How Ben ‘Bricksters’ Caulkins brought back the fan in fantastic!
The power of the fans, is certainly a force to be reckoned with, especially fans of LEGO and Halo. And, when you combine the two, you get amazing results. Ben Caulkin’s Flickr feed is full of Lego creations. From making GlaDOS (of Portal fame) to his six month project of building a full Spartan suit model after Halo’s Master Chief. At brothers-brick.com he details some of his experiences in building this massive LEGO monument and reporting that this suit is not only beautiful to look at but completely wearable and can withstand a convention, only losing one piece and one part that came undone. These are certainly the things I hope to see in mass amounts at the very first Halo Fest that marks 10 years of Halo this fall at PAX Prime. More news about that once it becomes available. For now enjoy Benny’s Flickr photos of the Lego Spartan suit: FAN-Tastic Spartan Lego Suit.
