Holy head shot! Would you take a look at this spectacular life size LEGO built sniper rifle! I'm truly impressed by this masterpiece of Halo greatness. The Sniper Rifle System 99 Anti-Matériel was used by the UNSC Army during the Fall of Reach, and was bult by LEGO master Nick Jensen. Here are the facts...

Length: 63 inches (1.6 meters)

Weight: Approximately 10.5 pounds

Non-LEGO used: dowel rod, custom waterslide decals

Features: Removable magazine, sliding bolt, moving safety

Time spent building: about 4 months

Piece count: uhh…?

Here's what Jensen had to say about the building process:

One of the first things I worried about when I decided on building the sniper rifle was the length. It seemed that I would never build something that was going to be 5.5ft long. I thought about the project from another perspective: building the sniper rifle is like building the assault rifle but with a really long barrel. Breaking the project down into three simple parts (body, barrel, and scope) really eased some doubts I had. The sniper rifle in Halo: Reach is approximately 5.5ft long, so a tape measure locked at 5.5ft was always around for reference. I built the body of the sniper the same way I built the assault rifle, SMG, and pistol: Start from the front and build my way to the back. The barrel was easy and I had a plan in mind from the start. I would cover a supporting rod with 2×2 quarter cylinder bricks. So the only difficult tasks were the body and scope.
