The lights are on
Halo's MJOLNIR Assault Armor is a technological marvel, protecting its wearer from weapons, radiation, and other hazards. It has a regenerating shield that soaks up damage, making members of the SPARTAN program one of the most survivable forces in the galaxy. How much is a suit of the stuff worth? As a wearer learns on the History Channel's Pawn Stars show, the answer is "not much."
The segment starts with our leotard-clad hero unboxing various parts of the suit. After modeling it in the store, he explains that he's seen similar suits sell for as much as $15,000. Fortunately, he's setting his sights to a more realistic figure of $2,000, which he plans to use to pay off some debt. He estimates that he spent 700 or so hours building the suit.
Watch the episode here to see a young man's dreams smashed into a million particles. The Halo part starts right around the 3 minute mark, if you're one of those impatient types.
Thanks for the tip, Edwin!
