ENTER OUR 'HALO' HELMET DISPLAY CONTEST
To celebrate the release of our first series of Halo Helmets, we're unleashing a blockbuster contest -- and the stakes are high!
Would you call yourself an obsessive Halo fan? How creatively can you display your collection of Halo helmets? Our art department dared to dream, and through the magic of Photoshop, envisioned the ultimate wall-display configuration, featuring 117 Master Chief helmets (you would actually have to buy 39 helmet 3-packs to accomplish this!). Back in the real world, we're confident you can come up with the extreme Halo fan helmet display. Your entry must include at least three McFarlane Toys Halo helmets (one set), and your display must be actual, not virtual (like ours) -- no Photoshoppery allowed. Photograph your wall-mounted or on flat-surface display, and show us what you're made of.
