At last, Lasky finally got to see and meet his Big brother.
From my point of view at this, it look awesome. (How should i describe this without the knowledge of halo's history of Master Chief...) It's pretty cool for them to get reunited at last. Big Brother-Little brother.
The only thing accurate here is Master Cheef. What really annoys me is the fact that the Marines have Halo Reach Marine helmets and their armor isn't even close to the actual Marines armor in Halo 3. Well, they could've advanced in new armor designs of course. But still, it looks like plastic airsoft armor. Seems like a good series though.
Well, there's only so much money available for costumes and creature effects. I'll bet that the Chief's Moljinir armour and the various Covvie species cost a packet.
However, consider this: it's an academy. The cadets are wearing their training "armour" (probably just a sensor suit for determining when they were 'killed' by a stun pellet) in this publicity image, not actual combat gear.
