recently picked up over a hundred “cheese” slopes in the new color, and this is the result.

The most accurate LEGO Master Chief? By no means, but this is an absolute tour-de-force in single-part repetition, and certainly the first Master Chief sculpture in the correct color. It’ll be interesting to see what other new LEGO models this new color will inspire.

Catsy’s micro Halo Ringworld in LEGO is still 5 feet across!

We’re not even close to being done featuring all the awesome LEGO models debuted at BrickCon 2012 earlier this month. I had the privilege of hanging out with Catsy as he assembled his LEGO Halo ringworld for the first time right there at the con — it was simply too huge to fully assemble at home!

Nearly three years in the making, Catsy’s ring is built from more than 11,000 bricks and spans just under 5 feet. Catsy tells us that it’s 1,467 mm wide, to be precise.

Halo Ringworld

The construction techniques Catsy used to build this took some serious engineering prowess. Here’s Catsy in his own words:

The outer ring (hull) consists of eight more or less identical segments (with minor variations in texture or the use of old gray for contrast), each 72 studs long. The inner ring (landscape) floats freely within the outer ring and stays in place purely by friction and tension.

The photo above shows off the overall detail really nicely, but I just love this next view.

LEGO Architecture Forerunner Spire from Halo (no, not really)

The LEGO Halo group over on Flickr is hosting a contest that challenges LEGO builders to design their own sets to counter the fact that one of LEGO’s competitors has the Halo license.

Théo (Titolian) joins the fray with this fake LEGO Architecture set. It’s an interesting little structure, wonderfully presented and immediately recognizable.

(And please, dear readers, do not suggest — as several on Flickr already have — that this would be a great LEGO CUUSOO project. Ain’t gonna happen…)

An Exception to Every Rule

I try to avoid posting LEGO creations based on the Halo games; there are simply too many of them around, and I don’t really think anyone wants to see another attempt at a Warthog. This diorama by legomocs. forced my hand, though. The micro scale frigate is nicely rendered, as is the accompanying Covenant spire, but neither is what caught my attention. The shape of the diorama and the angle of the ship combine to give this creation a great sense of motion. It’s difficult not to imagine the continuing flight path of the frigate, after seeing this one moment caught in time.
