    What a joke. Halo is okay but by no means the best FPS.
    I think Gordon Freeman would be more appropriate.

    We have 2 of these 7ft halo figures at our office, admitedtly our's are made out of plastic and not wax, which is prob for the best seeing as everyne likes to get there dirty paws all over them. It does have to be said that they do look fricken cool and the amount of detail in these is amazing!
    However I dont really feel that Madame Tussauds is the right place for such a model, to have a wax model made of a celeb is from what I understood, is quite an honor I thought. So its a kind of a kick in the teeth to the celebs (even if some of them do need it), to insert a wax model from a game.

    Can just imagine taking my kids in later years to Madame Tussauds discussing the models and the history behind them, look there is the Queen/Queen mother, there's old Arnie, and there is Hitler, oh and look there is the Master Chief from Halo X :eyebrow:
    It just dont fit in Madame Tussauds, maybe better suited for the episode Meltdown from Red Dwarf :geek:

    QFT!!!!!
    Freeman would be more ideal, yet I still feel that no game character should be in Tussauds.

    Madame Tussauds is about popular culture and history, I think the Master Chief fits quiet nicely there! I'm sure that xbox/halo fans (like myself) would be scream if a PS character was choosen. But if they are putting the master chief in, are we going to see mario and sonic next???

    Big Daddy and Little sister combo would be great - especially if you throw in a splicer for a dramatic scene

    What about a full scale UEF ACU:p

    I don't know, the cheif is seriously cool, so i don't mind. I think there should be an inbuilt sensor so when someone walks by, it says a one liner or something.

    Unfortunately she did not make it as far as that before I stole the adam from her, oops, maybe I should have snapped a picture of her and hand it to Cohen to get some bonus points. :geek:

    There are a lot of BTers that live in Oxon/Berks/Bucks/Wilts. We ought to do a get together (at the expense of the BT team of course) one day.

    I hop on a train in an instant.

    Delphium, if I worked with you, I'd be fired for stealing. Those are awesome to the max.
