Trials and Tribulations

Just another weblog


Madame Tussauds Las Vegas honored Xbox 360s Halo by immortalizing Master Chief as the first video game character to be enshrined in the world famous attractions 250-year history. The impressively life-sized figure of Halos Master Chief was revealed to the world by song-writer and bass player Pete Wentz of Grammy nominated band Fall Out Boy at an official unveiling.“For me, the launch of Halo 3 will be the entertainment event of the year. It will be as big as or bigger than any of the summers movie blockbusters,” said Wentz. “Master Chief is as much of a hero today as characters like Spiderman, Frodo and Luke Skywalker were for previous generations.”
Master Chief stands at an impressive 72” tall, with an approximate finished weight of 275 lbs. Positioned at the front steps of the Las Vegas attraction, Master Chief provides guests with a “disarming” greeting at the door. Holding his assault rifle, he looks ready for battle but actually hes just ready for a photo. All guests are invited to get up close to the stoic soldier and pose for pictures, and to see in person the artistic details that bring this famed video game hero to life.

This is the first time in Madame Tussauds 250-year history that a figure of a computer-generated video game hero has been made, attesting to the fact that not only has Master Chief arrived in Vegas, but he has also arrived to the celebrity status that Madame Tussauds has become famous for celebrating.
