    May 30, 2006, 11:05 PM - Mjolnir Mark V or VI? #1

    Alright, so the Mark V armor looks easier to make, but the VI looks...cooler. Any comments?

    P.S. I'm talking about the Halo series.

    of course. just copy and paste the links...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Halo.JPG Halo 2, or Mjolnir VI

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Masterchiefshoot.jpg Halo 1 Mjolnir V


    These are bad pics, but if you do a few searches, then you might find more. I still don't know how to get pics directly from the game.

    [Edit]
    nvm, the links work

    I must be the weird one who actually likes the Mark V better. But only just a little. Both are cool, and I'd take either one, because, ya know, it's Mjolnir armor!

    When you get started on it, I want pictures! And a free set when you make it!

    i've already cut out the templates i drew up on my computer, and i'm just deciding if i should keep saving my money for an Xbox 360 or go all out on this. I've got about $125 right now, and that would easily pay for the type of armor i'm making (2 garbage cans and some underarmour ) any suggestions?


    BTW: if i decide to make this armor, then i think i'll do Halo 1 armor because its a lot smoother and will be a lot easier to make out of a garbage can.

    [edit]
    no free samples!!!!!

    I have a 360, it sits in a corner. Its ok but the games are no challenge and there hardly any titles. I'm personal waiting for Nintendo Mi now.

    I'd go with the armor, over time you will definitly get more enjoyment out of it than a cookiecutter game consol.

    I have a set of mark vi armor i am working on, and i have a finished mark vi helmet with a motorcycle visor. i did all my stuff by eye and just cut out two of everything when need be. i still have to finish all the leg armor and then make a upper body fabric piece for the the torso.

    i'd be interested in seeing what you've made so far with templates and materials.

    as far as the 360 goes. it's a piece of junk and the only game that's cool is elder scrolls. save your money


    video games have gone way down hill. there aren't any stories anymore, just graphics and guns. i still have my n64, psx, nintendo, SNES, sega, and atari. even my xbox doesn't seem outdated to me even though people treat it like its obsolete now since 360 is out.

    Well the armor was named after his hammer actually.


    I personally like both, Mark VI for the reason that it's more complex and lighter, Mark V for the fact that it actually looks MORE like armor.
    I could go on and on about the quality of games and the like but I'll save that.

    Also buy a 360 this holiday season, they're saying that it'll be dropping $100 in price to combat the other next gens. That's why I don't have one yet.

    Hey Katua Fett, hit me up on live, my tag's LickyMcLicklick (haha don't ask..). I play Halo 2 ALOT (not really a fan of ranked games though).

    Yeah Nightmare armor is cool and all but Microsoft layed down the smack down and sued the pants off them. I think the only way they can make armor now is if it's for Microsoft. Plus I believe it may have had a $3k price tag. eeck

    Hmm...that whole "lawsuit" issue is a big issue. I think I'll reconsider, at least until more people make it after the movie comes out. Then Microsoft might be a little more relaxed with their copyrights on the armor.

    Gabe 034's got some AMAZING armor over at clonetroopers.net....here's the link.

    http://clonetroopers.net/Forum/index.php?showtopic=2658

    you might have to go to like page 3 or 4 to find what he has all done, but he's got pix all over that thread. the most amazing thing is that he's using plastic storage totes to make all of it my kind of armor making.

    I think that youd be find with the lawsuite bs as long as you just make it for yourself and not sell it.
