Prior to purchasing this item, I spent a great deal of time researching this costume. This costume got great ratings and feedbacks from almost every website, and so I decided to get this Halo Supreme Edition suit by Rubies as a Christmas present for me. Now I wish I didn't. Lets start with the positive things about this suit...First, it's a decent replica of Halo Master Chief's suit. Second, I got it from Amazon for less than the suggested retail price. Third, free shipping from Amazon was awesome - fast and the box arrived in great condition ;)
Now, the bad news. First, this suit was made in China and it shows ;#. The ABS plastic is downright cheap and painful...alot of the edges are rough and have not been sanded down. The velcro used to attach the pieces are badly glued...glue marks are every where. On some of the gear items, the velcro could not hold together because plastic panels were rivoted badly. My leg and thigh pieces that are put together differently...inconsistent overlapping of panels, exposed seams, and poor rivoting. I'm not an expert on ABS armor manufacturing, but man, where's the quality control inspector? It's brutal. And yes, the quilted jump suit is hot - be warned - you need to have long torso and short leg to fit this jump suit. I'm 5'10", 44R chest, 33R pants, 180 lbs, and athletic built, and this jumpsuit was a little long for me.
I'm glad I bought this item early - got 10 more months until Halloween. I have time to tailor the jumpsuit to fit me right...might have to convert the jump suit into a two-piece suit, add more velcro patches, and install a zipper in the front of the pants for those quick restroom stops. In addition, I need to reglue some of the broken hooks and re-rivot the various armor panels the right way. This is more than what I originally had in mind.
The bottom line is that you might not get that awesome suit you see on the box. It may require some sweat and cash to make it right...so, give yourself some time. Hope this review helps.
As soon as I opened the box I was let down. The pieces are all made out of pretty thin plastic and a few of the Velcro straps were coming off just from trying to pull the pieces apart.
I didn't even open the helmet because I already planned on returning the suit, but the visor was visible and didn't look at all like the picture.
I'd say this costume might be worth about $150 at most.
After being so disappointed I did a little searching and found a site that has instructions for making a pretty sweet looking Master Chief costume for about $400 for all the materials. It sounds kind of time consuming, but I'm going to give it a shot.
Here is the website incase anyone is interested:
Shoe covers: Designed for Size 8 feet or smaller, the part that holds both parts together is made with nylon band [not elastic] so it doesn't even fit AT ALL (size 10.5)
Shin gaurds: Ok.
Thigh armor: Tendency to slide down, also the velcro strips were falling off the plastic.
Crotch/Ass armor: Actually not too bad.
Pouches x2: one of the clips glued onto these pieces fell off immediately, the other was already floating around in the bag.
Chest piece: Very detailed, not too bad.
Upper arm: has 2 metal hooks instead of velcro, need someone to help you put this piece on, also easy to fall off.
Lower arm: Decent.
Gloves: Probably an M, definitely tight if you wear L gloves.
Helmet: Build quality is ok but the appearance of the visor is terrible--its half completely opaque with the tiny oval shaped middle that's clear. Doesn't look at all like the picture for the item. Also, one of the lights didn't always work.
Overall: uncomfortable, really hot (probably would be comfortable in 40F weather), and ill-fitting, not worth $500. At this point, I might just go to a party with just the crappy helmet.
The helmet was the first thing to catch my eye as I opened the box. It is large, padded, and contains two blue lights just like in the game. Awesome.
The other pieces aren't so great. A black padded suit forms the base layer and my copy had a small rip in the chest area which allowed the foam padding to start leaking out. The plastic components are very thin (think of flimsy takeout food container material) with sharp edges. This lack of quality is definitely not worth the price.
There isn't much else to say. While the costume looks cool it seems that the manufacturer took some shortcuts instead of making this a truly "deluxe" costume.
