To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the franchise and the release of Halo: Infinite, Microsoft has teamed up with Swarovski to craft crystal Master Chief Mjolnir helmets and Energy Swords. I don’t know about you, but I could see either dangling proudly from a gold chain around my neck.
Swarovski created 117 of the helmets and swords (in honor of Master Chief’s Spartan number), which will be given away to fans in raffles via visiting a Swarovski store and scanning a QR code, or entering online at their website. I just created eight new email addresses to increase my winning chances and will be absolutely crushed if I don’t get one.
Master Chief’s Mjolnir helmet was cut from a single crystal and contains 140 facets, and the Energy Sword was constructed from 13 crystal pieces with 204 total facets. The helmet also includes a tinted visor portion, so you know it’s Master Chief’s and not just some dirt bike helmet. That will be an important distinction when I’m reselling the one I win from the contest on eBay.
