Master Chief gets waxed

If your life-long dream is to see a life-size Master Chief made out of wax, today is your lucky day.

From the press release:

Madame Tussauds Las Vegas honored Xbox 360’s Halo by immortalizing Master Chief as the first video game character to be enshrined in the world famous attraction’s 250-year history. The impressively life-sized figure of Halo’s Master Chief was revealed to the world by song-writer and bass player Pete Wentz of 2007 Teen Choice Award Winner and Grammy nominated band Fall Out Boy at an official unveiling ceremony Saturday afternoon.

I’m not sure why the bass player from Fall Out Boy is there, but okay. Master Chief is looking decently cool, and is 7’2" tall, which is keeping with the game. It looks like Microsoft is pulling out all the stops in the marketing ramp-up leading up to the release of Halo 3 on September 25.

Considering that this is the first video game character to get a wax statue, I’m hoping that this will open the floodgates to more in the future. A gigantic, wax Pac-Man would be awesome.
