2 grand! They should have bought it!
Like they said, the main value is sentimental value.
Sentimental value sure but post this up on Ebay and I bet it would sell.
I love Pawn Stars. I can't believe I haven't seen this episode. I guess it's because I've been watching so much Storage Wars.
It was from this past Monday, new ep.
Dude I know... I saw this episode of Pawn Stars on Monday, but Storage Wars is my new favorite in crap TV. I keep staying up to 1am watching it and dragging ass into work the next day.
Im addicted to American Restoration and pawn stars i don't actually watch anything else reality related
You misspelt child porn.
That's almost as cool as the Portal mirrors I saw a few months back. Almost. I don't know where the guy saw one of these go for $15,000 though. That's just crazy.
Yeah $15,000 is suspect. I don't believe that price. Nightmare armor sold there's for $3,500 and it was professionally made.
I'm not quite sure what you would consider being "professionally made" in the halo suit category, but from what I saw I would consider this guys suit to be pretty professional.
Clearly assassin is saying it is people who have significant experience in designing and fabricating costumes. I have heard of nightmare armor before. They made the first halo suits and had custom size fitting for them.
That was kind of hilarious.
"I was thinking $2,000. Why, what were you thinking?" "$100."
why was there no clip lol i love watching dorky people fail at being cool seriously though like that show learn somethings never knew before about historical items edit: clip for anyone who wants to lolz
he's gotta be able to sell this to a collector at e3 or something...i mean, cmon, it's beautiful
100? That's really an insult given how much most of these suits cost to make. Obviously, they have to make a profit on whatever they're buying, but when these things typically sell for a couple grand, $100 is a downright pitiful offer.
Those guys didn't even know what Halo was. He was obviously at the wrong place. Should have tried pawning it at San Diego Comic-Con.
Hint: It's a TV show where the formula is that people bring in odd stuff and are told it's almost worthless and about half of them get upset. Then an angry ex-girlfriend comes in trying to sell something that obviously isn't really hers (power tools) and they ask her for some proof of ownership and she acts up and then leaves before they call the cops. Then when you hate humanity one really nice old guy brings in a rock that his granddad gave him before WW2 when he was ten and it turns out that it's a Clovis culture arrowhead and they pay $10,000 for it and sell it to a museum for $25,000. It's staged. If it wasn't it would be boring as hell. It would be people pawning candle sticks and samurai swords and old guitars to pay their light bills, or picking through broken jewelry and microwaves that still work.
@palaemerus Wrong show bro. Might be thinking of hardcore pawn.
$200.00? Oh gimme a break. If some video game collector walked in there and saw that he'd be all over that. Especially for being handcrafted by one person etc.
That collector would be a fanatic or dumb. No matter how good it looks it's fan made and not official merch. Real collectors know better. The suit is awesome but as a collectable it's worthless.
It's not one of the funniest moments and this is not news.. blah
this guy man. i have recon armor made it myself.
i love secret 6
that was a good deal also you get the rifle and thats better for crappy expensive halloween version
It all depends on the seller, that kid didn't stand a chance, but watch the very next clip, a pawn shop owner pwns the guys with some posters and got $1500.
The problem that some of you seem to be having is that your perceived value or even book value (the amount it cost him to make the suit) is not the same thing as the market value. There are a few problems with this: 1. It will only be appealing to a very limited market (that limited market being teenagers who probably don't have thousands of dollars to spend on a costume). 2. It was really only made to fit 1 person 3. The Pawn Shop has to be able to resell it and make money on it, so 2,000 is just way too high. 4. Because it is custom made, it cannot be compared to past sales of similar items, since the quality, craftsmanship, etc, cannot be compared. In other words, maybe some other suit that sold once for "$15,000" was made from stainless steel or something and this kids is Styrofoam. So, even though it might seem like a great find to people on a gaming forum, it really didn't make much business sense to try to get it.
What a nerd
he should of sold some battletoads LMAOOOO
'I new it wouldn’t end well for him.' Knew. The word is 'knew'. If you are going to make an article, know that the grammar nazis are out in force. I even checked my 'nazis' spelling. Apparently it's correct. A proper journalist would have no problem with this and would have made a correct assumption that 'new' and 'knew' are completely different. Thus, in my eyes, you are no longer a journalist. Because of the word 'new'. Ha.
This show is terrible.......
Errr...you do know that show is fake...right?
Goddamn not living in America, restricting videos...
"Chicks really dig it, too" REALLY?
