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!

You can get more than that off of ebay, mate. Go there and do it, or Amazon.com, never tried that one though.
The fact that the kid is probably 5'5" or 5'6" really hurts his chances of selling it. The ones that sell for thousands are custom made for certain body types.
Though some idiot on eBay would buy it in like 5 minutes.
I love the show. I've seen every episode. He just needs to try to sell it somewhere else. That armor was awesome, someone somewhere will want it.
That was an awesome episode lololololol
