Behind the scenes
The Hall of History was in some aspects inspired by the Museum of Humanity in the Believe campaign for Halo 3, where the efforts, achievements, and heroism of the UNSC, Master Chief, and humanity at at whole were shown.
Master Chief and Elite statue
BLUEWHALE Studios created the life-sized statue Master Chief and Elite statue. The head of the Elite statue was made by Matthew Silva of Blue Whale Studios, he sculpted it using 3D printing and added details using clay. Several reference images of Elites were provided by 343 Industries to assist in the creation of this statue. A hand of the Elite was sculpted by Jonah Levy of BLUEWHALE Studios.
Parker Brothers Concepts created the M12 Warthog seen in the Experience. The Warthog used at the event started out as a Nissan Leaf, this was due to how 343 Industries wanting the platform to be electric which the Nissan Leaf provided. Parker Brothers went through the specifications with CAD drawings with a team at 343 Industries to make sure everything was right before Parker went to get the body made.
Board and background
Studio 41B created the set pieces that themed the whole experience at Outpost Discovery. They fabricated created the Needler, and several crates that were seen at the event. The Hall of History Board was made of fabric with placeholder text so the information can be added later.
