Halo Grunt
The bottom of the Covenant food chain.
About this creation
After much procrastination, I finally got around to making a Grunt. These are the Ultra and Spec Ops versions respectively. It’s hard to get much detail in such a small fig, but I’m pretty happy with the overall shape.

And for those people wondering about the stability of my designs I have stated before that they are not really meant for four year old little brothers to throw around the house, but when used in dioramas and vignettes etc. they work great. They are all very poseable, and once posed, they are actually very stable and can be easily handled...except for that darn Jackal body! ;-)


But everyone is certainly entitled to their own opinion...and thanks for looking!

   This is the Ultra, the highest rank a Grunt can aspire to. Keep in mind; this is a Halo 2 Grunt…the Halo 1 Grunt looks a bit different, especially the eyes.



Enlarge image
   There was no cutting of pieces here, but the black levers I used for eyes had to be bent down slightly to fit in the hollow of the back wedge piece. They straighten back out very easily though. Getting the two levers through the face piece in the first place? Now that was a pain. Using the older style levers with smaller hinge ends helps a lot.

   Comparison pic. Grunts actually have dark grey skin, but Lego doesn’t make dark grey lever bases (for the feet), so I went with black. I tried light gray but it didn’t look that good. Also, the Ultra’s armor is really white, but it looks kind of silvery here, so that’s what I used.

   The Ultra, with my Fuel Rod Cannon. Again, this is from Halo 2 as opposed to the Fuel Rod Gun from Halo 1.



Enlarge image
   I think the Cannon turned out pretty decent, and it’s very easily held by normal mini-figs.



Enlarge image
   This is the Spec Ops version. I know it’s kind of a pain that the hands can’t hold standard Lego weapons properly, but it just matched the look of the actual Grunt’s arm so well.

   Pic for comparison to the next shot.



Enlarge image
   Comparison pic. I tried a light grey face but it didn't look good and as I mentioned before Lego doesn't make that piece in dark grey.



Enlarge image
   “Hey, you’re the new guy, huh? Welcome aboard! Say…did you hear about the company’s recreational league basketball team? We’re called the Fightin’ Bytes…pretty cool, huh? Anyway, we play on Thursday nights and Steve from I.T, who was our center got injured at the company picnic, and I was wondering if…ah, you might be interested in…well…hmm…just how tall are you?”



Enlarge image
   Family pic of the original four Covenant species. Grunts are four to five feet tall without their armor, so this guy fits in pretty well scale wise.

Hands down, the best Grunt. Ever. Also, is there any special way you made those Minifig hands wedge inside those lever bases? I've been trying for 10 minutes, and can't seem to do it.

MOC of the day!! You know, the weird thing is, I just saw this yesterday. This is really good. I am glad that you actually BUILT it, in stead of just using decals. I do not know how people use that joint system. It never works for me. Oh well. Great job.

Somehow I missed this creation between your others. I gotta hand it to you - I do find this wacky little guy appealing. I guess he's just kind of... well... cute! :-P The only thing negative I'm gonna say is that I disagree with people who say the Grunts have grey skin - certainly looks bluish to me! Or perhaps a bit purplish... but anyway; doesn't matter. Good job! 5/5 as usual.

not bad, the covenant family looks very nice as well as the whole collection of halo mocs. THe spec ops looks best. Not the best of yours but it is one to be reconized, definantly. I really liked the fuel rod cannon though, its very good! Overall, nice job!

The front kinda lacks the chunky feel the front of a Grunt has, but hey, I have most of those pieces in bulk. I'll just test it for myself! Your Halo stuff rules when compared to most Halo Lego creators!

Easily the best Grunt I've seen. It does look kind of fragile, though. But it does use very unique construction techniques, and looks close to the game. An excellent MOC.

now brian you know that im a big fan of your creations and i love these figs but im thinking thta they are a bit un playable i would almost be afraid to touch them in fear of making them fall apart oh well 5/5 oh and now you need to build prophets and drones and then brutes and a banshee(rambles on about all the other things you should make ) .
 I like it

Hmm... I don't know.I think it's not really playable, if you used a minifig torso it probably would be better.Other than that, It's really good.
