UNSC Infinity
Built as a response to Mega Bloksí terrible excuse for the Forward Unto Dawn, but also because itís been a while since Iíve built a ship.
About this creation
Music, to enhance the mood:




ĒItís been four years since the end of the war and today we send forth; a vessel designed for battle, but now repurposed, for peace. Home to seventeen-thousand of our best, our brightest. This, is the culmination of human achievement. For the first time in a generation, we commission a UNSC Starship meant not to wage war, but to peacefully advance the cause of mankind through the discovery of new worlds.Ē From the Halo 4 Live Action Trailer



As you read above, this build was a response to how much better Lego builders are than those MB ĎMasterí builders. Now, of course, this isnít a 100% exact, scaled replica of the UNSC Infinity. Sometimes you must build big to get everything right, but my part count restricts the build from being fully accurate. Fun-fact: this is the first Halo vessel I built that wasnít named after one of the employees of 343/Bungie.

Every photo I took of it had to be gimped, because I donít have a full-fledged photography set-up or backgrounds that can fully cover the entire frame. So, I cropped everything but the ship itself and replaced the background with my favourite colour.

The next few pictures will be full shots, with info on the actual photo.












=The Bow=



Unlike the Salvatori, Staten, and Almaden, I built the bow first, mainly because most of the concept photos showed the very front.




I actually started building a Marathon Class Cruiser, but quit after I saw how well I could match the front of the Infinity in Lego.





Other ship enthusiasts will criticize me from not over-greebling. If I did, it would be inaccurate, weird, I donít have enough of those parts for proper technical areas, AND why give the enemy hints on what to hit? (Ya, ya the Infinity isnít for War, but it holds the Spartan IV program so it may as well be.)




I flat out didnít try to make the bottom pretty, since itís so hard to get shots of the underside, plus, the ship was on a very uneasy stand (which broke twice, making me reassemble parts of the ship).



=Portside=



Unlike the Almaden, this ship is structured studs up.




There, you wierdos, hereís some greebling.




This is the only part of the ship where I saw technical areas I could actually build. The blue, yellow, and grey trans are hangers (may not be there on the actual ship, but I couldnít locate them on the concept, so I plopped them there).




The hardest part; whatever this circular thing is. Now, based on the fact that Halo 4ís multiplayer experience is actually in this holographic deck onboard the Infinity, I assume that circular part is said chamber.




I couldnít make a circle, not by a long shot, so I settled with an octagon. The build in this section is definitely the messiest.




Both over and under the greebled section is angled brick walls, that turned out really well.



=The Aft=



The last part of the ship built is probably the least accurate, due to limited concept photos, and a bit of a rush to get the whole project soon before I have to move out.




Despite how inaccurate it is, I really like how it looks.




I actually donít know what to say here, um, the angles are nice?




Iím not good with engines, so I settled for this.




Like I said above, Iím not good with engines. These should actually be bigger than they are.




Okay, so this part of the underside is a bit smoother than the rest.




I like how this part turned out.



I made a video, mainly to display areas of the ship that may be difficult to view in photo form. (Yes, I need a haircut)




Thank you for viewing this, please rate and/or comment. I did a lot of work on this and it wasnít easy, so any support is greatly appreciated.

I will cover the whole Ďme moving outí thing in an Update that will be released soon-ish.

Once again, please rate and/or comment, if you came this far you obviously liked what you saw.

great job and everything, but i personally have no problem with Mega Bloks, i think they're equal to if not better than the Lego company's master builders. and they're available at a lower price than Lego but still have best quality didn't mean to go on a rant but that was just bothering me for some reason

Overall a nice build, yet, it seems to be lacking "oomph" on something this big it would have been really cool to see interior work too! I know that it would be nowhere near scale, but I hope that perhaps you might continue this work onto further greatness!

Quoting dino man Not to be rude, but the UNSC infinity is longer than the way you built it. You made is shorter. The width and angles are good, but the length of it makes it look bad. That is why I put 2 rating.
Watch the video. Really though, you see one flaw and automatically give it the second lowest rating? I rate you a 0/5. EDIT: I see you just joined this site and have not rated any other creation. You're obviously some kid I must have upset over on YouTube.

Quoting Zach Jones Looks just like the Infinity in the Halo 4 trailer.
No, really?

Nicely done, Dude! Some cool details, but I think it's the overall shape that really makes it work. Wicked!

Nice! I have no idea what it's supposed to look like, though I agree it could benefit from some added length. All in all though, this thing is awesome.

A very nice ship! You're right, the angles are smashing, and the overall design is sound too. Very eye-catching. Keep on brickin'!

A really great ship, I don't play halo, and I don't use Megabloks so I don't know how they ruined it, however, I do know a little bit about lego. This is a great Lego ship! The shaping is good, the Greeblings believably lacking and the use of tiles and angles perfect it! Well done! If you have a spare moment would you mind checking this out? http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/338185

Quoting Michael Rutherford -cut-
I was referring to the faults I pointed out, and that if someone were to comment about a said fault, it would be rather redundant.

A very satisfying UNSC ship from you. I particularly liked the front part of the ship, and as always the angles on this thing make it one of the cleanest and well-designed ships for this scale on the 'pages. Everyone else has basically said it already: it needs to be longer or the scale has to be shrunk, but it still looks great regardless and I know why you couldn't lengthen it. Great job!

I've never played Halo so I can't comment on the accuracy, but by any standard this is a great build, big, smooth and with lots of tricky angles. Well done!

Very well done. I think this ship was greebled nicely. It wasn't overdone, but the areas that you focused on were really effective. The engines look great for someone who claims that he isn't good at them. The octagonal part of the ship isn't the cleanest part of the ship, but you're too hard on yourself. It still goes well with the rest of the ship. Nice work, sir.

Eric!.... I watched the movie, and there was some strange man with a fluffy under beard directing it! I don't understand..... I thought you would be the star with your beeyuetifull blonde hair and blue eyes.....! I just don't know anymore..... Ok. Hope that got you laughing. Anyways another great moc, my favorite part has got to be the tilted snot sections. Thy make it look so streamlined and handsome like me ;)

Well, you don't want a critique of the MOC, so letís look at your video itself. It's dichotomous. "There is probably a lot of things I could fix, that I know I could have fixed, so letís not comment about that." You only want people to comment about the parts that can't be improved? You express some distress about relatively low levels of feedback on flikr. The highly restrictive nature of your request for feedback might have a dampening effect on peoples willingness to comment. Phrased differently: Many people use feedback as a tool for gaining insights into better building or for learning what aspects of their work are displeasing to their audience. I only point this out because you specifically mention (in your video) how you are distressed at your lack of positive feedback. Pleasing an audience isn't automatically the best thing to do in life, but it is essential IF you want that audience to provide praise. So... listen to them and incorporate their input. Or... suckitup cupcake. Attack!

It is very fat compared to the real thing, but I had to settle for this.

I did watch the video, I also gave it a like :P. The thing is, you could make a smaller version, that way you could make it longer and thinner.

Quoting TRON 117 It looks okay but you have it too bundled up.It needs to be longer. other wise. good job
Quoting Perry B. Very nice, this is better than what those MB 'master' builders could make. I really like the smoothness of this, though I'd like to see a longer and thinner version.
I take it you guys didn't watch the video, where I explain how it needs to be longer, but couldn't due to to me running out of parts.

Nice work, I like the bulky design of this. The smoothness and the angles are also good, and this looks very militaristic. The use of colour is superb, it's not too mottled but neither is it plain. Excellent ship!
