Hey guys i’m back with a MONSTER custom-Pillar of Autumn, this time, made out of 90% Mega bloks (10% was from the 2 big thruster I have to craft in cardboard and bucket
Pillar of Autumn was one of most well known ship in halo history and it also had one of the most important role. Back in 2014, Timmega made a poll on what signature series should they made, PoA was one of them but lost to a scarab by 100 votes and it got either 200-300 votes
Pillar of Autumn was one of the ship that I’ve been Waiting for from at least Goodwill Hunter and Carbon from Spartan bloks but since I never seen it from them, I went to give it a try
That build became the biggest, Best,harddest,most fragile, most challenging build me and Tyler (Halo Zone 24/ Zelot2468 ) ever accomplished
It took me 3 attempt to final made it (1 last year, 1 at 1 month ago and one about 3-4 weeks ago) When I made the 1st attempt, I lost interest and move on to Heavy Cruiser. 2nd time I got frustrated because it kept tipping over and crash. At my 3rd time, I decide to split to 5 parts and make it where I have to be connected by 2 clip-on pegs on sets like warthog and it WORK (Like others said:3 times the charm)
WARNING: THERE’S ALOT OF PIC FROM HERE DOWN
HFFL: For a kid’s custom, I’d say he’s done a fantastic job here!
This part is very easy build to do, I could even give out tutorial but I don’t feel like it lol
Front ViewHFFL: Nice bits of detail here.
This is the 2nd most easiest part of the build, I could make 1st and second part in a day!
I was planned on doing interior for 4th but I decide to just do a small pilot room in 2nd
HFFL: What I like here is that he took the time to add a small interior space for a figure. Also note Cortana! That blue panel you see is from the Mega Bloks Scarab set. Nice addition Dylan!
This is BY Far the most fragile build, it took me a long time to figure out the solution and keep it together
This part is the hardest part of the build, it took me quite awhile to make
HFFL: Great shot showing some of the inner detail between the plates of armor.
The 5th part was 2nd most fragile part of the build, it took me 2 weeks to make this
The 2 giant thruster were made out of 2 clay container and cardboard wrapped around to make a appropriate size
HFFL: If I have any criticism, it’s here at the engine block. However, given the limited parts Dylan had to use, I think he came up with a good solution. Remember folks, this is a KID’S custom!
This build is 2.11 feet long and about 1.2 feet tall
With SetsHFFL: Quite large, huh? Man, I’d LOVE to see Mega Bloks make an official Pillar of Autumn set. It would likely be much smaller. I’m okay with that though.
This is a gallery of photos that don’t exactly have a home
HFFL: Yep, its huge!
Thanks for viewing. This is by FAR the best custom custom We’ve ever accomplished!
