Master Chief unveiled at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas
Madame Tussauds Las Vegas honored Xbox 360’s Halo by immortalising Master Chief as the first video game character to be enshrined in the world famous attraction’s 250-year history.

The life-sized figure of Halo’s Master Chief was created at the Madame Tussauds Studios in London specifically for the Las Vegas attraction. Master Chief stands at 7’2” tall, with an approximate finished weight of 275 lbs. A total of 10 studio artists worked on the massive figure, dedicating an estimated 892 man-hours for the finalisation of the soldier.

Total man-hours included 687 hours for sculpting, 168 hours for molding, and 37 hours for painting. Materials included over 1,000 pounds of clay.

Visitors to Madame Tussauds Las Vegas will have the opportunity to see the figure up close and personal before the Halo 3 release on 25 September 2007. Master Chief will be stationed at the attraction’s front entrance area.

In addition to getting their picture taken with the legendary Master Chief at Madame Tussauds, Halo 3 fans will have the opportunity to purchase an array of Halo licensed products, at the Madame Tussauds Las Vegas location in addition to other gaming, specialty, and traditional retailers courtesy of Microsoft’s exclusive Halo 3 licensing agent 20th Century Fox Licensing & Merchandising.

In “Halo 3,” the third installment of the “Halo” trilogy and hugely anticipated sequel to the acclaimed “Halo 2,” people everywhere can take on the role of Master Chief and experience Master Chief’s greatest battle as he launches an epic mission to stop the Covenant, destroy the impending Flood threat and ultimately save mankind.
